He will not at all acquit the Wicked: he will by no means clear the Guilty.

c The Soul that sinneth it shall dye. The Son fhall not bear the Iniquity of the Father, neither shall the Father bear the Iniquity of the Son. The Righteousness of the Righteous shall be upon him, and the Wickedness of the Wicked shall be upon him.

d The Servant which knew his Lord's Will, and did not according to it, shall be beaten with many Stripes; but he that knew it not, and did things worthy of Stripes, fhall be beaten with few Stripes. For 'unto whomsoever inuch is given, of him thall much be required.

e It shall be more tolerable in the Day of Judgment for some, than for others; and they that have been more corrupted in all their ways than others shall receive greater Damnation.

f What hall we say then? Is God unrighteous that taketh Vengeance:? God forbid; For then how fhall God judge the World? Surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty. pervert Judgment.

c His-Covenant will he not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of his Lips.

d Our Labour shall not be in vain in the Lord : For, he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forfake thee.

a. God is Pure, and every word of God is pure.

6 Holy and Reverend is his Name.

• The Lord is Righteous in all his Ways; and Holy in all his Works.

d 'The Law of God is Holy, and his Commandments are Holy, and Just, and Good.

e. Thou only, O Lord, art Holy.

f There is none Holy as the Lord. Who is like unto thee, O Lord, glorious in Holiness ?

8 Behold, he putteth no: Trust in his Saints; yea the Heavens are not clean in his Sight.,

h Far be it from God, that he should do Wicka edness, and from the Almighty, that he should commit Iniquity. God cannot be tempted with Evil, neither tempteth he any Man.

i Why say ye, every one that doth Evil is good in the fight of the Lord, and he delights eth in them? He is not a God, that hath Pleasure in Wickedness, neither thall Evil dwell with him. He is of purer Eyes, than to behold Evil; and cannot look on Iniquity; the foolish shall not stand in his fight, he hateth all workers of Iniquity.

k The Way of the Wicked, the Thoughts of the Wicked, the Sacrifice and Prayer of the Wicked are an Abomination to the Lord.

a The Righteous Lord loveth Righteousness; His Countenance doth behold the Upright. The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him: But to all those that work Wickedness, he faith, Depart from me, I know you not.

Surely, God will not hear Vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it: but the Prayer of the Upright is his Delight.

GOD is INCOMPREHENSIBL E.

c Behold, God is Great, and we know him not; touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out. His Greatness is unsearchable.

d Can we, by Searching, find out God ? can we find out the Almighty uuto Perfection ? Such Knowledge is too wonderful for us : It is high, we cannot attain unto it. And when we talk of him, we cannot order our Speech, by rcason of Darkness.

e What Man knoweth the things of a Man, save the Spirit of a Man, which is in him ? even so the things of God knoweth no Man, but the Spirit of God.

Verily, O God, thou art a God that hideft thy self: dwelling in the Light, which no Man can approach unto.

How unsearchable are his Judgments, and his Ways past finding out? His Judgments are a great Deep.

e Many, O Lord, are thy wonderful Works which thou hast done ; they cannot be reckoned up, in order, unto thee : If we would declare, and speak of them, they are more than can be numbred.

f God hath done great things, and unsearchable ; marvellous things, past finding out. Great things doth he, which we cannot comprehend.
