Chapter 85 - Mathael is assigned as teacher to Ouran.

85,1. After this act Ouran (that was the name of the Greek, and his daughter was called Helena) was silent and began to gather himself, in order to be able to exchange words as a man of some life experience with Mathael, who had been introduced to him and who with a few words already gave people to understand that he was a man of higher wisdom, and to observe at every opportunity the SAPIENTI PAUCA[the wise needs little] in order not to appear as a man lacking in all better knowledge. When Ouran had recovered a little and had come to correct composure, he asked Mathael after quite a long pause whether the latter wanted to accompany him on his world travels and what he would demand for it in return.

85,2. Mathael says, pointing at Me, “Look over there, that is a Savior for body, soul and spirit! Hardly twelve hours have passed since I was still a most pitiful being on this Earth. My innards were so possessed by the very most evil spirits that my whole being became an earthly devil. I was the terror of the whole area among a horde of the worst street robbers, for all my limbs had to serve the devils; but my soul was paralyzed and didn’t know what was happening to its poor body. Friend, you can see from that how pitiful I was! But who could help me?! I was the greatest terror for anyone who came near me; you would have found it easier to manage ten hungry tigers than me alone. Only a cohort of the most daring Roman soldiers could become master of me and my companions; bound and tied like a barrel I was brought here with my four worst companions to be sentenced to death.

85,3. But over there you see the great healing master, who came from heaven to us pitiful worms of this hard and devilish Earth in order to heal also us physical devils through word and deed; He healed me and my companions and for such a healing He did not demand anything at all from the five of us, instead He did even greater good deeds for us physically and particularly spiritually!

85,4. Now this divine Savior of mine called me for the first time to a service for which you have now asked me, what compensation I would ask from you. Oh friend, before I have paid my due to this great One, I cannot possibly demand anything from you; for I serve thereby only Him who called me and not you!

85,5. But I will always remain in all eternity a greatest debtor and only through my service can I reduce my great debt in some way. Thus you, friend, will never be indebted to me for a service done to you – except for your true friendship and brotherly love!

85,6. For I have received it for free, and for the same price I will give it to you! Gold, silver and jewels you will not receive from me; but what I have should be given freely to you as well, as I have received it. Thus spare me in future from any similar questions!”

85,7. Ouran says, “Friend, you are one of the noblest people that I have ever encountered! Therefore you must become the wise leader of me and my daughter and remain such throughout my life!

85,8. I will, it is true, never ask you again, as you wish: 'What do you ask in return?' but that you shall never suffer with me any want as a friend and a genuine brother, you will surely accept that from me?!”

85,9. Mathael says, “There is still the question whether you will accept something, or everything, or even nothing at all from me! For my gifts, as I have already experienced a little, do not taste as sweet to the senses of your palate as a wine sweetened with pure honey in the way that the Greeks enjoy it now and then, but instead often bitterer than gall and the fresh juice of an old aloe! And sweet-loving palates do not often enjoy this! Thus we want to see first how our mutual talents can be exchanged!”

85,10. I say in the middle of this, “You know what, since we now have another full hour of sun and the evening will also be very pleasant, let’s take a walk together up Mark’s hill; there we can get to know each other a little better! Let your servants guard your tents for the moment, however, for you will only see them again and make use of them after midnight!”

85,11. Ouran says, “There are many and great valuables in them! But I believe that this area is safe!”

85,12. I say, “Friend, when you were in the greatest danger an hour ago and you were close to losing your life and everything, who saved you then?”

85,13. At this Ouran paused; only after a while he says, “Yes, yes, great Master! You are right, I am only a little stuck in my old habit and now I see the full foolishness of my fear; it will not happen for a second time, and I will go right away now without any further hesitation with you wherever you want!”
