Sivu 365 - No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls, for the price of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
Sivu 116 - Thy throne, O God, is for and ever and ever : the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness : therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Sivu 115 - For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
Sivu 359 - Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Sivu 313 - For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: let him eschew evil, and do good ; let him seek peace and ensue it.
Sivu 116 - By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
Sivu 366 - ... shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needle-work : the virgins that be her fellows shall bear her company, and shall be brought unto thee. With joy and gladness shall they be brought : and shall enter into the King's palace. Instead of thy fathers thou shalt have children : whom thou mayest make princes in all lands. I will remember thy name from one generation to another : therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, world without end.
Sivu 11 - The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. 2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?
Sivu 118 - I acknowledge ; but the foundation and root is obedience to the golden rule of " doing to others as you would be done by," and bearing the precept in mind in little things as well as in great ones.
Sivu 211 - He doth not forbid honest and moderate forecast and provision, as if it were not lawful for- Christians to deal in matters appertaining to the good estate of this life; for he hath said unto Timothy, 1 Tim. v. If there be any that provideth not for his own, and namely, for them of his household, he denieth the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
