be_v in_o the_o state_n of_o man_n describe_v in_o the_o second_o chapter_n all_o that_o shall_v we_o see_v in_o this_o chapter_n to_o be_v overthrow_v by_o the_o work_n and_o malice_n of_o the_o

to_o be_v the_o verify_n of_o that_o prophecy_n which_o god_n 〈◊〉_d adam_n gen._n 2._o 17._o that_o be_v what_o time_n soever_o he_o shall_v sin_v and_o break_v the_o commandment_n of_o god_n he_o

to_o the_o great_a glory_n of_o all_o the_o elect_a son_n of_o god_n now_o more_o particular_o we_o be_v lead_v to_o consider_v two_o thing_n in_o the_o temptation_n first_o of_o all_o the_o person_n both_o agent_n and_o patient_a and_o then_o the_o allurement_n and_o enticement_n thereof_o the_o chief_a in_o this_o temptation_n be_v the_o devil_n and_o the_o woman_n and_o then_o in_o regard_n of_o consent_n adam_n himself_o grow_v accessary_a and_o guilty_a thereof_o so_o that_o there_o be_v three_o cause_n of_o sin_n the_o chief_a author_n of_o it_o be_v the_o devil_n the_o next_o be_v eve_n the_o yeelder_n to_o he_o the_o three_o be_v adam_n the_o consenter_n to_o they_o both_o serpent_n we_o know_v speak_v not_o for_o they_o be_v not_o make_v to_o reason_n and_o dispute_v therefore_o we_o must_v needs_o understand_v another_o high_a person_n beside_o he_o serpent_n which_o speak_v in_o he_o and_o use_v he_o as_o his_o instrument_n and_o mean_n to_o effect_v this_o evil_a devise_n and_o in_o this_o respect_n the_o devil_n be_v call_v rev._n 12._o 9_o the_o old_a serpent_n as_o his_o name_n appellative_a by_o which_o he_o be_v once_o call_v and_o satanas_n revel_n 〈◊〉_d 2._o as_o his_o proper_a name_n by_o which_o his_o 〈◊〉_d and_o malicious_a nature_n be_v make_v know_v as_o therefore_o the_o devil_n crafty_o and_o close_o do_v put_v into_o judas_n head_n and_o heart_n by_o his_o suggestion_n how_o to_o seek_v christ_n fall_n and_o death_n john_n 13._o 2._o so_o do_v he_o as_o sly_a lie_n put_v into_o the_o serpent_n mouth_n this_o temptation_n by_o which_o he_o may_v betray_v the_o first_o adam_n and_o bring_v he_o to_o death_n and_o therefore_o as_o christ_n true_o though_o not_o proper_o call_v judas_n satan_n because_o he_o see_v the_o devil_n use_v he_o as_o his_o instrument_n so_o by_o the_o same_o right_a and_o reason_n may_v we_o call_v the_o serpent_n the_o devil_n because_o it_o be_v he_o in_o this_o serpent_n who_o do_v bring_v this_o thing_n to_o pass_v if_o any_o do_v ask_v why_o moses_n do_v not_o make_v mention_n of_o the_o devil_n in_o all_o this_o chapter_n we_o may_v say_v that_o it_o be_v moses_n purpose_n to_o perform_v the_o office_n and_o duty_n of_o a_o historiographer_n which_o be_v only_o to_o make_v a_o plain_a and_o true_a report_n of_o the_o outward_a accident_n and_o thing_n which_o be_v

what_o expositor_n be_v there_o but_o by_o the_o consequence_n of_o this_o story_n and_o by_o conference_n of_o the_o scripture_n can_v otherwise_o understand_v this_o then_o of_o the_o devil_n our_o
