1658, Sidrach Simpson, Two Books of Mr Syndrach Simpson, page 202:
- It is lawful to examin what is the eſſential nature of God. It is lawful to look into what God wil do, that we may ſee his attributes ſhining forth in them : But to examin the truth of what he hath promiſed, by that which is eſſential and natural unto God, is for a man to go out of the way that is ſaving.
