+          pertain to any part of the Derivative Works, in at least one
+          of the following places: within a NOTICE text file distributed
+          as part of the Derivative Works; within the Source form or

+          notices within Derivative Works that You distribute, alongside
+          or as an addendum to the NOTICE text from the Work, provided
+          that such additional attribution notices cannot be construed
+          as modifying the License.
+
+      You may add Your own copyright statement to Your modifications and
+      may provide additional or different license terms and conditions
+      for use, reproduction, or distribution of Your modifications, or

+      reproduction, and distribution of the Work otherwise complies with
+      the conditions stated in this License.
+
+   5. Submission of Contributions. Unless You explicitly state otherwise,
+      any Contribution intentionally submitted for inclusion in the Work
+      by You to the Licensor shall be under the terms and conditions of
+      this License, without any additional terms or conditions.

+   6. Trademarks. This License does not grant permission to use the trade
+      names, trademarks, service marks, or product names of the Licensor,

+      appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any
+      risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.

+      whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise,
+      unless required by applicable law (such as deliberate and grossly
+      negligent acts) or agreed to in writing, shall any Contributor be
+      liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special,
+      incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a
+      result of this License or out of the use or inability to use the
+      Work (including but not limited to damages for loss of goodwill,
+      work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all
+      other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor
+      has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
+
+   9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability. While redistributing
+      the Work or Derivative Works thereof, You may choose to offer,
+      and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity,
+      or other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this

+      on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, not on behalf
+      of any other Contributor, and only if You agree to indemnify,
+      defend, and hold each Contributor harmless for any liability
+      incurred by, or claims asserted against, such Contributor by reason
+      of your accepting any such warranty or additional liability.

+
+  Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the
+  catholic faith. Which faith unless every one do keep whole and undefiled,
+  without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this:
+  that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding
+  the Persons, nor dividing the Essence. For there is one Person of the Father;
+  another of the Son; and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the
+  Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the Glory equal, the
+  Majesty coeternal. Such as the Father is; such is the Son; and such is the
+  Holy Ghost. The Father uncreated; the Son uncreated; and the Holy Ghost
+  uncreated. The Father unlimited; the Son unlimited; and the Holy Ghost
+  unlimited. The Father eternal; the Son eternal; and the Holy Ghost
+  eternal. And yet they are not three eternals; but one eternal. As also there
+  are not three uncreated; nor three infinites, but one uncreated; and one
+  infinite. So likewise the Father is Almighty; the Son Almighty; and the Holy
+  Ghost Almighty. And yet they are not three Almighties; but one Almighty. So
+  the Father is God; the Son is God; and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are
+  not three Gods; but one God. So likewise the Father is Lord; the Son Lord; and
+  the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet not three Lords; but one Lord. For like as we are
+  compelled by the Christian verity; to acknowledge every Person by himself to
+  be God and Lord; So are we forbidden by the catholic religion; to say, There
+  are three Gods, or three Lords. The Father is made of none; neither created,
+  nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone; not made, nor created; but
+  begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son; neither made, nor
+  created, nor begotten; but proceeding. So there is one Father, not three
+  Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts. And
+  in this Trinity none is before, or after another; none is greater, or less
+  than another. But the whole three Persons are coeternal, and coequal. So that
+  in all things, as aforesaid; the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity,
+  is to be worshipped. He therefore that will be saved, let him thus think of
+  the Trinity.
+
+  Furthermore it is necessary to everlasting salvation; that he also believe
+  faithfully the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the right Faith is,
+  that we believe and confess; that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is
+  God and Man; God, of the Essence of the Father; begotten before the worlds;
+  and Man, of the Essence of his Mother, born in the world. Perfect God; and
+  perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting. Equal to the
+  Father, as touching his Godhead; and inferior to the Father as touching his
+  Manhood. Who although he is God and Man; yet he is not two, but one
+  Christ. One; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh; but by assumption of
+  the Manhood by God. One altogether; not by confusion of Essence; but by unity
+  of Person. For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man; so God and Man is
+  one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation; descended into hell; rose again
+  the third day from the dead. He ascended into heaven, he sitteth on the right
+  hand of the God the Father Almighty, from whence he will come to judge the
+  living and the dead. At whose coming all men will rise again with their
+  bodies; And shall give account for their own works. And they that have done
+  good shall go into life everlasting; and they that have done evil, into
+  everlasting fire. This is the catholic faith; which except a man believe truly
+  and firmly, he cannot be saved.

+  Therefore, following the holy fathers, we all with one accord teach men to
+  acknowledge one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, at once complete in
+  Godhead and complete in manhood, truly God and truly man, consisting also of a
+  reasonable soul and body; of one substance with the Father as regards his
+  Godhead, and at the same time of one substance with us as regards his manhood;
+  like us in all respects, apart from sin; as regards his Godhead, begotten of
+  the Father before the ages, but yet as regards his manhood begotten, for us
+  men and for our salvation, of Mary the Virgin, the God-bearer; one and the
+  same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, recognized in two natures, without
+  confusion, without change, without division, without separation; the
+  distinction of natures being in no way annulled by the union, but rather the
+  characteristics of each nature being preserved and coming together to form one
+  person and subsistence, not as parted or separated into two persons, but one
+  and the same Son and Only-begotten God the Word, Lord Jesus Christ; even as
+  the prophets from earliest times spoke of him, and our Lord Jesus Christ
+  himself taught us, and the creed of the fathers has handed down to us.

+  Father before all worlds[f]; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;
+  begotten, not made[g], being of one substance with the Father[h], by whom all
+  things were made[i].
+
+  Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven[j], and was
+  incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man[k]; and was
+  crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate[l]; He suffered and was buried; and
+  the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures[m]; and ascended into
+  heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father[n]; and He shall come again,
+  with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no
+  end.[o]
+
+  And we believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life[p]; who proceeds
+  from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is
+  worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets[q].
+
+  And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.[r] We acknowledge
+  one baptism for the remission of sins[s]; and we look for the resurrection of
+  the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.[t]

+  - name: Of Faith in the Holy Trinity.
+    number: 1
+    text: >
+      There is but one living and true God, everlasting, without body, parts, or
+      passions; of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the Maker, and
+      Preserver of all things both visible and invisible. And in unity of this
+      Godhead there be three Persons, of one substance, power, and eternity; the
+      Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
+
+  - name: Of the Word or Son of God, which was made very Man.
+    number: 2
+    text: >
+      The Son, which is the Word of the Father, begotten from everlasting of the
+      Father, the very and eternal God, and of one substance with the Father,
+      took Man's nature in the womb of the blessed Virgin, of her substance: so
+      that two whole and perfect Natures, that is to say, the Godhead and
+      Manhood, were joined together in one Person, never to be divided, whereof
+      is one Christ, very God, and very Man; who truly suffered, was crucified,
+      dead and buried, to reconcile his Father to us, and to be a sacrifice, not
+      only for original guilt, but also for all actual sins of men.
+
+  - name: Of the going down of Christ into Hell.
+    number: 3
+    text: >
+      As Christ died for us, and was buried, so also is it to be believed, that
+      he went down into Hell.
+
+  - name: Of the Resurrection of Christ.
+    number: 4
+    text: >
+      Christ did truly rise again from death, and took again his body, with
+      flesh, bones, and all things appertaining to the perfection of Man's
+      nature; wherewith he ascended into Heaven, and there sitteth, until he
+      return to judge all Men at the last day.
+
+  - name: Of the Holy Ghost.
+    number: 5
+    text: >
+      The Holy Ghost, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is of one
+      substance, majesty, and glory, with the Father and the Son, very and
+      eternal God.
+
+  - name: Of the Sufficiency of the holy Scriptures for salvation.
+    number: 6
+    text: |
+      Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that
+      whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be
+      required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the
+      Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation. In the name of
+      the holy Scripture we do understand those Canonical Books of the Old and
+      New Testament, of whose authority was never any doubt in the Church.
+
+      Of the Names and Number of the Canonical Books
+
+      Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth,
+      The First Book of Samuel, The Second Book of Samuel, The First Book of
+      Kings, The Second Book of Kings, The First Book of Chronicles, The Second
+      Book of Chronicles, The First Book of Esdras [Ezra], The Second Book of
+      Esdras [Nehemiah], The Book of Esther, The Book of Job, The Psalms, The
+      Proverbs, Ecclesiastes or Preacher, Cantica, or Songs of Solomon, Four
+      Prophets the greater, Twelve Prophets the less.
+
+      And the other Books (as Hierome saith) the Church doth read for example of
+      life and instruction of manners; but yet doth it not apply them to
+      establish any doctrine; such are these following:
+
+      The Third Book of Esdras [I Esdras], The Fourth Book of Esdras [II
+      Esdras], The Book of Tobias, The Book of Judith, The rest of the Book of
+      Esther, The Book of Wisdom, Jesus the Son of Sirach [or Ecclesiasticus],
+      Baruch the Prophet, The Song of the Three Children, The Story of Susanna,
+      Of Bel and the Dragon, The Prayer of Manasses, The First Book of
+      Maccabees, The Second Book of Maccabees.  All the Books of the New
+      Testament, as they are commonly received, we do receive, and account them
+      Canonical.
+
+  - name: Of the Old Testament.
+    number: 7
+    text: >
+      The Old Testament is not contrary to the New: for both in the Old and New
+      Testament everlasting life is offered to Mankind by Christ, who is the
+      only Mediator between God and Man, being both God and Man. Wherefore they
+      are not to be heard, which feign that the old Fathers did look only for
+      transitory promises. Although the Law given from God by Moses, as touching
+      Ceremonies and Rites, do not bind Christian men, nor the Civil precepts
+      thereof ought of necessity to be received in any commonwealth; yet
+      notwithstanding, no Christian man whatsoever is free from the obedience of
+      the Commandments which are called Moral.
+
+  - name: Of the Creeds.
+    number: 8
+    text: >
+      The Three Creeds, Nicene Creed, Athanasius's Creed, and that which is
+      commonly called the Apostles' Creed, ought thoroughly to be received and
+      believed: for they may be proved by most certain warrants of holy
+      Scripture.
+
+  - name: Of Original or Birth-sin.
+    number: 9
+    text: >
+      Original Sin standeth not in the following of Adam, (as the Pelagians do
+      vainly talk;) but it is the fault and corruption of the Nature of every
+      man, that naturally is ingendered of the offspring of Adam; whereby man is
+      very far gone from original righteousness, and is of his own nature
+      inclined to evil, so that the flesh lusteth always contrary to the spirit;
+      and therefore in every person born into this world, it deserveth God's
+      wrath and damnation. And this infection of nature doth remain, yea in them
+      that are regenerated; whereby the lust of the flesh, called in the Greek,
+      φρονημα σαρκος, which some do expound the wisdom, some sensuality, some
+      the affection, some the desire, of the flesh, is not subject to the Law of
+      God. And although there is no condemnation for them that believe and are
+      baptized, yet the Apostle doth confess, that concupiscence and lust hath
+      of itself the nature of sin.
+
+  - name: Of Free-Will.
+    number: 10
+    text: >
+      The condition of Man after the fall of Adam is such, that he cannot turn
+      and prepare himself, by his own natural strength and good works, to faith,
+      and calling upon God: Wherefore we have no power to do good works pleasant
+      and acceptable to God, without the grace of God by Christ preventing us,
+      that we may have a good will, and working with us, when we have that good
+      will.
+
+  - name: Of the Justification of Man.
+    number: 11
+    text: >
+      We are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of our Lord and
+      Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our own works or deservings:
+      Wherefore, that we are justified by Faith only is a most wholesome
+      Doctrine, and very full of comfort, as more largely is expressed in the
+      Homily of Justification.
+
+  - name: Of Good Works.
+    number: 12
+    text: >
+      Albeit that Good Works, which are the fruits of Faith, and follow after
+      Justification, cannot put away our sins, and endure the severity of God's
+      Judgement; yet are they pleasing and acceptable to God in Christ, and do
+      spring out necessarily of a true and lively Faith; insomuch that by them a
+      lively Faith may be as evidently known as a tree discerned by the fruit.
+
+  - name: Of Works before Justification.
+    number: 13
+    text: >
+      Works done before the grace of Christ, and the Inspiration of his Spirit,
+      are not pleasant to God, forasmuch as they spring not of faith in Jesus
+      Christ, neither do they make men meet to receive grace, or (as the
+      School-authors say) deserve grace of congruity: yea rather, for that they
+      are not done as God hath willed and commanded them to be done, we doubt
+      not but they have the nature of sin.
+
+  - name: Of Works of Supererogation.
+    number: 14
+    text: >
+      Voluntary Works besides, over and above, God's Commandments, which they
+      call Works of Supererogation, cannot be taught without arrogancy and
+      impiety: for by them men do declare, that they do not only render unto God
+      as much as they are bound to do, but that they do more for his sake, than
+      of bounden duty is required: whereas Christ saith plainly, When ye have
+      done all that are commanded to you, say, We are unprofitable servants.
+
+  - name: Of Christ alone without Sin.
+    number: 15
+    text: >
+      Christ in the truth of our nature was made like unto us in all things, sin
+      only except, from which he was clearly void, both in his flesh, and in his
+      spirit. He came to be the Lamb without spot, who, by sacrifice of himself
+      once made, should take away the sins of the world, and sin, as Saint John
+      saith, was not in him. But all we the rest, although baptized, and born
+      again in Christ, yet offend in many things; and if we say we have no sin,
+      we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
+
+  - name: Of Sin after Baptism.
+    number: 16
+    text: >
+      Not every deadly sin willingly committed after Baptism is sin against the
+      Holy Ghost, and unpardonable. Wherefore the grant of repentance is not to
+      be denied to such as fall into sin after Baptism. After we have received
+      the Holy Ghost, we may depart from grace given, and fall into sin, and by
+      the grace of God we may arise again, and amend our lives. And therefore
+      they are to be condemned, which say, they can no more sin as long as they
+      live here, or deny the place of forgiveness to such as truly repent.
+
+  - name: Of Predestination and Election.
+    number: 17
+    text: |
+      Predestination to Life is the everlasting purpose of God, whereby (before
+      the foundations of the world were laid) he hath constantly decreed by his
+      counsel secret to us, to deliver from curse and damnation those whom he
+      hath chosen in Christ out of mankind, and to bring them by Christ to
+      everlasting salvation, as vessels made to honour. Wherefore, they which be
+      endued with so excellent a benefit of God be called according to God's
+      purpose by his Spirit working in due season: they through Grace obey the
+      calling: they be justified freely: they be made sons of God by adoption:
+      they be made like the image of his only-begotten Son Jesus Christ: they
+      walk religiously in good works, and at length, by God's mercy, they attain
+      to everlasting felicity.
+
+      As the godly consideration of Predestination, and our Election in Christ,
+      is full of sweet, pleasant, and unspeakable comfort to godly persons, and
+      such as feel in themselves the working of the Spirit of Christ, mortifying
+      the works of the flesh, and their earthly members, and drawing up their
+      mind to high and heavenly things, as well because it doth greatly
+      establish and confirm their faith of eternal Salvation to be enjoyed
+      through Christ, as because it doth fervently kindle their love towards
+      God: So, for curious and carnal persons, lacking the Spirit of Christ, to
+      have continually before their eyes the sentence of God's Predestination,
+      is a most dangerous downfall, whereby the Devil doth thrust them either
+      into desperation, or into wretchlessness of most unclean living, no less
+      perilous than desperation.
+
+      Furthermore, we must receive God's promises in such wise, as they be
+      generally set forth to us in holy Scripture: and, in our doings, that Will
+      of God is to be followed, which we have expressly declared unto us in the
+      Word of God.
+
+  - name: Of obtaining eternal Salvation only by the Name of Christ.
+    number: 18
+    text: >
+      They also are to be had accursed that presume to say, That every man shall
+      be saved by the Law or Sect which he professeth, so that he be diligent to
+      frame his life according to that Law, and the light of Nature. For holy
+      Scripture doth set out unto us only the Name of Jesus Christ, whereby men
+      must be saved.
+
+  - name: Of the Church.
+    number: 19
+    text: |
+      The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in the
+      which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly
+      ministered according to Christ's ordinance in all those things that of
+      necessity are requisite to the same.
+
+      As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred; so also
+      the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of
+      Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.
+
+  - name: Of the Authority of the Church.
+    number: 20
+    text: >
+      The Church hath power to decree Rites or Ceremonies, and authority in
+      Controversies of Faith: And yet it is not lawful for the Church to ordain
+      any thing that is contrary to God's Word written, neither may it so
+      expound one place of Scripture, that it be repugnant to
+      another. Wherefore, although the Church be a witness and a keeper of holy
+      Writ, yet, as it ought not to decree any thing against the same, so
+      besides the same ought it not to enforce any thing to be believed for
+      necessity of Salvation.
+
+  - name: Of the Authority of General Councils.
+    number: 21
+    text: >
+      General Councils may not be gathered together without the commandment and
+      will of Princes. And when they be gathered together, (forasmuch as they be
+      an assembly of men, whereof all be not governed with the Spirit and Word
+      of God,) they may err, and sometimes have erred, even in things pertaining
+      unto God. Wherefore things ordained by them as necessary to salvation have
+      neither strength nor authority, unless it may be declared that they be
+      taken out of holy Scripture.
+
+  - name: Of Purgatory.
+    number: 22
+    text: >
+      The Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Worshipping and
+      Adoration, as well of Images as of Reliques, and also invocation of
+      Saints, is a fond thing vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of
+      Scripture, but rather repugnant to the Word of God.
+
+  - name: Of Ministering in the Congregation.
+    number: 23
+    text: >
+      It is not lawful for any man to take upon him the office of public
+      preaching, or ministering the Sacraments in the Congregation, before he be
+      lawfully called, and sent to execute the same. And those we ought to judge
+      lawfully called and sent, which be chosen and called to this work by men
+      who have public authority given unto them in the Congregation, to call and
+      send Ministers into the Lord's vineyard.
+
+  - name: Of speaking in the Congregation in such a tongue as the people understandeth.
+    number: 24
+    text: >
+      It is a thing plainly repugnant to the Word of God, and the custom of the
+      Primitive Church, to have public Prayer in the Church, or to minister the
+      Sacraments in a tongue not understanded of the people.
+
+  - name: Of the Sacraments.
+    number: 25
+    text: |
+      Sacraments ordained of Christ be not only badges or tokens of Christian
+      men's profession, but rather they be certain sure witnesses, and effectual
+      signs of grace, and God's good will towards us, by the which he doth work
+      invisibly in us, and doth not only quicken, but also strengthen and
+      confirm our Faith in him.
+
+      There are two Sacraments ordained of Christ our Lord in the Gospel, that
+      is to say, Baptism, and the Supper of the Lord.
+
+      Those five commonly called Sacraments, that is to say, Confirmation,
+      Penance, Orders, Matrimony, and extreme Unction, are not to be counted for
+      Sacraments of the Gospel, being such as have grown partly of the corrupt
+      following of the Apostles, partly are states of life allowed in the
+      Scriptures; but yet have not like nature of Sacraments with Baptism, and
+      the Lord's Supper, for that they have not any visible sign or ceremony
+      ordained of God.
+
+      The Sacraments were not ordained of Christ to be gazed upon, or to be
+      carried about, but that we should duly use them. And in such only as
+      worthily receive the same they have a wholesome effect or operation: but
+      they that receive them unworthily purchase to themselves damnation, as
+      Saint Paul saith.
+
+  - name: Of the Unworthiness of the Ministers, which hinders not the effect of the Sacraments.
+    number: 26
+    text: |
+      Although in the visible Church the evil be ever mingled with the good, and
+      sometimes the evil have chief authority in the Ministration of the Word
+      and Sacraments, yet forasmuch as they do not the same in their own name,
+      but in Christ's, and do minister by his commission and authority, we may
+      use their Ministry, both in hearing the Word of God, and in receiving of
+      the Sacraments. Neither is the effect of Christ's ordinance taken away by
+      their wickedness, nor the grace of God's gifts diminished from such as by
+      faith and rightly do receive the Sacraments ministered unto them; which be
+      effectual, because of Christ's institution and promise, although they be
+      ministered by evil men.
+
+      Nevertheless, it appertaineth to the discipline of the Church, that
+      inquiry be made of evil Ministers, and that they be accused by those that
+      have knowledge of their offences; and finally being found guilty, by just
+      judgement be deposed.
+
+  - name: Of Baptism.
+    number: 27
+    text: >
+      Baptism is not only a sign of profession, and mark of difference, whereby
+      Christian men are discerned from others that be not christened, but it is
+      also a sign of Regeneration or new Birth, whereby, as by an instrument,
+      they that receive Baptism rightly are grafted into the Church; the
+      promises of forgiveness of sin, and of our adoption to be the sons of God
+      by the Holy Ghost, are visibly signed and sealed; Faith is confirmed, and
+      Grace increased by virtue of prayer unto God. The Baptism of young
+      Children is in any wise to be retained in the Church, as most agreeable
+      with the institution of Christ.
+
+  - name: Of the Lord's Supper.
+    number: 28

+      The Supper of the Lord is not only a sign of the love that Christians
+      ought to have among themselves one to another; but rather is a Sacrament
+      of our Redemption by Christ's death: insomuch that to such as rightly,
+      worthily, and with faith, receive the same, the Bread which we break is a
+      partaking of the Body of Christ; and likewise the Cup of Blessing is a
+      partaking of the Blood of Christ.
+
+      Transubstantiation (or the change of the substance of Bread and Wine) in
+      the Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by holy Writ; but is repugnant to
+      the plain words of Scripture, overthroweth the nature of a Sacrament, and
+      hath given occasion to many superstitions.
+
+      The Body of Christ is given, taken, and eaten, in the Supper, only after
+      an heavenly and spiritual manner. And the mean whereby the Body of Christ
+      is received and eaten in the Supper is Faith.
+
+      The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was not by Christ's ordinance reserved,
+      carried about, lifted up, or worshipped.

+      The Wicked, and such as be void of a lively faith, although they do
+      carnally and visibly press with their teeth (as Saint Augustine saith) the
+      Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ, yet in no wise are they
+      partakers of Christ: but rather, to their condemnation, do eat and drink
+      the sign or Sacrament of so great a thing.

+      The Cup of the Lord is not to be denied to the Lay-people: for both the

+      The Offering of Christ once made is that perfect redemption, propitiation,
+      and satisfaction, for all the sins of the whole world, both original and
+      actual; and there is none other satisfaction for sin, but that
+      alone. Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly
+      said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and the dead, to have
+      remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, and dangerous

+      Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, are not commanded by God's Law, either to

+      That person which by open denunciation of the Church is rightly cut off

+      openly reconciled by penance, and received into the Church by a judge that

+      It is not necessary that Traditions and Ceremonies be in all places one,

+      changed according to the diversities of countries, times, and men's
+      manners, so that nothing be ordained against God's Word. Whosoever
+      through his private judgement, willingly and purposely, doth openly break
+      the traditions and ceremonies of the Church, which be not repugnant to the
+      Word of God, and be ordained and approved by common authority, ought to be
+      rebuked openly, (that others may fear to do the like,) as he that
+      offendeth against the common order of the Church, and hurteth the
+      authority of the Magistrate, and woundeth the consciences of the weak
+      brethren.
+
+      Every particular or national Church hath authority to ordain, change, and
+      abolish, ceremonies or rites of the Church ordained only by man's
+      authority, so that all things be done to edifying.

+      The second Book of Homilies, the several titles whereof we have joined

+      set forth in the time of Edward the Sixth; and therefore we judge them to
+      be read in Churches by the Ministers, diligently and distinctly, that they

+      The Book of Consecration of Archbishops and Bishops, and Ordering of
+      Priests and Deacons, lately set forth in the time of Edward the Sixth, and
+      confirmed at the same time by authority of Parliament, doth contain all
+      things necessary to such Consecration and Ordering: neither hath it any
+      thing, that of itself is superstitious and ungodly. And therefore

+      since the second year of the forenamed King Edward unto this time, or
+      hereafter shall be consecrated or ordered according to the same Rites; we

+
+      The King's Majesty hath the chief power in this Realm of England, and

+      appertain, and is not, nor ought to be, subject to any foreign
+      Jurisdiction.
+
+      Where we attribute to the King's Majesty the chief government, by which
+      Titles we understand the minds of some slanderous folks to be offended; we
+      give not to our Princes the ministering either of God's Word, or of the
+      Sacraments, the which thing the Injunctions also lately set forth by
+      Elizabeth our Queen do most plainly testify; but that only prerogative,
+      which we see to have been given always to all godly Princes in holy
+      Scriptures by God himself; that is, that they should rule all estates and
+      degrees committed to their charge by God, whether they be Ecclesiastical
+      or Temporal, and restrain with the civil sword the stubborn and evil
+      doers.
+
+      The Bishop of Rome hath no jurisdiction in this Realm of England.
+
+      The Laws of the Realm may punish Christian men with death, for heinous and
+      grievous offences.
+
+      It is lawful for Christian men, at the commandment of the Magistrate, to

+      The Riches and Goods of Christians are not common, as touching the right,

+    number: 39
+    text: >
+      As we confess that vain and rash Swearing is forbidden Christian men by

+      requireth, in a cause of faith and charity, so it be done according to the
+      Prophet's teaching, in justice, judgement, and truth.

+        Article 1 WE AFFIRM that God has designed marriage to be a covenantal,
+        sexual, procreative, lifelong union of one man and one woman, as husband
+        and wife, and is meant to signify the covenant love between Christ and
+        his bride the church. WE DENY that God has designed marriage to be a
+        homosexual, polygamous, or polyamorous relationship. We also deny that
+        marriage is a mere human contract rather than a covenant made before

+        in which he was created, was the placing him in paradise, appointing him
+        to dress it, giving him liberty to eat of the fruit of the earth;
+        putting the creatures under his dominion, and <i>ordaining marriage for his
+        help</i>; affording him communion with Himself; instituting the Sabbath;
+        entering into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of personal,
+        perfect, and perpetual obedience, of which the tree of life was a
+        pledge; and forbidding to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil,

+      That man hath perfect blessedness
+      who walketh not astray
+      In counsel of ungodly men,
+      nor stands in sinners' way,
+
+      Nor sitteth in the scorner's chair:
+      But placeth his delight
+      Upon GOD's law, and meditates
+      on his law day and night.
+
+      He shall be like a tree that grows
+      near planted by a river,
+      Which in his season yields his fruit,
+      and his leaf fadeth never:
+
+      And all he doth shall prosper well.
+      The wicked are not so;
+      But like they are unto the chaff,
+      which wind drives to and fro.
+
+      In judgment therefore shall not stand
+      such as ungodly are;
+      Nor in th' assembly of the just
+      shall wicked men appear.
+
+      For why? the way of godly men
+      unto the LORD is known:
+      Whereas the way of wicked men
+      shall quite be overthrown.
+
+    commentary:
+      john_brown: >
+        Perhaps this psalm was added by Ezra, or whoever else was the
+        collector of the others into one book. We have represented to us in
+        it, (1.) The character of the godly; how holy they are, abstaining
+        from every temptation to, or appearance of evil; and with pleasure
+        meditating on, and endeavouring to fulfil the whole law of God, ver.
+        1-2; and how happy, planted in the nearest fellowship with Jesus, the
+        River of Life, they prosper in their lawful attempts: They never fall
+        from their grace or profession; and they shall stand with approbation
+        at the judgment-seat of God, ver. 3. (2.) The sinfulness and misery of
+        the wicked: How different from, and contrary to the godly in their
+        inclinations, companions, exercises, and ends! How light and
+        unsubstantial, as chaff, and ready to be hurled by the storms of
+        infinite wrath, into the depths of hell, as cast and condemned in the
+        righteous judgment of God! ver. 4-5. (3.) The great reason of the
+        happiness of saints, and of the misery of sinners: The Lord loveth the
+        righteous, and observes and approves of their inclinations and
+        behaviour; but, as an enemy, he brings destructive vengeance upon the
+        wicked, ver. 6.<br/>While I sing these important lines, let my soul
+        lift up her eyes to that great pattern of perfection, Jesus, the man
+        of God's right hand, who was holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate
+        from sinners; and who fulfilled all righteousness, magnified the law,
+        and made it honourable for men ­ for me. United to his person, clothed
+        with his righteousness, and all inflamed and animated with his
+        redeeming love shed abroad in my heart, let me examine myself as in
+        his sight; let me walk in him as my way, and follow him as my pattern
+        and guide: Let me with solemn awe look to, and prepare for his last,
+        his eternal judgment!

+      Why rage the heathen? and vain things
+      why do the people mind?
+      Kings of the earth do set themselves,
+      and princes are combined,
+
+      To plot against the LORD, and his
+      Anointed, saying thus,
+      Let us asunder break their bands,
+      and cast their cords from us.
+
+      He that in heaven sits shall laugh;
+      the Lord shall scorn them all.
+      Then shall he speak to them in wrath,
+      in rage he vex them shall.
+
+      Yet, notwithstanding, I have him
+      to be my King appointed;
+      And over Zion, my holy hill,
+      I have him King anointed.
+
+      The sure decree I will declare;
+      the LORD hath said to me,
+      Thou art mine only Son; this day
+      I have begotten thee.
+
+      Ask of me, and for heritage
+      the heathen I'll make thine;
+      And, for possession, I to thee
+      will give earth's utmost line.
+
+      Thou shalt, as with a weighty rod
+      of iron, break them all;
+      And, as a potter's sherd, thou shalt
+      them dash in pieces small.
+
+      Now, therefore, kings, be wise; be taught,
+      ye judges of the earth:
+      Serve GOD in fear, and see that ye
+      join trembling with your mirth.
+
+      Kiss ye the Son, lest in his ire
+      ye perish from the way,
+      If once his wrath begin to burn:
+      bless'd all that on him stay.

+        and the victories over his enemies which attended it. Compare Psalm
+        18; 2 Samuel 3, 5, 8, 10, 18, 20. But the whole of it respects Jesus
+        our Redeemer. Behold, (1.) The violent and harmonious, but
+        unsuccessful opposition, which Jews and Gentiles of all ranks make to
+        the person and redemption work of the great God my Saviour. Behold
+        what ruin and woe they draw upon themselves by their attempts! ver.
+        1-5, 9. (2.) Behold how, notwithstanding all their raging malice and
+        furious opposition, Jehovah instals our Redeemer King in his church,
+        and infallibly fixeth him on his throne; avows him his only begotten
+        Son, and gives unto him the Gentiles for his people! ver. 6-8. (3.)
+        Behold Jehovah’s demand of serious consideration and fear of, joy in,
+        and trust, obedience and love to his exalted Son, ver. 9-12.
+        <br/><br/><br/>     While I sing, let me remark the horrid nature of

+        Jesus Christ. Let me with wonder bless his name, that I have not
+        already perished in mine iniquity. Let me with earnestness accept that
+        once debased Redeemer, as my Saviour, my sovereign, my proprietor, my
+        God, my all. Let me learn to know him, rejoice in him, and with holy
+        awe, commit my whole salvation, and the salvation of my country, nay,
+        of all the ends of the earth to him.

+        number and malice of his enemies, ver. 1-2. (2.) He encourageth
+        himself in his God, as the source and subject-matter of his safety,
+        joy, and honour, ver. 3. (3.) He recollects, how, on former occasions,
+        his troubles had driven him to his prayers; how he had always found
+        God ready to hear and grant his requests; how safe and easy he had
+        lived under his protection; and how effectually he had broken the
+        power and restrained the malice of his enemies, ver 4-5, 7. ( 4.)
+        Triumphantly trusting in God, as the salvation and blesser of his
+        people, he silenceth all his fears, and pours forth his prayers for
+        new protection and deliverance, ver. 6, 8. <br/><br/><br/> Think, my

+        This psalm was, perhaps, composed on the same occasion as the former,
+        when David fled from Absalom his son. Here, (1.) David encouraged by
+        former experience, casts his burden on the Lord, and supplicates a
+        merciful deliverance, ver. 1. (2.) Addressing himself to men,
+        particularly to his persecutors, he reproves their contempt of God and
+        religion, their delight in, and practice of vanity, fraud, and
+        falsehood. He represents the happiness of the saints in having God
+        their protector, and ready to hear their requests. He recommends a
+        holy filial awe of God, and careful abstinence from sin; together with
+        a devoting of themselves, and their conduct and substance, to the
+        Lord, ver. 2-5. (3.) To encourage them to the study of practical
+        religion, he remarks, what superlative satisfaction and rest himself
+        had found in familiar fellowship with God, and in a believing
+        dependence on him, ver. 6-8. <br/><br/> <br/>While I sing, let me have
+        faith in God, as my own God in Christ. Let me abhor that levity of
+        mind, that deceitfulness, that earthly mindedness proper to the

+        and his country's enemies, and for giving him a complete victory over
+        them, ver. 1-6, and his excitement of others to join with him therein,
+        ver. 11-12. (2). His triumph in God as the righteous judge of the
+        world, protector of his people, and the destroyer of his implacable
+        enemies, ver. 7-10, 15-18. (3.) His requests for further grounds of
+        praising God as his own deliverer, and the confounder of his enemies,
+        ver. 13-14, 19-20.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing these subjects, let me
+        chiefly consider the blessings of redemption, the victories of my
+        Redeemer over sin, death, and hell; and believe that I, through him,
+        shall be more than a conqueror. Let the ruin of transgressors

+      Wherefore is it that thou, O LORD,
+      dost stand from us afar?
+      And wherefore hidest thou thyself
+      when times so troublous are?
+
+      The wicked in his loftiness
+      doth persecute the poor:
+      In these devices they have framed
+      let them be taken sure.
+
+      The wicked of his heart's desire
+      doth talk with boasting great;
+      He blesseth him that's covetous,
+      whom yet the LORD doth hate.
+
+      The wicked, through his pride of face,
+      on God he doth not call;
+      And in the counsels of his heart
+      the Lord is not at all.
+
+      His ways they always grievous are;
+      thy judgments from his sight
+      Removèd are: at all his foes
+      he puffeth with despite.
+

+      And no adversity at all
+      shall ever come to me.
+
+      His mouth with cursing, fraud, deceit,
+      is filled abundantly;
+      And underneath his tongue there is
+      mischief and vanity.
+
+      He closely sits in villages;
+      he slays the innocent:
+      Against the poor that pass him by
+      his cruel eyes are bent.
+
+      He, lion-like, lurks in his den;
+      he waits the poor to take;
+      And when he draws him in his net,
+      his prey he doth him make.
+
+      Himself he humbleth very low,
+      he croucheth down withal,
+      That so a multitude of poor
+      may by his strong ones fall.
+
+      He thus hath said within his heart,
+      The Lord hath quite forgot;
+      He hides his countenance, and he
+      for ever sees it not.
+
+      O LORD, do thou arise; O God,
+      lift up thine hand on high:
+      Put not the meek afflicted ones
+      out of thy memory.
+
+      Why is it that the wicked man
+      thus doth the Lord despise?
+      Because that God will it require
+      he in his heart denies.
+
+      Thou hast it seen; for their mischief
+      and spite thou wilt repay:
+      The poor commits himself to thee;
+      thou art the orphan's stay.
+
+      The arm break of the wicked man,
+      and of the evil one;
+      Do thou seek out his wickedness,
+      until thou findest none.
+
+      The LORD is king through ages all,
+      ev'n to eternity;
+      The heathen people from his land
+      are perished utterly.
+
+      O LORD, of those that humble are
+      thou the desire didst hear;
+      Thou wilt prepare their heart, and thou
+      to hear wilt bend thine ear;
+
+      To judge the fatherless, and those

+        covenant claim to God, as his God and portion for ever; and as our God
+        and portion in him! Behold how, supported of God in his holy manhood,
+        he suffers unto a tremendous death, and debased burial; but being
+        raised again, he is crowned with everlasting glory and honour! Behold
+        how the agonies of suffering, and the pains of death, are succeeded
+        with fulness of joy, and rivers of life and pleasures, at God's right
+        hand for evermore! Looking to him, let me with patience run the race
+        that is set before me, living on, and rejoicing in God, as my all, and
+        in all; and looking for the blessed hope, and glorious appearing of
+        the great God my Saviour. Through him, neither sin, nor devils, nor
+        death, nor hell, shall be able to prevent my immediate and everlasting
+        enjoyment of Jehovah, as my infinite portion and exceeding joy.

+      death's snares did me prevent.
+
+      In my distress I called on God,

+      And thickest clouds of darkness did
+      under his feet attend.
+
+      And he upon a cherub rode,
+      and thereon he did fly;
+      Yea, on the swift wings of the wind
+      his flight was from on high.
+
+      He darkness made his secret place:
+      about him, for his tent,
+      Dark waters were, and thickest clouds
+      of th' airy firmament.
+
+      And at the brightness of that light,
+      which was before his eye,
+      His thick clouds passed away, hailstones
+      and coals of fire did fly.
+
+      The LORD God also in the heav'ns
+      did thunder in his ire;
+      And there the Highest gave his voice,
+      hailstones and coals of fire.
+
+      Yea, he his arrows sent abroad,
+      and them he scatterèd;

+
+      The waters' channels then were seen,

+      At thy rebuke discovered were,
+      and at thy nostrils' blast.
+
+      And from above the Lord sent down,
+      and took me from below;
+      From many waters he me drew,
+      which would me overflow.
+
+      He me relieved from my strong foes,
+      and such as did me hate;
+      Because he saw that they for me
+      too strong were, and too great.
+
+      They me prevented in the day
+      of my calamity;
+      But even then the LORD himself
+      a stay was unto me.
+
+      He to a place where liberty
+      and room was hath me brought;
+      Because he took delight in me,
+      he my deliv'rance wrought.
+
+      According to my righteousness
+      he did me recompense,
+      He me repaid according to
+      my hands' pure innocence.
+
+      For I GOD's ways kept, from my God
+      did not turn wickedly.
+        His judgments were before me, I
+      his laws put not from me.
+
+      Sincere before him was my heart;
+      with him upright was I;
+      And watchfully I kept myself
+      from mine iniquity.
+
+      After my righteousness the LORD
+      hath recompensèd me,
+      After the cleanness of my hands
+      appearing in his eye.
+
+      Thou gracious to the gracious art,
+      to upright men upright:
+      Pure to the pure, froward thou kyth'st
+      unto the froward wight.
+
+      For thou wilt the afflicted save
+      in grief that low do lie:
+      But wilt bring down the countenance
+      of them whose looks are high.
+
+      The LORD will light my candle so,
+      that it shall shine full bright:
+      The LORD my God will also make
+      my darkness to be light.
+
+      By thee through troops of men I break,
+      and them discomfit all;
+      And, by my God assisting me,
+      I overleap a wall.
+
+      As for God, perfect is his way:
+      the LORD his word is tried;
+      He is a buckler to all those
+      who do in him confide.
+
+      Who but the LORD is God? but he
+      who is a rock and stay?
+      'Tis God that girdeth me with strength,
+      and perfect makes my way.
+
+      He made my feet swift as the hinds,
+      set me on my high places.
+      Mine hands to war he taught, mine arms
+      brake bows of steel in pieces.
+
+      The shield of thy salvätion
+      thou didst on me bestow:
+      Thy right hand held me up, and great
+      thy kindness made me grow.
+
+      And in my way my steps thou hast
+      enlargèd under me,
+      That I go safely, and my feet
+      are kept from sliding free.
+
+      Mine en'mies I pursuèd have,
+      and did them overtake;
+      Nor did I turn again till I
+      an end of them did make.
+
+      I wounded them, they could not rise;
+      they at my feet did fall.
+      Thou girdest me with strength for war;
+      my foes thou brought'st down all:
+
+      And thou hast giv'n to me the necks
+      of all mine enemies;
+      That I might them destroy and slay,
+      who did against me rise.
+
+      They crièd out, but there was none
+      that would or could them save;
+      Yea, they did cry unto the LORD,
+      but he no answer gave.
+
+      Then did I beat them small as dust
+      before the wind that flies;
+      And I did cast them out like dirt
+      upon the street that lies.
+
+      Thou mad'st me free from people's strife,
+      and heathen's head to be:
+      A people whom I have not known
+      shall service do to me.
+
+      At hearing they shall me obey,
+      to me they shall submit.
+      Strangers for fear shall fade away,
+      who in close places sit.
+
+      GOD lives, bless'd be my Rock; the God
+      of my health praisèd be.
+      God doth avenge me, and subdues
+      the people under me.
+
+      He saves me from mine enemies;
+      yea, thou hast lifted me
+      Above my foes; and from the man
+      of vi'lence set me free.
+
+      Therefore to thee will I give thanks

+        merciful, almighty, and seasonable deliverer, from depths of trouble,

+        the Lord had enabled him to maintain, and on the gracious kindness of
+        God, consequential thereupon, ver. 20-28. (3.) His thankful ascription
+        of all the glory of his noted exploits to God, as his director and
+        strengthener, ver. 29-42. (4.) His triumphant faith and hope, of
+        further assistance and favour from God, to himself and to his seed for
+        evermore, ver. 43-50.<br/><br/><br/>But let me not forget Jesus, to
+        whom Jehovah is so closely, so marvellously, so sweetly related:
+        Jesus, who so ardently loveth his eternal Father, and for ever returns
+        the grateful remembrance of his kindness to him, and to his chosen
+        seed, in delivering him from distress; in raising him from the dead;
+        in rewarding his obedience unto death, in giving him glory at his own
+        right hand, and in rendering all nations his obedient subjects. Let me
+        sing this new song, in the full assurance of faith, that God in Christ
+        is my all and in all; and with a heart ravished with the consolations
+        of Christ, and in the sweet reviews of what he hath done, what he
+        doth, and what he will for ever do, for my soul.

+      My God, my God, why hast thou me

+
+      All day, my God, to thee I cry,
+      yet am not heard by thee;
+      And in the season of the night
+      I cannot silent be.
+
+      But thou art holy, thou that dost
+      inhabit Isr'el's praise.
+      Our fathers hoped in thee, they hoped,
+      and thou didst them release.
+
+      When unto thee they sent their cry,
+      to them deliv'rance came:
+      Because they put their trust in thee,
+      they were not put to shame.
+
+      But as for me, a worm I am,
+      and as no man am prized:
+      Reproach of men I am, and by
+      the people am despised.
+
+      All that me see laugh me to scorn;
+      shoot out the lip do they;
+      They nod and shake their heads at me,
+      and, mocking, thus do say,
+
+      This man did trust in GOD, that he
+      would free him by his might:
+      Let him deliver him, sith he
+      had in him such delight.
+
+      But thou art he out of the womb
+      that didst me safely take;
+      When I was on my mother's breasts
+      thou me to hope didst make.
+
+      And I was cast upon thy care,
+      ev'n from the womb till now;
+      And from my mother's belly, Lord,
+      my God and guide art thou.
+
+      Be not far off, for grief is near,

+      Bulls many compass me, strong bulls
+      of Bashan me surround.
+
+      Their mouths they opened wide on me,
+      upon me gape did they,
+      Like to a lion ravening
+      and roaring for his prey.
+
+      Like water I'm poured out, my bones
+      all out of joint do part:
+      Amidst my bowels, as the wax,
+      so melted is my heart.
+
+      My strength is like a potsherd dried;
+      my tongue it cleaveth fast
+      Unto my jaws; and to the dust
+      of death thou brought me hast.
+
+      For dogs have compassed me about:
+      the wicked, that did meet
+      In their assembly, me inclosed;
+      they pierced my hands and feet.
+
+      I all my bones may tell; they do
+      upon me look and stare.
+      Upon my vesture lots they cast,
+      and clothes among them share.
+
+      But be not far, O LORD, my strength;
+      haste to give help to me.
+      From sword my soul, from pow'r of dogs
+      my darling set thou free.
+
+      Out of the roaring lion's mouth
+      do thou me shield and save:
+      For from the horns of unicorns
+      an ear to me thou gave.
+
+      I will show forth thy name unto
+      those that my brethren are;
+      Amidst the congregätion
+      thy praise I will declare.
+
+      Praise ye the LORD, who do him fear;
+      him glorify all ye
+      The seed of Jacob: fear him all
+      that Isr'el's children be.
+
+      For he despised not nor abhorred
+      th' afflicted's misery;
+      Nor from him hid his face, but heard
+      when he to him did cry.
+
+      Within the congregation great
+      my praise shall be of thee;
+      My vows before them that him fear
+      shall be performed by me.
+
+      The meek shall eat, and shall be filled;
+      they also praise shall give
+      Unto the LORD that do him seek:
+      your heart shall ever live.
+

+      All kindreds of the nätions
+      to him shall homage do:
+
+      Because the kingdom to the LORD
+      doth appertain as his;
+      Likewise among the nätions

+        Here the debasement and exaltation of David, king of Israel, are
+        merely subservient to, and figurative of the debasement and exaltation
+        of Jesus Christ, our blessed Aijeleth Shahar, Hind of the
+        Morning<br/><br/><br/>I. In this deep debasement we find, (1.) Bitter,
+        but kindly and believing, complaints of God's withdrawment; attended
+        with earnest attempts of faith to quiet the complainer's soul under
+        it, drawn from the consideration of God's holiness and highness, and
+        his seasonable deliverance of his people in former times, when they
+        cried to him, ver. 1-5. (2.) Bitter complaints of men's reproaches and
+        contemptuous derision; attended with self encouragements, drawn from
+        former experience of God's early and seasonable care and friendship,
+        ver. 6-10. (3.) Bitter complaints of the number and rage of enemies,
+        attended with exquisite agonies of body and mind, and mingled with
+        earnest prayers for God's speedy supports, assistance, and powerful
+        deliverance, ver. 11-21.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing these, let me
+        behold the vileness, the criminality, the destructive influence of
+        sin! Let me behold the sovereignty of God, who not only scourgeth
+        every son whom he receiveth, but spared not his only begotten Son, but
+        delivered him up for us all! Behold, how he hates, how he punisheth
+        our sin! And what manner of love he bestowed upon us, that we might be
+        called the sons of God! Behold, how he commendeth his love unto us, in
+        that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us! And if Jesus,
+        with patience bore such desertion, reproach, and distress; let me, in
+        the firm faith that he did all for me, and that God is mine, and
+        maketh all things work for my good, study an unhampered resignation to
+        his will.<br/><br/><br/>II. By the typical exaltation of David, and
+        the increase, happiness, honour, and duration of his kingdom, we have
+        prefigured the glorious exaltation of our Redeemer; importing, that he
+        should have a church among men; that his Father should be glorified in
+        them as well as in him; that his true subjects should abound in
+        prayer, praise, spiritual comfort, and everlasting life; and that his
+        church should be enlarged with multitudes of both Jews and Gentiles,
+        and should, to his honour, and for his worship and service, continue
+        to all generations, ver. 22-31.<br><br/><br/>While I sing this, let me
+        trust, and rejoice in, and plead his promises, relative to myself and
+        his church. Let me ponder, whether I have heard his voice, shared his
+        saving pity, feasted on his spiritual provision, and worshipped him in
+        spirit, and in truth! And whether it is the desire of my soul to cause
+        his name to be remembered to all generations.

+        In singing this psalm, let me observe, (1.) What serious work prayer
+        is; what lifting up of soul, what directing of eyes to God, and fixing
+        them on him, must be in it! ver. 1-15. (2.) What mercies ought to be
+        prayed for Pardon of sin, ver. 6, 7-18; direction in duty, ver. 4-5;
+        familiar intimacy with God, ver. 10; deliverance from trouble, ver.
+        17-18; preservation from adversaries, ver. 20-21; and, in fine, safety
+        and deliverance to the church, ver. 22. (3.)What pleas are proper to
+        be used in prayer; as, the trust we have reposed in God, ver. 2-3,
+        5-21; our own divinely affected sincerity in the Lord's way, ver. 21;
+        our distress, and the malice of our enemies, ver. 2, 16-19; but
+        chiefly, the mercy that is in God, and the glory which redounds to his
+        name from his bestowing of new-covenant favours, ver. 6-11. (4.)
+        Strong encouragements to prayer ­ taken from the perfections of God's
+        nature; from his promises of instruction and direction; from the
+        fulness and grace of his covenant; and from his delight in allowing
+        men familiar intimacy and fellowship with himself, ver.
+        8-14.<br/><br/><br/>Let these things, my soul, be the object of thy
+        strictest care and attention, in all thy addresses to God.

+      success in sin doth get.
+
+      Do thou from anger cease, and wrath
+      see thou forsake also:
+      Fret not thyself in any wise,
+      that evil thou should'st do.
+
+      For those that evildoers are
+      shall be cut off and fall:
+      But those that wait upon the LORD
+      the earth inherit shall.
+
+      For yet a little while, and then
+      the wicked shall not be;
+      His place thou shalt consider well,
+      but it thou shalt not see.
+
+      But by inheritance the earth
+      the meek ones shall possess:
+      They also shall delight themselves
+      in an abundant peace.
+
+      The wicked plots against the just,
+      and at him whets his teeth:
+      The Lord shall laugh at him, because
+      his day he coming seeth.
+
+      The wicked have drawn out the sword,
+      and bent their bow, to slay
+      The poor and needy, and to kill
+      men of an upright way.
+
+      But their own sword, which they have drawn,
+      shall enter their own heart:
+      Their bows which they have bent shall break,
+      and into pieces part.
+
+      A little that a just man hath
+      is more and better far
+      Than is the wealth of many such
+      as lewd and wicked are.
+
+      For sinners' arms shall broken be;
+      but GOD the just sustains.
+      GOD knows the just man's days, and still
+      their heritage remains.
+
+      They shall not be ashamed when they
+      the evil time do see;
+      And when the days of famine are,
+      they satisfied shall be.
+
+      But wicked men, and foes of GOD,
+      as fat of lambs, decay;
+      They shall consume, yea, into smoke
+      they shall consume away.
+
+      The wicked borrows, but the same
+      again he doth not pay;
+      Whereas the righteous mercy shows,
+      and gives his own away.
+
+      For such as blessèd be of him
+      the earth inherit shall;
+      And they that cursèd are of him
+      shall be destroyèd all.
+
+      A good man's footsteps by the LORD
+      are orderèd aright;
+      And in the way wherein he walks
+      he greatly doth delight.
+
+      Although he fall, yet shall he not
+      be cast down utterly,
+      Because the LORD with his own hand
+      upholds him mightily.
+
+      I have been young, and now am old,
+      yet have I never seen
+      The just man left, nor that his seed
+      for bread have beggars been.
+
+      He's ever merciful, and lends:
+      his seed is blessed therefore.
+      Depart from evil, and do good,
+      and dwell for evermore.
+
+      For GOD loves judgment, and his saints
+      leaves not in any case;
+      They are kept ever; but cut off
+      shall be the sinner's face.
+
+      The just inherit shall the land,
+      and ever in it dwell:
+      The just man's mouth doth wisdom speak;
+      his tongue doth judgment tell.
+
+      In 's heart the law is of his God,
+      his steps slide not away.
+      The wicked man doth watch the just,
+      and seeketh him to slay.
+
+      Yet him the LORD will not forsake,
+      nor leave him in his hands:
+      The righteous will he not condemn,
+      when he in judgment stands.
+
+      Wait on the LORD, and keep his way,
+      and thee exalt shall he
+      Th' earth to inherit; when cut off
+      the wicked thou shalt see.
+
+      I saw the wicked great in power,
+      spread like a green bay-tree:
+      He passed, yea, was not; him I sought,
+      but found he could not be.
+
+      Mark thou the perfect, and behold
+      the man of uprightness,
+      Because that surely of this man
+      the latter end is peace.
+
+      But those men that transgressors are
+      shall be destroyed together;
+      The latter end of wicked men
+      shall be cut off for ever.
+
+      But the salvation of the just
+      is from the LORD above;
+      He in the time of their distress
+      their stay and strength doth prove.
+
+      The LORD shall help, and them deliver:
+      he shall them free and save
+      From wicked men, because in him
+      their confidence they have.

+    commentary:
+      john_brown: >
+        This psalm is wholly of the instructive kind. As the Mosaic system,
+        and the covenant between God and Israel, as his peculiar people,
+        promised remarkable temporal felicity to such as were obedient to the
+        law, and denounced temporal miseries against those that were impious
+        and profane; so the psalmist here cautions against stumbling at
+        particular providences, which might appear contrary to the tenour of
+        that covenant. Here are, (1.) Plain and express warnings against
+        fretfulness at the prosperity of the wicked, in their wickedness, ver.
+        1, 7-8; with the arguments and reasons enforcing the same, viz. that
+        the character of the wicked is ignominious, while that of the
+        righteous is honourable, ver. 12, 14, 21, 26, 30-32; that the wicked,
+        in the very height of their prosperity, are near to destruction, while
+        the righteous, even in their adversity, have special protection from
+        God, and shall never be ruined, ver. 2, 9-10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 28,
+        33-40; and that God hath special blessings in store for, and even in
+        this life manifests distinguished kindness to, the righteous and their
+        seed, ver. 11, 16, 18-19, 22-25, 28-29, 37. (2.) Here are proper and
+        effectual remedies to prevent sinful fretting at the prosperity of the
+        wicked, or troubles of the godly, viz. hoping in God as our Saviour;
+        delighting in God as our companion, friend and portion; following him
+        as our guide; departing from evil and doing good; waiting on the Lord,
+        and keeping his way, ver. 3-6, 27, 34.<br/><br/><br/>Be thou, my soul,
+        an accurate observer, of the matter and circumstances of every
+        providence. Carefully compare them one with another; and all with
+        perfections, covenant, and promises of God; in order that thou mayest
+        never be offended thereat.

+      In thy great indignätion,

+
+      For in me fast thine arrows stick,

+
+      This grief I have, because thy wrath

+      And in my bones there is no rest,
+      for sin that I have done.
+
+      Because gone up above mine head
+      my great transgressions be;
+      And, as a weighty burden, they
+      too heavy are for me.
+
+      My wounds do stink, and are corrupt;
+      my folly makes it so.
+      I troubled am, and much bowed down;
+      all day I mourning go.
+

+      so fills my loins with pain,

+

+      and broken am so sore,
+      That, through disquiet of my heart,
+      I have been made to roar.
+
+      O Lord, all that I do desire
+      is still before thine eye;
+      And of my heart the secret groans
+      not hidden are from thee.
+
+      My heart doth pant incessantly,
+      my strength doth quite decay;
+      As for mine eyes, their wonted light
+      is from me gone away.
+
+      My lovers and my friends do stand
+      at distance from my sore;
+      And those do stand aloof that were

+
+      Yea, they that seek my life lay snares:
+      who seek to do me wrong
+      Speak things mischievous, and deceits
+      imagine all day long.
+
+      But, as one deaf, that heareth not,
+      I suffered all to pass;
+      I as a dumb man did become,
+      whose mouth not opened was:
+
+      As one that hears not, in whose mouth
+      are no reproofs at all.
+      For, LORD, I hope in thee; my God,
+      thou'lt hear me when I call.
+
+      For I said, Hear me, lest they should
+      rejoice o'er me with pride;
+      And o'er me magnify themselves,
+      when as my foot doth slide.
+
+      For I am near to halt, my grief
+      is still before mine eye:
+      For I'll declare my sin, and grieve
+      for mine iniquity.
+
+      But yet mine en'mies lively are,
+      and strong are they beside;
+      And they that hate me wrongfully
+      are greatly multiplied.
+
+      And they for good that render ill,
+      as en'mies me withstood;
+      Yea, ev'n for this, because that I
+      do follow what is good.
+
+      Forsake me not, O LORD; my God,
+      far from me never be.
+      O Lord, thou my salvation art,
+      haste to give help to me.

+        This psalm appears to have been penned by David, under some remarkable

+        sickness of his body, and distress of his mind, ver. 6-10; of the

+        received from his enemies, who were spiteful, cruel, subtile, unjust,
+        ungrateful, impious, devilish, numerous and powerful, ver. 12, 20.
+        (2.) His remarkable patience and resignation under his troubles, ver.
+        13-15. (3.) His fervent supplications to God for the mitigation of his
+        troubles, ver. 1; and for comfort and support under, and speedy
+        deliverance from them, ver. 16, 21-22; attended with candid and

+        that he may deliver me.

+
+      With silence I as dumb became,

+        (4.) His hearty committing of his case and way to God, in the assured
+        and triumphant faith of his favour, ver. 10-13.<br/><br/><br/>While I

+        sakes became poor, that we through his poverty might be made rich ­
+        Jesus, who had not where to lay his head; Jesus whom his own disciple

+      Trust God, for I shall praise him yet,
+      his count'nance is mine aid.

+
+      At the noise of thy water-spouts

+
+      'Tis as a sword within my bones,

+        of Absalom had forced him from the sanctuary of God, and to take up
+        his lodging eastward of Jordan, 2 Sam. 15:13-19. We have in it, (1.)
+        Ardent longings after nearness to, and familiar intimacy with God, in
+        his public ordinances and sanctuary, ver. 1-2. (2.) Mournful
+        lamentations and bitter groanings on account of God's withdrawing his
+        comfortable smiles; of the want of the once-enjoyed ordinances of God,
+        and fellowship with his saints; of the depressing impressions of God's
+        wrath; and of his enemies' insolent upbraiding of him on account of
+        the departure and distance of his God, ver. 3-4, 6-7, 9-10. (3.)
+        Believing remembrance of God's former favours, ver. 6; and self-
+        encouraging hopes of future ones, ver. 5, 8, 11.<br/><br/><br/>Have I
+        experimentally understood all these things? My soul, let me charge
+        thee to beware of dissimulation with God, and of compassing him about
+        with lies, under pretence of praising him. Dare not to sing these
+        lines without inward, without ardent longings for the Lord; without
+        earnest claiming of him as thy own God, upon the foundation of his
+        new-covenant grant of himself to me in the gospel; without assured
+        hopes of his future, his everlasting kindness to me-ward.

+      O God, we with our ears have heard,
+      our fathers have us told,
+      What works thou in their days hadst done,
+      ev'n in the days of old.
+
+      Thy hand did drive the heathen out,
+      and plant them in their place;
+      Thou didst afflict the nätions,
+      but them thou didst increase.
+
+      For neither got their sword the land,
+      nor did their arm them save;
+      But thy right hand, arm, countenance;
+      for thou them favour gave.
+
+      Thou art my King: for Jacob, Lord,
+      deliv'rances command.
+      Through thee we shall push down our foes,
+      that do against us stand:
+
+      We, through thy name, shall tread down those
+      that ris'n against us have.
+      For in my bow I shall not trust,
+      nor shall my sword me save.
+
+      But from our foes thou hast us saved,
+      our haters put to shame.
+      In God we all the day do boast,
+      and ever praise thy name.
+
+      But now we are cast off by thee,
+      and us thou putt'st to shame;
+      And when our armies do go forth,
+      thou goest not with the same.
+
+      Thou mak'st us from the enemy,
+      faint-hearted, to turn back;
+      And they who hate us for themselves
+      our spoils away do take.
+
+      Like sheep for meat thou gavest us;
+      'mong heathen cast we be.
+      Thou didst for nought thy people sell;
+      their price enriched not thee.
+
+      Thou mak'st us a reproach to be
+      unto our neighbours near;
+      Derision and a scorn to them
+      that round about us are.
+
+      A by-word also thou dost us
+      among the heathen make;
+      The people, in contempt and spite,
+      at us their heads do shake.
+
+      Before me my confüsion
+      continually abides;
+      And of my bashful countenance
+      the shame me ever hides:
+
+      For voice of him that doth reproach,
+      and speaketh blasphemy;
+      By reason of th' avenging foe,
+      and cruel enemy.
+
+      All this is come on us, yet we
+      have not forgotten thee;
+      Nor falsely in thy covenant
+      behaved ourselves have we.
+
+      Back from thy way our heart not turned;
+      our steps no straying made;
+      Though us thou brak'st in dragons' place,
+      and cover'dst with death's shade.
+
+      If we God's name forgot, or stretched
+      to a strange god our hands,
+      Shall not God search this out? for he
+      heart's secrets understands.
+
+      Yea, for thy sake we're killed all day,
+      counted as slaughter-sheep.
+      Rise, Lord, cast us not ever off;
+      awake, why dost thou sleep?
+
+      O wherefore hidest thou thy face?
+      forgett'st our cause distressed,
+      And our oppression? For our soul
+      is to the dust down pressed:
+
+      Our belly also on the earth
+      fast cleaving, hold doth take.

+      God in the midst of her doth dwell;
+      nothing shall her remove:
+      The Lord to her an helper will,
+      and that right early, prove.
+
+      The heathen raged tumultuously,
+      the kingdoms movèd were:
+      The Lord God utterèd his voice,
+      the earth did melt for fear.
+
+      The LORD of hosts upon our side
+      doth constantly remain:
+      The God of Jacob's our refuge,
+      us safely to maintain.
+
+      Come, and behold what wondrous works
+      have by the LORD been wrought;
+      Come, see what desolätions
+      he on the earth hath brought.
+
+      Unto the ends of all the earth
+      wars into peace he turns:
+      The bow he breaks, the spear he cuts,
+      in fire the chariot burns.
+
+      Be still, and know that I am God;
+      among the heathen I
+      Will be exalted; I on earth
+      will be exalted high.
+
+      Our God, who is the LORD of hosts,
+      is still upon our side;
+      The God of Jacob our refuge
+      for ever will abide.

+        In this psalm, probably composed for celebrating some remarkable
+        victory, we have, (1.) Bold triumphs of faith in God himself, and the
+        mercies of the new covenant, amidst the most alarming danger and
+        distress which can be supposed, ver. 1-6. (2.) A thankful rehearsal of
+        the great things which God had wrought for the deliverance of his
+        people, and the destruction of their enemies, ver. 6-9. (3.) God's
+        heart-composing promise of promoting his own glory in every
+        providence; and faith's expectation of protection and safety, ver
+        10-11.<br/><br/><br>While I sing it, come my soul, encourage thyself
+        in Jehovah as thy God, and thy all. Come drink abundantly out of
+        Jesus' heart-gladdening river of life ­ his word, his blood, his
+        Spirit, his fulness, his love! And holding fast the beginning of thy
+        confidence unto the end, always give thanks.

+      Mount Zion stands most beautiful,

+

+        3-7. (3.) The people of God, particularly in Jerusalem, meditating

+        ceremonial worship, eject the Jews from his church, and establish a
+        more pure and spiritual form of worship under the gospel: or, in fine,
+        as a representation of the last judgment; in which Christ shall come,
+        to render to every man according to his deeds. Observe, (1.) The awful
+        appearance of God our Redeemer, in the flesh, in power, or in the
+        clouds; with the gathering of the people to him, ver. 1-6. (2.) An
+        engaging admonition to improve God's new-covenant grant of himself to
+        be our God, as an excitement to exchange legal ceremonies into prayer,
+        thanksgiving and holy obedience; or, at least, to give a remarkable
+        preference to the latter, ver. 7-15. (3.) A terrible charge of
+        hypocrisy, slander, contempt of God's word, and of atheistical

+        honourable pattern of an exact celebration of God's public worship,
+        ver. 13-16, 19.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing this penitential psalm, let

+        do injustice; and the corruption of their nature, with their malice,
+        falsehood, and obstinate untractableness, ver. 1-5. (2.) He prays that
+        God would disable them to perpetrate mischief; would defeat their
+        projects, and weaken their influence, ver. 6-8. (3.) He predicts their
+        ruin, as calculated to promote the comfort of the godly, and the
+        conviction of sinners, ver. 9-11.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing, let me

+

+      And let their loins be made by thee
+      continually to shake.
+
+      Thy fury pour thou out on them,
+      and indignätion;
+      And let thy wrathful anger, Lord,
+      fast hold take them upon.
+
+      All waste and desolate let be
+      their habitätion;
+      And in their tabernacles all
+      inhabitants be none.
+
+      Because him they do persecute,
+      whom thou didst smite before;
+      They talk unto the grief of those
+      whom thou hast wounded sore.
+
+      Add thou iniquity unto
+      their former wickedness;
+      And do not let them come at all
+      into thy righteousness.
+
+      Out of the book of life let them
+      be razed and blotted quite;
+      Among the just and rïghteous
+      let not their names be writ.
+
+      But now become exceeding poor
+      and sorrowful am I:
+      By thy salvation, O my God,
+      let me be set on high.
+
+      The name of God I with a song
+      most cheerfully will praise;
+      And I, in giving thanks to him,
+      his name shall highly raise.
+
+      This to the LORD a sacrifice
+      more gräcious shall prove
+      Than bullock, ox, or any beast
+      that hath both horn and hoof.
+
+      When this the humble men shall see,
+      it joy to them shall give:
+      O all ye that do seek the Lord,
+      your hearts shall ever live.
+
+      For GOD the poor hears, and will not
+      his prisoners contemn.
+      Let heav'n, and earth, and seas, him praise,
+      and all that move in them.
+
+      For God will Judah's cities build,
+      and he will Zion save,
+      That they may dwell therein, and it
+      in sure possession have.
+
+      And they that are his servants' seed

+      that love his blessèd name.

+        age; and might have his numerous, powerful, and crafty enemies,
+        confounded with shame and perplexity, ver. 1-13, 18. (3.) His

+        particularly that God would never forsake, but revive him; that he
+        would increase his honour and comfort, and put his enemies to shame:
+        Along with which he resolves, with admiring rapture, to extol God's
+        righteousness and salvation, and his new-covenant relation to himself,
+        and to Israel, ver. 14-24.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing, let me be

+        to real religion, and how comfortable to his faithful subjects his

+        increase, by means of his gospel truth preached; and how permanent and

+      their image shalt despise.
+
+      Thus grievèd was my heart in me,
+      and me my reins oppressed:
+      So rude was I, and ignorant,
+      and in thy sight a beast.
+
+      Nevertheless continually,
+      O Lord, I am with thee:
+      Thou dost me hold by my right hand,
+      and still upholdest me.
+
+      Thou, with thy counsel, while I live,
+      wilt me conduct and guide;
+      And to thy glory afterward
+      receive me to abide.
+
+      Whom have I in the heavens high
+      but thee, O Lord, alone?
+      And in the earth whom I desire
+      besides thee there is none.
+
+      My flesh and heart doth faint and fail,
+      but God doth fail me never:
+      For of my heart God is the strength
+      and pörtion for ever.
+
+      For, lo, they that are far from thee
+      for ever perish shall;
+      Them that a whoring from thee go
+      thou hast destroyèd all.
+
+      But surely it is good for me
+      that I draw near to God:
+      In GOD I trust, that all thy works
+      I may declare abroad.

+    commentary:
+      john_brown: >
+        This psalm, and the ten following, are called Psalms of Asaph; but
+        whether because he composed most of them, or because he led the music
+        in singing them, is not altogether certain. Here we have, (1.) The
+        great foundation of all religion, viz. the goodness of God to his
+        people, strongly asserted, ver. 1. (2.) The psalmist's faith fearfully
+        shaken by the consideration of the freedom, prosperity, plenty, and
+        peaceful-like death of the wicked; which rendered them proud,
+        oppressive, insolent, atheistical, and profane; while himself was in a
+        manner consigned to nothing but trouble, ver. 2-13. (3.) The
+        temptation, when it had reduced him to the brink of atheism, is
+        broken, by a discovery of the connected purposes and providences of
+        God in his word and ordinances, ver. 14-20. (4.) His improvement of
+        his fall and recovery, to promote a deep sense of his own meanness,
+        ignorance, and folly; a complete dependence on God as his guide; a
+        cleaving to him as his portion, infinitely preferable to every thing
+        else; without whom one is necessarily miserable, and in the enjoyment
+        of whom he is assured of happiness, and excited to praise and
+        thanksgiving, ver. 21-28.<br/><br/><br/>While I sing, let me remember
+        my own wickedness and folly; and let me receive instruction in duty.
+        Let me cleave to God as my portion, and resolve to draw my light and
+        comfort from the oracles of his mouth, and ordinances of his grace.
