˹ 148 - Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
˹ 156 - Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul ? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him ? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?
˹ 117 - All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage: If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
˹ 147 - That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
˹ 155 - Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens and stretched them out ; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein...
˹ 161 - The light of the body is the eye : if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness.
˹ 150 - But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory...
˹ 145 - FORASMUCH as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us...
˹ 163 - I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons which need no repentance.
˹ 174 - Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents : but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
