the_o matter_n thou_o undertake_v to_o vindicate_v for_o as_o to_o the_o appointment_n or_o at_o least_o approvement_n of_o god_n concern_v the_o sanctuary_n tabernacle_n temple_n and_o synagogue_n we_o do_v not_o deny_v but_o christ_n be_v come_v the_o fulfiller_n of_o all_o figure_n and_o he_o say_v neither_o at_o jerusalem_n nor_o at_o this_o mountain_n shall_v man_n worship_v the_o father_n but_o the_o true_a worshipper_n shall_v worship_v he_o in_o spirit_n and_o truth_n and_o thou_o say_v it_o be_v but_o the_o ceremonial_a part_n that_o be_v abolish_v but_o thou_o may_v know_v that_o it_o be_v the_o very_a place_n in_o which_o their_o worship_n be_v perform_v in_o that_o dispensation_n for_o christ_n say_v concern_v the_o temple_n that_o there_o shall_v not_o be_v leave_v one_o

or_o time_n so_o that_o it_o may_v be_v understand_v that_o there_o be_v never_o any_o particular_a place_n appoint_v or_o approve_v of_o god_n since_o that_o time_n as_o a_o place_n set_v apart_o only_o for_o a_o place_n of_o worship_n and_o as_o for_o those_o place_n which_o be_v now_o call_v church_n they_o be_v never_o set_v apart_o by_o divine_a appointment_n for_o any_o such_o service_n
