But Moses refused all that honor which he saw the multitude ready
to bestow upon him, and attended to nothing else but the service of God.
He went no more up to Mount Sinai; but he went into the tabernacle, and
brought back answers from God for what he prayed for. His habit was also
that of a private man, and in all other circumstances he behaved himself
like one of the common people, and was desirous to appear without distinguishing
himself from the multitude, but would have it known that he did nothing
else but take care of them. He also set down in writing the form of their
government, and those laws by obedience whereto they would lead their lives
so as to please God, and so as to have no quarrels one among another. However,
the laws he ordained were such as God suggested to him; so I shall now
discourse concerning that form of government, and those laws.
