9 h Whome God of fre mercie calleth to be partakers of his heauenlie graces, & deliuereth from filthie pollucions of Antichrist.

9 g That is, the Angel.

10 i Who am charged to testifie of Jesus, or which am partaker of the same Gospel & faith.

10 k He sheweth that none oght to be worshiped but onely God, & that he is of their nomber whome God vseth to reueile his secrets by to the Prophetes, that they may declare them to others, also that we must beleue no other spirit of prophecie, but that which doeth testifie of Jesus, and lead vs to him.
