Ver. 31 W


It may not here be improper to add the MAGNIFICENT Representation of the GLORY, MAJESTY, and TERROR with which our SAVIOUR shall appear when he comes to JUDGE the World.

MATTH. XXV. Ver. 31 W HEN the Son of Man shall come in his

V GLORY, and all the holy Angels with him, then shall he sit upon the Throne of his GLORY.

32 And BeFORE him shall be GATHERED all NATIONS; and he shall sePARATE them one from another, as a Shepherd divideth his Sheep from the Goats.

33 And he shall set the Sheep on his Right HAND, but the Goats on the Left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his Right Hand, Come ye BLESSED of my Father, INHERIT the KINGDOM prepared for you from the FOUNDATION of the i WORLD.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the Left Hand, Depart from me ye Cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the Devil and his Angels.

46 And these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT, but the Righteous into LIFE ETERNAL.

10 When he fhall come to be GLORIFIed in his SAINTS, and to be ADMIRED in all them that BELIEVE.

30 For we know him that hath said, VENGEANCE belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the LORD. And again, the LORD shall judge his people.
