I should not have stopped at this word, but from a wish to offer a word on the subject as it concerns the virgin's womb. I humbly conceive that the womb of the virgin was altogether passive, (except in the simple act of consenting to the dead) in the conception of Jesus in the womb. For when the angel announced to the Virgin Mary the miraculous incarnation, and when to the seeming impossibilities of the thing itself, as it appeared to her, the angel explained how it should be accomplished by the miraculous impregnation of the Holy Ghost, Mary at once consented to the deed—Be it unto me according to thy word—and immediately the work was wrought· (Luke 1:31, etc,) And to this agrees the prophecy of the psalmist, (Psalms 139:13) "Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb." See all that follows to this amount in the succeeding verses of that glorious psalm, until Jesus comes to speak by was same spirit of prophecy in it, to the writing of all the names of his members, meaning every individual of his body the church, in the book of life. And hence the Lord Jesus, in another prophecy, had ages before said, "The Lord hath called me from the womb." (Isaiah 49:1) So that from hence we see the willingness of the Virgin, and the consent of Christ, at the call of his Father, and both together serving to illustrate and explain, as far as the nature of the mysterious subject can be explained, the wonderful transaction.
