Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XXXII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXXII.—Abraham.

“In the twenty-first generation there was a certain wise man, of the race of those who were expelled, of the family of Noah’s eldest son, by name Abraham, from whom our Hebrew nation is derived. 554   When the whole world was again overspread with errors, and when for the hideousness of its crimes destruction was ready for it, this time not by water, but fire, and when already the scourge was hanging over the whole earth, beginning with Sodom, this man, by reason of his friendship with God, who was well pleased with him, obtained from God that the whole world should not equally perish.  From the first this same man, being an astrologer, was able, from the account and order of the stars, to recognise the Creator, while all others were in error, and understood that all things are regulated by His providence.  Whence also an angel, 555 standing by him in a vision, instructed him more fully concerning those things which he was beginning to perceive.  He showed him also what belonged to his race and posterity, and promised him that those districts should be restored rather than given to them.
