The Exhortation

The Scripture moveth us] The Sentences supply 11 such places, but
there are many more to be found in the Bible. The word "moveth" has
the same meaning as when a resolution is moved at a meeting.

When we assemble and meet together in Church] Four reasons are
given, viz. the four great occupations of Worship, without regard to
their order in the Service. We have already pointed out that
Thanksgiving and Prayer spring from the sense of man's wants and
his dependence on God; and that the Reading of God's Word in these
Services is not for study but for Praise. We shall therefore find
the Thanksgiving after the Prayers, and the Lessons (or Lections) of
Holy Scripture amongst the Praises.
