So wrath is threatened against families, that neglect this duty, Jer. 10.25. Psalm 79.6. Pour out thy fury upon the heathen, that know thee not, and upon the families, that call not upon thy Name. And though families here may signify tribes, or nations, made up of so many household and families; yet the ground will be good by consequence; for if larger families should be thus punished, for neglect of this duty; why should lesser families think to escape, when guilty of the same crime? And how can this be charged on a nation, if the particular families be not to be charged therewith?
