Wisdom of Solomon 17:18

“Whether it were a whistling winde, or a melodious noise of birdes among the spreading branches, or a pleasing fall of water running violently:”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 17:18

15. Were partly vexed with monstrous apparitions, and partly fainted, their heart failing them: for a suddaine feare and not looked for, came vpon them. 16. So then, whosoeuer there fell downe, was straitly kept, shut vp in a prison without yron barres. 17. For whether hee were husbandman, or shepheard, or a labourer in the field, he was ouertaken, and endured that necessitie, which could not be auoided: for they were all bound with one chaine of darkenesse. 18. Whether it were a whistling winde, or a melodious noise of birdes among the spreading branches, or a pleasing fall of water running violently: 19. Or a terrible sound of stones cast downe, or a running that could not be seene of skipping beasts, or a roaring voice of most sauage wilde beasts, or a rebounding Eccho from the hollow mountaines: these things made them to swoone for feare. 20. For the whole world shined with cleare light, and none were hindered in their labour. 21. Ouer them onely was spread an heauie night, an image of that darkenesse which should afterwards receiue them: but yet were they vnto themselues more grieuous then the darkenesse.
