Side 99 - Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.
Side 48 - Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind ; neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

Side 136 - They reason against reason, use reason against the use of reason, and show, from very good reason, that reason is good for nothing. When they think it on their own side, then they apply all its aids to convince or confound those who dare to think without their concurrence : therefore, in their controversies about religion, they frequently appeal to reason ; but we must not accept the appeal, for if our reason be not their reason, it is no reason.
Side 96 - ... commonly called ecclesiastical jurisdiction: nevertheless the Bishop of Rome and his adherents, minding utterly as much as in him lay to abolish, obscure, and delete such power given by God to the princes of the earth, whereby they might gather and get to themselves the government and rule of the world, have in their councils and synods provincial made divers ordinances and constitutions that no lay or married man should...
Side 59 - ... to make it impenetrable. Scripture was not given to make work for interpreters; nor to teach men how to doubt, but how to live.
