"So likewise the Father is i Lord, the Son is LOrd) * and the i Ho-ly Ghost is Lord. " "As yet there T ire not three lords, * i L ") but One Lord.

"For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge Ev'ry Person by Him- i self to be God and Lord, * so are we forbidden by Cath'Iic religion to say, 'There be T three gods, or three lords.'

"The i Fath-er is Made of nope; * neither Created T nor Be-got-ten.

o Lord, set a T law-giv-er o-ver them; * let the heathen T know that they are but men. Why, 0 Lord, hast Thou gone to T stand a-far Off; * why dost Thou overlook

us in times of well-being and i in af-flic-tions? . I ~

When the ungodly man is arrogant, the poor man T burn-eth with-in; * they are

caught in the T coun-sels which they de-vise. I

For the sinne!t-praiseth himself ill the i lusts of his soUl; * and the unrighteous man likewise i bless-eth him-self there-in.

The sinner T hath pro-vok'd the Lord; * according to the magnitude of His

T wrath, he car-eth not. ...

God is T not be-fore him * profane are his w~ays in i ev-'ry sea-son.

_ Thy judgments are re- i mov-ed from his sight; * over all his enemies shall he

i gain do-min-ion. _ ,

For he i sald in his heart: * "I shall not be shaken; from generation to

generation shall i I be with-out harm." _ ~

With cursing is his mouth filled, and with i bit-ter-ness and de-ceil; * under

his tongue i are toil and trav-ail. . ,

He sltteth in ambush with the rich in i se-cret pJa-ces, * that he may i slay the in-no-cent.

_ His eyes are set up- T on the poor man; * he lieth in wait in a secret place like a

T ll -on in his den.

He lieth in walt tq seize up- i on the poor man, * to seize upon the poor man when he T draw-eth him in.

In his snare will he i hum-ble gaining dominion i o-ver the poor.

For he said in his heart: T "God hath for-got-ten; * He hath turned away His

Face, that He might T not see un-to the end." , ~

Arise, 0 Lord My God, let Thy i Hand be Lift-ed high; * forget not Thy T pau-pers to the end.

Why hath the ungodly i one pro-vo-ked God? * For he hath said in his heart:

"For there is One Person of the Father, An- i oth-er of the Son, * and Another

T Of the Ho-ly Ghost. ,

_ "But the God-Head of the Father, of the Son, and of the Ho-ly T Ghost is All

One; * the Glory Equal, the Mlljes- i ty Co-E-ter-nal.

"Such as the Fath-er T is, Such isthe Son, '* and i Such is the He-ly G,host.

"The Father Uncreate, i the Son Un-cre-ate, * and the T Ho-ly Ghost Uri-cre-ate. "The Father Incomprehensible, the Son In- i com-pre-hen-sib-le, * and the

Holy Ghost i In-com-pre-hen-slb-le, - r

"The Father Eternal, the i Son E-ter-nal, * and the Holy i Ghost E-ter-nal.

"As also there are not _three incomprehensibles, nor T three -un-cre-a-ted, * but

One Incomprehensible, and T One Un-cre-a-ted. , ,

"So Jikewise"the Father is Almighty, the,i Son_A1-migh-ty, *_and the H9Iy i GhOst Al-migh--tJ. "As yet there are not i three al-migh-ties, * but i One' Al-migh-ty.

"So the Father is T God, the Son is God, * and, the T Ho-ly Ghost is God. "As yet they i are not thf'ee gods, * i (-') but One God.

"So likewise the Father is T Lord, the Son is LOrd) * and the i Ho-ly Ghost is Lord. "As yet there T are not three lords, * i (-") but One Lord. 'I "For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge Ev'ry ~

Person by Him- i self to be God and Lord} * so are we forbidden by Cath'Iic religion to say, 'There be i three gods, or three lords.' I "The i Fath-er is Made of nope;-:t: neither Created T nor Be-got-ten;

"The Son is of the T Fath-er A-lone; * not Made, nor Created, T but Be-gat-ten. "The Ho-Iy Ghost is i of the Fath-er; * neither Made, nor Created, nor

Begotten, T but Pro-ceed-ing. _

"So there is One Father, not three fath-ers; t i One Son, not three sons; * One

Holy i Ghost, not three ho-Iy ghosts. .

"And in This Trinity None is afore, or after oth-er; t None is Greater, or, i Less than An-oth-er; * but the Whole Three Persons are Co-Eternal together, 1 and Co-E-qual.

"So that in_all things, as is .. a-fore-said, t the Unit- i y in Trin-it-y, '* and the

Trinity in Unity l' istQ be Wor-shipp'd. _,'

"He therefore''that i would be sa-ved * must thus i think of the Trin-it-y." »

Furthermore, it is necessary to ever- i las;-ting sal-va-tion :I: that he also believe

rightly the Incarnation of T Our Lord Je-sus Christ. '

For the Orthodox Faith is this: "That we believe and con-fess t that Our Lord Jesus iChrist, the Son of God, :I: T (-') is God and Man;

"God, of the Substance of the Fath-ervBe- T got-ten be-fore the worlds; * and

Father, as i Touch-Ing His Man-hood. ' . ,,,

"Who, although T He be God and Man, :I: yet He is T not Two, but One Christ; "One; ,not by conversion of the i God-head in-to Flesh, * but by Taking of the T Man-hood in-to God;

"One altogether; not by con- T fu-sion of ~ub-stance, * but by U-nit- T y oj Per-sgn. "For, as the Reasonable Soul and i Flesh is One Min, ~ so God and l' Man is One Christ; _ "Who suffered for our salvation, descended T in-to Ha-des, * rose again the T third day from the dead.

, "He ascended into Heaven; He sitteth on the Right Hand of the Fath-er, i God Al-migh-ty: * from whence He shall corne to i judge jhe quick and the d_ead.

"At Whose Coming all men shall rise a- i gain with their bod-ies, * and shall

"And they that have done good shall ~o into l' Life Ev-er-Ias-tmg, * and they that have done evil into ever+T las-ting fi-re.'
