the_o great_a authority_n god_n put_v upon_o the_o law_n the_o great_a mercy_n in_o give_v it_o to_o they_o rather_o than_o another_o nation_n and_o the_o verse_n i_o have_v read_v belong_v to_o that_o argument_n which_o prove_v the_o dignity_n and_o glorious_a authority_n of_o the_o law_n from_o the_o manner_n of_o deliver_v it_o which_o law_n he_o declare_v to_o we_o by_o the_o name_n and_o

as_o it_o be_v here_o in_o these_o word_n the_o doctrine_n i_o will_v insist_v upon_o be_v that_o the_o law_n be_v deliver_v appear_v by_o god_n on_o mount_n sinai_n in_o a_o covenant_n way_n or_o the_o law_n be_v a_o covenant_n that_o god_n make_v with_o the_o people_n of_o israel_n this_o will_v appear_v in_o that_o it_o have_v the_o name_n of_o a_o covenant_n and_o the_o real_a property_n of_o a_o covenant_n 1._o the_o name_n of_o a_o covenant_n 2_o king_n 18._o 12._o because_o they_o covenant_n obey_v not_o the_o voice_n of_o the_o lord_n their_o god_n but_o transgress_v his_o

even_o as_o when_o the_o apostle_n say_v 2_o cor._n 3._o 6._o god_n have_v make_v we_o able_a minister_n of_o the_o new_a testament_n he_o do_v not_o mean_v the_o write_n or_o book_n but_o the_o

may_v see_v the_o real_a property_n of_o a_o covenant_n covenant_n which_o be_v a_o mutual_a consent_n and_o stipulation_n on_o both_o side_n see_v a_o full_a relation_n of_o this_o exod_a 3_o 24._o from_o the_o 3._o v_o to_o the_o 9_o the_o the_o apostle_n relate_v this_o history_n heb._n 9_o wherein_o learned_a interpreter_n observe_v many_o difficulty_n but_o i_o shall_v not_o meddle_v with_o they_o in_o the_o word_n quote_v out_o of_o exodus_fw-la you_o see_v these_o thing_n which_o belong_v to_o a_o covenant_n first_o there_o be_v god_n himself_o express_v his_o consent_n and_o willingness_n to_o be_v their_o god_n if_o they_o will_v keep_v such_o commandment_n there_o and_o then_o deliver_v to_o they_o ver_n 3._o second_o you_o have_v the_o people_n full_a consent_n and_o ready_a willingness_n to_o obey_v they_o ver_fw-la 3._o &_o ver_fw-la 7._o three_o because_o covenant_n use_v to_o be_v write_v down_o for_o a_o memorial_n unto_o posterity_n therefore_o we_o see_v moses_n write_v the_o precept_n down_o in_o a_o book_n four_o because_o covenant_n use_v to_o be_v confirm_v by_o some_o outward_a visible_a sign_n especial_o by_o kill_v of_o beast_n and_o offer_v they_o in_o sacrifice_n therefore_o we_o have_v this_o also_o do_v and_o half_a of_o the_o blood_n be_v sprinkle_v on_o the_o altar_n to_o denote_v god_n enter_v into_o covenant_n and_o the_o people_n also_o be_v sprinkle_v with_o blood_n to_o show_v their_o voluntary_a covenant_v thus_o we_o have_v real_a covenant_v when_o the_o law_n be_v give_v so_o also_o you_o may_v see_v this_o in_o effect_n deut._n 29._o 10_o 11_o 12_o 13._o where_o its_o express_o say_v that_o they_o stand_v to_o enter_v into_o covenant_n with_o god_n that_o he_o may_v establish_v they_o to_o be_v a_o people_n unto_o himself_o and_o that_o he_o may_v be_v a_o god_n unto_o they_o again_o you_o have_v this_o clear_o in_o deut._n 26._o 17_o 18._o where_o it_o be_v say_v thou_o have_v avouch_v the_o lord_n this_o day_n to_o be_v thy_o god_n and_o to_o walk_v in_o his_o way_n and_o the_o lord_n have_v avouch_v thou_o this_o day_n to_o be_v his_o peculiar_a people_n so_o that_o it_o be_v very_o plain_a the_o law_n be_v give_v as_o a_o covenant_n yea_o the_o apostle_n call_v it_o a_o testament_n for_o howsoever_o some_o have_v dislike_v that_o distinction_n of_o the_o old_a and_o new_a testament_n especial_o as_o apply_v to_o the_o book_n &_o write_n of_o the_o holy_a penman_n of_o scripture_n think_v as_o austin_n they_o may_v be_v better_o call_v the_o old_a and_o new_a instrument_n because_o they_o be_v authentical_a and_o confirm_v by_o sufficient_a witness_n as_o tertullian_n call_v the_o bible_n nostra_fw-la digesta_fw-la from_o the_o lawyer_n and_o other_o call_v it_o our_o pandect_n from_o they_o also_o yet_o 1_o cor._n 3._o do_v warrant_v such_o a_o distinction_n only_o the_o question_n be_v how_o this_o covenant_n can_v be_v call_v proper_o a_o testament_n because_o christ_n die_v not_o twice_o and_o there_o can_v be_v a_o testament_n without_o the_o death_n of_o a_o testator_n but_o the_o answer_n be_v that_o there_o be_v a_o typical_a death_n of_o christ_n in_o the_o sacrifice_n and_o that_o be_v ground_n enough_o to_o make_v the_o covenant_n to_o be_v mean_v call_v a_o testament_n have_v prove_v it_o be_v a_o covenant_n all_o the_o difficulty_n remain_v in_o declare_v what_o covenant_n it_o be_v for_o here_o be_v much_o difference_n of_o judgement_n even_o with_o the_o learned_a and_o orthodox_n and_o this_o do_v arise_v from_o the_o different_a place_n of_o the_o scripture_n which_o although_o they_o be_v not_o contrary_a one_o to_o another_o yet_o the_o weakness_n of_o our_o understanding_n be_v many_o time_n overmaster_v by_o some_o place_n some_o as_o you_o have_v hear_v make_v it_o a_o covenant_n of_o work_n other_o a_o mix_a covenant_n some_o a_o subservient_fw-fr covenant_n but_o i_o be_o persuade_v to_o go_v with_o those_o who_o hold_v it_o to_o be_v a_o covenant_n of_o grace_n and_o indeed_o it_o be_v very_o easy_a to_o bring_v strong_a argument_n for_o the_o affirmative_a but_o then_o there_o will_v be_v some_o difficulty_n to_o answer_v such_o place_n as_o be_v bring_v for_o the_o negative_a and_o if_o the_o affirmative_a prove_v true_a the_o dignity_n and_o excellency_n of_o the_o law_n will_v appear_v the_o more_o now_o before_o i_o come_v to_o the_o argument_n which_o induce_v i_o hereunto_o consider_v in_o what_o sense_n it_o explain_v may_v be_v explain_v that_o it_o be_v a_o covenant_n of_o grace_n some_o explain_v it_o thus_o that_o it_o be_v indeed_o a_o covenant_n of_o grace_n but_o the_o jew_n by_o their_o corrupt_a understanding_n make_v it_o a_o covenant_n of_o work_n and_o so_o oppose_v it_o unto_o christ_n and_o therefore_o say_v they_o the_o apostle_n argue_v against_o the_o law_n as_o make_v it_o to_o oppose_v the_o promise_n and_o grace_n not_o that_o it_o do_v so_o but_o only_o in_o regard_n of_o the_o jew_n corrupt_a mind_n who_o make_v a_o opposition_n where_o there_o be_v none_o this_o have_v some_o truth_n in_o it_o but_o it_o be_v not_o full_a some_o make_v the_o law_n to_o be_v a_o covenant_n of_o grace_n but_o very_o obscure_o and_o therefore_o they_o hold_v the_o gospel_n and_o the_o law_n to_o be_v the_o same_o differ_v only_o as_o the_o acorne_n while_o it_o be_v in_o the_o husk_n and_o the_o oak_n when_o it_o be_v branch_v out_o into_o a_o tall_a tree_n now_o if_o this_o shall_v be_v understand_v in_o a_o popish_a sense_n as_o if_o the_o righteousness_n of_o the_o law_n and_o the_o gospel_n be_v all_o one_o in_o which_o sense_n the_o papist_n speak_v of_o the_o old_a law_n and_o the_o new_a it_o will_v be_v very_o dangerous_a and_o direct_o thwart_v the_o scripture_n some_o explain_v it_o thus_o god_n say_v they_o have_v a_o primary_n or_o antecedent_n will_v in_o give_v of_o the_o law_n or_o a_o secondary_a and_o consequent_a his_o primary_n will_v
