unawares. Let your conversation be without covetous
ness ; And be content with such things as ye have : For He hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee. I am the Lord your God. If a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, Ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you Shall be unto you as one born among you, And thou shalt love him as thyself.
Heb. xiii. 1–5; Lev. xix. 33.
269. Do as you would be done by. Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his
sheep go astray, And hide thyself from them : And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, Or if thou know him not, Thou shalt bring it unto thine own house,
And it shall be with thee until thy brother
seek after it, And thou shalt restore it to him again. So shalt thou do with all lost thing of thy
brother's, Which he hath lost, and thou hast found. Thou mayest not hide thyself.
Deut. xxii. 1-4. 270. Overcome Evil with Good. IF thou meet thine enemy's ox or bis ass
going astray, Thou shalt surely bring it back to him
again. If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee Lying under his burden, And wouldst forbear to help him, Thou shalt surely help with him. Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, And let not thine heart be glad when he
stumbleth: Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him, And he turn away his wrath from him. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread
to eat; And if he be thirsty, give him water to drink.
Ex. xxiii. 4; Prov. xxiv. 17 ; xxv. 21. 271. Pity the Poor, and lend to God. (7's.)

Whilst with comforts I abound,

Neither shalt thou gather every grape of
thy vineyard; Thou shalt leave them for the poor and the
stranger : I am the Lord your God.
James ii. 15—26; Levit. xix. 9. 273. With the MercifulGodis Merciful.(7’s.) God our Comforter above, Slow to punish, grieved at woe, Full of pity, full of love, Mercy sheds on all below. From his tender mercy mild, All our hopes of heaven begin ; Can a cruel, heartless child, Hope a place in heaven to win ? Let compassion rule your mind, Never, never, hurt in vain ! Let the poor dumb creatures find That you shrink from giving pain. Though they may be slain for food, Or, if hurtful, be destroyed, Never kill, except for good;
Every needless pang avoid. 274. A golden Chain of Texts. The earth is full of the mercy of the Lord. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not

beast, But the tender mercies of the wicked are
cruel. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.
