53 Yea, and blessed are the dead that die in the  Lord from henceforth, when the Lord shall come  and old things shall pass away, and all things be come new, they shall rise from the dead and shall  not die, and shall receive an inheritance before the  Lord, in the holy city, and he that liveth when the  Lord shall come, and have kept the faith, blessed  is he;
54 Nevertheless it is appointed to him to die at  the age of man:
55 Wherefore children shall grow up until they  become old, old men shall die;
56 But they shall not sleep in the dust, but they  shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye:
57 Wherefore, for this cause preached the apos tles unto the world, the resurrection of the dead:
58 These things are the things that ye must look  for, and speaking after the manner of the Lord,  they are now nigh at hand;
59 And in a time to come, even in the day of the  coming of the Son of man, and until that hour,  there will be foolish virgins among the wise, and at  that hour cometh an entire separation of the right eous and the wicked;
60 And in that day will I send mine angels, to  pluck out the wicked, and cast them into unquench able fire.
61 And now behold, verily I say unto you, I the  Lord am not pleased with my servant , he  exalted himself in his heart, and received not coun sel, but grieved the Spirit:
62 Wherefore his writing is not acceptable unto  the Lord, and he shall make another; [p. 155]
