And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
Read Chapter 3
Ambrose of Milan
Moses, too, passing by things of this world, saw a great sight and said, “I will turn aside and see this great sight,” for had he been held by the fleeting pleasures of this world he would not have seen so great a mystery. .
When Moses sought the glory of contemplation on high, he said, “I will pass over and see this vision.” For unless he had withdrawn the footsteps of his heart from love of the world, he would never have been able to understand heavenly things. .
