Even fo, or with much more contempt, men's eyes
That had not God, for some strong purpose, steel'd

Shew scarce fo grofs as beetles, Half way down,

ARK!-the death-denouncing trumpet founds The fatal charge, and fhouts proclaim the onfet, Destruction rushes dreadful to the field,
And bathes itself in blood. Havock, let loofe,

Is he not fed with the fame food, hurt with the fame weapons, fubject to the fame difeafes, healed by the fame means, warmed and cooled by the fame winter and fummer, as a Chriftian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poifon us, do we not die ? and, if you wrong us-shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the reft, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility ?-Revenge. If a Chriftian wrong a Jew, what should his fufferance be by Chriftian example ?– -The villany you teach me, I will execute; and it shall go hard, but I will better the
