1 a Because hereby he shulde be taken as a false prophet, & so the Name of God, which he preached, shulde be blasphemed.
1 ! The great goodnes of God toward his creatures.
3 c Thus he praied of grief fearing lest Gods Name by this forgiuenes might be blasphemed as thogh he sent his Prophets forth to denounce his judgements in vaine.
5 e For he douted as yet whether God wolde shewe them mercie or not and therefore after fourtie dayes he departed out of the citie, loking what yssue God wolde send.
6 f Which was a further meanes to couer him from the heat of the sunne, as he remained in his boothe.
9 g This declareth the great inconueniences wherinto Gods seruants do fall when they giue place to their owne affection, & do not in all things willingly submit themselues to God.
11 h Thus God mercifully reproueth him, which wolde pitie himself & this gourde, and yet wolde restraine God to shewe his compassion to so manie thousand people.
