*t*: Christ with the souls of the blessed.
|We read in the first chapter of the book of Job that his sons held feasts in their houses, each in his own house, and they sent for their sisters to eat and drink with them. The sons of Job are the righteous men who keep daily feasts, sending for those who shall be saved to come to the eternal happiness, and forever to enjoy God. Amen.||
|We read in the twenty-eighth chapter of Genesis that when Jacob saw the sun setting, he found a stone, which he placed under his head; and in his dream he saw a ladder stretchiog from the earth to the heaven, and angels descending, and the Lord standing above it, saying to him, " The earth on which thou sleepest will I give unto thee and to thy seed for ever." By Jacob understand the faithful soul, which, when it sleeps upon a stone--that is, Chriat--will gain the land flowing with milk and honey--that is, the kingdom of heaven|
