Ephrem The Syrian
Heaven, earth, fire, wind and water were created from nothing as Scripture bears witness, whereas the light, which came to be on the first day along with the rest of the things that came to be afterward, came to be from something…. Therefore those five created things were created from nothing, and everything else was made from those [five] things that came to be from nothing. Commentary on Genesis;
