Robert Traill (Stedfast Adherence to the Profession of our Faith), Works 3:41:

It is a marvellous condescension in God, that he hath come to us as a promising God. He might have stood upon his state, and throne, and dignity; he might have kept upon the throne of his glories: but in wonderful grace he comes down, if I may so speak, as an equal; and he comes into covenant with us, and plights his troth [pledges his fidelity]. Is not this wonderful? Solomon wondered, Will God indeed dwell with men? No wonder if God will command men; no wonder if God will threaten sinners. These things become God, and are like him, and are suited to his nature; but will God promise to man: Will he make a covenant with man? Job 41:3, 4; so Ezek. 16:6-9.
