preach_v among_o you_o but_o this_o principle_n to_o have_v people_n mind_n god_n in_o their_o conscience_n and_o to_o be_v faithful_a to_o what_o they_o know_v of_o god_n and_o what_o hard_a

to_o keep_v their_o conscience_n clear_a in_o his_o sight_n and_o how_o have_v some_o seal_v it_o with_o their_o blood_n and_o still_o be_v ready_a though_o patient_a suffer_v in_o his_o power_n god_n

and_o this_o i_o say_v of_o they_o that_o be_v faithful_a to_o god_n in_o what_o they_o know_v they_o be_v the_o people_n of_o god_n and_o there_o be_v no_o more_o require_v of_o any_o of_o we_o but_o to_o be_v faithful_a to_o what_o we_o know_v be_v it_o much_o or_o little_a so_o this_o be_v my_o testimony_n for_o this_o people_n if_o i_o shall_v write_v no_o more_o for_o i_o wait_v for_o my_o

of_o the_o god_n of_o heaven_n to_o send_v this_o affliction_n of_o lameness_n upon_o i_o so_o that_o in_o the_o prime_n of_o my_o age_n my_o strength_n be_v take_v from_o i_o i_o care_v not_o

not_o whether_o i_o shall_v have_v be_v conformable_a to_o his_o heavenly_a will_n but_o in_o love_n and_o tenderness_n to_o my_o soul_n have_v he_o suffer_v this_o exercise_n to_o come_v upon_o i_o and_o i_o have_v for_o ever_o cause_v to_o bless_v his_o name_n that_o ever_o he_o have_v deal_v with_o i_o after_o this_o manner_n if_o he_o never_o restore_v i_o to_o my_o former_a strength_n again_o his_o will_v be_v do_v though_o to_o look_v at_o it_o it_o be_v very_o hard_a and_o i_o know_v i_o be_o a_o object_n of_o pity_n to_o many_o of_o you_o but_o why_o shall_v i_o murmur_v at_o it_o shall_v the_o pot_n say_v to_o the_o potter_n why_o have_v thou_o make_v i_o thus_o no_o i_o shall_v not_o but_o bless_v his_o name_n that_o ever_o he_o have_v spare_v i_o to_o this_o day_n that_o i_o shall_v answer_v what_o he_o require_v of_o this_o poor_a weak_a body_n of_o i_o and_o this_o be_v the_o great_a joy_n and_o comfort_n of_o my_o soul_n that_o as_o i_o have_v find_v my_o strength_n go_v from_o i_o outward_o my_o faith_n and_o hope_v and_o strength_n have_v renew_v in_o god_n inward_o and_o here_o i_o have_v great_a cause_n of_o joy_n and_o comfort_n and_o to_o god_n let_v the_o honour_n and_o praise_n be_v who_o be_v worthy_a overall_a bless_a for_o ever_o and_o for_o evermore_o faith_n my_o soul_n and_o one_o thing_n more_o i_o will_v desire_v of_o you_o to_o have_v a_o care_n of_o speak_v slight_o of_o the_o spirit_n of_o god_n and_o christ_n and_o make_v a_o mock_n thereat_o as_o some_o have_v do_v as_o say_v what_o the_o spirit_n will_v not_o let_v you_o do_v this_o or_o that_o let_v i_o prevail_v with_o you_o to_o have_v a_o care_n what_o you_o say_v as_o to_o this_o thing_n lest_o you_o sin_v the_o unpardonable_a sin_n against_o the_o holy_a ghost_n i_o have_v wonder_v when_o some_o man_n have_v speak_v to_o i_o after_o this_o manner_n who_o profess_v to_o be_v wise_a and_o religious_a shall_v offer_v to_o speak_v so_o slight_o of_o this_o spiritual_a appearance_n of_o christ_n for_o if_o ever_o you_o know_v god_n you_o must_v know_v he_o spiritual_o for_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n and_o they_o that_o worshlp_v he_o must_v

with_o my_o hat_n on_o if_o i_o can_v have_v be_v clear_a in_o god_n sight_n i_o have_v rather_o have_v lie_v at_o your_o foot_n but_o at_o any_o time_n if_o i_o do_v not_o stand_v faithful_a to_o this_o small_a thing_n as_o you_o count_v of_o what_o pain_n and_o sorrow_n have_v i_o have_v quick_o after_o it_o in_o my_o conscience_n that_o i_o know_v i_o have_v not_o do_v well_o in_o it_o and_o it_o have_v cause_v i_o to_o cry_v sometime_o to_o god_n sure_o i_o shall_v take_v more_o care_n next_o time_n now_o if_o you_o will_v but_o keep_v to_o your_o rule_n the_o scripture_n as_o you_o reckon_v they_o methinks_v you_o need_v not_o be_v so_o much_o offend_v whenas_o the_o scripture_n speak_v against_o have_v man_n person_n in_o admiration_n because_o of_o advantage_n he_o that_o respect_v man_n person_n commit_v sin_n christ_n say_v learn_v of_o i_o i_o be_o meek_a and_o lowly_a and_o you_o shall_v find_v rest_n to_o your_o soul_n who_o learn_v lowliness_n of_o he_o will_v not_o take_v offence_n at_o those_o who_o in_o obedience_n to_o he_o speak_v his_o language_n thou_o and_o thou_o to_o a_o single_a person_n and_o who_o wear_v their_o hat_n upon_o their_o head_n for_o which_o they_o be_v make_v if_o man_n will_v but_o true_o come_v to_o serve_v the_o lord_n their_o god_n in_o their_o heart_n it_o will_v teach_v they_o better_a manner_n one_o to_o another_o than_o a_o few_o dissemble_a title_n of_o honour_n and_o worshipful_a with_o the_o cap_n and_o knee_n i_o pray_v you_o what_o do_v they_o all_o signify_v but_o to_o make_v man_n proud_a and_o there_o be_v too_o much_o of_o that_o already_o but_o this_o let_v they_o do_v do-just_o love_v mercy_n and_o walk_v humble_o with_o their_o god_n and_o then_o there_o will_v be_v no_o offence_n take_v and_o why_o shall_v you_o take_v occasion_n at_o thou_o or_o thou_o in_o the_o scripture_n you_o may_v plentiful_o see_v that_o when_o the_o servant_n of_o god_n go_v to_o declare_v his_o word_n to_o the_o king_n they_o go_v and_o say_v thou_o o_o king_n hear_v the_o word_n of_o the_o l_o rd_o and_o in_o your_o very_a prayer_n when_o you_o pray_v to_o god_n do_v you_o not_o say_v thou_o lord_n or_o thou_o god_n and_o what_o do_v you_o expect_v better_a language_n than_o you_o give_v to_o the_o god_n of_o heaven_n which_o if_o you_o shall_v say_v you_o it_o will_v be_v nonsense_n and_o people_n will_v think_v such_o be_v not_o in_o their_o wit_n as_o shall_v say_v you_o lord_z or_o you_o god_n then_o again_o this_o rule_n say_v that_o former_o it_o be_v say_v in_o the_o time_n of_o the_o law_n thou_o shall_v not_o forswear_v thyself_o but_o christ_n who_o be_v the_o
end_n of_o the_o law_n for_o righteousness_n sake_n to_o every_o one_o that_o believe_v rom._n 10.4_o say_v swear_v not_o at_o all_o but_o let_v your_o yea_o be_fw-mi yea_o and_o your_o nay_o be_v nay_o mat._n 5.34_o and_o james_n say_v above_o all_o thing_n my_o brethren_n swear_v not_o jam._n 5.12_o and_o now_o you_o can_v make_v some_o by_o your_o law_n pay_v for_o swear_v and_o other_o have_v get_v money_n by_o swear_v and_o other_o you_o will_v force_v contrary_a to_o the_o command_n of_o christ_n and_o their_o conscience_n to_o swear_v and_o because_o they_o will_v not_o swear_v they_o have_v be_v imprison_v some_o until_o death_n and_o i_o pray_v you_o do_v but_o see_v what_o confusion_n here_o be_v among_o you_o much_o more_o may_v be_v say_v from_o several_a place_n of_o the_o holy_a sc_n ipture_n as_o to_o the_o press_v of_o you_o to_o a_o holy_a godly_a live_n but_o many_o o_o you_o will_v not_o but_o even_o hate_v to_o be_v reform_v i_o very_o think_v there_o may_v be_v some_o that_o be_v tender_a heart_a that_o have_v a_o love_n for_o god_n but_o yet_o to_o leave_v all_o the_o glory_n and_o vanity_n of_o the_o world_n and_o deny_v themselves_o to_o follow_v he_o appear_v to_o they_o very_o hard_o but_o this_o you_o must_v do_v fever_n you_o know_v peace_n with_o god_n and_o as_o sure_o as_o ever_o the_o scripture_n declare_v of_o it_o for_o as_o christ_n say_v he_o that_o love_v any_o thing_n more_o than_o i_o be_v not_o worthy_a of_o i_o for_o very_o i_o do_v look_v upon_o it_o to_o be_v man_n great_a happiness_n and_o felicity_n to_o be_v a_o true_a

of_o the_o wicked_a shall_v not_o and_o therefore_o let_v they_o mock_v and_o scorn_n if_o they_o will_v the_o day_n will_v come_v that_o god_n will_v clear_v the_o innocency_n of_o his_o people_n and_o think_v not_o that_o it_o be_v impossible_a to_o know_v god_n as_o his_o people_n do_v former_o when_o it_o be_v say_v that_o they_o do_v taste_v and_o see_v how_o good_a the_o lord_n be_v and_o they_o taste_v and_o handle_v of_o the_o good_a word_n of_o life_n and_o do_v not_o think_v it_o be_v enough_o to_o believe_v as_o your_o church_n believe_v and_o because_o your_o ancesto_n s_o go_v in_o this_o way_n you_o may_v and_o what_o shall_v you_o trouble_v yourselves_o any_o further_o and_o true_o if_o i_o can_v have_v be_v satisfy_v here_o myself_o i_o will_v willing_o have_v go_v

understand_v man_n that_o i_o must_v separate_v from_o they_o and_o become_v a_o scoff_n and_o a_o scorn_n to_o they_o but_o bless_v be_v god_n he_o have_v make_v know_v himself_o spiritual_o to_o a_o

i_o have_v no_o ill_a will_n to_o any_o of_o you_o but_o my_o earnest_a desire_n be_v for_o you_o as_o for_o my_o own_o self_n to_o pray_v and_o beseech_v you_o to_o be_v reconcile_v to_o god_n and_o
