2. By repentance to life a sinner has the sight and sense not only of the danger, but also of the filthiness and odiousness of his sins, which are contrary to the holy nature and righteous law of God. Also, the sinner comprehends God’s mercy in Christ to those who are penitent. He therefore grieves for and hates his sins, so as to turn from all of them to God,a purposing and endeavoring to walk with Him in all the ways of His commandments.b

[3] Here, the editor translates scandalize as “sinfully offends against.” This older use of scandalize does not imply that the sin must be major or widely public; it does imply that the sin is at least known to the one offended. Editorial opinion: The editor also wishes to note that this teaching must surely also apply in cases in which the one offended is unaware of the offense, e.g., secret theft.
