Psalms 7:10 thou rightuous God, yt triest the very hertes & the reynes. Psalms 7:11 My helpe cometh of God, which preserueth them yt are true of herte. Psalms 7:12 God is a rightuous iudge, & God is euer threateninge. Yf men wil not turne, he hath whet his swearde: he hath bent his bowe & made it ready. Psalms 7:13 He hath prepayred him the weapens of death, & ordened his arowes to destroye. Psalms 7:14 Beholde, he trauayleth with myschefe, he hath coceaued vnhappynesse, and brought forth a lye. Psalms 7:15 He hath grauen and dygged vp a pytte, but he shal fall himself in to ye pytte yt he hath made. Psalms 7:16 For his vnhappynes shall come vpon his owne heade, & his wickednes shall fall vpon his owne pate. Psalms 7:17 As for me, I will geue thankes vnto the LORDE for his rightuousnes sake, and wil prayse the name of the LORDE the most hyest.
