- Obadiah 3-4,
My own metrification of Obadiah 3-4. I quite like this metre, 8,6,8,8: it's also found in the tune 'Lebanon' (p. 354t, The Sacred Harp, 1991, although it's incorrectly labelled as C.M. there.).
Thine own heart has deceived thee
Who dwells within the mount,
Beliving falsely in thy heart
That none may bring thee to the ground.
Though thou exalt thyself so high
And with the eagle soar;
Though with the stars thou set thy nest,
"I bring thee down," so saith the Lord.
