TT is a fine remark of Lord Bacon,
I that, “ As wines, which, at first * pressing, run gently, yield a more to pleasant taste than those, where the « wine-press is hard wrought, because
those somewhat relish of the stone * and skin of the grape; so those ob« fervations are most wholesome and * sweet, which flow from Scriptures “ gently expressed, and naturally ex« pounded, and are not wrested or « drawn aside to common places, or « controversies.”
