Strona 85 - Who hath woe ? who hath sorrow ? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause ? who hath redness of eyes ? They that tarry long at the wine ; they that go to seek mixed wine.
Strona 435 - Are all apostles ? are all prophets ? are all teachers ? are all workers of miracles ? have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret ? But covet earnestly the best gifts : and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Strona 120 - For all this is but like the helping a man over the stile, who is going to be hanged, which surely is no very great or difficult piece of civility. In the reign of queen Elizabeth, we read of one whom the grandees of the court procured to be made secretary of state, only to break his back in the business of the queen of Scots, whose death they were then projecting. Like true courtiers they first engage him in that fatal scene, and then desert him in it, using him only as a tool to do a present state...
Strona 53 - The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. 35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
Strona 458 - ... they called it, and to be irreligious, were almost terms convertible.

Strona 143 - Therefore, whofoever heareth thefe fayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wife man, which built his houfe upon a rock ; and the rain defcended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that houfe ; and it fell not : for it was founded upon a rock.
Strona 458 - In all their preachments they so highly pretended to the spirit, that they could hardly so much as spell the letter. To be blind was with them the proper qualification of a spiritual guide ; and to be book-learned, as they called it, and to be irreligious, were almost terms convertible. None were thought fit for the ministry but tradesmen and mechanics, because none else were allowed to have the spirit. Those only were accounted like St. Paul, who could work with their hands...
Strona 308 - ... a thing as God could not do, had it not seen it actually done. It is, as it were, to cancel the essential distances of things, to remove the bounds of nature, to bring heaven and earth, and, what is more, both ends of the contradiction together.
Strona 482 - ... tremble at his frowns, and lay their necks under his feet. Now from whence can all this be, but from a secret work of the divine power, investing sovereign princes with certain marks and rays of that Divine image, which overawes, and...
Strona 230 - He will not only pardon, but pardon abundantly: for his thoughts are not as our thoughts, nor his ways as our ways.
