37So I took the five men, as he commanded me, and we went into the field, and remained there. 38And the next day, behold, a voice called me, saying, Esdras, open thy mouth, and drink that I give thee to drink. 39Then opened I my mouth, and, behold, he reached me a full cup, which was full as it were with water, but the colour of it was like fire. 40And I took it, and drank: and when I had drunk of it, my heart uttered understanding, and wisdom grew in my breast, for my spirit strengthened my memory:41And my mouth was opened, and shut no more. 42The Highest gave understanding unto the five men, and they wrote the wonderful visions of the night that were told, which they knew not: and they sat forty days, and they wrote in the day, and at night they ate bread. 43As for me. I spake in the day, and I held not my tongue by night.
And I tooke it, and dranke: and when I had drunke of it, my heart vttered vnderstanding: and wisedome grew in my brest, for my spirit strengthened my memory. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
