Scripture Reference:

Description: Adam and Eve pick fruit from the tree and are confronted by God; a person is dragged into hell by a pair of demons, while a lion watches; Moses returns from Mt. Sinai; above, Christ sits enthroned in the clouds and a banner reads, "Depart from me. Matth. 25 (Matthew 25:17)." The Latin superscription reads "Shrinking from the thunder: the ones who speak evil perish," and the text below, "How loudly will the perishing flash in our terrified ears? Such noise has never broken forth from the heavenly regions." The numeral, 66, has been placed in the upper right to indicate its plate number within a series of illustrations.
