T is a fine remark of Lord Bacon,

that, “ As wines, which, at first * pressing, run gently, yield a more + pleasant taste than those, where the « wine-prefs is hard wrought, because

those fomewhat relish of the stone so and skin of the grape ; so those ob« fervations are most wholesome and * sweet, which flow from Scriptures

gently expressed, and naturally ex« pounded, and are not wrested or « drawn aside to common places, or a controversies.”
