UntitledTHE WORD OF GOD COMPARED TO GOLD. BY BEJAMI KEACH More to he desired are ihey than Gold, yea, than much fine Gold" Psal. xix. 10. The law of thy mouth is better to me than thousands of Gold and Silver" Psal. cxix. 71 Though these Scriptures do not directly compare the word of God to Gold, but rather set out the great excellency of it above Gold, and show the great disproportion there is be- tween Gold and it ; yet we shall (as some divines have done) run a parallel between Gold and the word, and then in our usual method show the disparities. L Gold is a precioua sort of metal, and it is esteemed the chie&st of all minerals.* n. Gold contains much in little ; a small quantity of Gold is worth much brass, &c. f Him should all frdness dwell," 1 Tim. of these short sentences. III. Gold is a weighty and firm sort of metal. BISPASITT. I. The word of God is verypredous, and BO esteemed by all true Christians : " Thy word is very pure, therefore thy servant loveth it" '* I esteem the word of ihy mouth above my ne- cessary food," Psal. cxix. 140, Job xxiii. 12. U. The vord contains much in little. *'Fear God," how much is contained in that I ** God manifest in the flesh ;" " Christ the image of the Page 1

UntitledPABiXLEL. lY. Gold hath much beauty and splendour in it ; the colour shines and is glorious. y. Gold is made use of to deck and to adorn with. The father of the prodigal called for a ring to put upon his finger. ay, more than this, the crowns of kings and princes are usually made of Gold. IV. So is the word of God. The Gospel is said to be glorious, it is indeed transcendently ex- cellent ; its glory shines forth, and may be demon- strated many ways, 2 Cor. iv. 4. See metaphor Light. V. The word of God most gloriously decks and adorns every true Christian, that hath store of it in his heart, in whom it dwells richly. The Church is said to be clothed with wrought Gold ; the word of God, and the graces thereofj are doubtless intended thereby. The Gospel is the saint's crown and royal diadem ; should God suffer it to be taken away, they may cry out with Israel of old, " The crown is fallen from our head, woe to us that we have sinned," Lam. v. 16. The law of God is said to be *' An ornament unto the head, and chains about the neck,'' called (Cant. i. 10), " Chains of Gold." VI. The word of God is made use of by Jesus Christ, to make many golden vessels, gol- den saints, golden churches ; called by the Spirit ** golden candlesticks." Rev. i. 20. o people in the world are so glorious, precious, and amiable^ as God's people. See Candlestick and Vessel; Page 3
