I set her in the middest of the Heithen and nacions, that are rounde aboute her, Ezekiel 5:6 but she hath despised my iudgmetes more then ye Gentiles the selues, and broken my comaundementes more then the nacions, that lye rounde aboute her: For they haue cast out myne ordinaunces, and not walked in my lawes.

Soch a courte will I kepe in the, and the whole remnaunt will I scatre in to all the wyndes.
