1The Lord created man of the earth, and turned him into it again. 2He gave them few days, and a short time, and power also over the things therein. 3He endued them with strength by themselves, and made them according to his image, 4And put the fear of man upon all flesh, and gave him dominion over beasts and fowls.5They received the use of the five operations of the Lord, and in the sixth place he imparted them understanding, and in the seventh speech, an interpreter of the cogitations thereof. 6Counsel, and a tongue, and eyes, ears, and a heart, gave he them to understand. 7Withal he filled them with the knowledge of understanding, and shewed them good and evil.
