Page 241 - He paweth in the valley and rejoiceth in his strength: He goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; Neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: Neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.

Page 406 - Verum, ubi correptum manibus vinclisque tenebis, 405 Turn variae eludent species atque ora ferarum. Fiet enim subito sus horridus, atraque tigris, Squamosusque draco, et fulva cervice leaena, Aut acrem flammae sonitum dabit, atque ita vinclis Excidet, aut in aquas tenues dilapsus abibit. 410 Sed, quanto ille magis formas se vertet in omnes, Tanto, nate, magis contende tenacia vincla, Donee talis erit mutato corpore, qualem Videris, incepto tegeret cum lumina somno.
