Page 111 - As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
Page 192 - He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God, hath made him a liar ; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
Page 208 - No society in which these liberties are not, on the whole, respected, is free, whatever may be its form of government ; and none is completely free in which they do not exist absolute and unqualified.
