Hesiod, The Homeric Hymns, And Homerica (1920)
Verily, that he might declare liimMf to be righteous in punishing the ungodly, as he is merciful in rewarding the godly. No man can blame him there- fore, but rather magnify his righteousness. He compelleth them not to sin, for which they are damned. Should God, because he foresaw they would be evil, abstain from creating them, which is good? Is it not lawful for him to do what Matt. Are their eyes evil because ho is good? Should he not do well in making them, because they would do ill in offending him? Of this thing seek a further wisd. But let us return from whence we are strayed, albeit these questions are annexed unto our purpose.
Bo- days thing was, what could there ba to make them of, except he would have made them of himself? Jesus, the son Ecdus.
Afterward God, of this heap, in six days, shapeth all things- So that both be true, that God made the world in six days, and that he made all things together. This article of creation is necessary to be known ; forasmuch as some deny God to be the maker of the world, and giveth the glory thereof to angels; as the Menandrians, Saturnians, Cerinthians, and also the Nicolaitans ; and it is the first article of our creed.

He sent darkness amongst the Egyptians; he turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish. He brought them forth of the house of bondage and slavery with silver and gold. He rebuked the sea, and dried it up, and he led them through the deep as in the wilder- ness. He spread out a cloud to be a covering, and fire to give light in the night season.
At their desires came quails, and he filled them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out, so that rivers came into the wilderness. He dried up the waters of Jordan, that the people might pass over. He overthrew the walls of Jericho, and made the sun to stand still, and the day was lengthened. He slew mighty kings, Sehon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Basan, and gave away their land for an heritage.

Of which scriptures it doth consequently follow, that he governeth the world by his providence, and not by the wheel of fortune, or by force of destiny. But some do say, that he governed the Israelites, the seed of Abraham, the chosen generation; but not the re- sidue of the earth, which he gave up to their own govern- ance.
V erily God ruled all, as he is Lord of all. Or who maketh a way for the stormy weather, that it watereth and moist- ureth the dry and barren ground, to make grass grow where nobody dwelleth? Or who hath begotten the drops of our dew? Out of whose womb came the ice?

God woxdd ho their castle, and east all othfif things tipon them, or else ho is untrue of his promis '. One being demanded, how a king might ndo safely and assun-dly, an- swered : If he devise good laws, and seo them xliligently practised. And a king ought to ho a father to his subjects; not only to tho gentlomon, but rather to his poor commons, for they have more neetl : ho is tluj hoatl of them as well as of the other. What oauseth npniani aaid insurrections sooner than oppression of the poor?
For if kingdoms bo translated for unriglitiiousiHws, they aro pre. C Tliia passage was added in tibe odlttoa of XW. Now I think, that there was never more godly pretence, more outward shew of holinesSj more dissimulation in rulers, than now is ; and this is hy- pocrisy; and all the people be like the rulers, I warrant you.
I would wish that all kings would diligently read Over, and earnestly believe, the Chronicle of the kings. Is God of less ability now to do these things, than he was? But to the matter again: if he do not govern the world ' by his providence, it is either because he cannot and he is not able, or that he will not, or that he is ignorant what is done here. But there is no ignorance with him, to whom all things be naked and manifest ; and he lacketh no cun-' ning, for he is almighty, and nothing is impossible to him; and he lacketh no will, for he is full of goodness, mercy and compassion, aad promiseth plenty of all good things to the godly, and scarcity to the evil.
Wherefore he ruleth all by his providence. I put case, thou knewest not wherefore he ordained many things ; as thou art ignorant why he formed thee a man, and not a woman ; an EnglMiman, and no Italian ; were that a just cause deny his providence?
Were it not a like thing, as if thou shouldest deny that I would be at London at the be- ginning of Michaelmas term, because thou knowest not my smt? And do we think, that God governeth the world, the which comprehendeth both the dial and the globe, and the makers of both, by luck and fortune? Towns, cities, kingdoms, empires, be governed by counsel ; much more the whole. But who is able to be mayor or constable thereof, but the high- est? Therefore it is only ruled of him. Why was Regulus tormented of the Carthaginians?
