Of idolatry
Hammond, Henry, 1605-1660.

SOme few testimonies, which may tend to the clearing of the precedent observations, but could not conveniently be put in either, in the Text or the margin of the Book, I have here thought fit to affix by way of Postscript.

Add. p. 11. ad lin. 32. in marg. Thus among the Romanes in their lustra∣tions,〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, Sybil. orac. l. 3. p. 231. and speaking of the Christians giving over Idolatry,〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, &c.] it is added immediately, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 &c. naming all the severall nations of the hea∣then world that were guilty of it, p. 264. and exhorting against Idolatry,〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉&c.〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, p. 279. and that true pietie, as it is opposed to idol-worship, so to 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, &〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, l. 4. p. 287. & p. 296. and of the Romanes again, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, p. 315. and so again, p. 332.

Add. p. 12. ad lin. 24. in marg. In this sense I conceive Plato used the word 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉. l. 9. where speaking of sensuall men, and comparing them to beasts, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, full fed and lascivious, he addes, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, &c. Or if you will needs have the noti∣on of covetousnesse continued, yet I conceive the company that the word is so oft found in the New Testament, will have such an influence on it, that it shall belong to that 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, getting wealth by these unclean pro∣stitutions, which sure is expressed by the Authour of the Sybylin oracles, l. 3. p. 231. where immediately after the mention of those impurities is sub∣joyned, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉.

Add. p. 14. ad l. 4. in marg. to the word 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉. So in the Sy∣bil. or: is this sinne expressed by 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉. l. 3. p. 231. and the men guilty of it called 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, pag. 232. (the word 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, Page  36 noting all immoderate desires or attempts, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, saith Pha∣vorinus) and as it is immediately specified, 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 So in Phocylides,〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, &〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, doth seem to im∣port also.

Add. ad p. 15. l. 10. in marg. So in the Sibyll Oracles, l. 2. p. 172. with 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, those that had put off all shame,] are joyned 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, ravishers, and pag. 216. with 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉 (which sure belongs to the fury of inordinate lusts) there is joyned 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, rapes and shamelesse lusts, and 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, secret loves; and a 〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, the judgements of Brimstone (the portion of So∣dom for such sinnes) follows in the end of that Book. All which passa∣ges, though they cannot be thought to have that antiquity or authour, to which they pretend, are yet by our Countrey man Joannes Opsopaeus, or Cook, with great reasons supposed to be as ancient as the Emperour Commodus, and so will be worthy our heed, for a matter of no greater weight then is now laid on them.
