"My next answer Is, He says He has, in times past. Read the fourth Chapter of Amos, where He says He .sent nine different calamities j upon the people, and (he 28th chapter of Deuteronomy where He says He will send these teirlOle tilings upon the people if they forsake His ways. "My third answer (and here I expect all my fatalist brethren lo fall out wild me) that He does I not send them all.
