company come unto him, he faith unto Philip, Whence Diall we buy bread that these may eat?(And this he said to prove him : for he himself knew what he would do) Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread,is not sufficient for them that every oil of them may take a little.

The Epistle. Rom. 10.4. IE thou shalt confefs with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, F and shalt believe in thine heart, that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt bé faved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteoufness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture faith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek : For the fame Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed ? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach except they be sent ? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things ! But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. For Efaias faith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I I fay, Have they not heard ? Yes verily, their found went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. But I say, Did not Israel know? First Mofes saith, I will provoke you to jealousie by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. But Efaias is very bold, and faith, I was found of them that fought me not,I was made manife’t unto them that asked not after me. But to Israel he faith, All day long! have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
