"Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." Rom 3:27-28
Excerpt (Hymn) From
Psalm 35:1. 1-9. First Part.
1 Now plead my cause, almighty God,
2 Draw out thy spear and stop their way,
3 They plant their snares to catch my feet,
4 Let fogs and darkness hide their way,
5 They fly like chaff before the wind,
6 They love the road that leads to hell;
7 But if thou hast a chosen few
8 Then will I raise my tuneful voice
Psalm 35:2. 12-14. Second Part.
1 Behold the love, the generous love
2 When they are sick his soul complains,
3 How did his flowing tears condole
4 They groan'd; and curs'd him on their bed,
5 O glorious type of heavenly grace!
6 He, the true David, Israel's king,
Hymn by Isaac Watts, excerpted from "The Psalms of David, Imitated in the Language of the New Testament, and Applied to the Christian State and Worship"
"Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt. Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them. For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul. Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall. And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation. All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?" Psa 35:1-10 KJV
