Chapter 4 38 Then answered I and said, O Lord that bearest rule, even we all are full of impiety.39 And for our sakes peradventure it is that the floors of the righteous are not filled, because of the sins of them that dwell upon the earth.40 So he answered me, and said, Go thy way to a woman with child, and ask of her when she hath fulfilled her nine months, if her womb may keep the birth any longer within her.41 Then said I, No, Lord, that can she not. And he said unto me, In the grave the chambers of souls are like the womb of a woman:42 For like as a woman that travaileth maketh haste to escape the necessity of the travail: even so do these places haste to deliver those things that are committed unto them.43 From the beginning, look, what thou desirest to see, it shall be shewed thee.44 Then answered I and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, and if it be possible, and if I be meet therefore,45 Shew me then whether there be more to come than is past, or more past than is to come.46 What is past I know, but what is for to come I know not.47 And he said unto me, Stand up upon the right side, and I shall expound the similitude unto thee.48 So I stood, and saw, and, behold, an hot burning oven passed by before me: and it happened that when the flame was gone by I looked, and, behold, the smoke remained still.49 After this there passed by before me a watery cloud, and sent down much rain with a storm; and when the stormy rain was past, the drops remained still.50 Then said he unto me, Consider with thyself; as the rain is more than the drops, and as the fire is greater than the smoke; but the drops and the smoke remain behind: so the quantity which is past did more exceed.51 Then I prayed, and said, May I live, thinkest thou, until that time? or what shall happen in those days?52 He answered me, and said, As for the tokens whereof thou askest me, I may tell thee of them in part: but as touching thy life, I am not sent to shew thee; for I do not know it.

Chapter 5 1 Nevertheless as coming the tokens, behold, the days shall come, that they which dwell upon earth shall be taken in a great number, and the way of truth shall be hidden, and the land shall be barren of faith.2 But iniquity shall be increased above that which now thou seest, or that thou hast heard long ago.3 And the land, that thou seest now to have root, shalt thou see wasted suddenly.4 But if the most High grant thee to live, thou shalt see after the third trumpet that the sun shall suddenly shine again in the night, and the moon thrice in the day:5 And blood shall drop out of wood, and the stone shall give his voice, and the people shall be troubled:6 And even he shall rule, whom they look not for that dwell upon the earth, and the fowls shall take their flight away together:7 And the Sodomitish sea shall cast out fish, and make a noise in the night, which many have not known: but they shall all hear the voice thereof.8 There shall be a confusion also in many places, and the fire shall be oft sent out again, and the wild beasts shall change their places, and menstruous women shall bring forth monsters:
