So is he - You are not to judge of him by his words, but by the constant temper of his mind. Vomit up - When thou perceivest his churlish disposition, his meat will be loathsome to thee.

Buy - Purchase it upon any terms, spare no pains or cost. Truth - The true and saving knowledge of God's will. Sell it not - Do not forsake it for any worldly advantage. Give me - Solomon here speaks in God's name. Mixt wine - Either mixed with water, or with other ingredients to make it strong and delicious. Red - Which was the colour of the best wines in that country. Aright - When it sparkles, and seems to smile upon a man. Lieth down - To sleep. Sea - In a ship in the midst of the sea. Sick - I was not sensible of it. Again - At present my condition requires sleep to settle myself, and when I am composed, I purpose to return to my former course.
