Chapter XXVI.—We Shall Rise Again, Then, as the Scripture Also Testifies.

Do we then deem it any great and wonderful thing for the Maker of all things to raise up again those that have piously served Him in the assurance of a good faith, when even by a bird He shows us the mightiness of His power to fulfil His promise?41234123    Literally, “the mightiness of His promise.”  For [the Scripture] saith in a certain place, “Thou shalt raise me up, and I shall confess unto Thee”;41244124    Ps. xxviii. 7, or from some apocryphal book. and again, “I laid me down, and slept”; “I awaked, because Thou art with me;”41254125    Comp. Ps. iii. 6. and again, Job says, “Thou shalt raise up this flesh of mine, which has suffered all these things.”41264126    Job xix. 25, 26.
