a_o power_n great_a than_o ever_o christ_n have_v or_o at_o least_o exercise_v as_o either_o man_n or_o mediator_n i_o promise_v and_o protest_v again_o as_o before_o that_o if_o mr._n prynne_n or_o any_o other_o shall_v at_o any_o time_n clear_o and_o fair_o prove_v either_o the_o one_o or_o the_o other_o of_o these_o proposition_n i_o will_v pull_v down_o with_o both_o my_o hand_n what_o i_o
