promise_v life_n to_o those_o do_v that_o it_o command_v but_o the_o law_n command_v not_o a_o external_a show_n of_o work_v only_o but_o the_o sincere_a love_n of_o god_n therefore_o it_o follow_v no_o merit_n of_o work_n can_v be_v admit_v in_o the_o righteousness_n of_o faith_n whereby_o appear_v it_o be_v but_o a_o frivelous_a cavil_n that_o we_o be_v justify_v in_o christ_n because_o we_o
