41 Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.

Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 41. And when this is perceived the soul comes into a state of external humiliation and confession of sin from fear of punishment, and desires to enter into the heavenly state and combat with its evils, and to carry out in its own strength all the dictates of Divine Love and Wisdom. It calls to mind all the maxims of virtue and doctrinals which have been learned, and thinks itself quite prepared with these to enter at once into an interior and spiritual state.
