The people of the Lord pray for the Second Coming and for the salvation that will then be theirs.
2 As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may atremble at thy presence!
5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy aface from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.
9 ¶ Be not wroth very sore, O Lord, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy apeople.
10 Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
12 Wilt thou arefrain thyself for these things, O Lord? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?
