please_v to_o keep_v up_o among_o they_o nevertheless_o that_o do_v not_o hinder_v but_o god_n almighty_n may_v make_v use_n thereof_o far_o for_o type_n and_o representation_n of_o other_o thing_n that_o be_v to_o say_v spiritual_a and_o so_o the_o law_n be_v a_o pedagogy_n under_o a_o temporal_a dispensation_n lead_v many_o to_o heaven_n this_o be_v certain_a that_o the_o covenant_n of_o nature_n &_o grace_n be_v make_v with_o mankind_n be_v not_o matter_n of_o concernment_n only_o to_o the_o jew_n but_o to_o the_o whole_a world_n as_o well_o as_o to_o they_o for_o everlasting_a life_n and_o death_n and_o it_o be_v not_o to_o be_v conceive_v therefore_o that_o either_o of_o they_o shall_v receive_v any_o detriment_n by_o the_o covenant_n make_v with_o that_o particular_a nation_n this_o i_o say_v that_o the_o covenant_n confirm_v before_o of_o god_n in_o christ_n the_o law_n which_o be_v four_o hundred_o and_o thirty_o year_n after_o can_v disannul_v that_o it_o shall_v make_v the_o promise_n of_o no_o effect_n the_o covenant_n of_o god_n in_o christ_n be_v the_o covenant_n of_o grace_n and_o that_o we_o see_v afoot_n in_o the_o world_n before_o the_o law_n and_o before_o abraham_n for_o when_o it_o be_v confirm_v to_o abraham_n it_o must_v be_v in_o be_v before_o on_o necessity_n and_o ever_o be_v since_o the_o fall_n or_o else_o none_o after_o can_v be_v save_v and_o if_o this_o be_v not_o disannule_v then_o can_v that_n whatsoever_o it_o be_v which_o be_v give_v by_o this_o covenant_n come_v to_o the_o jew_n by_o the_o law_n for_o as_o the_o apostle_n argue_v if_o there_o have_v be_v a_o law_n give_v that_o can_v have_v give_v life_n very_o righteousness_n shall_v have_v be_v by_o the_o law_n if_o the_o law_n of_o nature_n can_v be_v keep_v by_o man_n there_o will_v be_v no_o need_n of_o a_o covenant_n of_o grace_n by_o christ_n so_o do_v i_o argue_v if_o righteousness_n unto_o justification_n of_o life_n be_v to_o come_v by_o the_o law_n the_o promise_n or_o covenant_n of_o grace_n as_o soon_o as_o that_o be_v give_v may_v be_v spare_v but_o forasmuch_a as_o eternal_a life_n and_o justification_n do_v come_v only_o by_o the_o covenant_n of_o grace_n it_o follow_v that_o the_o covenant_n make_v with_o the_o jew_n must_v needs_o be_v a_o covenant_n which_o concern_v their_o outward_a state_n or_o political_a welfare_n as_o i_o have_v say_v and_o that_o neither_o salvation_n nor_o condemnation_n as_o to_o the_o life_n to_o come_v be_v the_o primary_n intention_n or_o the_o direct_a and_o proper_a effect_n of_o it_o if_o salvation_n or_o condemnation_n be_v the_o proper_a issue_n of_o the_o law_n then_o can_v neither_o any_o of_o those_o holy_a man_n as_o the_o patriarch_n nor_o any_o of_o the_o wicked_a world_n who_o be_v before_o the_o law_n as_o the_o man_n of_o sodom_n and_o gomorah_n be_v condemn_v at_o the_o day_n of_o judgement_n for_o where_o no_o law_n be_v there_o be_v no_o transgression_n and_o so_o no_o condemnation_n and_o indeed_o if_o this_o covenant_n be_v conceive_v any_o other_o than_o some_o such_o thing_n as_o i_o make_v it_o how_o can_v it_o be_v that_o the_o most_o substantial_a part_n or_o body_n of_o the_o jew_n nation_n shall_v be_v sadducee_n in_o christ_n time_n the_o covenant_n of_o nature_n be_v that_o which_o lay_v all_o the_o world_n guilty_a before_o god_n so_o that_o he_o who_o believe_v not_o be_v condemn_v already_o he_o be_v condemn_v by_o the_o law_n of_o his_o creation_n write_v in_o his_o heart_n he_o need_v no_o outward_a law_n to_o condemn_v he_o whatsoever_o thing_n the_o law_n say_v it_o say_v to_o they_o who_o be_v under_o the_o law_n if_o there_o be_v no_o curse_n nor_o death_n but_o that_o which_o the_o jew_n law_n do_v speak_v than_o be_v there_o none_o but_o the_o jew_n shall_v suffer_v condemnation_n if_o a_o man_n on_o the_o contrary_a side_n do_v believe_v and_o repent_v he_o need_v no_o other_o law_n than_o that_o of_o the_o spirit_n of_o life_n in_o christ_n jesus_n to_o set_v he_o free_a from_o this_o law_n of_o sin_n and_o death_n so_o long_o as_o he_o do_v not_o believe_v he_o abide_v under_o that_o wrath_n and_o it_o be_v not_o for_o want_v of_o faith_n as_o the_o cause_n of_o his_o condemnation_n to_o justify_v god_n in_o not_o give_v all_o man_n that_o alike_o but_o for_o want_v of_o it_o n_z b_o as_o that_o which_o shall_v be_v the_o remedy_n that_o he_o perish_v salvation_n then_o and_o condemnation_n which_o be_v eternal_a do_v proceed_v from_o the_o covenant_n of_o grace_n and_o work_n and_o it_o be_v not_o to_o be_v imagine_v that_o god_n shall_v deal_v otherwise_o with_o the_o jew_n than_o with_o the_o rest_n of_o the_o world_n as_o to_o the_o term_n of_o a_o future_a life_n i_o have_v set_v before_o you_o life_n and_o death_n say_v moses_n and_o curse_v be_v he_o that_o continue_v not_o in_o all_o the_o law_n to_o do_v it_o but_o what_o this_o life_n and_o death_n these_o blessing_n and_o curse_n be_v we_o see_v express_v in_o deuteronomy_n and_o in_o the_o five_o commandment_n the_o law_n which_o god_n do_v give_v the_o jew_n be_v about_o religion_n and_o about_o civil_a

of_o both_o do_v lie_v in_o the_o threat_n and_o promise_n of_o temporal_a blessing_n and_o judgement_n even_o as_o in_o the_o law_n of_o our_o realm_n religion_n and_o the_o service_n of_o god_n be_v require_v under_o a_o civil_a forfeiture_n when_o it_o be_v the_o gospel_n itself_o must_v threaten_v far_a vengeance_n to_o the_o transgressor_n in_o short_a herein_o will_v lie_v the_o mystery_n and_o sum_n of_o all_o the_o law_n as_o it_o be_v in_o the_o hand_n of_o moses_n and_o give_v to_o the_o peculiar_a nation_n of_o the_o jew_n must_v be_v no_o other_o than_o a_o temporal_a covenant_n yet_o do_v this_o temporal_a covenant_n contain_v in_o it_o pattern_n of_o thing_n as_o the_o apostle_n speak_v in_o the_o heaven_n and_o as_o the_o ten_o commandment_n particular_o write_v in_o stone_n be_v a_o transcript_n of_o the_o moral_a law_n write_v by_o nature_n in_o our_o heart_n i_o do_v take_v the_o law_n to_o represent_v the_o covenant_n of_o work_n and_o by_o virtue_n of_o

more_o terrible_a than_o we_o under_o the_o new_a for_o do_v which_o he_o have_v thus_o much_o the_o more_o reason_n indeed_o if_o as_o i_o say_v that_o life_n and_o death_n which_o be_v eternal_a come_v not_o from_o the_o law_n but_o from_o the_o covenant_n of_o work_n and_o grace_n which_o be_v before_o it_o and_o can_v be_v make_v void_a by_o it_o there_o be_v therefore_o the_o believe_v
