Motherless Name Changer.rar

The same Name now returns on your Lordship, who found your Fathers house in point of posterity in as low a Condition. Indeed your Grandfather left a numerous off-spring, whom I may fitly compare to the many strings of some musicall Instrument. But amongst his male-issue (for the rest I pass by as silent strings, sending no sounds to posterity, but losing their own Surnames in their matches) One was soon fretted in pieces with sickness; Three more, cut off in these wars; One absent beyond the Seas, and not easily to be tuned to a married estate; and the other single string remaining [His Grace your Father] left [Page] altogether issueless untill your Lordships welcome Nativity.

6. It is answered,3. Answ. though these studies are not essentiall to sal [...]ation, yet they are ornamentall,It is ornamentall to divinity. to accomplish men with knowledge, contributing much to the true understanding of the History of the Bible. Remarkable is that passage of the Apostle, Acts 17. 26. And hath made of one bloud all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation: wherein we may see Divinity the Queen waited on by three of her principall Ladies of honour, namely, skill in

7. More particularly it is described byDeut. 8. 7, 8, 9. Moses,Moses his caracter thereof.A good land, a land of brookes of water, of fountaines and depths that spring out of vallies and hills, a land of wheat and barly, and vines and figtrees, and pomegranates: a land of oile-olive and honey; a land wherein thou shalt eate bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lacke any thing in it: a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou maist digge brasse. For the further clearing of which description, we will exactly observe the severall commodities of Canaan, which nature bountifully bestowed upon it. Onely the land seems unhappy herein, that the fruitfulnesse thereof must come under our barren style to describe it. And yet on second thoughts I perceive, lean pens are fittest to describe fat Count [...]es. The soile of the county of Armagh in Ireland is so rank of it selfe, that if any compost or artificiall improvement be added unto it, it turns barren out of sullennesse, andCamb. Brit. in comitat Armach. indignation, that men should suspect the native fruitfulnesse thereof: and Fat upon Fat is false Heraldry in husbandry. Lest in like manner we should offend this Country of Cannan with additionall ornaments of Rhetorique, and lest all [...]lourishes of Eloquence be misinterpreted distrusts of the reall worth of this Country, a plain style and simple relation best becomes our present subject.

1. WE step now a stair higher from vegetable to sensible creatures: wherein this countrey was no lesse happy, such was the variety it afforded therein. Which will appear, first, if we furnish forth a feast of the flesh, fish, and fowl in Palestine; these particulars being premised. First, that no exception be taken at our false ranking of dishes. The Apostles said, it was not their office toAct. 6. 2. serve tables, and such mistakes are none at all in Divines Secondly, we name onely solid and substantiall meat, whereon a cunning Cook (besides sawces and sallets) may with compounded and forced dishes descant to indefinitenesse. Lastly, know the Law forbad the Iews the feeding on severall meats, so that their life was a Lent, to abstain from such food, to which Christianity allows us a licence:Levit. 11. 4. 5, 6. &c.Hogges-flesh, Conies, Hares, Swans, Herons, Lapwings, all fishes in armour, fenced with shels, recounted amongst the dainties of our diet, were prohibited unto them. Which very prohibition speakes their plenty in that country, otherwise the law had been needless to forbid such things which the land did not afford.

4. Fishes come in the next place, whose severall sorts in Sea, Rivers, and lakes were so many, that onely Adam, whose memory was the Nomenclator of the names of all creatures by him imposed, can summon them by their proper denominations. Of these all that hadLevit. 11. 9. Finnes and scales were permitted the Iews to eat. Butter the sawce-generall to fish, must not be forgotten. A staple dish of our Saviours whilest an infant, Isa 7. 15. Butter and honey shall he eat. Cheese concludes all; such as1 Sam. 17. 18. David brought to his brethren, such as2 Sam. 17. 29. Barzillai provided for David. Let not any dainty dairy women object, that Jewish cheese must needs be course, where milke ofDeut. 32. 14. sheep andProv. 27. 27. goats was so much in use: For a mixture of such milk is in Parmizan it self, so delicious to the palat. And now for Grace before and after meat, might not Palestine thankfully say with Psal. [...]3. 5. David, Thou dost prepare a table before me in the sight of mine adversaries, thou dost anoint mine head with oil, and my cup runneth over? Yea, what is said of the earth in generall, is most properly applyable to this Country, O Lord howPs [...]l. 104. 24.manifold are thy works! in wisdome hast thou made them all, the earth is full of thy riches.

We will first survey it in the originall condition thereof, as it consisted of a Heptarchy, or seven ruling nations of Canaan, whose number, names, extraction, and severall habitations require much care and diligence to rank and order them aright.

The first difficulty we meet with, is in the number of these nations, so variously reckoned up. They are counted up thus: two, Gen. 13. 7. three, Exod. 23. 28. five, Exod. 13. 5. sixe, Exod. 3. 8. 17. seven, Iosh. 3. 10. ten, Gen. 15. 19. eleven, Gen. 10. 15. & 1 Chron. 1. 13. and seventeen, if a collective number of them all be cast up. Now how come they to be so differently computed where one and the same Spirit is the Auditour to state their account? It is answered, that seven was the compleat and solemne number, whereon God himself emphatically insists when repeating his favours to the Iews,Deut. 7. 1.Seven nations greater and mighter then thou. And perchance the beast in the RevelationRevel. 13. 1. with seven heads, beareth some allusion thereunto. Wherefore when these seven nations are summed up defectively, under that number, we must conceive such of them as are omitted to be implyed under the Genericall name of Canaanites. But on the other side, when above seven are brought, then the inhabitants of the larger Canaan, are cast into the account: whose countrey was promised too, but never peaceably possessed by the Israelites, as we observed before. We finde three severall Editions (as I may call them) of the nations of Canaan, whereof the most authentick and common is Deut. 7. 1. which we will principally peruse, as followeth.

Their name in Hebrew signifieth Serpents. So called, as the learned conceive, from their delight to live under-ground in caves, whereof plenty in the sides of mountains. I find two Colonies or plantations of the Hivites. One in the center of the land, where afterwards the tribes of Benjamin, and Ioseph met together. For the Gibeonites (who put a new [Page 19] cheat on the Israelites, with their old clothes) wereIosh. 9. 7. & 11. 19. Hivites, as also the inhabitants of Sichem were of the sameGen. 34. 2. nation. Their other plantation was under mountIosh. 11. 3. Hermon, or in mount Lebanon, asIudg. 3. 3. Iosh. 11. 17. severall Scriptures doe place them. Now rather then any difference should arise herein, Hermon will humbly confess it self parcell of Lebanon, and so the seeming contradiction is reconciled.

So much of the heathen Heptarchy in Canaan. Come we now to consider a second edition of these nations, as God gave in a list of their names toGen. 15. 19. Abraham, promising withall to give his posterity their countrey in possession. Here we find them tenne in number, the Hivites being omitted, and four more added, namely,

That is, by the notation of the word, men of the east, or Easterlings if you please. These a learnedBochartus G [...]og. Sac. l. 4. c. 36. p. 347. man with great likelyhood conceives to be the Hivites; both because (as aforesaid) the Hivites are omitted in this Catalogue, and because they lived in the eastern part of Canaan, under mount Hermon. As for the opinion, that Cadmus the Phenician with Hermione his wife were Hivites (Serpents their name sounds in Hebrew, [Page 20] as we observed before) and therefore fabled by theOvid. Met. lib. 3. Poet, to be turned into Dragons; such as exclude it their judgment, because no solid truth, may admit it into their fancy as a pleasing conceit.

Their position is undoubtedly known, living about AshtarothGen. 14. 5.Carnaim in the half tribe of Manasseh beyond Iordan. But though here was their principall nest, we find some of their feathers scattered in other places, in a2 Sam. 5. 18. valley near Ierusalem of that name, and another in the tribeJosh. 17. 15. of Ioseph, whither perchance they fled, when smitten at home by Gen. 14. 5. Chedorlaomer.

In searching after their proper place, we are at a losse, like Ioseph when sent to seek his brethren; onely he, when wandring,Gen. 37. 15. met with a man to direct him, we with many to distract us. Some place them near the mountain of Sinai. But that barren desert affords no more livelyhood, then the Law there delivered could give life unto men. Others seat them neare Sin (by Ptolomy Simyra) in the northern bound of the land. And a thirdBochartus ut priùs. sort, whom we will follow, in the very south point thereof, at the entrance of Egypt, near Pelusium, called Sin in theEzek. 30. 15, 16. Scriptures, whence the desert of Sin hath its nameExod. 16. 1..

2. Let us consider,The 31 kingdomes how dispensed to the severall Tribes. how these one and thirty kingdomes were afterwards disposed of, and how they were shared amongst the severall Tribes. In reckoning up their names, we observe the method in Iosh, ibid. Ioshua, as he marshalls them upon order following;

It will be objected, that though age and accidents may alter the old, and induce new lineaments in mens faces, yet the Simile holds not in the description of Countreys, where the same chanels of sea, courses of rivers, falls of vales, flats of plains, ridges of hills, must remain. As for mountains, time, for want of carriage, must be forced [Page 24] to leave such luggage behind her; and therefore that such land, and water-marks, must always continue, without any considerable alteration. But it is answered, that even these seeming Standards of nature, are moveable with time and casualty, inundations, tempests, and earthquakes; in the last (being the earths violent cough) sometimes she spits up her own lungs, casting up great hills where never were any before. What the Apostle speaks in an higher sense, is true of the materiall world, and the severall countreys therein,1 Cor. 7. 31. The fashion of this world passeth away; so that to the very view of the eye, the shape, form, and garb thereof is metamorphosed. Besides, other Anagrams hapning in the land of Canaan, lands afterwards transposed for water, and water for land; one is most remarkable, namely, when the pleasant vale ofGen. 1 [...]. 3.Siddim nigh the banks of Iordan, was turned into the salt-sea, or noisome Asphaltite-lake. This was the work of the Lord, and it may justly seem marvellous in our eyes. But of the cause, time, and manner of this alteration, largely God willing hereafter. 041b061a72
