Commentary

And what is the first written thought which has been handed down to us by the Providence of Almighty God? 'In the beginning God created

Of Creation
Heb. xi. 3.--"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."--Gen. i. 1.
