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

section 7

This is the token of the ninth day before Doom, to wit, a great sound, ugly, rough, terrific, will be heard from the heights of heaven, and many lightnings and vast thunder will come thereout, and a red, fiery cloud will rise from the southern part of the sky and spread over all the surface of the earth, and a rush of crimson blood, with a rough-waved fiery flame, will pour out of that cloud, so that it would fill the whole world, both sea and


land; and flames of flashing fire (will be) over the four parts of the globe, and a mighty earthquake on the whole world, and a vast spark will rise at every part of the earth, and the sea with its many thousands will go forth over its ramparts on that day.
