Commentary on this verse

Verse 8. And according to his state he perceives through his falsified doctrine, that this truth is the ultimate or literal sense of the Word, received and obeyed from an external bond; or that it is Divine Truth intended to lead man, to attract him, to dwell with him, and thus to deter him, in his external state, from his evil courses.
