SE RM. 4 Trlumph of Faith _· j ~ varictth the Nature of fhe Rods; fo as ah Intentt· on to take fatisfaClory Vengeance on t~e Repro.;. bate, fpecifieth. his Rod, and maketh. 1_t Pumf_hment ot black Wrath, of Salt and unm1xed Jufhce on him: And this Intention is ah eifential Ingredient in fatisfaEtory Puni.fhment. God writeth and 1 engraveth upon the Toothach of a Reprobate, a P~rcel of Hell ; and he ft:ampeth upon burning- ·· quick, rackjng and torturing? the Engravfng of Heaven, ot Mercy and Lovmg-kmdnefs, in .the Bdiever.
