Then there came from the sea a mighty flood. Many were drowned, and men became fewer. And when men had thus become fewer, two old women debated: "Better to be without day," said one, "if thus we may be without death." "No," said the other, "let us have both light and death." And as she spoke, it was so: light came, and death.
