Chapter 9 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.14 Then answered I and said,15 I have said before, and now do speak, and will speak it also hereafter, that there be many more of them which perish, than of them which shall be saved:16 Like as a wave is greater than a drop.17 And he answered me, saying, Like as the field is, so is also the seed; as the flowers be, such are the colours also; such as the workman is, such also is the work; and as the husbandman ls himself, so is his husbandry also: for it was the time of the world.18 And now when I prepared the world, which was not yet made, even for them to dwell in that now live, no man spake against me.19 For then every one obeyed: but now the manners of them which are created in this world that is made are corrupted by a perpetual seed, and by a law which is unsearchable rid themselves.20 So I considered the world, and, behold, there was peril because of the devices that were come into it.21 And I saw, and spared it greatly, and have kept me a grape of the cluster, and a plant of a great people.22 Let the multitude perish then, which was born in vain; and let my grape be kept, and my plant; for with great labour have I made it perfect.23 Nevertheless, if thou wilt cease yet seven days more, (but thou shalt not fast in them,24 But go into a field of flowers, where no house is builded, and eat only the flowers of the field; taste no flesh, drink no wine, but eat flowers only;)
