Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Apocrypha of the New Testament.: Chapter 23

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter 23.

And it came to pass, when the most blessed Mary went into the temple with the little child, that all the idols prostrated themselves on the ground, so that all of them were lying on their faces shattered and broken to pieces; 1665 and thus they plainly showed that they were nothing.  Then was fulfilled that which was said by the prophet Isaiah:  Behold, the Lord will come upon a swift cloud, and will enter Egypt, and all the handiwork of the Egyptians shall be moved at His presence. 1666
