Excerpt from A Compassionate Plea for Infants, or Remarks on Dr. Gale's Reflections
The Walking here alluded to, is that which the Law en joyn'd, amb. 19. 9, 18.
That prinkling was one Part of the Purification; you cannot deny; but Bathing the Body, you fancy, was ano ther, and the principal Part, and 'tis to that therefore you fuppofe the Words refer. But, Sir, with your Leave, the Sprinkling was the principal Part of the Purification; for the Sprinkling is call'd the Purification for Sin, 9, 17. The unclean Perfon is threatned, t). 13, to be cut'ofi from Iﬂael: For what? For Mt Bathing himfelf? No, but becaufe the Water of Separation was at fprinkled upon him.' And the Apofile, Heb. 9. 13. Mentions only Sprink ling. So that, according to your own Way of arguing, Sprinkling being the principal Part of this Purification, pm'zseaioeo more immediately refers to Sprinkling.
