    As the Second Commandment concerns the solemn form of Divine worship, that it be not such as we devise, but such as Himself appoints; the Third, the qualification or manner of it, not vainly and profanely, but with holy reverence; the Fourth, the solemn time set apart for it, the sabbath; so, this First Precept aims at somewhat which is previous to all these.
