when_o any_o shall_v be_v awaken_v and_o rouse_a and_o make_v to_o see_v their_o condition_n and_o sensible_o know_v they_o be_v ignorant_a of_o god_n live_v at_o a_o distance_n from_o he_o and_o be_v so_o shut_v out_o and_o exclude_v as_o they_o can_v turn_v any_o way_n to_o get_v to_o he_o and_o know_v not_o whether_o ever_o they_o shall_v be_v bring_v to_o see_v the_o king_n face_n or_o not_o whether_o they_o shall_v be_v so_o far_o favour_v or_o not_o i_o say_v the_o feel_a sense_n of_o this_o exclusion_n from_o god_n be_v the_o first_o degree_n of_o hell_n and_o this_o god_n can_v soon_o do_v he_o can_v soon_o awake_a and_o rouse_v and_o open_v how_o the_o case_n stand_v with_o the_o soul_n that_o it_o may_v cry_v out_o with_o cain_n my_o punishment_n be_v great_a than_o i_o can_v

be_v make_v to_o feel_v the_o very_a pain_n and_o torment_n of_o hell_n to_o go_v under_o the_o gnaw_v of_o that_o worm_n of_o conscience_n which_o continual_o dog_n and_o gnaw_v and_o torment_v the_o

for_o as_o i_o say_v the_o child_n of_o god_n may_v and_o do_v many_o time_n pass_v through_o the_o two_o former_a but_o this_o make_v it_o up_o to_o be_v hell_n indeed_o when_o everlastingness_n be_v

answer_v between_o we_o and_o you_o be_v a_o great_a gulf_n set_v that_o they_o that_o will_v come_v from_o you_o to_o we_o can_v etc._n etc._n this_o be_v the_o hell_n indeed_o and_o the_o time_n be_v come_v that_o this_o will_v grow_v up_o to_o be_v more_o know_v in_o the_o world_n that_o man_n shall_v have_v their_o hell_n open_v and_o their_o sentence_n read_v in_o their_o own_o

knowledge_n of_o their_o salvation_n and_o so_o for_o the_o child_n of_o the_o devil_n how_o few_o have_v have_v their_o conscience_n open_v and_o condemnation_n seal_v but_o have_v sleep_v out_o their_o day_n sottish_o and_o go_v hood-winked_n to_o hell_n but_o as_o the_o truth_n shall_v get_v up_o to_o open_a salvation_n to_o the_o son_n of_o god_n that_o that_o be_v their_o lot_n and_o

4._o this_o consideration_n may_v move_v you_o to_o fear_v not_o know_v how_o soon_o the_o day_n of_o mercy_n may_v be_v slip_v over_o and_o the_o day_n of_o visitation_n hide_v from_o our_o eye_n
