4 And again I command thee thou that thou  shalt pray vocally as well as in thy heart yea  before the world as well as in secret in publick  as well as in private. And thou shalt declare  glad tidings yea publish it upon the moun tains and upon eve[r]y high place and among  every people that thou shalt be permitted to  see.
