Christ, lines 1312-1413

Alas! We are now able to see the sins in ourselves and are ashamed before all the inhabitants of the world. We must use the eyes of our hearts to inspect our own souls so that God will allow us into heaven.

God will speak first to the blessed.

“Now receive the kingdom which was made for you. You have merited it by doing what you were commanded and were charitable. You will be rewarded.”

But to the evil ones on his left hand, God will speak differently.

“I made you and gave you a soul and other powers and set you in paradise. But you listened to the devil and not to me. So you were cast out of paradise and has to suffer.”
