Adler number: pi,1325
Translated headword: circumcision
Vetting Status: high
Circumcision was given to the Jews for three reasons: so as to be a sign of faith, and indicative and symbolic of the race of Abraham, and a riddle of a pure and moderate order. It was not given so as to create righteousness, but [to be] a seal and a sign of the righteousness of Abraham [stemming] from faith.
Greek Original:
Περιτομή: ἡ περιτομὴ τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις διὰ τρεῖς αἰτίας ἐδόθη. ὥστε σημεῖον εἶναι πίστεως, καὶ τοῦ Ἀβραμιαίου γένους δηλωτικὸν καὶ σύμβολον, καὶ αἴνιγμα πολιτείας καθαρᾶς καὶ σώφρονος. ὥστε οὐχ ὡς δικαιοσύνης ποιητικὴ ἐδόθη, ἀλλὰ σφραγὶς καὶ σημεῖον τῆς ἐκ πίστεως δικαιοσύνης τοῦ Ἀβραάμ.
From ancient commentary on Ep.Romans 4.9-11.
