Who covereth the heavens with clouds, Who prepareth rain for the earth, Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
As clouds and wind without rain,'so is he that boasteth himself of his gifts falsely.
If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth; and if a tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there shall it be.

before the sun, and the light, and the moon, and the stars, are darkened, and the clouds return after the rain;
