Page 149 - Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.
Page 16 - Wisdom crieth without ; she uttereth her voice in the streets : She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates : In the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity ? And the scorners delight in their scorning, And fools hate knowledge...
Page 386 - For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh : — (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) — Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; — And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
Page 385 - Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Page 54 - I am fearfully and wonderfully made : marvellous are Thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well. My bones are not hid from Thee : though I be made secretly, and fashioned beneath in the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect : and in Thy book were all my members written : Which day by day were fashioned : when as yet there was none of them.
Page 89 - I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards: I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits: I made me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees...
Page 57 - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts ; even one thing befalleth them : as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath ; so that a man hath no pre-eminence above a beast : for all is vanity. All go unto one place ; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Page 280 - Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine ; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
Page 269 - I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. " Surely," shall one say, " in the Lord have I righteousness and strength :" even to him shall men come ; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
Page 391 - Though the waters thereof rage and swell : and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.
