Commentary on this verse

Verse 10. But it is the dictate of the Divine Word to self-love and its combined falsities, that since Divine Truth is from Divine Good, Divine Good is communicated therewith, and being hateful to self-love with its errors, appears to cause torment; and hence the corrupted man is totally vastated as to the will, being consumed, in reality by self-love.
