Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol IX:
The Epistles of Clement.: Chapter XXII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXII.—These Exhortations are Confirmed by the Christian Faith, Which Proclaims the Misery of Sinful Conduct.

Now the faith which is in Christ confirms all these [admonitions].  For He Himself by the Holy Ghost thus addresses us:  “Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 4106   What man is he that desireth life, and loveth to see good days?  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.  The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are [open] unto their prayers.  The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.  The righteous cried, and the Lord heard him, and delivered him out of all his troubles.” 4107   “Many are the stripes [appointed for] the wicked; but mercy shall compass those about who hope in the Lord.” 4108
