“The giving of the law upon Mount Sinai was the greatest favour of all that was done them and the greatest honour that was put upon them. The Lawgiver was very glorious, the law given was very good. No nation under the sun had such right judgments, true laws, and good statutes, the moral and judicial precepts were true and right, founded upon natural equity and the eternal reasons of good and evil; and even the ceremonial institutions were good, tokens of God’s goodness to them and types of gospel grace. Particular notice is taken of the law of the fourth commandment as a great favour to them: Thou madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, which was a token of God’s particular favour to them, distinguishing them from the nations who had revolted from God and quite lost that ancient part of revealed religion, and was likewise a means of keeping up their communion with him. And, with the law and the sabbath, he gave his good Spirit to instruct them.”
