__ (1) These Words are the Conclusion of the Parable of the Lab in the Vineyard, which gives no Encouragement to People totheir Repentance to the End of their Lives J for they cannot fro hence receive any hope of being accepted then} because the Parables Jates to quite another Matter, namely, the Calling of the GentiliA partake of the Benefits and Privileges of Christ's Kingdom together w thejews; for the Gentiles are signified by those who wrought but a Hour. Nor have these Words any relation to any eternal becrui God's, whereby some few particular Persons are chosen to eternal L • and the much greater Part of Men reprobated, and appointed to DestniS On.

It was their own Fault therefore that they were not cb fen, nor God's, who did his Part towards their being such as he cool chafe and nwk* happy.
