The foundation of this vast fabric is laid in an adequate cause - elohim, The Almighty. Nothing else would bear it. Man, if he attempt to find an adequate cause for what is, to the overlooking of God, shall but weary him self with very vanity.
The writer makes use of the plural term Elohim, which yet is joined to singular verbs. This has been generally thought to intimate the doctrine of a plurality in the unity of the Godhead. It is certain, the scriptures speak of the Son, and Holy Spirit, as concerned in creation, as well as the Father.+ Nor can I on any other supposition affix a consistent meaning to such language as that which after wards occurs Let us make man in our image, after our likeness - Behold, the man is become like one of us.
The account given by Moses relates not to the whole creation, but merely to what immediately concerns us to know. God made angels; but nothing is said of them. The moon is called one of the greater lights, not as to what it is in itself, but what it is to us. The scriptures are written not to gratify curiosity, but to nourish faith. They do not stop to tell you how, nor to answer a number of questions which might be asked; but tell you so much as is necessary, and no more.
