[Numb. 1057, THURSDAY, April ig. COUNTRY NEWS. Sherborne, 4p>'il 14. Poor woman. in the parifh of Charlton A�m, near Somerton, Som&fet, was lately delivered'^ a male child that has gjpon each hand five fingers and a thumb, and uponieach foot fix toes. The boy is like to live ; I mylelf baptized him the fame-day he was born at the church. Ben KebbV> Vicar. On Sunday^night and Monday morning the waters were vCry high in fome places.   A man was drowned near Crewkeme, though he had two companions with him-_   _ LONDON. Yefterday a Court of Directors was held at the India-houfe iriLeadenhall-ftreet, in order to fettle the Committees, &c. for the enfi|ing year, when the following Gentfetherij viz..

But if I tary long, that thou mayeft yet know how thou oughteft to behaVe thyfelf in the Houfe of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar, and ground of trueth. And without controverfie, great is the myf-terie of Godlinefs, nvbicb is, God is manifested in the flefti juftified in the fpirit, feen of Angels, preached unto the Gentiles', beleeued on in the world, and receiued up in glory. King James's Bible. Thefe things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee fhortly. But if I tarry long, that thou maieft know how thou oughteft to behave thyfelf. in the Houfe of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. And without controverfie, greatiis the myf-tery of godlinefs: God was manifeft in the fleih, juftified in the fpirit, feen of Angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. And thus all the fucceeding tranflations fince. Now the Rhemifh reading-as above, to wit, And manifeftly it is a great facrament of piety tvbicb was manifefted," &c. is clearly Calculated �0 ferve a peculiar coclrine only, and juftified 'by no manufcript whatever of either "6i or cE; for according to this tranf-lation, their Greek text muft have bten either O or H, as relative to the antecedent p,vrr,%ur or tvtr&tiu- there being ttnfortunately no other ar.teced'eetin the whole context to which it can with -aqy degree of propriety otherwife refer.  . : The' fame difficulty likewife occurs in the fuppofed-reading of OS, for this again will' relate tp;neicher ywr^m nor Iwfsla, and for my own part. I can find no other mafculine antecedent in the whole paflage, bat either olfcs?, Sio{, ;on f t;A@-; and with neither of thefe can it by-reference make fo much as common, fenfe ; therefore what pretence there! -can-be, to fuppofe'OS to have been the reading, and^ not' cS, unlefs through either Arrian or So-ciniah pravity,"fo to make nonfenfe of the whole, I own I am at a lofs to guefs, , Now the' reading of Queen Elizabeth's Bible is made perfectly clear, and intelligible, by the eafy interpo'fitiori of the words, which is, that is to Jay, t5t. en, ori. e. and which, in King James's, and all our prefent Bibjes, muft naturally be implied, and underftood, if not expre-ffed, and then the fenfe is-obvious to every one., which is, that in the enumerated particulars following, " -That God w?.s manifefted in the fleih, juftified in the fpirit," &c. lies this myftery of godlinefs'before fpoken of; and truly a great myftery indeed it is, and much above the comprehension ef man's natural.faculties to conceive. But the fear, �fbrfocth, is, that if we are to read cE, we fhpuld thereby give too great glory and honour, and attribute too much Godhood to our Saviour Chrift : Mow, fure-ly, it is neither a forced, a new, nor an un-fcriptural. way 9f fpeaking, to call Chrift by the name of God, or God the Son ; for nothing is more dearly to be proved from fcrip-ture, than that it was he that hsd all along a�ted as the God of the O'd Teftamer.ty by whom the worlds were framed, by whom the law was given from Sinai; and by whom the Prophets fpake and prophefied, as is evident from the whole tenour of the firft chapter of the Epiftle to the Hebrews, and- many other parts of fcripture befides. Thus, again, under the New Teftarnent Difpenfation, Marth. i. -23. Thou /halt call his name Emanuel, or Godixjiih us.  John i. 1. The Word nvas God.   ColofT. ii. g. Secavji in him-d-doelkib all the fullnejs cf Godhood  bodily. 1 Tim. ii. 3. For this is acceptable in ikijight of Gtd our Sa-viour.   Therefore is this one con-fiderable part of the revelation made to. us in the Gofpel, That he who had fo heretofore ' acted in the power and majefty of God, was the  on of God, and had' a Father, between whpm and us'he had taken upon him-to, be Mediator, as fays the text, 1 Tim. ii. r. There--is one Mediator between God arid Men, the Man ' Chrift J ejus. And again, Galat. Hi. 20. Navj a Mediator is not a Mediator ef or?er but. God is one, i. e. one of the parties ; and,, as was faad-before, man, or mankind-the other.   And now in this light alfo are we paraphraftically to' explain that famous paffage in the Philipp. '2. 6.    O? Iv ysjetfi) BsS uirdeyjiJ-j if% Kfyraypx.* "yxa-ctlo- to �ivo;i l&a.
