Stran 456 - God, a night spent in arms, is of more avail than two months of fasting and prayer; whosoever falls in battle, his sins are forgiven; at the day of judgment his wounds shall be resplendent as vermilion, and odoriferous as musk; and the loss of his limbs shall be supplied by the wings of angels and cherubim.
Stran 30 - ... but ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves : for thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God...
Stran 185 - Walls up to the heart of the city, it swept and swelled, as each man to his neighbor passed on the news. On that night no man slept. There was mourning and sorrow for those that were lost, but the lamentation for the dead was merged in even deeper sorrow for...
Stran 135 - He then proposed that he should himself start at once for Sparta, and that they should give him colleagues who were not to go immediately, but were to wait until the wall reached the lowest height which could possibly be defended.

Stran 129 - Pallas has not been able to soften the lord of Olympus, Though she has often prayed him, and urged him with excellent counsel, Yet once more I address thee in words than adamant firmer. When the foe shall have taken whatever the limit of...
Stran 260 - And with one voice the Thirty Have their glad answer given: 'Go forth, go forth, Lars Porsena; Go forth, beloved of Heaven; Go, and return in glory To Clusium's royal dome, And hang round Nurscia's altars The golden shields of Rome.
Stran 345 - Jupiter the supremely good and great, to Juno, Minerva, and the other deities presiding over the Capitol and citadel, and will give them thanks for having, on this day, and at many other times, endowed me both with the will and ability to perform extraordinary services to the commonwealth. Such of you also, Romans...
