Where fore, it behooveth me, that he should be ordain ed by you, , mine apostle; this  being an ordinance unto you, that you are an  elder under his hand, he being the first unto  you, that you might be an elder unto this church  of Christ, bearing my name; and the first  preacher of this church, unto the church, and  before the world: yea, before the Gentiles; yea,  and thus saith the Lord God, lo, lo, to the  Jews, also: Amen.
