Sinners, on Rom. 1.17.

Righteousness,

Sometimes stands for moral Obe.

Duty, 849, b, 16. Mat. 5 20. Some-
times the Duty we owe to our
Neighbour, lit. 2. 12. Some-

Promises, in this Sense God is laid
to be faithful and just, 1 Joh. 1.9.

But it appears to me that we ire
oblig'd to set apart one Day in 6-

religious Exercises, because suck a
Rest is a Type of our Eternal Reft
in Heaven, Heb. 4. 4, &t-
and because Isa. 66. 23. is a Pro-
phecy respecting Gospel-Times;
and because, though the Apostle!
took all Opportunities for preach-
ing the Gospel, yet a seventh-Day,
namely, the first Day of the Week,
seems to have been kept by Chri-
stians as a Day of publick Worship
in the Apostles Time. See Lores
