Strona 57 - Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception, in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children ; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Strona 157 - Lightly they'll talk of the spirit that's gone and o'er his cold ashes upbraid him, — but nothing he'll reck, if they let him sleep on in the grave where a Briton has laid him.

Strona 64 - The ram which thou sawest having two horns, are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia : and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.
Strona 65 - Know, therefore, and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem, unto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks ; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself...
