Sirach Chapter 38: 1-15

"Honor a physician with the honor due unto him for the uses which ye may have of him: for the Lord hath created him.

For of the most High cometh healing...The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them...

For they shall also pray unto the Lord, that he would prosper that, which they give for ease and remedy to prolong life."
