Page 198 - Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD ; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
Page 198 - I am gone like the shadow when it declineth : I am tossed up and down as the locust.
Page 197 - As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones. Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
Page 197 - Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
