Page 215 - Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.

Page 281 - What a singular destiny has been that of this remarkable man! To be regarded in his own age as a classic, and in ours as a companion.
