˹ 105 - Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue; " though he spare it, and forsake it not, but keep it still within his mouth; " yet his meat in his bowels is turned; it is the gall of asps within him.
˹ 139 - For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
˹ 63 - The king therefore only hath absolutum et directum dominium; but all subjects' lands are in the nature of feodum or fee, whether derived to them by descent from their ancestors or purchased for a valuable consideration; for they cannot come to any man by either of those ways, unless accompanied with those feudal clogs which were laid upon the first feudatory when it was originally granted.
˹ 118 - The law not only regards life and member, and protects every man in the enjoyment of them, but also furnishes him with every thing necessary for their support. For there is no man so indigent or wretched, but he may demand a supply sufficient for all the necessities of life from the more opulent part of the community, by means of the several statutes enacted for the relief of the poor, of which in their proper places.
˹ 122 - As justice gives every man a title to the product of his honest industry and the fair acquisitions of his ancestors descended to him, so charity gives every man a title to so much out of another's plenty as will keep him from extreme want where he has no means to subsist otherwise.
˹ 106 - Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work, rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.
˹ 106 - They are wet with the showers of the mountains, And embrace the rock for want of a shelter. They pluck the fatherless from the breast, And take a pledge of the poor.
˹ 105 - He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night. 9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
˹ 95 - For immediately upon their birth they are under the king's protection ; at a time too, when (during their infancy) they are incapable of protecting themselves.
˹ 45 - ... bodily labour, bestowed upon any subject which before lay in common to all men, is universally allowed to give the fairest and most reasonable title to an exclusive property therein.
