Strona 90 - I came into the House one morning, well clad, and perceived a gentleman speaking, whom I knew not, very ordinarily apparelled ; for it was a plain cloth suit, which seemed to have been made by an ill country tailor ; his linen was plain, and not very clean; and I remember a speck or two of blood upon his little band, which was not much larger than his collar : his hat was without a hatband. His stature was of a good size ; his sword stuck close to his side ; his countenance swollen and reddish; his...
Strona 461 - Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him ; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth ; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Strona 187 - I can say this of Naseby: that when I saw the enemy draw up and march in gallant order towards us, and we a company of poor ignorant men, to seek how to order our battle (the General having commanded me to order all the Horse), I could not (riding alone about my business) but smile out to God in praises, in assurance of victory, because God would, by things that are not, bring to naught things that are. Of which I had great assurance. And God did it.
Strona 85 - Not that I speak in respect of want ; for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound : everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Strona 198 - All that believe, have the real unity, which is most glorious ; because inward, and spiritual, in the Body, and to the...
Strona 209 - Dear Heart, press on; let not Husband, let not anything cool thy affections after Christ. I hope he** will be an occasion to inflame them. That which is best worthy of love in thy Husband is that of the image of Christ he bears. Look on that, and love it best, and all the rest for that.
Strona 209 - Claypole is, I trust in mercy, exercised with some perplexed thoughts. She sees her own vanity and carnal mind : bewailing it : she seeks after (as I hope also) what will satisfy. And thus to be a seeker is to be of the best sect next to a finder ; and such an one shall every faithful humble seeker be at the end.
Strona 114 - are most of them old decayed serving-men and tapsters, and such kind of fellows ; and,' said I, 'their troops are gentlemen's sons, younger sons, and persons of quality : do you think that the spirits of such base and mean fellows will ever be able to encounter gentlemen, that have honor, and courage, and resolution in them...
Strona 500 - Lord, though I am a miserable and wretched creature, I am in Covenant with Thee through grace. And I may, I will, come to Thee, for Thy people. Thou hast made me, though very unworthy, a mean instrument to do them some good, and Thee service...
Strona 306 - As for the People, what thoughts they have in matters of Religion in their own breasts I cannot reach ; but shall think it my duty, if they walk honestly and peaceably, Not to cause them in the least to suffer for the same.
