Ap: 30: 82. 2. Sam: 7. Davids case. Lord I find thy love thy christ is the bottom of all hope and good: its for thy words sake, and that reference you set him into me, that you have brought me thus far. but lord all blessings end in yourself, and therefore my heart seeing this pours out itself, thy christ may stand near my house as the root and for his sake as they belong to him you would bless them, and give me the joy to see them blessed with him for this is all my salvation, that my soul presses after for me and them.
