Chapter 6

(6.1) To these men who conducted their lives in holiness are added a great multitude of the chosen, whoever because of envy suffered many tortures and torments, being most beautiful examples among us.

(6.2) Because of envy, women were persecuted, Danaids and Dirkai having suffered fearful and unholy torments. Having finished the race by their secure faith, the weak of body took up the illustrious prize.

(6.3) Envy has estranged married women from men and changed the saying by our father Adam, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh."

(6.4) Envy and strife has ruined great cities and uprooted great nations.
