Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...the dayes of his life, that he may learne to feare the Lorde his God, and to kepe all the wordes of this lawe, and all these statutes, that he may do them &c. Of these two places it is euident, that principallie it apperteineth to the king or to the chief magistrate, to knowe the will of God, to be instructed in his lawe and statutes, and to promote his glorie with his hole hart and studie, which be the chief pointes of the first table.

Nowe if the lawe morall, be the constant and vnchangeable Note. will of God, to the which the gentil is no lesse loltLcie bounde, then was the lewe; and if God will that to the inTM amongest the gentiles, the ministres and executors more
