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. Sprinkling the blood of a sheep [mixed] with hyssop onto the doorposts they used to escape the hands of the destroyer. And those things [are] an examplar of sufferings bringing deliverance: for here [is] blood, and a timber, [sc. signifying] salvation.[1]

Ὕσσωπος: βοτάνη ῥυπτική. Δαβίδ: ῥαντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι. οὐδεμίαν γὰρ ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτημάτων εἰργάζετο. αἴνιγμα δέ τι σημαίνει. ὑσσώπῳ τὸ αἷμα τοῦ προβάτου καὶ ταῖς φλιαῖς ἐπιρράναντες τοῦ ὀλοθρεύοντος τὰς χεῖρας διέφευγον. τύπος δὲ ἐκεῖνα τῶν σωτηρίων παθημάτων: αἷμα γὰρ ἐνταῦθα, καὶ ξύλον, σωτηρία.
