Chapter 106 - A CASE WHERE POLYGAMY IS ALLOWED

106,1. After this speech Enoch, following an inner bidding, promptly stepped up to Horadal and said:

106,2. "Horadal, it is the Lord's will that you with your ten helpers now also take food; do this according to the will of Him Who sent me to you.

106,3. "After you have strengthened yourselves, rise and set out all of you.

106,4. "Do follow to wherever the two strong leaders will guide you; but stay forthwith wherever they will indicate that you do.

106,5. "You will know for certain that you have reached your permanent home when you see your wives and children, left behind in the city of Enoch, who will be waiting for you. This concerns mainly you, the leaders, since it was you who had to leave them behind as hostages to Lamech as a token of your loyalty"

106,6. "I am telling you this according to the will of the Lord so that you may cheerfully strengthen yourselves and then joyfully and courageously go to where the Lord has prepared for you a permanent land.

106,7. "Since you now know all this, eat and drink in the name of the Lord now as always. Amen."

106,8. And Horadal with the ten thanked for this invitation and the encouraging news and then, together with them, took food and drink.

106,9. While they were having their meal, the high Abedam turned to Adam and said:

106,10. "Your truly fatherly instruction to these poor men was really good, but one thing has to be rectified, namely, what you said about polygamy.

106,11. "Behold, you are quite right in presenting polygamy as completely contrary to My order and right in indicating the habitual dwelling of the serpent and of death.

106,12. "But try to think what is better for these men since they, and in particular their leaders, are each provided with at least ten wives: To separate them leaving them only one wife, or to leave matters stand as they are?

106,13. "If a man leaves nine wives out of ten keeping just one, what shall the nine do with their children and how will they feel in their hearts?

106,14. "Or, if he keeps them all out of concern for the feelings of the children of his ten wives, and the wives, getting to know us through their husbands and that contrary to the alone true order we left them in the station assigned to them by the iron bonds of their law, will praise and glorify us in their hearts -

106,15. "And also all their children who would otherwise curse us in their hearts will realize our great mercy and love-

106,16. "What do you reckon might be better at least for those who are already in this lamentable and disorderly situation?

106,17. "I tell you: For children of the world who are too much bothered by their flesh, polygamy is better than fornication and rape or the violation of boys.

106,18. "Indeed, I tell you: Polygamy is even better than the inordinate cohabitation with a woman where no begetting of offspring is intended but only the mute gratification of the sexual urge, particularly when the woman is already visibly pregnant.

106,19. "For he who has ten or several wives, begets almost all the time whenever he cohabits with one. But he, who inordinately and repeatedly cohabits with only one woman, firstly does not beget a fruit with each act, but he oftentimes spoils the already begotten one and, finally, even renders his wife completely barren.

106,20. "Since this, as you surely know, has been happening already with the children of the heights, who went forth from My grace and blessing, how much more will this be the case with those who went forth from My judgment!

106,21. "Therefore, judge yourself what is at the moment better, particularly for the children of the lowlands.

106,22. "Although by this I do not wish to introduce polygamy, least of all with you, do go and acquaint these children of the lowlands with it. But you can add that they must still not educate their children for polygamy but in accordance with My true order as proclaimed in your speech. Amen."
