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.
