But I {hall not flay upon this expofition. For Secondly, Doubtleffe the terrours here fpoken of, were thole inward feares and troubles whichaffaulted lobs fpirit, while he was compaffedwithout with outward troubles. As he was exer- cised with manifold affil &ions both as tohis body and !late, fo his foule, his minds did not efcape untouched ; Nay he was deep- ly, moft deeply wounded there. Terrors are turned upon me. Hence note. A godly man may not only be in.trouble, but under terreur.
