their own heart. -85. I have seen the wicked in great power and spreading himself like a green bay tree, yet he passed away, and lo! he was not. Yea I sought him, but he could not be found.

73: 16. When I thought to know this it was too painful for me, until I went into the sanctuary of the LORD. Then understood I their end. Surely thou didst set them in slippery places; thou castedst them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation as in a moment. They are utterly consumed with terror.

¶ 75: 8. For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out the same; but the dregs thereof all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out and drink them.

PROV. 1: 23. I also will laugh at your calamity, and will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as a desolation, and your destruction as a whirlwind: when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me; but I will not answer; they shall seek me but they shall not find me: for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD; they would none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof; therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way; and be fed with their own devices. The turning away of the simple shall slay them.

9: 12. If thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

10: 7. The name of the wicked shall rot.-24. The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him. As the whirlwind passeth: so is the wicked no more. The years of the wicked shall be shortened; the expectation of the wicked shall perish: destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

11: 2. When pride cometh, then cometh shame. The perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. The wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish; and the hope of the unjust man perisheth. He that pursueth evil, pursueth it to his own death. Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not go unpunished.

13: 9. The lamp of the wicked shall be put out. - 15. The way of Evil pursueth sinners. The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

14: 9. Fools make a mock at sin. 11. The house of the wicked shall be overthrown... There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful: and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

16: 4. The LORD hath made all things for himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

29: 1. He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

ISA. 3: 10. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

.5: 13. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell bath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: but the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.-18. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart-rope: that say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust... therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcasses were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; to turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey: and that they may rob the fatherless; and what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? To whom will ye flee for help?

13: 6. Howl ye: for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a desolation from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt, and they shall be afraid. . . . Behold the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath, and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

8:21. And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward. And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness; dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

10: 1. Woe unto them that

24: 1. Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled, for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world lauguisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. - 16. The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. Fear, and the pit, and the snare are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the

snare.

1 COR. 5: 7. Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.

HEB. 7: 18. For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before, for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof, (for the law made nothing perfect,) but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. - 23. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: but this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood: wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such a high-priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens ; who needeth not daily, as those high-priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and
