Or else praie thus.

HAue mercie vpon mee, O God, and pardon the wicked deeds which my hands haue committed. Wash my soule with the holie fountaine or well, which I beleeue did flow from thy hart, and naked side; and sanc∣tifie and purifie not onlie my hands and face from filth; but my hart, soule, and conscience also, from all contagion of sinne and iniquitie, that I may be pure both in bodie and soule, and serue thee in holinesse and puritie, all the daies of my life, So be it.

Though I wash my selfe with snowe water, and purge my hands most cleane; yet shalt thou plunge me in the pit, and mine owne cloths shall make mee filthie.

Iob. 9, verse, 30.
