14For God speaks in one way,
and in two, though people do not perceive it.15In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls on mortals,
while they slumber on their beds,16then he opens their ears,
and terrifies them with warnings,17that he may turn them aside from their deeds,
and keep them from pride,18to spare their souls from the Pit,
their lives from traversing the River.
