heathens and Jews.

one.    One, under guidance of its reason (as of
e life and spirit of Nature), goes forward and
^ks to elevate itself. It makes itself a way in
being; for its will proceeds out of its own

; government, and goes simply out of itself
rward. Its will remains in its plurality, and is
e god and guide of its plurality.
3.  And though the Free-will of God oppose it
d reprove it, yet the idol-god only flatters with

God. It is born therefore from flesh and blood,
mi its own nature; and is a child of this world,
.d regards its treasure as its love. Hence it is a
rpocrite and a confused Babel. The number of
urality and its own magic confuse it, in that
goes out from one number into many. This
ultiplicity is a confused Babel; and its hypo-
