    John Brown of Haddington, A Compendious View of Natural and Revealed Religion, Book IV, "Of the External Dispensation of the Covenant of Grace, by the Word and Ordinances of God," Chap.

It ought to be habitually employed in this exercise, Psalm cxix.97. cxxxix.17, 18. lxiii.6. 4. Our thoughts ought to have a sanctifying tendency and influence, 2 Cor. iii.18. 5. It is proper that they be diversified in their objects and form, and proceed orderly from one point to another.
