say_v to_o be_v justify_v the_o first_o reason_n which_o he_o bring_v to_o evince_v the_o contradictory_n and_o contrary_a conclusion_n have_v be_v there_o examine_v and_o i_o will_v not_o here_o actum_fw-la agere_fw-la to_o the_o second_o 1._o he_o shall_v have_v quote_v that_o apocryphal_a scripture_n which_o say_v he_o that_o believe_v shall_v be_v justify_v as_o if_o he_o be_v not_o already_o justify_v i_o find_v it_o not_o in_o the_o canonical_a 2._o those_o scripture_n which_o say_v we_o be_v justify_v by_o faith_n say_v not_o that_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o it_o as_o it_o be_v our_o righteousness_n or_o any_o part_n of_o our_o justify_v righteousness_n and_o those_o that_o say_v it_o be_v impute_v to_o we_o as_o mr._n baxter_n will_v have_v it_o for_o righteousness_n have_v be_v sufficient_o speak_v to_o under_o thesis_n 23._o and_o by_o the_o way_n mr._n baxter_n be_v not_o ignorant_a that_o the_o original_a text_n may_v be_v more_o proper_o render_v unto_o or_o to_o

that_o declare_v his_o dislike_n of_o that_o version_n and_o from_o the_o text_n so_o read_v what_o mr._n baxter_n can_v suck_v out_o to_o establish_v the_o righteousness_n of_o faith_n not_o as_o
