1 b I haue recuered strength & glorie by the benefite of the Lord.

1 a After that she had obteined a sonne by prayer, she gaue thankes.

3 d In that ye condemne my barennes, ye shewe your pride against God.

5 / Or, many.

8 f He preferreth to honour and putteth downe according to his owne wil, thogh mans judgement be contrary.

8 g Therefore he may dispose all things according to his wil.

10 h She grounded her prayer on Jesus Christ which was to come.
