Mabool (The Flood)



...הנני מביא את המבול מים על הארץ,

לשחת כל בשר אשר בו רוח חיים מתחת השמים,

כל אשר בארץ יגווע...

ומחיתי את כל היקום אשר עשיתי מעל פני האדמה

Translation:

And, behold, I, do bring a flood of waters upon
The land, to destroy all flesh,
Wherein is the breath fo life,
From under heaven, and every thing that is in the
Land shall die…and I shall wipe away
The world I created upon the land.



May the lord eternal save his troubled child

As he passes through rain and storm

Behind the walls of this hallowed ark of wood

Our prophets found a revelation, which they have understood

Onto the lands of fearful heaven comes a flood erasing all

Landing as if a ruthless bird of pray to crush all human souls



The lightning colors the sky with flames of light

Hell shines above us and fires bright

Erasing the worksof the common man, all we hold dear is set alight



ביום הזה נבקעו כל מעיינות תהום רבה

וארובות השמים נפתחו...

ומי המבול היו על הארץ

Translation: …In the seventh day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
Of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven had opened…
…And the waters of the flood, were upon the land…



Shattered glass reflects this shattered world, barren is the landscape here

Thunder roars as a lion caged, heat that comes like waves of fear

Oceans rise and rage as we watch the world powers fall

Redeeming their sinful ways with their souls

May the truth fill their hearts, let them see the light, when they embrace their gods



והנה חרבו פני האדמה...

שופך דם האדםת באדם דמו ישפך

Translation: …and the face of the land was dead…

Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.





Seas cover the works of timeless art

That once brought joy to human hearts

In halls of infamy this day shall live

Like the burning of Rome and betrayal of Eve

Like the fire raised at the witches' stakes



Return all earthly possessions

As ashes you return to earth, child of God, to face the divine lord who sits upon the throne – eyes sad

Go in peace and find thy faith

Evolve thy self and lose all hate

So a heaven you may creat



In this world of sorrowful ways

None shall live to see the light of day

Some may survive to tell this tale

If their belife shall conquer this gale

Damnation is the punishment bestowed

El Norra Alila the vengeful God
