1Again, one preparing himself to sail, and about to pass through the raging waves, calleth upon a piece of wood more rotten than the vessel that carrieth him. 2For verily desire of gain devised that, and the workman built it by his skill. 3But thy providence, O Father, governeth it: for thou hast made a way in the sea, and a safe path in the waves; 4Shewing that thou canst save from all danger: yea, though a man went to sea without art.5Nevertheless thou wouldest not that the works of thy wisdom should be idle, and therefore do men commit their lives to a small piece of wood, and passing the rough sea in a weak vessel are saved. 6For in the old time also, when the proud giants perished, the hope of the world governed by thy hand escaped in a weak vessel, and left to all ages a seed of generation. 7For blessed is the wood whereby righteousness cometh.
