Bind Variables Passed from command line to script

I have the following SQL Script

  SET echo off       ;
  SET feedback off   ;
  SET heading off    ;
  SET newpage 0      ;
  SET pagesize 0     ;
  SET underline off  ;
FROM   persons p
WHERE  p.id = &2 ;

When it's run the contents of the spool file are:
old   4: WHERE  p.id = &2
new   4: WHERE  p.id = 203762

Can anyone tell me how to suppress the display of the lines
old   4: WHERE  p.id = &2
new   4: WHERE  p.id = 203762
so they don't appear in the output?
