they_o regard_v not_o the_o person_n of_o the_o priest_n and_o favour_v not_o the_o elder_n and_o indeed_o as_o nothing_o do_v more_o provoke_v god_n than_o such_o a_o scoff_a humour_n and_o such_o a_o contemptuous_a usage_n of_o his_o servant_n and_o messenger_n so_o nothing_o do_v soon_o precipitate_v his_o judgement_n nay_o nothing_o can_v be_v a_o more_o certain_a prognostic_n that_o they_o

once_o grow_v common_a it_o must_v needs_o make_v their_o condition_n desperate_a for_o than_o it_o come_v to_o god_n turn_v to_o laugh_v and_o to_o mock_v too_o because_o i_o have_v call_v and_o
