God, you are with me and you can help me. You were with me when I was taken [into captivity], and you are with me now. You strengthen me. The God I serve is everywhere—in heaven and earth and the sea, but he is above them all, for all live in him: all were created by him, and by him only do they remain. I will worship only the true God; you will I carry in my heart; no one on earth shall be able to separate me from you.
Quirinius, fourth-century bishop of Siscia
