In which book he hath declared many perverse things against the people of God (called Quakers,) and for so much as is considerable, wherein that people are any way concerned, it is in the power of God here answered, by one who is set for the defence of the Gospel, William Smith.

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

it_o for_o it_o be_v the_o light_n which_o come_v from_o christ_n the_o sun_n of_o righteousness_n which_o we_o preach_v and_o we_o know_v that_o there_o be_v not_o another_o name_n give_v under_o

in_o all_o we_o know_v say_v thou_o that_o it_o be_v but_o a_o changeling_n and_o not_o the_o genuine_a offspring_n of_o the_o spirit_n answ_n thou_o have_v say_v no_o light_n for_o salvation_n but_o from_o christ_n and_o now_o say_v the_o light_n within_o be_v a_o changeling_n and_o this_o be_v not_o agreeable_a with_o the_o apostle_n doctrine_n who_o say_v the_o light_n that_o shine_v in_o our_o

from_o the_o nature_n of_o christ_n be_v save_v to_o all_o that_o believe_v in_o it_o but_o the_o condemnation_n of_o such_o as_o believe_v not_o and_o therefore_o we_o say_v that_o the_o light_n of_o
