It was their business to consult the oracle upon all occasions, and by its decisions to administer and regulate all the affairs of the State.

It may include natural faculty, for Christ's gifts usually follow the line of that; and the larger the nature, the more of Him it can contain. But it also includes spiritual receptiveness and faithfulness, ...
