Wisdom of Solomon 19:18

“For the elements were changed in themselues by a kind of harmonie, like as in a Psaltery notes change the name of the tune, and yet are alwayes sounds, which may well be perceiued by the sight of the things that haue beene done.”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 19:18

15. And not onely so: but peraduenture some respect shall be had of those, because they vsed strangers not friendly. 16. But these very grieuously afflicted them, whom they had receiued with feastings, and were already made partakers of the same lawes with them. 17. Therefore euen with blindnesse were these stricken, as those were at the doores of the righteous man: when being compassed about with horrible great darknesse, euery one sought the passage of his owne doores. 18. For the elements were changed in themselues by a kind of harmonie, like as in a Psaltery notes change the name of the tune, and yet are alwayes sounds, which may well be perceiued by the sight of the things that haue beene done. 19. For earthly things were turned into watry, and the things that before swamme in the water, now went vpon the ground. 20. The fire had power in the water, forgetting his owne vertue: and the water forgat his owne quenching nature. 21. On the other side, the flames wasted not the flesh of the corruptible liuing things, though they walked therin, neither melted they the ycie kind of heauenly meate, that was of nature apt to melt.
