sow, Luke xix. 22. And the tongue is à fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setseth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be, Jam. iii. 6-10. And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven, Rev. xiii. 5, 6.

VER. 19.

Εκ γὰς τῆς καρδίας ἐξέρχοντα διαλογισμοὶ πονηροί, φόνοι, μοιχεῖαι, πορνείαι, κλοπαί, ψευδομαρτυρίαι, βλασφημίαι :

For out of the heart proceed bevil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: a See on clause 1.ver. 11. chap. vii. b And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? Matt. ix. 4. I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love, Psal. cxix. 113. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon, Isa. lv. 7. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths, lix. 7. O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee? Jer. iv. 14. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee, Acts viii. 22. Let no man say when he is tempted,

A. D. 32.

I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death, Jam. i. 13-15. VER. 20.

Ταῦτά ἐστι τὰ κοινοῦντα τὸν ἄνθρωπον· τὸ δὲ ἀνίπτοις χερσὶ φαγεῖν, οὐ κοινοῖ τὸν veganov.

These are the things a which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

a Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are, 1 Cor. iii. 16, 17. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.

Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunk

ards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God, vi. 9-11. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's, 1820. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the

b Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread, ver. 2. Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup, and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also, xxiii. 25, 26. For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables, Mark, vii. 3, 4. And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedYe fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? Luke xi. 38-40.

a And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food, Gen. xlii. 7.

Unto thee will I cry, O LORD, my rock; be not silent to me : lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit, Psal. xxviii. 1.

But he answered and said, a I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house

a These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, Matt. x. 5-6. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities, Acts iii. 25, 26. Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles, xiii. 46. Now say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers, Rom. xv. 8.

And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace : but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David, Matt. xx. 31. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me, Gen. xxxii. 26. Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Beth-el, and there he spake with us, Hos. xii. 4. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened, Luke xi. 8-10. And he spake a parable unto them

But he answered and said, aIt is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

a But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord; yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs, Mark vii. 27, 28. Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises, Rom. ix. 4. We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, Gal. ii. 15. That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world, Eph. ii. 12.

And she said, a Truth, Lord: byet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master's table.

a The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed, Matt. viii. 8. I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant : for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands, Gen. xxxii. 10. Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no farther, Job xl. 4, 5. I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me,

which I knew not. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. I have heard of thee by the hearing the ear but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes, xlii. 2-6. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me, Psal. li. 4, 5. 0 my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies, Dan. ix. 18. Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion

sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed, Luke vii. 6, 7. And the Publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner, xviii. 13. But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom, xxiii. 40-42. God forbid yea, let God be true, but every man a liar : as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged, Rom. iii. 4. Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God, 19. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God, 1 Cor. xv. 8, 9.

A. D. 32.

b That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust, Matt. v. 45. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also, Rom. iii. 29. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him, x. 12. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, Eph. iii. 8. And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God, 19.

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, a great is thy faith: bbe it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

a When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel, Matt. viii. 10. Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me, I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed, 1 Sam. ii. 30. And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith, Luke xvii. 5. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God, Rom. iv. 19, 20. We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth, 2 Thess. i. 3.

b And Jesus said unto the centurian, Go thy way; and as thou hast

believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the self same hour, Matt. viii. 13. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it, ix. 29, 30. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague, Mark v. 34. And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed, vii. 29, 30. Jesus |

said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief, ix. 23, 24. When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel, Luke vii. 9. And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee: go in peace, 50. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God, xviii. 42, 43. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour, the fever left him. So the tau

ther knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house, John iv. 50-53.
