Runs may Read

(He that). The Bible quotation in Habakkuk ii. 2 is, “Write the vision, and make it plain, that he may run that readeth it.” Cowper says -

But truths, on which depends our main concern...
Shine by the side of every path we tread
With such a lustre, he that runs may read.

Tirocinium.
