Σελίδα 331 - I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger.

Σελίδα 215 - And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me ; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein ; and he spread it before me ; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
