In three other places there was a word wanting in the Author's Manuscript, and what word was plainly fit to be inserted, I have enclosed in a different letter in these two crotchets [], and accordingly given notice thereof in the mar­gins.Which I here intimate as an Instance of that Diligence and Fidelity I thought my self bound to use in the preparing these Papers for the Press; en­deavouring all along so to deal herein as I my self would be dealt with in the like circumstances, as being mindful of that Rule of our Saviour Christ; A most equi­table and obliging Rule, the observance whereof (besides the good effect it would have as to the publick interest of Learning, as in the particular case for which I here remember it) would have a propitious and prevailing in­fluence to the bettering of all the affairs and transactions of humane life.

And therefore in some places I found it absolutely necessary to enlarge the Translations, and so to improve them that they might seem also a little Commentary upon some Quotations out of the Fathers and Councils, particularly such as related to Ecclesiastical Anti­quities, which would otherwise have been too obscure and impossible to be un­derstood by every Reader: a in the ancient Church.This care (though not over-ea­sie) I have found upon trial not to be needless, (it being ordinary (and scarce possible to be otherwise) where there are many Quotations, to mis-write the numbers of some Books or Chapters that are quoted) and being well assured it would be much for the Reader's Benefit, the desire thereof did animate me to this laborious service, which became yet more laborious in that the Authors were not always mention'd, or if the Authors, yet the Book and Chapter were not always express'd: But in this Edition these are all particularly set down, except some among so great a number of Quotations might possibly escape me; but if any were pretermitted, I am sure they were only some short ones, or such as rather added some little ornament to the matter in hand than any necessary support and strength to any of his peculiar and principal Noti­ons.There is one thing more that is not impertinent to be here advertis'd, That whereas the Author did use, in several of his Chappel-exercises and other Dis­courses delivered in publick, to quote the as judging it perhaps more fit and useful to quote them in a Language which might be understood by all that heard him, even by the younger Students, than to make an astonishing clatter with many words of a strange sound and of an unknown sense to some in the Auditory: I thought it would be most for the advantage of this Edition, (now that the forementioned reason of his then quoting in Latine did cease, his Discourses being now exposed to the publick view) to set down these Authorities (all, or part of them) in their own Language, especially where it is more significant and emphatical. where he relates the several opinions of some Hebrew Doctors concerning there is set down in the margins what I thought might give far­ther light to his Observations; besides a summary account of the Author's Me­thod in those Discourses set all along in the margins.Nor do I know of any one Tract, or Fragment of a Tract, that contain'd any Notion worthy of the Author, that is not brought into this Edition in Book V. But if the mini­stration of Death written and engraven in stones was glorious—How shall not the ministra­tion of the Spirit be rather glorious.which consists of upon; but whether he perfected his intentions, or only laid in some general materials for such a purpose in some other Papers, (some such thing seems to be intimated) appears not to me from any Papers of his that have come to my hands: Howsoever it may not be amiss, but rather a gratification to some, to set down here those Passages of Scripture which he had made choice of as fit objects for his deep-searching Thoughts to be exercis'd upon. or Discourses, perfected by him upon these Scriptures, be in the possession of any worthy persons, (for the Author was very communicative of his Papers) it is both desired and hoped that they would impart them for the common benefit.5.That upon the View of all the Author's Writings, it seem'd most ac­commodate for the Reader's benefit, that they should be digested into as every one knows that is ac­quainted with that excellent Author:) yet because where these Notions are repeated by him in other Tracts, they are express'd with some variety, and sometimes with farther advantage and clearness; I thought it safest not to leave out any thing, nor to go about to contract them: For the same Noti­ons being represented with some enlargements or some difference of expressi­on, may haply enlighten and affect some Readers in this form of words, others in another.

For that all that care (how wearisome soever) was no less than necessary, may appear from what I can aver with truth and soberness, That in several of these Posthumous pieces I found that (either through the hast or of the Scribe, or through his mistaking the Author's hand, or for what other reason I affect not to enquire) there were too many aberrations from the Original: Sometimes a line or more being left out; elsewhere some words omitted or mistaken, and others substituted in the room thereof, to the impairing at least of the Sense.

And the like accommodation of the Rea­der is endeavour'd (not only as to the forementioned Treatises, but) as to the rest of his Works, which could not be without great inconvenience divided into as also by what is set in the top of every Page, which doth summarily import what is contain'd therein.6.
