Seite 164 - If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain ; if thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not ; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works...
Seite 51 - There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Seite 52 - And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? "For the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Seite 50 - A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death : they shall stone them with stones ; their blood shall be upon them.
Seite 83 - ... hath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth...

Seite 128 - Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities. For we know not what we should pray for as we ought : But the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Seite 87 - I dressed as the noble dress, In cloth of silver and gold, With silk, and satin, and costly furs, In many an ample fold ; But I never remembered the naked limbs That froze with winter's cold. " The wounds I might have healed ! The human sorrow and smart ! And yet it never was in my soul To play so ill a part : But evil is wrought by want of Thought, As well as want of Heart...
Seite 33 - O'ertop the lofty wood that skirts the wild : A vagabond and useless tribe there eat Their miserable meal. A kettle, slung Between two poles upon a stick transverse, Receives the morsel — flesh obscene of dog, Or vermin, or at best of cock purloined From his accustomed perch.
