Text on facing page:
POURQUOI TOUS LES VISAGES
SONT-ILS DEVENUS LIVIDES?
MALHEUR! CAR GRANDE EST CETTE JOURNÉE!
LE SOLEIL S'EST OBSCURCI A SON LEVER,
ET LA LUNE NE RÉPAND PLUS SA CLARTÉ.
Why do I see every every face turned deathly pale? Alas! for that day is great. The sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. (Jeremiah 30 & Isaiah 13)
