The right manner of driving- nicrh God had appointed : Upon that the fireof Gods wrath broke out upon them, and flew them both prefenrly in the very San- diary before all the people, for it was a folemn time : being the beginning of the folemn Confecration of the Prieft-hood. - Upon chis,che fpirit of .Aaron couldnot but be exceedingly trou- bled,to fee his two Sons thus ftruck. Now 111Ofes comes to him and faith, This is that which the Lord ipake, I will beJantlified in them that draw nigh me, andbefore all the people I avil be rifled. Andupon this, ,Aaron held his peace. We read that once fire came down fromHeaven in a way of Mercy to confume the Sacrifices : but now fire comes down from Heaven in a way of Judgment to confume the Sacrificers, even Nadab and ,Abihu : they were .AaronSons, the Sons ofa godly man, the Sons of the High-Prieft, they were his eldeft Sons, for Aaron hadocher Sons befides Nadab and Abihu, leaciar and Ithamar, but thefe werehis two eldeft Sons : they were two tongmen, they were ftruck in the very primeof their age, they were two that were newly confecrated in the Prieffs Office,for fo you find in the 9. Chap. And theywere two men ./39,,,-e-Z ofrenown in theCountry,and before all the people of/ELfie two . men that God had much honored heretofore ; as you final find in Exod. Chap. 24. and thebeginning ; thisNadab and Abihu were men of great repute, andgreat renown, that God did much honor in former times ; for when God called 'Moles and Aaron with the Elders tocome tohim, he Tingles out Nadab and Abi- bat amougft the refl., and names them. And be Paid untocillfo- fes, Come up unto the Lord, thou and Aaron, Nadab and A- bihu,and '7o.of the Elders ofIfrael. 'Moles and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu are only named, and then 7o. of the Elders in general, but 'More' Aaron,Nadab,and Abihu, as if thefe were the four eminent menof renown among all the people of Ifrael, he names noneof the7o. Elderi but thefe two, befides 'Mfrs and Aaron : therefore thefe two that wereconfumed by ftrange fire, were rem; novvnedmen, and newly confecrated into their Office. What was theirfin ? Their fin it was offeringof grange fire,fo the text faith that they offeredfirangefire,which God commanded them nor, in the beginning of the Chapter. But

to God in Worfhip. But had Godever forbidden it ? Where do we find that eve God had forbidden them to offer ftrange Fire, or appointed that they should offer only onekind of Fire ? There is no text of Scri ture that you can find from the be inning of gene if to this p ace, w ere a at ai in terminis io man words expre ou a o er no re zit one 14n o re. An yet ere r e are confuted by Fire fromGod for offerin thane Fire. I find in t e 5 C7. o xo ver. 9. that there they were or widen offering !grange Incenfe, but I do nor find that they were foL- biden offering ftrange Fire. In Levit 6. i and divers verfes in that Chapteer we find that God had appointed that they thould keep contiantly theFire on the Altar burning, and never to let it go out : Now that was (it Teems) Gods intention that there- fore they fhouldmake ufe ofthat Fire, and that Fire only. God would have them to pick out his meaning : God fenc Fire down from Heaven upon the Altar, fo in the latter end ache 9. Chap. God fent down Fire from Heaven, and gave them a charge to keep that Fire on the Altar confiantly, and never to let it goout :. fo chat it teems God would have them pick outhis meaning, that becaute he had fent downFire from Heaven upon the Altar, and gave them power tokeep that contently, God would have them therefore to underfland, that what Incenfe or Sacrifice he would have theufe ofFire in, it timid be only that Fire and no other, thou h God did never fa to them diredl in thefe words, You Pall make tile of this fire an no other, but God would have them tounderfland this. That's their fin therefore in offeringof ftrange Fire. Now. Firecomes from the Lord anddot h continue them. Some think this Vire came from the Altar, but furely is could not beany ordinary Fire that did confume gZadab and Abihu at this time : for you that find in the next vet. tomy text, That thebo, dies of Wadal, and Abihuwere not confumed by the fire, no, not their cloaths,they werekird by the fire and yet their cloathsWere whol, therefore it was not an ordinary Fire,it was lame Cceleftial Fire (truck into them to flay them, for fo faiththe text in the 4. ver.

The right manner ofdrawing nigh With afudden death, and that in the pretence of the Lord : fuci, a death as God had never threatned in the Word before, God had never threatned the Prieffs and faid, If you offer ftrange Fireyou (hall be consumed by Fire : But yet God (mires them with death by Fire,theyhad not time to leek God,no not fo much ( as we ufe to fay ) as to fay, Lord have mercy upon me: they had no time to promife amendment ac all : now upon this heavy judgment, the heart of Aaron could not poffibly but be very much troubled, yea and the fpirit of 'Wei coo, for '1114e' was their Unkle, and .Aaron their father,they could not but be excee- dingly much grieved : but glaref being the brother of .Aaron,fee- ing his fpirit (noqueftion) exceedingly tr-c-aled, bein, under fuch a fad affliaion, and that fuch a Godly man even as ttlaron was fhould have fuch a fad judgment befit his children : 'Mops comes and fpeaks comfortably to him, and labors to fupport his fpirit: And how doch he do it ? He comes not as ordinarily youLife to vitit dour brethren, Oh youmu be content with this : No? but becomes and applies the Word of God, and flews how. God muff be fanttified ; andwilTat he comes to quiet he heart of his brother Aaron. This is that which the Lord bath if;f.ke faith a/oref : He fears to ftay the heart of his brother with that which God fpake. 'But where do we find that god fpake this? It's hard to find in any Scripture theft very words in termini, before this time : and therefore Augultin thinks it was only the word Godfpake, but not written, and lo they had it from hand to hand by tradition as many other things, as the Prophefie of "Enoch that the Apoftle Jude fpeaks of youdo not find it writ- ten in the Book of God, and yet the Apoftle fpeaks of it, fo that indeed it was from hand to hand : yea and we find in .he new Teftament when Paul [peaks of a thing that Chrift should fay ;,how chat our Lord faith, It is amore bleffed thing to give than-tOi*eirve ; you find it recorded in the Golpels that Chuff laid So:, this is that which the Lord faid, though it was not Wri0Afrom thebeginningof genetis to this very places or otherwifethough it be not recorded in exprefs tames, yet fomthing is recorded to the fame purpofe and eifett : and fo it. may feem tohave reference to that Scripture Exod. 29.43. there . we

In thofe that are nighme :71 Nighones, fo it may be read : that is efpecially the (Prieffs that did approach to God. (Dielt, 42. 13. they approach to God efpecially. But it is meant generally of all thofe that fhal have to deal in my Worfbip, whofoever than come to Worfhip me, let them look to ic, they muft fantlifie my Name, they muft fo demean themfelvas in my Worship, as to hold forth my Name to be Vol, : or otherwife, I will manifeft my Pelf againft them in the waies of Judgment, for I will ap- pear to be a `Holy God, I Wil have the gloryof mySlolinerr one way or other (faithGod ) in thofe that come neer Me; As if God should fay, Though it's otherwife with men, they indeed will be ready to favor thole that are neer them, but I will not do fo. Men will sooner pals by the offences of thole that are neer them, than thofe that are not As fuppofe that a ftranger commits an offence,you wouldbe fevere towards him ; but fup- pofe it were oneof your own Cdildren, or Kinfmen, what would youdo then ? Do not we fee that men will rather favor their own Kindred than ftrangers, though the offence be the fame ? ut I will not do fo faith God. Suppofe it be one of your own family, wil not yoube ready to excuse them ? Suppofe it were your own Child that fhould commit filch an offence, Oh ! what friends would you make to take him off from puthfhtnent ? Thoughmen would do fo towards their own, yet be bitterand fe- vere towards itrangers a Yet 1 wil not be fo laith God ; Let thofe- thag

to god in Worfhip. that are neer me look to it, I will be fauttified by them. I will be fantified in thole that draw neer me. Now upon this, when Wofef laid thus, That God would be fanttified in thole char draw neer him : this was 111ofes fcope to Aaron, as if 'Moles fhould fay Aaron though I confefs the hand of God is heavy upon you this day : Yet it is fit for you to fub- mit to God, 'cis tit that God fhould be glorified what ever be- comes ofyou ; you are deare to God,bur Gods Name is dearer to him then you are ::what ever the liVes of your Ions were, yet it is tic that God should be honored, and his Name Scznaified what ever become of your Sons, or of your Comforts, and therefore let your heart be quieced,you have had a great lots and afilidionupon you ; but God bath had glory ; God hash glo- rified himfelf. How hath God glorified himfelf ? Very much by this way ; for God by this way have done an att to make al the People of the Land fear before him ; to caufe them to Worfhip himwith al reverance. All the people of the Land teeing fuch a Judgment as this, and hearing of it ; they will learn for ever to fear and reverance this God they wil fay, How (hall we appear before this (Holy God ? We had need take heed how we appear in his pretence, and Worpip him according to the way that He Himfelf would be Worfbzped ; As if 'More" fhould fay, This Honor that God hath by this tneanes in the hearts of his people ; it is that that you thould account a greater good than the Lives of your Children,what ever they are. This is the fcope of 'Moles fpeech toAaron. Now upon this the Text faith: Aaron heldhispeace :1 Hewas filenced. It may be before, He was exprelling himfelf in grief, and forrow'd exceeding much in words ; but now he was quiet and had nothing to fay : he did by his filence acknowledg his Children were deer to him, but it's fit that God fhould be glorified what ever becomes of his Children, and therefore Aaronholds his peace. But the word that is here trantlated, his peace, It hath more in it than tneerfilence; for the Hebrews have another word that fignifie meer filence of speech : but this fignifies, a flaying of the heart,that it doch not further proceed in any trouble of fpirit, a filence in the very heart, ftaying of it ; a flaying of the B 4 tions 7

The right manner ofdrawing nigh tions of the Heart. I find the fame word to beufed inScripture, when joibua laid to theSun, fiandflil flay thy felf on gibeon, yof 10. rz. It is the fame word that is here tranflated,and .Aaron held his peace, that is, he was flayed from further vexing or trou- bling of himtelf or being difquieted ; whereas his Heart was in a thong violent motion o Now glees fpeech did flop him, and gave a flop to his Heart to make it nand flit in a wonderful manner, As theSun, when 70pua fpake to it tonand flit. As if theLord fhould have fpoken to his Heart, Aaron, thy heart is in a mighty thongmotion, but confider that I muff be fandified in thole that draw nigh me; and let all thole motions of chy Heart be (tor and quiet. Thus nowyou fee the meaningof the Scripture, and the Scopeair. Now in this Scripture you have thefe Threefpecial and notable Points. a That in worfhipofgod, there is adrawingnigh unto Sim. 2 That when rve do drawnigh to god, wefhould take, heed to ourfelves that wefanEfife godsName. 3 Ifwedo not fanEfifie godsName in our drawings nigh to Slim, then certainly godwilfanEfifte his onNameupon us. Thefe are the Three Points that I intend tohandle ; And efpe.. daily the fecond to handle largely among you. I confefs upon another occafion in one Sermon I have fpoke our of thefe words, but now I intend nor only in general, to thew you how you fhould fanttifie Gods Name in Worjhip, but likewife in the parti- cular Alts of Worfhip : As fandifyinp,His N__ ame in Prayer, in ,Receivir2gthe Sacrament, in beam the Word ; in the feveral chief partsof the Woribipot Goa, ow his Name fhould be fan- dified : For in al thefe you do draw nigh to God. And for that end I have pitch'dmy thoughts upon this Scripture. But before I come zo thefe Three great Points, that are the principal Points in the words read unto you ; I fha I take updivers other Notes of obfervation chat lie up anddown as it were fcattervd, that are erfgreat ufe, and wil help us further tomake ufe of this Scripture in the other points that lfhal come to afterward, and handle more largely. The firft Note is this, That ingod', Worfhip there mull be no- thing tendred up to god but what he bathcommanded,. voloatfo- &ver we meddle within theWorfhip of god, it mull be 'Oat WC kW a Warrant for out of tioe Wordof cod, Foy
