The servants of God praise him who hath delivered them from idolatry; condemning both the makers and the worshippers of idols.

[17] For being mortal himself, he formeth a dead thing with his wicked hands. For he is better than they whom he worshippeth, because he indeed hath lived, though he were mortal, but they never. [18] Moreover they worship also the vilest creatures: but things without sense compared to these, are worse than they. [19] Yea, neither by sight can any man see good of these beasts. But they have fled from the praise of God, and from his blessing.
