For the wicked bend there bow; low, they make ready the[i]r arrow upon the string, <​that​> they may privaly shoot at the upright in heart to destroy there foundation. Bud the foundations of the wicked shall be destroyed, and what can they do? for the lord when he shall come into his holy temple, sitting upon Gods throne in heaven, his eyes shall pierce the wicked. behold his eyes leds shall try the children of men, and he shall redeem the righteous, and they shall be tryed, The Lord loveth the righteous; but the wicked, and he <​him​> that loveth violence, his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snairs, fire and brimstone, and an <​a​> horible tempest, the portion of there cup. For the righteous lord loveth righteousness; his countinence doth be hold the upright.
In that day thou shalt help, <​O​> Lord, the poor and the meek of the earth, For the Godly man shall cease to be found, and the faithful fail from among the children <​of men,​> They shall speak vanity evry one of <​with​> his neighbor. With flattering lips, with a double heart do they speak; but the Lord shall cut off all flattering Lips, the toung that speaketh proud things, who have said, with our tongue we will <​we​> prevail, our lips are <​are​> own, who shall be Lord over us? therefore, thus saith the Lord, I will arise in that day, I will stand upon the earth, and I will judge the earth for the oppression of the poor, for the sigh<​ing​> of the needy; and there cry hath entered into mine ear, therefore the Lord shall sit in judgment, upon all those who say in there hearts, We all sit in safety; and puffeth at him These are the words of the lord; yea, pureword, like silver tryed in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt save thy people, O Lord; thou shalt keep them; thou shalt preserve them from the wickedness of this <​of these​> generations for ever, and ever The wicked walk on evry side, and the vilest men are exalted; but in the day of there pride thou shalt visit them.
How long, O Lord, wilt thou withdraw thyself from me? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me that I may not see thee? [p. 84]
