|Source text - English|
Deus é relacionado ao Universo como criador e preservador: as leis com as quais ele criou todas as coisas são a maneira pela qual ele as preserva.
Ele age de acordo com essas regras, porque ele as conhece; ele as sabe, porque foi ele quem fez; e as fez porque elas estão de acordo com a sua sabedoria e poder.
|Translation - Portuguese|
"God is related to the universe as creator and preserver: the laws by which he created all things are those by which he preserves them. He acts according to these rules, because he knows them; he knows them, because he made them; and he made them,
because they are relative to his wisdom and power."
