LII.—Deserters.

For deserters are not called so as all of one kind.  One is wicked, another partially withdraws; but yet true judgments are decreed for both.  So Christ is fought against, even as Cæsar is obeyed.  Seek the refuge of the king, if thou hast been a delinquent.  Do thou implore of Him; do thou prostrate confess to Him:  He will grant all things whose also are all our things.  The camp being replaced, beware of sinning further; do not wander long as a soldier through caves of the wild beasts.  Let it be sin to thee to cease from unmeasured doing.
