and the Dead Sea shall cast up fish; and one whom the many do not know shall make his voice heard by night, and all shall hear his voice.
There shall be chaos also in many places, fire shall often break out, the wild animals shall roam beyond their haunts, and menstruous women shall bring forth monsters.
Salt waters shall be found in the sweet, and all friends shall conquer one another; then shall reason hide itself, and wisdom shall withdraw into its chamber,
and it shall be sought by many but shall not be found, and unrighteousness and unrestraint shall increase on earth.
One country shall ask its neighbor, "Has righteousness, or anyone who does right, passed through you?' And it will answer, "No.'
