again_o it_o must_v come_v to_o this_o that_o christ_n merit_v that_o we_o shall_v merit_v for_o there_o can_v be_v no_o benefit_n to_o a_o sinner_n but_o by_o merit_n christ_n do_v not_o absolute_o

if_o weary_a if_o lade_v cast_v yourself_o on_o i_o and_o you_o shall_v find_v rest_n for_o your_o soul_n but_o the_o great_a scripture_n be_v not_o to_o he_o that_o work_v not_o to_o he_o that_o think_v to_o obtain_v gospel_n benefit_n by_o comply_v with_o gospel_n rule_n of_o walk_v in_o holy_a obedience_n to_o obtain_v pardon_n by_o it_o but_o to_o he_o that_o believe_v on_o he_o that_o

this_o let_v in_o licentiousness_n i_o have_v find_v a_o better_a way_n of_o stare_a gospel_n truth_n that_o be_v to_o he_o that_o work_v to_o he_o that_o comply_v with_o gospel_n rule_n to_o he_o that_o be_v godly_a not_o his_o faith_n alone_o but_o his_o faith_n with_o sincere_a obedience_n that_o be_v his_o gospel_n holiness_n which_o the_o apostle_n intend_v when_o he_o speak_v of_o be_v
