Septuagint, Wisdom Of Solomon, 11.24-11.26


nanFor thou lovest all things that exist,and hast loathing for none of the things which thou hast made,for thou wouldst not have made anything if thou hadst hated it.


nanHow would anything have endured if thou hadst not willed it?Or how would anything not called forth by thee have been preserved?


nanThou sparest all things, for they are thine,O Lord who lovest the living.

In the first place, then, we must say this, that there is no existing being equal in honor to God, but there is one only ruler and governor and king, to whom alone it is granted to govern and to arrange the universe. For the verse-- A multitude of kings is never good, Let there one sovereign, one sole monarch be, is not more justly said with respect to cities and men than with respect to the world and to God; for it is clear from the necessity of things that there must be one creator, and one father, and one master of the one universe.
