Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...of plenty, when we sat by the flesh-pots, and did eat bread to the full: for now we shall die, we and our wives, and our little ones. So they went unto the Tetrarch, and said; Give us bread, for why should we die in thy presence? give us bread at an omer the shekel, or we shall all die. 28 And the Tetrarch was extremely sorrowful, and he lifted up his voice and wept; and reasoned with them, saying, "Why do you thus unlawfully assemble together? or, Vhy so trouble the city? Is not this the Lord's doing? why will you tempt the Lord?" (for the Tetrarch wist not that it was the sons of Belial had caused the famine.) And the people cried yet more and said, Give us bread.--Then the Tetrarch spake unto them, saying, "I will call an assembly of the elders of the city, and the chief men, and the priests, and the scribes and the pharisees, and we will hold counsel together, and see what may be done in this thing." 29 So the Tetrarch called an assembly of the chief men of the city, and told unto them the complaints of the people; and did say unto them, That unless the people might have bread, they would all die; they and their wives and their little ones. But the children of Belial, and the pharisees replied, they were grieved for the sufferings of the people; but the growers of wheat, of barley, and of oats, would not sell them more than an omer of wheat for two shekels; and as they bought, so did they sell unto the people. And the Tetrarch, and the priests, and the judges, and many of the chiefs of the city (who had not sold themselves to work iniquity) reasoned with the sons of Belial, and their confederates the Pharisees: but it availed not. 30 And the sons of Belial went on their way notwithstanding all that was said more
