God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran; his GLORY covered the Heavens, and the Earth was full of his Praise, and his Brightness was as the Light ; he had Horns coming out of his Hand, and there was the hiding of his Power : Beforc him went the Pestilence, and burning Coals went forth at his Feer. He ftuod and measured the Earth; he beheld, and drove asunder the Nations, and the everlasting Mountains were scattered, the perpetual Hills did bow ; his Ways are everlasting. ver. 10, Quc. The Mountains faw thee, and they trembled; the Overflowing of the Water passed by, the Deep uttered his Voice, and lift up his Hands on high: The Sun and Moon stood still in their Habitation. At the Light of thine Arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering Spear. Thou didst march through the Land in Indignation, thou didit thresh the Heathen in Anger. Thou wenrest forth for the SalvatION of thy People, even for Salvation with thine Anoinçcd; thou wounded/t the Head out of the House of the Wicked, by discovering the Foundation unto the Neck. When I heard, my Belly trembled, my Lips quivered at the Voice; Rottenness entred into my Bones, and I trembled in my felf, that I might rest in the Day of Trouble. Rev. VI. 12,14,15,16. There was a great EARTHQUAKE, and every Mountain and Inand were moved out of their Places : And the Kings of the Earth, Cuc. said to the Mountains and Rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the Face of him that sittech on the Throne, and from the Wrath of the Lamb.
