Chapter iii

"KING. — Let us from point to point this story know."

"He is the One, self-proceeding; and from Him all things proceed.

And in them He Himself exerts His activity; no mortal Beholds Him, but He beholds all!"

Orphic Hymn

"And Athens, O Athena, is thy own! Great Goddess hear! and on my darkened mind Pour thy pure light in measure unconfined; That sacred light, O all-proceeding Queen, Which beams eternal from thy face serene. My soul, while wand'ring on the earth, inspire With thy own blessed and impulsive fire!"

Proclus; Taylor: To Minerva.

"Nowfaith is the substance of things. . . . By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies in peace."

Hebrews xi. 1, 31

"What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man hath faith, and have not works? Can Faith save him? . . . Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?" James ii. 14, 25
