Page 142 - And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Page 42 - This England never did, (nor never shall,) Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror, But when it first did help to wound itself. Now these her princes are come home again, Come the three corners of the world in arms, And we shall shock them : Nought shall make us rue, If England to itself do rest but true.
Page 233 - Heaven, with all his host Of rebel angels, by whose aid, aspiring To set himself in glory...
Page 308 - And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; and he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee : and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
