AND AS ALL OF THE GIFTS of God are far greater than the mortal being, so too the Word--who is precise about the wisdom of all these things since he is with the God1. who arranges to write them, if the Father of the Word wishes--may arise in the soul which is utterly purifed with all respect and with awareness of the human weakness about the basis of wisdom. But if a person dedicates himself rashly, without comprehending what is esoteric of the wisdom of God and of the Word who is in the beginning with God2. and who is himself God, and that it is by means of the Word and God and by means of the wisdom with him that one must examine and discover these things, it must happen that he, by falling into myths and nonsense and fictions, submits himself to the danger which surrounds impiety. For that reason one needs to remember also the commandment from Solomon in Ecclesiastes concerning such things, which says, Do not hasten to express a word before the face of God. For God is in the heaven above, and you are on the earth below. Therefore let your words be few.3.
(2) And it is fitting that one believe that the holy Scriptures do not have one dot empty of the wisdom of God. For if he will enjoin a man like me saying, Do not appear before me empty,4. how much more will he himself say nothing empty. For the Prophets speak having received from his fullness.5.____________________
