PREPOSITIONS. A-; after; against

After ("following," Latin "secundum," hence "according to").

“Say, you chose him,
More after our commandment than as guided
By your own true affections.

“After my seeming.

Compare "Neither reward us after our iniquities," in our Prayer-book.

After is now used only of space or time, except in "after the pattern, example, &c.," where the sense requires the metaphorical meaning.
