Chap. S. An Eiepofrtion upon the Rookof j O B. Verf. verle he charges that they fhould, not fhout or makea noífe with their voice till the feventh day, becaufe that was defigned for the dayof vif ory, the day when the wall fhould fall : You _hall not fhout nor make any noife withyour voice, neither_hall any r ordpro- ceed out ofyour mouths,till the day I bidyoufhout,thenfhallye /bout. salaam (Numb.e3.2z.)confeffes he could not curfè IJsel, becaufè the fhout of aKingwas amongft them. It is this word. That shout of a King may be underftood three wayes. Firft, That it was a shout as Kings ufed to have in their re- ception and coronation; Such a ¡hoot, faith he, there is among this people, as ifa King were to be received and crowned. Thus when Samuel brought Saul out,whom he had annointed for King and laid, Seeye him whom the Lordbath cho(en, that there if n one like him arrtong all the people ? And all thepeople _Pouted, andfaid, Godfave the King, z Sam. i o. 24.. Or fecondly, It noteth fuch a (bout as is in an army, where a King inperfon is a leader or vidour.

Hence we may obferve,;r,,r_;qfro!,c Firft,7hat as joy is theportion ofthe people of Goct, fir in good time rare: tbeyfoall receive.their portion. He willnot calf off a.perfeet man,till he fill his mouth with joy,and his lips with rejoycing. Joy is their due, and joy they (hall, have.
