and_o counsel_n give_v forth_o by_o joseph_n sleigh_n of_o the_o city_n of_o dublin_n in_o the_o time_n of_o his_o sickness_n to_o his_o child_n and_o since_o his_o death_n it_o be_v think_v fit_a for_o the_o service_n of_o other_o also_o therefore_o it_o be_v order_v into_o print_n that_o other_o child_n etc._n etc._n may_v have_v the_o benefit_n thereof_o print_a in_o the_o year_n 1683._o advice_n from_o a_o father_n in_o the_o time_n of_o his_o weakness_n of_o body_n unto_o his_o tender_a child_n my_o dear_a child_n remember_v your_o creator_n in_o the_o day_n of_o your_o youth_n in_o your_o young_a year_n before_o the_o enemy_n of_o your_o soul_n draw_v your_o mind_n out_o into_o the_o wickedness_n and_o ungodliness_n of_o the_o world_n to_o defile_v your_o heart_n and_o mind_n with_o the_o wickedness_n and_o profaneness_n there_o of_o and_o so_o harden_v your_o heart_n in_o sin_n and_o ungodliness_n which_o will_v bring_v woe_n and_o misery_n upon_o your_o soul_n and_o anguish_n of_o spirit_n and_o bitter_a lamentation_n and_o provoke_v the_o anger_n of_o the_o lord_n against_o you_o this_o be_v the_o work_n of_o the_o destroyer_n of_o soul_n the_o devil_n who_o go_v about_o like_o a_o roar_a lion_n seek_v who_o he_o may_v devour_v and_o no_o soon_o child_n grow_v up_o to_o year_n of_o understanding_n but_o this_o enemy_n come_v to_o tempt_v they_o and_o draw_v they_o into_o evil_n and_o into_o those_o thing_n which_o be_v contrary_a to_o the_o pure_a mind_n and_o will_n of_o the_o lord_n some_o into_o one_o thing_n and_o some_o into_o another_o according_a as_o they_o be_v natural_o incline_v some_o to_o wildness_n and_o rudeness_n some_o to_o pride_n some_o to_o stubborness_n and_o self-conceitedness_a some_o to_o one_o vanity_n and_o some_o to_o another_o this_o be_v the_o work_n of_o the_o destroyer_n therefore_o my_o child_n my_o advice_n to_o you_o in_o tender_a love_n be_v that_o you_o wait_v upon_o the_o lord_n in_o the_o stillness_n and_o coolness_n of_o your_o mind_n in_o the_o silence_n of_o all_o flesh_n or_o fleshly_a thought_n or_o cogitation_n that_o you_o may_v receive_v wisdom_n and_o strength_n from_o the_o lord_n to_o withstand_v the_o enemy_n of_o your_o soul_n for_o as_o it_o be_v write_v in_o the_o scripture_n of_o truth_n they_o that_o wait_v upon_o the_o lord_n shall_v renew_v their_o strength_n for_o none_o be_v able_a to_o overcome_v the_o enemy_n but_o they_o that_o know_v the_o renew_n of_o his_o strength_n for_o of_o yourselves_o as_o christ_n say_v you_o can_v do_v nothing_o and_o a_o overcome_a there_o must_v be_v or_o else_o not_o enter_v into_o that_o rest_n which_o be_v without_o end_n my_o dear_a child_n you_o have_v immortal_a soul_n that_o shall_v never_o die_v but_o shall_v be_v sensible_a either_o of_o everlasting_a joy_n and_o felicity_n with_o the_o lord_n and_o with_o the_o godly_a in_o generation_n past_a in_o the_o kingdom_n of_o unspeakable_a glory_n for_o evermore_o or_o for_o ever_o feel_v the_o anger_n and_o indignation_n of_o the_o lord_n with_o the_o wicked_a and_o ungodly_a in_o the_o hell_n of_o eternal_a woe_n and_o misery_n which_o be_v a_o deplorable_a state_n and_o as_o there_o be_v but_o these_o two_o state_n for_o the_o soul_n to_o remain_v in_o after_o death_n the_o one_o joy_n and_o comfort_n the_o other_o woe_n and_o misery_n so_o there_o be_v but_o two_o way_n the_o one_o be_v the_o straight_a and_o narrow_a way_n that_o lead_v to_o life_n the_o other_o the_o broad_a way_n that_o lead_v to_o the_o chamber_n of_o death_n so_o you_o see_v there_o be_v but_o one_o way_n to_o life_n eternal_a even_o the_o straight_a and_o narrow_a way_n although_o you_o will_v see_v many_o way_n in_o the_o world_n one_o say_v this_o be_v the_o way_n another_o sort_n say_v nay_o but_o this_o be_v the_o way_n and_o so_o various_a sort_n of_o religion_n in_o the_o world_n every_o one_o cry_v up_o their_o several_a notion_n to_o be_v the_o way_n to_o the_o city_n of_o peace_n and_o rest_n which_o upon_o your_o view_n of_o it_o in_o your_o mind_n may_v raise_v doubt_n and_o cause_v some_o consideration_n in_o your_o mind_n and_o from_o the_o consider_v of_o thing_n you_o may_v reason_n within_o yourselves_o here_o be_v many_o sort_n of_o way_n and_o religion_n in_o the_o world_n and_o all_o pretend_v to_o be_v the_o right_a way_n and_o how_o shall_v we_o do_v to_o know_v the_o one_o right_a way_n among_o those_o many_o way_n for_o there_o be_v but_o one_o right_a way_n and_o we_o may_v spend_v all_o our_o day_n in_o run_v from_o one_o religion_n to_o another_o to_o find_v the_o right_a way_n and_o may_v miss_v of_o it_o at_o last_o and_o so_o lie_v down_o our_o head_n in_o sorrow_n answer_n christ_n say_v he_o be_v the_o way_n the_o truth_n and_o the_o life_n and_o it_o be_v say_v in_o the_o scripture_n of_o truth_n that_o christ_n enlighten_v every_o one_o that_o come_v into_o the_o world_n and_o when_o christ_n talk_v with_o the_o woman_n at_o the_o well_o of_o samaria_n about_o worship_n and_o the_o place_n of_o worship_n there_o be_v at_o that_o day_n a_o difference_n between_o the_o samaritan_n and_o the_o jew_n about_o the_o place_n of_o worship_n as_o appear_v by_o the_o woman_n word_n to_o christ_n when_o she_o say_v our_o father_n worship_v in_o this_o mountain_n and_o you_o say_v that_o in_o jerusalem_n be_v the_o place_n where_o man_n ought_v to_o worship_v christ_n say_v woman_n believe_v i_o the_o hour_n come_v when_o you_o shall_v neither_o in_o this_o mountain_n nor_o yet_o at_o jerusalem_n worship_v the_o father_n you_o worship_v you_o know_v not_o what_o we_o know_v what_o we_o worship_v for_o salvation_n be_v of_o the_o jew_n but_o the_o hour_n come_v and_o now_o be_v when_o the_o true_a worshipper_n shall_v worship_v the_o father_n in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n for_o the_o father_n seek_v such_o to_o worship_v he_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n and_o they_o that_o worship_v he_o must_v worship_v he_o in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n joh._n 4.20_o 21_o 22_o 23_o 24._o so_o this_o be_v the_o true_a way_n to_o worship_v the_o father_n set_v up_o by_o christ_n jesus_n the_o shepherd_n and_o bishop_n of_o the_o soul_n the_o spiritual_a worship_n which_o be_v to_o continue_v and_o paul_n say_v what_o may_v be_v know_v of_o god_n be_v make_v manifest_a in_o man_n and_o christ_n forbid_v to_o run_v after_o those_o who_o turn_v people_n mind_n outward_a to_o look_v for_o the_o way_n to_o the_o kingdom_n say_v lo_o here_o or_o lo_o there_o for_o behold_v the_o kingdom_n of_o god_n in_o within_o you_o luk._n 17.21_o now_o if_o the_o kingdom_n be_v within_o of_o necessity_n must_v man_n guide_n be_v there_o also_o as_o the_o apostle_n say_v try_v yourselves_o prove_v yourselves_o know_v you_o not_o how_o that_o christ_n be_v in_o you_o except_o you_o be_v reprobate_n so_o here_o be_v christ_n the_o way_n to_o the_o father_n near_o in_o your_o heart_n to_o guide_v teach_v admonish_v and_o reprove_v and_o to_o justify_v those_o that_o be_v his_o faithful_a follower_n so_o if_o you_o want_v counsel_n you_o may_v wait_v in_o the_o coolness_n and_o stillness_n of_o your_o mind_n and_o counsel_v you_o will_v receive_v if_o you_o be_v like_a to_o faint_v in_o your_o travel_n christ_n the_o way_n will_v be_v as_o the_o shadow_n of_o a_o mighty_a rock_n in_o a_o weary_a land_n if_o you_o be_v thirsty_a he_o will_v be_v to_o you_o as_o a_o well_o of_o water_n to_o refresh_v your_o soul_n if_o you_o hunger_n he_o will_v feed_v you_o with_o the_o bread_n of_o life_n and_o clothe_v you_o with_o his_o spirit_n and_o if_o you_o keep_v the_o word_n of_o his_o patience_n he_o will_v preserve_v you_o in_o the_o hour_n of_o temptation_n but_o it_o may_v be_v object_v and_o say_v how_o shall_v we_o know_v the_o teach_n of_o christ_n by_o his_o spirit_n in_o our_o heart_n from_o the_o suggestion_n of_o the_o enemy_n of_o our_o soul_n which_o be_v also_o a_o spirit_n answer_n that_o which_o reprove_v thou_o in_o secret_a for_o evil_n commit_v by_o thou_o when_o no_o eye_n it_o may_v be_v see_v thou_o be_v the_o spirit_n of_o truth_n which_o lead_v into_o all_o truth_n and_o righteousness_n and_o lead_v those_o who_o give_v up_o to_o be_v lead_v by_o it_o into_o the_o path_n of_o holiness_n without_o which_o none_o shall_v

to_o deny_v all_o ungodliness_n and_o worldly_a lust_n and_o to_o live_v godly_o and_o sober_o in_o this_o present_a evil_a world_n and_o teach_v people_n to_o be_v true_a to_o god_n and_o also_o to_o
