5 w Not for thy RighTeousness, or for the UpRightness of thine Heart dost thou go to possess their Land: but for the WickedNess of these Nations the Lord thy God doth Drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the Word which the Lord fware unto thy Fathers.

Kfm. i». jo What (hall we fay then? that the Gentiles which followed not after Righteousness. ba\e attained to Righteousness, even the Righteousness which is of Faith.

31 But lstael, which followed after the Law of Righteousness, hath not attained to the Law of RightsOUSMSSS

31 Wherefore? because they Sought it, Not by Faith, but as it were by the Works of the Law: for rhey Stumbled at that Stumbling Stone.

Ttwn. x. 1 Brethren, my Heart's Desire and Prayer to God for Israel, is, that they might be saved.

7 Forge;

7 Forget not how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to Wrath in the Wilderness: from the Day that thou didst depart out of the Land of Egypt, until ye came unto this Place, ye have been Rebellious against the Lord.

8 Also in Horeb ye provoked the Lord to Wrath, so that the Lord was angry with you, to have destroyed you.

9 When I was gone up into the Mount, to receive the Tables of Stone, then I abode in the Mount forty Days and forty Nights, I neither did eat Bread, nor drink Water.

I o And the Lord delivered unto me two Tables of Stone written with the Finger of God, and on them was written according to all the Words which the Lord spake with you in theMouNT, out of the midst of Fire.

II And it came to pass at the End of forty Days and forty Nights, that the Lord gave me the two Tables of Stone, even the Tables of the Covenant.

12 And the Lord said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy People which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: they are quickly turned aside out of the Wry which I commanded them;

a For I beat them record, that they have a Zeal of God, but not according to Knowledge.

j For they being Ignorant of God's Righteousness, and going about to establish their Own RighteOusness, hare not submitted themselves unto the Righteousness of God.

4 For Christ is the End of the Law for Righteousness to eveiy on« that niM.iKv Itii.

5 For Moses describeth she RighTeousness which is of the Law', That the Man which doth thole Things, (lull live by them.

6 But the Righteousness which is of Faith, speakerh on this wile, Say not in thine Heart, Who shall ascend into Heaven? (that is to bring Christ down from above)

7 Or who shall descend info the Deep ? (that is to bring up Christ again from rhe Dead)

11 For there is no Difference between the Jtw and the Greek : sot the fame Lord over all, is ikh unto all that call upon him.

Epher. ii. 8 By Grace ye are saved, thiough Faith; and that not of your lei ves : it is the Gift of God:

Gdl. iii 19 Wherefore then scrveih the Law? It was added because of Tiansgieflions, till the Seed should come, to whom the Piomise was made; and it was Ordainid by Ai»Geis in the Hand of a Mediator.

20 Now a Mediator is not a Mediator of one; but God is One.

21 Is the Law then against live Promises of God? God forbid: foe if there had been a Lavv given which could have givrn Life, venly RighteOusness should have been by the Law.

15 So I turned and came down from the Mount, and the Mount burned with Fire: and the two Tables of the Covenant were in my two Hands.

16 And I looked, and behold, ye had finned against the Lord your God, and had made you a molten Calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the Lord had commanded you.

17 And I took the two Tables, and cast them out of my two Hands, and brake them before your Eyes.

18 And I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty Days and forty Nights; I did neither eat Bread, nor drink Water, because of all your Sins which ye finned, in doing wickedly in the Sight of the Lord, to provoke him to Anger.

19 (For I was Afraid of the Anger, and hot Displeasure wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you) But the Lord hearkned unto me at that Time also.

22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hattaavah, ye provoked the Lord to Wrath.

«3 Likewise when the Lord sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and possess the Land which I have given you; then you Rebelled against the Commandment of the Lord your God, and ye Believed him Not, nor hearkned unto his Voice.

24 You have been Rebellious against the Lord, from the Day that I knew you.

25 Thus I fell down before the Lord forty Days and forty Nights, as I fell down at the first; because the Lord had said he would destroy you.

26 I Prayed therefore unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, destroy not thy People, and thine Inheritance, which thou haft redeemed through thy Greatness, which


thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty Hand.

27 Remember thy Servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the Stubbornness of this People, nor to their Wickedness, nor to their Sin.

28 Lest the Land whence thou broughtest us out, fay, Because the Lord was not able to bring them into the Land which he promised them, and because he hated them, he hath brought them out to flay them in the Wilderness.

29 Yet they are thy People, and thine Inheritance, which thou broughtest out by thy mighty Power, and by thy stretched out Arm.


1 God'; Mercy in restoring the two Tables. 12 An Exhortation to Obedience.

Ver. 1 A T that Time the Lord said unto me, Hew thee A two Tables of Stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the Mount, and make thee an Ark of Wood.

2 And I will write on the Tables the Words that were in the first Tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the Ark.

3 And I made an Ark of Shittim-wood, and hewed two Tables of Stone like unto the first, and went up into the Mount, having the two Tables in mine Hand.

4 And he wrote on the Tables, according to the first writing, the Ten Commandments, which the Lord spake unto you in the Mount, out of the Midst of the Fire, in the Day of the Assembly: and the Lord gave them unto me.

5 And I turned myself and came down from the Mount, and put the Tables in the Ark which I had made, and there they be, as the Lord commanded me.

10 And I stayed in the Mount, according to the first time, forty Days and forty Nights, and the Lord hearkned unto me at that time also, and the Lord would not destroy thee.

11 And the Lord said unto me, Arise, take thy Journey before the People that they may go in, and possess the Land which I svvare unto their Fathers to give unto them.
