Side 60 - Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee : be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee : cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.
Side 60 - Under a wise and beneficent government, the produce of the Holy Land would exceed all calculation. Its perennial harvest ; the salubrity of its air ; its limpid springs, its rivers, lakes, and matchless plains ; its hills and vales ; all these, added to the serenity of its climate, prove this land to be indeed ' a field which the Lord hath blessed.' God hath given it of the dew of heaven and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine.
Side 59 - There is nothing in the Holy Land finer than the view of Napolose, from the heights around it. As the traveller descends towards it from the hills, it appears luxuriantly embosomed in the most delightful and fragrant bowers ; half concealed by rich gardens, and by stately trees collected into groves, all around the bold and beautiful valley in which it stands.
Side 56 - Djezxar^ as explained by himself, it signified butcher ; but of this name, notwithstanding its avowed allusion to the slaughters committed by him, he was evidently vain. He was his own minister, chancellor, treasurer, and secretary ; often his own cook and gardener ; and not unfrequently both judge and executioner in the same instant.

Side 58 - Italy, comes nearest to it in point of picturesque beauty, although it is destitute of any thing similar to the islands, by which that majestic piece of water is adorned. It is inferior in magnitude, and, perhaps, in the height of its surrounding mountains, to the Lake Asphaltites...
Side 58 - Gennesareth is surrounded by objects well calculated to heighten the solemn impression made by such a picture ; and, independently of the local feelings likely to be excited in its contemplation, it affords one of the most striking prospects in the Holy Land. It is by comparison alone that any due conception of its appearance can be communicated to the minds of those who have not seen it.
Side 59 - As the traveller descends towards it from the hills, it appears luxuriantly embosomed in the most delightful and fragrant bowers ; half concealed by rich gardens, and by stately trees collected into groves, all around the bold and beautiful valley in which it stands. Trade seems to flourish among its inhabitants. Their principal employment is in making soap ; but the manufactures of the town supply a very widely extended neighbourhood, and they are carried to a great distance upon camels.
Side 55 - Djezzar's character. At that time, shut up in his fortress at Acre, he defied the whole power of Turkey, despised the vizier, and derided the menaces of the capudan pacha; although he always affected to venerate the title and the authority of the sultan. His mere name carried terror with it over all the Holy Land, the most lawless tribes of Arabs expressing their awe and obeisance, whensoever it was uttered.
Side 61 - LORD BYRON'S FAREWELL TO ENGLAND, with three other Poems, viz., ODE TO ST. HELENA, To MY DAUGHTER ON THE MORNING OF HER BIRTH, and To THE LILY OF FRANCE.
Side 59 - ... in the road to Jerusalem. It seems to be the metropolis of a very rich and extensive country, abounding with provisions, and all the necessary articles of life, in much greater profusion than the town of Acre. White bread was exposed for sale in the streets, of a quality superior to any that is to be found elsewhere throughout the Levant.
