第 176 頁 - So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Beth-peor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

第 200 頁 - ... to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles ; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom ; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus : whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
第 55 頁 - A maiden knight — to me is given Such hope, I know not fear ; I yearn to breathe the airs of heaven That often meet me here.
第 50 頁 - Neither must we think that the life of a man begins when he can feed himself, or walk alone, when he can fight, or beget his like; for so he is contemporary with a camel or a cow ; but he is first a man when he comes to a certain, steady use of reason, according to his proportion : and when that is, all the world of men cannot tell precisely.
