    Chapter XXXVI.—All Blessings are Given to Us Through Christ.

    This is the way, beloved, in which we find our Saviour,4190

    4190 Literally, “that which saves us.”

    even Jesus Christ, the High Priest of all our offerings, the defender and helper of our infirmity.  By Him we look up to the heights of heaven.  By Him we behold, as in a glass, His immaculate and most excellent visage.  By Him are the eyes of our hearts opened.  By Him our foolish and darkened understanding blossoms4191

    4191 Or, “rejoices to behold.”

    up anew towards His marvellous light.  By Him the Lord has willed that we should taste of immortal knowledge,4192

    4192 Or, “knowledge of immortality.”

    “who, being the brightness of His majesty, is by so much greater than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”4193

    4193 Heb. i. 3, 4.

      For it is thus written, “Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire.”4194

    4194 Ps. civ. 4; Heb. i. 7.

      But concerning His Son4195

    4195 Some render, “to the Son.”

    the Lord spoke thus:  “Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten Thee.  Ask of me, and I will give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession.”4196

    4196 Ps. ii. 7, 8; Heb. i. 5.

      And again He saith to Him, “Sit Thou at my right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”4197

    4197 Ps. cx. 1; Heb. i. 13.

      But who are His enemies?  All the wicked, and those who set themselves to oppose the will of God.4198

    4198 Some read, “who oppose their own will to that of God.”
