Chapter XII.

Several testimonies against vainglory.

And so the Apostle warns us: “Be not desirous of vainglory.”10121012    Gal. v. 26. And the Lord, rebuking the Pharisees, says, “How can ye believe, who receive glory from one another, and seek not the glory which comes from God alone?”10131013    S. John v. 44. Of these too the blessed David speaks with a threat: “For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men.”10141014    Ps. lii. (liii.) 6.
