Seite 205 - The Lord hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
Seite 10 - And the king said unto Zadok, Carry back the ark of God into the city: if I shall find favour in the eyes of the LORD, he will bring me again, and shew me both it and his habitation: but if he thus say, I have no delight in thee; behold, here am I, let him do to me as seemeth good unto him.
Seite 7 - Their manner of life is extremely wretched and disgusting. They delight to besmear their bodies with the fat of animals, mingled with ochre, and sometimes with grime. They are utter strangers to cleanliness, as they never wash their bodies, but suffer the dirt to accumulate, so that it will hang a considerable length from their elbows. Their huts are formed by digging a hole...
Seite 120 - Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: 2.
Seite 56 - In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness. . . .

Seite 8 - Boschemen frequently forsake their aged relations, when removing from place to place for the sake of hunting.

Seite 148 - It was an easy matter to convince the brave and philanthropic Governor Janssens of the futility of the objection, and to show that our undertaking was entirely separated from all national views and concerns; and that your direction, being entirely restricted to spiritual purposes, did not even in the least degree, affect, much less relax the authority which government has a right to exercise over all its subjects, any more than the filial obedience due to a father, or tutor, infringes the rights...
Seite 174 - The poor natives remain as before; no success has attended our labours, so as to terminate in the conversion of any ; and there is no apparent desire after instruction in the blessed truths of the gospel : the news of salvation is an idle tale to them ; and though they are visited as a nation with sore afflictions, they still reject and despise our message.
Seite 8 - They are total strangers to domestic happiness. The men have several wives, but conjugal affection is little known. They take no great care of their children, and never correct them except in a fit of rage, when they almost kill them by severe usage.
