Together with some pracitcal observations and several degressions, (an index whereof is prefixed) necessary for vindicating, clearing and confirming many weighty and important truths. To which is affixed, a brief summary of the whole Revelation, with an alphabetical index of the chief and principal purposes and words contained in this commentary.
