Wisdom of Solomon 19:20

“The fire had power in the water, forgetting his owne vertue: and the water forgat his owne quenching nature.”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 19:20

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. 22. For in all things, O Lord, thou didst magnifie thy people, and glorifie them, neither didst thou lightly regard them: but didst assist them in euery time and place.
