Psalms 30:7 But as soone as thou turnedest thy face fro me, I was brought in feare. Psalms 30:8 The cried I vnto ye (O LORDE) yee vnto ye LORDE made I my prayer. Psalms 30:9 What profit is there in my bloude, yf I go downe to corrupcion? Psalms 30:10 Maye the dust geue thankes vnto ye? Or shal it declare thy faithfulnesse? Psalms 30:11 Hear (O LORDE) and haue mercy vpon me: LORDE be thou my helper. Psalms 30:12 And so thou hast turned my heuynesse into ioye: thou hast put of my sack cloth, & gyrded me wt gladnesse. That my honor might synge prayses vnto the wt out ceassynge: O LORDE my God, I wil geue thankes vnto the for euer.
