Page 440 - There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.
Page 267 - If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us : 3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us : 4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: 5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
