Behold, the heavens and the earth are; they proclaim that they were created; for they change and vary. Whereas whatsoever
hath not been made, and yet is, hath nothing in it, which before it had not; and this it is, to change and vary. They proclaim
also, that they made not themselves; “therefore we are, because we have been made; we were not therefore, before we were,
so as to make ourselves.” Now the evidence of the thing, is the voice of the speakers. Thou therefore, Lord, madest
them; who art beautiful, for they are beautiful; who art good, for they are good; who art, for they are; yet are they
not beautiful nor good, nor are they, as Thou their Creator art; compared with Whom, they are neither beautiful, nor good,
nor are. This we know, thanks be to Thee. And our knowledge, compared with Thy knowledge, is ignorance.
