There are other books which seem to 145 2, 8 | follow no regular order, and are connected neither with the 146 2, 8 | Kings and Chronicles. Next are the Prophets, in which there 147 2, 8 | the other Ecclesiasticus, are ascribed to Solomon from 148 2, 8 | son of Sirach. Still they are to be reckoned among the 149 2, 8 | authoritative.

Signs are either proper or figurative. 162 2, 10 | proper or figurative. They are called proper when they 163 2, 10 | called proper when they are used to point out the objects 164 2, 10 | call it by this name.

Some of them, again, are said to be untranslatable 168 2, 11 | other two I have mentioned are examples. For in some languages 169 2, 11 | in some languages there are words that cannot be translated 170 2, 11 | of interjections, which are words that express rather 171 2, 11 | And the two given above are said to be of this kind, 172 2, 11 | but the Latin translators are out of all number. For in 173 2, 12 | Christians, because they are spiritually born of the 174 2, 12 | to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save 175 2, 12 | texts read: "Their feet are sharp to shed blood;" for 176 2, 12 | translated: "Their feet are swift to shed blood." The 177 2, 12 | translations such as this are not obscure, but false; 178 2, 12 | understood that "moscheumata" are shoots of trees, and have 179 2, 12 | ground with their feet, and are not fixed in the earth by 180 2, 13 | from which the Scriptures are translated into Latin, or 181 2, 13 | original, not because these are sufficient, but because 182 2, 13 | but often whole phrases are translated, which could 183 2, 13 | of the passage, yet they are offensive to those who feel 184 2, 13 | the signs of those things are kept in their own purity. 185 2, 13 | And men are easily offended in a matter 186 2, 13 | just in proportion as they are weak; and they are weak 187 2, 13 | they are weak; and they are weak just in proportion 188 2, 14 | which, as far as the words are concerned, there are two 189 2, 14 | words are concerned, there are two kinds.

Examples of these are the earrings on the top 218 2, 20 | frivolous practices, that are to be observed if any part 219 2, 20 | jump, or if, when friends are walking arm-in-arm, a stone, 220 2, 20 | happens to run between men who are walking side by side.

As, for example, we are told that Esau and Jacob 234 2, 22 | Scriptures bear witness, which are now so widely spread as 235 2, 22 | the presumption of men, are to be referred to the same 236 2, 23 | who lust after evil things are, by a secret judgment of 237 2, 23 | their evil desires. For they are deluded and imposed on by 238 2, 23 | things in the past and future are made known, and turn out 239 2, 23 | and turn out just as they are foretold; and in the case 240 2, 23 | of this sort, therefore, are either nullities, or are 241 2, 23 | are either nullities, or are part of a guilty superstition, 242 2, 23 | between men and devils, and are to be utterly repudiated 243 2, 23 | instead of God, or which are connected with attention 244 2, 23 | other observances; for these are not appointed by God as 245 2, 23 | so also from things that are born, or in any other way 246 2, 24 | And all these omens are of force just so far as 247 2, 24 | common language, but they are all full of hurtful curiosity, 248 2, 24 | have meaning. And so they are made different for different 249 2, 24 | For those spirits which are bent upon deceiving, take 250 2, 24 | because these arrangements are different; and as, further, 251 2, 24 | but on the contrary they are now significant because 252 2, 24 | birds, because these omens are of no significance apart 253 2, 25 | human institutions which are not superstitious, there 254 2, 25 | not superstitious, there are some things superfluous 255 2, 25 | human institutions which are not superstitious, that 256 2, 25 | superstitious, that is, such as are not set up in association 257 2, 25 | For all arrangements that are in force among men, because 258 2, 25 | they should be in force, are human institutions; and 259 2, 25 | institutions; and of these, some are matters of superfluity and 260 2, 25 | in many ways, such signs are not always of the same significance 261 2, 25 | works of this kind, which are intended as representations 262 2, 25 | mistake, especially if they are executed by skilled artists, 263 2, 25 | recognizes the things they are likenesses of. And this 264 2, 25 | of.

All these are useful, and there is nothing 278 2, 27 | coming to the next point, we are not to reckon among human 279 2, 27 | the intellect.

For not 283 2, 28 | former institutions of men are described, the history itself 284 2, 28 | institutions; because things that are past and gone and cannot 285 2, 28 | gone and cannot be undone are to be reckoned as belonging 286 2, 29 | made known to those who are ignorant of it. To this 287 2, 29 | not that these objects are to be used conformably to 288 2, 29 | and invocations and marks are not used, it is frequently 289 2, 29 | Very few of these, however, are mentioned in Scripture. 290 2, 29 | rest of the heavenly bodies are thoroughly known to very 291 2, 29 | just the same way men who are skilled in such computations 292 2, 29 | skilled in such computations are accustomed to answer like 293 2, 29 | have stated what my views are about all this knowledge, 294 2, 31 | reasoning and that of number are the chief. The science of 295 2, 31 | an adversary. For there are many of what are called 296 2, 31 | For there are many of what are called sophisms, inferences 297 2, 31 | inferences in reasoning that are false, and yet so close 298 2, 31 | clever men too, when they are not on their guard. For 299 2, 31 | proposition, "What I am, you are not." The other assents, 300 2, 31 | his conclusion: "Then you are not a man." Now at this 301 2, 31 | There are also valid processes of 302 2, 31 | arguing; and these conclusions are sometimes drawn by a good 303 2, 31 | drew other inferences which are all utterly false; for Christ 304 2, 33 | its logical consequences are utterly untenable. And hence 305 2, 33 | valid where the opinions are false, so the inferences 306 2, 33 | unsound where the opinions are true. For example, suppose 307 2, 34 | when propositions that we are not sure about are joined 308 2, 34 | that we are not sure about are joined by a valid inference 309 2, 34 | inference to propositions that are true and certain, they themselves, 310 2, 34 | themselves, because they are ignorant of the laws of 311 2, 35 | to be defined or divided are not true.
