On Christian Doctrine In Four Books by St. Augustine

Chapter 3. Now look at some examples. The heretical pointingà

3. Now look at some examples. The heretical pointing, |In principio erat verbum, et verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat| (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was), so as to make the next sentence run, |Verbum hoc erat in principio apud Deum| (This word was in the beginning with God), arises out of unwillingness to confess that the Word was God. But this must be rejected by the rule of faith, which, in reference to the equality of the Trinity, directs us to say: |et Deus erat verbum| (and the Word was God); and then to add: |hoc erat in principio apud Deum| (the same was in the beginning with God).
