By EDM: CALAMY, B. D. and Pastor of Aldermanbury, London.

1 COR. 10. 24.

Let no man seek his owne, but every man anothers wealth.

1 COR. 13. 5.

Charity seeketh not her owne.

ROM. 15. 2, 3.

Let every one please his neighbour, for his good to edification: For even Christ pleased not himselfe.

Qui neglectâ proximorum curâ, sui tantùm amator est, id assequitus, ut ne seipsum quidem verè amet; Quemadmodum enim in membris, unius detrimentum ad alia quoque membra pervadit; & in aedificiis, unius partis ruina, ad alias extenditur: sic & in Ecclesiâ, qui fratrem suum negligit, se seque tantummodo, & suam procurat utilitatem, sibi etiam ipsi vel invitus damno est. Nam qui in rebus necessariis, pericli∣tantem vidit fratrem, manum{que} non porrigit, in gehennam mittitur, ma∣jori detrimento, quam erat illud quo frater afficiebatur, &c. Theophyl.
