Chapter 195 - THUBALKAIN'S ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE MINING OF GOLD. ENTRY INTO LAMECH'S RESIDENCE (21st November 1842)

195,1. After they had thus glorified and praised God for almost an hour, Kisehel at an inner prompting finally rose and said to the others:

195,2. "In the name of the one almighty God I tell you: Stand up with me; for this is the holy will of Him Who was before us speaking words of life, grace and mercy!"

195,3. And all stood up at Kisehel's bidding. When all had risen from the ground, strengthened and of good cheer, Kisehel turned to Thubalkain and said to him:

195,4. "Brother Thubalkain, listen! Since it is the Lord's will, you may well call your workers and show them their work; they shall begin at once and work through the whole night.

195,5. "Just as they smelted the ore of the mountains by means of rock-salt and strong fire they shall smelt also this ore; and only when they have obtained a great number of lumps of pure ore shall they stop the smelting.

195,6. "A sufficient quantity shall consist of seventeen hundred lumps. So make your arrangements. Amen."

195,7. And Thubalkain promptly summoned a large crowd of his workers, showed them the crude ore and then instructed them how to go about smelting the same and forming it into round lumps.

195,8. When the workers had fully comprehended this, his first foreman asked him:

195,9. „O lord and strict ruler, it is all good and well presented; but allow me to ask you and do not be angry if I ask and say respectfully: We have a sufficient number of workers and ore in great abundance; however, from where are we to take the wood and the salt? For without these no smelting can be done.

195,10. "Shall we bring our wood here and use our own salt or shall we take it all from the city?"

195,11. And Thubalkain said to the foreman: "Listen, since I have taken on the work I have done so wholly, including the wood and the salt.

195,12. "I tell you: Not only the wood and the salt, but the whole food-supply including the wages is up to me.

195,13. "So fetch everything necessary for the work, and try to begin the same within the hour; that is, as soon as the sun sets behind the mountains the fire must already be going here!

195,14. "Make at least one hundred pits three spans deep using all the two thousand workers, and with the new blessing of the one true, almighty God the work will progress well.

195,15. "So let at once a hundred workers make the pits; two hundred shall fetch the wood; two hundred the salt; a hundred shall fetch food; two hundred shall dig the crude ore, and two hundred shall fry and smelt the same. And when a pit is full, let it cool down for thirty swings of the hand; then take the lumps out of the pit and begin at once with a new firing.

195,16. "If you work thus diligently throughout the night we should have an abundant supply of this ore by tomorrow.

195,17. "Tomorrow we shall then have brought the heavy hammers worked by foot leverage, and before the sun sets the lumps will have been beaten into nice sheets.

195,18. "Now you know everything; go and do accordingly. So be it!"

195,19. And the foreman set to work at once and Kisehel said to Thubalkain: "Brother, you have arranged the matter well; therefore, let the work be blessed. Truly, I say to you, tomorrow you shall behold wonders; for your workers will produce so much of this ore that you will tremble at the sight of it!

195,20. "But leave the matter be for now; for everything has been put in order.

195,21. "You, brother Lamech, take the tablet and go ahead; we others shall follow you into your house. There we will preserve this sacred object until the completion of the temple; after that we all want to be your guests with you as our brother and host.

195,22. "We shall eat at your table and in your house praise the holiest name of the most loving Father of all men.

195,23. "And you, brother Thubalkain, shall walk by my side and this very day in your father's house receive the agreed-upon reward; for you know that in your father's house there are numerous women and maids. Behold, all of them are now quite cleansed, and you shall have the right one out of the great number. - So let us proceed there. Amen."

195,24. And forthwith Lamech with the greatest reverence and love seized the sacred object and went ahead, followed by 'Thubalkain with Kisehel and the other messengers.

195,25. As they approached the city, a great crowd came towards them, shouting: "Glory be to God on high for making Lamech a good king!" Thus the people were shouting late into the night.

195,26. But Lamech was moved so that he wept loudly.
