Pàgina 190 - Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
Pàgina 190 - Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is : brethren, to dwell together in unity ! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down unto the beard : even unto Aaron's beard, and went down to the skirts of his clothing.

Pàgina 147 - Him whose kingdom is not of this world, and by every possible means to promote the immortal interests of men, let us not contend — we have one Master, even Christ — but give place to each other, that the word of the Lord may have free course, run, and be glorified.
Pàgina 82 - Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
Pàgina 187 - Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord ; looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God ; lest any root of bitterness springing up, trouble you, and thereby many be defiled ; lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
