The

Sermon
thy
cheife treafüre,
that's the
2d
thing.

Thirdly,
confider what
is
thy
cheife
joy
&
delight,
what
is
thy
life,
(I
put
them
together;
for
that
which
is
a
mans
chiefe
joy
indeed
,
is
his
life.) For
we
know
life
is
nothing
elfe
but
vilaijpy
that
the heart hath, whereby
it
is
nou-
ri1
d
-an_d
fed
as
it
were, for
life
is
not to
haue
body
and
foule
joyned together,
to
be
a
living
mein
that
fence
we vfiially
take
lifc,for
if
that
were
life,
then
the
men
in
hell
Mould
nit
bee
Paid
to
dy
the
death,for
you
know
in
hell
there
is a
conjunction
of
foule
&
body
,
and
yet
men
are
not
fayd
to hue
there;for
it
is
death which
is
the
punifhment
offinne
;
&
indeed you
shall
finde
that
there
is
fomething
a
mans
heart
cleaues
vnto, wherein
hee
rejoyceth,
which
is
the
fame
with
his life.
Therefore
looke
as
the
Soule enlivens
the
body,fo
the
conjunaion
of,
the
prefent things
that
he
reckons his
joy,that
is
his
life,
hee
cannot
liue
without
it.
Now
if
¿hrifl
be
thy
chiefe
joy, thou wilt
finde this
that
thou
canfl
not
liue
without
him
,
as
men
are
wont
to
fay
of
their
delights
;
Such
a
man
cannot
flue
without
fuch
a
thing,
fo
it
is
true
of
every man
that
hath
taken
Chrifl,he
is
not
able
to
liue
without
him
.
This
life
is
no life, and
therefore
if
there
be
but
feparation betweene
thee and
him,if
mans
confcience be
as
it
were
clouded
fora
time,
he findes
no refl,he
doth
as
the
Spoufe
in
the
Canticles,Sbe
fecks
fro
one
place
to
another,
and,;sues her
