28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the son sof the Anakims there.

Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 28. And doubted to what state the soul was being led. The inclination towards evil discouraged all the faculties of the mind and turned its affections away from heaven, suggesting that the falses which favour hereditary evil are more powerful and influential than the truths of the Church, and that the doctrinals or principles of action in their favour are strong, and will prevent the soul from entering into heavenly things; and, moreover, in them the soul had some perception of the gigantic power of the persuasions lying rooted in the hidden springs of action, and ever favouring some selfish end.
