Page 18 - The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
Page 9 - But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin.

Page 103 - And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, "If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.
