And to their wandering mind; Their own conceits they follow'd still,
Their own devices blind. 13 O that my people would be wise,
To serve me all their days, And O that Ifrael would advise
To walk my righteous ways.
That now so proudly rise,
That are their enemies.
To bow to him and bend,
Their time should have no end.

With flower of finest wheat, And satisfy them from the rock
With honey for their meat.
