Wherefore come ye unto it With him that cometh  I will reason as with man of old in days of old And  I will shew unto you my strong reasoning Wherefore hearken  ye together & let me shew it unto you even my wisdom  the wisdom of him whom ye say is the God of Enoch &  his Brethren who were seperated from the Earth & were  reserved unto myself a City reserved untill a day of  righteousness shall come a day which was sought for by  all Holy men & they found it not Because of wickedness  & abominations & confessed that they were strangers &  pilgrims on the Earth but obtained a promise that  they should find it & see it in their flesh wherefore  hearken & I will reason with you & I will speak  unto you & prophecy as unto men in days of old & I  will shew it plainly as I shewed it unto my Deciples  as I stood before them in the flesh & spake unto them  saying <as> ye have asked of me concerning these signs of my  coming in the day when I shall come in my glory  in the clouds of Heaven to fulfill the promises that  I have made unto your fathers for as you have  looked upon the long absence of your spirits from  your bodies to be a bondage I will shew unto  you how the day of redemption shall come & also  the restoration of the scattered Israel & now ye behold  this temple which is in Jerusalem which ye call the  House of God & your enemies say that this House shall  never fall but verily I say unto you that desolation  shall come upon this generation as a thief in the night  And this people shall be destroyed & scattered among all  Nations & this Temple which ye now see shall be thrown  down that there shall not be left an stone upon another  & it shall come to pass that this generation of Jews  shall not pass away [until every] desolation which I have told you  concerning them shall come to pass ye say that ye  know that the end of the World cometh ye say also  that ye know that the Heavens & the Earth shall pass away [p. 72]
Wherefore come ye unto it With him that cometh I will reason as with man in days of old And I will shew unto you my strong reasoning Wherefore hearken ye together & let me shew it unto you even my wisdom the wisdom of him whom ye say is the God of Enoch & his Brethren who were seperated from the Earth & were reserved unto myself a City reserved untill a day of righteousness shall come a day which was sought for by all Holy men & they found it not Because of wickedness & abominations & confessed that they were strangers & pilgrims on the Earth but obtained a promise that they should find it & see it in their flesh wherefore hearken & I will reason with you & I will speak unto you & prophecy as unto men in days of old & I will shew it plainly as I shewed it unto my Deciples as I stood before them in the flesh & spake unto them saying as ye have asked of me concerning these signs of my coming in the day when I shall come in my glory in the clouds of Heaven to fulfill the promises that I have made unto your fathers for as you have looked upon the long absence of your spirits from your bodies to be a bondage I will shew unto you how the day of redemption shall come & also the restoration of the scattered Israel & now ye behold this temple which is in Jerusalem which ye call the House of God & your enemies say that this House shall never fall but verily I say unto you that desolation shall come upon this generation as a thief in the night And this people shall be destroyed & scattered among all Nations & this Temple which ye now see shall be thrown down that there shall not be left an stone upon another & it shall come to pass that this generation of Jews shall not pass away [until every] desolation which I have told you concerning them shall come to pass ye say that ye know that the end of the World cometh ye say also that ye know that the Heavens & the Earth shall pass away [p. 72]
