Page 76 - She openeth her mouth with wisdom ; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Page 331 - This day is holy unto the LORD your God ; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.
