the Lord shall be as the melting fire that burn eth, and as the fire which causeth the waters  to boil.
8 O Lord, thou shalt come down to make  thy name known to thine adversaries, and all  nations shall tremble at thy presence. When  thou doeth terrible things, things they look  not for; yea, when thou comest down and  the mountains flow down at thy presence,  thou shalt meet him who rejoiceth and work eth righteousness, who remember thee in thy  ways: for since the beginning of the world  have not men heard nor perceived by the ear,  neither hath any eye seen, O God, besides  thee, how great things thou hast prepared for  him that waiteth for thee.
9 And it shall be said, who is this that com eth down from God in heaven with died gar ments: yea, from the regions which are not  known, clothed in his glorious apparel, trav eling in the greatness of his strength? And  he shall say I am he who spake in righteous ness, mighty to save. And the Lord shall be  red in his apparel, and his garments like him  that treadeth in the wine vat, and so great  shall be the glory of his presence, that the  sun shall hide his face in shame; and the moon  shall withhold its light; and the stars shall be  hurled from their places: and his voice shall  be heard, I have trodden the wine-press alone,  and have brought judgment upon all people;  and none was with me; and I have trampled  them in my fury, and I did tread upon them  in mine anger, and their blood have I sprink led upon my garments, and stained all my rai [p. 435]

When thou doeth terrible things, things they look not for; yea, when thou comest down and the mountains flow down at thy presence, thou shalt meet him who rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, who remember thee in thy ways: for since the beginning of the world have not men heard nor perceived by the ear, neither hath any eye seen, O God, besides thee, how great things thou hast prepared for him that waiteth for thee.
9 And it shall be said, who is this that cometh down from God in heaven with died garments: yea, from the regions which are not known, clothed in his glorious apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? And he shall say I am he who spake in righteousness, mighty to save. And the Lord shall be red in his apparel, and his garments like him that treadeth in the wine vat, and so great shall be the glory of his presence, that the sun shall hide his face in shame; and the moon shall withhold its light; and the stars shall be hurled from their places: and his voice shall be heard, I have trodden the wine-press alone, and have brought judgment upon all people; and none was with me; and I have trampled them in my fury, and I did tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained all my rai [p. 435]
