obs_n 1._o as_o the_o spirit_n in_o the_o simplicity_n and_o liberty_n of_o it_o have_v be_v hold_v forth_o and_o assert_v in_o our_o supreme_a counsel_n and_o force_n for_o the_o bond_n of_o our_o

have_v disow_v or_o confine_v this_o spirit_n as_o god_n be_v say_v to_o have_v set_v a_o ambush_n in_o the_o midst_n of_o edom_n moab_n and_o ammon_n when_o they_o come_v against_o jehoshaphat_n

simplicity_n and_o purity_n of_o the_o spirit_n unto_o sensuality_n or_o formality_n of_o any_o kind_n i_o have_v find_v those_o satisfaction_n which_o i_o have_v seek_v like_o jonahs_n gourd_n a_o
