And again when I reflect upon what I have done all is for the good of those who love god. And why take <​ye​> he thought for ye cannot add one cubet to your statu[r]e These are cheering which rebounds [redounds] unto the glory of the Lord our God that we may kno[w] of a surety that the lord our God will proceede to make bare his holy arm in the eyes of all nations weald in the strength of his power that all the ends of the earth may see his salvation and come to the k[n]owledge of the Lord our God.
