But as the Divine nature is of 106 1, 31 | way then does He love us? As objects of use or as objects 107 1, 31 | us? As objects of use or as objects of enjoyment?

If, on the other 119 1, 36 | Scripture. Nevertheless, as I was going to say, if his 120 1, 36 | astray in much the same way as a man who by mistake quits 121 1, 38 | love by faith that which as yet we see not, how much 122 1, 38 | love by hope that which as yet we have not reached, 123 1, 38 | really belongs to it, so as to think it comparatively 124 1, 39 | means of these instruments (as they may be called), so 125 1, 39 | of course, I mean, so far as is possible in this life; 126 1, 40 | about the objects of faith, as far as I thought it necessary 127 1, 40 | objects of faith, as far as I thought it necessary for 128 1, 40 | the next I shall discuss, as far as God shall give me 129 1, 40 | I shall discuss, as far as God shall give me light, 130 2, arg | knowledge of things is as necessary as knowledge of 131 2, arg | of things is as necessary as knowledge of words; and 132 2, arg | arts of the heathen, so far as they are true and useful, 133 2, 1 | As when I was writing about 134 2, 1 | else to come into the mind as a consequence of itself: 135 2, 1 | a consequence of itself: as when we see a footprint, 136 2, 1 | or desire of using them as signs, do yet lead to the 137 2, 1 | knowledge of something else, as, for example, smoke when 138 2, 1 | discuss at present. But as it comes under this division 139 2, 2 | the purpose of showing, as well as they can, the feelings 140 2, 2 | purpose of showing, as well as they can, the feelings of 141 2, 2 | this class of signs so far as men are concerned with it, 142 2, 2 | from the scope of this work as not necessary to my present 143 2, 3 | And all these signs are as it were a kind of visible 144 2, 3 | themselves to the ear are, as I have said, more numerous, 145 2, 3 | and away the chief place as a means of indicating the 146 2, 4 | because words pass away as soon as they strike upon 147 2, 4 | words pass away as soon as they strike upon the air, 148 2, 4 | to the eye, not of course as sounds, but by means of 149 2, 6 | expressions are so obscure as to shroud the meaning in 150 2, 6 | the Church of Christ uses as a means of redeeming those 151 2, 6 | of its own body; men who, as good and true servants of 152 2, 6 | please his hearer so much as when he draws the same meaning 153 2, 6 | holy men, when I view them as the teeth of the Church, 154 2, 6 | harshness softened down, just as if they had been torn off 155 2, 6 | arranged the Holy Scriptures as by the plainer passages 156 2, 7 | all the motions of pride as if our flesh were nailed 157 2, 7 | not understood, we feel as if we could be wiser and 158 2, 7 | mind, and one's neighbour as one's self that is, in such 159 2, 7 | a love for his neighbour as Scripture enjoins. Then 160 2, 7 | which can see God, so far as God can be seen by those 161 2, 7 | can be seen by those who as far as possible die to this 162 2, 7 | seen by those who as far as possible die to this world. 163 2, 7 | men see Him just so far as they die to this world; 164 2, 7 | to this world; and so far as they live to it they see 165 2, 7 | while we continue to wander as strangers in this world, 166 2, 7 | the eye of his affections as not to place his neighbour 167 2, 7 | because not him whom he loves as himself. Accordingly, that 168 2, 8 | myself to speak and reason as the Lord shall grant me 169 2, 8 | still with such knowledge as reading gives, those of 170 2, 8 | place must be given to such as have been thought worthy 171 2, 8 | all, he will prefer such as have the sanction of the 172 2, 8 | greater authority, to such as are held by the smaller 173 2, 8 | sides is to be looked upon as equal. ~ 174 2, 8 | nor with one another, such as Job, and Tobias, and Esther, 175 2, 8 | have attained recognition as being authoritative. The 176 2, 8 | disjoined, are reckoned as one book; the names of these 177 2, 8 | names of these prophets are as follows: Hosea, Joel, Amos, 178 2, 9 | rule to be observed is, as I said, to know these books, 179 2, 9 | understanding, still to read them so as to commit them to memory, 180 2, 9 | to memory, or at least so as not to remain wholly ignorant 181 2, 10 | were designed to point out, as we say bos when we mean 182 2, 10 | signify something else, as we say bos, and understand 183 2, 10 | preacher of the gospel, as Scripture signifies, according 184 2, 11 | untranslated in the books, as for example, Amen, Hallelujah, 185 2, 11 | authority that attaches to it, as for example, Amen and Hallelujah. 186 2, 11 | mark and to ask about, but, as has been said, on account 187 2, 12 | spiritually born of the same seed as ourselves, namely, the Word. 188 2, 12 | interpreters to differ so widely as not to touch at some point. 189 2, 12 | point. Accordingly here, as understanding consists in 190 2, 12 | abiding, but faith feeds us as babes, upon milk, in the 191 2, 12 | by faith, not by sight); as, moreover, unless we walk 192 2, 12 | the sense of the writer. As for example, some texts 193 2, 12 | error. Now translations such as this are not obscure, but 194 2, 13 | to follow the sense quite as much as the words. For not 195 2, 13 | the sense quite as much as the words. For not only 196 2, 13 | kind, just in proportion as they are weak; and they 197 2, 13 | weak just in proportion as they wish to seem learned, 198 2, 13 | treat with indifference, as not interfering with a right 199 2, 13 | but it is ambiguous too, as if the meaning might be, 200 2, 13 | whether "hominibus" is put as the plural of the dative 201 2, 13 | plural of the dative or as the plural of the ablative, 202 2, 14 | unknown signs, of which, as far as the words are concerned, 203 2, 14 | signs, of which, as far as the words are concerned, 204 2, 15 | Septuagint is preeminent as far as the Old Testament 205 2, 15 | Septuagint is preeminent as far as the Old Testament is concerned; 206 2, 15 | was but one voice. And if, as is reported, and as many 207 2, 15 | if, as is reported, and as many not unworthy of confidence 208 2, 15 | translated in such a way as the Holy Spirit, who worked 209 2, 15 | Gentiles. But nevertheless, as I said above, a comparison 210 2, 15 | often not without value as a help to the clearing up 211 2, 15 | of the Old Testament are, as I was about to say, to be 212 2, 15 | said to have translated as with one voice. As to the 213 2, 15 | translated as with one voice. As to the books of the New 214 2, 16 | figurative expressions obscure, as when we do not know the 215 2, 16 | that we should be wise as serpents; that is to say, 216 2, 16 | Christian faith should, as it were, be destroyed in 217 2, 16 | to put off the old man, as the apostle says, that we 218 2, 16 | in at the strait gate!" As, then, knowledge of the 219 2, 16 | by our Lord Himself, who, as if receiving the witness 220 2, 16 | the more to be considered as of sacred significance, 221 2, 16 | to the number ten itself as interpreted above. And the 222 2, 17 | represent the nine Muses as daughters of Jupiter and 223 2, 17 | the Muses, to be placed as an offering in the temple 224 2, 17 | either produced by the voice, as in the case of those who 225 2, 17 | instrument; or by blowing, as in the case of trumpets 226 2, 17 | flutes; or by striking, as in the case of harps and 227 2, 18 | But whether the fact is as Varro has related, or is 228 2, 18 | knew God, glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; 229 2, 19 | they have noted, either as transacted in the past or 230 2, 19 | transacted in the past or as instituted by God. The former 231 2, 20 | superstitious, pertaining as they do either to the worship 232 2, 20 | created or of some part of it as God, or to consultations 233 2, 20 | devils, such, for example, as are employed in the magical 234 2, 20 | accustomed not so much to teach as to celebrate. And to this 235 2, 20 | offensive name of physica, so as to appear not to be engaged 236 2, 20 | the kicking of a stone, as if it were a divider of 237 2, 20 | men are so superstitious as to venture upon striking 238 2, 21 | find it out, yet in so far as they attempt thence to predict 239 2, 21 | names they now bear. But as the men were dead whose 240 2, 22 | other a most unfortunate. As, for example, we are told 241 2, 22 | are now so widely spread as to be in the mouth of all 242 2, 22 | referred to the same class as if they were leagues and 243 2, 23 | be mocked and deceived, as the just reward of their 244 2, 23 | known, and turn out just as they are foretold; and in 245 2, 23 | sacrilegious observances as those by which his ghost 246 2, 23 | avoided by the Christian as the covenants of a false 247 2, 23 | treacherous friendship. Not as if the idol were anything," 248 2, 23 | are not appointed by God as the public means of promoting 249 2, 23 | door against our return. As, then, from the stars which 250 2, 23 | unusual in the occurrence, as when a mule brings forth 251 2, 23 | committed them to writing, as if they had drawn them by 252 2, 24 | are of force just so far as has been arranged with the 253 2, 24 | understanding in the mind which is, as it were, the common language, 254 2, 24 | person the same sort of omens as they see his own conjectures 255 2, 24 | agreement and prearrangement as to its signification; and 256 2, 24 | another to a Latin. Now, just as all these signs affect the 257 2, 24 | arrangements are different; and as, further, men did not agree 258 2, 24 | did not agree upon them as signs because they were 259 2, 25 | superstitious, that is, such as are not set up in association 260 2, 25 | signs, that the signs may as far as possible be like 261 2, 25 | that the signs may as far as possible be like the things 262 2, 25 | kind, which are intended as representations of things, 263 2, 25 | artists, but every one, as soon as he sees the likenesses 264 2, 25 | but every one, as soon as he sees the likenesses recognizes 265 2, 25 | inconvenience; and the arrangements as to weights and measures, 266 2, 26 | objects. And of these, such as have relation to fellowship 267 2, 26 | fellowship with devils must, as has been said, be utterly 268 2, 26 | intercourse of men, are, so far as they are not matters of 269 2, 26 | and the various languages as far as is required a matter 270 2, 26 | various languages as far as is required a matter I have 271 2, 26 | occupy our minds so far as not to stand in the way 272 2, 27 | have handed down to us, not as arrangements of their own, 273 2, 27 | arrangements of their own, but as the resell of investigation 274 2, 28 | without the pale of the Church as a matter of childish instruction. 275 2, 28 | the temple (which He took as a symbol of His body) was 276 2, 28 | years in building; so that, as this cannot be referred 277 2, 28 | As to the utility of history, 278 2, 28 | into our literature, so as to be able to teach and 279 2, 28 | God sprang up, and of whom as concerning the flesh our 280 2, 28 | undone are to be reckoned as belonging to the course 281 2, 29 | conformably to certain signs as nostrums or the instruments 282 2, 29 | I have already set aside as distinct from the lawful 283 2, 29 | mentioned in Scripture. And as the course of the moon, 284 2, 29 | a hindrance rather; and as it is closely related to 285 2, 29 | any information from them as to our own acts and fates, 286 2, 29 | the genethliaci, but only as to the motions of the heavenly 287 2, 29 | bodies themselves. For, as the man who computes the 288 2, 29 | all this knowledge, so far as regards its utility. ~ 289 2, 30 | Further, as to the remaining arts, whether 290 2, 30 | workman is over, remains as a result of his work, as, 291 2, 30 | as a result of his work, as, for example, a house, a 292 2, 30 | assist God in His operations, as medicine, and agriculture, 293 2, 30 | sole result is an action, as dancing, and racing, and 294 2, 31 | an imitation of the true, as to deceive not only dull 295 2, 31 | ensnaring arguments, Scripture, as I judge, expresses detestation 296 2, 31 | then, being repudiated as false, it follows that since 297 2, 31 | resurrection of the dead. As, then, valid conclusions 298 2, 32 | its origin with God. For as the man who narrates the 299 2, 32 | himself create that order; and as he who describes the situations 300 2, 32 | arrangements of man; and as he who points out the stars 301 2, 33 | inference in some such way as the following. Let us suppose 302 2, 33 | one is arguing. And thus, as I said above, a false inference 303 2, 33 | easy to understand that as the inferences may be valid 304 2, 33 | For it is not true that, as when the consequent is proved 305 2, 34 | must consider propositions as they stand by themselves, 306 2, 34 | inference, plume themselves as if this involved also the 307 2, 35 | state of things which is not as we declare it to be; and 308 2, 36 | men of what is false; but as they can be used to enforce 309 2, 36 | used to enforce the truth as well, it is not the faculty 310 2, 36 | themselves true just in so far as they are effective in producing 311 2, 37 | ascertaining the meaning as for setting forth the meaning 312 2, 37 | of such rules. It is just as if a man wishing to give 313 2, 37 | less about such directions, as they cannot prove them by 314 2, 37 | more pleasure from them as exhibitions of truth, than 315 2, 38 | considered in themselves, or as applied to the laws of figures, 316 2, 38 | a value on these things as to be inclined to boast 317 2, 39 | of the Church of Christ, as if these could secure for 318 2, 39 | such institutions of men as are unnecessary and luxurious. 319 2, 39 | those which, pertaining as they do to the senses, are 320 2, 39 | interpreting separately such as were left in Scripture without 321 2, 39 | have been done already (as I have found that many things 322 2, 40 | unlawful possession of it. For, as the Egyptians had not only 323 2, 40 | human institutions such as are adapted to that intercourse 324 2, 40 | garments to the people of God as they were going out of Egypt, 325 2, 40 | interpretation that may be as good, or better. ~ 326 2, 42 | But just as poor as the store of gold 327 2, 42 | But just as poor as the store of gold and silver 328 3, 1 | become meek through piety, so as to have no love of strife; 329 3, 1 | knowledge of languages, so as not to be stopped by unknown 330 3, 1 | certain necessary objects, so as not to be ignorant of the 331 3, 1 | ambiguous signs, I so far as I can give him instruction ( 332 3, 1 | I am going to point out as childish), but yet, as I 333 3, 1 | out as childish), but yet, as I was going to say, so far 334 3, 1 | was going to say, so far as I can give instruction, 335 3, 2 | with God,and God was), so as to make the next sentence 336 3, 2 | to be with Christ]. And, as if he were asked why he 337 3, 2 | that suggest themselves. As is the case in that passage 338 3, 2 | filthiness of the flesh], so as to make the next sentence, " 339 3, 3 | pronounced in such a way as to make what follows an 340 3, 3 | Christ Jesus who died." But as it would be the height of 341 3, 3 | pronounced in such a way as to make the first part a 342 3, 3 | what follows will be put as an interrogative: "Shall 343 3, 3 | what follows were given as the answer to this question: " 344 3, 3 | should take the word "os" as short or long. If he make 345 3, 3 | Now difficulties such as this are cleared up by looking 346 3, 3 | belonging to the same sentence. As, for example, that saying 347 3, 3 | tell you before [praedico], as I have also told you in 348 3, 3 | vobis]", and had not added, "as I have also told you in 349 3, 3 | pronounced long or short. But as it is, it is clear that 350 3, 4 | the case of proper words, as far at least as Holy Scripture 351 3, 4 | proper words, as far at least as Holy Scripture is concerned, 352 3, 5 | said figuratively is taken as if it were said literally, 353 3, 5 | letter takes figurative words as if they were proper, and 354 3, 6 | apostle describes this bondage as being like to that of boys 355 3, 6 | their leaders brought it as a charge against Him that 356 3, 6 | clinging to these signs as it they were realities, 357 3, 6 | themselves wholly to God as a new temple, of which the 358 3, 7 | considered a god, but only as representing the wide ocean, 359 3, 7 | spring out of fountains? As it is described by a poet 360 3, 7 | statue you like to take is as much god to me as the wide 361 3, 7 | take is as much god to me as the wide ocean. I grant, 362 3, 7 | worshipped by the heathen either as gods, or as signs and representations 363 3, 7 | heathen either as gods, or as signs and representations 364 3, 8 | frequently and justly speaks of as fornication, to the worship 365 3, 9 | observance; such, for example, as the Sacrament of baptism, 366 3, 9 | and blood of the Lord. And as soon as any one looks upon 367 3, 9 | of the Lord. And as soon as any one looks upon these 368 3, 9 | spiritual freedom. Now, as to follow the letter, and 369 3, 10 | metaphorical form of speech as if it were literal, we must 370 3, 10 | a literal form of speech as if it were figurative. In 371 3, 10 | And the way is certainly as follows: Whatever there 372 3, 10 | doctrine, you may set down as figurative. Purity of life 373 3, 10 | his own conscience, so far as he perceives that he has 374 3, 10 | But as men are prone to estimate 375 3, 10 | possess. Now in proportion as the dominion of lust is 376 3, 11 | some secondary reference, as if it were spoken figuratively. 377 3, 11 | words are used figuratively, as for example, "the wrath 378 3, 11 | nor placed in such a way as to obscure the sense, and 379 3, 12 | holiness is put before us as an example, are wholly figurative, 380 3, 12 | contain is to be picked out as food for the nourishment 381 3, 12 | other hand, uses them so as to transgress the bounds 382 3, 12 | sense, and to interpret as bearing ultimately upon 383 3, 12 | neighbour, or both. For as it was disgraceful among 384 3, 13 | necessity, or undertake as a matter of duty, to spend 385 3, 13 | benevolent end, either directly, as is our duty, or figuratively, 386 3, 13 | our duty, or figuratively, as is allowable to prophets. ~ 387 3, 14 | authority, they look upon them as sins, and do not consider 388 3, 14 | some who were half asleep (as I may say) that is, who 389 3, 14 | there was no such thing as absolute right, but that 390 3, 14 | that there is no such thing as right at all. Such men did 391 3, 15 | expressions, a rule such as the following will be observed, 392 3, 16 | interpret the coals of fire as the burning groans of penitence 393 3, 17 | understanding the Scriptures will be as follows, to recognize that 394 3, 17 | upon the state of health as a whole, but also upon the 395 3, 18 | transferred to the present time as a habit of life. For no 396 3, 18 | whom the apostle permitted as a matter of indulgence to 397 3, 18 | numerous wives, yet just as a wise man uses food and 398 3, 18 | abuse and intemperance, as is proved by Tobit's prayer 399 3, 20 | apostles used all these things, as occasion served, and were 400 3, 20 | were not in bondage to lust as they are who refuse to believe 401 3, 21 | like a guest, but reigned as a king. And about him Scripture 402 3, 22 | literally only, but figuratively as well, nevertheless even 403 3, 22 | many things which were done as duties at that time, cannot 404 3, 23 | righteousness, to despise others as sinners, when he sees in 405 3, 25 | But as there are many ways in which 406 3, 25 | leaven both in a bad sense, as when He said, "Beware of 407 3, 25 | I and in a good sense, as when He said, "The kingdom 408 3, 25 | sense, at another in a bad, as in the case of the leaven 409 3, 25 | Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh 410 3, 25 | in a good sense, "Be wise as serpents;" and again, in 411 3, 25 | instances ought to be used as examples. There are passages, 412 3, 25 | they ought to be taken, as for example, "In the hand 413 3, 25 | significations: water denotes people, as we read in the Apocalypse, 414 3, 25 | and also the Holy Spirit, as for example, "Out of his 415 3, 26 | crowned us with Thy favour as with a shield." And yet 416 3, 26 | not so to understand it, as that wherever we meet with 417 3, 26 | any kind, we must take it as signifying nothing but the 418 3, 27 | free from blame so long as he is supported by the testimony 419 3, 29 | all), but the very names as well: for instance, allegory, 420 3, 29 | which are said to be learnt as a matter of liberal education 421 3, 29 | opposite of what they say, as for example, those called 422 3, 29 | meaning we desire to convey; as when we say to a man who 423 3, 29 | their etymological sense, as a grove is called lucus 424 3, 29 | by a law of contraries, as when we ask in a place for 425 3, 29 | opposite of what we say, as in the expression, "Beware 426 3, 30 | seven rules, which are, as it were, keys to open the 427 3, 30 | his body. Now these rules, as expounded by their author, 428 3, 30 | there was no need for them, as there was no difficulty 429 3, 30 | to which his rules apply. As, for example, he inquires 430 3, 30 | obscurities of such a kind as require none of these seven 431 3, 30 | them that it would appear as if, when they were thoroughly 432 3, 30 | consider none so necessary as to write a little book of 433 3, 30 | little book of rules, and, as it were, to make keys for, 434 3, 30 | system of rules be received as I communicate it, without 435 3, 30 | if he follow these rules as pathways of light, be preserved 436 3, 30 | into which the author falls as a man, but chiefly on account 437 3, 30 | heresies which he advances as a Donatist. And now I shall 438 3, 31 | it is this, that, knowing as we do that the head and 439 3, 31 | single person is represented as saying, "He has decked me 440 3, 31 | saying, "He has decked me as a bridegroom with ornaments, 441 3, 31 | ornaments, and adorned me as a bride with jewels;" and 442 3, 32 | speaking of the same persons as before, just as if both 443 3, 32 | persons as before, just as if both sets constituted 444 3, 32 | I am black, but comely, as the tents of Cedar, as the 445 3, 32 | as the tents of Cedar, as the curtains of Solomon." 446 3, 32 | not said, I *was* black as the tents of Cedar, but 447 3, 32 | Cedar, but am *now* comely as the curtains of Solomon. 448 3, 32 | different from the former; but as the two sets are for the 449 3, 32 | united in one body, He speaks as if there were no change 450 3, 33 | designated in other terms as relating to the spirit and 451 3, 33 | works were given us by God as the reward of faith, but 452 3, 34 | calls species is a part: as, for example, every single 453 3, 34 | cities of the Gentiles, such as Tyre or Babylon, are things 454 3, 34 | which this is a part; or, as our author terms it, to 455 3, 34 | often said of such a kind as evidently apply to it also, 456 3, 34 | their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed 457 3, 34 | too, may be understood as applying to the same peep] 458 3, 34 | the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet 459 3, 34 | washing of regeneration which, as we see, is now imparted 460 3, 34 | prophet intended to point out as distinguished from the stony 461 3, 34 | apprehension of Scripture, as if we were enemies, but 462 3, 34 | but that he deals with us as a physician, giving us a 463 3, 34 | says shortly afterwards, as if repeating himself, "And 464 3, 34 | fathers," not literally, as if they referred to Israel 465 3, 34 | the flesh but spiritually, as referring to the spiritual 466 3, 34 | promise and purpose, the same as if it were already given; 467 3, 34 | were already given; just as the apostle, writing to 468 3, 34 | He speaks of the grace as given at a time when those 469 3, 34 | because he looks upon that as having been already done 470 3, 34 | he himself speaks of it as now made manifest. It is 471 3, 34 | because it is the same as if it were itself given, 472 3, 35 | the whole for the part. As, for example, in reference 473 3, 35 | so that His face shone as the sun, and His raiment 474 3, 35 | and His raiment was white as snow, one evangelist says 475 3, 35 | he showed its fulfilment as two whole days; while the 476 3, 35 | previous night, and count it as a whole day, and to the 477 3, 35 | more highly favours, such as seven, or ten, or twelve, 478 3, 35 | put for time universal; as, for example, "Seven times 479 3, 35 | Thee," means just the same as "His praise shall continually 480 3, 35 | when multiplied by ten, as seventy and seven hundred ( 481 3, 35 | multiplied into themselves, as ten into ten gives one hundred, 482 3, 36 | man was put in the garden, as now appears from the order 483 3, 36 | other things were done, as the previous statement might 484 3, 36 | being there laid upon them as the judgment of God upon 485 3, 36 | still more obscure form; as, for example, our Lord says 486 3, 36 | watchful and intelligent so as to understand the recapitulation, 487 3, 37 | of everlasting fire, just as Christ is the head of the 488 3, 37 | and glory. Accordingly, as the first rule, which is 489 3, 37 | evident in regard to himself as in regard to his body; and 490 3, 37 | more, from some less, just as men have got more or less 491 3, 37 | the gifts of intellect, or as they have access to more 492 3, 37 | fewer external helps. And, as in the case of proper words 493 3, 37 | are to be understood just as they are expressed, so in 494 3, 37 | just finished speaking of as much as I thought enough, 495 3, 37 | finished speaking of as much as I thought enough, students 496 3, 37 | But about signs, so far as relates to words, I have 497 3, 37 | the following book, so far as God has given me light, 498 4, arg | authors of the Holy Scriptures as the best models of eloquence, 499 4, arg | especial care by the teacher, as it is the main requisite 500 4, 1 | This work not intended as a treatise on rhetoric~
