which cities our Lord speaks in terms of censure, saying : " Woe unto thee, Bethsaida ! woe unto thee, Chorazin !" Antichrist wiB also have magicians, sorcerers, diviners and enchanters, who, the DevB so inspiring them, wiB nurture him and educate him in aB iniquities and falsehood, and in the foul art, and evB spirits shaB be his guides, associates, and sole companions. Then shaH they come to Jerusalem, and aB Christians whom he shaB not be enabled to convert to his own ways, he wiB slay with various torments, and wBl prepare to make his abode in the holy Temple.
