Seite 142 - In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face ; the hair of my flesh stood up.
Seite 93 - There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
