In this first book he treats of 9 1, 1 | me with many thoughts on this subject, I do not fear but 10 1, 1 | with a view to undertaking this work will, as soon as I 11 1, 1 | by His grace, so that, in this very work of distribution 12 1, 2 | sign. And so, in regard to this distinction between things 13 1, 4 | picture of our condition in this life of mortality. We have 14 1, 4 | return to our Father's home, this world must be used, not 15 1, 5 | it is better to speak in this way: The Trinity, one God, 16 1, 6 | desired to say. How do I know this, except from the fact that 17 1, 6 | unspeakable," because to say even this is to speak of Him. Thus 18 1, 6 | called unspeakable. And this opposition of words is rather 19 1, 6 | rejoice in His praise. For on this principle it is that He 20 1, 8 | that of cattle; and above this, again, they place intelligent 21 1, 8 | And, perceiving that even this is subject to change, they 22 1, 8 | men never caught sight of this wisdom, they could never 23 1, 8 | that is subject to change. This will be evident, if we consider 24 1, 9 | who sees, but shrinks from this truth, is weak in his mental 25 1, 10 | perceived. And let us look upon this purification as a kind of 26 1, 11 | But of this we should have been wholly 27 1, 12 | grown into the likeness of this world, and are therefore 28 1, 13 | what way did He come but this, "The Word was made flesh, 29 1, 14 | is the way to health, so this remedy took up sinners to 30 1, 15 | that for our comfort in this earthly journey He has given 31 1, 15 | that in the adversities of this life we may retain our confidence 32 1, 16 | has transplanted it from this world to the eternal world, 33 1, 19 | is impossible), but that this corruptible shall put on 34 1, 19 | put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality. 35 1, 20 | whose soul does not die to this world and begin here to 36 1, 22 | too for God's sake. For this is the law of love that 37 1, 22 | and soul, and mind. For in this way, loving his neighbour 38 1, 23 | that is, its fellow-men, this is a reach of arrogance 39 1, 24 | then, hates himself. On this point, indeed, no question 40 1, 24 | abstinence and toil, those who do this in the right spirit do it 41 1, 24 | on the other hand, who do this in a perverse spirit, make 42 1, 24 | a natural enemy. And in this matter they are led astray 43 1, 24 | the one to the other." For this is said of the carnal habit 44 1, 24 | to all eternity; even in this life we must make it an 45 1, 24 | against the soul. And until this shall take place, "the flesh 46 1, 24 | would overbalance the loss. This and other indications of 47 1, 25 | point so very plain, but this is just what the error of 48 1, 29 | can to remove it. Now, if this be so, what does it become 49 1, 30 | There arises further in this connection a question about 50 1, 30 | the more we enjoy Him in this life as through a glass 51 1, 30 | nobody was neighbour to this man except him who took 52 1, 30 | question admitted the truth of this when he was himself interrogated 53 1, 30 | teaches when he says: "For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, 54 1, 30 | briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt 55 1, 30 | not embrace every man in this precept, is compelled to 56 1, 30 | nobody but a fool would say this, it is clear that every 57 1, 30 | of Holy Scripture.

And this we must never do except 63 1, 34 | further need of it; yet by this way all must commence their 64 1, 35 | discussion about things, this is the sum: that we should 65 1, 35 | of God that we might know this truth and be able to act 66 1, 36 | does not tend to build up this twofold love of God and 67 1, 37 | he cannot harmonize with this meaning.

And so let this be the end of the present 73 2, 1 | subject of signs, I lay down this direction, not to attend 74 2, 1 | an animal whose footprint this is has passed by; and when 75 2, 1 | animal passing by belongs to this class of signs. And the 76 2, 1 | intention of making it known. This class of signs however, 77 2, 1 | present. But as it comes under this division of the subject, 78 2, 2 | to consider and discuss this class of signs so far as 79 2, 2 | the matter in hand. And this part of the subject I exclude 80 2, 2 | exclude from the scope of this work as not necessary to 81 2, 3 | the man to whom we wish by this sign to impart our desire. 82 2, 4 | heaven was an indication of this arrogance of spirit; and 83 2, 6 | I do not doubt that all this was divinely arranged for 84 2, 6 | say, that if a man says this, he does not please his 85 2, 6 | language, without the help of this figure? And yet, I don't 86 2, 7 | desire and what to avoid. Now this fear will of necessity excite 87 2, 7 | undertaken to treat. For in this every earnest student of 88 2, 7 | entangled in the love of this world i.e., of temporal 89 2, 7 | boastful, but sorrowful. And in this frame of mind he implores 90 2, 7 | after righteousness. For in this frame of mind he extricates 91 2, 7 | power, he has gazed upon this object shining from afar, 92 2, 7 | it has contracted. And at this stage he exercises himself 93 2, 7 | as far as possible die to this world. For men see Him just 94 2, 7 | just so far as they die to this world; and so far as they 95 2, 7 | to wander as strangers in this world, even though our conversation 96 2, 7 | conversation be in heaven. And at this stage, too, a man so purges 97 2, 7 | the annoyances which beset this life. Such a son ascends 98 2, 8 | greater authority (though this is not a very likely thing 99 2, 8 | Scripture on which we say this judgment is to be exercised, 100 2, 9 | of God. And in pursuing this search the first rule to 101 2, 9 | the previous book. After this, when we have made ourselves 102 2, 9 | doubtful passages. And in this matter memory counts for 103 2, 10 | Latin tongue call it by this name. Signs are figurative 104 2, 11 | of another language. And this happens chiefly in the case 105 2, 11 | above are said to be of this kind, Racha expressing the 106 2, 12 | And this circumstance would assist 107 2, 12 | Now translations such as this are not obscure, but false; 108 2, 12 | but to correct texts of this sort. For the same reason 109 2, 12 | translated the word "calves;" and this error has crept into so 110 2, 12 | in the earth by roots. In this passage, indeed, the rest 111 2, 12 | the context also justifies this translation. ~ 112 2, 13 | offended in a matter of this kind, just in proportion 113 2, 13 | more disposed to think that this is simply the idiom of another 114 2, 13 | learned man would prefer that this should be corrected, and 115 2, 13 | the singers. Mistakes of this kind, then, if a man do 116 2, 13 | any one should retain in this passage the Greek idiom, 117 2, 14 | found in Latin authors. In this matter, too, the great number 118 2, 15 | comparison with an authority like this, not to speak of preferring 119 2, 16 | explaining the figure involved in this action cannot be got over. 120 2, 16 | passage of time we are taught this very lesson of despising 121 2, 16 | which it is made up. In this number ten, therefore, when 122 2, 16 | fast for forty days. Of this we are admonished by the 123 2, 16 | of the Pentecost, and how this number taken thrice on account 124 2, 16 | shuts out the reader from this instruction. ~ 125 2, 19 | But to explain more fully this whole topic (for it is one 126 2, 20 | as to celebrate. And to this class belong, but with a 127 2, 20 | haruspices and augurs. In this class we must place also 128 2, 20 | haste for a real surgeon. To this class, too, belong the following 129 2, 21 | Nor can we exclude from this kind of superstition those 130 2, 21 | goes to an astrologer of this kind, he gives money that 131 2, 21 | those who first fell into this error, and handed it on 132 2, 21 | honour on those men. And this is not to be wondered at, 133 2, 21 | and honour of Caesar. And this would, perhaps, have been 134 2, 21 | Venus had given her name to this star before him, and could 135 2, 21 | Augustus Caesar; and from this instance any one who cares 136 2, 21 | observe the point at which this movement has arrived, by 137 2, 22 | acquaintance with matters of this kind (which, indeed, are 138 2, 22 | fit to be unlearnt again), this superstition is refuted 139 2, 22 | astrologer cannot discover this in the constellations, and 140 2, 23 | For in this way it comes to pass that 141 2, 23 | God is not silent about this species of fornication of 142 2, 23 | All arts of this sort, therefore, are either 143 2, 24 | knows both languages uses this letter in a different sense 144 2, 24 | man's observations. And this appears quite plainly in 145 2, 25 | And we may well believe this, because even now, if any 146 2, 25 | statues, and other works of this kind, which are intended 147 2, 25 | they are likenesses of. And this whole class are to be reckoned 148 2, 25 | This whole class of human arrangements, 149 2, 26 | have spoken of above. To this class also belong shorthand 150 2, 28 | in building; so that, as this cannot be referred to our 151 2, 29 | who are ignorant of it. To this species belongs all that 152 2, 29 | and other bodies. And of this species I have treated above, 153 2, 29 | above, and have shown that this kind of knowledge is serviceable 154 2, 29 | say: If you bruise down this herb and drink it, it will 155 2, 29 | another to say: If you hang this herb round your neck, it 156 2, 29 | thoroughly known to very few. And this knowledge, although in itself 157 2, 29 | what my views are about all this knowledge, so far as regards 158 2, 31 | has given his assent to this also, the first draws his 159 2, 31 | you are not a man." Now at this sort of ensnaring arguments, 160 2, 31 | preaching of those who declared this fact was not in vain, nor 161 2, 32 | it is so. And it is upon this rule that the reasoning 162 2, 32 | to overthrow. Next, from this antecedent, the assertion, 163 2, 32 | Christ is not risen." But this consequence is false, for 164 2, 32 | resurrection of the dead. Now all this is briefly expressed thus: 165 2, 32 | resurrection of the dead. This rule, then, that when the 166 2, 32 | pointed out by him. And this rule has reference to the 167 2, 33 | In this passage, however, where 168 2, 33 | animal, it has a voice. This being admitted, then, when 169 2, 33 | snail is not an animal. Now this conclusion is false, but 170 2, 33 | propounds the statement, "If this man is just, he is good," 171 2, 33 | just;" and when we admit this too, he draws the conclusion, " 172 2, 34 | plume themselves as if this involved also the truth 173 2, 35 | to be omitted that does. This is true, even though the 174 2, 35 | we declare it to be; and this definition is true, although 175 2, 37 | This art, however, when it is 176 2, 38 | dullest apprehension that this was not created by man, 177 2, 38 | man, I say, who acts in this way may seem to be learned, 178 2, 39 | sake of the necessities of this life we must not neglect 179 2, 39 | in regard to matters of this kind, making it unnecessary 180 2, 39 | advantage of his brethren. In this way he might arrange in 181 2, 39 | his account to writing. This might also be done in relation 182 2, 39 | to me it cannot, because this runs like a system of nerves 183 2, 40 | a better use, not doing this on their own authority, 184 2, 40 | which is indispensable in this life, we must take and turn 185 2, 40 | prefiguring what happens now. And this I say without prejudice 186 2, 41 | hyssop to mark them with. Now this is a meek and lowly herb, 187 2, 41 | fixed in the earth. And by this sign of the cross all Christian 188 2, 41 | sacraments. And purified by this Christian action, we shall 189 3, arg | unknown signs, goes on in this third book to treat of ambiguous 190 3, 2 | in principio apud Deum" (This word was in the beginning 191 3, 2 | that the Word was God. But this must be rejected by the 192 3, 2 | remain in the flesh. Now this ambiguity is resolved by 193 3, 2 | translators who have omitted this particle have preferred 194 3, 2 | betwixt two]; and after this point follows: "concupiscentiam 195 3, 2 | why he has a desire for this in preference to the other, 196 3, 3 | did not stand in the way, this passage, "Who shall lay 197 3, 3 | what follows an answer to this question, "God who justifieth," 198 3, 3 | height of madness to believe this, the passage will be pronounced 199 3, 3 | and an interrogative was this, that an inquiry admits 200 3, 3 | were given as the answer to this question: "That the Gentiles, 201 3, 3 | sound of syllables; and this of course has relation to 202 3, 3 | Now difficulties such as this are cleared up by looking 203 3, 3 | osteon" [bone]. And for this reason the vulgar idiom 204 3, 4 | habuimus fratres in vobis", But this is a rather dangerous liberty 205 3, 5 | of the apostle applies in this case too: "The letter killeth, 206 3, 6 | This bondage, however, in the 207 3, 6 | referred, still they had this conviction rooted in their 208 3, 6 | And the apostle describes this bondage as being like to 209 3, 6 | the Gentile churches did this, because men who had for 210 3, 7 | is the winding rivers." This husk shakes its rattling 211 3, 7 | used with a reference to this explanation of it, unless 212 3, 9 | carnality is to be overcome. To this class of spiritual persons 213 3, 10 | Scripture asserts contrary to this must be figurative. Now 214 3, 11 | also of the Gentile." But this is addressed to those who, 215 3, 11 | over whom it had held sway, this plain expression is used: " 216 3, 11 | to Jeremiah, "See, I have this day set thee over the nations, 217 3, 12 | works; and the man who wins this, while following in the 218 3, 12 | are. For in all matters of this kind it is not the nature 219 3, 12 | In regard to matters of this sort, whatever the holy 220 3, 12 | lust. And everything of this nature that is there narrated 221 3, 13 | matter of duty, to spend this life, is to be turned by 222 3, 14 | times. And, distracted by this endless variety of customs, 223 3, 14 | of national customs. And this precept, when it is referred 224 3, 15 | once gives a meaning of this kind, the expression is 225 3, 16 | ye have no life in you." This seems to enjoin a crime 226 3, 16 | thirst, give him drink;" and this is beyond doubt a command 227 3, 16 | sinner." The latter clause of this sentence seems to forbid 228 3, 18 | life. For no one will do this except lust has dominion 229 3, 18 | matters are recorded with this useful design, that mere 230 3, 18 | knowest that I take not this my sister for lust, but 231 3, 21 | King David had suffered this injury at the hands of his 232 3, 21 | moved him. For it was on this account he had given orders 233 3, 21 | and when he was baffled in this design, he mourned over 234 3, 21 | been hurried. For prior to this, in the case of another 235 3, 21 | wives appears chiefly in this, that when this same king, 236 3, 21 | chiefly in this, that when this same king, carried away 237 3, 21 | And when he had been shown this, and God's punishment had 238 3, 21 | deep penitence. But yet in this parable it was the adultery 239 3, 21 | only a passing guest. On this account the unlawful appetite 240 3, 21 | his son Solomon, however, this lust did not come and pass 241 3, 23 | put the literal fact to this use also, to teach him not 242 3, 23 | these men were recorded to this end, that men might everywhere 243 3, 25 | Now the rule in regard to this variation has two forms. 244 3, 25 | it is uncertain whether this denotes the wrath of God, 245 3, 26 | regard to spiritual armour of this kind to assign faith to 246 3, 27 | whether he succeeds in this endeavour, or whether he 247 3, 27 | author perhaps saw that this very meaning lay in the 248 3, 27 | these words, foresaw that this interpretation would occur 249 3, 28 | evidence of reason. But this is a dangerous practice. 250 3, 29 | understanding Scripture. But this is not the place to teach 251 3, 29 | may you flourish? " And this is the figure of speech 252 3, 29 | its name from fish? And this is the figure called catachresis. ~ 253 3, 29 | go over all the rest in this way; for the speech of the 254 3, 29 | they may not be used in this or that figurative sense 255 3, 29 | unacquainted with; and in this way many obscure passages 256 3, 30 | far from being embraced in this number of seven, that the 257 3, 30 | themselves. And throughout this long and full discussion, 258 3, 30 | whatever is made of the rules. This is enough for an example, 259 3, 30 | books. For he thus commences this very book: "Of all the things 260 3, 30 | to many invisible. And if this system of rules be received 261 3, 31 | and His body, and it is this, that, knowing as we do 262 3, 32 | the body of the Lord; but this indeed is not a suitable 263 3, 32 | in His Church. And hence this rule might be designated 264 3, 32 | Concerning the mixed Church. Now this rule requires the reader 265 3, 32 | sacraments. An example of this is that passage in the Song 266 3, 32 | be at present both; and this because the good fish and 267 3, 33 | of when writing a book on this subject. It may be also 268 3, 33 | named, of grace and the law. This, however, seems to me to 269 3, 33 | the want of clear views on this question that originated, 270 3, 33 | of Tichonius to clear up this point were good, but not 271 3, 33 | not come into contact with this heresy, which has arisen 272 3, 33 | attentive and anxious on this point, namely, that even 273 3, 33 | God, when he learns from this passage, and believes, that 274 3, 33 | testimonies besides which prove this. But I am not now treating 275 3, 33 | I am not now treating of this doctrine. I have, however, 276 3, 34 | fitly to the whole of which this is a part; or, as our author 277 3, 34 | it, to the genus of which this is a species. And hence 278 3, 34 | easy to understand that this applies to that house of 279 3, 34 | uncleannesses." Now that this is a prophecy of the New 280 3, 34 | an evident reference to this place where the prophet 281 3, 34 | This spiritual Israel, therefore, 282 3, 34 | therefore we ought to take this saying "And I will bring 283 3, 34 | we are to understand that this was given to the fathers 284 3, 35 | Scripture. And he says that this rule applies in two ways: 285 3, 35 | one evangelist says that this event occurred "after eight 286 3, 35 | days between these two. This figure of speech, which 287 3, 35 | to know. Now numbers of this sort are often put for time 288 3, 36 | if we do not understand this, from applying the rule 289 3, 36 | of four streams; and all this has reference to the arrangements 290 3, 36 | of the garden. And when this is finished, there is a 291 3, 36 | of events came after all this: "And the Lord God took 292 3, 36 | speech." Now the addition of this sentence, "And the whole 293 3, 36 | language in common; but this is evidently inconsistent 294 3, 36 | building of the tower, and of this punishment being there laid 295 3, 36 | arrogance; and it was after this that they were scattered 296 3, 36 | This recapitulation is found 297 3, 37 | and which to the body; so this last rule shows us that 298 3, 37 | until they depart from this life, or until the chaff 299 3, 37 | figurative diction; and this kind of diction, it seems 300 3, 37 | And when an expression of this sort occurs where it is 301 4, 1 | chap. 1. This work not intended as a treatise 302 4, 1 | This work of mine, which is entitled 303 4, 1 | have given three books to this one part of the subject, 304 4, 1 | first place, then, I wish by this preamble to put a stop to 305 4, 1 | to teach them either in this work or any other. ~ 306 4, 2 | such a fool as to think this wisdom? Since, then, the 307 4, 3 | the theories and rules on this subject (to which, when 308 4, 3 | any one who cannot learn this art quickly can never thoroughly 309 4, 3 | learn it at all. Whether this be true or not, why need 310 4, 3 | we inquire? For even if this art can occasionally be 311 4, 3 | though he does not aim at this, but is solely intent on 312 4, 3 | well, and, in order to do this, think of the rules of speaking 313 4, 3 | themselves to be the case in this respect? We know numbers 314 4, 4 | and in the performance of this task to conciliate the hostile, 315 4, 5 | he says must be true. And this opinion is held even by 316 4, 5 | forced by truth to confess this in the very books which 317 4, 5 | sons and the ministers of this higher wisdom! Now a man 318 4, 6 | evidently inspired of God. With this eloquence they spoke; no 319 4, 6 | been suitable for them; and this itself would be unsuitable 320 4, 6 | characters, and to guide us from this world of wickedness to the 321 4, 6 | peculiarly their own, they so use this eloquence of ours that it 322 4, 7 | which precede the period; this is the first clause, "knowing 323 4, 7 | himself though he ascribes this as folly to himself how 324 4, 7 | as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting. 325 4, 7 | as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting." 326 4, 7 | I am bold also." After this, certain separate sections 327 4, 7 | cold and nakedness." After this comes in a period of three 328 4, 7 | all the churches." And to this he adds two clauses in a 329 4, 7 | and I burn not?" In fine, this whole passage, as if panting 330 4, 7 | delightful it is when after this outburst he rests himself, 331 4, 7 | descanting on matters of this kind. It was necessary, 332 4, 7 | when brought to light. In this place, however, it is my 333 4, 7 | When, then, this rustic, or quondam rustic 334 4, 7 | to deliver a message like this, and to men such as these, 335 4, 7 | ears could wish changed in this speech? In the first place, 336 4, 7 | he had so expressed it, this would have had its beauty: 337 4, 7 | affliction of Joseph." Whether this be pronounced continuously 338 4, 7 | indeed, I do not know whether this figure of speech, by which 339 4, 7 | eloquence could be found in this passage which I have chosen 340 4, 10 | when dealing with speech of this kind, says that there is 341 4, 10 | And this must be insisted on as necessary 342 4, 10 | does not understand; and on this account the speaker ought 343 4, 10 | until some indication of this sort be given, the subject 344 4, 10 | shall understand. And when this point has been reached, 345 4, 10 | If it appear right to do this, it ought to be done so 346 4, 11 | what was obscure; yet if this be done without grace of 347 4, 12 | however, they do not yet know this, they must of course be 348 4, 12 | strength of eloquence. Yet when this is needful, it ought to 349 4, 12 | teaches or gives pleasure. For this reason also to persuade 350 4, 12 | clearly pointed out (and this is the true function of 351 4, 12 | the speech which shows this to be true gives pleasure. ~ 352 4, 13 | of pleasing. And yet even this is not enough for those 353 4, 14 | rock in pieces." For to this God Himself has by the same 354 4, 14 | listened to with pleasure. But this, of course, cannot be, unless 355 4, 14 | truths. And something of this sort occurs in a letter 356 4, 14 | inserted designedly with this view, that posterity might 357 4, 14 | one place, "Let us seek this abode: the neighbouring 358 4, 14 | But people who are fond of this style are apt to think that 359 4, 14 | them to avoid it. Wherefore this holy man shows both that 360 4, 15 | doubt that if he succeed in this object, and so far as he 361 4, 17 | compliance. And when he does this with elegance and propriety, 362 4, 18 | more things that pertain to this life? If, then, ye have 363 4, 18 | of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge 364 4, 18 | God forbid. No; but all this is done for the sake of 365 4, 18 | that when a preacher takes this saying as his text, he should 366 4, 18 | when we happen to speak on this subject to the people, and 367 4, 19 | to understand? Are we in this case to seek out ornaments 368 4, 19 | show how great a wickedness this is, and urge men to flee 369 4, 20 | bondage, which is Hagar. For this Hagar is Mount Sinai in 370 4, 20 | seed, which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, 371 4, 20 | he himself anticipates this objection and asks, "Wherefore 372 4, 20 | questions, but also, while doing this, to meet other questions 373 4, 20 | And almost the whole of this hortatory passage is in 374 4, 20 | And how gracefully all this is brought to a close in 375 4, 20 | order of the words. And how this sounds in the Greek language, 376 4, 20 | harmonious endings. Whether this be the fault of the translators, 377 4, 20 | I confess I do not know. This I know, however, that if 378 4, 20 | any one who is skilled in this species of harmony would 379 4, 20 | musical training from which this harmony we speak of is most 380 4, 20 | patience all the evils of this life. It is a great subject, 381 4, 20 | that the persecutions of this world should be overcome 382 4, 20 | help of God. And he treats this subject with both power 383 4, 21 | sacrament of the cup. In this book he resolves the question, 384 4, 21 | that in the book of Genesis this very circumstance in regard 385 4, 21 | only necessary to observe this point, that Noah, foreshadowing 386 4, 21 | order of Melchizedek.'"

Now this sign seems to indicate that 388 4, 21 | and that rock was Christ;' this, of course, referring not 389 4, 21 | and fire rose out of it, this was a sign that our Lord' 390 4, 21 | heavenly." Virginity bears this image, integrity bears it, 391 4, 21 | the first, in dealing with this topic, says: "Suppose a 392 4, 21 | sufficiently clear, I think, that this eloquence calls passionately 393 4, 22 | the sea. It follows from this, that the majestic style, 394 4, 23 | distinction is required, and this naturally demands the subdued 395 4, 23 | subdued style. And accordingly this style must be used in alternation 396 4, 24 | the majestic style; for this effect is often produced 397 4, 24 | the event proved it, that this horrible and barbarous custom ( 398 4, 24 | To break down hardness of this sort, speech needs to be 399 4, 25 | From all this we may conclude, that the 400 4, 25 | attaining such an object as this last? They may desire it 401 4, 25 | viz., the effecting by this style of eloquence what 402 4, 25 | For we may by the use of this style persuade men to cultivate 403 4, 26 | unassailable; especially when all this is accompanied by a natural, 404 4, 26 | the nature of the subject: this style, so used, frequently 405 4, 26 | hand, without perspicuity this style cannot give pleasure. 406 4, 26 | persuasiveness, are to be sought in this style also; beauty, of course, 407 4, 26 | the majestic style (and this is always necessary when 408 4, 26 | pleasure? Wherefore, in this style, too, when an obdurate 409 4, 27 | just quoted about men of this stamp, made this observation: " 410 4, 27 | men of this stamp, made this observation: "The scribes 411 4, 28 | let the words govern him. This is what the apostle says: " 412 4, 28 | subverting of the hearers." Now this does not mean that, when 413 4, 29 | however, he cannot do even this, let his life be such as 414 4, 29 | without deception. For in this way many become preachers 415 4, 29 | speak good things?" And from this it would appear that even 416 4, 29 | is not eloquent; and when this takes place, the former 417 4, 29 | when true believers render this service to true believers, 418 4, 31 | This book has extended to a greater
