4 a Because this riuer Periath or Euphrates was farre from Jerusalem, it is eiudent, that this was a vision, whereby was signified that the Jewes shulde passe ouer Euphrates to be captiues, in Babylon & therefor length of time shulde seme to be rotten: althogh they were joyned to the Lord before as a girdle about a man.

26 m As thine iniquities haue bene manifest to all the worlde: so shal thy shame, & punishment.

27 n He compareth idolaters to horses inflamed after mares.

27 o There is no place so hie nor lo, where as the markes and signes of thine idolatrie appeare not.
