and enforced by several reasons taken from the foundation on which
Christians are built, Jesus Christ, and from their spiritual

Particular directions are given how subjects ought to obey the
magistrates, and servants their masters, patiently suffering in
well doing, in imitation of Christ, ver. 13, to the end.
