Page 15 - And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth ; and the mule that was under him went away.
Page 32 - And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness ; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.
Page 194 - Where Autumn basks, with fruit empurpled deep, My pleasing theme continual prompts my thought: Presents the downy peach ; the shining plum: The ruddy, fragrant nectarine; and dark, Beneath his ample leaf, the luscious fig.

Page 264 - The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them ; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us. But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees? And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us.
Page 42 - Let every tree in every garden own The Redstreak as supreme ; whose pulpous fruit With gold irradiate, and vermilion, shines Tempting, not fatal, as the birth of that Primeval interdicted plant, that won Fond Eve in hapless hour to taste, and die.

Page 359 - And learn what habitants possess'd the place. They went and found a hospitable race; Not prone to ill, nor strange to foreign guest, They eat, they drink, and nature gives the feast; The trees around them, all their fruit produce; Lotos, the name; divine nectareous juice!
Page 269 - Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. 4 And if thou bring an oblation of a meat offering baken in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.
Page 314 - And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue. 32 And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.
