10 e Read {Chap. 16,11}

25 g That is, to applie it, or take it to his owne vse, which was appointed to Gods, and then inquire how thei maie be exempted from the faute.

27 i the worde of God giueth life vnto man, and causeth vs to se & trye the secrets of our darke hearts, {Ebr. 4, 12}

30 k Sharpe punishement, that perceth euen the inward partes, is profitable for the wicked, to bring them to amendement.
