be_v that_o will_v be_v a_o good_a soldier_n of_o christ_n jesus_n and_o do_v he_o true_a and_o faithful_a service_n because_o he_o have_v ransome_v thou_o from_o the_o tyranny_n of_o the_o devil_n

of_o it_o that_o so_o i_o may_v stir_v up_o the_o life_n of_o the_o precept_n in_o his_o work_n in_o you_o and_o when_o he_o be_v old_a he_o shall_v not_o depart_v from_o it_o that_o be_v if_o thou_o

with_o a_o cloud_n of_o exhortation_n i_o have_v think_v good_a here_o not_o only_o to_o press_v forth_o the_o principal_a scope_n of_o this_o text_n but_o also_o to_o suck_v out_o of_o the_o bowel_n thereof_o the_o more_o hide_a and_o abstruse_a collection_n and_o to_o gather_v the_o like_a argument_n out_o of_o other_o scripture_n because_o the_o whole_a scripture_n be_v one_o and_o dare_v

be_v draw_v from_o the_o necessity_n of_o the_o precept_n because_o every_o child_n natural_o be_v conceive_v and_o bear_v out_o of_o the_o way_n as_o the_o prophet_n david_n teach_v we_o 51.5_o psal._n 51.5_o behold_v i_o be_v bear_v in_o iniquity_n and_o in_o sin_n have_v my_o mother_n conceive_v i_o and_o the_o apostle_n saint_n paul_n say_v ephes._n 2._o 2.3_o that_o we_o be_v by_o
