Murder was thus called in to make an end of the elect people, but it was in vain. The Lord of Israel was greater than the King of Egypt, and proved more than a match for all his plots and plans.
What though to make our numbers less
Our foes their wisdom try,
The more our enemies oppress,
The more we multiply.
Then let the world forbear its rage,
Nor put the church in fear,
Israel must live through every age
And be th’ Almighty’s care.
