four_o bishop_n have_v dependence_n upon_o two_o archbishop_n when_o be_v it_o otherwise_o be_v it_o not_o so_o in_o all_o subordination_n of_o government_n if_o this_o be_v a_o just_a inconvenience_n let_v all_o be_v level_v to_o a_o equality_n and_o that_o shall_v end_v in_o a_o certain_a confusion_n but_o they_o swear_v to_o they_o canonical_a obedience_n true_a but_o it_o be_v only_o in_o omnibus_fw-la licitis_fw-la &_o honestis_fw-la mandatis_fw-la the_o supposition_n employ_v must_v needs_o savour_v of_o uncharitableness_n that_o the_o metropolitan_o will_v be_v still_o apt_a to_o require_v unlawful_a thing_n and_o the_o bishop_n will_v ever_o base_o stoop_v to_o a_o servile_a humour_v of_o they_o 5._o but_o they_o have_v their_o place_n only_o for_o their_o life_n and_o therefore_o not_o fit_a to_o have_v a_o legislative_a power_n over_o the_o honour_n liberty_n propriety_n of_o the_o subject_n 1._o if_o they_o have_v their_o bishopric_n but_o for_o their_o life_n yet_o there_o be_v scarce_o any_o of_o they_o that_o have_v not_o so_o much_o temporal_a estate_n in_o fee_n as_o may_v make_v they_o no_o less_o capable_a of_o a_o legislative_a power_n then_o many_o of_o the_o house_n of_o commons_o who_o claim_v this_o right_n second_o be_v the_o case_n other_o now_o than_o it_o have_v be_v all_o this_o while_n yet_o for_o so_o many_o hundred_o year_n there_o have_v be_v good_a law_n and_o just_a sentence_n give_v by_o their_o concurrence_n notwithstanding_o this_o their_o tenure_n for_o life_n 3_o if_o they_o be_v honest_a and_o conscionable_a though_o they_o have_v their_o place_n but_o for_o a_o year_n or_o a_o day_n they_o will_v not_o yield_v to_o determine_v aught_o unjust_o and_o if_o dishonest_a and_o conscienceless_a it_o be_v not_o the_o perpetual_a inheritance_n of_o our_o place_n that_o can_v make_v our_o determination_n just_a 6._o if_o dependency_n and_o expectation_n of_o further_a preferment_n lie_v in_o our_o way_n why_o not_o equal_o in_o many_o temporal_a lord_n who_o be_v interest_v in_o office_n and_o place_n in_o court_n why_o shall_v we_o be_v more_o mis-carriageable_a by_o such_o possibility_n or_o hope_n than_o

several_a and_o particular_a bishop_n have_v much_o encroach_v upon_o the_o conscience_n of_o his_o majesty_n subject_n in_o matter_n of_o their_o propriety_n and_o liberty_n what_o reason_n be_v there_o to_o impute_v this_o unto_o all_o why_o shall_v the_o innocent_a be_v punish_v for_o the_o wrong_n of_o the_o guilty_a let_v those_o who_o can_v be_v convince_v of_o a_o offence_n this_o way_n

whole_a number_n of_o 26._o shall_v be_v interest_v in_o the_o maintenance_n of_o that_o their_o jurisdiction_n which_o both_o the_o law_n of_o man_n and_o apostolical_a institution_n have_v feoff_v they_o in_o why_o shall_v they_o not_o defend_v their_o own_o lawful_a and_o holy_a call_n against_o all_o unjust_a opposition_n of_o gainsayer_n if_o their_o heart_n do_v not_o assure_v they_o their_o station_n be_v warrantable_a and_o good_a they_o be_v beast_n if_o they_o will_v hold_v they_o and_o if_o their_o heart_n do_v assure_v they_o so_o they_o be_v beast_n if_o they_o will_v not_o defend_v they_o but_o there_o be_v number_n in_o all_o the_o three_o kingdom_n that_o cry_v they_o down_o true_a but_o there_o be_v great_a number_n for_o they_o perhaps_o a_o hundred_o for_o one_o and_o if_o some_o busy_a factionist_n of_o the_o mean_a sort_n here_o about_o a_o body_n compound_v of_o separatist_n anabaptist_n familist_n and_o such_o like_a stuff_n make_v some_o show_n and_o noise_n yet_o what_o be_v these_o to_o the_o whole_a kingdom_n neither_o do_v these_o man_n more_o oppugn_v our_o vote_n in_o parliament_n than_o our_o station_n in_o the_o church_n so_o as_o this_o argument_n will_v no_o less_o hold_v for_o no_o bishop_n then_o for_o no_o vote_n as_o likewise_o that_o instance_n in_o the_o practice_n of_o scotland_n scotland_n have_v abolish_v episcopacy_n they_o say_v the_o more_o pity_n let_v they_o look_v quo_fw-la jure_fw-la and_o what_o answer_n to_o make_v unto_o that_o god_n who_o ordinance_n it_o be_v but_o i_o have_v think_v it_o shall_v have_v be_v a_o strong_a argument_n england_n retain_v episcopacy_n therefore_o scotland_n shall_v then_o scotland_n have_v abolish_v episcopacy_n therefore_o england_n shall_v do_v so_o too_o let_v there_o be_v any_o other_o church_n name_v in_o the_o whole_a christian_a world_n that_o have_v voluntary_o abandon_v episcopacy_n when_o it_o may_v have_v continue_v it_o and_o if_o their_o practice_n be_v herein_o singular_a why_o shall_v not_o they_o rather_o conform_v to_o all_o the_o rest_n of_o christendom_n than_o we_o to_o they_o 9_o but_o the_o core_n of_o all_o be_v that_o it_o set_v too_o great_a a_o distance_n between_o we_o and_o our_o brethren_n of_o the_o clergy_n and_o so_o nourish_v pride_n in_o we_o discontentment_n in_o they_o and_o disquietness_n in_o the_o church_n a_o argument_n that_o fight_v equal_o against_o all_o our_o superiority_n over_o our_o brethren_n and_o against_o our_o vote_n here_o by_o this_o reason_n we_o must_v be_v all_o equal_a none_o subordinate_a and_o what_o order_n can_v there_o be_v where_o none_o be_v above_o other_o what_o be_v this_o but_o old_a korahs_n challenge_n you_o take_v too_o much_o upon_o you_o wherefore_o lift_v you_o up_o yourselves_o above_o the_o congregation_n of_o the_o lord_n now_o i_o beseech_v you_o whether_o be_v there_o more_o pride_n in_o moses_n and_o aaron_n that_o govern_v or_o in_o corah_n and_o dathan_n that_o murmur_v and_o repine_v it_o be_v pride_n then_o that_o cause_v contention_n but_o where_o be_v this_o pride_n whether_o in_o those_o that_o moderate_o manage_v a_o lawful_a superiority_n or_o in_o those_o that_o scorn_n and_o hate_v to_o be_v under_o government_n be_v those_o brethren_n so_o affect_v as_o they_o ought_v they_o shall_v rather_o rejoice_v that_o any_o of_o their_o own_o tribe_n be_v advance_v to_o those_o place_n wherein_o they_o may_v be_v capable_a of_o do_v good_a office_n to_o they_o and_o the_o church_n of_o god_n in_o stead_n of_o swell_v with_o envy_n against_o their_o just_a exaltation_n and_o will_v feel_v this_o honour_n do_v to_o their_o profession_n and_o not_o to_o the_o person_n last_o what_o a_o mean_a opinion_n do_v this_o imply_v to_o be_v conceive_v of_o we_o by_o the_o suggester_n that_o we_o who_o be_v old_a man_n christian_a philososopher_n and_o divine_n shall_v have_v so_o little_a government_n of_o ourselves_o as_o to_o be_v puff_v up_o with_o those_o poor_a accession_n of_o titular_a respect_n which_o those_o who_o be_v real_o and_o hereditary_o possess_v of_o can_v wield_v without_o any_o such_o taint_n or_o suspicion_n of_o transportedness_n short_o in_o all_o these_o nine_o reason_n there_o be_v nothing_o that_o may_v induce_v a_o indifferent_a man_n to_o think_v there_o be_v any_o just_a ground_n to_o exclude_v bishop_n from_o sit_v and_o vote_v in_o parliament_n for_o episcopacy_n and_o liturgy_n we_o can_v be_v too_o wary_a of_o or_o too_o opposite_a to_o popery_n &_o antichristianism_n but_o let_v i_o admonish_v you_o in_o the_o fear_n of_o god_n to_o take_v heed_n that_o we_o do_v not_o dilate_v the_o name_n and_o imputation_n of_o these_o too_o far_o for_o i_o speak_v it_o with_o just_a sorrow_n and_o compassion_n there_o be_v some_o well_o meaning_n and_o seduce_v soul_n that_o be_v by_o erroneous_a teacher_n bring_v into_o the_o opinion_n that_o the_o sacred_a form_n of_o the_o government_n of_o the_o church_n and_o the_o holy_a form_n of_o the_o public_a devotion_n and_o prayer_n of_o the_o church_n and_o all_o the_o favourer_n of_o they_o be_v worthy_a to_o be_v brand_v with_o the_o title_n of_o popery_n and_o antichristianism_n for_o the_o first_o my_o heart_n bleed_v in_o i_o to_o think_v that_o that_o call_n which_o be_v institute_v by_o the_o apostle_n themselves_o and_o have_v ever_o since_o continue_v in_o the_o universal_a church_n of_o christ_n without_o interruption_n to_o this_o day_n shall_v now_o come_v under_o the_o name_n of_o popery_n i_o speak_v of_o the_o call_n if_o the_o person_n of_o any_o in_o this_o station_n have_v be_v faulty_a let_v they_o bear_v their_o own_o burden_n but_o that_o the_o call_n itself_o shall_v receive_v this_o construction_n in_o the_o opinion_n of_o well-minded_a and_o conscionable_a christian_n be_v just_o most_o lamentable_a i_o beseech_v you_o look_v back_o upon_o the_o history_n of_o former_a
