9:1 Wherefore, let us submit ourselves to his excellent and glorious will, and, becoming suppliants of his mercy and goodness, let us fall before him and betake ourselves to his mercies, having laid aside the vain toil and the strife and the jealousy that leadeth unto death.
9:2 Let us look steadfastly at those that have ministered with perfectness to his excellent glory.
9:3 Let us take as example Enoch, who, having been found just by reason of obedience, was translated, and his death was not found.
9:4 Noah, having been found faithful, preached, by his ministry, regeneration unto the world, and by him God preserved the animals that entered with one consent into the ark.
Have mercy, O Lord, upon Thy servant the translator Charles and upon the Athenæum of Christian Antiquity.
