HOMILY 4

Concerning the Scripture, "If a soul sins, and neglects the precepts
of the Lord
, and lies to his neighbor over a deposit or
a partnership
," 1.etc.

IF, according to the faith of the divine law, the Lord said these things to Moses, which have been read to us, I think nevertheless that the words of God ought not be understood according to the incapacity of the hearers but according to the majesty of him who spoke them. It says, "the Lord spoke." 2. What is "the Lord"? Let the Apostle respond to you and learn from him that "the Lord is Spirit." 3. But if the word of the Apostle is not sufficient for you, hear the Lord himself when he said in the Gospels, "God is Spirit." 4. If therefore both the Lord and God are "Spirit," we ought to hear spiritually those things which the Spirit says. Still further I say, we are to believe the things the Lord says, not only to be spiritual things, but even the Spirit. I will prove these things not with my own understanding but from the Gospels. Hear our Lord and Savior when he speaks to his disciples, "the words which I spoke to you are spirit and life." 5. If, therefore, we learned from the voice of the Savior himself that the words which he spoke to the Apostles "are spirit and life," we ought by no means to doubt that we must believe that those which he spoke through Moses likewise are "spirit and life."

2. But let us see what these things are about which we now ought to speak further as best we are able. It says, "And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Whatever soul sins, and neglects the precepts of the Lord, and lies to a neighbor over a deposit,
