LXXXVI. THE FALL OF THE ANGELS AND THE DEMORALIZATION OF MANKIND.

LXXXVI

1And again I saw with mine eyes as I slept, and I saw the heaven above, and behold a star fell 2from heaven, and it arose and eat and pastured amongst those oxen. And after that I saw the large and the black oxen, and behold they all changed their stalls and pastures and their cattle, and began 3to live with each other. And again I saw in the vision, and looked towards the heaven, and behold I saw many stars descend and cast themselves down from heaven to that first star, and they became 4bulls amongst those cattle and pastured with them {amongst them}. And I looked at them and saw, and behold they all let out their privy members, like horses, and began to cover the cows of the oxen, 5and they all became pregnant and bare elephants, camels, and asses. And all the oxen feared them and were affrighted at them, and began to bite with their teeth and to devour, and to gore with their 6horns. And they began, moreover, to devour those oxen; and behold all the children of the earth began to tremble and quake before them and to flee from them.

85:1 Again I looked attentively, while sleeping, and surveyed heaven above.

85:2 And behold a single star fell from heaven.

85:3 Which being raised up, ate and fed among those cows.

85:4 After that I perceived [other] large and black cows; and behold all of them changed their stalls and pastures, while their young began to lament one with another. Again I looked in [my] vision, and surveyed heaven; when behold I saw many stars which descended, and projected themselves from heaven to where the first star was,

85:5 Into the midst of those young ones; while the cows were with them, feeding in the midst of them.

85:6 I looked at and observed them; when behold, they all acted after the manner of horses, and began to approach the young cows, all of whom became pregnant, and brought forth elephants, camels, and asses.

85:7 At these all the cows were alarmed and terrified; when they began biting with their teeth, swallowing, and striking with their horns.

85:8 They began also to devour the cows; and behold all the children of the earth trembled, shook with terror at them, and suddenly fled away.
