  2. Galatians 6:14 He sticketh not to compare himself with them, showing that on the contrary part he rejoiceth in those afflictions which he suffereth for Christ’s sake, and as he is despised of the world, so doth he in like sort esteem the world as naught: which is the true circumcision of a true Israelite.
  3. Galatians 6:14 When Paul useth this word in good sense of part, it signifieth to rest a man’s self wholly in a thing, and to content himself therewith.
