Page 122 - Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day : lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein ; and when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied ; then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God...
Page 122 - Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that He might humble thee, and that He might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end ; and thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
Page 46 - And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
Page 13 - It is indeed, a fact worthy of remark, and one that seems never to have been noticed, that throughout the whole animal creation, in every country and clime of the earth, the most useful animals cost nature the least waste to sustain them with food.

The all-powerful elephant, and the patient, untiring camel in the torrid zone ; the horse, the ox, or the donkey in the temperate, and the rein-deer in the frigid zone ; obtain all their muscular power for enduring labour, from nature's simplest productions, the vegetable kingdom.

Page 29 - God gave an express law to his people in the wilderness about it ; saying, " thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him : the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night.
Page 13 - They seldom eat vegetable food until some other animal has eaten it first, and made it into flesh. Their only use seems to be to destroy life— their own flesh is unfit for other animals to eat, having been itself made out of flesh, and is most foul and offensive. Great strength, fleetness of foot, usefulness, cleanliness, and docility, are then always characteristic of vegetable-eating animals ; while all the world dreads flesh-eaters.
