Chapter 8 54 Sorrows are passed, and in the end is shewed the treasure of immortality.55 And therefore ask thou no more questions concerning the multitude of them that perish.56 For when they had taken liberty, they despised the most High, thought scorn of his law, and forsook his ways.57 Moreover they have trodden down his righteous,58 And said in their heart, that there is no God; yea, and that knowing they must die.59 For as the things aforesaid shalt receive you, so thirst and pain are prepared for them: for it was not his will that men should come to nought:60 But they which be created have defiled the name of him that made them, and were unthankful unto him which prepared life for them.61 And therefore is my judgment now at hand.62 These things have I not shewed unto all men, but unto thee, and a few like thee. Then answered I and said,63 Behold, O Lord, now hast thou shewed me the multitude of the wonders, which thou wilt begin to do in the last times: but at what time, thou hast not shewed me.

Chapter 9 1 He answered me then, and said, Measure thou the time diligently in itself: and when thou seest part of the signs past, which I have told thee before,2 Then shalt thou understand, that it is the very same time, wherein the Highest will begin to visit the world which he made.3 Therefore when there shall be seen earthquakes and uproars of the people in the world:4 Then shalt thou well understand, that the most High spake of those things from the days that were before thee, even from the beginning.5 For like as all that is made in the world hath a beginning and an end, and the end is manifest:6 Even so the times also of the Highest have plain beginnings in wonder and powerful works, and endings in effects and signs.7 And every one that shall be saved, and shall be able to escape by his works, and by faith, whereby ye have believed,8 Shall be preserved from the said perils, and shall see my salvation in my land, and within my borders: for I have sanctified them for me from the beginning.9 Then shall they be in pitiful case, which now have abused my ways: and they that have cast them away despitefully shall dwell in torments.10 For such as in their life have received benefits, and have not known me;11 And they that have loathed my law, while they had yet liberty, and, when as yet place of repentance was open unto them, understood not, but despised it;12 The same must know it after death by pain.13 And therefore be thou not curious how the ungodly shall be punished, and when: but enquire how the righteous shall be saved, whose the world is, and for whom the world is created.
