This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...authority obliges us to substitute Toutois for carrots. 6. ipxtrai This may refer either to the present and continuous dispensation, or to the future and final judgment The present tpxo6at is frequently used to denote the certainty of a future event, e.g. Matt xvii. 11, Joh. iv. 21, xiv. 3, whence 0 ip6p, tvos is a designation of the Messiah: see Winer xL p. 332. 7. iv ols K.tx.'
