But let us now pass to another sort of knowledge and doctrine. There are two ways of doctrine and authority, the one of light, and the other of darkness. But there is a great difference between these two ways. For over one are stationed the light-bringing angels of God, but over the other the angels 1685 of Satan. And He indeed (i.e., God) is Lord for ever and ever, but he (i.e., Satan) is prince of the time 1686 of iniquity.
Comp. 2 Cor. xii. 7.148:1686
Cod. Sin. reads, “of the present time of iniquity.”
