The fifteen tokens of Doomsday (Author: [unknown])


section 1

Hieronymus in Annalibus Hebraiorum, etc., that is, Jerome the prophet relates, as he found in the historical books of the Hebrews, the tokens of the fifteen days before Doom. And these are the tokens of the fifteenth day before Doom, to wit, all the seas and waters will rise1 from the face of the earth up to the clouds of heaven, fifteen cubits above the mountains, so that the cry of the seals, and the roar of the whales, the yelling and blowing of the red-mouthed sea-monsters will be on the dry strands after the water leaves them on that day.
