I detain the reader at this word in order to mark the peculiar sweetness of it. Our gracious Lord in recommending it to his disciples, evidently shewed that there was somewhat interesting in it. "Let your communication (said Jesus) be Yea, yea, Nay, nay; for whatsoever is more than these, cometh of evil." (Matthew 5:37) I would not be understood, as speaking decidedly on any point where God the Holy Ghost hath not done it; but I venture to ask, did not our gracious Lord, mean by this recommendation to shew that the Yea, yea, of his people, should be in contemplating the verily, verily, of himself? And if with an eye to him, our yea had a frequent use, would there not be a peculiar sweetness derived from it?
