Chapter 54 - THE PATRIARCHS RECEIVE THE TWELWE. SETH'S SPEECH IMPEDIMENT IS HEALED BY ABEDAM. THE FEEDING OF THE TWELVE

54,1. Just as Garbiel and Besediel were discussing things on the way, also all the others were doing and so, led by Me, they all arrived on top of the height, their well-prepared hearts edified and full of devotion.

54,2. When they arrived there, Abedam bade the patriarchs raise themselves and receive the twelve led to the height personally by Him and Adam.

54,3. As soon as the patriarchs had heard Abedam express this desire, all the fathers, wives and children opened their arms to the twelve and they were received in the most loving manner.

54,4. Only Seth kept in the background; for now he was afraid of those whom formerly he had so harshly rebuked.

54,5. But Adam summoned Seth and asked him, saying: "Ahbel-Seth, why are you staying away when everything that breathes on this height follows the voice of the most holy Father?

54,6. "Or have your arms maybe become stiff for you not to want to stretch them out to those the holy Father Abedam Himself has brought here? - Or did you maybe miss His call?"

54,7. But Seth promptly fell to his knees before Adam and Abedam entreating them: "Oh do forgive me thoughtless fool! What I have done, - -"

54,8. Here Abedam interrupted him and said: "That, I have done, wherefore it was right and proper!

54,9. "But your fear is now idle which prevents you from receiving those whom I Myself have led here, Who then called you all here showing you what to do.

54,10. „Therefore, cast aside your foolish fear and follow the example of all the others and you will free your heart and keep it safe against any reproach on the part of your own conscience, - particularly since you are standing before Me as a man free of all sin; - Understand this, and act accordingly. Amen."

54,11. And Seth rose promptly and in great friendliness stretched out his arms to the twelve.

54,12. And when they noticed that the formerly angered father Seth opened his arms to them almost all of them prostrated themselves at his feet asking his forgiveness, for they believed to have angered him through their rash folly.

54,13. But Seth, in his love-rapture, was unable to utter a single word; however, what his tongue temporarily was unable to do, his hands and his breast demonstrated even better, for he diligently with his own hands lifted up one after the other, raising him up in his heart through signs and then pressing him to his breast.

54,14. In this way he actively showed that in reality he had never been angered and that what he had done to them previously he had certainly done only prompted by a higher impulse for the sake of their eternal life's bliss; but, being aware that the twelve might not fully understand his signs, he soon turned to Abedam pointing to his tongue and breast.

54,15. For Seth was afflicted from birth in that whenever his soul was deeply moved he could often not utter a single word for a considerable time.

54,16. And Abedam promptly touched Seth's mouth and breast and said to him: "Seth, I tell you, open your mouth, and your tongue shall never again fail you; and so relieve your heart. Amen."

54,17. And forthwith there flowed from Seth a whole stream of the most glorious words, which sounded forth as follows:

54,18. "O children, O children of the holy Father's love, had I not previously, driven by a just, holy, inner impulse, in louder, stronger sounding words have to turn you away from my heart loving you beyond all measure, truly, my friends, my heart would have devoured you all out of my most ardent love!

54,19. "Children, friends, when you fled before my word referring you to Adam and so hastily ran down from the sacred height, I grieved for you, my children and friends, because you refused to follow my earnest counsel and did not turn to Adam for advice, wherefore you had to climb uphill so laboriously and fearfully!

54,20. "For behold, as long as the dear, holy Father, guided by Adam, had not reached your group as yet, I was troubled, exceedingly troubled in my loving heart about you, my friends and children!

54,21. "But when soon I saw the holy Father so lovingly draw and press you all to His heart, a rock as heavy as the earth suddenly fell from my still aching heart because I had to see you children so sadly flee before me, your loving father.

54,22. "But now let us forget all this. This is what the holy Father wanted; therefore, to Him forever thanks and the purest love of which our hearts are ever capable!

54,23. "And now, children and friends, as I can see, today you have not yet strengthened yourselves with food and drink; so come to these baskets and eat and drink whatever you find there, -- for it is all blessed by the holy Father!

54,24. "Oh come, oh come and take this food for life eternal!"

54,25. And forthwith also Abedam bade them follow Seth's advice.

54,26. And, following Seth to Adam's basket, they joyfully ate and drank from its contents.
