And for that reason, this must be worked at with all our strength so that, free from secular occupations and mundane deeds, and, if possible, leaving behind these unnecessary fables of friends, we may apply ourselves to the word of God and "meditate on his Law day and night," 3. so that, converted with the whole heart, we can see the face of Moses, 4. opened and unveiled. It is particularly true in these things which were read now either about the priestly clothing or the consecration of the high priest in which certain things of this sort are said, that also exclude completely that carnal Israel from an historical interpretation. Because of this, we must strive to explain these things not by the power of human thinking but by prayers and supplications poured out to God. In this likewise we stand in need of your aid, that God, Father of the Word, may give us the word "in the opening of our mouth" 5. that we can consider the wonders of his Law.
