And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

Now, it seems to me, that this grand quarrel of old is but a picture of God's continual contest with the powers of darkness.
