Stran 126 - If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of Hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings : yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.

Stran 54 - THE PARSON'S CHURCH. THE country Parson hath a special care of his church, that all things there be decent, and befitting His name, by which it is called.
