And makest — Not infusing cruel appetites, but permitting them to act according to such appetite which was already in them. As the fishes — Of which the greater greedily devour the smaller. Creeping things — Which in the waters are food for the lesser fry; so the world, like the sea, is wholly oppression. No ruler — None to defend the weak, or restrain the mighty.
