Σελίδα 468 - And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
Σελίδα 445 - And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
Σελίδα 308 - How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, By all their country's wishes blest ! When Spring, with dewy fingers cold, Returns to deck their hallowed mould, She there shall dress a sweeter sod Than Fancy's feet have ever trod. By fairy hands their knell is rung ; By forms unseen their dirge is sung : There Honour comes, a pilgrim gray, To bless the turf that wraps their clay ; And Freedom shall awhile repair, To dwell a weeping hermit there ! TO MERCY.
Σελίδα 460 - For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
Σελίδα 29 - When we go out into the fields in the evening of the year, a different voice approaches us. We regard, even in spite of ourselves, the still but steady advances of time. A few days ago, and the summer of the year was grateful, and every element was filled with life, and the sun of Heaven seemed to glory in his ascendant. He is now enfeebled in his power ; the desert no more
Σελίδα 30 - Nature ; harmonizing with the calm solitude of that illustrious region, which once was the scene of the most agitated passions, enables us, by the past, to determine of the future. In those moments, indeed, we may be said to live for ages ; a single instant, by the multitude of impressions it conveys, seems to anticipate for us a sense of that eternity ' when time shall be no more ;' when the fitful dream of human existence, with all its turbulent illusions, shall be dispelled ; and the last sun...
Σελίδα xxxiv - There the girl, like Thetis, treading on a soft carpet, has her white and delicate feet naked, the nails tinged with red. Her trowsers, which in winter are of red cloth, and in summer of fine calico, or thin gauze, descend from the hip to the ancle, hanging...
Σελίδα 139 - Then the master of the house takes his seat, his wife sitting by his side, at the circular tray ; and stripping his arms quite bare, by turning back the sleeves of his tunic towards his shoulders, he serves out the soup and the meat. Only one dish is placed upon the table at the same time. If it contain butcher's meat or poultry, he tears it into pieces with his fingers. During meals, the meat is always torn with the fingers. Knives and spoons are little used, and they are never changed. When meat...
Σελίδα 79 - Oyygian plain — overwhelming the mind with every recollection that has been made powerful by genius and consecrated by inspiration — where every zephyr breathing from HELICON and PARNASSUS, over the mouldering...
Σελίδα 122 - Helicon, the solitudes of which are in the highest degree beautiful : every declivity of the mountain is covered with luxuriant shrubs, or tenanted by browsing flocks ; while the pipe of the shepherd, mingling its sound with that of the bells upon the goats and the sheep, is heard at intervals among the rocks. Dr. Clarke conceived that he could here ascertain the fountains of Aganippe and Helicon, and the Grove of the Muses. Beyond Helicon lie the plain and city of Livadia, the latter of which has...
