well_o to_o be_v angry_a yea_o he_o may_v come_v to_o curse_v the_o day_n of_o his_o birth_n with_o job_n and_o jeremiah_n yea_o he_o may_v come_v to_o have_v his_o word_n swallow_v up_o that_o he_o can_v pray_v job_n 6._o 3._o three_o the_o very_a elect_a may_v possible_o be_v comfortless_a in_o their_o affliction_n according_a to_o that_o in_o isaiah_n 54._o 11._o o_o thou_o afflict_a toss_v with_o tempest_n and_o not_o comfort_v yea_o they_o may_v die_v mourning_n their_o gray_a hair_n may_v go_v with_o mourning_n to_o the_o grave_n as_o jac●b_n speak_v of_o himself_o gen._n 42._o 38._o and_o there_o be_v great_a reason_n why_o affliction_n be_v thus_o irksome_a to_o god_n child_n as_o first_o because_o our_o nature_n be_v trail_v and_o weak_a our_o strength_n be_v not_o reason_n the_o strength_n of_o stone_n nor_o our_o flesh_n of_o brass_n as_o job_n speak_v job_n 6._o 12._o but_o we_o be_v fleshy_a body_n and_o therefore_o very_o sensible_a of_o the_o least_o pain_n second_o the_o devil_n do_v especial_o tempt_v unto_o impatiency_n in_o the_o reason_n time_n of_o our_o affliction_n we_o have_v then_o of_o all_o other_o time_n the_o strong_a temptation_n when_o do_v satan_n most_o tempt_v job_n to_o curse_n god_n but_o in_o the_o depth_n of_o his_o misery_n and_o calamity_n and_o therefore_o it_o be_v not_o much_o to_o be_v marvel_v at_o if_o we_o descry_v natural_a frailty_n and_o weakness_n in_o our_o brethren_n and_o sister_n at_o such_o a_o time_n god_n deliver_v his_o child_n to_o much_o frailty_n that_o in_o their_o weakness_n his_o reason_n power_n may_v be_v see_v for_o how_o admirable_a be_v the_o power_n of_o god_n in_o the_o preserve_n of_o such_o a_o man_n or_o woman_n to_o eternal_a life_n which_o oftentimes_o neither_o know_v what_o they_o do_v nor_o what_o they_o say_v it_o be_v a_o great_a work_n of_o god_n to_o bring_v any_o to_o heaven_n though_o they_o pray_v though_o they_o call_v for_o mercy_n though_o they_o give_v evidence_n of_o faith_n and_o repentance_n but_o to_o bring_v such_o to_o heaven_n which_o for_o the_o present_n can_v pray_v it_o be_v a_o wo●ke_n rather_o to_o be_v admire_v then_o conceive_v god_n also_o suffer_v his_o dear_a child_n to_o die_v uncomfortable_o for_o their_o cause_n reason_n which_o stand_v by_o as_o either_o for_o the_o warn_n of_o his_o saint_n stand_v by_o to_o teach_v they_o to_o take_v heed_n of_o nourish_a corruption_n lest_o it_o trouble_v they_o at_o the_o last_o and_o to_o forewarn_v they_o also_o to_o prepare_v great_a strength_n against_o the_o needful_a time_n or_o else_o the_o lord_n do_v it_o in_o his_o justice_n to_o be_v a_o stumble_a block_n to_o the_o wicked_a that_o stand_v by_o that_o they_o may_v depart_v and_o say_v lo_o these_o be_v the_o professor_n these_o be_v the_o holy_a people_n these_o be_v the_o runner_n to_o sermon_n and_o yet_o you_o see_v what_o end_v they_o make_v god_n bless_v i_o from_o their_o profession_n etc._n etc._n a_o just_a judgement_n of_o god_n that_o forasmuch_o as_o the_o wicked_a will_v not_o receive_v any_o good_a by_o god_n people_n in_o their_o life_n time_n either_o by_o their_o good_a counsel_n or_o good_a example_n that_o therefore_o they_o shall_v receive_v hurt_v and_o bane_n by_o their_o death_n but_o here_o some_o may_v possible_o object_v object_n do_v not_o christ_n himself_o say_v that_o the_o comforter_n shall_v remain_v for_o ever_o with_o his_o elect_n john_n 14._o 16._o yea_o do_v he_o not_o say_v further_o that_o no_o man_n shall_v take_v away_o their_o joy_n john_n 16._o 22._o which_o be_v true_a how_o can_v it_o possible_o be_v that_o the_o child_n of_o god_n have_v have_v at_o any_o time_n sound_a joy_n shall_v die_v uncomfortable_o to_o this_o i_o answer_v that_o indeed_o it_o be_v answer_n true_a soundioy_v shall_v never_o utter_o be_v take_v away_o from_o any_o elect_a vessel_n but_o it_o be_v not_o to_o be_v deny_v but_o the_o sense_n &_o feeling_n of_o that_o joy_n may_v be_v take_v away_o though_o christ_n be_v always_o the_o son_n of_o god_n love_n and_o remain_v for_o ever_o in_o his_o favour_n yet_o he_o be_v not_o always_o sensible_a of_o that_o love_n which_o cause_v he_o to_o cry_v my_o god_n my_o god_n why_o have_v thou_o forsake_v i_o if_o any_o shall_v object_v further_o and_o say_v object_n do_v we_o not_o read_v that_o the_o apostle_n rejoice_v in_o that_o they_o be_v think_v wothie_a to_o suffer_v rebuke_n for_o christ_n act_n 5._o 41._o and_o do_v we_o not_o hear_v of_o those_o holy_a martyr_n in_o hebr._n 10._o 34._o who_o suffer_v with_o joy_n the_o spoil_n of_o their_o good_n yea_o do_v we_o not_o behold_v with_o our_o eye_n many_o christian_n which_o depart_v out_o of_o this_o life_n with_o much_o heavenly_a joy_n therefore_o it_o may_v seem_v that_o the_o end_n of_o god_n child_n be_v a_o joyful_a end_n i_o answer_v it_o be_v true_a that_o many_o christian_n answ_n yea_o i_o hope_v the_o most_o of_o god_n child_n depart_v with_o joy_n but_o this_o be_v not_o the_o condition_n of_o all_o there_o be_v some_o that_o go_v weep_v to_o heaven_n as_o well_o as_o there_o be_v other_o which_o go_v triumph_v there_o be_v some_o that_o be_v carry_v in_o fiery_a chariot_n with_o elias_n and_o as_o it_o be_v in_o a_o whirlwind_n when_o other_o be_v carry_v in_o a_o more_o mild_a manner_n or_o as_o it_o be_v in_o a_o horselitter_n if_o any_o shall_v object_v yet_o and_o say_v do_v object_n we_o not_o read_v in_o psal_n 37._o mark_v the_o upright_a man_n &_o behold_v the_o just_a the_o end_n of_o that_o man_n be_v peace_n therefore_o how_o be_v it_o possible_a that_o the_o end_n of_o the_o child_n of_o god_n shall_v be_v uncomfortable_a it_o be_v most_o true_a that_o the_o end_n of_o answer_n god_n child_n be_v peace_n but_o this_o peace_n be_v especial_o obtain_v in_o the_o world_n to_o come_v for_o so_o say_v the_o prophet_n peace_n shall_v come_v and_o they_o shall_v rest_v in_o their_o

16._o 33._o but_o to_o come_v to_o the_o use_n and_o application_n use_v of_o this_o point_n be_v it_o so_o that_o affliction_n may_v be_v thus_o troublesome_a and_o tedious_a to_o the_o very_a child_n of_o god_n then_o this_o must_v teach_v we_o not_o rash_o to_o censure_v all_o such_o as_o in_o who_o we_o discover_v much_o weakness_n and_o sign_n of_o impatiency_n for_o in_o so_o do_v we_o may_v quick_o come_v to_o condemn_v the_o generation_n of_o the_o righteous_a shall_v we_o judge_v job_n to_o be_v a_o hypocrite_n if_o we_o hear_v he_o curse_v the_o day_n of_o his_o birth_n god_n forbid_v theresore_n judge_v not_o that_o you_o be_v not_o judge_v for_o with_o what_o judgement_n you_o judge_v you_o shall_v be_v judge_v and_o with_o what_o measure_v you_o meet_v it_o shall_v be_v measure_v to_o you_o again_o matth._n 7._o 2._o in_o stead_n of_o judge_v and_o censure_v other_o in_o this_o case_n rather_o learn_v to_o judge_v thyself_o think_v thus_o with_o thyself_o when_o thou_o see_v sign_n of_o impatiency_n in_o good_a people_n first_o that_o sure_o their_o pang_n &_o pain_n be_v exceed_o great_a for_o otherwise_o they_o will_v not_o thus_o complain_v and_o second_o suspect_v thyself_o that_o if_o thou_o be_v in_o their_o case_n and_o do_v endure_v that_o which_o they_o endure_v thou_o thyself_o will_v be_v far_o more_o impatient_a second_o be_v it_o so_o that_o affliction_n use_v may_v be_v thus_o tedious_a unto_o the_o child_n of_o god_n therefore_o this_o must_v teach_v we_o to_o be_v thankful_a to_o god_n when_o our_o brethren_n and_o sister_n make_v a_o comfortable_a end_n how_o great_a cause_n have_v the_o sriend_n and_o kindred_n of_o holy_a martyr_n to_o praise_n god_n when_o they_o behold_v with_o their_o eye_n the_o steadfast_a faith_n the_o undaunted_a courage_n the_o marvelous_a patience_n which_o appear_v in_o those_o worthy_a servant_n of_o god_n and_o so_o when_o we_o behold_v our_o friend_n upon_o their_o deathbed_n justify_v god_n condemn_v themselves_o lay_v hold_n of_o salvation_n by_o christ_n give_v good_a instruction_n unto_o other_o and_o commend_v their_o spirit_n into_o the_o hand_n of_o their_o lord_n which_o have_v buy_v they_o sure_o i_o lay_v in_o this_o case_n we_o have_v great_a and_o just_a cause_n to_o glorify_v god_n and_o so_o much_o the_o rather_o be_v we_o bind_v to_o be_v thankful_a for_o this_o because_o it_o be_v not_o give_v to_o all_o the_o saint_n to_o have_v this_o comfort_n at_o the_o last_o but_o some_o upon_o their_o deathbed_n be_v constrain_v with_o christ_n jesus_n to_o cry_v in_o
