Angelus autem Domini descendit de caelo,
et accedens revoluit lapidem, et sedet super eum.
Et ecce terremotus factus est magnus.
Erat autem aspectu eius sicut sulgur
vestimenta autem eius sicut nix.

And behold, there was a great earthquake.
His countenance was like lightning,
and his raiment white as snow:
