That the Moon may be a World.
Night; but her Melancholly being not ſatis-
fied with this, ſhe replied again, That that alaſs
was no benefit;
for in the Day time, ſhe
ſhould be either not ſeen, or not noted.
Where-
fore, God to Comfort Her up, promiſed, that
his People the Iſraelites ſhould Celebrate all
their Feaſts and Holy Days by a Computation
of her Months;
but this being not able to
Content Her, ſhe has looked very Melancholly
ever ſince;
however ſhe hath ſtill reſerved
much light of her own.
