135. Clean and Righteous Slay Thou Not
“The clean and righteous slay thou not.” A righteous is one who justifies the Creator: whatever he feels, whether good or bad, he takes above reason. This is considered “right.” Clean refers to the cleanness of the matter, the state as he sees it. This is so because “a judge has only what his eyes see.” And if one does not understand the matter, or cannot attain the matter, one should not blur the forms as they seem to one’s eyes. This is considered “left,” and he should nurture both.
