An herb fit for cleansing. David [says]: "you will cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be purified." For it was effecting no forgiveness of sins. It also indicates a certain riddle.

And those things [are] an exemplar of sufferings bringing deliverance: for here [is] blood, and a timber, [sc. signifying] salvation.[1]
