Longstone Parish Register, a Short Verse

This extract from Great Longstone Parish Registers is dated 1639 - although the style of handwriting looks a century later. It was transcribed by my cousin Rodney Marples.
Remember well and bear in mind
What you have here to do
By never paying to the Clerk
What unto him was due
Your Conshance it will you persue
And trouble much your mind.
There is a day will quickly come
All hidden things will find
Yet you are not still satisfied
But more you will transgress
By wronging of the widdow also the fatherless
The things which I before have set
It is most certain true
Before it hath been worse for us
Hereafter worse for you
