add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

29 And protestedst among them that thou mightest bring them againe vnto thy Lawe: but they behaued them selues proudely, and hearkened not vnto thy commandements, but sinned against thy iudgements ( which a man should doe and liue in them) and pulled away the shoulder, and were stiffenecked, and woulde not heare.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 Yet thou diddest forbeare them many yeeres, and protestedst among them by thy Spirite, euen by the hande of thy Prophets, but they woulde not heare: therefore gauest thou them into the hande of the people of the lands.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

36 Beholde, we are seruants this day, and the lande that thou gauest vnto our fathers, to eate the fruite thereof, and the goodnesse thereof, beholde, we are seruants therein.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

37 And it yeeldeth much fruit vnto the kings whom thou hast set ouer vs, because of our sinnes: and they haue dominion ouer our bodyes and ouer our cattell at their pleasure, and we are in great affliction.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

38 Now because of all this we make a sure couenant, and write it, and our princes, our Leuites and our Priestes seale vnto it.
