Стр. 141 - Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them, for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his Eternal Power and God-head, so that they are without excuse...
Стр. 389 - Where is the wise ? where is the scribe ? where is the disputer of this world ? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world ? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Стр. 189 - O'ER the gloomy hills of darkness, Look, my soul, be still and gaze ; All the promises do travail With a glorious day of grace. Blessed jubilee, Let thy glorious morning dawn.
Стр. 63 - ... judgment, for having paid more attention to their dumb idols, than we have to the worship of the living and true God. The Chinese sailors are, generally, as intimated above, from the most debased class of people. The major part of them are opiumsmokers, gamblers, thieves, and fornicators.

Стр. 95 - ... there are numerous revolts, which are repressed with great difficulty, because the leaders, withdrawing to the mountains, stand out against the government to the very uttermost. In no part of China are executions so frequent as they are here ; and in no place do they produce a less salutary influence. The literati are very successful ; and people in Fuhkeen sometimes send their sons to Formosa to obtain literary degrees.
Стр. 60 - On account of having, with great fortitude, and by a kind miracle, saved her brother who was on the point of drowning, she was deified and loaded with titles, not dissimilar to those bestowed on the Virgin Mary. Every vessel is furnished with an image of this goddess, before which a lamp is kept burning. Some satellites, in hideous shape, stand round the portly queen, who ia always represented in a sitting posture.
Стр. 234 - The word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword — and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Стр. 387 - So general degradation in religion. makes it almost impossible that females should have their proper rank in society. They are the slaves and concubines of their masters ; live and die in ignorance, and every effort to raise themselves above the rank assigned them, is regarded as impious arrogance.
Стр. xxiv - ... is preserved, disseminated, and inculcated, is understood. In his exceedingly interesting philological work, the " Chinese Miscellany," Dr. Morrison states, that the " Chinese language is now read by a population of different nations, amounting to a large proportion of the human race, and over a very extensive geographical space, — from the borders of Russia on the north, throughout Chinese Tartary on the west, and in the east as far as Kamschatka; and downwards through Corea and Japan, in...
