Le texte est pétri de références bibliques, comme il se doit dans un tel exercice de style. Et Gilbert fait preuve d’élégance dans son choix de versets: il cite huit fois le Cantique des Cantiques. Ce n’est pas le fruit du hasard, car ces huit références forment plus de la moitié de la 22 Lettre 85, p. 120, écrite entre 1148 et 1153. 23 Lettre 21, p. 55–6.
