Psalms 50:21

Kept silence — I did not express my displeasure against thee in such judgments as thou didst deserve. Thoughtest — Thou didst misconstrue my patience and long — suffering, as if it had proceeded from my approbation of thy evil courses. Set in order — I will bring to thy remembrance, and lay upon thy conscience all thy sins.
