duty_n from_o day_n to_o day_n and_o because_o they_o be_v without_o this_o christ_n have_v not_o give_v they_o his_o holy_a spirit_n therefore_o they_o be_v not_o accept_v god_n be_v not_o please_v with_o they_o they_o pray_v without_o his_o spirit_n they_o cry_v god_n mercy_n without_o his_o spirit_n they_o seek_v to_o enter_v in_o without_o his_o spirit_n and_o so_o they_o be_v not_o admit_v now_o when_o a_o soul_n come_v to_o christ_n god_n be_v well-pleased_n with_o christ_n and_o therefore_o christ_n can_v give_v he_o this_o love-token_n christ_n can_v give_v he_o the_o holy_a spirit_n and_o so_o he_o shall_v be_v admit_v into_o favour_n with_o god_n god_n be_v well-pleased_n in_o he_o as_o pharaoh_n be_v in_o joseph_n and_o therefore_o joseph_n can_v present_v his_o brethren_n
