Chapter 171 - THE MIRACULOUS REPLENISHMENT OF SETH'S LARDERS

171,1. Upon this speech by Enoch all the patriarchs, including the four from midday, rose from the ground and went to their dwellings. When they arrived there Adam invited Enoch, the known Abedam and the four from the midday region to stay with him for the night and share the meal in his hut with him.

171,2. And the guests greeted Adam with childlike love and, gladly acceding to his wish, entered Adam's hut.

171,3. Adam right away ordered the meal with Seth, and Seth promptly looked after it.

171,4. So he hurried to his dwelling and told his children to bring three medium-sized baskets full of the best fruits, milk, juice from berries, water, bread and honey.

171,5. Seth's children rushed to his great larders to fulfill their father's will; but how amazed and sadly did they return forthwith from the larders, finding the same completely empty!

171,6. When they revealed this to Seth, the latter promptly went to the larders himself where to his sorrow he found his children's statements confirmed.

171,7. "What am I to do now?" he asked his own heart; but it remained silent and no good advice emerged from it.

171,8. Therefore, he soon left his dwelling and returned to the dwelling of Adam.

171,9. Having arrived there, he promptly disclosed with the most pitiable mien the truly deplorable state of his larders.

171,10. When the already rather hungry Adam heard this, he became sad himself and, finally turning to Enoch, asked him whether his larders might be better appointed than Seth's.

171,11. And Enoch replied: "Listen, if father Seth's larders should really be in the condition described by him, I am in advance convinced that my larders are not so poorly appointed as his.

171,12. "However, I reckon that this time the father Seth in his great eagerness did not look around enough in his house. So again let me say: Seth's larders are exceedingly full; and the father Seth should go to the same in order to find them crammed full.

171,13. "For Abba Jehovah is not only full of love and mercy when walking among us visibly, but He is the very Same also when hidden from our eyes; therefore, to Him all our love, all praise and all honour forever. Amen."

171,14. And Seth said: "Enoch, you have spoken the truth: All our love and adoration to the good, most loving Father! For He has now proved Himself to me great and exceedingly merciful; for truly: My larders were emptied to the last drop, and now I am seeing them again packed full in my heart."

171,15. And Seth immediately returned to his dwelling, and all his children and his wife hurried towards him shouting "Father, father! Our larders are crammed full with the most delicious and aromatic foods of every kind!"

171,16. And Seth fell down on his face intending to give thanks and pray; but a voice called as if out of heaven: "My dear brother Seth, I know you and you know Me; so rise and look after Adam and his by Me beloved guests! Amen."

171,17. Here Seth jumped up and looked around so as to somehow catch sight of the holy Abba.

171,18. But the voice spoke again: "Seth, why are you casting your eyes around? Is not the heart My house within you? So go and serve the guests. Amen."

171,19. And Seth went promptly and amply provided the guests relating to them what had happened.

171,20. 111ereupon Enoch replied: "So it is and will remain, namely, that the ear is closer to life than the eye; but the heart alone is the eternal abode of life. 'Therefore to Him, the Father of life, the fullest dedication of our hearts forever! Amen."

171,21. Thereupon Adam blessed the guests, praised God with them and then they all went to their rest.
