Pàgina 42 - Because I have called and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded ; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity: I will mock when your fear cometh ; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

Pàgina 351 - From thee is all that soothes the life of man, His high endeavour, and his glad success, His strength to suffer, and his will to serve.

Pàgina 31 - ... of doing well we utterly renounce. We see how far we are from the perfect righteousness of the Law ; the little fruit which we have in holiness, it is, God knoweth, corrupt and unsound : we put no confidence at all in it, we challenge nothing in the world for it, we dare not call God to reckoning, as if we had him in our debtbooks : our continual suit to him is, and must be, to bear with our infirmities, and pardon our offences.
Pàgina 329 - He that abideth in me, and I in him, the fame bringeth forth much fruit : for without me ye can do nothing.
