the_o first_o of_o these_o two_o way_n we_o shall_v see_v hereafter_o now_o let_v we_o brefe_o declare_v of_o the_o latter_a how_o it_o agree_v with_o that_o which_o we_o have_v above_o say_v that_o in_o the_o judgement_n of_o god_n we_o must_v rest_v upon_o no_o affiance_n of_o work_n and_o glory_n upon_o no_o opinion_n of_o they_o this_o be_v the_o agreement_n that_o the_o holy_a one_o when_o

contrary_a to_o the_o whereupon_o it_o hang_v wherefore_o when_o we_o exclude_v the_o affiance_n of_o work_n we_o mean_v only_o this_o that_o a_o christian_a mind_n may_v not_o bow_v to_o the_o

of_o obedience_n but_o this_o image_n or_o shadow_n of_o faith_n as_o it_o be_v of_o no_o value_n so_o be_v it_o not_o worthy_a of_o the_o name_n of_o faith_n frome_n the_o sound_n truth_n where_o of_o how_o far_o it_o dyffer_v although_o it_o shall_v be_v hereafter_o more_o large_o entreat_v yet_o there_o be_v no_o cause_n to_o the_o contrary_a why_o it_o shall_v not_o now_o be_v touch_v by_o the_o way_n it_o be_v say_v that_o simon_n magus_n beleve_v xviii_o which_o yet_o within_o a_o little_a after_o bewray_v his_o own_o unbelefe_n and_o whereas_o it_o be_v say_v that_o he_o beleve_v we_o do_v not_o understande_v it_o as_o some_o do_v that_o he_o feign_v a_o belefe_v when_o he_o have_v none_o in_o his_o heart_n butt_n we_o rather_o think_v that_o be_v overcome_v with_o the_o
