Now, presumably speech is not predicated of God and humans in a univocal manner: God’s speech did not involve the use of vocal chords, for example, and until matter was created there could have been none of the vibrations we associate with physical sound. Yet by implication the Bible makes it clear that the closest analogy to God’s creative act is the human act of speech.
