Page 59 - But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in his presence.

Page 19 - And ought not this woman being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo these eighteen years; be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?
Page 3 - Wherefore that here we may briefly end : of Law there can be no less acknowledged than that her seat is the bosom of God, her voice the harmony of the world; all things in heaven and earth do her homage, the very least 175 as feeling her care, and the greatest as not exempted from her power...
