This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: SECTION II. REMARKS ON GEN. iii. SHOWING, THAT THE SERPENT WHICH DECEIVED EVE WAS NOT A FALLEN ANGEL. In considering the Scripture doctrine concerning the devil and satan, Gen. iii. first claims our attention. Those who are not familiar with its contents will please turn to it, and read it.

The circumstances related lead to a very different conclusion.? Observe the connexion between the second and third chapters. In chapter ii. 19, 20, it is said, And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air, and brought them unto Adam, to see what ...
