which_o you_o have_v escape_v through_o the_o power_n of_o christ_n jesus_n and_o also_o lest_o you_o be_v ensnare_v by_o the_o wicked_a one_o who_o you_o have_v many_o time_n overcome_v for_o by_o faith_n we_o stand_v not_o bear_v the_o root_n but_o the_o root_n bear_v we_o who_o it_o behoove_v to_o keep_v on_o our_o armour_n of_o light_n in_o which_o walk_v we_o have_v our_o foot_n shod_a with_o the_o preparation_n of_o the_o gospel_n of_o peace_n and_o the_o helmet_n of_o salvation_n and_o the_o breastplate_n of_o righteousness_n the_o shield_n of_o faith_n and_o sword_n of_o the_o spirit_n which_o be_v the_o word_n of_o god_n by_o which_o we_o be_v enlighten_v to_o see_v the_o device_n of_o satan_n and_o his_o wiles_n and_o temptation_n who_o deadly_a malice_n be_v against_o we_o and_o therefore_o seek_v to_o devour_v we_o or_o bring_v we_o into_o danger_n either_o by_o inward_a temptation_n or_o outward_a violence_n which_o he_o stir_v up_o in_o this_o time_n of_o our_o trial_n and_o adversity_n make_v use_n of_o those_o for_o instrument_n that_o have_v deal_v treacherous_o in_o the_o land_n of_o uprightness_n and_o therefore_o let_v we_o be_v circumspect_a in_o word_n and_o conversation_n commit_v our_o way_n unto_o the_o lord_n that_o weigh_v the_o mountain_n in_o scale_n and_o the_o spirit_n of_o man_n as_o in_o a_o balance_n who_o with_o the_o breath_n of_o his_o mouth_n will_v scatter_v the_o chaff_n and_o disperse_v the_o cloud_n of_o darkness_n which_o will_v obscure_v the_o glory_n of_o god_n heavenly_a appearance_n as_o he_o have_v do_v in_o age_n past_a and_o likewise_o in_o our_o day_n as_o many_o of_o you_o be_v witness_n so_o have_v this_o hope_n we_o faint_v not_o but_o believe_v the_o god_n of_o peace_n will_v tread_v satan_n under_o our_o foot_n and_o through_o christ_n power_n without_o who_o we_o can_v do_v nothing_o we_o shall_v triumph_v over_o the_o wicked_a one_o and_o as_o the_o love_n goodness_n and_o mercy_n of_o the_o lord_n you_o have_v obtain_v let_v the_o same_o free_o run_v through_o you_o that_o by_o patience_n meekness_n long-suffering_a and_o season_a doctrine_n you_o may_v gather_v in_o the_o

stumble_v block_n remove_v out_o of_o their_o way_n and_o be_v confirm_v and_o all_o the_o upright_a in_o heart_n preserve_v in_o the_o unity_n of_o the_o spirit_n and_o bond_n of_o peace_n and_o let_v love_n abound_v in_o your_o heart_n one_o to_o another_o according_a to_o that_o old_a commandent_fw-la that_o christ_n give_v his_o disciple_n for_o in_o that_o you_o may_v edify_v one_o another_o but_o the_o wrath_n of_o man_n work_v not_o the_o righteousness_n of_o god_n and_o you_o child_n who_o have_v know_v the_o father_n through_o the_o light_n of_o his_o belove_a son_n christ_n jesus_n who_o have_v shine_v in_o your_o heart_n in_o who_o you_o have_v believe_v that_o you_o may_v receive_v remission_n of_o sin_n for_o his_o name_n sake_n take_v diligent_a heed_n unto_o yourselves_o lest_o you_o grieve_v the_o spirit_n of_o god_n through_o which_o you_o have_v receive_v the_o adoption_n and_o be_v seal_v unto_o the_o day_n of_o redemption_n but_o watch_n and_o be_v soberminded_n lest_o the_o adversary_n that_o present_v himself_o among_o the_o son_n of_o god_n when_o he_o come_v from_o walk_v to_o and_o fro_o in_o the_o earth_n get_v advantage_n against_o you_o and_o draw_v your_o mind_n out_o from_o the_o pure_a holy_a seed_n whereby_o you_o be_v beget_v into_o the_o love_n of_o god_n from_o which_o fervent_a breathe_n and_o holy_a desire_n and_o godly_a zeal_n spring_v up_o in_o break_a tender_a and_o humble_a heart_n which_o thereby_o draw_v in_o daily_a nourishment_n that_o keep_v you_o grow_v fresh_a and_o fruitful_a whilst_o you_o abide_v in_o a_o holy_a reverence_n and_o be_v devout_o give_v up_o to_o walk_v in_o the_o true_a light_n &_o life_n of_o jesus_n christ_n who_o be_v both_o our_o saviour_n and_o preserver_n without_o who_o we_o
