"So blind will he be" (Bernard). That he offereth service unto God (latreian prosperein twi qewi). Infinitive (present active) indirect discourse after doxh. For the phrase see Hebrews 6:1 ; Hebrews 8:3 ; Hebrews 9:7 . The rabbis so felt when they crucified Jesus and when they persecuted the disciples ( Acts 6:13 ; Acts 7:57 ). No persecution is more bitter than when done by religious enthusiasts and bigots like the Spanish Inquisition.
