Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Godlinesse hath the promises of this life, 4 And of the life to come. 10 The prosperitie of the godly, shalbe an eye-sore to the wicked
Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his Commaundements.1
His seed shall bee mightie vpon earth: the generation of the vpright shalbe blessed.
Wealth and riches shalbe in his house: and his righteousnesse endureth for euer.
Unto the vpright there ariseth light in the darknesse: hee is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
A good man sheweth fauour and lendeth: he will guide his affaires with discretion.5
Surely he shall not be moued for euer: the righteous shalbe in euerlasting remembrance.
He shall not be afraid of euill tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is established, hee shall not be afraid, vntill he see his desire vpon his enemies.
He hath dispersed, he hath giuen to the poore: his righteousnesse endureth for euer; his horne shalbe exalted with honour.9
The wicked shall see it, and be grieued; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
