3. Regard the weak and fatherless,
Dispatch the poor man's cause, And † raise the man in deep distress
By t just and equal laws. 4 Defend the poor and desolate,
And rescue from the hands Of wicked men the low citate
15 Of him that belo demands. 5 They know not, nor will understand,
In darkness they walk on,
And font of order gone.
The sons of God most high ; 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall
As other princes die. 8 Rife God, S judge thou the earth in might, 25
This wicked earth § redress,
The nations all possess.
When at the brook of Kishon old,
They were repuls'd and pain,
40 11 As Zeb and Oreb evil sped,
So let their princes speed, As Zeba, and Zalmunna bled,
So let their princes bleed. 12 For they amidst their pride have said, 45
By right now seize fhall we God's houses, and will now invade
* Their stately palaces.
No quiet let them find,
Like stubble from the wind.
Which on a fiudden frays, The greedy flame runs higher and higher 55
Till all the mountains blaze; 15 So with thy whirlwind them pursue,
And with thy tempest chase; 16 † And till they + yield thee honor due, Lord, fill with shame their face,
60 17 Alham'd, and troubled let them be,
'Troubled, 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
66 Art the most high, and thou the fame
O'er all the carth art one.
Pfalin Lxxx111. E not thou silent now at length,
Sit thou not still, O God of strength,
e cry, and do not ceafe.
And || itorm outrageously,
Exalt their heads full high.
** Their plots and counsels decp, If Them to insnare they chiefly strive,
# Whom thou dost hide and keep. 4 Come let us cut them off, say they,
Till they no nation be,
Be loft in meniory. 5 For they consult S$ with all their might,
And all as one in mind Themselves against thee they unite,
And in firm union bind.
Of scornful Ishmael,
Tbat in the desert dwell;
And bateful Amalec,
Wbose bounds the fea doth check.
And doth confirm the knot:
To aid the sons of Lot.
That wafled all the coafl, To Sisera, and as is told
Tbou didff to Jabin's boft,
The pleasant tabernacles are,
Where thou dost dwell fo near! 2 My soul doth long and almost die
Thy courts, O Lord, to fee : My heart and flesh aloud do cry,
O living God, for thee. 3 There ev’n the sparrow freed from wrong
Hath found a house of rell,
Hath built her brooding neft;
They find their fufe atode,
Toward thee, my King, my God. 4. Happy, who in thy house reside,
Where thee they ever praise : 5 Happy, whose strength in thee doth bide,
And in their hearts thy ways.
That dry and barren ground,
Where springs and showers abound.
