I afterwards learnt that it was to try whether we had concealed any diamonds. This is the practice established from time immemorial, among civilised nations that scour the seas.
Вскоре я поняла, что это делается для того, чтобы узнать, не спрятали ли мы там бриллианты; это обычай, принятый с незапамятных времен всеми просвещенными нациями, которые ведут морскую торговлю.

She again began to scour the bushes, more eagerly even than on those warm mornings of the past when she had gone searching for love.
Она вновь стала пробираться сквозь кусты, сильно поредевшие по сравнению с тем, какими они были в те теплые утра, когда она еще только шла навстречу своей любви.

Matcham had half a thought to stay behind; but, seeing that Dick continued to scour full-tilt towards the eminence and not so much as looked across his shoulder, he soon thought better of that, and began to run in turn.
Мэтчем пребывал в нерешительности; но когда он увидел, что Дик продолжает карабкаться вверх по склону, ни разу даже не обернувшись, он побежал за ним вслед.

The winds and the rains would scour the poisons from the burning lands and carry them to the sea, and in the depths of the sea they would waste their venom until they could harm no living things.
Дожди и ветра соберут отраву с выжженных земель, снесут ее в океан, и там, в бездне морской, она лишится своей губительной силы и не сможет вредить жизни.
