    O how far remov'd,
    Predestination! is thy foot from such
    As see not the First Cause entire: and ye,
    O mortal men! be wary how ye judge:
    For we, who see the Maker, know not yet
    The number of the chosen; and esteem
    Such scantiness of knowledge our delight:
    For all good is, in that primal good,
    Concentrate; and God's will and ours are one.

For his religion, it was fit
To match his learning and his wit;
'Twas Presbyterian true blue;
For he was of that stubborn crew
Of errant saints, whom all men grant
To be the true Church Militant;
Such as do build their faith upon
The holy text of pike and gun;
Decide all controversies by
Infallible artillery;
And prove their doctrine orthodox,
By Apostolic blows and knocks.

Prove false again? Two hundred more.

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and
carried about with every wind of doctrine, read more

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and
carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men,
and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
things, which is the head, even Christ:
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by
that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual
working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body
unto the edifying of itself in love.

which now is dispersed all the world over.
