Страница 218 - Honest men served you faithfully in this action. Sir, they are trusty. I beseech you in the name of God not to discourage them.

Страница 319 - Oppress'd with numbers in th' unequal field, His men discourag'd, and himself expell'd, Let him for succour sue from place to place, Torn from his subjects, and his son's embrace.

Страница 140 - Ireland, in doctrine, worship, discipline and government, according to the Word of God, and the example of the best reformed Churches ; and we shall endeavour to bring the Churches of God in the three kingdoms to the nearest conjunction and uniformity in religion, confession of faith, form of Church government, directory for worship and catechising, that we, and our posterity after us, may, as brethren, live in faith and love, and the Lord may delight to dwell in the midst of us.
Страница 43 - You know what my manner of life hath been. Oh, I lived in and loved darkness, and hated light; I was a chief, the chief of sinners. This is true : I hated godliness, yet God had mercy on me.
Страница 110 - And thus being well armed within by the satisfaction of their own consciences, and without, by good iron arms, they would as one man stand firmly and charge desperately.
Страница 59 - ST. IVES, 11th January, 1635. " MR. STORIE, — Amongst the catalogue of those good works which your fellow-citizens and our countrymen have done, this will not be reckoned for the least, That they have provided for the feeding of souls.
Страница 70 - Pray, Mr Hampden, who is that man, for I see he is on our side by his speaking so warmly to-day?" — " That sloven," said Mr Hampden,prophetically, " whom you see before you, hath no ornament in his speech; that sloven, I say, if we should ever come to a breach with the King, which God forbid ! in such a case, I say, that sloven will be the greatest man in England.
