Page xii - But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction : for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
Page ii - Give me the priest these graces shall possess, Of an ambassador the just address: A father's tenderness, a shepherd's care, A leader's courage, which the cross can bear, A ruler's awe, a watchman's wakeful eye, A pilot's skill, the helm in storms to ply, A fisher's patience, and a labourer's toil, A guide's dexterity to disembroil, A prophet's inspiration from above, A teacher's knowledge, and a Saviour's love.
Page 176 - A glance at any tolerably complete apparatus criticus of the Acts or Pauline Epistles reveals the striking fact that an overwhelming proportion of the variants common to the great mass of cursive and late uncial Greek MSS are identical with the readings followed by Chrysostom (ob. 407) in the composition of his Homilies.

Page xxi - Country Parson being to administer the sacraments, is at a stand with himself, how or what behaviour to assume for so holy things. Especially at communion times he is in a great confusion, as being not only to receive God, but to break and administer him.
Page 176 - The fundamental text of late extant Greek MSS generally is beyond all question identical with the dominant Antiochian or Graeco-Syrian text of the second half of the fourth century.
Page xxi - Tis done ; the Lord sets to His seal, The prayer is heard, the grace is given, With joy unspeakable we feel The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven ; The altar streams with sacred blood, And all the temple flames with God ! HYMN XC.
