Knowing that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have dominion over him. For in that he died to sin, he died once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. So do you also reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Mark viii. 1. 9.- -At that time : When there was a great multitude with Jesus, and had nothing to eat: calling his disciples together, he saith to them: I have compassion on the multitude, for behold they have now bee! with me three days, and have nothing to eat: and if I send them away fasting to their own home, they will faint in the way: for some of them came afar off.

EPISTLE. Rom. vi. 19.-Brethren: I speak à kuman thing, because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members to serve in cleanness and iniquity unto iniquity; so how yield your members to serve justice, wito sanctification.

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your truit unto sanctification, and the end life everlasting. For the wages of sin is death. But the grace of God, life everlasting in Christ Jesus our Lord.
