Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
Christ took the seed of Abraham, he took it not of Angels

So that be became like to his brethren in all things

Sin only except, thus plainly Paul tells,

Where came he by this flesh, which amongst us he brings?

Had he feathers as well as flesh, and came down with wings?

Christ came to be a mediator, it was requisite that he

Should be partaker of the godhead, and of our humanity.



Christ preached the word, and sowed forth good seeds,

But Beelzebub bestirred him, and up came the weeds

Which shortly spring up in fantastical brains.

Such Devilish deceivers the Devil entertains. ...​
