And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the spirit or adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The SPIRIT itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of GOD. And if children, then heirs ; heirs of GoD, and joint heirs with CHRIST: if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
