the_o apostle_n confute_v such_o among_o the_o roman_n and_o galatian_n as_o have_v corrupt_v the_o doctrine_n of_o justification_n but_o it_o will_v be_v irrational_a to_o think_v that_o their_o

this_o respect_n the_o apostle_n exclude_v work_n general_o and_o therefore_o the_o gentleman_n may_v have_v keep_v in_o his_o insult_a triumph_v word_n why_o shall_v he_o be_v at_o so_o much_o pain_n

none_o of_o we_o do_v affirm_v that_o that_o good_a and_o gracious_a work_n be_v we_o in_o that_o way_n that_o sinful_a work_n be_v and_o therefore_o his_o answer_n be_v but_o a_o shift_n he_o can_v

our_o own_o faith_n and_o our_o own_o repentance_n it_o be_v not_o christ_n but_o we_o who_o repent_v and_o believe_v hence_o it_o be_v evident_a that_o if_o justification_n be_v by_o good_a work_n of_o christ_n in_o we_o than_o our_o good_a work_n justify_v we_o for_o these_o be_v we_o in_o respect_n of_o subject_n and_o inherency_n he_o add_v that_o faith_n may_v be_v exclude_v from_o

the_o disciple_n have_v doubt_v yet_o the_o faith_n be_v not_o doubt_v answer_n according_a to_o this_o he_o may_v as_o well_o say_v that_o light_n in_o the_o air_n at_o the_o very_a first_o break_v
