I He will give, then, to those 32 1, 1 | this work will, as soon as I begin to impart them to 33 1, 1 | of distribution in which I have engaged, so far from 34 1, 1 | incurring loss and poverty, I shall be made to rejoice 35 1, 2 | learnt by means of signs. I now use the word "thing" 36 1, 2 | hence may be understood what I call signs: those things, 37 1, 2 | between things and signs, I shall, when I speak of things, 38 1, 2 | and signs, I shall, when I speak of things, speak in 39 1, 2 | subject according to which I am to discuss things first 40 1, 6 | Have I spoken of God, or uttered 41 1, 6 | in any worthy way? Nay, I feel that I have done nothing 42 1, 6 | worthy way? Nay, I feel that I have done nothing more than 43 1, 6 | desire to speak; and if I have said anything, it is 44 1, 6 | anything, it is not what I desired to say. How do I 45 1, 6 | I desired to say. How do I know this, except from the 46 1, 6 | is unspeakable? But what I have said, if it had been 47 1, 9 | about which he asks, how I know it? is unchangeably 48 1, 30 | Psalmist says in his prayer, "I behaved myself as though 49 1, 31 | Psalmist says most plainly, "I said to the LORD, Thou art 50 1, 31 | neither enjoys nor uses us, I am at a loss to discover 51 1, 32 | fullest sense of the words, "I AM THAT I AM," and "Thou 52 1, 32 | of the words, "I AM THAT I AM," and "Thou shalt say 53 1, 32 | Thou shalt say to them, I AM has sent me unto you;" 54 1, 34 | eternal life.

In the next I shall discuss, as far as 61 2, 1 | As when I was writing about things, 62 2, 1 | was writing about things, I introduced the subject with 63 2, 1 | something else, so now, when I come in its turn to discuss 64 2, 1 | discuss the subject of signs, I lay down this direction, 65 2, 1 | division of the subject, I could not altogether pass 66 2, 2 | this part of the subject I exclude from the scope of 67 2, 3 | themselves to the ear are, as I have said, more numerous, 68 2, 3 | thoughts consist of words.

And I do not doubt that all this 72 2, 6 | difficulty. For why is it, I ask, that if any one says 73 2, 6 | their neighbour; how is it, I say, that if a man says 74 2, 6 | of this figure? And yet, I don't know why, I feel greater 75 2, 6 | And yet, I don't know why, I feel greater pleasure in 76 2, 6 | contemplating holy men, when I view them as the teeth of 77 2, 6 | greatest pleasure, too, that I recognize them under the 78 2, 6 | But why I view them with greater delight 79 2, 7 | step, knowledge, of which I have now undertaken to treat. 80 2, 7 | on these two commandments I touched in the previous 81 2, 7 | in the previous book when I was treating about things. 82 2, 8 | for it is about it that I have set myself to speak 83 2, 8 | likely thing to happen), I think that in such a case 84 2, 9 | rule to be observed is, as I said, to know these books, 85 2, 9 | hope and love, of which I have spoken in the previous 86 2, 11 | tongue, of whom are those I have undertaken to instruct, 87 2, 11 | of which the other two I have mentioned are examples. 88 2, 12 | occur to one's mind. Whence, I think, that expression of 89 2, 12 | he says, "If by any means I may provoke to emulation 90 2, 13 | dwell in. Num. 13:19) And I am more disposed to think 91 2, 14 | ambiguous signs, however, I shall speak afterwards. 92 2, 14 | shall speak afterwards. I am treating at present of 93 2, 15 | these men have expressed it, I think we must give way to 94 2, 15 | Gentiles. But nevertheless, as I said above, a comparison 95 2, 15 | the Old Testament are, as I was about to say, to be 96 2, 16 | Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean". ~ 97 2, 16 | mystical way.

To 104 2, 29 | bodies. And of this species I have treated above, and 105 2, 29 | for that kind of knowledge I have already set aside as 106 2, 29 | the heavenly bodies. And I have stated what my views 107 2, 30 | compel us, a matter on which I do not touch at present), 108 2, 31 | the proposition, "What I am, you are not." The other 109 2, 31 | the first speaker adds: "I am a man;" and when the 110 2, 31 | arguments, Scripture, as I judge, expresses detestation 111 2, 32 | rule that the reasoning I have quoted from the Apostle 112 2, 33 | is arguing. And thus, as I said above, a false inference 113 2, 38 | have their being; the man, I say, who acts in this way 114 2, 39 | Accordingly, I think that it is well to 115 2, 39 | intercourse with those around us. I think, however, there is 116 2, 39 | for their solution; what, I say, these men have done 117 2, 39 | of knowledge, the same, I think, might be done in 118 2, 39 | have been done already (as I have found that many things 119 2, 39 | have found that many things I had no notion of have been 120 2, 39 | sight by the envious. And I am not sure whether the 121 2, 39 | ambiguous passages, of which I shall speak hereafter, than 122 2, 39 | unknown signs, the topic I am now discussing. ~ 123 2, 40 | what happens now. And this I say without prejudice to 124 2, 41 | Scriptures, prepared in the way I have indicated, shall enter 125 2, 41 | and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take 126 2, 41 | you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: 127 2, 41 | the psalmist says, "and I shall be clean; wash me, 128 2, 41 | shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 129 2, 42 | Scripture. And about these I shall now, in a third book, 130 3, 1 | astray by ambiguous signs, I so far as I can give him 131 3, 1 | ambiguous signs, I so far as I can give him instruction ( 132 3, 1 | shall laugh at the methods I am going to point out as 133 3, 1 | as childish), but yet, as I was going to say, so far 134 3, 1 | going to say, so far as I can give instruction, let 135 3, 1 | metaphorical, classes which I have already described in 136 3, 2 | the Church, and of which I treated at sufficient length 137 3, 2 | at sufficient length when I was speaking in the first 138 3, 2 | the apostle says: "What I shall choose I wot not: 139 3, 2 | says: "What I shall choose I wot not: for I am in a strait 140 3, 2 | shall choose I wot not: for I am in a strait betwixt two, 141 3, 2 | compellor autem ex duobus" [I am in a strait betwixt two]; 142 3, 2 | compellor autem ex duobus" [what I shall choose I wot not: 143 3, 2 | duobus" [what I shall choose I wot not: for I am in a strait 144 3, 2 | shall choose I wot not: for I am in a strait betwixt two]; 145 3, 3 | all the directions that I have given about ambiguous 146 3, 3 | with doubt and hesitation, I do not see how a difference 147 3, 3 | speech of the educated. For I would rather have the barbarism, " 148 3, 3 | the apostle, "Of the which I tell you before [praedico], 149 3, 3 | you before [praedico], as I have also told you in time 150 3, 3 | only said, "Of the which I tell you before [quae praedico 151 3, 3 | and had not added, "as I have also told you in time 152 3, 4 | where the apostle says, "I protest by your rejoicing [ 153 3, 4 | per vestram gloriam] which I have in Christ Jesus our 154 3, 4 | in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily." For one translator 155 3, 5 | metaphorical words, about which I am next to speak, demand 156 3, 7 | of theirs, who says, if I recollect aright, "Thou, 157 3, 7 | knows the gospel knows what I mean. What profit is it 158 3, 7 | indeed the result be that I worship neither? For any 159 3, 7 | to me as the wide ocean. I grant, however, that they 160 3, 10 | I mean by charity that affection 161 3, 10 | subordination to God; by lust I mean that affection of the 162 3, 11 | addressed to Jeremiah, "See, I have this day set thee over 163 3, 11 | to be referred to the end I have spoken of. ~ 164 3, 14 | who were half asleep (as I may say) that is, who were 165 3, 14 | do ye even so to them," I cannot be altered by any 166 3, 18 | one wife with lust. And I look with greater approval 167 3, 18 | assuredly those men of whom I speak knew that wantonness 168 3, 18 | Lord. Thou knowest that I take not this my sister 169 3, 25 | leaven of the Pharisees," I and in a good sense, as 170 3, 25 | is used in a good sense, "I am the living bread which 171 3, 25 | other case. The examples I have adduced are indeed 172 3, 29 | Moreover, I would have learned men to 173 3, 29 | lest it might seem that I was teaching grammar. I 174 3, 29 | I was teaching grammar. I certainly advise, however, 175 3, 29 | elsewhere, although indeed I have already given that 176 3, 29 | second book namely, where I treated of the necessary 177 3, 30 | things that occur to me, I consider none so necessary 178 3, 30 | of rules be received as I communicate it, without 179 3, 30 | false expectations. And I have thought it right to 180 3, 30 | advances as a Donatist. And now I shall briefly indicate what 181 3, 32 | in the Song of Solomon, "I am black, but comely, as 182 3, 32 | Solomon." For it is not said, I *was* black as the tents 183 3, 32 | good part of the Church, "I will bring the blind by 184 3, 32 | way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths 185 3, 32 | that they have not known; I will make darkness light 186 3, 32 | straight: these things will I do unto them, and not forsake 187 3, 33 | letter, which is the name I made use of when writing 188 3, 33 | besides which prove this. But I am not now treating of this 189 3, 33 | treating of this doctrine. I have, however, dealt with 190 3, 34 | removed woman. Wherefore I poured my fury upon them 191 3, 34 | they had polluted it: and I scattered them among the 192 3, 34 | according to their doings, I judged them." Now it is 193 3, 34 | prophet begins to say, "And I will sanctify my great name, 194 3, 34 | heathen shall know that I am the Lord," the reader 195 3, 34 | he goes on to say: "And I shall be sanctified in you 196 3, 34 | you before their eyes. For I will take you from among 197 3, 34 | your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon 198 3, 34 | from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart 199 3, 34 | you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit 200 3, 34 | you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will 201 3, 34 | will I put within you; and I will take away the stony 202 3, 34 | heart out of your flesh and I will give you a heart of 203 3, 34 | you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within 204 3, 34 | shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and 205 3, 34 | shall be my people, and I will be your God. I will 206 3, 34 | and I will be your God. I will also save you from 207 3, 34 | A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit 208 3, 34 | you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will 209 3, 34 | will I put within you; and I will take away the stony 210 3, 34 | heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of 211 3, 34 | to take this saying "And I will bring you into your 212 3, 34 | shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers," not 213 3, 35 | Seven times in the day do I praise Thee," means just 214 3, 37 | case of proper words which I discussed above, and in 215 3, 37 | be understood, and which I have just finished speaking 216 3, 37 | finished speaking of as much as I thought enough, students 217 3, 37 | far as relates to words, I have now said enough. It 218 4, 1 | after a preface, in which I answered by anticipation 219 4, 1 | take exception to the work, I said, "There are two things 220 4, 1 | when it is ascertained. I shall treat first of the 221 4, 1 | the meaning." As, then, I have already said a great 222 4, 1 | one part of the subject, I shall only say a few things 223 4, 1 | In the first place, then, I wish by this preamble to 224 4, 1 | readers who may think that I am about to lay down rules 225 4, 1 | rules of rhetoric such as I have learnt, and taught 226 4, 1 | any such from me. Not that I think such rules of no use, 227 4, 3 | men of slower intellect, I do not think it of so much 228 4, 3 | rules themselves. Indeed, I think there are scarcely 229 4, 4 | And all the methods I have mentioned are constantly 230 4, 5 | and spirit, the work that I am speaking of ought to 231 4, 5 | knowledge of Scripture; I do not mean by reading them 232 4, 5 | service if he can do both), I would rather send him to 233 4, 6 | easily settled. For where I understand these writers, 234 4, 6 | can be more eloquent. And I venture to affirm that all 235 4, 6 | below them. Where, however, I do not understand these 236 4, 6 | eloquence is then less apparent, I have no doubt but that it 237 4, 6 | of the same kind as that I do understand. The very 238 4, 6 | I could, however, if I had 239 4, 6 | I could, however, if I had time, show those men 240 4, 6 | delight in their eloquence; I am more struck with admiration 241 4, 7 | unlearnedly learned (if I may use the expression) 242 4, 7 | art of elocution. As then I do not affirm that the apostle 243 4, 7 | the rules of eloquence, so I do not deny that his wisdom 244 4, 7 | when it comes after him. "I say again," he says, "Let 245 4, 7 | a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little. 246 4, 7 | myself a little. That which I speak, I speak it not after 247 4, 7 | little. That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, 248 4, 7 | many glory after the flesh, I will glory also. For ye 249 4, 7 | man smite you on the face. I speak as concerning reproach, 250 4, 7 | whereinsoever any is bold (I speak foolishly), I am bold 251 4, 7 | bold (I speak foolishly), I am bold also. Are they Hebrews? 252 4, 7 | Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so 253 4, 7 | Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? 254 4, 7 | the seed of Abraham? so am I. Are they ministers of Christ? ( 255 4, 7 | they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool), I am more: 256 4, 7 | Christ? (I speak as a fool), I am more: in labours more 257 4, 7 | Jews five times received I forty stripes save one, 258 4, 7 | stripes save one, thrice was I beaten with rods, once was 259 4, 7 | beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered 260 4, 7 | once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night 261 4, 7 | shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; in 262 4, 7 | churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, 263 4, 7 | weak? who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs 264 4, 7 | offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will 265 4, 7 | If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things 266 4, 7 | clauses and periods of which I spoke a short time ago, 267 4, 7 | For, from the place where I commenced to quote, the 268 4, 7 | though it may have more: "I say again, let no man think 269 4, 7 | a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little." 270 4, 7 | four members: "That which I speak, I speak it not after 271 4, 7 | members: "That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, 272 4, 7 | many glory after the flesh, I will glory also." And the 273 4, 7 | man smite you on the face. I speak as concerning reproach, 274 4, 7 | whereinsoever any is bold (I speak foolishly), I am bold 275 4, 7 | bold (I speak foolishly), I am bold also." After this, 276 4, 7 | Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so 277 4, 7 | Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? 278 4, 7 | the seed of Abraham? so am I." But a fourth section being 279 4, 7 | the ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool.) I am more." 280 4, 7 | Christ? (I speak as a fool.) I am more." Then the next 281 4, 7 | joined the second, "received I forty stripes save one." 282 4, 7 | are set down: "Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was 283 4, 7 | beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered 284 4, 7 | once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck." Next 285 4, 7 | clause: "a night and a day I have been in the deep." 286 4, 7 | inquiry: "Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, 287 4, 7 | weak? who is offended, and I burn not?" In fine, this 288 4, 7 | period of two members: "If I must needs glory, I will 289 4, 7 | If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things 290 4, 7 | concern mine infirmities." And I cannot sufficiently express 291 4, 7 | for evermore, knoweth that I lie not." And then he tells, 292 4, 7 | Holy Scripture. Suppose I had taken the further trouble, 293 4, 7 | in regard to the passages I have quoted from the apostle' 294 4, 7 | serious men would think I had gone too far, than that 295 4, 7 | the studious would think I had done enough? All these 296 4, 7 | them magniloquently. And I fear lest I too should smack 297 4, 7 | magniloquently. And I fear lest I too should smack of that 298 4, 7 | some one is thinking that I have selected the Apostle 299 4, 7 | For when he says, "Though I be rude in speech, yet not 300 4, 7 | truth. If he had said, "I am indeed rude in speech, 301 4, 7 | I see, then, that I must say 302 4, 7 | I see, then, that I must say something about 303 4, 7 | passage of such a kind that I shall not be compelled to 304 4, 7 | to commend the style. And I shall do so, quoting principally 305 4, 7 | prophesy to the people of God. I shall not, however, follow 306 4, 7 | their translation;) but I shall follow the translation 307 4, 7 | return he made. And, indeed, I do not know whether this 308 4, 7 | laid down in that art which I learnt and used to teach. 309 4, 7 | found in this passage which I have chosen as an example. 310 4, 8 | But although I take some examples of eloquence 311 4, 10 | conventicula eorum de sanguinibus" (I shall not assemble their 312 4, 10 | of it he is taught. But I am not now treating of the 313 4, 10 | mode of giving pleasure. I am speaking of the mode 314 4, 12 | to be feared and shunned. I need not go over all the 315 4, 14 | have it so. God forbid, I say, that with us there 316 4, 14 | spoken of when it is said, "I will praise Thee among much 317 4, 14 | blessed Cyprian, which, I think, came there by accident, 318 4, 18 | Now the author I have quoted could have exemplified 319 4, 18 | that an address such as I wish to give shape to is 320 4, 18 | esteemed in the Church. I speak to your shame. Is 321 4, 20 | reasons thus: "Brethren, I speak after the manner of 322 4, 20 | which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, 323 4, 20 | sisters." And also in these: "I beseech you, therefore, 324 4, 20 | And, indeed, I must confess that our authors 325 4, 20 | translators, or whether, as I am more inclined to believe, 326 4, 20 | avoided such ornaments, I dare not affirm; for I confess 327 4, 20 | I dare not affirm; for I confess I do not know. This 328 4, 20 | not affirm; for I confess I do not know. This I know, 329 4, 20 | confess I do not know. This I know, however, that if any 330 4, 20 | these in his translation. I, however (to speak of my 331 4, 20 | others is to me), while I do not in my own speech, 332 4, 20 | speech, however modestly I think it done, neglect these 333 4, 20 | through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither 334 4, 20 | months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I 335 4, 20 | I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour 336 4, 20 | labour in vain.
