Rochester Institute of Technology Leaf 37 Recto
géntium dedit illi Dóminus, et testaméntum confirmávit super caput eius. Cognóvit eum in benedictiónibus suis, et dedit illi hæreditátem, et divísit illi partem in tríbubus duódecim. Magnificávit eum in conspéctu regum, et dedit illi coronam glorie. Státuit illi testaméntum sempitérnum, et dedit illi sacerdótium magnum, et beatificávit illum in glória. [2 sentences untranscribed.] [ ] ii.x.f.

Útinam sustinerétis módicum quid insipiéntiæ meæ, sed et supportáre me: ǽmulor enim vos Dei æmulatióne. Despóndi enim vos uni viro, vírginem castam exhibére Christo. In Sancti Thomae. Ad Ephesios. ii.f.

Brothers. [1 Corinthians 1:31] He that glorieth, may glory in the Lord. [2 Corinthians 10:18] For not he who commendeth himself, is approved, but he, whom God commendeth. [2 Corinthians 11:1-2] Would to God you could bear with some little of my folly: but do bear with me. 2 For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God. For I have espoused you to one husband that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. In St. Thomas. Ephesians. 2.f.
Brothers. [Ephesians 2:19] Therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners; but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and the domestics of God...
