Certainly, we live, move, and exist because of him. As some of your poets have said, 'We are God's children.' 29

"God overlooked the times when people didn't know any better. But now he commands everyone everywhere to turn to him and change the way they think and act. 31

With them were Dionysius, who was a member of the court, and a woman named Damaris, and some other people.
