When wylte thou aryse out of thy slepe?

The blessings of obedience.

Proverbs 6:22 That they may leade the where thou goest, preserue the when thou art a sleape, and that when thou awakest, thou maiest talke of them Proverbs 6:23 For the commaundement is a lanterne, and the lawe a lyghtie, a chastening, and nurtour is the waye of lyfe: Proverbs 6:24 that they maye kepe the from the euell woman, and from the flattering tong of the harlot:
The mischiefs of whoredom.
