Divine Wisdom Seen In Creation

Genesis 1
26 Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground.”

27 God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.

Sirach 16
22 Hearken to me, my son, take my advice, apply your mind to my words,

23 While I propose measured wisdom, and impart accurate knowledge.

24 When at the first God created his works and, as he made them, assigned their tasks,

25 He ordered for all time what they were to do and their domains from generation to generation. They were not to hunger, nor grow weary, nor ever cease from their tasks.

26 Not one should ever crowd its neighbor, nor should they ever disobey his word.

27 Then the LORD looked upon the earth, and filled it with his blessings.

28 Its surface he covered with all manner of life which must return into it again.

Sirach 17
1 The LORD from the earth created man, and in his own image he made him.

2 Limited days of life he gives him and makes him return to earth again.

3 He endows man with a strength of his own, and with power over all things else on earth.

4 He puts the fear of him in all flesh, and gives him rule over beasts and birds.

5 He forms men’s tongues and eyes and ears, and imparts to them an understanding heart.

6 With wisdom and knowledge he fills them; good and evil he shows them.

7 He looks with favor upon their hearts, and shows them his glorious works,

8 That they may describe the wonders of his deeds and praise his holy name.

9 He has set before them knowledge, a law of life as their inheritance;

10 An everlasting covenant he has made with them, his commandments he has revealed to them.

11 His majestic glory their eyes beheld, his glorious voice their ears heard.

12 He says to them, “Avoid all evil”; each of them he gives precepts about his fellow men.

13 Their ways are ever known to him, they cannot be hidden from his eyes.

14 Over every nation he places a ruler, but the LORD’S own portion is Israel.

15 All their actions are clear as the sun to him, his eyes are ever upon their ways.

16 Their wickedness cannot be hidden from him; all of their sins are before the LORD.

17 A man’s goodness God cherishes like a signet ring, a man’s virtue, like the apple of his eye.

18 Later he will rise up and repay them, and requite each one of them as they deserve.
