No letfe, "yea far l'JM)re welcome are tbofe, who bring the glad tydings of 'the Gofpel, and the blcffed peace of a mediator, 10 the troubled !inner, who was bound and fettered in his corifcience-, not able to take any c,omforr, fpi• , rituaH or tcmpora\l,in any thing; or tlfe its made an allufion to the year of Jub.ilee, which was amofl acceptable time to all poor indebted pcrfons, for then was a generall r.e!~afe l This is to fhcw, how that pardon of finae, and rcconc-tltatum with God, is highly efieemed only by fucb, as· are · even overwhelmed with the guilt of their finne, and ·are wholly· cafl down with the apprebenfion of Gods difpleafure, and his frowns: We have two pregnant examples for t:his, the one. 1 in David," Pfal.5 I• who being greatly wounded within him for the finnes he bad committed, and finding no 'reft .for his bones, bow affecHonatcly· doth he pray-again and again for this wafuing and cleanfing ? Oh wehad not had fuch aPfalm of fo much fpirituall hungring and longing after Gods mercyi if he had. not been deeply affiided becaufe of his finne.
