As

layes

wait

every

to

take him,

and

purfues

him from

place

;

but

Da-

feet

were made

like Hinds feet

in

expedition

to

avoid

his

enemy

whether Said

At

cha-

him

as

and he

efcapes

them

all

though narrowly and

flrangely.

he

went through

all,

who

having ftrong

purpofe yet had no

power to

take him,

the time was

come

they

among

but comming to him (as

Saul,

meffengers

to

David)

and
