Side 16 - Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?
Side 93 - Because I have called, and ye refused ; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded ; but ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof. I also will laugh at your calamity ; I will mock when your fear cometh.
Side 48 - And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore; for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Side 11 - I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not : if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Side 99 - While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
Side 90 - What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good ? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good, seek peace, and pursue it.
Side 50 - For we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.
Side 64 - For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men : as free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Side 72 - Still has my life new wonders seen Repeated every year; Behold my days that yet remain, I trust them to thy care.
Side 45 - I had literally to forsake, (in point of sentiment,) all my earthly friends, all my expectations of honour, and I may also say. of wealth. When I was settled in the ministry, it was without any stipulated salary whatever ; and during the seven years which I spent with the church where I was first settled, the whole of my salary would not average forty dollars a year! Hence I may say with the apostle, ' These hands have min»istered to my necessities and those that were with me.
