'Yes,' he told them, 'he saw.'
‘For my sake?’
“No,” I said, “not quite. We were forcibly detained at Visichich Manor last night—”
8:1 [hgb] 论 到 祭 偶 像 之 物 ， 我 们 晓 得 我 们 都 有 知 识 。 但 知 识 是 叫 人 自 高 自 大 ， 惟 有 爱 心 能 造 就 人 。 [kjv] Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. [bbe] Now about things offered to images: we all seem to ourselves to have knowledge. Knowledge gives pride, but love gives true strength. 8:2 [hgb] 若 有 人 以 为 自 己 知 道 什 么 ， 按 他 所 当 知 道 的 ， 他 仍 是 不 知 道 。 [kjv] And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. [bbe] If anyone seems to himself to have knowledge, so far he has not the right sort of knowledge about anything; 8:3 [hgb] 若 有 人 爱 神 ， 这 人 乃 是 神 所 知 道 的 。 [kjv] But if any man love God, the same is known of him. [bbe] But if anyone has love for God, God has knowledge of him. 8:4 [hgb] 论 到 吃 祭 偶 像 之 物 ， 我 们 知 道 偶 像 在 世 上 算 不 得 什 么 。 也 知 道 神 只 有 一 位 ， 再 没 有 别 的 神 。 [kjv] As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. [bbe] So, then, as to the question of taking food offered to images, we are certain that an image is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but one. 8:5 [hgb] 虽 有 称 为 神 的 ， 或 在 天 ， 或 在 地 。 就 如 那 许 多 的 神 ， 许 多 的 主 。 [kjv] For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) [bbe] For though there are those who have the name of gods, in heaven or on earth, as there are a number of gods and a number of lords, 8:6 [hgb] 然 而 我 们 只 有 一 位 神 ， 就 是 父 ， 万 物 都 本 于 他 ， 我 们 也 归 于 他 。 并 有 一 位 主 ， 就 是 耶 稣 基 督 ， 万 物 都 是 借 着 他 有 的 ， 我 们 也 是 借 着 他 有 的 。 [kjv] But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. [bbe] There is for us only one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we are for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we have our being through him. 8:7 [hgb] 但 人 不 都 有 这 等 知 识 。 有 人 到 如 今 因 拜 惯 了 偶 像 ， 就 以 为 所 吃 的 是 祭 偶 像 之 物 。 他 们 的 良 心 既 然 软 弱 ， 也 就 污 秽 了 。 [kjv] Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. [bbe] Still, all men have not that knowledge: but some, being used till now to the image, are conscious that they are taking food which has been offered to the image; and because they are not strong in the faith, their minds are troubled. 8:8 [hgb] 其 实 食 物 不 能 叫 神 看 中 我 们 。 因 为 我 们 不 吃 也 无 损 ， 吃 也 无 益 。 [kjv] But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse. [bbe] But God's approval of us is not based on the food we take: if we do not take it we are no worse for it; and if we take it we are no better. 8:9 [hgb] 只 是 你 们 要 谨 慎 ， 恐 怕 你 们 这 自 由 ， 竟 成 了 那 软 弱 人 的 绊 脚 石 。 [kjv] But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. [bbe] But take care that this power of yours does not give cause for trouble to the feeble. 8:10 [hgb] 若 有 人 见 你 这 有 知 识 的 ， 在 偶 像 的 庙 里 坐 席 ， 这 人 的 良 心 若 是 软 弱 ， 岂 不 放 胆 去 吃 那 祭 偶 像 之 物 吗 ？ [kjv] For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; [bbe] For if a man sees you, who have knowledge, taking food as a guest in the house of an image, will it not give him, if he is feeble, the idea that he may take food offered to images? 8:11 [hgb] 因 此 ， 基 督 为 他 死 的 那 软 弱 弟 兄 ， 也 就 因 你 的 知 识 沉 沦 了 。 [kjv] And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? [bbe] And so, through your knowledge, you are the cause of destruction to your brother, for whom Christ underwent death. 8:12 [hgb] 你 们 这 样 得 罪 弟 兄 们 ， 伤 了 他 们 软 弱 的 良 心 ， 就 是 得 罪 基 督 。 [kjv] But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. [bbe] And in this way, doing evil to the brothers, and causing trouble to those whose faith is feeble, you are sinning against Christ. 8:13 [hgb] 所 以 食 物 若 叫 我 弟 兄 跌 倒 ， 我 就 永 远 不 吃 肉 ， 免 得 叫 我 弟 兄 跌 倒 了 。 [kjv] Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend. [bbe] For this reason, if food is a cause of trouble to my brother, I will give up taking meat for ever, so that I may not be a cause of trouble to my brother.
"That doesn't make it impossible. I know of fourteen distinct cases of men who committed crimes and were able to lock themselves in their rooms, leaving the key outside. There was a case of Henry Burton, coiner; there was William Francis Rector, who killed a warder while in prison and locked the cell upon himself from the inside. There was--But there; why should I bother you with instances? That kind of trick is common enough. No," he said, "it is the motive that we have to find. Do you still want me to go with you to-morrow, Miss Nuttall?" he asked.
They were a four and a five, an undefeatable natural nine.
“He thinks they come from enemies, and he has heard something. One wretched man may do so much when every thing is dried to tinder. I do so wish it would rain.”
“Did Frank go on again after the half-day’s rest?” she asked.
The emancipationists of Missouri were working hard to free their State from slavery, and they would have been only too glad to have Mr. Lincoln do the work for them. They appealed to him to extend his edict to their State, but got no satisfaction. The emancipationists of Maryland had much the same experience. Both Missouri and Maryland were left out of the proclamation, as were Tennessee and Kentucky and Delaware, and parts of Virginia and Louisiana and the Carolinas. (See Appendix.) The explanation is that the proclamation was not intended to cover all slaveholding territory. All of it that belonged to States that had not been in rebellion, or had been subdued, was excluded. The President's idea was to reach only such sections as were then in revolt. If the proclamation had been immediately operative, and had liberated every bondman in the jurisdiction to which it applied, it would have left over a million slaves in actual thraldom. Indeed, Earl Russell, the British premier, was quite correct when, in speaking of the proclamation, he said: "It does not more than profess to emancipate slaves where the United States authorities cannot make emancipation a reality, and emancipates no one where the decree can be carried into effect."
Is never with impunity defied.
I heard more bad language in that thirty-five minutes than I ever listened to in a month, even in a police-court. I must have received considerable mental and moral damage, and I really think that I ought to receive some compensation from Lady ——.
Sanders did not come the next day, nor the next. He was moving leisurely, traversing a country where many misunderstandings existed that wanted clearing up. When he arrived, having sent a messenger ahead to carry the news of his arrival, he found the city peaceably engaged.
"Whoa!" cried McGlory. "You're shy a few, Burton. Here's where we stop."
Stephen stood absolutely still in front of the opening in the trees, and as Rose turned she met him face to face. She had never dreamed his eyes could be so stern, his mouth so hard, and she gave a sob like a child.
He put down his glass, and walked towards the staircase door. Again I remarked his lameness and the soft padding sound of his footfall, and standing up in my place, I saw his feet as he went out. He had nothing on them but a pair of tattered blood-stained socks. Then the door closed upon him. I had half a mind to follow, till I remembered how he detested any fuss about himself. For a minute, perhaps, my mind was wool-gathering. Then, 'Remarkable Behaviour of an Eminent Scientist,' I heard the Editor say, thinking (after his wont) in headlines. And this brought my attention back to the bright dinner-table.
“Lad, lad, what is friendship in comparison with love of a girl—real love of a girl? You’ll sing another tune some day.”
