[sc. A phrase meaning] influence from above and good activity in the holy scripture.[1]
The ancient [writers] used to call wise things dexia ["dexterous things; things on the right hand side"], but stupid things aristera ["sinister things; things on the left hand side"]. Sophocles [writes]: "for never from your own mind did you walk [so far] toward the sinister, o child of Telamon."[2]
