SINCE you are about to return to the Business of your Ordinary Calling, discharge it with a good Conscience, and behave your selves after such a manner, that whilst you are labouring for Temporal Things, you neglect not the Eternal. . , ;. = .. ,i: t

You Magistrates, take Care what you do, for you do not execute Justice as from Man, but from God, who fits in Judgment in the midst of You. Let the Fear of the Lord be therefore with you, for with God there is no Iniquity, nor Acceptance with Persons. i<c-L- -f.

You People, be subject to the Higher Powers, not only for the Fear of Wrath, but also for Conscience sake; - You Fathers and Mothers, breed up your Children in the Instruction and Correction of the Lord. And you Children, obey your Fathers and Mothers in all Things in the Lord, for this is right.

You Husbands, love your Wives, and be not provoked against them, hut behave your selves towards them with Discretion: And you Wives submit your selves to your Husbands as to the Lord.

You Masters, do Justice and Equity to your Servants, knowing that you also have a Master in Heaven. And you Servants, obey your Masters in the Simplicity of your Heart, as unto Christ, not as EyeServants, or desiring only to please Man, but doing heartily the Will of God, as Servants of Jesus Christ.

You Merchants, follow the Rules of Justice, Equity and Honesty.

You Handicrafts and Husbandmen, labour faithfully in your Calling, knowing that every one of you shall receive of the Lord according to what he has done. V.K-srv

You Old Men, be* sober, grave, prudent, sound in Faith and in Charity. And you Young Men, be moderate and humble, and remember your Creator in the Days of your Youth. ;i:. j Z".

Let those that are afflicted, be as if they did not weep\ and thole that rejoice, as if they were without Joy\ and those that use the World, as not abusing it; for the Fashion ofthis World pasieth away.

My Brethren, Love not the World, nor the Things that are in the World j for if any one loves the World, the Love of the Father is

not not in him •, for the World pafleth away ami the Lusts thereof, but he that doth the Will of God abideth for ever. 34 7>»Ev Et* i N G Service.
