Page 72 - They spend their days in wealth, And in a moment go down to the grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; For we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? And what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
Page 27 - Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault with any of his creatures, or blame their conduct ? for who hath resisted his will, or rendered his purposes void ?
