Famous quotes containing the word delivered:

    ...I delivered the poor who cried, and the orphan who had no helper. The blessing of the wretched came upon me, and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. I put on righteousness, and it clothed me; my justice was like a robe and a turban. I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy, and I championed the cause of the stranger. I broke the fangs of the unrighteous, and made them drop their prey from their teeth.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 29:12-17.

    Job, recounting his faithfulness.

    [I] delivered the Introduction of it to Baldwin, that I might say my book was at if not in the press on New Year’s Day.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    There was a heavy power in her eyes which laid hold of his whole being, as if he had drunk some powerful drug. He had been feeling weak and done before. Now the life came back into him, he felt delivered from his own fretted, daily self.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
