The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
He [Christ] is punished; we have peace. I, you, all of us have angered God; for that he needed to atone, so that we might be redeemed from sin and obtain peace. He suffers; we go free. the indulgence hawkers assured us that our desperate beads of sweat and gross carousings would, by the pope’s indulgences, be freed from pain and punishment. They directed us to believe that our souls must suffer in purgatory, when in reality (even as they spoke) they already had departed in grace and love. Does not the prophet say, “The chastisement of our peace was upon him,” in order that it might be well with us and we might enjoy good days? This great love and grace no person should ever so shamefully forget. The great harm the devil caused us in paradise [i.e. Eden] has been healed by Christ’s wounds.The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
