Psalm 18 Ver. 20. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness

viz. The righteousness of my cause;

and my freedom from such crimes of disloyalty and ambition, wherewith mine enemies charged me, as if pricked on by my pride I sought the kingdom.

As also, according to mine honest desire and endeavour in all things else to keep a good conscience, void of offence toward God and men.

This, though God’s own work, and a debt most due to him, yet he is pleased graciously to reward.
