7For a manifest reproof of that commandment, whereby the infants were slain, thou gavest unto them abundance of water by a means which they hoped not for: 8Declaring by that thirst then how thou hadst punished their adversaries. 9For when they were tried albeit but in mercy chastised, they knew how the ungodly were judged in wrath and tormented, thirsting in another manner than the just. 10For these thou didst admonish and try, as a father: but the other, as a severe king, thou didst condemn and punish.11Whether they were absent or present, they were vexed alike. 12For a double grief came upon them, and a groaning for the remembrance of things past. 13For when they heard by their own punishments the other to be benefited, they had some feeling of the Lord.
