76 Mr. Watfon's Sermon, will hardly believe the Minifter that (hall tell him it than be ill with him ; but it is fo. For is it not ill with that man that hath a curie ? Yea, the curie of God entailed upon him ; Can that man thrive that lives under the curie of God ? Floods of blood and wrath hang over the head ofa wicked man, he is heir toall the plagues written in the Book of God. . All Gods curies are the finners portion ; and ifhe dyeth in his fin, he is fure to have his portion paid him. Wo unto thewicked, every bit of bread he hath, hehath it with a.curfe, 'tis like poifon'd bread given to a dog : every drop of wine he drinketh fwallows down a curie with it. Wo unto thewic- ked ; there is his curfe in a cup, and a curie upon his table. God faith, woe untohim : we read of Beljhazer, Dan. 5. 4, 5. that he did take the wine, and commanded to bring the gold and filver Veffels out of the Temple : then they brought the golden Veffels that were takenout of the Temple, out of the houfe ofGod, that was atjerufaletn, and the King and his Princes, and his Wives, and Concubines drank in them.

'Tis ill with the wicked, not only in his life, but 'tis ill with them at the hour of death, and that in there two refpe&s. i. Death puts an end unto all his comforts, 2.

The fruits thy foul luileth after are de- parted from thee. All things that are dainty, and good, are de- parted from thee ; thevoice of the Harper, Mufician, and Trum- peter (hall he heard nomore in thee. .As'tis fpoken of the deftruftion ofRome, fo you may fayof the Wicked man, no more joy and gladnels, no mere mirth and mu- lick, all a finners fweet fpices, his Scarlet Robes, his Sparkling .Diamonds, theyall at death depart from him.
