Wisdom - Chapter 17
FREE Catholic Classes
2 While the wicked supposed they had a holy nation in their power, they themselves lay prisoners of the dark, in the fetters of long night, confined under their own roofs, banished from eternal providence.
3 While they thought to remain unnoticed with their secret sins, curtained by dark forgetfulness, they were scattered in fearful dismay, terrified by apparitions.
11 Wickedness is confessedly very cowardly, and it condemns itself; under pressure from conscience it always assumes the worst.
13 the less you rely within yourself on this, the more alarming it is not to know the cause of your suffering.
