Howbeit, when he had built the church we have mentioned, a serious illness attacked him therein from one Saturday to another, as the Book of his own Life relates; and from evening to cockcrow he was taken out of his body, and he heard the chanting of the angels of heaven, and he beheld them before him. And this is what they were chanting: Ibunt sancti de uirtute in uirtutem
[Ps. 83, 8]i. e. the saints shall advance from virtue to virtue, And this also they were saying: Videbitur Deus deorum in Sion
[Ps. 83, 8]the God of gods will be seen on Mount Zion.
