Chapter 3

Elders ordain priests and teachers by the laying on of hands. About A.D. 401–421.

 The manner which the disciples, who were called the aelders of the church, bordained cpriests and teachers—

 After they had prayed unto the Father in the name of Christ, they alaid their hands upon them, and said:

 In the name of Jesus Christ I ordain you to be a priest (or if he be a ateacher, I ordain you to be a teacher) to preach repentance and bremission of sins through Jesus Christ, by the endurance of faith on his name to the end. Amen.

 And after this manner did they aordain priests and teachers, according to the bgifts and callings of God unto men; and they ordained them by the cpower of the Holy Ghost, which was in them.
