Chapter 5 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:9 And salt waters shall be found in the sweet, and all friends shall destroy one another; then shall wit hide itself, and understanding withdraw itself into his secret chamber,10 And shall be sought of many, and yet not be found: then shall unrighteousness and incontinency be multiplied upon earth.11 One land also shall ask another, and say, Is righteousness that maketh a man righteous gone through thee? And it shall say, No.12 At the same time shall men hope, but nothing obtain: they shall labour, but their ways shall not prosper.13 To shew thee such tokens I have leave; and if thou wilt pray again, and weep as now, and fast even days, thou shalt hear yet greater things.14 Then I awaked, and an extreme fearfulness went through all my body, and my mind was troubled, so that it fainted.15 So the angel that was come to talk with me held me, comforted me, and set me up upon my feet.16 And in the second night it came to pass, that Salathiel the captain of the people came unto me, saying, Where hast thou been? and why is thy countenance so heavy?17 Knowest thou not that Israel is committed unto thee in the land of their captivity?18 Up then, and eat bread, and forsake us not, as the shepherd that leaveth his flock in the hands of cruel wolves.19 Then said I unto him, Go thy ways from me, and come not nigh me. And he heard what I said, and went from me.20 And so I fasted seven days, mourning and weeping, like as Uriel the angel commanded me.21 And after seven days so it was, that the thoughts of my heart were very grievous unto me again,22 And my soul recovered the spirit of understanding, and I began to talk with the most High again,23 And said, O Lord that bearest rule, of every wood of the earth, and of all the trees thereof, thou hast chosen thee one only vine:24 And of all lands of the whole world thou hast chosen thee one pit: and of all the flowers thereof one lily:
