الصفحة 235 - And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation. I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.
الصفحة 243 - Isaac; the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed. And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south; and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
الصفحة 128 - Tis fill'd with precious spikenard, queen of scents. [She spills it on his head. JOSEPH Madam, what must I say ?

Whene'er the king doth give a golden mark, The addition...
الصفحة 136 - That honours lords above a lady's love. Thou hast no lord but me, — I am thy lord : And thou shalt find it, too— fool that I was To stoop my stateliness to such a calf Because he bore about a panther's hide. That is not blood which fainteth in thy veins, But only infant milk. Thou minion !
