DISCOURSE LXXI.

Whatsoever things are just.

PHIL. iv. 8.
Whatsoever things are juft.

O

UR English translation is a little too short

for the Greek ; the word in the Greek doth

comprehend two things; that which in our English language we call just, and that which we call equal. Justice and equity, I know often times are indifferently used for the self-fame thing ; but if we speak strictly and exactly, then they are to be distinguished : for whatsoever either reason or law will admit, that may pass for just ; but equity will take all things into consideration, that do accompany the case ; and if the case require it, equity will abate of that which itrict right will afford. Therefore we say that what we call equity, is to moderate strict right : and indeed strict right may be down-right injury and wrong ; but equity is the moderator.

Sometimes you have just, and no cquity on the other side ; and then just is all in all. But just is not right, if there be equity on the other side. For where there is equity in the case, equity rules, and just vails. Strict right is not to be stood upon by persons of reason and conscience, where equity calls Vol. IV.
