6 They that are in the Flesh cannot please God. If ye forsake the Lord, he will cast you off for ever: he will love you no more. with the wicked every Day: The foolish shall not stand in his Sight : He hateth all Workers of Iniquity.
c The Lord is far from the wicked. Their Iniquities have separated between them and their God; and their Sins have hid his Face from them, that he will not hear. And, woe unto them (faith the Lord) when I depart from them.
d As the wicked do not like to retain God is their knowledge, God giveth them over to a reprobate Mind, to do those things which are not convenient. For this Cause, also, God shall send them strong Delufion, that they should believe a Lie; that they all may be damned that believe not the Truth, but have Pleasure in Unrighteousness.
c The wicked are reserved to the Day of Deftruction : They shall be brought forth, to the Day of Wrath. They shall be turned into Hell, where their Worm dieth not, and the Fire is not quenched; but the Wrath of God abideth on them.

The Day of the Lord cometh with Wrath, and fierce Anger: And he will punish the World for their Evil, and the wicked for their Iniquity. He will cause the Arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the Haughtiness of the terrible: neither shall any Atrengthen himself in the Iniquity of his Life. The Day of the wicked mall come, when their Iniquity shall have an end: And the Lord shall take from them their Strength, the Joy of their Glory, the Desire of their Eyes, and that whereupon they set their Minds. Hørror also shall cover them, and Shame shall be upon all Faces; and Pangs and Sorows Dhall take take hold of them.

a And in those Days Thall Men seek Death, and shall not find it: and shall desire to die, and Death shall flee from them.
b And the Kings of the Earth, and the great Men, and the rich Men, and the chief Captains, and the mighty Men, mall say to the Mountains and Rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the Face of him that fitteth on the Throne, and from the Wrath of the Lamb: For the great Day of his Wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand ?
c Then the unbelieving, and the abominable, and Murtherers, and Whoremongers, and Idolaters, and Liars, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, shall be cast into the Lake of Fire: where they shall be tormented with Fire and Brimstone; and they have no Rest Day nor Night; and the Smoke of their Torment ascendeth up for ever and ever.
d Now consider this, ye that forget God; left Judgment and Justice take hold on you, and there be none to deliver: For it is a fearful thing to fall into the Hands of the living God.
e Rejoice, O young Man, in thy Youth, and let thy Heart chear thee in the Days of thy Youth, and walk in the Ways of thy Heart, and in the Sight of thine Eyes; but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into Judgment.

Your Riches are corrupted; your Gold and Silver is cankered, and the Rust of them shall be a Witness against you : ye have heaped Treasure together for the last Days; ye have nourished your Hearts, as in a Day of Slaughter.
6 Hear the Word of the Lord, ye scornful Men: Because ye have said, We have made a Covenant with Death, and with Hell are we at Agreement: when the over-flowing Scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made Lies our Refuge, and under Fallhood have we bid our selves : Tlierefore thus faith the Lord God; your Covenant with Death fhall be disannulled, and your Agreement with Hell Thall not stand; when the over-flowing Scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down

Day of Wrath, and Revelation of the righteous
• Behold the Day, behold it is come; the Day of Trouble is near. The Lord will shortly pour out his Fury upon thee, and accomplish his Anger upon thee : And he will judge thee according to thy Ways, and will recompense thee for: all thine Abominations.
b Let now the Aftrologers, the Star-gazers, the monthly Prognofticators, stand up, and save thee from those things that shall come upon thee, Behold, they shall be as Stubble; the Fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the Power of the Flame.
• All the Sinners shall die which-fay, The Evil fhall not overtake, nor prevent us.
Deftruetion cometh, and they shall seek Peace, and there shall be none. He that fleeth of them thall Bot flee away; and he that efcapeth of them fhall not be delivered.
d Their Silver and their Gold fhall not be able to deliver them in the Day of the Wrath of the Lord : And then they thall know that God is the Lord, and that he hath not said in vain, That be would do this Evil unto them.
Let us therefore lay these things to our Heart, and remember, that the Pleasures of Sin are but for a Season, and that it will be Bitterness in the Jatter end: And, what is a Man profited, if he thall gain the whole world, and lofe his own Soul ? or, What shall a Man give in exchange for his Soul ?
