Side 62 - Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number : he calleth them all by names, by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power, not one faileth.
Side 94 - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
