Pagina 3 - ... superstition ; for, on the summit of a hillock, so regular as to seem artificial, there still remained part of a circle of rough unhewn stones of large dimensions. Seven stood upright; the rest had been dislodged from their places, probably by the zeal of some convert to Christianity, and lay, some prostrate near their former site, and others on the side of the hill.
Pagina 204 - Rebecca again looked forth, and almost immediately exclaimed, "Holy prophets of the law !
