with_o the_o first_o of_o these_o that_o even_o the_o most_o eminent_o proposition_n 1._o proposition_n faithful_a and_o zealous_a prophet_n of_o god_n may_v be_v and_o shall_v be_v take_v away_o from_o a_o people_n the_o prophet_n or_o minister_n of_o god_n they_o be_v of_o different_a part_n and_o gift_n and_o they_o be_v of_o different_a spirit_n and_o they_o be_v of_o different_a use_n and_o service_n put_v they_o in_o comparison_n one_o with_o another_o some_o be_v as_o star_n of_o the_o first_o magnitude_n and_o other_o of_o a_o lesser_a magnitude_n some_o be_v as_o the_o cedar_n
