THE QUEEN OF SHEBA AND HER ONLY SON MENYELEK (KEBRA NAGAST)

Translated by Wallis Budge

And He drove him out of the Garden, because of his apostasy through the sin of the Serpent and the plotting of the Devil. And at that sorrowful moment Cain was born, and when Adam saw that the face of Cain was ill-tempered and his appearance evil he was sad. And then Abel was born, and when Adam saw that his appearance was good and his face good-tempered he said, <This is my son, the heir of my kingdom.> (…) Cain was envious, first because of the words of his father; and secondly, because of his sister with the beautiful face, who was born with him and who had been given unto Abel, even as God commanded them to multiply and fill the earth – now the face of the sister who had been born with Abel resembled that of Cain [quantos gêmeos cruzados nesta historieta!], and their father had transferred the two sisters when giving them in marriage; – and thirdly, because when the two brothers offered up sacrifice, God accepted the offering of Abel and rejected the offering of Cain. (…) And having killed his brother, Cain fell into a state of trembling and horrible fright, and he was repulsed by his father and his Lord. And then Seth was born, and Adam looked upon him and said, <Now hath God shown compassion upon me, and He hath given unto me the light of my face. In sorrowful remembrance I will console myself (?) with him. The name of him that shall slay my heir shall be blotted out, even to his ninth generation.Que espécie de livro não é entendido nem pelos próprios tradutores?

the sons of Cain ate, drank and danced, and they played upon stringed instruments, and sang lewd songs thereto, and they worked uncleanness without law, without measure, and without rule.” E eles introduziram a semente do burro na égua, e a mula nasceu, o que Deus não comandou. E no meio de todas essas coisas, o homem se poluiu com o homem, e a mulher trabalhou com a mulher na coisa abominável.

Segundo o Segundo Pacto que Deus fez com Noé, após o Dilúvio, não haveria novo Dilúvio, mas nascera aí a distinção Outono-Primavera, Primavera-Outono.

Though heaven and earth pass away My word shall not pass away.”

Deus, o Bipolar

Deus criou Zion; o útero de Maria criou Deus.

Canaã, o neto de Noé, quebrou o pacto, e não Shem (seu pai). “And in later days God took vengeance upon the sons of Canaan, and made the sons of Shem to inherit their country.”

And they slaughtered their sons and their daughters to the devils” Que ironia.

Abraão é o nono descendente de Canaã. Seu pai se chamava Terah.

Numa chuva de fiel, no meu colo cai herético, pecado e ignomínia.

And I will bring down the Tabernacle of My Convenant upon the earth 7 generations after thee”

Antes havia para onde viajar e se tornar rei. Hoje o Oeste já foi desvelado e é só repetição.

Isaque e Jacó são irrelevantes na “historiografia”.

Gênesis 35:22-27: “Quando Israel habitava naquela terra, foi Rúben e deitou-se com Bila, concubina de seu pai; e Israel o soube. Eram doze os filhos de Jacó: Os filhos de Léia: Rúben o primogênito de Jacó, depois Simeão, Levi, Judá, Issacar e Zebulom; os filhos de Raquel: José e Benjamim; os filhos de Bila, serva de Raquel: Dã e Naftali; os filhos de Zilpa, serva de Léia: Gade e Aser. Estes são os filhos de Jacó, que lhe nasceram em Padã-Arã. Jacó veio a seu pai Isaque, a Manre, a Quiriate-Arba, onde peregrinaram Abraão e Isaque” Não se dão 1000 anos de perdão para quem torna corno aquele que corneou?

Judá viria da raiz etíope da palavra, que quer dizer “ladrão”. “and although he [Rubem] was the firstborn son the kingdom was rent from him. And his younger brother reigned, and he was called Judah because of this.”

and He opened to them salvation. And he spake with them from the pillar of cloud

And again he saith by the mouth of the Holy Ghost, <And My habitation is here, for I have chosen it.>”

The Emperor of Rôm [Constantinopla] is the son of Solomon, and the Emperor of Ethiopia is the firstborn and eldest son of Solomon.”

Mt. 12:42//Lc. 11:31: “A rainha do sul se levantará no juízo com esta geração, e a condenará; porque veio dos confins da terra para ouvir a sabedoria de Salomão. E eis aqui quem é maior do que Salomão.”

Now in the days of Solomon the King gold was as common as bronze, and silver as lead, and bronze and lead and iron were as abundant as the grass of the fields and the reeds of the desert and cedarwood was also abundant.”

for wisdom is far better than treasure of gold and silver, and wisdom is the best of everything that hath been created on the earth. Now unto what under the heavens shall wisdom be compared? It is sweeter than honey, and it maketh one to rejoice more than wine, and it illumineth more than the sun, and it is to be loved more than precious stones. And it fatteneth more than oil, and it satisfieth more than dainty meats, and it giveth more renown than thousands of gold and silver. (…) it is a teacher of those who are learned, and it is a consoler of those who are discreet and prudent, and it giveth fame to those who seek after it. (…) no man can filch [surrupiar] it from his heart. That which fools heap up the wise consume.” Queen Mâkedâ, um dos nomes da Rainha do Sabá ou dos Sabeus [diferente da Etiópia – note como as versões conflituam o tempo todo], que quer dizer “Not thus”, “Não assim”, “Não deste modo”, assinalando a mudança do politeísmo e paganismo primitivo à Verdadeira Religião (cof, cof).

So she made ready to set out. And 797 camels were loaded, and mules and asses innumerable were loaded, and she set out on her journey and followed her road without pause, and her heart had confidence in God.”

And thou, although thou dost not know the God is Israel, hast this wisdom which thou hast made to grow in thine heart”

And this speech of mine springeth not from myself, but I give utterance only to what He maketh me to utter.”

I am a man and dust and ashes, who tomorrow will become worms and corruption, and yet at this moment I appear like one who will never die.”

As is his death is my death; and as is his life is my life. Yet this man is stronger to work than I am”

We worship the sun according as our fathers have taught us to do, because we say that the sun is the king of the gods; some worship stones, and some worship wood, and some worship carved figures, and some worship images of gold and silver. And we worship the sun, for he cooked our food, and moreover, he illumned the darkness, and removed fear; we call him <Our King>, and we call him <Our Creator>, and we worship him as our god; for no man had told us that beside him there is another god. But we have heard that there is with you, Israel, another God Whom we do not know”

No one can chide Him, for He is the Lord of the Universe, and there is no one who can say unto Him, <What hast Thou done?>”

(and it was not only human beings who came to him, but the wild animals and the birds used to come to him and hearken unto his voice, and hold converse with him)”

A woman of such splendid beauty had come to me from the ends of the earth! What do I know? Will God give me seed in her?”

I Rs. 11:1-2: “Ora, o rei Salomão amou muitas mulheres estrangeiras, além da filha de Faraó: moabitas, amonitas, edomitas, sidônias e hetéias, das nações de que o Senhor dissera aos filhos de Israel: Não ireis para elas, nem elas virão para vós; doutra maneira perverterão o vosso coração para seguirdes os seus deuses. A estas se apegou Salomão, levado pelo amor.”

A diferença das partes não altera o produto: “And he had 400 queens and 600 concubines. Now this which he did was not for fornication, but as a result of the wise intent that God had given unto him, and his remembering that God had said unto Abraham, <I will make thy seed like the stars of heaven for number, and like the sand of the sea.> And Solomon said in his heart, <What do I know? Peradventure God will give me ten children from each one of these women. My children shall inherit the cities of the enemy, and shall destroy those who worship idols.>”

to those after Christ, it was given to live with one woman under the law of marriage. And the Apostles laid down for them an ordinance: <as concerning Solomon no law had been laid down for him in respect of women, and no blame can be imputed to him in respect of marrying many wives. But for those who believe, the law and the command have been given that they shall not marry many wives, even as Paul saith, ‘Those who marry many wives seek their own punishment. He who marrieth one wife hath no sin.’ [I Corinthians, VII]>”

Lv. 18:18: “E não tomarás uma mulher juntamente com sua irmã, durante a vida desta, para tornar-lha rival, descobrindo a sua nudez ao lado da outra.”

And they destroyed His light and cast themselves upon Him and they set a guard over His tomb wherein they had cast Him. And He came forth where they did not look for Him, and illumined the whole world, more especially the First Sea and the Last Sea, Ethiopia and Rôm. And He paid no heed whatsoever to Israel, and He ascended His former throne.”

And he gave her whatsoever she wished, everything on which great store was set in the country of Ethiopia, and camels and wagons, 6000 in number, which were laden with beautiful things of the most desirable kind, and wagons wherein loads were carried over the desert, and a vessel wherein one could travel over the sea, and a vessel wherein one could traverse the air (or winds) [!], which Solomon had made by the wisdom that God had given unto him.

and she brought forth a man child, and she gave it to the nurse with great pride and delight.” “And the child grew and she called his name Bayna-Lehkem. And the child reached the age of 12 years, and he asked his friends among the boys who were being educated with him, and said unto them, <Who is my father?> And they said unto him, <Solomon the King.> And he went to the Queen his mother, and said unto her, <O Queen, make me to know who is my father.> And the Queen spake unto him angrily, wishing to frighten him so that he might not desire to go, <Why dost thou ask me about thy father? I am thy father and thy mother; seek not to know any more.> (…) And a second time, and a third time he asked her, and he importuned her to tell him. One day, she told him, <His country is far away, and the road thither is very difficult; wouldst thou not rather be here?> And the youth Bayna-Lehkem was handsome, and his whole body and his members, and the bearing of his shoulders resembled those of King Solomon his father, and his eyes, and his legs, and his whole gait [porte] resembled those of Solomon the King.”

At. 8:26-39: “Mas um anjo do Senhor falou a Filipe, dizendo: Levanta-te, e vai em direção do sul pelo caminho que desce de Jerusalém a Gaza, o qual está deserto. E levantou-se e foi; e eis que um etíope, eunuco, mordomo-mor de Candace [Mâkedâ], rainha dos etíopes, o qual era superintendente de todos os seus tesouros e tinha ido a Jerusalém para adorar, regressava e, sentado no seu carro, lia o profeta Isaías. Disse o Espírito a Filipe: Chega-te e ajunta-te a esse carro. E correndo Filipe, ouviu que lia o profeta Isaías, e disse: Entendes, porventura, o que estás lendo? Ele respondeu: Pois como poderei entender, se alguém não me ensinar? e rogou a Filipe que subisse e com ele se sentasse. Ora, a passagem da Escritura que estava lendo era esta: Foi levado como a ovelha ao matadouro, e, como está mudo o cordeiro diante do que o tosquia, assim ele não abre a sua boca. Na sua humilhação foi tirado o seu julgamento; quem contará a sua geração? porque a sua vida é tirada da terra. Respondendo o eunuco a Filipe, disse: Rogo-te, de quem diz isto o profeta? de si mesmo, ou de algum outro? Então Filipe tomou a palavra e, começando por esta escritura, anunciou-lhe Jesus. E indo eles caminhando, chegaram a um lugar onde havia água, e disse o eunuco: Eis aqui água; que impede que eu seja batizado? [E disse Felipe: é lícito, se crês de todo o coração. E, respondendo ele, disse: Creio que Jesus Cristo é o Filho de Deus.] mandou parar o carro, e desceram ambos à água, tanto Filipe como o eunuco, e Filipe o batizou. Quando saíram da água, o Espírito do Senhor arrebatou a Filipe, e não o viu mais o eunuco, que jubiloso seguia o seu caminho.”

His eyes are gladsome, like unto those of a man who hath drunk wine” “in those days Solomon had no children, except a boy who was 7 years old and whose name was Îyôrbe’âm (Rehoboam).”

[De 1000 esposas, Deus só lhe deu] 3 filhos. Seu filho mais velho era o Rei da Etiópia, o filho da Rainha da Etiópia, e era o primogênito daquele com que Deus falou profeticamente, <Deus jurou perante Davi o justo, e não se arrepende, ‘Do fruto do teu corpo eu vou fazer sentar de novo em teu trono’>”

I Co. 1:20-31: “Onde está o sábio? Onde o escriba? Onde o questionador deste século? Porventura não tornou Deus louca a sabedoria deste? Visto como na sabedoria de Deus o mundo pela sua sabedoria não conheceu a Deus, aprouve a Deus salvar pela loucura da pregação os que crêem. Pois, enquanto os judeus pedem sinal, e os gregos buscam sabedoria, nós pregamos a Cristo crucificado, que é escândalo para os judeus, e loucura para os gregos, mas para os que são chamados, tanto judeus como gregos, Cristo, poder de Deus, e sabedoria de Deus. Porque a loucura de Deus é mais sábia que os homens; e a fraqueza de Deus é mais forte que os homens. Ora, vede, irmãos, a vossa vocação, que não são muitos os sábios segundo a carne, nem muitos os poderosos, nem muitos os nobres que são chamados. Pelo contrário, Deus escolheu as coisas confundir os sábios; e Deus escolheu as coisas fracas do mundo para confundir as fortes; e Deus escolheu as coisas ignóbeis do mundo, e as desprezadas, e as que não são, para reduzir a nada as que são; para que nenhum mortal se glorie na presença de Deus. Mas vós sois dele, em Cristo Jesus, o qual para nós foi feito por Deus sabedoria, e justiça, e santificação, e redenção; para que, como está escrito: Aquele que se gloria, glorie-se no Senhor.”

Besides travailing with him and suckling him, what else had a woman to do with a son? A daughter belonged to the mother, and a boy to the father. God cursed Eve, saying, <Bring forth children in anguish and with sorrow of heart, and after thy bringing forth shall take place thy return to thy husband. As for this my son, I will not give him to the Queen, but I will make him king over Israel.”

For no man hated the place where he was born, and everyone loved the things of his native country.”

Since thou speakest in this wise, according to the law I myself am not the son of my father David, for he took the wife of another man whom he caused to be slain in battle, and he begot me by her; but God is compassionate and He had forgiven him. Who is wickeder and more foolish than men? and who is as compassionate and as wise as God? God had made me of my father, and thee had He made of me, according to His Will. And as for thee, O my son, thou fearer of our Lord God, do not violence to the face of thy father, so that in times to come thou mayest not meet with violence from him that shall go forth from thy loins, and that thy seed may prosper upon the earth. My son Rehoboam is a boy 6 years old, and thou art my firstborn son, and thou hast come to reign, and to lift up the spear of him that begot thee. Behold, I have been reigning for 29 years, and thy mother came to me in the 7th year of my kingdom; and please God, He shall make me to attain to the span of the days of my father. And when I shall be gathered to my fathers, thou shalt sit upon my throne, and thou shalt reign in my stead, and the elders of Israel shall love thee exceedingly; and I will make a marriage for thee, and I will give thee as many queens and concubines as thou desirest. And thou shalt be blessed in this land of inheritance with the blessing that God gave unto our fathers, even as He covenanted with Noah His servant, and with Abraham His friend, and the righteous men their descendants after them down to David my father. Thou seest me, a weak man, upon the throne of my fathers, and thou shalt be like myself after me, and thou shalt judge nations without number, and families that cannot be counted.” “Now Balt.âsôr, the King of Rôm, wished that I would give my son to his daughter, and to make him with his daughter king over the whole country of Rôm. For besides her he had no other child, and he had sworn that he will only make king a man who is of the seed of David my father. And if we rule there we shall be 3 kings. And Rehoboam shall reign here over Israel. For thus said the prophecy of David my father <The seed of Solomon shall become 3 heads of kingdoms upon the earth.>”

It is meet and right that thy dominion of Ethiopia shall be from the River of Egypt to the west of the sun (i.e., to the setting sun); blessed be thy seed upon the earth – and from Shoa to the east of India”

I the Lord thy God am a jealous God. I am He Who visited the sin of the father on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, and I perform mercy to a thousand, to ten thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.” “Observa o dia do Sabá e santifica-o, assim como o Senhor teu Deus comandou. Por seis dias deves fazer o teu trabalho, e no sétimo dia, o Sabá do Senhor teu Deus, tu não deves fazer trabalho algum, nem tu mesmo, nem teu filho, nem tua filha, nem teu burro nem tua mula, nem qualquer besta, nem o estranho que mora contigo. Porque em seis dias Deus fez os céus e a terra, e o mar e tudo que neles se encontra, e descansou no sétimo dia, e por isso Deus abençoou este sétimo dia e o declarou livre de todo trabalho.”

And they cursed the King secretly and reviled him because he had seized their sons against their will.”

Os primogênitos “extraditados” pela Vontade do Senhor planejaram o roubo do Tabernáculo para levá-lo consigo à Etiópia. A paródia do seqüestro de Helena: “I would offer up a sacrifice to the holy city Jerusalem, and to my Lady Zion, the holy and heavenly Tabernacle of the Law of God.” “And had it not been that God willed it Zion could not have been taken away forthwith.”

and they were then even as they were when God slew the firstborn of Egypt.” “the dogs howled, and the asses screamed, and all those who were left there mingled their tears together.” “From this moment our glory had passed away, and our kingdom had been carried off unto a strange people who know not God, even as the prophet said, <The people who have not sought Me have found Me.>” “I will turn My face away from thee because thou hast treated My offerings with contempt, and hast preferred thy sons to Me.”

the sons of the warriors of Israel saw that they had come in one day a distance of thirteen days’ march, and that they were not tired, or hungry, or thirsty, neither man nor beast”

And there was joy to the Sea of Eritrea, and to the people of Ethiopia, who went forth to the sea and rejoiced exceedingly, and with a greater joy than did Israel when they came out of Egypt.”

Verily the sun that appeared unto me long ago when I was sleeping with the Queen of Ethiopia was the symbol of the holy Zion.”

and they were swifter than the eagles that are in the sky”

And thou, O King, whose wisdom had no counterpart under the heavens, why hast thou given away the Tabernacle of the Law of the Lord thy God, which thy fathers kept pure for thee?”

Os lamentos salomônicos (os antípodas dos Cânticos?): “Our name was honoured, to-day it is nothing. Woe be unto us!”

E quando os Filisteus guerrearam com Saul o Rei, Saul foi sobrepujado e morreu com Jônâthân seu filho. E aqueles de seus filhos que restaram quiseram levar o Tabernáculo (Sião), ao saberem que seu pai e irmão mais velho estavam mortos. (…) Mas era impossível levar Sião embora sem que ela quisesse e Deus quisesse.” “quando seu pai [Davi] reinou com justeza sobre Israel ele a levou da cidade de Samaria e trouxe a arca para Jerusalém, dançando sobre seus pés diante dela, batendo palmas por conta de sua imensa alegria”

And Solomon lived for eleven years after the taking away of Zion from him, and then his heart turned aside from the love of God, and he forgot his wisdom, through his excessive love of women. And he loved very greatly the daughter of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, whose name was Mâkshârâ, and he brought her into the house wich he had made; and there were figures of the sun, moon, and stars in the roof thereof, and it was illumined by night as brightly as by day. Its beams were made os brass, and its roof of silver (…) and its floor was of blocks of sapphire stone and sardius.” “And she multiplied her sacrifices, and her worship, and her folly, according to the stupidity of the Egyptians” “and she spoke to him with honeyed words, and with the tender speech of women, and with the sweet smile that accompanied the presentment of an evil deed, and with the turning of the face and the assumption of a look of good intent, and with the noddling of the head. With actions of this kind she caused his heart to turn away from his good intent, and she enticed him to the evil of her work, wishing to drag him down into the folly of the foolish service of idols through carelessness. And as the deep sea drawed down into its depths the man who cannot swim, until the water overwhelmed him and destroyed his life, even so did that woman wish to submerge Solomon the King.”

Thy son had carried away thy Lady Zion, thy son whom thou hast begotten, who springed from an alien people into which God had not commanded you to marry, that is to say, from an Ethiopian woman, who is not of thy colour, and is not akin to thy country, and who is, moreover, black.”

And thy kin is her kin, for ye are all the children of Ham. And God, having destroyed of the seed of Ham 7 kings, had made us to inherit this city, that we and our seed after us may dwell therein for ever. And as concerning Zion, the will of God had been performed, and He had given her unto them so that they may worship her. And as for me, I will neither sacrifice to nor worship thine idols, and I will not perform thy wish.” “Who was wiser than Solomon? yet he was seduced by a woman. Who was more righteous than David? yet he was seduced by a woman. Who was stronger than Samson? yet he was seduced by a woman. Who was handsomer than ‘Amnôn? yet he was seduced by Tamar the daughter of David his father. And Adam was the first creation of God, yet he was seduced by Eve his wife. And through that seduction death was created for every created thing.”

Come now, and consider, which was the greater of the two, the sin of his father David or the sin of his son Solomon? David caused Uriah to be slain in battle by means of a plan of deceit so that he might take his wife Bêrsâbêh (Bathsheba), the mother of Solomon; and he repented, and God had compassion on him, And when he was dying he advised his son Solomon, saying, <Kill Joab as he killed ‘Amêr (Abner), and kill Shimei because he cursed me>; and he performed the will of his father and slew them after the death of David his father. And Solomon killed no one except his brother when he wished to marry the Samênâwât, a sulamita, the wife of his father David whose name was ‘Abîs (Abishag).”

De acordo com a interpretação da profecia, o nome Salomão significava na língua secreta <Cristo>. E como Salomão construiu a casa de Deus, Cristo encarnou em Seu Corpo e consubstanciou a Igreja. E quando Ele disse aos Judeus, <Deitem abaixo esta casa, e em 3 dias eu a erguerei novamente> [João 2:19], Ele estava falando da casa que era Seu Corpo. E como Salomão multiplicou mulheres de povos forasteiros devido a sua beleza e charme, e o desejo o consumiu, assim mesmo Cristo reuniu rebanhos de gentios que não conheciam a Lei, mas que acreditavam Nele. E não havia incircuncisos para Ele, nenhum pagão; e não havia escravo, e nenhum judeu, e nenhum servo e nenhum homem livre [Gálatas 3:28]; Ele os juntou todos em Seu reino celeste através de Sua Carne e Sangue. E no Cântico dos Cânticos o próprio Salomão cantou e disse, <Há 60 homens poderosos em torno da cama de Salomão, todos treinados na guerra e possuindo espadas, cada homem com sua espada à destra> [Cânticos 3:7-8]. O número de 60 indicava o número dos Patriarcas virtuosos, e dos Profetas, e dos Apóstolos, e dos Mártires, e dos Crentes, e dos Santos, e dos Monges que resistiram aos pensamentos maus e à guerra de Satã. E a palavra <espada> é, sendo analisada, a palavra das Escrituras. A palavra do Senhor corta com sua lâmina afiada, e desta mesma maneira as Escrituras também cortam dos corações dos homens os perigos causados pelos sonhos fantasiosos da madrugada. E as palavras <cama de Salomão> são, se analisadas, a Igreja de Cristo.”

Elias e Eliseu sabiam a verdade, e inscreveram os pecados de Salomão no Livro dos Reis para envergonhar os Judeus, que são cegos de coração e os inimigos da virtude.”

Salomão, Rei e Profeta, nos legou 4 livros de profecias” Viveu 60 anos, 20 a menos que seu pai Davi.

Mas a tolice de Deus é mais sábia que a sabedoria dos homens, e Ele te deu apenas 3 filhos: um que levou-lhe a glória para uma terra desconhecida, estabelecendo a morada do Senhor na Etiópia; outro que é coxo do pé, que deverá sentar em teu trono para os de Israel, o filho da raça de tua raça de Tarbâna, da casa de Judá; e por último aquele que é filho de uma mulher grega, uma faxineira, que nos últimos dias destruirá Roboão e toda sua linhagem de Israel; e toda essa terra será dele, porque ele acredita n’Aquele que virá, o Salvador. Mas a tribo de Roboão, e daqueles que restaram em Israel, O crucificará, Àquele que há de vir, o Redentor, e sua memória deverá ser extirpada da terra. Porque eles tramarão um plano que não poderão concluir, e Ele se zangará com eles e obliterará a sua memória.”

Salomão sofrerá no Seol até seu Filho ir buscá-lo. “E como Moisés afogou o Faraó com os egípcios no Mar da Eritréia, também o Salvador afogará Satanás e seus demônios no Seol; porque o mar é para ser tido pelo Seol, e o Faraó por Satanás, e suas hostes egípcias pelos demônios.” “E como Josué massacrou os Reis de Canaã, o Salvador massacrará as sete cabeças de ‘Iblîs.”

Davi seria um sétimo filho, segundo o Kebra Nagast original. Mas uma nota de rodapé desmente: foi o oitavo. E Salomão o sexto.

Conclui-se do conceito de Seol dos hebreus e deste K.N. que o Inferno já deveria ter sido destruído e todos nós redimidos… Aforismo de sabedoria condensada (supercondensação estilo Big Bang): Se a História tivesse de ter um fim, Pôncio Pilatos seria seu Autor… Esse fato de per se comprova a existência do Inconsciente. Território iníquo inato da maldade.

O primeiro Schopenhauer: “Of what use are we who are men? We are created in vain, and after a little time we become as if we had never been created.” “O quê então? Multiplicar a fala é sem propósito, e a nobreza da estatura é destruída, e a força dos reis é pulverizada (…) Depois de 3 gerações de nossas crianças, não há quem lembre nosso nome.”

They called Rehoboam <King of Judah>, and they called the King of Samaria <King of Israel>. And of the generations of Rehoboam, from Rehoboam to ‘Îyâkêm (Joachim) were 41 generations.”

And the name of Esau’s kingdom was called, according to his name of contempt, <Edom>, for the interpretation of <Edom> is <lentiles>”

Como Salomão o sábio disse, <Há 3 coisas que são difíceis para minha mente, e a quarta delas eu não posso conceber: – O rastro da águia nos céus, a trilha da serpente na rocha, a trilha do navio no mar.> E a quarta coisa de que ele falava concernia à mulher má, que, tento traído seu marido, e se lavado, sentava como uma santa que nada tinha feito de errado, e jurava falsamente.”

A lenda do nascimento de Nabucodonosor: a criança fruto de um adultério; mas, aparentemente destinado a ser jogado no rio ao nascer, o filho bastardo de um mercador acaba sendo criado em berço real. Nabudonosor significa pelos auspícios do pássaro. “ele era extremamente arrogante e costumava dizer <Eu faço o sol brilhar no céu>; e idolatrava ídolos.”

Ló, não se vire depois de sair da cidade, não volte as costas se não quiser morrer”, disse o Anjo do Senhor. Mas a esposa de Ló se virou, e virou sal. Isso foi antes de Ló se recolher às montanhas como eremita e enrabar suas filhas.

E Noé estava bêbado e nu perante sua mulher e filhos, e amaldiçoou seu filho quando este riu-lhe; e o ter dormido com sua filha não foi reconhecido como pecado de Ló, uma vez que ele o fez inconscientemente, embriagado.”

E então Dalîlâ (Delilah) concebeu de Sansão, e enquanto ela estava grávida Sansão morreu com os Filisteus; e Dalila deu a luz a um filho que chamou <Menahem>, que quer dizer <semente do homem forte>.”

Dalila e sua irmã Maksâbâ, ambas viúvas, eram belas, e se amavam muito. E seu amor não era como o amor de irmãs, mas como o da mãe pelo filho, e do filho pela mãe. E viveram juntas. Maksâbâ foi a única sobrevivente do massacre de Sansão, e por isso reinou sobre os Filisteus.” Seus filhos cresceram juntos como irmãos, mas o filho de Sansão, o caçula, assassinou o Rei dos Filisteus, aos 15.

Eu ouvi dizer que os hábitos dos egípcios são sem-lei, e que eles vivem em idolatria e fornicação. E quando te virem, vão tramar contra mim, e me matar por causa da excelência de tua bela forma; porque entre eles não há quem se compare a ti. Para que salves minha vida, fala por favor, se acontecer de perguntarem-te coisas sobre mim, <Sou a irmã dele>, e então quem sabe os estranhos pouparão minha alma da morte.” Abraão

Deixe que Ishmael viva perante Mim, e farei dele uma grande nação, e ele deverá possuir 12 nações e reinar sobre todas elas. Mas eu vou estabelecer Meu Pacto com Isaac Meu servo, o filho de Sara, que será com todas as nações da Terra.>” El Hayek realmente gosta de aproveitar apenas o estritamente conveniente de suas queridas histórias…

And therefore the children of Ishmael became kings over Tereb, and over Kebet, and over Nôbâ, and Sôba, and Kuergue, and Kîfî, and Mâkâ and Môrnâ, and Fînkânâ, and Arsîbânâ, and Libâ, and Mase’a, for they were the seed of Shem. And Isaac reigned over Judah and over Amôrêwôn, and over Kêtêwôn, and Îyabûsêwôn, and Fêrzêwôn, and Eêwêwôn, and Kêkêdewôn, and Rômyâ, and Ansôkyâ (Antiochia), and Sôryâ (Syria), and Armenia, and Felesteêm (Palestine), And Ethiopia, and Edom, and Philistia, and Îyôâb, and Amalek, and Phrygia, and Babylon, and Yônânest, and Ebrâyast. For as God sware He gave all kingdoms to the seed of Shem, and an exalted throne and dominion to the seed of Shem, even as his father Noah, by the word of God, blessed his son Shem, saying, <Be lord to thy brethren and reign over them.>”

And the Queen said unto her nobles: <Speak ye now, and swear ye by the heavenly Zion that ye will not make women queens or set them upon the throne of the kingdom of Ethiopia, and that no one except the male seed of David, the son of Solomon the King, shall ever reign over Ethiopia, and that ye will never make women queens.[!]>” “E se depois desse dia for achado qualquer homem que observe todos os seus costumes antigos, sua casa será pilhada, e ele e sua esposa e suas crianças deverão ser condenados.”

And thus the eastern boundary of the kingdom of the King of Ethiopia is the beginning of the city of Gâzâ in the land of Judah, that is, Jerusalem; and its boundary is the Lake of Jericho, and it passed on by the coast of its sea to Lêbâ and Sâbâ; and its boundary goes down to Bîsîs and ‘Asnêt; and its boundary is the Sea of the Blacks and Naked Men [?], and goes up Mount Kêbêrênêyôn into the Sea of Darkness, that is to say, the place where the sun setted and its boundary extended to Fênê’êl and Lasîfâlâ and its borders are the lands near the Garden (Paradise)”

David waged war wheresoever he pleased; no man conquered him, on the contrary, whosoever attacked him was conquered. (…) This I found among the manuscripts of the Church of Sophia in Rôm/Constantinople.”

He performed many miracles, some of which are written down and some of which are not, even as said John the Evangelist, the son of Zebedee”

Moses spake unto God and said, <Shew me Thy Face.> And God said unto Moses, <No one can look upon My Face and live, but only as in a mirror. Turn thy face to the west and thou shalt see in the rock the mirroring of My Face.> And when Moses saw the shadow of the Face of God, his own face shone with a brightness which was 7x brighter than the sun, and the light was so strong that the children of Israel could not look upon his face except through a veil. And thereupon he saw that they did not desire to look upon the Face of God”

E quando Abraão levou seu filho Isaque ao Monte Carmelo, Deus enviou do paraíso um carneiro para a redenção de Isaque. (…) Abraão deve ser entendido como Deus o Pai, e Isaque como um símbolo de Cristo o Filho.”

And the daughters of Cain with whom the angels had companied conceived, but they were unable to bring forth their children, and they died. And of the children who were in their wombs, some died, and some came forth; having split open the bellies of their mothers they came forth by their navels. And when they were grown up and reached man’s estate they became giants, whose height reached unto the clouds”

I was with Daniel in the den, and I was with Jonah in the belly of the great fish, and I was with Joseph in the pit, and I was with Jeremiah in the well fed from the lake. I stand under the deepest deep so that the mountains may not sink down under the waters”

A estranha autobiografia: “Wearied and miserable, they made Him sad when they rejected Him and hated Him; but strong and glorious, what could sadden Him when they brought false charges against Him? For He Himself knew His Godhead, and He knew His glory, and He new Himself.”

And in it is the throne of the Most High, which is surrounded with fire, and 4 beasts bear it in their place, which is the 6th heaven. And a throne goeth up to the 7th heaven, the habitation of the Father”

O que aconteceria se Abraão fosse contemporâneo de Jesus Cristo e testemunha na praça do Gólgota? Aliás, suponha que Abraão fosse José de Jesus…

Nenhum livro religioso faz a apologia do tempo presente nem é best-seller imediato.

when Nectanebus II, the last native king of Egypt, fled from Egypt he went to Macedon, where he established himself as a magician. Here he became acquainted with Queen Olympias, who wished to find out from him if her husband, Philip, intended to put her away. An intimacy sprang up between Nectanebus and Olympias, and he appeared to the queen one night in the form of the god Amen of Libya, arrayed in all the attributes of the god, and begot Alexander the Great. Tradition transferred the horns of Amen to Alexander, and ancient Arab writers call Alexander <Dhu’l-Karnên>, i.e. <provided with two horns>, a title that translates exactly one of the titles of Amen, <Sept abui>.”

The Tabernacle of the Law had much in common with the arks or divine tabernacles of the Babylonians and Egyptians, which formed the places of abode of figures of gods or their most characteristic emblems.” “The Ark of the Law which Menyelek [David Son or Grandson] covered and stole from the Temple of Jerusalem was probably a copy of that made by Moses, and to all intents and purposes it was a rectangular box, made of hard wood plated with gold, and measuring about 4ft. long, 2ft. 6inc. wide, and 2ft. 6in. deep. It was provided with a cover upon which rested the Mercy seat and figures of the Cherubim.”

Apologies: “A full discussion of every portion of the work, with extracts giving the original texts of the authorities used and quoted by Isaac [o copista ou inspirado a escrever o Kebra Nagast], would fill another volume, and the cost of printing, paper, and binding is now so great that the idea of producing such a book has been abandoned.”

Os portugueses foram os primeiros europeus a descobrir o Kebra Nagast, no século XVI. Destaca-se o papel dos jesuítas, os historiadores mais capacitados do período.

reference may be made here to a series of chapters which try to prove that the kings of the Moabites, Philistines, Egyptians, Persians, Babylonians and the Byzantines, are of Semitic origin. The fantastic legends which the author invented or reproduced contain much falsified history and bad philology, but it would be interesting to know their source and their author; these chapters seem to suggest that he was a Semite, probably a Jew.”

And when the mother of this Queen was with child of her she saw a fat and handsome-looking goat, and she looked upon him with greedy desire, and said, <How handsome the beast is! And how handsome its feet are!> And she longed for it after the manner of women who are with child. And when the afore-mentioned daughter was fashioned completely in the womb of her mother, she had onefoot like the foot of a man and another like the foot of a goat. (…) she did not want to marry any man because of her malformed foot; and she continued in her virginity until she began to reign.” Depois Salomão teria curado sua perna sem dificuldades e a revertido à forma natural (antropomórfica). Ou não seria uma mulher (ainda mais rainha) uma loba em pele de cordeira? PIN-PON! Versão alcorânica menos lisonjeira: “Jalâl ad-Dîn says that Solomon thought of marrying Balkîs [Makeda], but could not bring himself to do so because of the hair on her feet and legs. The devils who were always in attendance on Soloom removed the hair by the use of some infernal depilatory, but it is doubtful if even then Solomon married her.”

A Conquista da África pelos Vândalos

“the terrible Genseric [Gizericus]; a name, which, in the destruction of the Roman empire, has deserved an equal rank with the names of Alaric and Attila. The king of the Vandals [território espanhol] is described to have been of a middle stature, with a lameness in one leg, which he had contracted by an accidental fall from his horse. His slow and cautious speech seldom declared the deep purposes of his soul”

 

Abraão teria nascido em 2015 a.C. Quem segue seu calendário está em 4032 d.A.

 

“and the fair complexions of the blue-eyed warriors of Germany [vândalos] formed a very singular contrast with the swarthy [trigueiro] or olive hue which is derived from the neighborhood of the torrid zone [mouros].” Aqui devemos acrescentar os importantes parênteses: no caso específico dos “genseritas”, eram guerreiros cristianizados; no entanto, sua “cruzada pessoal” africana não era religiosa, e podia contar com aliados pagãos ou heresiarcas; e ajudou a ruir o Grande Império do Resíduo Católico.

 

“the calendar of martyrs received on both sides a considerable augmentation.” Belo eufemismo.

 

No fim da vida Santo Agostinho se tornou piedoso e deixou de combater belicamente cismáticos como os masdeístas ou maniqueus. O “santo” se demonstrava bastante ativo em termos de correspondência política (principalmente na tentativa de dissuadir qualquer confronto letal entre cristãos).

 

“Careless of the distinctions of age, or sex, or rank, they employed every species of indignity and torture, to force from the captives a discovery of their hidden wealth. The stern policy of Genseric justified his frequent examples of military execution: he was not always the master of his own passions, or of those of his followers; and the calamities of war were aggravated by the licentiousness of the Moors, and the fanaticism of the Donatists [ordem de padres excomungados].”

 

A África, próspero continente que alimentava a megalópole da Antiguidade Roma com trigo a perder de vista, começou a parecer o cenário desolado que é hoje muito também devido a lendas e exagerações cristãs, que depreciavam o trabalho dos Vândalos na conquista da região e até lhes atribuíam a deliberada falta de assepsia e “empilhamento arbitrário de cadáveres” que gerava pestes negras em cada cidade dominada…

 

“The youth of Augustin had been stained by the vices and errors which he so ingenuously [artfully!] confesses; but from the moment of his conversion to that of his death, the manners of the bishop of Hippo were pure and austere: and the most conspicuous of his virtues was an ardent zeal against heretics of every denomination; the Manichaeans, the Donatists, and the Pelagians [“não somos afetados pelo Pecado Original; o livre-arbítrio de cada qual permite chegar de forma autônoma ao Bem Supremo…”], against whom he waged a perpetual controversy. When the city [Hippo], some months after his death, was burnt by the Vandals, the library was [un]fortunately saved, which contained his voluminous writings; 232 separate books or treatises on theological subjects,[*] besides a complete exposition of the psalter and the gospel, and a copious magazine of epistles and homilies. According to the judgment of the most impartial critics, the superficial learning of Augustin was confined to the Latin language; and his style, though sometimes animated by the eloquence of passion, is usually clouded by false and affected rhetoric. But he possessed a strong, capacious, argumentative mind; he boldly sounded the dark abyss of grace, predestination, free will, and original sin; and the rigid system of Christianity which he framed or restored, has been entertained, with public applause, and secret reluctance, by the Latin church.”

 

[*] “Such, at least, is the account of Victor Vitensis (de Persecut. Vandal. 50. 1. 100. 3); though Gennadius seems to doubt whether any person had read, or even collected, all the works of St. Augustin (see Hieronym. Opera, tom. I p. 319, in Catalog. Scriptor. Eccles.). They have been repeatedly printed; and Dupin (Bibliotheque Eccles. tom. III p. 158-257) has given a large and satisfactory abstract of them as they stand in the last edition of the Benedictines. My personal acquaintance with the bishop of Hippo does not extend beyond the Confessions, and the City of God [ao fim e ao cabo as duas obras que realmente importam].

 

Cada vez mais vejo que o verbete do Wikipédia estava repleto de razão: a influência de Gibbon se faz sentir principalmente a partir de suas fantásticas notas de rodapé, cheias de “spoilers” sobre a vida particular das personalidades que cunharam o mundo!

 

“In his early youth (Confess. i. 14) St. Augustin disliked and neglected the study of Greek; and he frankly owns that he read the Platonists in a Latin version, (Confes. vii. 9) Some modern critics have thought that his ignorance of Greek disqualified him from expounding the Scriptures; and Cicero or Quintilian would have required the knowledge of that language in a professor of rhetoric.”

 

The church of Rome has canonized Augustin, and reprobated Calvin. Yet as the real difference between them is invisible even to a theological microscope, the Molinists are oppressed by the authority of the saint, and the Jansenists are disgraced by their resemblance to the heretic. In the mean while, the Protestant Arminians stand aloof, and deride the mutual perplexity of the disputants (see a curious Review of the Controversy, by Le Clerc, Bibliotheque Universelle, tom. XIV pp. 144-398.) Perhaps a reasoner still more independent may smile in his turn, when he peruses an Arminian Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans.”

 

Bonifácio e Aécio, os dois maiores generais de então (e os últimos grandes de Roma), decidiram num duelo o destino da África: ganhou Bonifácio, mas o estrago feito pelo sublevado e amigo dos bárbaros, Aécio, era já irreparável. Cartago, a “capital” africana, cairia em 8 anos. Uma verdadeira Babilônia no coração do continente negro, aliás: “The streets of Carthage were polluted by effeminate wretches, who publicly assumed the countenance, the dress, and the character of women. If a monk appeared in the city, the holy man was pursued with impious scorn and ridicule”

OS SETE DORMINHOCOS

 

“Among the insipid legends of ecclesiastical history, I am tempted to distinguish the memorable fable of the Seven Sleepers; whose imaginary date corresponds with the reign of the younger Theodosius, and the conquest of Africa by the Vandals. When the emperor Decius persecuted the Christians, seven noble youths of Ephesus concealed themselves in a spacious cavern in the side of an adjacent mountain; where they were doomed to perish by the tyrant, who gave orders that the entrance should be firmly secured by a pile of huge stones. They immediately fell into a deep slumber, which was miraculously prolonged without injuring the powers of life, during a period of 187 years. At the end of that time, the slaves of Adolius, to whom the inheritance of the mountain had descended, removed the stones to supply materials for some rustic edifice: the light of the sun darted into the cavern, and the Seven Sleepers were permitted to awake. After a slumber, as they thought of a few hours, they were pressed by the calls of hunger; and resolved that Jamblichus, one of their number, should secretly return to the city to purchase bread for the use of his companions. The youth (if we may still employ that appellation) could no longer recognize the once familiar aspect of his native country; and his surprise was increased by the appearance of a large cross, triumphantly erected over the principal gate of Ephesus. His singular dress, and obsolete language, confounded the baker, to whom he offered an ancient medal of Decius as the current coin of the empire; and Jamblichus, on the suspicion of a secret treasure, was dragged before the judge. Their mutual inquiries produced the amazing discovery, that two centuries were almost elapsed since Jamblichus and his friends had escaped from the rage of a Pagan tyrant. The bishop of Ephesus, the clergy, the magistrates, the people, and, as it is said, the emperor Theodosius himself, hastened to visit the cavern of the Seven Sleepers; who bestowed their benediction, related their story, and at the same instant peaceably expired.

 

The origin of this marvellous fable cannot be ascribed to the pious fraud and credulity of the modern Greeks, since the authentic tradition may be traced within half a century of the supposed miracle. James of Sarug, a Syrian bishop, who was born only two years after the death of the younger Theodosius, has devoted one of his 230 homilies to the praise of the young men of Ephesus. Their legend, before the end of the 6th century, was translated from the Syriac into the Latin language, by the care of Gregory of Tours. The hostile communions of the East preserve their memory with equal reverence; and their names are honorably inscribed in the Roman, the Abyssinian, and the Russian calendar. Nor has their reputation been confined to the Christian world. This popular tale, which Mahomet might learn when he drove his camels to the fairs of Syria, is introduced as a divine revelation, into the Koran. The story of the Seven Sleepers has been adopted and adorned by the nations, from Bengal to Africa, who profess the Mahometan religion; and some vestiges of a similar tradition have been discovered in the remote extremities of Scandinavia. This easy and universal belief, so expressive of the sense of mankind, may be ascribed to the genuine merit of the fable itself. We imperceptibly advance from youth to age, without observing the gradual, but incessant, change of human affairs; and even in our larger experience of history, the imagination is accustomed, by a perpetual series of causes and effects, to unite the most distant revolutions. But if the interval between two memorable aeras could be instantly annihilated; if it were possible, after a momentary slumber of 200 years, to display the new world to the eyes of a spectator, who still retained a lively and recent impression of the old, his surprise and his reflections would furnish the pleasing subject of a philosophical romance.

 

The scene could not be more advantageously placed, than in the two centuries which elapsed between the reigns of Decius and of Theodosius the Younger. During this period, the seat of government had been transported from Rome to a new city on the banks of the Thracian Bosphorus; and the abuse of military spirit had been suppressed by an artificial system of tame and ceremonious servitude. The throne of the persecuting Decius was filled by a succession of Christian and orthodox princes, who had extirpated the fabulous gods of antiquity: and the public devotion of the age was impatient to exalt the saints and martyrs of the Catholic church, on the altars of Diana and Hercules. The union of the Roman empire was dissolved; its genius was humbled in the dust; and armies of unknown Barbarians, issuing from the frozen regions of the North, had established their victorious reign over the fairest provinces of Europe and Africa.” Outras evocações: Schopenhauer, Platão, Vanilla Sky, um coma dentre tantos possíveis, o sonho de criogenia enfermiço de Walt Disney (Baudrillard)…

 

“Two Syriac writers, as they are quoted by Assemanni (Bibliot. Oriental. tom. I pp. 336, 338), place the resurrection of the Seven Sleepers in the year 736 (A.D. 425) or 748 (A.D. 437), of the aera of the Seleucides. Their Greek acts, which Photius had read, assign the date of the 38th year of the reign of Theodosius, which may coincide either with A.D. 439, or 446. The period which had elapsed since the persecution of Decius is easily ascertained; and nothing less than the ignorance of Mahomet, or the legendaries [hagiólogos], could suppose an interval of 300 or 400 years.”
