Nature and Scripture as two witnesses

In his book Moses
described the creation of the natural world,
so that both Nature and Scripture
might bear witness to the Creator:
Nature, through man’s use of it,
Scripture, through his reading of it.
These are the witnesses
which reach everywhere,
they are to be found at all times,
present at every hour,
confuting the unbeliever
who defames the Creator.

St. Ephrem the Syrian, Hymn V on Paradise, 2
