You ask, as a lessor to a greater, and you do not receive because you incorrectly10 ask, as a lessor to a greater, in order that you spending it freely by your own pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses, do you not intuitively know that the fondness of the world is hostility concerning God? Therefore the one determining to be a friend belonging to the world constitutes himself an enemy pertaining to God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The spirit, which settled down and feels at ease among you, longs towards envy”? And he gives more favor, wherefore saying, “God arranges Himself in battle against the arrogant, but give favor to the humble.”
