PREFACE.

THE following pages are extracted from the Scriptures only. The verbal alterations are very few, and when a word is occasionally added, it is chiefly for the purpose of connecting distant portions of the same subject. A few explanatory notes are inserted where the sense of the text may not be quite clear to some readers.

The extracts have been made with the desire of leading persons of all ranks, who profess their belief in the Scriptures, as oracles of God, to consider whether they are really endeavouring to frame their lives according to Scripture rules.

[ocr errors]

Texts, therefore, that have reference to practice, have been alone selected. Others that might awaken theological or controversial discussion, it was thought better to omit.

PRECEPTS

FOR THE

CONDUCT OF LIFE.

FROM THE PENTATEUCH." The Lord thy God shall reign for ever and ever. God spake these words: Thou shalt have no other Gods but me.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

Remember the Sabbath day to keep it

holy.

1 The five books of Moses : Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.
