Ezekiel xviii. 20, 28.

TH Hus faith the Lord God: The foul that finneth the fame fhall die: the fon fhall not bear the iniquity of the father, nor the father the iniquity of the fon. The righteousness of the righteous man fhall be upon himself, and the wickednefs of the wicked man upon himself. But if the wicked man fhall repent of all the fins he hath committed, and obferve all my precepts, and do judgment and righteousness, he shall certainly live, and not die. All the wickednefs he hath wrought, I will not remember: by the righteoufnefs he hath done, fhall he live. Is

it my will that the finner fhould die, faith the Lord God? Is it not rather that he be converted from his ways and live? But if the righteous man fhall

turn away from his righteoufnefs, and commit iniquity according to all the abominations commonly practifed by the wicked, fhall he live? All the righteousness he hath done, shall be forgot: in the tranfgreffion he hath fallen into, and in the fin he hath committed, fhall he die. But you have faid: The way of the Lord is not juft. Hearken therefore, O houfe of Ifrael: Is it my way that is not juft; or, are they not rather your ways that are wicked? For, when the righteous man fhall depart from his righteoufnefs, and work iniquity, in it fhall hedie: in the unrighteoufnefs he hath wrought, fhall he die. And when the wicked man fhall forfake the iniquity he hath committed, and do judgment and righteoufnefs, he fhall reftore life to his foul. For when he reflecteth, and departeth from all the iniquities he had committed, he hall certainly live, and not die, faith the Lord Almighty.

T that time: There was a feftival of the Jews,
and Jefus went up to Jerufalem. Now there
is at Jerufalem by the Sheep-gate a pool, called in
the Hebrew tongue, Bethfaida, that hath five
porches. In thefe lay great numbers of fick, of
blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving
of the water. For an Angel of the Lord at a cer-
tain time defcended into this pool, and the water
was put in motion. And he who firft went in, af-
ter the water was put in motion, was healed of his
infirmity, whatfoever it was. Now there was a
man there, who had been eight and thirty years un-
der his infirmity. Whom when Jefus faw lying,.
and knew he had been a long time ill, he faith to

him: Wouldst thou be made whole? The fick man answered him: Lord I have no one to put me into the pool, when the water is put in motion: fo that while I am coming, another fteppeth in before me. Jefus faith to him: Rife, take up thy bed, and walk. And forthwith the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked. And that day was the Sabbath. The Jews therefore faid to him that was cured: It is the Sabbath-day; it is not therefore lawful for thee to carry thy bed. He anfwered them: He, who healed me, faid to me: Take up thy bed and walk. Then they afked him : Who is that man, that faid to thee: Take up thy

bed and walk? But he that was healed knew not who it was for fefus had withdrawn himself from the crowd that was ftanding in the place. Afterwards fefus found him in the temple, and faid to him: Behold thou art made whole; fin now no more, left fomething worfe befall thee. The man went away and told the Jews, that it was Jefus,

who had made him whole.
