Order and Disorder 19 from line 65:
Such in his desolate lodging Jacob found
Who sees the ladder standing on the ground,
The top up to high heaven advanced, from whence
The angels waiting on God's providence
Perpetually in thick troops made descent
And back to heaven by the same steps went:
To heaven where his penetrating sight
Beheld the glorious uncreated light
Where are the ladder's top Jehovah stood
And thus His lasting promises renewed:
'I am that God whom Abraham did before,
And since, thy father Isaac did adore.
The land on which thou liest, I have decreed
To give unto thee and thy blessed seed
Which I will make as numerous as the sands,
Dilate to the east, west, north, and southern lands.
Blessings unto the whole earth's families
From thee and thy successors shall arise.
Lo, I am with thee and in every place
Where'er thou goest will be thy guard; my grace
Shall thee in all thy wandering sustain
And to this land conduct thee back again.
Till all my promises accomplished be
I will in no distress abandon thee.'
