Strana 31 - GOD having secretly predetermined not only the adverse and prosperous fortune of every person in this world, in the most minute particulars, but also his faith or infidelity, his obedience or disobedience, and consequently his everlasting happiness or misery after death ; which fate or predestination it is not possible, by any foresight or wisdom, to avoid.
Strana 16 - On the death of that emperor his testament was publicly read in the senate. He bequeathed, as a valuable legacy to his successors, the advice of confining the empire within those limits which nature seemed to have placed as its permanent bulwarks and boundaries...
Strana 28 - This argument is most powerfully addressed to a devout Arabian, whose mind is attuned to faith and rapture, whose ear is delighted by the music of sounds, and whose ignorance is incapable of comparing the productions of human genius.
Strana 220 - Transfusing into them their dunghill soul. How did they rivet, with gigantic piles, Thorough the centre their new-catched miles, And to the stake a struggling country bound, Where barking waves still bait the forced ground, Building their watery Babel far more high To reach the sea, than those to scale the sky.

Strana 31 - Let them therefore fight for the religion of God, who part with the present life in exchange for that which is to come ; for whosoever fighteth for the religion of God, whether he be slain, or be victorious, we will surely give him a great reward.
Strana 30 - ... your neighbour who is a stranger, and to your familiar companion, and the traveller, and the captives whom your right hands shall possess ; for GOD loveth not the proud or vain-glorious, who are covetous, and recommend covetousness unto men, and conceal that which GOD of his bounty hath given them...
Strana 4 - It was foretold, that to him should the gathering of the people be ; and that God would give him the Heathen for his inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for his possession, which was punctually fulfilled by the wonderful success of the gospel, and its universal propagation throughout the world.
