The original canonical sacred scripture is of infallible truthfulness and wholly free of error, or, what is the same thing, in the canonical sacred scripture there is no lie, no falsehood, not even the smallest error either in words or matter, but everything, together and singly, that is handed on in them is most true, whether it be a matter of dogma or of morals or of history or of chronology or of topography or of nomenclature; no want of knowledge, no thoughtlessness or forgetfulness, no lapse of memory can or ought to be attributed to the secretaries of the Holy Spirit in their setting down of the sacred writings.
