“For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thy selfe to the search of their fathers.”
King James Version (KJV)
5. If thou wouldest seeke vnto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almightie: 6. If thou wert pure and vpright, surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousnes prosperous. 7. Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. 8. For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thy selfe to the search of their fathers. 9. (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our dayes vpon earth are a shadow.) 10. Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, & vtter words out of their heart? 11. Can the rush growe vp without myre? can the flag growe without water?
