BY EDWARD JONES,
BARD TO THE PRINCE.
Let us now praise famous men.
The Lord hath wrought great glory by them, through his great power from the beginning.
Such as did bear rule in their kingdoms, men renowned for their power, giving counsel by their
understanding, and declaring prophecies :
Leaders of the people by their counsels, and by their knowledge of learning meet for the people, wise;
and eloquent in their instructions.
Such as found out Musical Tunes, and recited Verses in writing.
All these were honoured in their generations, and were the glory of their times.
