A65249 Lamentation over England from a true sight, and suffering sense, of the lamentable wickedness of such rulers, priests, and people, that are erred, and strayed from the way of God, and follow too much the devices and desires of their own hearts, offending against his holy laws ... : whereby all persecutors may (in pity to their souls) truly consider what way they are in, and whether it leads, and whose work they are doing, and what the Scripture saith will be the reward of oppression and cruelty / by M.W. Watkins, Morgan, fl. 1653-1670. 1664 (1664) Wing W1066; ESTC R38958 45,267 54

in_o this_o i_o must_v needs_o say_v you_o speak_v the_o truth_n in_o the_o presence_n of_o god_n but_o if_o you_o have_v do_v the_o thing_n you_o leave_v undo_v and_o aught_o to_o have_v do_v than_o
