The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them.
Was not the water made sweet with wood, that the virtue thereof might be known?
And he hath given men skill, that he might be honoured in his marvellous works.
With such doth he heal and taketh away their pains.
Of such doth the apothecary make a confection; and of his works there is no end; and from him is peace over all the earth,
My son, in thy sickness be not negligent: but pray unto the Lord, and he will make thee whole.
Leave off from sin, and order thine hands aright, and cleanse thy heart from all wickedness.
Give a sweet savour, and a memorial of fine flour; and make a fat offering, as not being.
Then give place to the physician, for the Lord hath created him: let him not go from thee, for thou hast need of him.
There is a time when in their hands there is good success.
For they shall also pray unto the Lord, that he would prosper that, which they give for ease and remedy to prolong life.
