8 These vessels which carry the blood from the heart were formerly supposed, from being found empty after death, to contain only air; and hence, indeed, their name,-for "the artery" was originally the windpipe. Comp. Cicero (De Nat. Deor. ii. 55, 138): "Sanguis per venas in omne corpus diffunditur, et spiritus per arterias": i.e. Blood is diffused throughout the body by the veins, and by air by the arteries.

20 This repetition of one word for rhetorical effect is characteristic of our author (as, before him, it was of the Apostle Paul): "Intellige quid non intelligas, ne totum non intelligas...qui ut veraciter intelligat, quod non intelligit hoc se non intelligere intelligit."

21 Ps. xlix. 12, 13.

22 See Rom. v. 18.

23 [The author seems here to have such texts as 1 Thess. v. 23 in mind (see below, chs. 19 and 36), and to mean that sometimes the whole inner man is called "spirit," and sometimes "spirit" is distinguished from "soul."-W.]

24 1 Cor. xv. 40.
