AWife Man's Heart difcerneth both Time and Judgment ; and t^ere is a Seafon, in which thofe who are moft remote from an Habit-of Seriousness, will yet liften to a Well-meaner endeavouring, inoffenfively, with Modefty and Humility, to give ferious Advice. If I miftake not, tlie prefent Circumftances of this Nation call on every wife, efpecially religious Man, tq be ferious; and every Lover of his Country would now wilh to fee a Reformation from thofe National Sins which lie upon us, and which, if not removed, (chough God ftiould now grant us Profperity) will certainly, fooner or later, bring down dreadful Evils, if not Deftrudlion, I fuppofe all that have ^any Religion will agree in this Truth, That National Sins are likely to bring down National Judgments; and all who have thought of the Matter, further own, that fuch Sins are to be ftnmd aitfong'Ss: But few feem to lay it to Heart, or be aware of the Con-clufion,-therefore ive are to expeil (urdefs vi'e repent) fignal Judgments to light on us. Perhaps if the Inhabitants could be brought to attend to the Fa�l, and made to fee that we are indeed exceedingly guilty, confidered as a Com-munity and Kingdom, they would be awakened to fome q Concerh ; at leaft, the Virtuous and Religious would be excited (tho' they defpaired of Reformation through th^ir ^ own Endeavours) to humble themfelves before God, and ^ feek earneftly to him to effed the happy Change, without which we rauft, fooner or later, be ruined : And who can tell but God will hear the fervent Prayer of the R^||i-  teous ? fince his Word faith, it availed mttch. Let ihe therefore touch on few Things which ivill difcover when a Kingdom, as fu,h, is guilty before Gofc, and in danger, of the dreadful Effefts of his Anger.-^^ Not only is it fo, when' the Rulers enadt Laws direftly contrary to the Divitie Law, and Reafoh of Things; Jeroboam, Ahab, &c. of ofd eftabliftied Idoktry, and turned their Subjects from the Worfhip of Jehovah: Bhc aifo, � . - ~ � A DVERTISEMEN TSiare taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's CofFee-House, in Lombard-Street.
