without any fall since its first creation, cleaving close unto Thee, is placed beyond all the rolling vicissitude of times.
Yea, neither is this very formlessness of the earth, invisible, and without form, numbered among the days. For where no figure
nor order is, there does nothing come, or go; and where this is not, there plainly are no days, nor any vicissitude of spaces
