Excerpt from Words to Win Souls: Twelve Sermons, Preached A. D. 1620-1650 by Eminent Divines of the Church of England
He then sets up certain divisions, which, like boundary marks, he carefully keeps in View, proceeding from one to another till he reaches the end of his discourse. Thus he loosens the parts without injuring their coherence, and, avoiding all digressions, keeps the attention of his hearers in that track to which it was first directed.
This. Intelligent division of the text is well likened, by one of the authors, to unfolding a rich piece of arras, and pointing with the finger to the subjects represented while the earnest and sweet consideration of the several parts is symboled by the bee that sitteth upon each particular ﬂower and gathereth the drops of honey?' In handling the several points of doctrine, the Preacher is careful not to separate the text from the sense in which it occurs; but Views it both in its first and special application (if any), and also in its present and more general meaning.
