Remaindershewing what just government is, and how far the magistrates power reacheth, and what the sword of justice is to cut down, and what it is to defend. Whereby they may learne and be directed to discern betwixt the guiltless and the guilty; and betwixt a matter of wilfull wrong by evill doers, which they are to punish, and a matter of conscience, by men that fears God, which they are to be a praise unto, and not a terror; and in particular divers causes are discovered; which are proved to be matters of conscience, and not of wilfull wrong; ... With an exposition of some parts of the law; for the edification of such, as desires to judge righteously between man and man, who would discern of different causes; and justify the righteous, and condemn the evill doers: by a friend to righteousness, and a lover of just judgement, who desireth the increase of good government.
