Wisdom 19:18
If we are careful to observe events, we can see just how the elements of the universe are transformed. It’s the same transformation that happens when someone changes the sounds that a harp makes by changing the key while continuing to play the same melody.
For the things of the land were turned into things of the water: and the things before swam in the water passed upon the land.
On a harp each string keeps its own pitch, but each sound can be combined with others to make different melodies. That is how it was in those days, when the very elements entered into new combinations. Look at what happened!
For the elements, in ever-changing harmony, like strings of the harp, produce new melody, while the flow of music steadily persists. And this can be perceived exactly from a review of what took place.
For the elements changed places with one another, as on a harp the notes vary the nature of the rhythm, while each note remains the same. This may be clearly inferred from the sight of what took place.

Forsooth while elements be turned into themselves, as the sound of manner is changed in (an) organ, and (yet) all things keep their sound; wherefore it may be guessed of that certain sight. [Into themselves forsooth while the elements be turned, as in an organ of quality the sound is changed, and all keep their sound; wherefore of that certain sight it may be estimated.]
