Devil) who tempted them to Sin;--In Confideration of this promifed Seed, God entered into a New Covenant with them, by way of Remedy, for what was paft, and could not

be undone.

We have reafon to believe, that this New Covenant was more fully explained to Adam, than is fet down in this fhort Account given us by Mofes, and as it is more fully explained in the Gofpel; and which was to this Purpose:That on Condition of their fincere Repentance, and fincere Obedience afterwards, they should be reftored to the Favour of God: and after Death, to that Life and Happiness, which in their State of Innocence was promifed to them without tafting of Death; which Favour they had forfeited by their Difobedience.

But here take notice and remember, that these Sacrifices could not take away Sin, but only through Obedience to the Ordinance of God, and through Faith in the promised Seed.

They were indeed very inftructive and proper to lead Sinners to Repentance, and Amendment of Life, when they faw, that their Sins could not be forgiven, but by the Death of an innocent Creature,
