Стр. 222 - Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace ; and labour, working with our own hands...
Стр. 29 - I was by him, as one brought up with him : and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. Rejoicing in the habitable parts of his earth, and my delights we're with the sons of men.
Стр. 119 - His death under every circumstance of shame and cruelty was resolved upon. And thousands no doubt there were in Jerusalem, timid, well-to-do people, who thought of him with horror as a very bad and dangerous man. Poor, and without a single person of any influence to befriend him, he was doomed. In a few hours he was to be dragged through the streets of the city by a brutal soldiery, and to perish miserably on the vile Cross. And what, in strict truth, had he done to cause this deadly hate ? What...
Стр. 221 - For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death : for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
Стр. 244 - On the other hand, those who have lost an infant are never, as it were, without an infant child. They are the only persons who, in one sense, retain it always, and they furnish their neighbours with the same idea. The other children grow up to manhood and womanhood, and suffer all the changes of mortality. This one alone is rendered an immortal child. Death has arrested it with his kindly harshness, and blessed it into an eternal image of youth and innocence.
Стр. 222 - I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers : for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
Стр. 271 - Eejoice, and again I say, rejoice in the conviction that, let men struggle and resist or ignore it as much as they please, they must bow to it sooner or later. It is their destiny. It is written in the book of Fate. Truth must conquer and reign and put all enemies under its feet. The whole Universe,— every atom of it, is bound by the Almighty to serve it. At this very hour, disheartening as the aspect of the world may be, Truth is alive like the light with the life of God. In unnumbered ways it...
Стр. 29 - The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old. * * * Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: * * * When He prepared the heavens, I was there : when He set a compass on the face of the deep * * Then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him ; and I was daily His delight.
Стр. 246 - Hunt. 21* used, not on account of any mystical sanctity supposed to be resident in the baptismal water, but as a sign and expression of the sacred desire of the parents to keep their child unspotted from the world, then it is impressive and edifying. But, as it is very widely regarded in the Christian world, namely as essential to the salvation of the infant...
Стр. 305 - It finds no pleasure in iniquity, although it pursues and denounces it so faithfully that it might seem to find satisfaction therein. It is infinite in fortitude and fidelity and hope, believing amidst the unbelieving, hopeful among the hopeless. It is more excellent than prophecy, for it is itself prophetic of the highest good. It is better than knowledge, for it leads to all knowledge. Out of...
