I have come to know that everything that the true God makes, it will prove to be to time indefinite. To it there is nothing to add and from it there is nothing to subtract; but the true God himself has made it, that people may be afraid on account of him.
Go, eat your food with rejoicing and drink your wine with a good heart, because already the true God has found pleasure in your works.
And wine that makes the heart of mortal man rejoice, To make the face shine with oil, And bread that sustains the very heart of mortal man.
Do not drink water any longer, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent cases of sickness.
