And ye make the wrath more yet vpon Israel, in that ye breake the Sabbath 19 And when the portes of Hierusalem began to be darke in the euening before the Sabbath, I commaunded to shut the gates, and charged that they should not be opened till after the Sabbath: and some of my seruauntes set I at the gates, that there shoulde no burthen be brought in on the Sabbath day 20 Then remayned the chapmen and marchauntes once or twyse ouer night without Hierusalem with all maner of wares
