Seite 280 - In septem psalmos poenitentiales hebraicos interpretatio de verbo ad verbum et super eisdem commentarioli sui, ad discendum linguam hebraicam ex rudimentis
Seite 219 - For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell ; and, having made peace by the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth or things in heaven.
