The Son says to the bride: "You should be like a pipe on which the piper makes lovely music. The owner of the pipe coats it with silver on the outside so that it will look more costly, but with durable gold on the inside.
"You, too, should be coated with the silver of virtuous conduct and human wisdom in order to understand what you owe to God and to your neighbor as well as what is expedient for the eternal salvation of body and soul.
"You should be coated on the inside with the gold of humility so that you long to please no one but Me and are not afraid of being displeasing to other people for My sake.
"The piper does three more things for his pipe. First he wraps it in silk so that it does not get dirty. Second, he makes a case to keep it in. Third, he makes a lock for the case so that it will not be stolen by a thief.
"You, too, should be wrapped in purity so that you no longer wish to be stained by lust or desire.
"Instead, struggle cheerfully to remain by yourself, because dealings with evil men corrupt virtuous conduct.
"The lock represents the diligent custody of all your senses and inner faculties so that you guard against the devil's deception in all your actions.
"The key, however, is the Holy Ghost. He opens your heart, exactly as I please, for My glory and the benefit of men."
