Σελίδα 414 - But he that is an hireling, and not the Shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth; and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

Σελίδα 294 - Then o'er the running stream or standing lake, A passage for thy weary people make ; With osier floats the standing water strow ; Of massy stones make bridges, if it flow ; That basking in the sun thy bees may lie, And, resting there, their flaggy pinions dry, When, late returning home, the laden host By raging winds is wreck'd upon the coast.
Σελίδα 67 - ... hanging loosely about her limbs ; the lower portion embroidered with flowers, and appearing beneath the shift, which has the sleeves wide and open, and the seams and edges curiously adorned with needle-work.
