Not illustrated. 1838 edition. Excerpt: ...sin indeed to make gold our god, as they do that make it their hope, and set their heart on it. He does not go about to excuse or extenuate the sin; but what he had said to them, by way of conviction, he says to God, by way of confession; They have sinned a great sin; he came not to make apologies, but to make atonement; "Lord, pardon the sin, /br it is great," Ps. 25. 11.
