Strana 320 - I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Strana 195 - That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, And shall perform all my pleasure : Even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shall be built ; And to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
Strana 319 - Certificates of discharge, however, granted under such a law, cannot be pleaded in bar of an action brought by a citizen of another State in the courts of the United States, or of any other State than that where the discharge was obtained...
Strana 87 - If your majesty have a game to play, you must give us also the liberty to play ours.
Strana 114 - Walking by the sea-side, in a calm evening, upon a sandy shore, and with an ebbing tide, I have frequently remarked the appearance of a dark cloud, or, rather, very thick mist, hanging over the edge of the water, to the height, perhaps, of half a yard, and of the breadth of two or three yards, stretching along the coast as far as the eye could reach, and always retiring with the water.

Strana 280 - Take counsel, execute judgment; Make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday ; Hide the outcasts ; bewray not him that wandereth.

Strana 366 - That all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot by any compact deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.
Strana 401 - I took it: — and in an hour, oh! heavens! what a revulsion! what an upheaving, from its lowest depths, of the inner spirit! what an apocalypse of the world within me! That my pains had vanished was now a trifle in my eyes: — this negative effect was swallowed up in the immensity of those positive effects which had opened before me — in the abyss of divine enjoyment thus suddenly revealed.
Strana 15 - General courts-martial may consist of any number of officers from five to thirteen, inclusive; but they shall not consist of less than thirteen when that number can be convened without manifest injury to the service.
Strana 63 - Crease must be in a line with the stumps; six feet eight inches in length; the Stumps in the centre, with a return crease at each end towards the Bowler, at right angles.
