Translated by J. E. Ryland
A certain person inveighs against generation, calling it corruptible and destructive; and some one does violence [to Scripture], applying to pro-creation the Saviour's words, Lay not up treasure on earth, where moth and rust corrupt; and he is not ashamed to add to these the words of the prophet: You all shall grow old as a garment, and the moth shall devour you.
And, in like manner, they adduce the saying concerning the resurrection of the dead, The sons of that world neither marry nor are given in marriage.CLEM. ALEX.: iii. c. 12, § 86.
