Chapter 116 - PURA, THE MAIDEN FROM THE LOWLANDS, INQUIRES ABOUT THE PERSON OF ABEDAM

116,1. When Adam and all those present had heard the high Abedam mention the maiden they began to praise and glorify Him above all.

116,2. And Lamel promptly took her on his arm and stepped up with her to Abedam in answer to His bidding.

116,3. The maiden, having concluded in her heart from the well audible words of Abedam as well as from Adam's speeches and the loud praise given Him by all those present that something quite extraordinary must be hiding behind Abedam, began to be plagued by her innate curiosity.

116,4. So in her endeavor to learn everything about this peculiar man, she said to Lamel in a low, trembling voice, somewhat fearfully holding her mouth close to his ear:

116,5. "Dear, great and very strong friend! Would you not tell me who actually this man is who, as far as I have understood, is called 'Abedam'?

116,6. "Look, I am asking you for I find it very strange because he looks exactly like any of you. Yet his words seem - indeed they are - heavens apart from all ever so exalted-sounding words from any other mouth; indeed, they seem to me to penetrate all the heavens and all the earth.

116,7. What astonishes me most is the fact that as soon as I saw him all fear and sadness left me so completely that now I would find it utterly impossible to mourn and weep for my so wretchedly slain parents.

116,8. “Therefore, dear, great and very strong friend, I am asking you to give me some detailed information on this exceedingly remarkable man whose mere glance already holds more power than the arms of any man however strong."

116,9. Lamel, not knowing what to do now, took on an expression like one pondering deeply.

116,10. However, since he took a little too long with this pretence the maiden soon ran out of patience and asked him again in some astonishment:

116,11. "Listen, dear, great and very strong friend, who are carrying me on your strong arm according to the will of him about whom I asked you, why are you pretending to seek for an answer while remaining speechless as if the tongue in your mouth had turned into stone?

116,12. "Or did I maybe commit an error by asking you a question not appropriate for a person from the lowlands?

116,13. "Oh, I beg you, answer me one way or the other!"

116,14. Here Abedam said to Lamel: "Lamel, did I command you to be silent?

116,15. "I do not know that I, or someone in My name, had given such a commandment to you. So you can surely say what is right

116,16. "But I can already see that for this you lack the courage. So hand the child to Me so that on the way she may learn on My arm what she is thirsting for, - and you now walk behind Me. Amen."

116,17. Here the high Abedam promptly took the maiden on His arm; and she became exceedingly joyful and soon asked Him the same question, adding gaily:

116,18. "O you dear man who seem holy to me, surely you are not so obstinate as the man behind us who did not seem to deem me, a poor maiden, worthy of an answer and refused to reply, - and you will give me an answer to my question."

116,19. Here Abedam pressed the maiden to His most holy heart and said to her: "My dear Pura, you shall learn everything you are ever thirsting for."

116,20. Here the maiden was greatly astonished because the to her still unknown man had addressed her by her own name.

116,21. But Abedam continued to talk to her about Himself: "You wonder why I know your name; however, once you come to know Me better you will no longer be wondering about this but be amazed at quite a lot of other things.

116,22. "As you now have a ready ear, do listen: Behold, it was you who said that My words were far more sublime than those from any other mouth and seemed to penetrate heaven and earth and in My look was for you more strength than in all ever so strong human arms. Besides, all fear and sadness left you when you saw Me.

116,23. "Now look here, My dear Pura, having all this discovered in Me, what more do you need to know Me fully?

116,24. "I could certainly tell you instantly and show you by word and deed Who I actually am, - but you could not bear it; it would kill and utterly destroy you.

116,25. “Therefore, instead of the full answer I give you this advice: Love Me in your heart above all, and you will soon fully learn in your heart Who I actually am.

116,26. "But do not ask whether you are allowed to do so; for I am telling you this. So love Me without restraint above all. Amen."
