But if he thus say, I have no delight in thee
As a king, or in his temporal prosperity, though he might and had delight in him as a chosen vessel of salvation, as a saint and child of God, and in his spiritual and everlasting welfare:
behold, [here am] I;
his humble servant, ready to be, and do and suffer whatever is his pleasure:
let him do to me as seemeth good unto him;
strip me of all the ensigns of royalty, dispossess me of my crown and kingdom, and dispose of me as seems good in his sight; who is a sovereign Being, and has a right to do with his creatures what he pleases.
