Let us therefore in all things believe the word of God delivered to us by the scriptures. Let us think that the Lord himself, which is the very living and eternal God, doth speak to us by the scriptures. Let us for evermore praise the name and goodness of him, who hath vouchsafe so faithfully, fully, and plainly to open to us, miserable mortal men, all the means how to live well and holily.
To him be praise, honour and glory for evermore. Amen.
THE FIRST SERMON: OF THE WORD OF GOD; THE CAUSE OF IT;
AND HOW, AND BY WHOM, IT WAS REVEALED TO THE WORLD
