1 a Christ by proposing his graces & gifts to his Church exempteth the hypocrites which are ful with thei imagined workes & the Epicures, which are ful with their worldelie lusts & so thirst most after these waters.

1 c By waters, wine, milke, & bread, he meaneth all things necessarie to the spiritual life, as these are necessarie to this corporal life.

11 m If these smale things haue their effect, as daiely experience sheweth, muche more shal my promes which I haue made & confirmed, bring to passe the thing whichI haue spoken for your deliuerance.

12 n Read {Chap 44,23; 49,13}

13 p Of Gods deliuerance, & that he wil, neuer forsake his Church.
