Stran 154 - Bay always go to the edge of the water before embarking, to listen if they can hear " the bells upon the wind;" and if those warning notes are heard, nothing will induce them to leave the shore ; if all is quiet, they fearlessly set sail.
Stran 189 - Howbeit, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all long-suffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
