Notes on the Third Century
How is Christ, as the Life, to be Applied by a Soul that Misseth God's Favour and Countenance.
I Will Pray with the Spirit and with the Understanding Also-
Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
