I must further add, that if you shall think the way of virtue uneasy and melancholy, you may look into those words the divine wisdom utters of herself, as follows: "I walk in the ways of justice, in the midst of the paths of judgement, that I may enrich them that love me, and may fill their treasures;" Prov. viii. 20, 21. What are these riches but the riches of this heavenly wisdom, far more precious than are the riches of the world, and bestowed on the lovers of justice, which is the same we have hitherto called virtue ? For if her riches did not much better deserve the name, than all other riches, how could the Apostle have thanked God for the Corinthians being rich in spiritual things ? 1 Cor. i. 5. He calls them rich without any kind of limitation, whilst he styles others the rich of this world only.
