    This [Second] Commandment, and the Fourth are longer than the rest, and more backed with argument, because the light of nature discerns less in these than in the rest; viz., the outward manner of the worship of God, and God's exactness in that, to be served not as we will, but as He Himself sees fit, and concerning the time of it.
