The apostle's address to the dispersed Jews. He recommendeth patience and joy in afflictions, and prayer with faith. He giveth advice to the poor and to the rich. The reward of those that are firmly resistant under trial. Our own lusts, and not God, tempt us to sin. God is the unchangeable author of all good to his creatures. We must receive the word with purity and meekness, and not only hear, but do it. The necessity of governing the tongue. The essential duties of true religion.
