Chapter LI.—Let the
Partakers in Strife Acknowledge Their Sins.
Let us therefore implore forgiveness for all those
transgressions which through any [suggestion] of the adversary we have
committed. And these who have been the leaders of sedition and
disagreement ought to have respect4273
to the common
hope. For such as live in fear and love would rather that they
themselves than their neighbours should be involved in suffering.
And they prefer to bear blame themselves, rather than that the concord
which has been well and piously4274
handed down to
us should suffer. For it is better that a man should acknowledge
his transgressions than that he should harden his heart, as the hearts
of those were hardened who stirred up sedition against Moses the
of God, and whose
condemnation was made manifest [unto all]. For they went down
alive into Hades, and death swallowed them up.4276
Pharaoh with his army and all the
princes of Egypt, and the chariots with their riders, were sunk in the
depths of the Red Sea, and perished,4277
for no other
reason than that their foolish hearts were hardened, after so many
signs and wonders had been wrought in the land of Egypt by Moses the
servant of God.
