THE PROVERBS Chpt 30
*The prophecy of a true and faithful man, whom God hath helped, whom God had comforted and nourished.
For though I a least of all, and have no mans understanding ( for I never learned wisdom) yet have I understanding, and am well informed in Godly things. Who hath climbed up into heaven? Who hath come down from thence? Who hath holden the wind fast in his hands? Who hath comprehended the waters in a garment? Who hath set all the ends of the world? What is his name, or what is his sons name? Canest thou tell? All the words of God are pure and clean, for he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Put thou nothing unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Two things I require of thee, that thou will not deny me before I die. Remove from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches, only grant me a necessary living. Lest I be so full, I deny thee, and say: What fellow is the Lord? And lest I being constrained through poverty, fall unto stealing, and foreswear the name of my God. Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he speak evil of thee also, and thou be hurt. He that bringeth up an evil report upon the generation of his father and mother, is not worthy to be commended.
The generation that think themselves clean, shall not be cleansed from their filthiness. There are people that have a proud look, and cast up their eyelids. This peoples teeth are swords, and their chaft bones they consume and devour the simple of the earth, and the poor from among men.
This generation which is like an horseleach, hath two daughters: the one is called fetch hither, and the other bring hither.
There are three things that are never satisfied, and the fourth sayeth never hoo. The hell, a womans womb, and the earth hath never water enough. As for fire, it sayeth never, *hoo. Whoso laugheth his father to scorn, and setteth his mothers commandment to naught: the ravens pick out his eyes in the valley, and devoured be he of the young eagles.
There be three things too high for me, and as for the fourth, it passeth my knowledge. The way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent over a stone, the way of a ship in sea, and the way of a man with a young woman. Such is the way of an wife that breaketh wedlock, which wipeth her mouth like as when she hath eaten, and saith. As for me, I have done no harm. Through three things the earth is disquieted, and the fourth may it not bear: Through a servant that beareth rule, through a fool that hath great riches, through an idle housewife, and through an handmaiden that is heir to her mistress.
There be four things in the earth, the which are very little: but in wisdom they exceed the wise. The *Emmettes are but a weak people, yet gather they their meat in the harvest. The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their couches among the rocks. The grasshoppers have not a guide, yet go they forth together by heaps. The spider laboreth with her hands, and that in the Kings palace.
There be three things that go stiffly, but the going of the fourth is the godliest of all. A Lion which is King of beasts, and giveth place to no man: A cock ready to fight: A ram and a King that goeth forth with his people. If thou be so foolish to imagine thyself, or meddlest with any such thing, then lay thine hand upon thy mouth. Who so churneth milk, maketh butter: he that rubbeth his nose, maketh it bleed: and he that causeth wrath, bringeth forth strife

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 30
Woe be unto those shrinking children ( saith the Lord ) which seek counsel, but not at me: which take a web in hand, but not after my will: that they may heap one sin upon another. They go down into Egypt, ( and ask me no counsel ) to seek help at the power of Pharaoh, and comfort in the shadow of the Egyptians. But Pharaohs help shall be your confusion, and the comfort in the Egyptians shadow shall be your own shame. Your rulers have been at Zoan, and your messengers came unto Hanes. But ye shall all be ashamed of the people that may not help you, which shall not bring you strength or comfort, but shame and confusion.
Your beasts have born burdens upon their backs toward the South, through the way that is full of peril and trouble, because of the lion and lions, of the Cockatrice and shutting dragon. Yee the Mules bear your substance, and the Camels brought your treasure upon their crooked backs, unto a people that can not help you. For the Egyptians help shall be but vain and lost. Therefore I told you also that your pride should have an end. Wherefore go hence and write them this in their tables, a note in a book: that it may remain by their posterity, and be still kept. For it is an obstinate people, unfaithful children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord.
They dare say to the Prophets: *Intromit yourselves with nothing, and unto the Soothsayers: tell us nothing for to come, but speak friendly words unto us, and preach us false things. Tread out of the way, go out of the path, turn the holy one of Israel from us. Therefore thus saith the holy one of Israel: In so much as ye have cast off your beauty, and comforted yourselves with power and nimbleness, and put your confidence therin: therefore shall ye have this mischief again for your destruction and fall, like as an high wall, that falleth because of some rift ( or blast ) whose breaking cometh suddenly.
And your destruction shall be like as an earthen pot, which breaketh no man touching it, yee and breaketh so sore, that a man shall not find a *shever of it to fetch fire in, or to take water withal out of the pit. For the Lord God, even the holy one of Israel hath promised this: With still sitting and rest shall ye be healed, in quietness and hope shall your strength lie. Notwithstanding ye regard it not, but ye will say: No, for thus we are constrained to flee upon horses. And therefore shall ye flee, we must ride upon swift beasts, and therefore your persecutors shall yet be swifter. A thousand of you shall flee for one, or at the most for five, which do but only give you evil words: until ye be desolate, as a ship mast upon an high mountain, and as a beacon on a high hill.
Yet standeth the Lord waiting, that he may have mercy upon you, and lifteth himself up, that he may receive you to grace. For the Lord God is righteous. Happy are all they that wait for him. For thus ( O thou people of Sion and ye citizens of Jerusalem ) shall ye never be in heaviness, for doubtless he will have mercy upon thee. As soon as he heareth the voice of thy cry, he will help thee. The Lord giveth you the bread of adversity, and the water of trouble. But thine instructor flyeth not far from thee, if thine eyes look unto thine instructor, and thine ears harken to his word, that cryeth after thee and sayeth: this is the way, go this, and turn neither to the right hand nor to the left.
Moreover, if ye destroy the silver works of your Idols, and cast away the golden *coapes that deck them withal ( as filthiness ) and say get you hence: Then well he give rain to the seed, that ye shall sow in the earth, and give you bread of the increase of the earth, so that all shall be plenteous and abundant. Thy cattle also shall he feed in the broad meadows, yee thine oxen and Mules that till the ground, shall eat good fodder, which is purged with the fan. Goodly rivers shall flow out of all his mountains and hills. In the day of the great slaughter when the towers shall fall, the moon shall shine as the sun, and the sunshine shall be seven fold, and have as much shine, as in seven days beside.
In that day shall the Lord bind up the bruised sores of his people, and heal their wounds. Behold, the glory of the Lord shall come from far, his face shall burn, that no man shall be able to abide it, his lips shall wag for very indignation, and his tongue shall be as a consuming fire. His breath like a vehement flood of water, which goeth up to the throat. That he may take away the people, which have turned themselves to vanity, and the bridle of error, that lieth in other folks *chawes.
But ye shall sing, as the use is in the night of the holy *solempnite. Ye shall rejoice from your heart, as they that come with the pipe, when they go up to the mount of the Lord, unto the rock of Israel. The Lord also shall set up the power of his voice, and declare his terrible arm, with his angry countenance, yee and the flame of the consuming fire, with earthquake, tempest of wind, and hailstones. Then shall the Assyrians fear also because of the voice of the Lord, which shall smite him with the rod. And the same rod which the Lord will send upon him, shall move the whole foundation: with trumpet, with noise of war and battle to destroy. For he hath prepared the fire of pain since the beginning, yee even for Kings also. This hath he made deep and wide, the nourishing thereof is fire and wood innumerable, which the breath of the Lord kindleth, as it were a match of brimstone

Therefore woe be unto thee ( O robber ) shalt thou not be robbed also? and unto thee that layest wait, as who say there should no wait be laid for thee: Woe unto thee which doest hurt, even so shall thou be hurt also. And as thou layest wait, so shall wait be laid for thee also.
Lord be merciful unto us, we wait for thee. *Thine arm is at a point to visit us, but be thou our health in time of trouble. Grant that the people may flee at the anger of thy voice, and that at thine upstanding of the Gentiles may be scattered abroad, and that their people may be gathered, as the grasshoppers are commonly gathered together in a pit. Stand up Lord, thou that dwelleth on high: Let Sion be filled with equity and righteousness. Let truth and faithfulness be in her time: power, health, wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God are her treasure. Behold, their angels cry without, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. The streets are waste, there walketh no man therin, the appointment is broken, the cities are dispised, they are not regarded, the desolate earth is in heaviness. Libanus taketh it but for a sport, that it is hewn down: Saron is like a wilderness: and Basan and Carmel are turned upside down. *And therefore saith the Lord. I will up, now will I get up, now will I arise. Ye shall conceive stubble, and bare straw, and your spirit shall be the fire, that it may consume you: and the people shall be burnt like lime, and as thorns burn that are hewn off, and cast in the fire.
Now hearken to, ye that are far off of how I do with them, and consider my glory, ye that be at hand. The sinners at Sion are afraid and sudden fearfulness is come upon the hypocrites. What is he among us ( say they ) that will dwell by that consuming fire? Which of us may abide that everlasting heat? He that leadeth a godly life ( say I ) and speaketh the truth: He that abhoreth to do violence and deceit: he that keepeth his hand that toucheth no reward: which stoppeth his ears, that he hear no counsel against the innocent: which holdeth down his eyes, that he see none evil. He it is, that shall dwell on high whose saverguard shall be in the true rock, to him shall be given the right true meat and drink. His eyes shall see the king in his glory: and in the wide world, and his heart shall delight in the fear of God. What shall then become of the scribe? of the Senator? what of him that teacheth children? There shalt thou not see a people of a strange tongue to have so diffused a language, that it may not be understood: neither so strange a speach but it shall be perceived.
There shall Sion be seen, the head city of our solemn feasts. There shall thine eyes see Jerusalem that glorious habitation: the tabernacle that never shall remove, whose nails shall never be taken out world without end, whose *coardes *everychone shall never corrupt: for the glorious Majesty of the Lord shall there be present among us. In that place, where fair broad rivers and streams are shall neither Galley row, ner great ship sail. For the Lord shall be our captain, the Lord shall be our law giver. The Lord shall be our king, and he himself shall be our Saviour. There are the *coards so layed abroad, that they can not be better: The mast set up of such a fashion, that no banner nor sail hangeth theron: but there is dealed great spoil, yee lame men run after the prey, There lieth no man that sayeth: I am sick, but all evil is taken away from the people, that dwell there

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
And it happened when the Lion spake, these words unto the Eagle, I saw, and behold, the head that afore had the upper hand, appeared no more: neither did the four wings appear any more, that came to him, and were set up to reign: and their kingdom was small and full of uproar. And I saw, and behold, they appeared no more, and the whole body of the Eagle was burnt, and the earth was in great fear. Then awakened I out of the trance of my mind, and from great fear, and said unto my spirit: Lo, this hast thou given me, in that thou searchest out the ways of the Highest: lo, yet I am weary in my mind, and very weak in my spirit, and little strength is there in me, for the great fear that I received this night. Therefore will I now beseech the Highest, that he will comfort me unto the end: And I said, Lord, Lord, if I have before thy sight, and if I am justified with thee before many other, and if my prayer be come up before thy face, comfort me then, and show me thy servant the interpretation and plain difference of this horrible sight, that thou mayest perfectly comfort my soul: for thou hast judged me worthy, to show me the last of times.
And he said unto me: this is the interpretation of this sight. The Eagle whom thou saw sawest come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother Daniel, but it was not expounded unto him, for now I declare it unto thee. Behold, the days come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon the earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it. In the same kingdom shall twelve kings reign, one after the other. For the second shall begin to reign, and shall have more time than the other, and this do the twelve wings signify, which thou sawest. As for the voice that spake, and that thou sawest go out from the heads but not from the body, it be tokeneth, that after the time of that kingdom there shall arise great strivings, and it shall stand in peril of falling: nevertheless it shall not yet fall, but shall be set in to his beginning. And the eight under wings which thou sawest hang unto the wings of him, betoken, that in him there shall arise eight kings, whose time shall be small, and their years swift, and two of them shall bear. But when the midst time cometh, there shall be four kept in that time, when his time begineth to come that it may be ended, but two shall be kept unto the end.
And where as thou sawest three heads resting, this is the interpretation: In his last shall the Highest raise up three kingdoms, and call many again into them, and they shall have the dominion of the earth, and of those that dwell therein, with much labor above all those that were before them. Therefore are they called the heads of the Eagle: for it is they that shall bring forth his wickedness again, and that shall perform and finish his last. And where as thou sawest, that the great head appeared no more, it signifieth, that one of them shall die upon his bed, and yet with pain, for the two that remain, shall be slain with the sword. For the sword of the one shall devour the other, but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself.
And where as thou sawest two underwings upon the head that is on the right side, it signifieth that it is they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is a small kingdom, full of trouble. The Lion whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking unto the Eagle, and rebuking him for his unrighteousness, is the wind, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and rent them asunder before them. For he shall set them living before the judgement, and shall rebuke them: for the residue of my people shall he deliver with trouble, those that be preserved over mine ends: and he shall make them joyful until the coming day of Judgement, where of I have spoken unto thee from the beginning. This is the dream that thou sawest, and this is the interpretation. Thou only hast been mete to know the secret of the Highest.
Therefore write all these things that thou hast seen in a book, and hide them, and teach them the wise in the people, whos hearts thou knowest may comprehend and keep these secrets. But wait thou here thyself yet seven days more, that it may be showed the , whatsoever pleaseth the Highest to declare unto thee, and with that he went his way.
And when all the people perceived, that the seven days were past, And I come again into the city, they gathered them all together from the least to the most, and came unto me, and said: what have we offended thee? and what evil have we done against thee, that thou forsake us, and sitteth here in this place? For of all the people thou only are left us, as a grape of the vine, and as a candle in a dark place, and as a haven a ship preserved from the tempest. Have we not adversity enough, but thou must forsake us? Were it not better for us, that we had been burnt with Sion? For we are no better, then they that died there: and they wept with loud voice. Then answered I them and said: Be of good comfort O' Israel, be not heavy thou house of Jacob: for the Highest hath you in remembrance, and the Mighty hath not forgotten you in temptation. As for me, I have not forsaken you, neither am I departed from you: but am come into this place to pray, because of the misery of Israel, that I might seek mercy for the low estate of your Sanctuary. And now go your way home every man, and after these days will I come unto you. So the people went their way into the city, like as I commanded them: but I remained in the field seven days, as the Angel bade me: and I ate only of the flowers of the field, and had my meat of the herbs in those days
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 5
Then shall the righteous stand in great steadfastness against such as have dealt extremely with them, and taken away their labors. When they see it, they shall be vexed with horrible fear, and shall wonder at the hastiness of the sudden health: groaning for the very distress of the mind, and shall say within themselves, having inward sorrow, and mourning for very anguish of mind:
These are they, whom we sometime had in derision, and jested upon. We fools thought their life was very madness, and their end to be without honour. But lo, how they are counted among the children of God, and their portion is among the saints. Therefore have we erred from the way of truth, the light of righteousness hath not shined unto us, and the sun of understanding rose not up upon us. We have wearied ourselves in the way of wickedness and destruction. Tedious ways have we gone: but as for the way of the Lord, we have not known it.
What good hath our pride done unto us? Or, what profit hath the pomp of riches brought us? All those things are passed away like a shadow, and as a messenger running before: As a ship that passeth over the waves of the water, which when it is gone by, the trace thereof cannot be found, neither the path of it in the floods. Or as a bird that flyeth through the air, and no man can see any token where she is flown, but only heareth the noise of her wings, beating the light wind, parting the air through the vehemence of her going, and flyeth on shaking her wings, where as afterward no token of her way can be found. Or like as when an arrow is shot at a mark, it parteth the air, which immediately cometh together again, so that a no man can know where it went through. Even so we in like manner, as soon as we were born, began immediately to draw to our end, and have showed no token of virtue, but are consumed in our own wickedness.
Such words shall they that have sinned speak in hell: For the hope of the ungodly is like a dry thistle flower ( or dust ) that is blown away with the wind: like as thin scum that is scattered abroad with the storm: like as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with the wind, and as the remembrance of a stranger that tarryeth for a day, and then departeth. But the righteous shall live for evermore: their reward also is with the Lord: and their remembrance with the Highest. Therefore shall they receive a glorious Kingdom and a beautiful crown of the Lords hand: for with his right hand shall he cover them, and with his own arm shall he cover them, and with his own arm shall he defend them. His jealousy also shall take away the harness, and he shall weapon the creature to be avenged of the enemies. He shall put unrighteousness as a breastplate, and take sure judgment instead of an helmet. The invincible shield of equity shall he take, his cruel wrath shall he sharpen for a spear, and the whole compass of the world shall fight with him against the unwise.
Then shall the thunder bolts go out of the lightnings, and come out of the rainbow of the clouds to the place appointed: out of the hard and stony indignation there shall fall thick hails, and the water of the sea shall be wroth against them, and the floods shall run roughly together. Yee a mighty wind shall stand up against them, and a storm shall scatter them abroad. Thus the unrighteous dealing of them shall bring all the land to a wilderness, and wickedness shall over throw the dwellings of the mighty
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 6
When Jesus perceived that they would come, and take him up, to make him king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
And when evening was come his disciples went unto the sea and entered into a ship and went over the sea unto Capernaum. And *anon it was dark, and Jesus was not come to them. And the sea arose with a great wind that blew. And when they had rowed about a twenty five or a thirty furlongs, they saw Jesus walk on the sea, and draw nigh unto the ship, and they were afraid. And he said unto them: It is I, be not afraid. Then would they have received him into the ship, and the ship was by and by at the land whither they went.
The day following, the people which stood on the other side of the sea, saw that there was none other ship there, save that one wherein his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not in with his disciples into the ship: but that his disciples were gone away alone. How be it, there came other ships from Tiberias nigh unto the place, where they ate bread, when the Lord had blessed. Then when the people saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping and came to Capernaum seeking for Jesus.
And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him: Rabbi, when camest thou hither? Jesus answered them and said: verily, verily I say unto you: ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles: but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled. Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for the meat that endureth unto everlasting life, which meat the son of man shall give unto you. For him hath God the father sealed.
Then said they unto him: what shall we do that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them. This is the work of God, that ye believe on him, whom he hath sent. They said unto him: what sign showest thou then, that we may see and believe thee? What dost thou work? Our fathers did eat Manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Jesus said unto them: verily, verily I say unto you: Moses gave you not bread from heaven: but my father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven and giveth life unto the world.
Then said they unto him: Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them: I am that bread of life. He that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you: that ye have seen me, and yet believe not. All that the father giveth me shall come to me: and him that cometh to me, I cast not away. For I came down from heaven: not to do mine own will, but his will which hath sent me. And this is the fathers will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me, I should lose nothing: but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me: that every man which seeth the son and believeth on him, have everlasting life. And I will raise him up at the last day. The Jewes then murmured at him, because he said: I am that bread which is come down from heaven. And they said: Is not this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that he sayeth, I came down from heaven? Jesus answered and said unto them. Murmur not between yourselves. No man can come to me except the father which hath sent me, draw him. And I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets, that they shall all be taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard and hath learned of the father cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the father, save he which is of God, the same hath seen the father.
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat Manna in the wilderness and are dead? This is that bread which cometh from heaven that he which eateth of it, should also not die. I am that living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever. And the bread that I will give, is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
And the Jewes strove among themselves saying: How can this fellow give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the son of man, and drink his blood, ye shall not have life in you. Whosoever eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me and I in him. As the living father hath sent me, even so live I by my father: and he that eateth me shall live by me. This is the bread which came from heaven: not as your fathers have eaten Manna and are dead. He that eateth of this bread, shall live ever.
These things said he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples: when they had heard this, said: this is an hard saying: who can abide the hearing of it? Jesus knew in himself, that his disciples murmured at it, and said unto them: Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I speak unto you, are spirit and life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, which they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said: Therefore said I unto you: that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my father.
From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus to the twelve: will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered: Master to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life, and we believe and know that thou art Christ the son of the living God. Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve, and yet one of you is the devil? He spake it of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon. For he it was that should betray him, and was one of the twelve

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 8
And he entered into a ship, and his Disciples followed him. And behold there arose a great tempest in the sea, in so much that the ship was covered with waves, and he was asleep. And his Disciples came to him, and awoke him saying: Master save us, we perish. And he said unto them: why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there followed a great calm. And the men marvelled and said: what man is this, that both winds and sea obey him?
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18
And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
And the apples that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee. And all things which were dainty, and had in price are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more. The merchants of these things which were waxed rich, shall stand afar off from her, for fear of the punishment of her, weeping and wailing, and saying: Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in raynes, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stone, and pearls: for at one hour so great riches is come to nought.
And every ship governor, and all they that occupied ships, and shipmen which work in the sea, stood afar off, and cried, when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying: what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping, and wailing, and said: Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by the reason of her costliness, for at one hour is she made desolate.
Rejoice over her thou heaven, and ye holy Apostles and Prophets: for God hath given your judgement on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: with such violence shall that great city Babylon be cast, and shall be found no more. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more in thee: and no crafts man, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee. And the sound of a mill shall be heard no more in thee, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride, shall be heard no more in thee, for thy merchants were the great men of the earth. And with thine enchantment were deceived all nations: and in her was found the blood of the Prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth
