David, complaining to God of former judgment,
Psalms 60:1 O God, thou yt hast cast vs out and scatred vs abrode, thou yt hast bene so sore displeased at vs, coforte vs agayne. Psalms 60:2 Thou yt hast remoued the lode & deuyded it, heale the sores therof, for it shaketh. Psalms 60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people heuy thinges, thou hast geuen vs a drynke off wyne, yt we slobre withall.
