Plate XII, from The Book of Job
(image added 2011)
For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not (Job xxxiii: 14).
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumbering upon the bed (Job xxxiii: 15)
Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction (Job xxxiii: 16).
That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man (Job xxxiii: 17).
If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand... Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down into the pit: I have found a ransom (Job xxxiii: 23-24).
For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings (Job xxxiv: 21).
I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid (Job xxxii: 6)
Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living (Job xxxiii: 29-30).
Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou (Job xxxv: 5).
If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him?... If thou be tighteous, what givest thou him? (Job xxxv: 6-7).
