But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your
children, and will not keep my read more

But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your
children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which
I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship
them:
Then I will cut off Israel out of the land which I have given
them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I
cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword
among all people:
And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it
shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath
the Lord done thus unto this land, and to this house?

Moves him read more

As the sweet voice of a bird,
Heard by the lander in a lonely isle,
Moves him to think what kind of bird it is,
That sings so delicately clear, and make
Conjecture of the plumage and the form.

Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise,
(That last infirmity of noble mind)
To read more

Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise,
(That last infirmity of noble mind)
To scorn delights, and live laborious days;
But the fair guerdon when we hope to find,
And think to burst out into sudden blaze,
Comes the blind Fury with th' abhorred shears,
And slits the thin-spun life.
