Ecclesiasticus 17:1-14

17The 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.
8He set his eye upon their hearts, that he might shew them the greatness of his works.
9He gave them to glory in his marvellous acts for ever, that they might declare his works with understanding.
10And the elect shall praise his holy name.
11Beside this he gave them knowledge, and the law of life for an heritage.
12He made an everlasting covenant with them, and shewed them his judgments.
13Their eyes saw the majesty of his glory, and their ears heard his glorious voice.
14And he said unto them, Beware of all unrighteousness; and he gave every man commandment concerning his neighbour.
