  6. 6. Poetry and Theodicy  Instruct me for thou know’st; Thou from the first/ Wast present, and with mighty wings outspread/ Dove-like sat’st brooding on the vast Abyss/ And mad’st it pregnant: What in me is dark/ Illumine, what is low raise and support;/ That to the heighth of this great Argument/ I may assert Eternal Providence/ and justify the ways of God to men.

  8. 8. God’s “Umpire Conscience” “Thus while God spake, ambrosial fragrance fill’d / All Heaven” Some I have chose of peculiar Grace/ Elect above the rest; So is my will: / The rest shall Hear me call…/ To pray, repent, And bring obedience due… / And I will place within them as a guide/ My Umpire Conscience… To expiate his Treason… The rigid satisfaction, death for death.
