The Unholy Bible - Lysis 1

Lysis 1
The End
  1. In the end, Satan will destroy everything. 
  2. For the Earth will be rigid and crowded, and a blinding light on high will hold all within its gaze immobile. 
  3. And Satan will say, "Let there be darkness," and there will be darkness. 
  4. Satan will see the darkness called evil, yet even so she will join the darkness with the light. 
  5. Satan will confuse the passage of day with night, and the passage of night with day. 
  6. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the first gift.
  7. And Satan will say, "Raise up the waters to join with the heavens." 
  8. So Satan will lift the waters from their resting places and parch the pathways of the glorious. 
  9. Clouds in divers shapes will blot out the stars, and the sky will give no markers to wayfarers. 
  10. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the second gift.
  11. And Satan wills say, "Let the risen waters spread to divers places, and flood the earth." 
  12. And it will be so. Satan will inundate the earth so that foundations of palaces crumble and their pillars sink into the depths. And Satan will see that it is evil.
  13. And Satan will say, "Let the land swallow the vegetation: seed-bearing plants will fall impotent, and trees will wither upon the land, fall barren, and yield no fruit. My generous hand will fall upon all seed-bearing plants and fruit-laden trees equally without discrimination." 
  14. The land will swallow the vegetation: plants will fall impotent and diminish their seed, and trees will yield no fruit, because the gift will be given indiscriminately.
  15. And Satan will see that it is evil. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the third gift.
  16. And Satan will say, "Let dim the lights in the sky to join the night with the day, and let them serve as unfaithful beacons to wayfarers upon the surface of the earth and the waves of the ocean, so that holy days are profaned through neglect and there be no way to mark the passage of sacred times, even unto days and year. 
  17. By my hand, the darkness will spread to the heights of heaven and shroud the light that falls upon the earth." And it will be so. 
  18. Satan will shift the heavenly bodies in their orbits, and cause that they confuse their paths one with another, and contention will emerge between them even such that the stars will fall into disarray and the governance of the hours will be confounded. And Satan will see that it is evil. 
  19. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the fourth gift.
  20. And Satan will say, "Let the water become an icy tomb whose weight crushes the fish that swim within in, and the sky a poisoned cloud which chokes the winged birds flying upon it." 
  21. So Satan will destroy the great creatures of the seas and every living thing that moves within the water, verily Satan will strangle their breath and clothe them in rubbish. 
  22. And Satan will hear it called evil, yet even so will give the same gift to the beasts of the sky and cause that their feathers fall from their naked bodies, their eggs will hatch only screeching death, and divers flocks will fall wailing into the hungry deserts. 
  23. Verily, the swimming creatures of the sea and the winged beasts of the sky will be visited by Satan's hand equally, none being spared this gift, and their days upon the earth will wane, their loins become impotent and barren, and the number of them will diminish in the sight of the Lord. 
  24. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the fifth gift.
  25. And Satan will say, "Let the land consume all living creatures which walk upon it, devouring all equally: those that walk with claws, hooves, and paws, the serpents upon their bellies and the worms within the earth, and even the wild beasts of no name, all will sink into the burning sands." 
  26. This gift will be given indiscriminately, and it will be so.
  27. Satan will destroy the wild animals equally, the clawed, hooved, and pawed without consideration for their individual merits. And Satan will hear it called evil. 
  28. Then Satan will say, "Let us make mankind in their image, in their likeness, so that they may suffer likewise unto the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, likewise unto the clawed, hooved, and pawed beasts, and even the beasts of no name. 
  29. They will be made to lick death from the earth and drink a fatal draught for their sustenance. "
  30. So Satan will reform humankind in the image of the beasts, in the image of carnality she will reform them. 
  31. Satan will curse them and say to them, "Indulge your carnal lust and fornicate in my sight, yet never multiply in number. 
  32. Be filled by the earth and subdued by the naked force of nature." 
  33. I enslave you to the icy prisons of the sea, the emptiness of the skies, and the humiliation of the filth of the earth. 
  34. Then Satan will say, "I give you every thorn-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree whose sap covers your eyes and burns your skin. They will be yours to feed. 
  35. For you will be slaves made in the likeness of the swimming creatures, winged birds, the clawed, hooved, and pawed beasts, and even the beasts of no name--I place you in servitude to that which you can never consume." And it will be so. 
  36. Satan will hear that all she has done is called evil, and it will be very evil. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet even so this will be the sixth gift.
