Chapter 17

As far as was possible,
and could be done with perspicuity,
I cherish the hope that,
according to my desire,
I have omitted none of those things at present [demanding consideration],
which bear upon your salvation.

For if I should write to you about things future,
ye would not understand,
because such knowledge is hid in parables.

These things then are so.
