The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1The church, complaining of her small number,
3and the general corruption,
5puts her confidence not in man, but in God.
8She triumphs over her enemies.
14She prays to God.
15God comforts her by promises of confusion to her enemies;
18and by his mercies.
