No Prophecy of Scripture is of any Private Interpretation.

All have the right to read Scipture as it has been written: no clergy has the right to further expound that which has been expounded by the Spirit of Christ in the Prophets and as the Living Word inspiring the Apostles. The role of the assembly is to REST (from ritual), READ and DISCUSS the Word of God.  Jesus paid it all can be interpreted as "Jesus paid it all" and He asks rhetorically "Why spend your money on what is bread: the water of the Word is free of charge."

Father Son Spirit Passages: there is ONE GOD and Jesus of Nazareth whom God made to be both Lord and Christ

Christ in Spirit spoke ONLY through the Prophets and Jesus whom God made to be both Lord and Christ fulfilled the prophecies.  While all of the Bible is valuable for teaching and training, the Church is built upon the foundation of the Prophets and Apostles: Christ is the corner stone because He both defined the Church, inclusively and exclusively for the Synagogue in the Wilderness, He fulfilled the prophecies, He is Head of the Church and He will judge all people by HIS WORD.
Luke 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers:
         for they indeed killed them,
        and ye build their sepulchres.
Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the WISDOM of God, 
        I will send them prophets and apostles, 
        and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, 
        which was shed from the foundation of the world, 
        may be required of this generation;
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, 
        which perished between the altar and the temple: 
        verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

John 6:44 No man can come to me,
         except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
         and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, 
        And they shall be all taught of God. 
        Every man therefore that hath heard
        and hath learned of the Father,
        cometh unto me.

Ephesians 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men,
        as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners   
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,   
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,   
        by whom also he made the worlds;
James 5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets,
        who have spoken in the name of the Lord,
        for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

1Peter 1:10  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently,
        who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time
        the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
        when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ,
        and the glory that should follow.
1Peter 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves,
        but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you
        by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost
        sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
God the One Father in heaven made Jesus of Nazareth to be both Lord and Christ. When the father "breathed" on Jesus as the Son (Word) it was articulated into audible words.  Jesus commanded that we teach that which HE commanded to be taught: if they cannot understand that then it is a MARK that God hides himself from the WISE (Sophists: preachers, singers, players, actors) and Jesus will not PRAY for those of the WORLD:
John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world,
        but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds
them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,
        who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
John 17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
John 17:11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee.
        Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me,
        that they may be one, as we are.
John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name:
        those that thou gavest me I have kept,
        and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition;
        that the scripture might be fulfilled.
John 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world,
        that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them,
        because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

If it is not directly commanded by Christ in the prophets or the apostles who record the prophecies made more perfect by Jesus of Nazareth then it is OF THE WORLD: songs, sermons, dramas: Christ gives His Word FREE OF CHARGE OR CHANGE in Isaiah 58.
Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way,
        and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
        and let him return unto the LORD,
        and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,
        and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Isaiah 58 forbids you to seek your own pleasure or speak your own words.

Paul does not restrict Bible reading and interpretation for "ordinary" Christians who must defacto be Disciples by being baptized into Christ and becoming students of what Christ inspired: this is limited to the Prophets and Apostles to undersand the spiritual civillian thread. On the other hand, the INSTITUTES such as the Israelite Monarchy was a Civil-Military-Clergy sect whom Christ in Spirit identified as robbers and parasites.

Private interpretation means "further expounding." If you do not want to repudiate God in Christ as the WORD of God, your task is to read and lear "that which is written" as a one-another Bible class.  Do not become slaves again.

2 Peter 1 major textual notes
    Peter defines the written Scriptures as the sole resource for the assembly, ekklesia or synagogue of Christ.  Christ the Rock ordained the Church of Christ in the wilderness: this was inclusive of rest, reading and rehearsing or memorizing the Word of God during the Wilderness Wandering. This would include all that they needed to live a godly life and protect themselves from the powerful.  This was exclusive of vocal or instrumental rejoicing which was reserved for sending signals, making war or celebrating victory.  In the Christian system the Church of Christ is freed from the burden of the Law used by the lawless to enslave them in pagan religion at the Temple.

The direct command of Jesus was to make disciples by baptizing them and then teaching them what He had taught: this would include the godly side of the story in the Prophets and by the Apostles who made were inspired by Christ. All of the definitions of the church in the Bible and early history notes that church was for Bible study and the Lord's Supper.

There are TWO THREADS running through the Old Testament: the Civil government of which King, Kingdom, Temple, animal sacrifices and the Levitical musicians were abandoned to worship the starry host (Acts 7 etal).  Jacob warned against ever attending any of the assemblies of the tribe of Levi and we know that the word "Levites" is a title connected to Dionysus or Bacchus worship in Egypt. That history is recorded by the Scribes which Jesus rejects.

Jesus identified the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites by pointing to mouth religion in Isaiah 29 and Ezekiel 33 where the hypocrites are performance, professional speakers, singers and instrument players.

Jer. 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is WITH US? LO, CERTAINLY IN VAIN MADE HE IT; THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS in vain.

Jer. 8:4  Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD;
        Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?
Jer. 8:5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding?
        they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.
Jer. 8:6 I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright:
        no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done?
        every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.
Jer. 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times;
        and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming;
        but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
The Spiritual Thread was the written word delibered by the Living Word as the voice of Jehovah God.  The SIRITUAL THREAD is recorded by the prophets guided by the Spirit of Christ (1 Pet 1:11).

Most of what we know as THE FAITH or the Christian System is revealed by the prophets and was available to the spiritual people who attended synagogue or church in the wilderness.  Paul said of Timothy:
2 Tim. 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
His mother and grandmother read the Scriptures as recorded: just as the president of the Synagogue taught them with preaching outlawed other than translating and explaining difficult passages.

When Philip informed the Ethiopian eunuch about Jesus the Christ, the eunuch wanted to be baptized: that is because his Isaiah preserved in the Dead Sea Scrolls defines how Messiah will cleanse our old garments and make them as white as snow.  When Mark begins his accounts he tells us about John's role by quoting Isaiah.

Almost without exception the church as institute has shifted to the preaching of sermons which by definition take bits and pieces of the Scripture and interpret it into a lecture which they believe can make the Word more powerful.  One of the oldest defections was the discovery that conducting synagogue or school of the Bible was not wildly popular while you could attract the massed multitudes by telling Bible stories and punching it up with jokes and tricks of rhetoric: rhetoric is defined as a hypocritical art. There was no "private interpretation" by further expanding into songs for the assembly until the year 373: these were quite good summaries of the Old Testament.



"Some groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church and the Jehovah's Witnesses, claim that their denomination's hierarchy must interpret scripture for the individual believer. Followers of these denominations often point to the disagreements among groups that don't claim to have an infallible interpreter as evidence that individuals need a hierarchy to interpret scripture for them. Recognizing such an authority supposedly would result in more unity.

Catholic apologists often cite the disunity among the churches within evangelicalism, as well as passages such as Acts 8:30-31 and 2 Peter 1:20, as evidence that an infallible interpreter of scripture is needed. Supposedly, Christians should let the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church tell them what scripture actually teaches. Resource

But, outlawing private interpretation denies that anyone has a role to play--for a price.


Rubel Shelly and John York in the Jesus Proposal [p. 114] Our proposal to focus on Jesus means that Scripture is NO LONGER a set of proof-texts or a collection of facts or God's rulebook for human behavior. Scripture is the unfolding story of God acting both to create and to re-create. It is not an easy book to understand.

It was NEVER intended as a document to [p. 115] be INDIVIDUALLY read and interpreted--a sort--of correspondence course in salvation.

Prior to the invention of the printing press, access to the content of Scripture was oral. For thousands of years it could only be heard and interpreted in the context of community.

Yes, INDIVIDUALS could comment on Scripture, but those comments were always for the LARGER hearing of the community.

Only after there was INDIVIDUAL access did there become an opportunity for an individual, isolated reading and interpretation that had no need or use for community.

Just as identity in Christ is always COMMUNITY identity, our reading of Scripture becomes a COMMUNITY READING as well.

While we still have access to reading as individuals, we stop asking, "What does this mean to me?"--as though there is such an isolated meaning. Instead we have a GROUP MENTALITY that asks, "What does this mean to US?"

It is true that the Synagogue begun in the wilderness demanding reading the Word: this was always the collective command and did not change until "preaching" was added to the "liturgy" along with singing after Constantine and the addition of pagan priests. However, the common practice was for Scribes to attend most public affairs, record and have copies ready to sell before the people left.  People made their own copies and the synagogues and churches had Bibles "chained" and could be read at any time or copied.

But, outlawing private interpretation denies that anyone has a role to play--for a price.  This denies that the Spirit named "Jesus Christ the Righteous" had the ability to speak for Himself.

That is why "private interpretation" is defined by the "good" professionals as not adding to or subtracting to the Scriptures. However, the subject is PROPHECIES.  Fiddling with the prophecies is fatal because written by the Spirit of Christ they define the true rest as "not seeking your own pleasures or speaking your own words."  Now, that is a tough blow to those who have made a career out of learing rhetorical performance preaching.  However, Paul warned:

2 Cor 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

Clement Pedagogue 3

And in this way those who frequent the market-place and the shop philosophize.

"For thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain." [20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." [Ex 20:7)

But those who act contrary to these things-the avaricious, the liars, the hypocrites,

those who make merchandise of the truth-the Lord cast out of His Father's court (John ii. 13-17; Matt. xxi. 12, 13; Luke xix. 45, 46) not willing that the holy house of God should be the house of unrighteous traffic either in words or in material things.


Jesus as the Christ of God came to fulfill or FILL FULL those prophecies so that what the prophets did not yet grasp, Jesus  made them more certain.  That certainty was eye and ear witnessed by the Apostles who are the second class of people used by God to speak to mankind.
2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, Luke 1: 67
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, Luke 1: 68
And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; Luke 1: 69
As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: Luke 1: 70

How? Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Pet 1:11

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit OF prophecy. Re 19:10

Rom 16:25 Now to him that is of power to
           stablish you according to my gospel,
           and the preaching of Jesus Christ,
           according to the revelation of the mystery,
           which was kept secret since the world began,

Rom. 16:26 But now is made manifest,
        and by the scriptures of the prophets,
        according to the commandment of the everlasting God,
        made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

Rom 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

Peter understood that the true prophets were murdered for speaking spiritual truth as they repudiated the PRIESTLY religion imposed because of transgression.  As a warning Peter makes it clear that the Apostles were ordained by Jesus Christ, taught and guided into all truth by the Spirit of Christ.  Therefore, any tricks of speaking or the use of artificial means to enhance the Word would make it invalid. Furthermore, any attempt to enhance the Word by sight or sound or theatrical means would identify the teacher as a false teacher.  God did promise to give us a way of escape if we are tempted by theatrics.

2 Peter  1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,
        to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
        through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
Zechariah identified the BRANCH as Jesus, Joshua or Jehovah--Saves.  Therefore, Jesus Christ is our God and Savior: because we live in the physical world, God uses physical means.
2 Peter  1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
        through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
        we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of
        the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity,
        and purify [wasj] unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
There is nothing that any human can add to enhance that which is perfect:

2 Peter  1:3 According as his divine power
        hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
        through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

2 Peter  1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
        that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
        having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Jesus commanded the apostles to go preach the Gospel: believers were to be discipled by baptism and a life of teaching that which Jesus taught.
Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [Jesus Christ]
Matt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Peter said that Jesus made the prophecies more certain by fulfilling and teaching them.  In addition, He taught them how to make disciples which means a student of the Word of Christ.  Because it was the Spirit of Christ in the Prophets, that includes all of the spiritual thread.  Therefore, that excludes anything which arises out of our own "doubtful dispuations."
A disciple is a Christian and the singular task is to be a student of Christ through the Words of Christ which He said are Spirit and Truth.

2 Peter  1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2 Peter  1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
2 Peter  1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:
        for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,
        and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
This has the same meaning of the seven spirits which would rest on the Branch like the flickering flames on the Menorah or candlestick:

Is. 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,
        the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might,
        the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
Is. 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:
        and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
2 Peter  1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound,
        they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful
        in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter  1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind,
        and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten
        that he was purged from his old sins.

         give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
         for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
2 Peter  1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly i

Because Peter as an Apostle had been chosen to deliver the truth to mankind, knowing that he was getting older his way of leaving us the same MEMORY was to write his section of the Word of God.

2 Peter  1:12  Wherefore I will not be negligent
        to put you always in remembrance of these things,
        though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

2 Peter  1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle,
        to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
2 Peter  1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
2 Peter  1:15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease
        to have these things always in remembrance.

That means that Peter does not give any one who is not a prophet or apostle in the original sense the right to add to or subtract from the Words of Christ.  As the Jews knew in the synagogue that forbids making sermons or songs out of bits and pieces just to make a poing.

2 Peter  1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables,
        when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
        but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

2 Peter  1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory,
        when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory,
        This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

2 Peter  1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
2 Peter  1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
        whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
        as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
        until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

2 Peter  1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

If you remember Romans 14 Paul outlawed "doubtful disputations" which were common in the marketplace where people gathered to enjoy pagan religions.
Disputing (1261) (dialogismos from diá. Disputing” implies a questioning mind and suggests an arrogant attitude by those who assume they’re always right. Arguing with others in the body of Christ is disruptive.
Dialogismos is used 11 times in the Septuagint (LXX) (Ps 40:5, 56:5, 92:5, 94:11, 139:2, 139:20, 146:4, Isa 59:7, Jer 4:14, Lam 3:60-61) Dialogismos often means the perverse, vain thinking which contemplates destruction (Ps. 94:11), and is turned against God (Jer. 4:14; Isa. 59:7) and against the godly (Ps. 56:5).

NIDNTT notes that...

In the NT dialogizomai (related verb) and dialogismos are always used with a slightly depreciatory connotation. The thoughts of the human heart do not necessarily lead, as the Greeks thought, to a knowledge of the truth (cf. 1 Cor. 1:21-25), but are evil (Mk. 7:21; Matt. 15:19), full of doubt and suspicion (Mk. 2:6, 8; Lk. 5:22; 6:8), moved by the passing moment (Lk. 3:15), full of greed (Lk. 12:17; 20:14), always concerned with the superficial (Mk. 8:16f.; Matt. 16:7f.) and full of sly calculation (Matt. 11:25; Mk. 11:31).

In Chapter 15 Paul outlaws SELF PLEASURE or "creating mental excitement" which is connected to rhetoric and music.  The role for the church in synagogue was to "use ONE MIND and ONE MOUTH" and speak "that which is written" which Paul calls Scripture.

Peter demands that we have nothing to add to or subtract from or enhance with rhetoric, singing or music which John in Revelation 18:22-23 calls "sorcery." That is trying to bewitch and cause people to believe the preacher rather than the inspired word.

God needs no INTERPRETER: in the synagogue and in the early church the practice.
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city
        them that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Paul commanded Timothy how to conduct "church":
1Tim. 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [public] reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

In the synagogue that meant to discuss the read portion for that week.
NO private interpretation means NOTHING can be used to enhance or aid the pure word of God.  The word is found in the text meaning EVERYTHING that the performance based institutes uses.  The direct command is to speak the word and speak is the opposite of poetry, music or rhetoric.

The wife of Cadmus was Harmonia, daughter of Ares and Aphrodite.

Bacchae [770] Wherefore, my lord and master, receive this deity, whoe'er he be, within the city; for, great as he is in all else, I have likewise heard men say, 'twas he that gave the vine to man, sorrow's antidote. Take wine away and Cypris flies, and every other human joy is dead.

[685] And may the joyless swarm of diseases settle far from the heads of the inhabitants, and to all the young people may Lyceus be graciously disposed.

The epithet Lyceus, often applied to Apollo, was commonly connected with the belief that he was the destroyer and protector of wolves (lukoi). As a destructive power he is invoked to ward off enemies (Aesch. Seven 145); as an averter of evil he protects herds, flocks, and the young. According to Pausanias (Paus. 2.19.3) Danaus established a sanctuary in honor of Lyceus at Argos, where, in later times, the most famous of all Apollo's temples was consecrated to him under the title of “Wolf-god.” Pausanias notes: Accordingly, believing that Apollo had brought the wolf on the herd, he founded a sanctuary of Apollo Lycius.

Homer to Hermes 4: What skill is this? What song for desperate cares? What way of song? For verily here are three things to hand all at once from which to choose, --mirth, and love, and sweet sleep. [450] And though I am a follower of the Olympian Muses who love dances and the bright path of song --the full-toned chant and ravishing thrill of flutes --yet I never cared for any of those feats of skill at young men's revels, as I do now for this: [455] I am filled with wonder, O son of Zeus, at your sweet playing.

[475] but since, as it seems, your heart is so strongly set on playing the lyre, chant, and play upon it, and give yourself to merriment, taking this as a gift from me, and do you, my friend, bestow glory on me. Sing well with this clear-voiced companion in your hands; for you are skilled in good, well-ordered utterance. [480] From now on bring it confidently to the rich feast and lovely dance and glorious revel, a joy by night and by day. Whoso with wit and wisdom enquires of it cunningly, him it teaches [485] through its sound all manner of things that delight the mind, being easily played with gentle familiarities, for it abhors toilsome drudgery; but whoso in ignorance enquires of it violently, to him it chatters mere vanity and foolishness.

[488] But you are able to learn whatever you please. [490] So then, I will give you this lyre, glorious son of Zeus, while I for my part will graze down with wild-roving cattle the pastures on hill and horse-feeding plain: so shall the cows covered by the bulls calve abundantly both males and females. And now there is no need for you, [495] bargainer though you are, to be furiously angry.”

When Hermes had said this, he held out the lyre: and Phoebus Apollo took it, and readily put his shining whip in Hermes' hand, and ordained him keeper of herds. The son of Maia received it joyfully, [500] while the glorious son of Leto, the lord far-working Apollo, took the lyre upon his left arm and tried each string with the key. Awesomely it sounded at the touch of the god, while he sang sweetly to its note.

And Hermes loved the son of Leto continually, even as he does now, when he had given the lyre as token to the Far-shooter, [510] who played it skilfully, holding it upon his arm. But for himself Hermes found out another cunning art and made himself the pipes whose sound is heard afar.

Plato, Cratylus [425d] Socrates Lots more

It will, I imagine, seem ridiculous that things are made manifest through imitation in letters and syllables; nevertheless it cannot be otherwise. For there is no better theory upon which we can base the truth of the earliest names, unless you think we had better follow the example of the tragic poets, who, when they are in a dilemma, have recourse to the introduction of gods on machines. So we may get out of trouble by saying that the gods gave the earliest names, and therefore they are right.

Soc. I will endeavour to explain, for I do not believe that any single name could have been better adapted to express the attributes of the God, embracing and in a manner signifying all four of them,- music, and prophecy, and medicine, and archery.

Her. That must be a strange name, and I should like to hear the explanation.

Soc. Say rather an harmonious name, as beseems the God of Harmony.  
In the first place, the purgations and purifications which doctors and diviners use,
and their fumigations with drugs magical or medicinal, as well as their washings and lustral sprinklings, have all one and the same object, which is to make a man pure both in body and soul.

Her. Very true.

Soc. And is not Apollo the purifier, and the washer, and the absolver from all impurities?

Plato Cratylus in another translation

[405a] Socrates: His name and nature are in harmony;

you see he is a musical god. For in the first place, purification and purgations used in medicine and in soothsaying, and fumigations with medicinal and magic drugs, and the baths and sprinklings connected with that sort of thing all have the single function of making a man pure in body and soul, do they not?

But this is the god who purifies and washes away (apaloouôn) and delivers (apoluôn be lost, hudôrapolesket' of the water eluding ) from such evils, is he not?

[405c] as being the physician of such diseases, he might properly be called Apoluon (apalouôn, the washer), and with reference to soothsaying and truth and simplicity--for the two are identical--he might most properly be called by the name the Thessalians use; for all Thessalians call the god Aplun. And because he is always by his archery controller of darts (bolôn) he is ever darting (aei ballôn). And with reference to music we have to understand that alpha often signifies “together,” and here it denotes moving together in the heavens about the poles, as we call them, and harmony in song,

38. For, to begin with what is important, what advantage is it to the world that the mightiest kings are here? What, that there are tyrants , lords, and other innumerable and very illustrious powers? What, that there are generals of the greatest experience in war, skilled in taking cities; soldiers steady and utterly invincible in battles of cavalry, or in fighting hand to hand on foot?

What, that there are orators , grammarians, poets, writers, logicians, musicians, ballet-dancers, mimics, actors, singers, trumpeters, flute and reed players?

What, that there are runners , boxers, charioteers, vaulters, walkers on stilts, rope-dancers, jugglers?

What, that there are dealers in salt fish, salters, fishmongers, perfumers, goldsmiths, bird-catchers, weavers of winnowing fans and baskets of rushes?

What, that there are fullers, workers in wool, embroiderers, cooks, confectioners, dealers in mules, pimps, butchers, harlots?
........ What , that there are other kinds of dealers?

What do the other kinds of professors and arts, for the enumeration of which all life would be too short,  contribute to the plan and constitution of the world, that we should believe that it could not have been founded without men, and would not attain its completeness without the addition of a wretched and useless being's exertion?

39. But perhaps, some one will urge, the Ruler of the world sent hither souls sprung from Himself for this purpose-a very rash thing for a man to say -that they which had been divine with Him, not coming into contact with the body and earthly limits, should be buried in the germs of men,  spring from the womb, burst into and keep up the silliest wailings, draw the breasts in sucking, besmear and bedaub themselves with their own filth, then be hushed by the swaying of the frightened nurse and by the sound of rattles.

Did He send souls hither for this reason, that they which had been but now sincere and of blameless virtue should learn as men to feign, to dissemble , to lie, to cheat, to deceive , to entrap with a flatterer's abjectness ;

to conceal one thing in the heart,
express another in the

to ensnare, to beguile the ignorant with crafty devices , to seek out poisons by means of numberless arts suggested by bad feelings, and to be fashioned with deceitful changeableness to suit circumstances?

Was it for this He sent souls, that, living till then in calm and undisturbed tranquillity, they might find in their bodies causes by which to become fierce and savage, cherish hatred and enmity, make war upon each other , subdue and overthrow states; load themselves with, and give themselves up to the yoke of slavery; and finally, be put the one in the other's power, having changed the condition in which they were born?
