Augustine on Clearness and Obscurity

Cited from Bruce Waltke,  An Old Testament Theology:

There is sufficient clearness to enlighten the elect, and sufficient obscurity to humble them.  There is sufficient obscurity to blind the reprobate, and sufficient clearness to condemn them, and make them inexcusable.

—Saint Augustine
