Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I:
IRENÆUS: XLIII.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

XLIII.

In 4887 these things there was signified by prophecy that the people, having become transgressors, shall be bound by the chains of their own sins. But the breaking of the bonds of their own accord indicates that, upon repentance, they shall be again loosed from the shackles of sin.


Footnotes

575:4887

Most probably from a homily upon the third and fourth chapters of Ezekiel. It is found repeated in Stieren’s and Migne’s edition as Fragment xlviii. extracted from a Catena on the Book of Judges.


Next: XLIV.
