"In verbo veritatis" (2 Cor 6:7)

Come, listen, and I will tell…

Come, listen, and I will tell, all you who fear God (Ps 65[66]: 16). Let us come, let us listen to what he is going to tell…. Who are to come and listen? All you who fear God. If you do not fear God, I will not tell it, because where there is no fear of God, there is no one to tell it to. Let fear of God open your ears so that there may be a way for something of what I am to tell you to enter. And what is he going to tell? What great things he has done for my soul. OK, so he wants to tell something, but what is he going to tell? Perhaps how wide the earth is, how far the sky extends, how many stars there are, and the changes of sun and moon? All those creatures pursue their own order, while those who most devote themselves to investigating them do not know their Creator (see Wis 13:9). But listen to this, take this in, you who fear the Lord: What great things he has done for my soul!–and, if you wish, for your soul, too. (Augustine, EnPs 65[66], 21; PL 36, 799)
