Chapter Summary

Being fond of virtue, fond of honor, and above all fond of humanity, the most holy Moses urges all people everywhere to become followers of piety and justice, setting before those who repent, as before the victorious, the great prizes of fellowship in the best of polities and enjoyment of everything in it, both great and small. One should repent not only of the errors by which he was deceived for a long time, standing in awe of things created before the Uncreated and Creator, but also in respect to the other essentials of life, passing, as it were, from the worst of bad polities, ochlocracy, to that polity which is most well-ordered, democracy. Excellent are the instructions he gives leading to repentance, through which we are taught to amend our life from discord to a change for the better.
