1 Beholde, the kinge shal gouerne after ye rule of rightuousnes, and ye princes shal rule acordinge to the balaunce of equite. 2 He shalbe vnto me, as a defence for the wynde, and as a refuge for the tempest, like as a ryuer of water in a thurstie place, and ye schadowe of a greate rock in a drie lode. 3 The eyes of the seinge shall not be dymme, and the eares of them that heare, shal take diliget hede. 4 The hert of the vnwise, shal attayne to knowlege, and the vnparfite tuge shal speake planely and distinctly. 5 Then shal the nygarde be no more called gentle, ner the churle lyberall. 6 But the churle wil be churlishly mynded, and his hert wil worke euell and playe the ypocrite, and ymagyn abhominacios agaynst God, to make the hungrie leane, and to withholde drinke from the thurstie: 7 These are the perlous weapons of the cuvetous, these be his shameful councels: that he maye begyle the poore with disceatful workes, yee euen there as he shulde geue sentence with the poore. 8 But the liberall person ymagineth honest thinges, and commeth vp with honesty.
