'Hast thou command? by him that gave it thee, (625)
From a pure heart command thy rebel will: (626)
Draw not thy sword to guard iniquity, (627)
For it was lent thee all that brood to kill. (628)
Thy princely office how canst thou fulfill,
When, pattern'd by thy fault, foul sin may say, (630)
He learn'd to sin, and thou didst teach the way?
