In bloody battel he brought down
Kings of prowess and renown.

For his ire.
He foil'd bold Seon and his host, 65

That rul'd theAmorrean coast.

For his ire.
And large-limb'd Og he did subdue,
With all his over-hardy crew. 70

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

For his ire. 75

He hath with a piteous eye
Beheld us in our misery.

For his ire. 8*

And freed us from the slavery
Of the invading enemy.

For his ire.
All living creatures he doth feed, 8$

And with full hand supplies their need.

For his ire.
Let us therefore warble forth
His mighty majesty and worth. ge

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

For his mercies ay indure, 95

Ever faithful, ever sure.

HAEC quæ sequuntur de Authore testimonial tametsi ipse intelligebat non tam de se quam supra se esse dicta, ed quod præclaro ingenioviri, nec non amici ita fere solent laudare, ut orania suis potius virtutibus, quam veritati congruentia nrmis cupide affingant, noluit tamen horum egregiam in fe voluntatem non esse notam; cum alii præsertim ut id faceret magnopere fuaderunt. Dumenimnimiæ laudis invidiam totis ab fe viribus amolitur, sibique quod plus æquo est non attributum esse mavult, judicium interim hominum cordatorum atque illustrium quin summo sibi honori ducat, negare non potest.

CEDE Meles, cedat depressa Mincius urna;
Sebetus Tassum desinat usque loqui;
At Thamesis victor cunctis ferat altior undas,
Nam per te, Milto, par tribus unus erit.
Ad Joannem Miltonum.

GRæcia Mæonidem, jactet sibi Roma Maronem,
Anglia Miltonum jactat utrique parem.
