* Spelt Bereuuich in the Recapitulation.
|'A careful survey of the country was made and was set down in common language and drawn up into a book; in order that every man may be content with his own rights, and not encroach unpunished on those of others. This book is metaphorically called by the native English, Domesday, i.e. the Day of Judgement. For as the sentence of that strict and terrible last account cannot be evaded by any subterfuge, so when this book is appealed to on those matters which it contains, its sentence cannot be quashed or set aside with impunity. That is why we call it "the Book of Judgement", because its decisions, like those of the Last Judgement are unalterable.'|
