a When my Soul fainteth within me, I will remember the Lord; what time I am afraid, I will trust in him.

The Lord is my Light, and my Salvation, whom fhall I fear? The Lord is the Strength of my Life, of whom shall I be afraid? In God I have put my truft, I will not fear what Flesh can do unto me.

He also fhall be my Salvation: tho" he flay me, yet will I trust in him.

d God is our Refuge and Strength; therefore will we not fear, tho' the Earth be removed, and tho' the Mountains be carried into the midft of the Sea.

e Therefore we both labour, and fuffer Reproach, because we truft in the living God, who is the Saviour of all Men, especially of thofe that believe. And therefore we endure Affliction, as feeing him that is invifible.

He whofe Heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord, fhall not be afraid of evil Tidings, but in. Quietness and Confidence fhall be his Strength. He hath fet the Lord always before him, and because the Lord is. at his right Hand, he fhall not be moved..

g. Be not moved away from the Hope of the Gospel, which ye have heard: But be ye Followers of them, who through Faith and Patience inherit the Promifes. Behold the Husband-man waiteth for the precious Fruit of the Earth, and

hath long Patience for it, until he receive the early and latter Rain: Be ye also patient, and Aablish your Hearts, for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

a All the Days of my appointed Time will I wait, till my Change come.

b We have the Sentence of Death in our selves, that we should not truft in our felves, but in God, which raiseth the dead.

Lean not unto thine own Understanding. He that trufteth in his own Heart is a Fool.

d The rich Man's Wealth is his ftrong City, and as a high Wall in his own Conceit: He maketh Gold his Hope, he faith to the fine Gold, thou art my Confidence. But he that trusteth in his Riches fhall fall; for Riches profit not in the Day of Wrath.

e Truft ye not in a Friend; put ye not Confidence in a Guide, but look unto the Lord; and wait for the God of your Salvation.

f Put not your Truft in Princes, nor in the Son of Man, in whom there is no Help: For it is better to trust in the Lord, than to put Confidence in Man: It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put Confidence in Princes.

g Curfed is the Man that trusteth in Man, and maketh Flefh his Arm, and whofe Heart departeth from the Lord. But happy is he, whofe Hope is in the Lord his God, who made Heaven and Earth. For it is good that a Man fhould both hope, and quietly wait for the Salvation of the Lord.
