That the Moon may be a World.
Policy, whether true or falſe, but ſome of them,
by a Cabaliſtical Interpretation can Father it

ing not any abſurdity ſo groſs and incredible,
for which theſe Abuſers of the Text, will not
find out an Argument.

natural way, and ſhould be obſerved in all Con-
troverſies, to apply unto every thing, the pro-
