Now these be the lastwords of David.David the son of Jessesaid , and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweetpsalmist of Israel,said ,
The Spirit of the LORDspake by me, and his word was in my tongue.3
The God of Israelsaid , the Rock of Israelspake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just,ruling in the fear of God.4
And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sunriseth , even a morningwithoutclouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.5
Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlastingcovenant,ordered in all things, and sure : for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow .
But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away , because they cannot be taken with hands:7
But the man that shall touch them must be fenceda with iron and the staff of a spear; and they shall be utterlyburned with fire in the same place .
