<HEAD>The seconde Epistle of S. Paule to Timothie. Chapter. I.</HEAD>
<P N="1">1 Paule an Apostle of Iesus Christe, by the will of God, according to the promise of life, which is in Iesus Christ.</P>
<P N="2">2 To Timothie my verie deare Sonne grace, mercie and peace, from God the father and from our Lorde Iesus Christ.</P></Q></EPIGRAPH>
<P>THough in all that S. Paule hath left vs in writinges, we haue to consi|der that it is God that spake to vs by the mouthe of a mortall man, and wee must receiue his doctrine with suche authoritie and reuerence, as if God shewed himselfe from hea|uen
<MILESTONE N="30"> to be sene with our eyes, yet notwithsta~ding ther is one thing more to be considered off in this Epistle, then in the other, and it is this, that S. Paule beeing now in prison, and seeing his death at hande, meant to confirme his faith in this place, as if he had sea|led it with his owne blood. And there fore so oft as we reade this
<MILESTONE N="40"> Epistle, let vs lay that stat before our eyes that S. Paule was then in, to wit, that he looked for no|thing but to die for the witnes of the Gospell, as he did indeed as bearing y^e standard before vs, to put vs more out of doubte of his doctrin, and then we shal be touched to the quicke. As no doubte if a man reade this Epi|stle diligently he shall finde the Spirite of God shewe him selfe in such sorte, and in such a ma|iestie and vertue, that whether hee will or no, he shall bee as it were rauished with it. As for me, I know I haue profited, &amp; do dai+ly profite more by this Epistle, then by any booke of the scrip|ture, and if euerie man wil looke into it diligently, I doubte not but he shall finde the like.</P>
<P>And if wee desire to haue witnesse of GODS truethe
