Plate XI, from The Book of Job
(image added 2011)
My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest (Job xxx: 17).
My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat (Job xxx: 30).
...the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment (Job xx: 5).
...for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light....his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness (Second Corinthians xi: 14-15).
Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions (Job vii: 14).
Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? Oh that my words were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead into the rock forever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter days upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though consumed be my wrought Image. (Job xix: 22-27)
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped (Second Thessalonians ii: 4).
