My galligaskins, that have long withstood The winter's fury, and encroaching frosts, By time subdued (what will not time subdue!) An horrid chasm disclosed.
I leapt at the tape like a man taking his last spring to save himself from the chasm that threatens to engulf him.Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister
There exists a great chasm between those, on one side, who relate everything to a single central vision ... and, on the other side, those who pursue many ends, often unrelated and even contradictory ... The first kind of intellectual and artistic personality belongs to the hedgehogs, the second to the foxes.isaiah berlin
The masses of our countrymen, North and South, are eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has so long divided them.Horace Greeley
If this is a dream, then perhaps our dreamingCan touch life's height to a finer fire:Who knows but the heavens and all their seemingWere made by the heart's desire?One thing shines clear in the heart's sweet reason,One lightning over the chasm runs —That to turn from love is the world's one treasonThat darkens all the suns.edwin markham

The belief that the gods delighted especially in the gift of human blood was responsible for the widespread custom of offering up captured enemies, and sometimes even friends and relatives, upon the alter.

In Mexico the gods ruled, the priests interpreted and interposed, and the people obeyed. In Spain, the priests ruled, the king interpreted and interposed, and the gods obeyed. A nuance in an ideological difference is a wide chasm.
This Constitution does not reflect the thoughts, hopes and aspirations of ordinary people. It does nothing for jobs or economic growth and widens further still the democratic deficit. The gap between the governors and the governed is now a gaping chasm.

I accept your nomination in the confident trust that the masses of our countrymen, North and South, are eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has so long divided them.

[According to] Genesis 6:1-6, there the 'children of God' have intercourse with women, producing a race of Nephilim , 'mighty men that were old, men of renown'. Enoch 6-11 describes how these heavenly beings (all named) teach the women about spells, root-cutting and plants, astrology, weapons of war, and cosmetics. The women give birth to giants, who turn to cannibalism and drinking blood. The earth cries out for help, and God orders the execution of the giants, the binding of the Watchers beneath the hill until the day of judgment, and thereafter in a fiery chasm.
