Sirach 38:1-8

Concerning Physicians and Health

38Honour physicians for their services,
   for the Lord created them;
2 for their gift of healing comes from the Most High,
   and they are rewarded by the king.
3 The skill of physicians makes them distinguished,
   and in the presence of the great they are admired.
4 The Lord created medicines out of the earth,
   and the sensible will not despise them.
5 Was not water made sweet with a tree
   in order that its* power might be known?
6 And he gave skill to human beings
   that he* might be glorified in his marvellous works.
7 By them the physician* heals and takes away pain;
8   the pharmacist makes a mixture from them.
God’s* works will never be finished;
   and from him health* spreads over all the earth.
