vised and cxaétly corrected. Several Passages of the New Testament have been horribly, falsified in that Edition. Here follow fome Instances of it.
Luke II. 41. Instead of these Words, Now his Parents ment to Jerusalem every Tear, there is in that New Testament, and his parents went every Year IN PILGRIMAGE to Jerusalem : (Et ses pere & mere alloient tous les ans en pelerinage a Jerusalem.).

married I coma mand. N. T. of Bourdeaux. But as for those, who are united by THE SACRAMENT OF MAR, RIAGE, I command them. (Mais à ceux qui sont conjoints par le Sacrement de mariage, je leur commande, &c.)

N T. of Bourdeaux, You cannot be Partakers of WHAT IS SACRIFICED UPON the Lord's Table, and of WHAT IS SACRIFICED UPON the Table of the Devils. (Vous ne pouvez pas écre parti. cipans de ce qui est sacrifié sur la table du Seigneur, & de ce qui est facrifié sur la table des Diables.)
1 Cor. XI. 26. For as often as ye eat this Bread, &c. N. T. of Bourdeaux. For as often as ye eat this LIVING Bread, &c. (Car toutes les fois que vous mangerez ce pain vivant, &c.)
V. 28. But let a Man examine himself, and so let him eat of that Bread. N. T. of Bcurdeaux. But let a Man examine himself, and so eat of that LIVING Bread. (Or que l'homme l'éprouve soyméme, & ainsi qu'il mange de ce pain VIF.)

Novo the Spirit plainly Says, that in the latter Times fome foall depart from the ROMAN Faith. (Or l’Esprit dit clairement, qu' és derniers temps quelques uns se separeront de la foy Romaine.)
THESE Fallifications bring into my Thoughts a Passage of Beza, which deserves to be inserted here. That Illustrious Reformer tells * us, Monluc, Bishop of Valence, complained in the Con ference held at St. Germain in the Year 1561. that the Doctors of the Sorbonne had approved a Book written in Verse by Arthus Desiré, tho' he had falsified the Second Commandment, as it appears from the following Lines.

MR. Matte has made an Experiment of an ex
traordinary Congelation. He shews that two Drams of Oil of Tartar per deliquium being put into a Glass, and mixed with the same Quantity of the Liquor of Armoniac Salt, do quickly coagulare, insomuch that one may make a Ball of the whole Matter of such a Consistence, that will run upon a Table; and yet neither of those Liquors receives any other. Alteration, but that of losing its : Fluidity.

; ago to prove that the Body of St. Firmin, the Third Bishop of that Ciry, was not in the Cathedral Church. There is every Year, on the Festival of that Saint, a folemn Proceflion, in which his Shrine is carried by the Chaplains, and exposed to the Venerarion of the People. A Tradition of a Thousand Years, and above, is alledged for the Proof of those Relicks. The Chapter being re: solved to maintain their Pretension, have engaged one of their Brethren (Dr. de Leftocq,) to write a Dissertation against the Two Authors above-mentioned.

The first Letter is written to Father de Montfaucon, and contains several strong Objections concerning the Religion of the Therapeute.
