unspecified meaning
  • But he confin’d himself to five points only, as meant by the apostle, viz.
  • …possessing it, and the mischiefs attending its opposite vice; and I should have called my book THE ART OF VIRTUE,[7] because it would have shown the means and manner of obtaining virtue, which would have distinguished it from the mere exhortation to be good, that does not instruct and indicate the means, but is like the apostle’s man of verbal charity, who only without showing to the naked and hungry how or where they might get clothes or victuals, exhorted them to be fed and clothed.

  • There are no more uses of "apostle" in the book.
