12 Behold! The wicked bend their bow,… 2:44

13 But God, who hears the suff'ring pow'r,… 2:22
      …and their oppression knows, will soon arise and give them rest in spite of all their foes.
14 Snares, fire and brimstone on their heads… 1:36
      …shall in one tempest show'r: this dreaful mixture his revenge into their cup shall pour.
15 The righteous Lord will righteous deeds… 2:05
      …with signal favour grace, and to the upright man disclose the brightness of his face.

21 Against thee only have I sinned,… 1:36

22 Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness… 2:16
