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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXIII.—“To Whom Much is Given.”

“For on thy account, O man, God commanded the water to retire upon the face of the earth, that the earth might be able to bring forth fruits for thee.  And He made water-courses, that He might provide for thee fountains, and that river-beds might be disclosed, that animals might teem forth; in a word, that He might furnish thee with all things.  For is it not for thee that the winds blow, and the rains fall, and the seasons change for the production of fruits?  Moreover, it is for thee that the sun and moon, with the other heavenly bodies, accomplish their risings and settings; and rivers and pools, with all fountains, serve thee.  Whence to thee, O senseless one, as the greater honour has been given, so for thee, ungrateful, the greater punishment by fire has been prepared, because thou wouldest not know Him whom it behoved thee before all things to know.
