14"Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."15"Their feet are swift to shed blood;16destruction and misery are in their ways;17and the way of peace they have not known."

Our hatred does not change quickly, for we do not like our enemies, but we wish to get rid of hard men. The peoples who hate their enemies shed rivers of blood, because man, in his fury, turns into a beast. There is no peace in us, in spite of all our chattering talks about peace. All men are murderers, and their hearts are filled with contempt, spite, and haughtiness, because they do not know that God is love, truth, and purity. They lost the sense of truth, and have neither a standard nor rest, but have dropped themselves in a critical situation.
