Chapter 187 - LAMECH'S GOOD MESSAGE TO HIS PEOPLE. THE DISOBEDIENT BAILIFFS OF LAMECH. THE MIRACULOUS MEAL STRENGTHENING THE BAILIFFS

187,1. When Lamech had received these instructions from Kisehel, he became exceedingly glad and glorified and praised My name thanking Me for this great grace through which he was found worthy of building such a house for My name.

187,2. Having thus worshiped Me in the abundant love and contrition of his heart, he turned to the bailiffs and the royal servants and said to them:

187,3. "Like me, you have all seen the great miracle and have heard with regard to the proposed holy building the words from the mouth of the almighty God's great messenger as to what must be done at once.

187,4. "And so go in the name of the great messengers and in the name of the supreme God in all directions and invite for the morrow all who volunteer out of love for God for the sublime beginning of this work.

187,5. "But tell also all of them what happened to Lamech so that no one need any longer fear him; and everybody's tongue shall be loosened so that he may speak his mind and reveal his will.

187,6. "Moreover, tell them that Lamech the Cruel, the hyena in human disguise, has turned into a lamb deeply regretting every drop of blood and every tear he has ever caused his subjects through whatever suppressions.

187,7. "And proclaim to all loudly that Lamech, having been forgiven his great sin by the merciful great God, Whom the father Farak had preached, will strive diligently and make it his main concern all his life to atone wherever possible for any crime committed towards them and will in all future regard them all as his brothers and sisters.

187,8. “Therefore, no one need any longer fear Lamech! Knowing all this, go now to proclaim, not my, but the almighty, great God's will! So be it."

187,9. But the bailiffs hesitated and looked as if they did not want to carry out Lamech's order at once.

187,10. When Lamech saw this he became sad; and his sadness changed into a great zeal so that he said to the tarrying bailiffs:

187,11. "Listen, you indolent bailiffs and servants of my court: While Lamech forced you with iron rods you used to obey his slightest hint;

187,12. "But now that he asks you as a brother you do not lend an ear to his voice!

187,13. "However, you are not disobedient towards me, but towards God the Almighty; so watch out how He will regard you for your disobedience!

187,14. "I did not command you but merely proclaimed God's will to you; so do what you like, -- but watch out lest judgment overtake you!"

187,15. 'Thereupon Lamech turned to Kisehel and said: "0 you dear emissary of the Lord, tell me, your most miserable servant, did I do wrong in proclaiming your will out of God to these brothers for them to fulfill it?"

187,16. And Kisehel replied to Lamech, saying: "0 brother Lamech, your every word was right and perfect; but the bailiffs and servants are weak and hungry. So let us first allow them to have a meal, and then they will surely do what is right." - And Lamech bowed to Kisehel and asked him, saying:

187,17. “O you great friend, advise me what to do; for here is nothing whereby to satisfy these hungry ones!

187,18. "Shall I maybe summon them to court, there to appease their hunger with the best fruits from my larders, or have food and drink brought here by the maids?

187,19. “O friend, say it, and I will do everything to your liking."

187,20. Thereupon Kisehel said to Lamech: "Listen, brother, neither the one nor the other is necessary. For behold, the maids and women have many a leftover in their baskets; let us bless it and be assured that it will suffice for all." And Lamech fell down before Kisehel and asked for his blessing.

187,21. And Kisehel said at once to the women and maids: "Place your leftovers in the baskets here." - And after the women and maids had done this, Kisehel and his brothers looked up to heaven and Kisehel blessed the leftovers in the baskets.

187,22. And suddenly the baskets were full, and Kisehel summoned the bailiffs and said to them: Well then, you indolent and lazy bailiffs, come here and eat your fill so that you may then do Lamech's bidding! Amen."

187,23. Thereupon the bailiffs reached for the baskets and their contents; only after they had appeased their hunger did they begin to fully recognize Me and then also glorify and praise Me.

187,24. After their glorifying and praising they quickly stood up and fulfilled Lamech's will by hiring a large number of workers for the morrow.
