Chapter 192 - THUBALKAIN'S CUNNING IS EXPOSED BY KISEHEL (15th November 1842)

192,1. After these words of Kisehel, Thubalkain realized that he could achieve nothing by way of a politic attitude and he began to ponder the matter quite earnestly, saying to himself:

192,2. 'This matter really seems to take on a serious character. What is to be done there? My feet are paralyzed; I cannot possibly run away!

192,3. "Pretending and diplomacy are here not at all advisable; for, where one is like a drop of water seen through clearly, I want to see him who would here succeed with miserable diplomacy!

192,4. "All this is quite right; but what remains to be done by me, who am in a bad spot at the moment?

192,5. 'This is a totally different question. Shall I maybe ask this odd mountain crowd's forgiveness for my somewhat rough behavior towards them?

192,6. "I, a prince of royal blood, an ore-master, on whom alone now depends the well-being of the whole nation and state?

192,7. "No, no, this would be a little too much and would mean going too far in this matter!

192,8. "A mightiest prince of royal blood - and apologize? - That would be a little too much!

192,9. "But what can I do? - He said at first I should take it all in full earnest, and could then talk to him as much as I wanted; but he also said finally I would not leave this spot until the last vestige of political scheming had gone out of me. -. Now I have got it! I am in full earnest to leave this spot and return to my mining and metal business!

192,10. "This is surely no political scheming? Thus I can easily take him at his word; if he should still not release me, I can on the spot accuse him of a lie and name him a blasphemer of his God, for he openly declared that his every word and action were in the fullest earnest and truth out of the eternal order of God.

192,11. "Oh, now I have caught the merry bird! Once I am again free, he may send six thousand women after me and Thubalkain will not take another step out of his great workshops!"

192,12. Here Kisehel interrupted his train of thought and said to him: 'Thubalkain, tell me what you consider worse: The scheming of men or the cunning of serpents?"

192,13. Now Thubalkain was mightily taken aback not knowing how to answer this question and fell silent in great embarrassment.

192,14. But Kisehel continued: "Having seen that scheming will succeed neither with me nor with all these my brothers, you then embraced the most artful cunning of the serpents.

192,15. "There is not the slightest doubt that you are earnestly concerned about the mobility of your feet; however, you are badly mistaken in thinking you could catch me through this your only self-seeking truth. For since you cannot prevail against me with the first degree of spite, of what benefit to you will be the second, lower degree?

192,16. "Do you think I become a blasphemer of God for not freeing your feet because of your cunning?

192,17. "Go by no means; for I know God and do only what His Holy Spirit urges me to do in accordance with my will which is wholly surrendered to Him.

192,18. "So I become no blasphemer of God as a sly result of your cunning; but you certainly are one, for you are trying to beguile not me, but only the Spirit of God if it were somehow possible to you.

192,19. „I tell you: Were you not a heathen and a servant of the dragon, such a plan might be of evil consequences for you!

192,20. "But you do not know the one true God; therefore, such a thought, provided you seriously regret it, can be forgiven you.

192,21. "If you want to be freed, turn to the one true, eternal God, Whom your mother Zilla still preached to you through the mouth of Farak, and not to me; for not 1, but God's grace paralyzed your feet.

192,22. "I am only a man like you, but a man after the will of God, recognizing my complete nothingness before Him.

192,23. "Do become likewise and do what I am doing; realize your great foolishness and your sin and recognize God, and you will become free!

192,24. "Understand this and act accordingly. Amen."
