Strana 187 - Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper ? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted ; neither turneth he back from the sword.
Strana 187 - Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? The glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength : He goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted, Neither turneth he back from the sword. • The quiver rattleth against him, The glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage; Neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet. He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; And he smelleth the battle...
Strana 306 - Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.
Strana 271 - Sirens' harmony, That sit upon the nine infolded spheres, And sing to those that hold the vital shears, And turn the adamantine spindle round, On which the fate of Gods and men is wound. Such sweet compulsion doth in music lie, To lull the daughters of Necessity, And keep unsteady Nature to her law, And the low world in measured motion draw After the heavenly tune, which none can hear Of human mould, with gross unpurged ear...
Strana 290 - The strong rebuff of some tumultuous cloud, Instinct with fire and nitre, hurried him As many miles aloft : that fury stayed, Quenched in a boggy Syrtis, neither sea, Nor good dry land : nigh foundered, on he fares Treading the crude consistence, half on foot, Half flying; behoves him now both oar and sail.
Strana 266 - High in the air the rock its summit shrouds In brooding tempests, and in rolling clouds ; Loud storms around, and mists eternal rise, Beat its bleak brow, and intercept the skies. When all the broad expansion, bright with day, Glows with the...
Strana 265 - Scylla, bathing in the sea that parts Calabria from the hoarse Trinacrian shore...
Strana 285 - Orontes, and the inspired Castalian spring, might with this Paradise Of Eden strive ; nor that Nyseian isle Girt with the river Triton, where old Cham, Whom Gentiles Ammon call and Libyan Jove, Hid Amalthea, and her florid son Young Bacchus, from his stepdame Rhea's eye ; Nor where Abassin kings their issue guard, Mount Amara, though this by some supposed True Paradise, under the Ethiop line By Nilus...
Strana 35 - E'en in the tower the careful warder slept. Subdued by rest, the mother ceased to mourn Her darling infants closed within their urn. The busy hum of crowded streets was still; And still the watchdog's larum loud and shrill. The queen of darkness trod her awful round, Her ears untroubled by a vagrant sound. Medea's couch refused the soft control, For love and Jason agonized her soul. The bulls that breathe intolerable fire, Forebodings mortal to her love inspire ; The plain of Mars in dismal prospect...
Strana 292 - tis a sea with shallows bank'd around, Or 'tis a broken land with waters drown'd : Here shores advanc'd o'er Neptune's rule we find, And there an inland ocean lags behind.
