up a voluntary hymn, and shall praise him that made them, together with the angels, and spirits, and men, now freed from all bondage.

7. And now, if you Gentiles will be persuaded by these motives, and leave your vain imaginations about your pedigrees, and gaining of riches, and philosophy, and will not spend your time about subtilities of words, and thereby lead your minds into error, and if you will apply your ears to the hearing of the inspired prophets, the interpreters, both of God and of his word, and will believe in God, you shall both be partakers of these things, and obtain the good things that are to come; you shall see the ascent unto the immense heaven plainly, and that kingdom which is there. For what God hath now concealed in silence [will he then made manifest,] what neither cye hath seen, nor car hath heard, nor hath it entered into the heart of man, the things that God hath prepared for them that love him.

8. In whatsoever ways I shall find you, in them shall I judge you entirely ; so cries the END of all things. And he who hath at first lived a virtuous life, but towards the latter end' falls into vice, these labours by him before endured, shall be altogether vain and unprofitable, even as in a play, brought to an ill catastrophe, Whosoever shall have lived wickedly and luxuriously may repent ; howey.. er, there will be need of much time to conquer an evil hab. it, and after repentance his whole life must be guarded with great care and diligence, after the manner of a body, which, after it hath been a long time afflicted with a distemper, requires a stricter diet and method of living : for though it may be possible, perhaps, to break off the cbain of our irregular affections at once, yet our amendment cannot be se, cured without the grace of God, the prayers of good men, the help of the brethren, and our own sincere repentance, and constant care. It is a good thing not to sin at all, it is also good, having sinned, to repent; as it is best to have health always, but it is a good thing to recover from a dis, temper. to God be glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.
