1250. To Appear before God in all Humility,

how High soever our Condition be.
T is observable of Rebecca, that all the way of her jour-
ney, she was mounted on a camel, and rode amongst the
servants; but when she had once set her eye upon Isaac,
then she lighted down from the camel, and put herself

into a posture of all humble and low obeisance. So must the men of this world do, however it be, that many of them bear up their heads on high, stand upon the upper ground of riches and preferment, and are therefore bold and careless, not so much as once minding those that are below them ; yet, when they come into the Lord's presence, and are to deal with the great God of Heaven and earth, then they are to come down from their camels, fall down and kneel before the Lord their Maker, and be as humble, lowly, and vile in their own eyes, as possibly may be. Rudinius in Gen. xxiv. Templa petas supplex. 7. Smith on Lord's Prayer.
