God spoke. That came second. It is not the beginning. It is already the audible fulfillment of the silent beginning. It is already the first miracle. The beginning is: God created.Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 112.
