And another thing I must tell you: they have no seemliness, they don't even want it at all; all are ruined, but they boast of their own destruction; but to return to the one Truth, they never think; and to live without God is naught but torment.
И еще скажу: благообразия не имеют, даже не хотят сего; все погибли, и только каждый хвалит свою погибель, а обратиться к единой истине не помыслит; а жить без бога - одна лишь мука.
