     Love * righteousnesse, yee that that be judges of the earth: think of the Lord with a good (heart) and in simplicity of heart seek him. * 1 King. 3.3; Esay. 56.1. 13. 4.

    1 Kings 3:3  And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.

    Isaiah 56:1  Thus saith the Lord. Keep ye judgement, and doe justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

    56:1  As one whom his mother comforted, so will I comfort you: and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

    56:4  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer, when I spoke they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

    2. For he will be found of them that tempt him not: and showed himself unto such as doe not *distrust him.* Duet. 4. 29. 2Chr. 

    *Deut. 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart, and with all thy soul.

    2 Chron. 1:1  And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him, & magnified him exceedingly.

    3. For forward thoughts separate from God: and his power when it is tried, Â…reprooveth the unwise. Â…Or, maketh manifest.

    4. For into a malicious soul wisedome shall not enter: nor dwell in the body that is subject unto sin.

    5. *For the holy spirit of discipline will flee deceit, & remove from thoughts that are without understanding: and will not abide when righteous: and will not Â…abide when unrighteousness commeth in. * Jer. 4.22. Â…Or, is rebuked, or showed it self.

    Jer. 4:22  For my people is foolish, they have not known me, they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to doe evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

    6. For Wisdome is a *loving spirit: and will not aquite a blasphemer of his Â…words: for God is witnesse of his reins, and a true beholder of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue. *Gal. 5:22

    Gal. 5:22  But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.Â…Or, lips.

    7. For the spirit of the Lord filleth the world: and that which Â…contained all things hath knowledge of the voice. Â…Or, uphold

    8. Therefore he that speaketh unrighteous things, cannot be hid: neither shall vengeance, when it punished. Passed by him.

    9. For inquisition shall be made into the counsels of the ungodly: and the sound of his words, shall come unto the Lord, for the Â…manifestation of his wicked deeds. Â…Or, reproving

    10. For the ear of jealousies heareth al things: and the noise of murmurings is not hid.

    11. Therefore beware of murmuring, which is unprofitable, and refrain your tongue from backbiting: for there is no word so secret that shall go for naught: and the mouth that Â…belieth, slayed the soul. Â…Or, slandered.

    12. Seek not death in error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction, with the works of your hands.

    13. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in destruction of the living.

    14. For he created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful: and there is no poison of destruction in them: nor the kingdom of death upon the earth.

    15. For righteousnesse is immortal.

    16. But ungodly men with their works, and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to naught, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.
