His hands from pots, and mirie Soyle,

Deliver'd were by me. 7 When trouble did thee Coke aftail,

On me then didst thou call, And I to free thee did not fail,

And led thee out of thrall. I answer'd thee in * Thunder deep * Be Sether

With clouds encompass’d round; ragnaman I try'd thee at the water fleep

Of Meriba renown'd.
8 Hear, O my People, beark'n well,

I testifie to thee,
Thou ancient stock of Israel,

If thou wilt list to me,
9 Throughout the Land of thy abode

No alien God shall be,
Nor thalt thou to a foreign God

In Honour bend thy knee.
10 I am the Lord thy God which brought

Thee out of Ægypt Land,
Ask large enough, and I, bafought,

Will grant thy full demand.
11 And yet my people would not heax,

Nor hearken to my voice;
And Israel, whom I lov'd so dear,

Mislik'd me for his choice.
12 Then did I leave them to their will,

And to their wandring mind ;
Their own conceits they follow'd fill,

Their own devices blinde

13 O that my People would be wise;

To serve me all their days, And o chat Israel would advise

To walk my righteous ways.
14 Then would I soon bring down their foes;

That now so proudly rise,
And turn my hand against all those

That are their enemies.
Is Who hate the Lord should then be fain

To bow to him and bend,
But they, his Peaple, should remain,

Their time thould have no end.
16 And we would feed them from the shook

with Flow'r of finest wheat, And satisfie them from the rock

With Honey for their meat.

Who thence grow bold and frong.

| Haizdiku, 4 Defend the poor and desolate,

And rescue from the hands Of wicked men the low estate

of him that help demands.

In darkness they walk on,
The earth's foundations all are * moy'd,

The Sons of God most high, 7. But ye fail die like men, and fall

As Other Princes die. : Rise God, * judge thou the earth in might, This wicked earth * redress,

E not thou filent now at length,

O God hold not thy peace, Sit not thou still O God of firength,

We cry, and do not ecafe.

2 For lo thy furions foes' now * swell, And * storm outrageously,

*Jebemajus, And they that hate thee proud and fell

Exalt their heads full high. 3 Against thy People they t contrive t Jagnarimu. † Their Plots and Counsels deep,

Sodo * Them to insnare they chiefly strive,

*Jithjagnat su gnal. * Whom thou doft hide and keep. *Tsephunca. 4 Come let us cut them off, say they,

Till they no Nation be,
That Israel's name for ever may

Be loft in memory.
ş For they consult t with all their might,
And all as one in mind

f Lev jachdan, Themselves against thee they unite,

And in firm union bind.
6 The tents of Edom, and the brood

Of Scornful Ishmael,
Moab, with them of Hagar's blood,

That in the Defart dwell,
7 Gebal and Ammon there conspire,

And hateful Amalec,
The Philistims, and they of Tyre,

Wlose bounds the Sea dosh check.
8 With them great Asshur also bands

And doth confirm the knot,
All these have lent their armed hands

To aid the Sons of Lot,

. Do to them as to Midian bold,

That wasted all the coast, To Sisera, and as is told

Thou didst to Jabin's hoaft, When at the brook of Kishon old

They were repuls'd and sain,
so At Endor quite cut off, and rowl'd

As dung upon the Plain.
II As Zeb and Oreb evil sped,

So let their Princes fpeed,
As Zeba and Zalmunna bled,

So let their Princes bleed. 12 For they amidst their pride have said,

By right now shall we seize God's Houses, and will now invade

f Their fately Palaces. Neoth Elohim bears bething 13 My God, oh make them as a Wheel,

No quiet let them find,
Giddy and restless let them reel

Like stubble from the wind.
14 As when an aged wood cakes fire

Which on a sudden straies,
The greedy Flame runs higher and highes

Till all the Mountains blaze,
Is So with thy whirl-wind them pursue,

And with thy tempeft chase;
16 * And will they * yield thee honour due;
Lord fill with shame their face.

* They seek thy 17 Atham'd, and troubl’d let them be, Name, Hebe

Troubld, and ham’d for ever,
