forgive him; and if he trespass against them thee the sec ond time, and repent not, nevertheless thou shalt forgive him: and if he trespass against thee the third time and repent not thou shalt also forgive him; but if he trespass against thee the fourth time thou shalt not forgive him but shall bring these testimonies before the Lord, and they shall not be blotted out until he repent and reward thee four fold in all things
wherewith he hath trespass ed against you; and if he do this thou shalt forgive him with all thy <thine> heart, and if he do not this, I the Lord will avenge thee of thine enemy an hundred fold; and upon his children, and upon his children’s children, of all them that hate me, unto the third and fourth generation; but if the children shall repent, or the children’s children and turn unto the Lord their God with all their hearts, and with all their might, mind, and strength, and restore four
fold for all their trespasses, wherewith they have trespassed, or wherewith their fathers have trespassed, or their father’s fathers then thine indignation shall be turned away and vengeance shall no more come upon them, saith the Lord your God, and their trespasses shall never be brought any more as a testimony before the Lord against them. Amen.
