"To such as have turned away from the holy commandment delivered unto them, is this word of exhortation sent. I mean such as have once known the way of righteousness and peace, by having had the love of God shed abroad in their hearts, but are now dead to God, and live in the neglect of religious duties. That such unhappy persons may be convinced of their dangerous course, and be induced to return unto God, it seems expedient to describe their characters, and exhibit the danger to which they are exposed."
