taken away from him while he liveth. and the time cometh when he shall overcome all the narrow-mindedness of his heart, and all his covetous desires that so easily beset him. He shall deal with a liberal hand to the poor, the needy, the sick and afflicted the widow and the fatherless. Marvelously and miraculously shall the Lord his God provide for him, even, that he shall be blessed with a fulness of the good things of this earth, and his seed after him from generation to generation. And it shall come to pass, that according to the measure that he metes out with a liberal hand unto the poor, so shall it be measured to him again by the hand of his God, even an hundred fold. Angels shall guard his habitation, and protect the lives of his posterity; and they shall become very numerous on the earth. Whomsoever he blesseth, shall be blessed and whosoever. he curseth shall be cursed. When his enemies seek to hurt or destroy him, let him rise up and curse them and the hand of God shall be upon his enemies in judgement: They shall be utterly confounded and brought to desolation. Therefore, he shall be preserved unto the utmost, for his life shall be precious in the sight of the Lord. He shall rise up and shake himself as a Lion. As a Lion riseth out of his nest and roareth until he shaketh, the hills, as a Lion goeth forth among the lesser beasts, so shall the goings forth of him be whom the Lord hath anointed to exalt the poor and humble the rich. Therefore, his name shall be on high and his rest among the sanctified.
