The infinite dignity of his person, rendered his [Christ’s] enduring the execution of the curse, infinitely valuable; so, as abundantly to compensate the infinite wrong, done to the honour of the Most High, according to the estimate made of it, by law and justice. Being an infinite person, his dignity stamped infinite value, on his temporary suffering of death; and rendered it even more than equivalent, to that infinite duration of suffering, or, to those eternal torments, which they [the elect] were otherwise to have endured.

From the same source:

The infinite dignity of his glorious person, imparted an infinite value to his temporary sufferings; and rendered them, even more than equivalent to the eternal sufferings, which we were to have endured: so that, here were the temporal sufferings of an infinite person, in place of the eternal sufferings of finite creatures.

John Colquhoun, A Treatise of the Covenant of Grace (Edinburgh: Ogle, Allardice and Thomson, 1818), p. 149.
