87 I pray the God of my salvation that he view me with his all- searching eye;
88 Wherefore, ye shall know at the last day, when all men shall be judged of their works, that the God of Israel did witness that I shook your iniquities from my soul, and that I stand with brightness before him, and am rid of your blood.
89 O, my beloved brethren, turn away from your sins; shake off the chains of him that would bind you fast;
90 Come unto that God who is the rock of your salvation.
91 Prepare your souls for that glorious day, when justice shall be administered unto the righteous; even the day of judgment, that ye may not shrink with awful fear;
92 That ye may not remember your awful guilt in perfectness, and be constrained to exclaim, Holy, holy are thy judgments, O Lord God Almighty.
93 But I know my guilt; I transgressed thy law, and my transgressions are mine; and the devil hath obtained me, that I am a prey to his awful misery.
94 But behold, my brethren, is it expedient that I should awake you to an awful reality of these things?
95 Would I harrow up your souls, if your minds were pure?
96 Would I be plain unto you according to the plainness of the truth, if ye were freed from sin?
97 Behold, if ye were holy, I would speak unto you of holiness; but as ye are not holy, and ye look upon me as a teacher, it must needs be expedient that I teach you the consequences of sin.
