Touching the healing of the present
Evil.

Shews (as not unknown their influence)
the better that we may
judge of things to come; from Examples
in vain not recorded of things
past: Achan as his story for one Epitomizes:
By whom the golden Wedge
or Tongue hid, wchwhich trespass until discovered
of his, thus and thus, &c. no
peace or presence of the Lord any
more. So whence as follows, “Cause
the city to know, &c.”
for recovery of
health, to have knowledge of the disease
since the first step thereto.

so much for the better ordering the
Medicine or prescribed Rule: shewing
how in days of those late high Priests
it came to pass Anno Dom. above 36.
By them after what execrable maner
Crucified the Oracles of God
, their late
Altars for that purpose prepared; to
be short, over which a Gyant Crucifix
being erected; “The value not of a
Napkin to cover”
, &c. exposed to the
view of all to kneel before it: like as
in Golgotha that Fridays dismal Day
bowed the knee
: Then his humble
Servants also.

Crown of Thorns

Original as shamefully covered the
Ten Commandment at the East end
plac’d: to their low obeysance at every
turn, least an Eye-sore.

Had contrived under colour of an
Altar Hanging, fastned down to the
wall of course purple Woollen, even
to Ecclipse that Light of Lights:
whereby to cover the Ten Commandments
no obscure business as befel:
Brocht in Litchfield Minster: where
this Monster Table appointed with
the Centurion, armed at all points,
mounted on this Courser: the Beast
worshipt too.

Unsufferable to behold, the one
not more ignominiously exposed, then
the other obscured: to give free passage
to whatsoever abomination.

Whereupon, O accursed, as obliged
for bringing to light the same
Court and City to awaken: Their
Lord Major that year a Litchfield man:
resolved to set some mark upon their
purple Covering, whereon she cast a
Confection made but of Tar, mixt with
wheat Starch, with fair Water heated,

whose fright, post a Sergeant at Arms
was sent down at Candlemas to carry
her up: Carriers unable to pass after
that Summers drought, when as much

her to the Cities Custody; one as it

Prison, infected with those foul

two years sufficiently published or
bruted by that time.

in Scotland: And so much for that
designed place Bethlehems Hospital,

in behalf of that crying cause,
causless Jealousie of hers.

Never that was called to appear
or answer whether Guilty, but surprized
in that sort, or the Adversary against
her appearing: Conscious of their
abominable Cause, of whose proceedingsings B4r 7
by Luke thus recorded: in which
aforesaid City dwelt a Judge, saying
within himself not difficult to judge
when “Though I fear not God nor
reverence Man”
: yet least this never
ceasing Widow by her Writing,

Assessment were mentioned: who by
casting into their “Treasury those two
mites”
, from that seeming Paradox
outstript them all, as Englefield Manor
for one devoured, &c. accompanied
with the unparalleld last troublesom

Famine of Faith a fore-runner of his
coming.

Return shall to the former of those
precious Tables, able to dissolve Millstones:
Like as when rent the Temple-
vail, Stones and Graves unable to contain,tain B4v 8
&c. men whilest more obdurat
as in the Bladder of uncircumcised
Hearts, which nothing penitrates.

Oyes, himself Westminsters Cryer,
in the mean while much People gathered,
several Soils those, proclaims
“Earth, Earth”, in relation to her Ears
not few: how difficult to bring forth
fruit in kinde, three for one miscarrying:
“He that hath ears”, &c.

Which Ten Commandments
lastly how were Restored; although
yielded not to pluck down the
aforesaid Cloth that Altar Ornament,
appointed nevertheless in an Azure
Table
the Law engraven to be in gold
Letters
: Hanged up in all Churches,
bearing date, 0037Anno 37.

To be buried in silence neither,
where by accident in the Prisoners Chamber: B5r 9
Chamber
: when brought into it, beheld
on the wall the two written Tables
in Moses hand coming down out of
the Mount
, the onely Ornament or
Picture there, hang’d up on a Nail:
not long after rent down by the
Keeper; because unto some shewed
or as a token then what done by
them in Churches: not calling to
minde; “As visits unto the third and
fourth Generation, That hates them, so
mercy, shews to Thousands that love his
Commandments”
.

And so return to their sufferings:
