And so, in regard to this distinction 81 1, 2 | distinction between things and signs, I shall, when I speak 82 1, 2 | to discuss things first and signs afterwards. But we 83 1, 3 | others still which enjoy and use. Those things which 84 1, 3 | are objects of use assist, and (so to speak) support us 85 1, 3 | things that make us happy and rest in them. We ourselves, 86 1, 3 | ourselves, again, who enjoy and use these things, being 87 1, 3 | hindered in our course, and sometimes even led away 88 1, 3 | the pursuit of the real and proper objects of enjoyment. ~ 89 1, 4 | Chap. 4. Difference of use and enjoyment~ 90 1, 4 | wanderers in a strange country, and could not live happily away 91 1, 4 | away from our fatherland, and that we felt wretched in 92 1, 4 | wretched in our wandering, and wishing to put an end to 93 1, 4 | country through which we pass, and the very pleasure of the 94 1, 4 | motion, charm our hearts, and turning these things which 95 1, 4 | the end of our journey; and becoming engrossed in a 96 1, 4 | have wandered far from God; and if we wish to return to 97 1, 4 | means of what is material and temporary we may lay hold 98 1, 4 | that which is spiritual and eternal. ~ 99 1, 5 | enjoyment, then, are the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 100 1, 5 | are the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are 101 1, 5 | Being, supreme above all, and common to all who enjoy 102 1, 5 | Him, if He is an object, and not rather the cause of 103 1, 5 | things. Thus the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 104 1, 5 | Thus the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and each 105 1, 5 | Son and the Holy Spirit, and each of these by Himself, 106 1, 5 | these by Himself, is God, and at the same time they are 107 1, 5 | time they are all one God; and each of them by Himself 108 1, 5 | is a complete substance, and yet they are all one substance. 109 1, 5 | Father, the Son is only Son, and the Holy Spirit is only 110 1, 5 | Spirit the harmony of unity and equality; and these three 111 1, 5 | harmony of unity and equality; and these three attributes are 112 1, 5 | equal because of the Son, and all harmonious because of 113 1, 6 | more than desire to speak; and if I have said anything, 114 1, 6 | could not have been spoken. And so God is not even to be 115 1, 6 | can be called unspeakable. And this opposition of words 116 1, 6 | explained away by speech. And yet God, although nothing 117 1, 6 | worship of men's mouths, and has desired us through the 118 1, 6 | nature supreme in excellence and eternal in existence. ~ 119 1, 7 | that there are other gods, and who call them by that name, 120 1, 7 | call them by that name, and worship them as gods, their 121 1, 7 | or more exalted exists. And since men are moved by different 122 1, 7 | pertain to the intellect and soul, those of them who 123 1, 7 | of dazzling brightness, and think of it vaguely as infinite, 124 1, 7 | conceive as possessed of shape and form, according to what 125 1, 7 | place Him above all visible and bodily natures, and even 126 1, 7 | visible and bodily natures, and even above all intelligent 127 1, 7 | even above all intelligent and spiritual natures that are 128 1, 7 | exists a superior is God. And so all concur in believing 129 1, 8 | And since all who think about 130 1, 8 | of Him that is not absurd and unworthy who think of Him 131 1, 8 | think of Him as life itself; and, whatever may be the bodily 132 1, 8 | lives or does not live, and prefer what is living to 133 1, 8 | splendour, overtop them in size, and excel them in beauty, is 134 1, 8 | by which it is quickened; and who look upon the life as 135 1, 8 | incomparably superior in dignity and worth to the mass which 136 1, 8 | mass which is quickened and animated by it. Then, when 137 1, 8 | such as that of cattle; and above this, again, they 138 1, 8 | life, such as that of men. And, perceiving that even this 139 1, 8 | itself never was unwise, and never can become so. And 140 1, 8 | and never can become so. And if men never caught sight 141 1, 8 | is itself unchangeable: and they cannot find such a 142 1, 9 | in the minds of all men, and presented to their common 143 1, 9 | their common contemplation. And the man who does not see 144 1, 9 | splendour of its light, so clear and so near, is poured into 145 1, 9 | the shadows of the flesh. And thus men are driven back 146 1, 9 | contrary blasts of evil habits, and pursue lower and less valuable 147 1, 9 | habits, and pursue lower and less valuable objects in 148 1, 9 | own to be more excellent and more worthy. ~ 149 1, 10 | which lives unchangeably, and truth for the things which 150 1, 10 | to perceive that light, and to rest in it when it is 151 1, 10 | it when it is perceived. And let us look upon this purification 152 1, 10 | cultivation of pure desires and virtuous habits. ~ 153 1, 11 | Himself to our weakness, and to show us a pattern of 154 1, 11 | have done very foolishly. And since we when we come to 155 1, 11 | of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger 156 1, 11 | God is stronger than men." And thus, though Wisdom was 157 1, 12 | And though He is everywhere 158 1, 12 | inner eye when it is sound and clear, He condescended to 159 1, 12 | whose inward sight is weak and dim. "For after that, in 160 1, 12 | that "He was in the world, and the world was made by Him." 161 1, 12 | likeness of this world, and are therefore most appropriately 162 1, 12 | therefore the evangelist says, "and the world knew Him not." 163 1, 13 | The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us"? Just as 164 1, 13 | becomes an outward sound and is called speech; and yet 165 1, 13 | sound and is called speech; and yet our thought does not 166 1, 13 | remains complete in itself, and takes the form of speech 167 1, 14 | took up sinners to heal and restore them. And just as 168 1, 14 | to heal and restore them. And just as surgeons, when they 169 1, 14 | of them by their likes. And just as he who ministers 170 1, 14 | hot, moist to dry, etc., and in other cases applies likes, 171 1, 14 | cloth to an oblong wound, and does not fit the same bandage 172 1, 14 | cure, being Himself healer and medicine both in one. Seeing, 173 1, 14 | same shape as the limbs and wounds to which they are 174 1, 14 | to save us who were dead. And those who can follow out 175 1, 15 | buttressed by the resurrection and ascension of Christ, and 176 1, 15 | and ascension of Christ, and is stimulated by His coming 177 1, 15 | our Lord from the dead, and of His ascension into heaven, 178 1, 15 | were still in unbelief! And when men look for Him to 179 1, 15 | heaven as the judge of quick and dead, it strikes great terror 180 1, 15 | to diligent preparation, and learn by holy living to 181 1, 15 | account of their evil deeds. And what tongue can tell, or 182 1, 15 | retain our confidence in, and love for, Him whom as yet 183 1, 15 | whom as yet we see not; and that He has also given to 184 1, 16 | apostle's teaching shows us;and it is even called His spouse. 185 1, 16 | which has many members, and all performing different 186 1, 16 | together in the bond of unity and love, which is its true 187 1, 16 | it in the present time, and purges it with many wholesome 188 1, 17 | when we are on the way, and that not a way that lies 189 1, 17 | a change of affections, and one which the guilt of our 190 1, 17 | would be still gracious and more merciful, except to 191 1, 17 | forgive us all our sins, and by being crucified for us 192 1, 18 | might be bound in heaven, and whatsoever it should loose 193 1, 18 | whosoever should believe, and should repent, and turn 194 1, 18 | believe, and should repent, and turn from his sins, should 195 1, 18 | saved by the same faith and repentance on the ground 196 1, 18 | pardoned, falls into despair, and becomes worse, as if no 197 1, 19 | chap. 19. Bodily and spiritual death and resurrection~ 198 1, 19 | Bodily and spiritual death and resurrection~ 199 1, 19 | putting away of former habits and former ways of life, and 200 1, 19 | and former ways of life, and which comes through repentance, 201 1, 19 | former principle of life. And just as the soul, after 202 1, 19 | soul, after it has put away and destroyed by repentance 203 1, 19 | pattern, so we must hope and believe that the body, after 204 1, 19 | better form; not that flesh and blood shall inherit the 205 1, 19 | shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on 206 1, 19 | shall put on immortality. And thus the body, being the 207 1, 19 | a spirit perfectly pure and happy, and shall enjoy unbroken 208 1, 19 | perfectly pure and happy, and shall enjoy unbroken peace. ~ 209 1, 20 | does not die to this world and begin here to be conformed 210 1, 20 | into a more terrible death, and shall revive, not to change 211 1, 21 | And so faith clings to the assurance, 212 1, 21 | clings to the assurance, and we must believe that it 213 1, 21 | inconceivable punishment, and the good to receive eternal 214 1, 22 | have spoken of as eternal and unchangeable. The rest are 215 1, 22 | We, however, who enjoy and use other things are things 216 1, 22 | man, made after the image and similitude of God, not as 217 1, 22 | honour above the beasts. And so it becomes an important 218 1, 22 | towards the unchangeable life, and his affections are entirely 219 1, 22 | his mind in upon himself, and so is not occupied with 220 1, 22 | anything that is unchangeable. And thus he does not enjoy himself 221 1, 22 | mind is fully fixed upon, and his affections wrapped up 222 1, 22 | God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with 223 1, 22 | and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind:" so that 224 1, 22 | thoughts, your whole life, and your whole intelligence 225 1, 22 | says, "With all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with 226 1, 22 | and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind," He means 227 1, 22 | life is to be unoccupied, and to afford room, as it were, 228 1, 22 | God with his whole heart, and soul, and mind. For in this 229 1, 22 | his whole heart, and soul, and mind. For in this way, loving 230 1, 22 | his love both for himself and his neighbour into the channel 231 1, 23 | injunction to love himself and his own body~ 232 1, 23 | be given about the second and fourth of these. For, however 233 1, 23 | continues to love himself, and to love his own body. The 234 1, 23 | it may rule over itself and over its own body; and so 235 1, 23 | itself and over its own body; and so it cannot but love both 236 1, 23 | cannot but love both itself and its own body. ~ 237 1, 23 | desire above all things, and to claim as due to itself, 238 1, 23 | not obey its own superior; and most justly has it been 239 1, 23 | iniquity hateth his own soul." And accordingly the soul becomes 240 1, 23 | accordingly the soul becomes weak, and endures much suffering about 241 1, 23 | it must love the body, and be grieved at its corruption; 242 1, 23 | grieved at its corruption; and the immortality and incorruptibility 243 1, 23 | corruption; and the immortality and incorruptibility of the 244 1, 24 | yet hated his own flesh." And when some people say that 245 1, 24 | body, but its corruptions and its heaviness, that they 246 1, 24 | heaviness, that they hate. And so it is not no body, but 247 1, 24 | body, but an uncorrupted and very light body, that they 248 1, 24 | as that must be a spirit. And as to the fact that they 249 1, 24 | their bodies by abstinence and toil, those who do this 250 1, 24 | may have it in subjection and ready for every needful 251 1, 24 | body, that is, those habits and affections of the soul that 252 1, 24 | it were a natural enemy. And in this matter they are 253 1, 24 | lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh, 254 1, 24 | spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary the one 255 1, 24 | body i.e., its evil habit and thus to make it subject 256 1, 24 | not war against the soul. And until this shall take place, " 257 1, 24 | lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh;" 258 1, 24 | to the higher principle; and the fleshy struggling, not 259 1, 24 | derived from its parent stock, and which has grown in upon 260 1, 24 | peace of an evil habit, and to bring about the real 261 1, 24 | without suffering any pain, and that they had as much sight 262 1, 24 | overbalance the loss. This and other indications of the 263 1, 24 | adds too, "but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the 264 1, 25 | that he does love himself, and does desire to do good to 265 1, 25 | as to care for it wisely and within due limits. For it 266 1, 25 | he loves his body also, and desires to keep it safe 267 1, 25 | desires to keep it safe and sound. And yet a man may 268 1, 25 | keep it safe and sound. And yet a man may have something 269 1, 25 | loves better than the safety and soundness of his body. For 270 1, 25 | voluntarily to suffer both pains and amputations of some of their 271 1, 25 | not to desire the safety and health of his body because 272 1, 25 | that he is very fond of and desires to heap up, but 273 1, 26 | The command to love God and our neighbour includes a 274 1, 26 | man should love himself and his own body, seeing, that 275 1, 26 | that we love ourselves, and what is beneath us but connected 276 1, 26 | has never been violated, and which is common to us with 277 1, 26 | the beasts love themselves and their own bodies), it only 278 1, 26 | regard to God above us, and our neighbour beside us. " 279 1, 26 | God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with 280 1, 26 | and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind; and thou 281 1, 26 | and with all thy mind; and thou shalt love thy neighbour 282 1, 26 | commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Thus the 283 1, 26 | the commandment is love, and that twofold, the love of 284 1, 26 | twofold, the love of God and the love of our neighbour. 285 1, 26 | entirety, that is, soul and body together, and your 286 1, 26 | soul and body together, and your neighbour in his entirety, 287 1, 26 | neighbour in his entirety, soul and body together (for man is 288 1, 26 | for man is made up of soul and body), you will find that 289 1, 26 | love of God comes first, and the measure of our love 290 1, 27 | Now he is a man of just and holy life who forms an unprejudiced 291 1, 27 | unprejudiced estimate of things, and keeps his affections also 292 1, 27 | to be loved as a sinner; and every man is to be loved 293 1, 27 | loved for His own sake. And if God is to be loved more 294 1, 27 | loved in reference to God, and another man can have fellowship 295 1, 27 | lives through the soul, and it is by the soul that we 296 1, 28 | deal of some commodity, and felt bound to give it away 297 1, 28 | to somebody who had none, and that it could not be given 298 1, 29 | chap. 29. We are to desire and endeavour that all men may 299 1, 29 | both help us in our need and in turn are helped by us, 300 1, 29 | whom we confer no advantage and from whom we look for none. 301 1, 29 | join with us in loving God, and all the assistance that 302 1, 29 | fond of a particular actor, and enjoys his art as a great 303 1, 29 | whom they admire in common; and the more fervent he is in 304 1, 29 | secure new admirers for him, and the more anxious he becomes 305 1, 29 | becomes to show him to others; and if he find any one comparatively 306 1, 29 | contempt of his favourite, and strives in every way he 307 1, 29 | both their own existence and the love they bear Him, 308 1, 29 | be disappointed in Him, and who desires our love, not 309 1, 29 | Himself whom they love? And hence it is that we love 310 1, 29 | Him as the supreme good, and love us too as partakers 311 1, 30 | Him whom we long to enjoy; and the more we enjoy Him in 312 1, 30 | to bear our pilgrimage, and the more eagerly do we long 313 1, 30 | Lord Himself in the Gospel, and by the Apostle Paul. For 314 1, 30 | those two commandments, and to whom He said that on 315 1, 30 | on these hang all the law and the prophets, asked Him, " 316 1, 30 | the prophets, asked Him, "And who is my neighbour?" He 317 1, 30 | Jericho, fell among thieves, and was severely wounded by 318 1, 30 | severely wounded by them, and left naked and half dead. 319 1, 30 | by them, and left naked and half dead. And He showed 320 1, 30 | left naked and half dead. And He showed him that nobody 321 1, 30 | him who took pity upon him and came forward to relieve 322 1, 30 | came forward to relieve and care for him. And the man 323 1, 30 | relieve and care for him. And the man who had asked the 324 1, 30 | whom our Lord says, "Go and do thou likewise;" teaching 325 1, 30 | neighbour" is a relative one, and no one can be neighbour 326 1, 30 | neighbour except to a neighbour. And, again, who does not see 327 1, 30 | And so also the Apostle Paul 328 1, 30 | witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, 329 1, 30 | what is at once most absurd and most pernicious, that the 330 1, 30 | or to covet his goods. And as nobody but a fool would 331 1, 30 | passages of Holy Scripture. And on this ground even God 332 1, 30 | dead on the road, wounded and abandoned by the robbers. 333 1, 30 | abandoned by the robbers. And the Psalmist says in his 334 1, 30 | higher excellence than, and far removed above, our nature, 335 1, 31 | And on this ground, when we 336 1, 31 | we love for its own sake, and that nothing is a true object 337 1, 31 | that which makes us happy, and that all other things are 338 1, 31 | explanation. For God loves us, and Holy Scripture frequently 339 1, 31 | in need of good from us, and no sane man will say that; 340 1, 31 | what comes from Himself. And no one can be ignorant or 341 1, 32 | because He is good we exist; and so far as we truly exist 342 1, 32 | truly exist we are good. And, further, because He is 343 1, 32 | cannot with impunity be evil; and so far as we are evil, so 344 1, 32 | complete. Now He is the first and supreme existence, who is 345 1, 32 | altogether unchangeable, and who could say in the fullest 346 1, 32 | words, "I AM THAT I AM," and "Thou shalt say to them, 347 1, 32 | existence entirely to Him, and are good only so far as 348 1, 32 | advantage, but to ours only; and, so far as He is concerned, 349 1, 32 | we take pity upon a man and care for him, it is for 350 1, 32 | should fully enjoy Him, and that all who enjoy Him should 351 1, 33 | stop short upon the road, and place our hope of happiness 352 1, 33 | angel. Now the proud man and the proud angel arrogate 353 1, 33 | arrogate this to themselves, and are glad to have the hope 354 1, 33 | the contrary, the holy man and the holy angel, even when 355 1, 33 | even when we are weary and anxious to stay with them 356 1, 33 | anxious to stay with them and rest in them, set themselves 357 1, 33 | for us or for themselves; and then urge us thus refreshed 358 1, 33 | baptized in the name of Paul?" And again: "Neither is he that 359 1, 33 | that giveth the increase." And the angel admonisheth the 360 1, 33 | worship Him who is his Master, and under whom he himself is 361 1, 33 | whom you are made happy, and you rejoice to have come 362 1, 33 | place your hope of joy. And accordingly, Paul says to 363 1, 33 | should bring delight with it. And if you pass beyond this 364 1, 33 | pass beyond this delight, and make it a means to that 365 1, 33 | rest in, you are using it, and it is an abuse of language 366 1, 33 | But if you cling to it, and rest in it, finding your 367 1, 33 | it, then you may be truly and properly said to enjoy it. 368 1, 33 | properly said to enjoy it. And this we must never do except 369 1, 33 | Trinity, who is the Supreme and Unchangeable God. ~ 370 1, 34 | And mark that even when He who 371 1, 34 | who is Himself the Truth and the Word, by whom all things 372 1, 34 | although still on the way, and following after God who 373 1, 34 | things which were behind, and pressing on towards those 374 1, 34 | the beginning of the way, and had now no further need 375 1, 34 | to attain to the truth, and to rest in eternal life. 376 1, 34 | He says: "I am the way, and the truth, and the life;" 377 1, 34 | the way, and the truth, and the life;" that is, by me 378 1, 34 | equal an equal is known; and the Holy Spirit binds, and 379 1, 34 | and the Holy Spirit binds, and as it were seals us, so 380 1, 34 | permanently in the supreme and unchangeable God. And hence 381 1, 34 | supreme and unchangeable God. And hence we may learn how essential 382 1, 34 | wishes us rather to press on; and, instead of weakly clinging 383 1, 34 | though these have been put on and worn by Him for our salvation, 384 1, 34 | pass over them quickly, and to struggle to attain unto 385 1, 34 | bondage of temporal things, and has set it down at the right 386 1, 35 | chap. 35. The fulfilment and end of Scripture is the 387 1, 35 | Scripture is the love of God and our neighbour~ 388 1, 35 | understand that the fulfilment and the end of the Law, and 389 1, 35 | and the end of the Law, and of all Holy Scripture, is 390 1, 35 | which is to be enjoyed, and the love of an object which 391 1, 35 | we might know this truth and be able to act upon it; 392 1, 35 | be able to act upon it; and we ought to use that dispensation, 393 1, 35 | dispensation, not with such love and delight as if it were a 394 1, 36 | this twofold love of God and our neighbour, does not 395 1, 36 | error is not pernicious, and he is wholly clear from 396 1, 36 | intention to say what is false; and we find plenty of people 397 1, 36 | knows practices deceit, and the ignorant man is practiced 398 1, 36 | lies commits an injustice; and if any man thinks that a 399 1, 36 | place confidence in him; and yet he betrays his confidence 400 1, 36 | to be corrected, however, and to be shown how much better 401 1, 37 | harmonize with this meaning. And if he admits that these 402 1, 37 | these statements are true and certain, then it follows 403 1, 37 | cannot be the true one: and so it comes to pass, one 404 1, 37 | than he is with himself. And if he should once permit 405 1, 37 | Scripture begin to shake. And then, if faith totter, love 406 1, 37 | But if he both believes and loves, then through good 407 1, 37 | then through good works, and through diligent attention 408 1, 37 | the object of his love. And so these are the three things 409 1, 37 | things to which all knowledge and all prophecy are subservient: 410 1, 38 | sight shall displace faith; and hope shall be swallowed 411 1, 38 | it when we begin to see! And if we love by hope that 412 1, 38 | between things temporal and things eternal, that a temporal 413 1, 38 | more before we possess it, and begins to prove worthless 414 1, 38 | which has its only true and sure resting-place in eternity: 415 1, 39 | is mature in faith hope and love, needs Scripture no 416 1, 39 | And thus a man who is resting 417 1, 39 | resting upon faith, hope and love, and who keeps a firm 418 1, 39 | upon faith, hope and love, and who keeps a firm hold upon 419 1, 39 | great an edifice of faith and love has been built up in 420 1, 39 | life, the life of no just and holy man is perfect here. 421 1, 39 | love will remain greater and more assured. ~ 422 1, 40 | And, therefore, if a man fully 423 1, 40 | charity, out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and 424 1, 40 | and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned," and 425 1, 40 | and of faith unfeigned," and is bent upon making all 426 1, 40 | which is worthy of love. And he joins with this "a good 427 1, 40 | that which he believes in and loves. And in the third 428 1, 40 | he believes in and loves. And in the third place he says: " 429 1, 40 | the third place he says: "and of faith unfeigned." For 430 1, 40 | is unworthy of our love, and by living uprightly we are 431 1, 40 | by others or by myself. And so let this be the end of 432 2, arg | defines what a sign is, and shows that there are two 433 2, arg | classes of signs, the natural and the conventional. Of conventional 434 2, arg | words are the most numerous and important, and are those 435 2, arg | numerous and important, and are those with which the 436 2, arg | concerned. The difficulties and obscurities of Scripture 437 2, arg | from two sources, unknown and ambiguous signs. The present 438 2, arg | removed by learning the Greek and Hebrew languages, in which 439 2, arg | the various translations, and by attending to the context. 440 2, arg | necessary as knowledge of words; and the various sciences and 441 2, arg | and the various sciences and arts of the heathen, so 442 2, arg | so far as they are true and useful, may be turned to 443 2, arg | Whilst exposing the folly and futility of many heathen 444 2, arg | many heathen superstitions and practices, the author points 445 2, arg | out how all that is sound and useful in their science 446 2, arg | useful in their science and philosophy may be turned 447 2, arg | turned to a Christian use. And in conclusion, he shows 448 2, arg | address ourselves to the study and interpretation of the sacred 449 2, 1 | 1. Signs, their nature and variety~ 450 2, 1 | sign is a thing which, over and above the impression it 451 2, 1 | footprint this is has passed by; and when we see smoke, we know 452 2, 1 | that there is fire beneath; and when we hear the voice of 453 2, 1 | the feeling in his mind; and when the trumpet sounds, 454 2, 1 | nothing but smoke can be seen. And the footprint of an animal 455 2, 1 | to this class of signs. And the countenance of an angry 456 2, 1 | independently of his will: and in the same way every other 457 2, 2 | desire of drawing forth and conveying into another's 458 2, 2 | wish, then, to consider and discuss this class of signs 459 2, 2 | have been given us of God, and which are contained in the 460 2, 2 | for the hen to run to him, and the dove by cooing calls 461 2, 2 | is called by her in turn; and many signs of the same kind 462 2, 2 | of the mind instinctively and apart from any purpose, 463 2, 2 | signification, is another question, and does not pertain to the 464 2, 2 | pertain to the matter in hand. And this part of the subject 465 2, 3 | sign to impart our desire. And some convey a great deal 466 2, 3 | the motion of the hands: and actors by movements of all 467 2, 3 | signs to the initiated, and, so to speak, address their 468 2, 3 | conversation to the eyes: and the military standards and 469 2, 3 | and the military standards and flags convey through the 470 2, 3 | will of the commanders. And all these signs are as it 471 2, 3 | have said, more numerous, and for the most part consist 472 2, 3 | words. For though the bugle and the flute and the lyre frequently 473 2, 3 | the bugle and the flute and the lyre frequently give 474 2, 3 | words have obtained far and away the chief place as 475 2, 3 | poured out upon His feet; and in the sacrament of His 476 2, 3 | the sacrament of His body and blood He signified His will 477 2, 3 | through the sense of taste; and when by touching the hem 478 2, 4 | they strike upon the air, and last no longer than their 479 2, 4 | chief place for himself. And that celebrated tower which 480 2, 4 | this arrogance of spirit; and the ungodly men concerned 481 2, 4 | besides, thrown into confusion and discordance. ~ 482 2, 5 | And hence it happened that even 483 2, 5 | interpreted into various tongues, and spread far and wide, and 484 2, 5 | tongues, and spread far and wide, and thus became known 485 2, 5 | and spread far and wide, and thus became known to the 486 2, 5 | nations for their salvation. And in reading it, men seek 487 2, 5 | to find out the thought and will of those by whom it 488 2, 5 | by whom it was written, and through these to find out 489 2, 6 | But hasty and careless readers are led 490 2, 6 | readers are led astray by many and manifold obscurities and 491 2, 6 | and manifold obscurities and ambiguities, substituting 492 2, 6 | one meaning for another; and in some places they cannot 493 2, 6 | in the thickest darkness. And I do not doubt that all 494 2, 6 | subduing pride by toil, and of preventing a feeling 495 2, 6 | says that there are holy and just men whose life and 496 2, 6 | and just men whose life and conversation the Church 497 2, 6 | kinds of superstitions, and making them through their 498 2, 6 | own body; men who, as good and true servants of God, have 499 2, 6 | the burdens of the world, and who rising thence do, through 500 2, 6 | a love, that is, of God and their neighbour; how is
