Chapter X.—Continuation: audacity of Satan.

Darest thou, then, who didst fall “as lightning”13411341    Luke x. 18. from the very highest glory, to say to the Lord, “Cast thyself down from hence13421342    Matt. iv. 6. [to Him] to whom the things that are not are reckoned as if they were,13431343    Comp. Rom. iv. 17. and to provoke to a display of vainglory Him that was free from all ostentation? And didst thou pretend to read in Scripture concerning Him: “For He hath given His angels charge concerning Thee, and in their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest thou shouldest dash Thy foot against a stone?”13441344    Matt. iv. 6. At the same time thou didst pretend to be ignorant of the rest, furtively concealing what [the Scripture] predicted concerning thee and thy servants: “Thou shalt tread upon the adder and the basilisk; the lion and the dragon shall thou trample under foot.”13451345    Ps. xci. 13.
