Headword: Θλίψις
Adler number: theta,391
Translated headword: tribulation
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
By this name many things are designated: imprisonment, captivity, exile and things of that sort.[1]
In reference to God, [Scripture] calls the bitter retributions "wrath and anger and affliction". For it does not [say that wickedness is the avenging angels'] nature or will.[2]
Greek Original:
Θλίψις: τούτῳ τῷ ὀνόματι πολλὰ δηλοῦται: φυλακαί, ἀλύσεις, ἐξορίαι, καὶ ὅσα τοιαῦτα. θυμὸν καὶ ὀργὴν καὶ θλίψιν ἐπὶ θεοῦ τὰς πικρὰς τιμωρίας καλεῖ: οὐ γὰρ φύσιν, οὐδὲ προαίρεσιν.
