Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol IX:
The Epistles of Clement.: Chapter IX

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter IX.—Examples of the Saints.

Wherefore, let us yield obedience to His excellent and glorious will; and imploring His mercy and loving-kindness, while we forsake all fruitless labours 4048 and strife, and envy, which leads to death, let us turn and have recourse to His compassions.  Let us p. 232 stedfastly contemplate those who have perfectly ministered to his excellent glory.  Let us take (for instance) Enoch, who, being found righteous in obedience, was translated, and death was never known to happen to him. 4049   Noah, being found faithful, preached regeneration to the world through his ministry; and the Lord saved by him the animals which, with one accord, entered into the ark.
