&_o rise_v again_o for_o our_o justification_n that_o through_o his_o mean_n mercy_n have_v swallow_v up_o misery_n and_o bounty_n have_v overcome_v all_o evil_a final_o that_o without_o he_o there_o be_v no_o joy_n nor_o consolation_n no_o peace_n nor_o quietness_n no_o felicity_n nor_o salvation_n but_o that_o he_o be_v the_o only_a mean_n by_o which_o all_o good_a thing_n be_v attain_v so_o that_o they_o which_o enjoy_v he_o receive_v not_o one_o gift_n alone_o as_o with_o solomon_n wisdom_n with_o samson_n strength_n with_o job_n patience_n with_o paul_n zeal_n &c_n &c_n but_o for_o
