In bloody battel he brought down
Kings of prowess and renown.
For his &c.

.
He foil'd bold Seon and his hoft,
That rul'd the Amorrean coast.

For his &c.
And large-limb’d Og he did subdue,
With all his over-hardy crew.

For his &c.
And to his servant Israel
He gave their land therein to dwell.

For his &c.
He hath with a piteous eye
Beheld us in our misery.

For his &c.
And freed us from the slavery
Of the invading enemy.

For his &c.
All living creatures he doth feed,
And with full hand supplies their need.

For his &c.
Let us therefore warble forth
His mighty majesty and worth.

For his &c.
That his mansion hath on high
Above the reach of mortal eye.

For his mercies ay indure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

L AEC quæ fequuntur de Authore testimonia, 11 tametsi ipse intelligebat non tam de se quam supra se esse dicta, eò quod præclaro ingenio viri, nec non amici ita ferè solent laudare, ut omnia fuis potius virtutibus, quam veritati congruentia nimis cupidè affingant, noluit tamen horum egregiam in se voluntatem non esse notam; cum alii præsertim ut id faceret magnopere fuaderunt. Dum enim nimiæ laudis invidiam totis ab se viribus amolitur, fibique quod plus æquo est non attributum esse mavult, judicium interim hominum cordatorum atque illustrium quin summo fibi honori ducat, negare non potest.
