You artfully lay down the position, that the wicked must be, and are in fact, overwhelmed with calamities, and then you infer, that because "I" am overwhelmed in this manner, I "must be" a wicked man.

The Resemblance Between the Old Testament and the New.

Both covenants truly one, though differently administered. Three things in which they entirely agree. 3.
