Page 72 - I will go in the strength of the Lord God : I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
Page 17 - And the seventh angel sounded ; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ ; and he shall reign for ever and ever...
