CATECHISM WITH AN EXPLICATION UPON THE SAME. Quest. 1. What doth
God require of us in our dependence on him, that he may be
glorified by us, and we accepted with him ? Am. That we(") worship
him(b) in and by the ways of his own appointment. (*)Matt. iv. 10.
Rev. xiv. 7. Dent. vi. 13. x. 20. (b) Lev. x. 1--3. Exod.xxiv. 3.
