that_o stand_v ready_a to_o take_v up_o the_o gauntlet_n and_o it_o may_v not_o perhaps_o be_v impertinent_a or_o unpleasant_a to_o observe_v that_o as_o if_o there_o be_v some_o secret_a magic_n or_o

of_o david_n which_o be_v so_o great_a a_o part_n of_o it_o have_v least_o of_o all_o be_v dispute_v and_o i_o can_v guess_v at_o a_o reason_n of_o this_o unless_o it_o be_v that_o their_o pretence_n

of_o god_n by_o who_o king_n reign_n and_o who_o confer_v such_o blessing_n on_o man_n by_o their_o ministry_n yet_o it_o show_v clear_o what_o a_o great_a sense_n they_o have_v of_o these_o benefit_n

we_o shall_v find_v the_o like_a intimation_n common_o in_o his_o providence_n for_o he_o seldom_o call_v king_n to_o these_o chamber_n of_o darkness_n but_o himself_o hang_v up_o taper_n to_o light_v they_o thither_o shaggy_a comet_n usual_o precede_v the_o funeral_n of_o king_n and_o as_o they_o be_v always_o startle_v and_o amase_a monitor_n so_o they_o be_v almost_o always_o portentous_a
