Famous quotes containing the words seat and/or arthur:

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the
    scornful.
    But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he
    meditate day and night.
    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
    bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither;
    and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm I (l. I, 1–3)

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle
    and the mountains as pegs?
    And We created you in pairs,
    and We appointed your sleep for a rest;
    and We appointed night for a garment,
    and We appointed day for a livelihood.
    And We have built above you seven strong ones,
    and We appointed a blazing lamp
    and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading
    that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants,
    and gardens luxuriant.
    Qur’an, “The Tiding” 78:6-16, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
