No word is more suitable to explain what human wisdom is than the one that expressly denotes worship of God. You ask me to speak briefly about great matters. Do you wish me to find an even conciser expression than this? Perhaps this is exactly what you wish me to explain briefly and to sum up in a few words: how God is worshiped.
