Reading Experience:

Evidence:
In this Family, partly by his own inclination, and partly by the encouragement of the Governours thereof, he performed Family Duties for the instruction and edification of the whole houshold, expounding to them a portion of Scripture every morning, that the Sun of Righteousness might as constantly arise in their hearts, as the day brake in upon them. In this Exercise, whereby he laboured to profit both himself and others, he went over the Epistles of the Apostles, the Prophesie of Isaiah, and a good part of the Book of Job, rendring the Text out of the Original Languages, and then delivering cleer Explications, and also deducing usefull Observations.
