114. That one ought to make confession while he is in the flesh.

In the fifth Psalm: “But in the grave who will confess unto Thee?”46234623    Ps. vi. 5. [Here, as often, the grave is represented as enjoying a temporary victory, for the flesh is no longer capable of worship. Not till the whole man is restored comes 1 Cor. xv. 54, 55.] Also in the twenty-ninth Psalm: “Shall the dust make confession to Thee?”46244624    Ps. xxx. 9. Also elsewhere that confession is to be made: “I would rather have the repentance of the sinner than his death.”46254625    Ezek. xxxiii. 11. Also in Jeremiah: “Thus saith the Lord, Shall not he that falleth arise? or shall not he that is turned away be converted?”46264626    Jer. viii. 4.
