Why does it have strange spelling?


1 Dauid prayeth against Doeg, 3 reproueth his tongue, 5 complaineth of his necessary conuersation with the wicked.

1 [A song of degrees.] In my distresse I cried vnto the Lord: and hee heard me.

2 Deliuer my soule, O Lord, from lying lips: and from a deceitfull tongue.

The godlies safetie.

3 What shall be giuen vnto thee? or what shalbe done vnto thee, thou false tongue?3

4 Sharpe arrowes of the mightie: with coales of iuniper.4

5 Woe is me, that I soiourne in Mesech: that I dwell in the tents of Kedar.

6 My soule hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for warre.7
