first_o i_o conceive_v because_o he_o will_v have_v his_o gift_n receive_v which_o will_v otherwise_o become_v fruitless_a and_o unprofitable_a he_o give_v his_o only_a beget_v son_n and_o be_v it_o

contract_v fix_a and_o confirm_v by_o his_o affection_n and_o their_o lively_a faith_n second_o the_o lord_n require_v faith_n that_o so_o this_o gift_n of_o he_o may_v be_v beneficial_a to_o the_o whole_a world_n in_o all_o place_n and_o at_o all_o time_n indifferent_o for_o be_v christ_n to_o be_v receive_v any_o other_o way_n then_o by_o faith_n all_o man_n can_v not_o have_v be_v capable_a of_o receive_v he_o at_o all_o season_n suppose_v he_o have_v come_v into_o the_o world_n in_o the_o day_n of_o the_o creation_n and_o continue_v in_o the_o world_n till_o the_o day_n of_o

shall_v say_v in_o his_o heart_n who_o shall_v ascend_v into_o heaven_n that_o be_v to_o bring_v down_o christ_n from_o above_o or_o who_o shall_v descend_v into_o the_o deep_a that_o be_v to_o bring_v up_o christ_n from_o the_o dead_a the_o word_n be_v nigh_o thou_o even_o in_o thy_o mouth_n and_o in_o thy_o heart_n that_o be_v the_o word_n of_o faith_n which_o we_o preach_v say_v st._n
