     Nobody lights a lamp and covers it with a basin.  No, a man puts his lamp on a lamp-stand.
     Who is Jesus talking about?  Clearly, not about us.  Because we don’t place a lamp on a lamp stand, but we do cover it with a basin.  As tightly as possible.  To cover, to crush, to put out.  Don’t let it shine, don’t let it burn, don’t let it light up the darkness.
     We, the jealous ones; because we do not glow, because the darkness persists within us.
