Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter XV. How the Old Law would root out anger not only from the actions but from the thoughts.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XV.

How the Old Law would root out anger not only from the actions but from the thoughts.

But why should we spend any more time over evangelic and apostolic precepts, when even the old law, which is thought to be somep. 262 what slack, guards against the same thing, when it says, “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart;” and again, “Be not mindful of the injury of thy citizens;” 943 and again, “The ways of those who preserve the recollection of wrongs are towards death”? 944 You see there too that wickedness is restrained not only in action, but also in the secret thoughts, since it is commanded that hatred be utterly rooted out from the heart, and not merely retaliation for, but the very recollection of, a wrong done.



Lev. 19:17, 18.


Prov. xii. 28 (LXX.).

Next: Chapter XVI. How useless is the retirement of those who do not give up their bad manners.
