1 a Which were idolaters.

3 b To whome apperteined no dowry.

5 d Who was also called Molech {vers 7} read {2 King. 23,10}

7 e Thus the Scripture temeth, whatsoeuer man doeth reverence and serue as God

28 o He was ouer seer of Salomons workes for the tribe of Ephraim and Manasseh.

30 p By these visible signes the Prophetes wolde more depely printe their message in their hearts, to whome thei were sent.
