Side 98 - How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage. They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
Side 105 - Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
Side 119 - My son, fear thou the LORD and the king : and meddle not with them that are given to change...
Side 119 - Some therefore cried one thing, and some another : for the assembly was confused, and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.
Side 36 - Keep therefore and do them ; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely, this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Side 41 - Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.

Side 107 - The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. 20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
Side 120 - Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.
Side 121 - I shall not nibble at niceties, nor ingeminate prolixities, but with the sword of brevity, shall cut the gordian knot of obscurity, and so proceed to give you the genuine purport of this mellifluous and aromatical subject, calculated allenarly for the meridian of that microcosm man ; and this was their ordinary before an unlearned Congregation.
