Seite 332 - Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
Seite 217 - There — in the west ! and now, alas, 'tis gone ! — 'Twas all a dream ! we gaze and gaze in vain ! But mark and speak not, there it comes again ! It moves ! — what form unseen, what being there With torch-like lustre fires the murky air ? His instincts, passions, say, how like our own ! Oh, when will day reveal a world unknown...
Seite 217 - Half-circling hills, whose everlasting woods Sweep with their sable skirts the shadowy floods: And say, when all, to holy transport given, Embraced and wept as at the gates of Heaven, When one and all of us, repentant, ran, And, on our faces, blessed the wondrous Man; Say, was I then deceived, or from the skies Burst on my ear seraphic harmonies ?
Seite 332 - Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates ; all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea towards the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.
Seite 265 - ... and these in such infinite shoales and multitudes of fishes are offered to the takers, as may justly move admiration, not only to strangers, but to those that daily bee employed amongst them.
Seite 145 - Donne), like hairs in horse-tails, concur in one root of beauty and strength ; but being plucked out, one by one, serve only for springes and snares.
Seite 34 - For six such days God was making the heaven and the earth, the sea, and all that therein is ; and rested on the seventh day.
Seite 198 - Under a wise and beneficial 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 (Gen. xxvii. 27.) : God hath girtn it of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine.
Seite 327 - ... to procure his opinion on any author or on any passage of an author, or to elicit any conversation of any kind to compensate for the time and attendance of his company. And as for Homer, Virgil, and Horace, I never could hear of the least critical effort on them in his life. He is, in general, devoid of all human affections ; but such as he has, are of a misanthropic quality: nor do I think that any man exists, for whom his propensities rise to the lowest pitch of affection and esteem.
