Page 307 - For the Lord GOD will help me ; therefore shall I not be confounded : therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
Page 302 - Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth : Both young men, and maidens; old men and children: let them praise the name of the Lord: For his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
