Strana 49 - Raca, shall be in danger of the council : but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore, if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way, first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Strana 30 - The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, — the most unremitting despotism on the one part and degrading submissions on the other.
Strana 17 - Any person who shall maliciously dismember, or deprive a slave of life shall suffer such punishment as would be inflicted in case the like offence had been committed on a free white person, and on the like proof, except in case of insurrection of such slave.
Strana 129 - Every citizen may freely speak, write, and publish his sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty.
