82 ページ - And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand ; and all the women went out after her, with timbrels, and with dances. And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously : the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

189 ページ - It is for the interest of humanity in general, that the occasions of war, and the inducements to it, should be diminished.
