6with hearts overflowing with love for God, they help on the brotherhood of men. It is not mine but Thine they seek.

When God bids one uncover iniquity, in order to

9exterminate it, one should lay it bare; and divine Love will bless this endeavor and those whom it reaches. "Nothing is hid that shall not be revealed."

12It is only a question of time when God shall reveal His rod, and show the plan of battle. Error, left to itself, accumulates. Hence, Solomon's transverse command:
