Seite 222 - And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh : and I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell : but thou shalt go unto my country and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
Seite 220 - summe deum, sancti custos Soractis Apollo, quem primi colimus, cui pineus ardor acervo pascitur, et medium freti pietate per ignem cultores multa premimus vestigia pruna, da, pater, hoc nostris aboleri dedecus armis, omnipotens. non exuvias, pulsaeve tropaeum 790 virginis, aut spolia ulla peto ; mihi cetera laudem facta ferent ; haec dira meo dum vulnere pestis pulsa cadat, patrias remeabo inglorius urbes.

Seite 224 - The supposition of its efficiency is absurd in principle. It ascribes to man a power over his maker: it places the Almighty in the station of a sheriff's officer ; it places him under the command of every justice of the peace. It supposes him to stand engaged, no matter how, but absolutely engaged, to inflict — on every individual, by whom the ceremony, after having been performed, has been profaned, — a punishment (no matter what) which, but for the ceremony...
Seite 225 - ... inconsiderable influence. What is certain, as being rendered so by the above experience (not to mention so many others as might be adduced) is, that, in the application thus supposed to be made of it, the religious principle has no influence. Under the ceremony of an oath are included, it is to be observed, two very different ties; the moral, and the religious. The one is capable of being made more or less binding upon all men : the other upon such only as are of a particular way of thinking....
Seite v - Verum tarnen hoc dico de toto genere Graecorum: tribuo illis litteras, do multarum artium disciplinam, non adimo sermonis leporem, ingeniorum acumen, dicendi copiam, denique etiam, si qua sibi alia sumunt, non repugno; testimoniorum religionem et fidem numquam ista natio coluit, totiusque huiusce rei quae sit vis, quae auctoritas, quod pondus, ignorant.

Seite 226 - ... that this, together with so many other articles in the list of supernatural securities, or substitutes for testimonial veracity, took their rise. Ordeals, in all their forms : trials by battle : trials without evidence (understand human evidence:) trials by supernatural, to the exclusion of human, evidence : trials by evidence secured against mendacity by supernatural means — by the ceremony of an oath. As the powers of the human understanding gain strength, invigorated by nourishment and exercise,...

Seite 226 - In all in which the force of public opinion runs counter, or does but withhold its aid : in the case of jurymen's oaths, in a variety of instances: in the case of a variety of other offices: in the case of university oaths: in the case of custom-house oaths: in the case of subscriptions, — which, considering the solemnity of the act, and the awfulness of the subject, may be placed on the same line with oaths.
