2.There

were

garments

but

for

one,

although

they

patted from one

to another

as

that Prieft-

hood

did

:

So

no

other

robe

lave

of

this one and onely

true

and

high

Pricy

mutt be

prefented

before

God

;

no

robe

of

our

owne

works

or

merits;

no

robe

made

or

woven

by

men or creatures;not

by

Popes, Saints

living

or dead, or

Angels.

We

mull

never

change

this garment;

nor

abide

to

fee any

challenge

it but the

high

Prielf our

Lord

jefus. And hence

for

ever

deter

the wicked

and

abominable

Ma(1e,

with

thole

facrilegious

Priefts,

who

ururpe chere

garments

of

le'ùs

and tell

us

they

fer

propitiatory

facrifices

for

the

fines

of

the quick

and

dead.

The theeves that

fpoilcd

Chritt

of

his

garment,

and

divided them

among

themfelves, did him

no

such

despite

as

these theeves doe,

who

rob

him

and

difrobe

him ofall

his

glory.
