Solomon’s Appeal For Divine Inspiration
15 May GOD grant me to speak as HE would wish and conceive thoughts worthy of the gifts I have received, since He is both guide to Wisdom and Director of sages;
16 for we are in His hand, yes, ourselves and our sayings,
and all intellectual and all practical knowledge
17 He it was who gave me sure knowledge of what exists,
to understand the structure of the world and the action of the elements.
18 the beginning, end and middle of the times, the alternation of the solstices and the succession of the seasons,
19 the cycles of the year and the position of the stars,
20 the nature of animals and the instincts of beasts, the powers of spirits and human mental processes, the varieties of plants and the medical properties of roots.
21 and now I understand everything, hidden or visible, for Wisdom, the designer of all things has instructed me.
GOD is an amazing teacher and guide. As HE had used His entire creation to teach Solomon, HE uses it to teach us also. Everything GOD created was created for the purpose of teaching us, about us, another aspect of His creation.
GOD, we thank you for teaching us about your Creation. It is through your creation we know about medicine, and through your animals, winged ones, and those that creep, we learn about human beings, and from the clouds, water, sky and earth we learn about death and rebirth, the heavens and hell. Bless you, for your love and generosity.
