From Hymn of the Pearl Translation by M. R. James
The Two image segment:
But suddenly, [when] I saw the garment made like unto
me as it had been in a mirror.
And I beheld upon it all myself (or saw it wholly in myself) and I knew and saw myself through it,
that we were divided asunder, being of one; and again were one in one shape.
Yea, the treasurers also which brought me the garment
I beheld, that they were two, yet one shape was upon both,
one royal sign was set upon both of them.
