And now Lord be mindfull of me, take not reuengement of my sinnes, remem∣ber not mine offences, neither the offences of my fa∣thers, because we haue not obeied thy precepts. Giue me an hart of vnderstanding, and set thy feare alwaies Page  300 before mine eies, that I may be obedient in word, deed and thought, to all that is thy will.
