8 a He reproueth their ambition, which desire to fit in the hiest places.

21 d Here is signified the calling of the Gentiles.

23 f This compulsion cometh of the feling of the power of Gods worde, after that his worde hathe bene preached.

26 g That is, he that casteth not of all affections and desires which drawe vs from Christ.
