divine_a vengeance_n what_o shall_v we_o say_v then_o if_o our_o lord_n be_v suffer_v in_o this_o terrible_a manner_n be_v able_a to_o shake_v the_o whole_a frame_n of_o the_o visible_a world_n as_o it_o do_v if_o it_o can_v disorder_v the_o very_a inanimate_a and_o insensible_a part_n of_o it_o though_o they_o be_v altogether_o innocent_a of_o its_o gild_n if_o it_o can_v rend_v the_o veil_n of_o the_o temple_n and_o split_v the_o rock_n and_o darken_v the_o sun_n and_o overspread_v the_o face_n of_o the_o earth_n with_o thick_a darkness_n and_o open_v the_o grave_n and_o make_v dead_a body_n arise_v and_o walk_v abroad_o what_o powerful_a effect_n then_o and_o what_o irresistible_a influence_n shall_v all_o this_o have_v upon_o we_o who_o in_o as_o much_o as_o we_o be_v all_o sinner_n have_v but_o too_o great_a a_o share_n in_o be_v the_o cause_n of_o his_o thus_o suffer_v what_o passionate_a relent_n what_o vehement_a desire_n what_o fervent_a long_n shall_v the_o remembrance_n of_o all_o this_o excite_v in_o our_o soul_n towards_o he_o what_o 11._o carefulness_n yea_o what_o clear_v of_o ourselves_o yea_o what_o indignation_n yea_o what_o fear_v yea_o what_o zeal_n yea_o what_o revenge_n against_o sin_n and_o iniquity_n that_o occasion_v all_o this_o what_o resolution_n of_o better_a obedience_n what_o vigilancy_n what_o prayer_n what_o tear_n what_o vow_n for_o the_o future_a shall_v it_o solemn_o engage_v we_o in_o against_o those_o our_o transgression_n which_o cost_v he_o so_o dear_a no_o less_o than_o his_o immaculate_a blood_n and_o weigh_v down_o for_o a_o time_n his_o righteous_a soul_n into_o hell_n thus_o christ_n suffer_v for_o we_o to_o pay_v a_o inestimable_a price_n for_o our_o demerit_n and_o by_o his_o own_o merit_n to_o make_v we_o sinner_n acceptable_a in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n who_o be_v of_o 13._o pure_a eye_n than_o to_o behold_v iniquity_n but_o may_v we_o now_o safe_o conclude_v from_o hence_o that_o the_o whole_a design_n of_o our_o redemption_n be_v absolute_o finish_v between_o god_n and_o he_o and_o we_o mere_o by_o his_o suffer_v for_o we_o yes_o entire_o as_o to_o the_o meritorious_a part_n of_o it_o though_o we_o shall_v all_o beware_v of_o negligence_n or_o presumption_n on_o that_o account_n for_o there_o still_o remain_v enough_o to_o be_v do_v on_o our_o part_n his_o share_n be_v in_o truth_n all_o in_o all_o and_o all_o in_o every_o part._n it_o be_v complete_o to_o purchase_v salvation_n for_o we_o but_o then_o must_v begin_v and_o then_o only_o can_v begin_v our_o share_n which_o be_v still_o to_o work_v out_o that_o salvation_n so_o that_o although_o all_o our_o work_v can_v only_o proceed_v on_o the_o sure_a foundation_n of_o his_o purchase_n yet_o withal_o it_o must_v indispensable_o proceed_v thereupon_o and_o let_v we_o not_o be_v deceive_v if_o as_o we_o be_v tell_v even_o our_o best_a work_v in_o this_o life_n can_v be_v without_o some_o fear_n and_o tremble_v what_o 12._o will_v our_o not_o work_v at_o all_o be_v consider_v i_o beseech_v you_o the_o free_a grace_n of_o our_o lord_n be_v redeem_v mankind_n by_o his_o blood_n the_o blood_n of_o the_o new_a 20._o and_o everlasting_a covenant_n as_o large_a and_o diffusive_a as_o it_o be_v yet_o can_v be_v of_o no_o consequence_n to_o we_o in_o particular_a but_o to_o aggravate_v our_o condemnation_n for_o neglect_v it_o unless_o we_o not_o only_o accept_v and_o apprehend_v it_o by_o faith_n but_o embrace_v and_o cherish_v it_o with_o a_o live_v faith_n and_o then_o faith_n only_o live_v in_o a_o evangelical_n sense_n not_o only_a when_o it_o breathe_v and_o profess_v but_o when_o it_o move_v and_o work_v than_o it_o most_o life_n when_o it_o operate_v vigorous_o in_o a_o conscientious_a

that_o he_o may_v leave_v we_o a_o example_n and_o we_o shall_v follow_v his_o step_n we_o know_v there_o be_v some_o that_o call_v themselves_o christian_n who_o reject_v the_o great_a fundamental_a doctrine_n of_o our_o lord_n be_v suffer_v for_o we_o as_o a_o propitiatory_a sacrifice_n allow_v no_o other_o end_n of_o his_o come_v and_o live_v and_o die_v in_o the_o flesh_n but_o that_o he_o may_v show_v we_o the_o way_n to_o heaven_n by_o his_o teach_v and_o example_n i_o need_v not_o in_o this_o audience_n labour_v to_o confute_v this_o or_o to_o prove_v christ_n have_v be_v a_o real_a

can_v have_v have_v the_o least_o hope_n to_o follow_v have_v he_o not_o also_o be_v a_o propitiation_n for_o our_o sin_n and_o that_o propitiation_n will_v prevail_v with_o the_o righteous_a judge_n of_o all_o the_o world_n only_o for_o such_o as_o in_o some_o degree_n or_o other_o sincere_o practice_n after_o his_o pattern_n upon_o no_o less_o nor_o any_o other_o condition_n have_v he_o

obtain_v for_o we_o of_o follow_v the_o step_v of_o his_o grace_n it_o must_v be_v confess_v without_o his_o righteousness_n impute_v to_o we_o we_o can_v never_o be_v justify_v in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n and_o his_o righteousness_n be_v never_o impute_v to_o any_o but_o only_o those_o by_o who_o either_o in_o deed_n or_o in_o will_n it_o be_v imitate_v i_o say_v not_o only_o in_o deed_n
