1And he answered and said to me, Whatever happens then will happen to the whole earth; so that all who are alive will experience it. 2For at that time I will protect only those who are found in those days in this land. 3And it shall be that when all is accomplished that was to come to pass in the twelve periods before the end, 1 Lit. ‘in those parts’. We have taken the reference here to be to the twelve divisions of the time of the Messianic woes (described in detail in chap. xxvii): however, the reference could possibly be to the ‘parts of the earth’ mentioned in xxviii. 7. the Messiah shall then begin to be revealed. And 4Behemoth shall appear from his place and Leviathan shall ascend from the sea – those two great monsters I created on the fifth day of creation and have kept until then; and then they shall serve as food for all that survive. 5The earth also shall yield its fruit ten thousand-fold; and on each vine there shall be a thousand branches, and each branch shall produce a thousand clusters, and each cluster produce a thousand grapes, and each grape produce a cor of wine. 6And those who have been hungry will rejoice; and, also, they shall see marvels every day. 7For winds shall go forth from me bearing the scent of aromatic fruits every morning, and, at the close of day, clouds distilling a health-giving dew. 8And at that time the storehouse of manna shall descend from on high again; and they shall eat of it in those years, because it is they who have come to the final consummation.
