Page 41 - Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you ; and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended ; and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Page 84 - What portion have we in David ? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel : now see to thine own house, David.
