space of air through which wander the fowls of

the lights^ shining from above ; the euny to suffice for
the day^ the moon and the store to cheer the night;
and that, by all these, timee should be marked and
signified. Wo behold on all sides a moist element
replenished with fishes, beasts, and birds ; because
the grossness of the air, which bears up the flights
of burds, thickeneth itself by the exhalation of the
waters. We behold the &oe of the earth decked
out with earthly creatures; and many created after
Tliy image and likenessy even through Thy very
image and likenessy that is the power of reason and
understanding, set over all irrational creatures. And
as in his soul there is one power which has dominion
by directing, another made subject, that it might
obey; so was there for the man, corporeally also
made a woman, who, in the tnind of her reasonable
understanding, should have a parity of nature, but
in the box of her body, should be in like manner
subject to the sex of her husband, as the appetite of
doing is fidn to obtain the skill of right-doing, from
the reason of the mind. These things we behold,
and they are severally goody and taken altogether
very good.

XXXm. 48. Let Thy works praise Thee, that we
may love Thee; and let us love Thee, that Thy
works may praise Thee, which from time have be-
ginning and ending, rising and setting, growth and
decay, form and privation. They have then theur
succession of morning and evening, part secretly,
part apparently. For they were made of nothing by
Thee, not of Thee ; not of any matter not Thine, or that

VfBB before Thy oreative act, bat of matter conoreated
(that 18, a matter in which the matter and form were
dmaltaneonslj created hy Thee), becanae to its state
mthoui/orm^ Thoa without any interval of time didst
give form* For seeing the matter of heaven and
earth is one tiling, and the form another, Thou
madest the matter of merely nothing, bat the form
of the world out of the matter mthotU form : yet
both together, so that the form should follow the
matter, without any interval of delay.^

XXXIV. 49. We have also examined what Thou
wiUedst to be shadowed forth, whether by the crea-
tion, or the relation of things in sach an order;
and we have seen, that things singly are ffood^ and
together very goody in Thy Word, in Thy Only-
Begotten, both heaiven and earthy the head and the
body of the church, in Thy predestination before all
times, without morning and evening. But when
Thoa begannest to execute in time the things predes-
tinated, to the end 'thoa mightest reveal hidden
things, and rectify our disorders (for our sins hung
over us, and we had sunk into the dark deq>y and
Thy good J^rit was home over us, to help us in due
season)y Thou didst^tM^j^ tJie ungodlyy and divided^
them from the wicked ; and Thou madest the flrmor

placed tmder^ who were to be sabjeot to them ; and
thou gatheredest together the society of unbelievers
into one conspiracy) that the seal of the fiuthfiil might
appear, and they might bring forth works of mercy,
even diHtribating to the poor their earthly riches, to
obtam heavenly. And after this, didst Thoa kindle
certiun Ughte in the firmament^ Thy Holy ones hav-
ing the word of l^fe^ and shining with an eminent
authority set on high through spiritual gifts. After
this, again, for the initiation of the unbelieving Gen-
tiles, didst Thou, out of corporeal matter, produce
the Sacraments, and visible miracles, and forms of
words, according to the firmanient of Thy Book, by
which the fidthful should be Neesed and muUiplied
Next, didst Thou form the Uoing soul of the &ithfii],
through affections well ordered by the vigor of con*
tinency. After that hast Thou renewed the mind,
subjected to Thee alone and needuig to imitate no
human authority, qfter Thy image and likenesei and
didst subject its rational actions to the excellency of
the understanding, as the tooman to the man; and, to
all offices of Thy Ministry, necessary for the perfecting
of the &ithful in this life, Thou willedst, that, for
their temporal uses, good things, fruitful to them-
selves ill time to come, be given by the same faithful.
All tliese we see, and they are vert/ goodf because.
Thou secst them in us. Who hast given unto us Thy;
Spirit, by which we might see them, and in them
love Thee.

all thb moBt goodly array of things very goody haying
finished their coorses, is to pass away, for in them

XXXYI. 51. Bat the seventh day hath no even-
mg, nor hath it setting, because Thou hast sanctified
it to an everlasting oontinoance; that that which
Thoa didst <tfter T%y toorke which were very goody
namely, resting the seventh day (although Thop
madest them in unbroken rest), we, too, may do, —
Thy Book announdng beforehand unto us, that we
also, after our works {very good^ because Thou hast
given them to us), shall rest in Thee also, in the Sab*
bath of eternal life.

XXXVII. 62. For Thou shalt rest fai us, as now
Thou workest in us ; and Thy rest shall be through
us, as Thy works are through us. But Thou, Lord,
ever workest, and art ever at rest. Nor dost Thou
see in time,- nor art moved in time, nor rested in
time ; and yet Thou makest things seen in time, yea
the tfanes themselves, and the rest which results from
time.

XXxVilL 58. We therefore see these things
which Thou madest, because they are; but they are
because Thou seest them. And we see without, that
they are, and within, that they are good ; but Thou
sawest them when made, as Thou sawest them before
they were made. And we were at a later time moved
to do well, after our hearts had conceived of Thy
Spirit ; but in the former time we were moved to do
evil, forsaking Thee. But Thou, the One, the Good

Ghxl, didst never cease doing good. And we also
have some good worka^ of Thy gift, but not eternal ;
({fter them we trust to rest in Thy great haUomng.
Bat Tlioit, being the Good which noodcth no good,
art ever at rest, because Thy rest is Thyself. And
what man can teach man to understand this ? or what
angel an angel? or what angel a man? Let it be
asked of Thee, sought of Thee, hwcked for at Thee :
so, so shall it be received, so shall it be found, so shall
it be opened. Amen.
