set_v up_o his_o reason_n against_o the_o letter_n of_o it_o as_o i_o have_v observe_v he_o often_o to_o do_v to_o conclude_v that_o the_o assembly_n of_o christian_n be_v place_n for_o secret_a prayer_n of_o each_o apart_o when_o they_o do_v not_o interfere_v with_o any_o public_a office_n as_o well_o as_o for_o public_a appear_v from_o the_o whole_a tenor_n of_o the_o scripture_n and_o the_o constant_a practice_n of_o the_o church_n of_o god_n ancient_n and_o reform_a and_o that_o those_o secret_a prayer_n ought_v to_o be_v offer_v with_o adoration_n as_o well_o as_o the_o public_a be_v likewise_o manifest_a and_o therefore_o the_o directory_n by_o forbid_v adoration_n at_o our_o first_o come_v into_o church_n have_v exclude_v it_o where_o it_o be_v most_o proper_a iii_o but_o three_o i_o take_v it_o for_o grant_v that_o when_o a_o old_a law_n or_o rule_n be_v lay_v aside_o and_o a_o new_a substitute_v in_o the_o place_n of_o it_o all_o thing_n contain_v in_o the_o old_a repeal_v law_n or_o order_n be_v lay_v aside_o which_o be_v not_o contain_v and_o again_o enjoin_v in_o the_o new_a by_o which_o rule_n the_o directory_n do_v plain_o exclude_v all_o bodily_a worship_n for_o in_o the_o preface_n to_o it_o we_o be_v tell_v that_o they_o resolve_v to_o lay_v aside_o the_o former_a liturgy_n with_o the_o many_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n former_o use_v in_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n and_o have_v agree_v on_o this_o follow_a directory_n for_o all_o the_o part_n of_o public_a worship_n at_o ordinary_a and_o extraordinary_a time_n here_o then_o the_o liturgy_n with_o all_o the_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n use_v former_o in_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n be_v lay_v aside_o not_o only_o our_o praise_n prayer_n etc._n etc._n be_v exclude_v but_o all_o the_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n with_o which_o they_o be_v perform_v such_o as_o kneel_v stand_v etc._n etc._n and_o instead_o of_o these_o we_o be_v oblige_v to_o no_o more_o than_o be_v order_v in_o the_o directory_n prayer_n praise_n etc._n etc._n be_v there_o indeed_o order_v and_o the_o way_n of_o perform_v they_o prescribe_v but_o not_o a_o word_n of_o bodily_a worship_n and_o therefore_o it_o be_v plain_o exclude_v among_o the_o other_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n that_o be_v lay_v aside_o iu._n all_o that_o mr._n b._n allege_v to_o prove_v that_o this_o bodily_a adoration_n be_v require_v by_o the_o directory_n be_v rem_fw-la p._n 109._o that_o it_o require_v such_o as_o come_v into_o the_o congregation_n after_o public_a worship_n be_v begin_v not_o to_o betake_v themselves_o to_o their_o private_a devotion_n but_o reverent_o to_o compose_v themselves_o to_o join_v with_o the_o assembly_n in_o that_o ordinance_n of_o god_n that_o be_v then_o in_o hand_n which_o can_v import_v no_o less_o than_o put_v themselves_o into_o a_o bodily_a posture_n most_o suitable_a to_o that_o ordinance_n but_o i_o answer_v this_o passage_n import_v no_o such_o thing_n the_o assembly_n have_v no_o where_o explain_v reverence_n in_o this_o sense_n or_o give_v the_o least_o reason_n to_o believe_v that_o they_o think_v one_o posture_n more_o suitable_a to_o one_o ordinance_n than_o another_o except_o sit_v at_o the_o lord_n supper_n which_o posture_n they_o seem_v to_o approve_v through_o the_o whole_a service_n for_o they_o require_v those_o that_o come_v in_o to_o take_v their_o seat_n or_o place_n which_o in_o common_a acceptation_n be_v to_o sit_v down_o and_o they_o never_o require_v they_o to_o rise_v it_o be_v therefore_o incumbent_a on_o mr._n b._n to_o prove_v that_o by_o join_v reverent_o in_o prayer_n or_o thanksgiving_n for_o example_n be_v mean_v stand_v or_o kneel_v at_o they_o or_o else_o this_o be_v no_o vindication_n of_o the_o directory_n but_o second_o we_o be_v not_o leave_v to_o guess_v what_o be_v mean_v by_o join_v reverent_o in_o the_o ordinance_n then_o in_o hand_n the_o sentence_n immediate_o go_v before_o explain_v it_o where_o the_o assembly_n tell_v how_o the_o people_n be_v to_o join_v in_o public_a worship_n even_o by_o forbear_v to_o read_v any_o thing_n abstain_v from_o private_a whisper_n conference_n salutation_n or_o do_v reverence_n to_o any_o person_n from_o all_o gaze_a sleep_a and_o other_o indecent_a behaviour_n which_o may_v disturb_v the_o minister_n or_o people_n this_o be_v the_o way_n they_o be_v to_o join_v in_o the_o service_n of_o god_n but_o not_o one_o word_n of_o put_v themselves_o into_o a_o bodily_a posture_n most_o suitable_a to_o the_o ordinance_n that_o be_v in_o hand_n it_o be_v plain_a therefore_o as_o i_o say_v before_o that_o they_o exclude_v these_o when_o they_o lay_v aside_o the_o many_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n use_v former_o in_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n and_o never_o restore_v they_o v._o let_v i_o add_v further_o that_o reverence_n and_o worship_n be_v very_o different_a thing_n we_o ought_v to_o behave_v ourselves_o reverent_o to_o all_o our_o better_n and_o at_o all_o time_n but_o worship_n be_v peculiarly_a to_o our_o superior_n who_o have_v power_n over_o we_o and_o as_o the_o thing_n be_v different_a so_o there_o be_v different_a outward_a act_n that_o express_v they_o and_o neither_o your_o directory_n confession_n of_o faith_n or_o catechism_n or_o any_o other_o authentic_a rule_n that_o i_o know_v of_o among_o you_o require_v any_o one_o visible_a act_n peculiar_a to_o worship_n in_o your_o assembly_n nor_o do_v i_o see_v by_o what_o authority_n your_o minister_n can_v exact_v it_o from_o their_o people_n where_o they_o pretend_v to_o conform_v to_o the_o directory_n nor_o can_v it_o be_v pretend_v that_o the_o composer_n of_o it_o forget_v this_o for_o it_o be_v manifest_a that_o they_o remember_v it_o so_o far_o as_o to_o forbid_v all_o adoration_n where_o it_o be_v most_o proper_a that_o be_v at_o our_o come_n into_o the_o assembly_n and_o never_o require_v nor_o allow_v it_o any_o where_o after_o vi_o three_o what_o i_o have_v say_v concern_v the_o sense_n of_o the_o assembly_n that_o compose_v your_o directory_n be_v agreeable_a to_o the_o notion_n dr._n twiss_n their_o chairman_n have_v of_o this_o matter_n as_o appear_v from_o his_o letter_n direct_v to_o mr._n mede_n date_v july_n 27._o 1635._o it_o be_v the_o 59_o in_o the_o collection_n in_o which_o he_o give_v this_o censure_n of_o

the_o mount_n the_o woman_n speak_v of_o but_o as_o to_o the_o outward_a gesture_n i_o doubt_v i_o shall_v prove_v a_o novice_n as_o long_o as_o i_o breath_n and_o we_o affect_v not_o to_o make_v ostentation_n of_o our_o devotion_n in_o the_o face_n of_o the_o world_n the_o rather_o because_o thereby_o we_o draw_v upon_o ourselves_o the_o censure_n of_o hypocrisy_n and_o sometime_o if_o a_o man_n lift_v up_o his_o eye_n he_o be_v censure_v as_o a_o p._n i_o confess_v there_o be_v no_o outward_a gesture_n of_o devotion_n which_o may_v not_o be_v as_o handsome_o perform_v by_o as_o
