The first of these emendations makes a fine sense, but will not unite with the next line; the other makes a sense less fine, and yet will not rhyme to the correspondent word.

Consequently the perfection of knowledge requires that man should know distinctly all that is in a thing, such as its parts, powers, and properties.
