Chapter LII.—Such a Confession is Pleasing to God.

The Lord, brethren, stands in need of nothing; and He desires nothing of any one except that confession be made to Him.  245For, says the elect David, “I will confess unto the Lord; and that will please Him more than a young bullock42784278    I. omits from Ps. lxix. 31, 32 the word following “bullock.” that hath horns and hoofs.  Let the poor see it, and be glad.”42794279    Ps. lxix. 31, 32.  And again he saith, “Offer42804280    Or, “sacrifice.” unto God the sacrifice of praise, and pay thy vows unto the Most High.  And call upon me in the day of thy trouble:  I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”42814281    Ps. l. 14, l5.  I. omits Ps. l. 15.  For “the sacrifice of God is a broken spirit.”42824282    Ps. li. 17.
