Stranica 81 - Scriblerus was to have ridiculed all the false tastes in learning, under the character of a man of capacity enough ; that had dipped into every art and science, but injudiciously in each.
Stranica 168 - That God, from all eternity, determined to bestow salvation on those whom he foresaw would persevere unto the end in their faith in Christ Jesus; and to inflict everlasting punishments on those who should continue in their unbelief, and resist, unto the end, his divine succours.
