from_o the_o creation_n or_o even_o from_o christ_n time_n i_o be_o sufficient_o satisfy_v that_o we_o ought_v to_o keep_v a_o sabbath_n that_o be_v a_o day_n of_o holy_a rest_n after_o six_o day_n of_o ordinary_a labour_n according_a to_o the_o four_o commandment_n and_o this_o in_o a_o continue_a course_n or_o circulation_n but_o i_o be_o not_o certain_a nor_o can_v i_o be_v which_o be_v a_o

in_o the_o church_n where_o i_o live_v in_o old_a england_n i_o observe_v the_o sabbath_n which_o here_o i_o find_v and_o if_o i_o be_v in_o new-england_n i_o will_v observe_v the_o sabbath_n which_o

a_o point_n as_o whereon_o the_o main_a of_o god_n public_a worship_n do_v much_o depend_v on_o such_o a_o circumstance_n as_o be_v impossible_a for_o we_o to_o know_v and_o of_o which_o we_o may_v

temple_n this_o premise_a i_o can_v agree_v with_o this_o author_n in_o many_o thing_n by_o he_o discuss_v i_o agree_v that_o our_o lord_n jesus_n christ_n according_a to_o his_o divinity_n be_v god_n and_o be_v so_o the_o true_a god_n the_o god_n that_o make_v heaven_n and_o earth_n the_o god_n who_o deliver_v the_o law_n upon_o mount_n sinai_n for_o though_o we_o do_v acknowledge_v in_o the_o godhead_n a_o trinity_n of_o person_n father_n son_n and_o holy_a ghost_n whereof_o christ_n according_a to_o his_o divinity_n be_v call_v the_o second_o person_n the_o son_n of_o god_n or_o god_n the_o son_n yet_o those_o three_o person_n be_v but_o one_o god_n nor_o do_v i_o know_v any_o other_o true_a god_n but_o one_o the_o god_n that_o make_v heaven_n and_o earth_n the_o lord_n jehovah_n the_o god_n of_o abraham_n isaac_n and_o jacob_n the_o lord_n god_n of_o israel_n the_o lord_n their_o god_n who_o bring_v they_o out_o of_o the_o land_n of_o egypt_n out_o of_o the_o house_n of_o bondage_n and_o beside_o who_o we_o be_v to_o have_v no_o other_o god_n the_o god_n who_o deliver_v the_o law_n to_o they_o on_o mount_n sinai_n and_o i_o do_v agree_v that_o our_o lord_n jesus_n christ_n be_v as_o to_o his_o divinity_n this_o god_n the_o true_a god_n the_o only_a true_a god_n and_o that_o he_o be_v so_o before_o his_o incarnation_n how_o far_o each_o of_o those_o action_n be_v to_o be_v ascribe_v to_o this_o or_o that_o person_n of_o the_o trinity_n we_o need_v not_o be_v over_o solicitous_a what_o in_o the_o new_a testament_n be_v more_o peculiar_o ascribe_v to_o this_o or_o that_o of_o the_o three_o person_n be_v in_o the_o old_a testament_n wont_a to_o be_v ascribe_v to_o god_n indefinite_o without_o such_o particular_a application_n the_o doctrine_n of_o the_o trinity_n be_v then_o not_o so_o distinct_o discover_v but_o i_o can_v agree_v that_o christ_n as_o god_n and_o man_n in_o contradistinction_n to_o the_o father_n and_o holy_a ghost_n do_v all_o those_o thing_n for_o he_o be_v not_o then_o man._n i_o agree_v with_o he_o also_o that_o god_n who_o make_v the_o world_n in_o six_o day_n rest_v the_o seven_o day_n gen._n 2._o 23._o exod._n 20._o 11._o and_o that_o he_o bless_v the_o sabbath_n day_n and_o hallow_v it_o and_o that_o according_o he_o have_v appoint_v after_o six_o day_n of_o ordinary_a labour_n man_n shall_v observe_v a_o seven_o day_n of_o holy_a rest_n and_o this_o in_o a_o continue_a succession_n but_o i_o shall_v rather_o say_v that_o our_o lord_n jesus_n christ_n be_v according_a to_o his_o divinity_n that_o god_n who_o bless_v the_o seven_o day_n gen._n 2._o than_o that_o the_o god_n who_o bless_v the_o sabbath_n day_n be_v the_o lord_n jesus_n christ_n as_o he_o do_v p._n 64._o and_o elsewhere_o very_a often_o seem_v to_o lay_v great_a stress_n upon_o it_o for_o he_o be_v not_o then_o the_o lord_n christ_n god_n and_o man_n nor_o do_v he_o bless_v it_o as_o christ_n but_o as_o god_n in_o union_n with_o the_o father_n and_o holy_a ghost_n not_o as_o contradistinguish_v from_o they_o i_o agree_v also_o that_o the_o law_n of_o the_o sabbath_n be_v one_o of_o the_o decalogue_n or_o ten_o commandment_n deliver_v to_o israel_n on_o mount_n sinai_n ex._n 20._o but_o i_o be_o willing_a to_o think_v it_o be_v a_o law_n before_o not_o only_o because_o we_o find_v it_o observe_v exod._n 16._o before_o the_o give_v of_o the_o law_n on_o mount_n sinai_n ex._n 20._o but_o especial_o because_o of_o that_o in_o gen._n 2._o 3._o god_n bless_v the_o seven_o day_n and_o sanctify_v it_o because_o in_o it_o he_o rest_v from_o all_o his_o work_n and_o those_o who_o be_v most_o averse_a to_o the_o morality_n as_o it_o be_v wont_a to_o be_v call_v or_o the_o perpetuity_n of_o the_o sabbath_n or_o day_n of_o holy_a rest_n and_o be_v yet_o very_o zealous_a for_o the_o holiness_n of_o place_n will_v be_v very_o fond_a of_o it_o if_o they_o can_v find_v so_o clear_a
of_o proper_a name_n whereby_o person_n time_n or_o place_n be_v common_o know_v without_o scruple_v the_o occasion_n of_o their_o first_o imposition_n and_o i_o will_v desire_v those_o gentleman_n who_o be_v so_o over_o scrupulous_a where_o there_o be_v no_o just_a occasion_n and_o make_v it_o their_o business_n to_o throw_v scruple_n and_o cast_a stumbling-block_n before_o other_o to_o
