A-frTER these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias and on this wife stiewed he himself', l. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and * Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the e sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 3. Simon Peter faith unto them, I go a fishing. They fay unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth,aud entred into a sliip immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4. But when the morning was now come, Jeius stood on the shore: but the disciples f knew not that it was Jesus. 5. Then 1 Jesus faith unto them, * Children [Or, Stri\ have ye any meat ? They answered him, ^No. 6. And he said unto them, h Cast the net on the right fide of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude' of fishes. 7< Therefore that disciple whom Jesus 1 loved, faith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fishers coat unto him, (for he was (1) naied)

himself into the Sea, to swim first to him. Both the Jews and Romans too, when they speak of a Persons being Naked, mean, his having only a Shirt on, or some' linen Garment, or other inner Clothing next his Skin, not that he was absolutely naked without any Covering at all. They therefore called him naked who had put off his Gown or outward Garment. In this Sense, I conceive, the Command of God to Isaiah, Chap. 20. i, 3. to go naked and barefoot for three Years is to be understood. For is it to he imagined that God, who would not suffer that his Altar, Exod. 20. 26. would be made to go up by Steps, lest the Nakedness of his People should he discovered thereon, would command the Prophet to go publickly naked without any Covering whatsoever for the Space of three Years? Nor "his being ordered to put off his Sackcloth, an Argument that he w*r Juke naked; for though Sackcloth was wcm next the Skin in Times of Humiliation, it might notwithstanding be worn On the like Occasions as an outward Garment too. In this Sense also,! suppose, Saul is said, 1 Sm, 19. 34. to have prophesied before Samuel, and to lie down naked; and in this Sense David was uncovered when he danced before the Ark, iSm. 6. 20. The Meaning is, they hid aside their Royal Robes. Of Pmdi .it is exprefly said, Ver, 14. that he was girded with a linen W>4..

Verily verily 1 lay unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdestthy self, and walkest whither thou wouldst: but when thai lhalt be old, thou malt A stretch forth thy hands, and ano-| ther shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldfi'j not. 1 This spake he, signifying by what death he sliotilij giorifieGod. And when he had 1 poken this, he faith usti| to him, Follow me. 20. Then Peter turning about, ieefJrj the disciple whom Jesus e loved, following ^ which alfoleaa»l ed on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betray eth thee? 2.1. Peter seeing him, faith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 22. Jesus faith unto him, 1H will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me: 23. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple ihould not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He mall not die5 but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? 24. This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we f know that his testimony is true. 25. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which if they should be 8 written every one, I suppose that even the h world itself could not contain the books that mould be written. Amen.
