Seite 396 - He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away ; the branches thereof are made white.
Seite 418 - The catechism says that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever, which of course is applicable mainly to God as seen in his works.
Seite 177 - Et jam summa procul villarum culmina fumant, Majoresque cadunt altis de montibus umbrae.
