With clouds encompass'd round; - I try'd thee at the water feep
· Of Meriba renown'd.
I testify to thee,
If thou wilt list to me;
No alien God shall be,
In honour bend thy knee.
Thee out of Egypt's Land;
Will grant thy füll demand.
Nor hearken to my voice;
Minik'd me for his choice.
And to their wand'ring mind;
Their own devices blind.
To serve me all their days,
To walk my righteous ways!
Tbat now so proudly rise,
That are their Fnemies.
75 Who hate the Lord should then be faia
To bow to him and bend :
Their time should have no end.
With Flow'r of fineft wheat; And satisfy them from the Rock
With Honey for tbeir meat.
P'S AL. LXXXII.
* Bagnadatb-el. OD in the * great * assembly stands
Of Kings and lordly States, + Bekerev, + Among the Gods, † on both his hands,
He judges and debates, 2 How long will ye pervert the right Tif pbetu
With * judgment false and wrong, gnavel. Favouring the wicked by your migbt,
Wbo thence grow bold and Arong? 3 * Regard the * weak and fatherless, * Shipbti-duhe
* Dispatch the * poor man's cause, And t raise the man in deep distress
By † just and equal Laws. + Harzdiku, 4 Defend the poor and defolate,
And rescue from the hands Of wicked men the low estate
Of him, that belp demands.
In darkness they walk on;
6 I said that ye were Gods, yea al
The Sons of God most high ; 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall
As other Princes die. 8 Rife, God, * judge thou the earth so might,
This wicked earth * redress; . Sipas For thou art he, who fhalt by right
The Nations all possess.
O God hold not thy peace,
We cry, and do not cease.
And * storm outragiously, * Jehemajun. And they, that hate thee, proud and fell
Exalt their heads full high. 3 Against thy People they f contrive + Magnarimu,
of Their Plots and Counsels deep; • Them to insnare they chiefly strive,
• Vitbjagnatsu gnal. * Whom thou doft hide and keep. * Tfepbuneca. 4 Come, let us cut them off, say they,
Till they no Nation be,
Be loft in memory.
• Themselves againft thee they unite,
And in firm union bind :
Of scornful Ishmael,
That in the Defart dwell.
And bateful Amelec,
Wbose' bounds ebe Sea dotb cbeck;
And dotb confirm the knot ;
To aid the Sons of Lot.
That wasted all the coast, To Sisera, and as is told
Tbou didâ to Jabin's boft,
They were repuls'd and fair,
As dung upon the Plain.
So let their Princes speed; As Zeba and Zalmunna bled,
So let their Princes bleed. 12 For they amidst obeir pride have faid,
By right now Thall we seize God's Houses and will now invade
+ Their stately Palaces. + Neoth Elobim bears borbi 33 My God, oh make them as a Wheel, No quiet let tbem find;
Giddy and reftlefs let them reel,
Like stubble from the wind.
Wbicb on a sudden ftrays,
Till all the Mountains blaze ;
And with thy tempeft chase ; 16 * And till they * yield thee honour due,
Lord fill with shame their face. * They seek tby 17 Alham'd, and troubled, let them be, Name, Heb.'
Troubl'd, and sham'd for ever, Ever confounded and so die
With shame, and scape it never. 18 Then shall they know that thou, whose name
Jehovah is alone,
O'er all the earth art one.
OW lovely are thy dwellings fair,
O Lord of Hofts! how dear The pleasant Tabernacles are,
Wbere thou doft dwell so near ! 1 My Soul doth long, and almost die,
Thy Courts, O Lord, to see, My heart and Aeth aloud do cry, O living God for thee.
