Seite 191 - tis not to come ; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come : the readiness is all '37: Since no man, of aught he leaves, knows, what i»'t to leave betimes ? Let be.
Seite 169 - Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.
