The Lord said: As a farmer plants wheat in one field, rice in another and flax in a third, so do I, the Lord, inhabit the earth with the seed of man. Neither shall any wise man say: These things came by chance; that one people just happened to settle in Jaffeth (China), another in Vind‘yu (India), and another in Arabin‘ya [Ham, or Africa plus part of Near East; see –ed.]. Such is the argument of my enemies, says the Lord. Not perceiving the wisdom of my work as it happens [as it is unfolding –ed.], they fail to extend judgment into my plans of thousands of years, and so, stubbornly, shut themselves up in ignorance, saying: There is no God.
For I foresaw the breadth of the earth, and that it should be subdued for the glory of man; and in the early days, I divided my armies with wisdom.
To Ham I allotted the foundation of the migratory tribes of the earth. And of the tribes of Ham, behold, I selected many colors of men; through which I foreordained the name Ham to stand as a living testimony to the end of the world. For I foresaw that the time would come when the nations would look back searching for histories of my peoples, and I erected certain words and signs which would be testimony in the later times of earth.
The tribes of Ham were of all colors (black, white, yellow, copper, red and brown); nevertheless, they were I‘hins (Faithists), having flat nails and short arms, and desiring to acquire knowledge. And I brought them to a country of sand fields and with fields of rich pastures interspersed, where lived only a few natives, the dark people, with short hair. Neither did I omit even the hair of the head of man without providing testimony of my word.
I provided testimony of the I‘hins in all the divisions of the earth, with long hair belonging to the tribes that worshipped E-O-IH, so that man of the Kosmon era might perceive that the land from which they (I‘hin ancestors) sprang is not above the water.
Behold the multiple (Yi-ha) language of the tribes of Shem! Side by side with the tribes of Jaffeth I raised them. And, behold, the latter use the derivation of the Panic language to this day.
For I gave to the tribes of these two different lands my ten commandments and ten invocations, not to be written, but to be spoken and taught from mouth to ear, to be sacred in the language given.
In which man shall perceive that the same stories of the egg, and of the origin of evil in the world, could not have been communicated by mortals.
For I locked up enough of the Panic language in Jaffeth as a testimony to be discovered in future years; showing that, unlike Ham and Shem, a mighty nation could retain one language for thousands of years.
For I foresaw that philosophers would try to prove that languages were of mortal origin, and that they would change according to the growth of knowledge among men.
Behold, I gave scriptures to all my people, enjoining some to adhere to the text; and, so, I preserved the work of my hand.
The tribes of Ham were previously ordained with characteristics to make them love to emigrate westward; and the tribes of Jaffeth and Shem with characteristics to make them love to stay within their own countries. And the tribes of Guatama were ordained with characteristics to make them love to go eastward. For I set a boundary to the tribes of Guatama, that they would not reach the ocean on the east.
The Lord said: Having designed Ham for teaching the barbarian world of me and my dominion, I also prepared them so that, through their seed, men and women would have hair neither straight nor short, but long and curled, and red, and white, and brown, by which the genealogy of nations might be traced in future times. ||
Now, nestled in between the three great countries, Jaffeth, Shem and Ham, was located the chief place of the I‘huans, and here they founded a new nation; and the Lord called them Par‘si‘e, signifying, warrior Faithists, because he created them as a shield, to guard his chosen, the I‘hins.
The difference between the I‘huans and the Par‘si‘e was that the I‘huans lived scattered about near the I‘hins, but the Par‘si‘e‘ans lived in a nation by themselves.
Nevertheless, they were all of the same blood and kin, being half-breeds between the I‘hins and the native druks; and they were large, and mostly of the color of new copper.
And because the Par‘si‘e were favored by the Lord, the Lord gave them separate laws, and commanded them not to mix with the druks; which commandment they kept for more than a thousand years.
But in course of time, the Par‘si‘e‘ans were tempted by the druks, and fell from their high estate, and they became cannibals.
And the Lord sent the Ghans to travel in search of his people; and lo and behold, ten tribes of the Lord‘s people were lost in the wilderness; and this was the country of the Par‘si‘e‘ans, and that land was filled with wild goats. From which came the name, LAND OF GOATS.
And the lost tribes, not being flesh eaters, were at a loss for food; and they said: Come, let us live on goat‘s milk.
And they lived like this for a long season, taming the goats, and keeping herds of them. And they roved about, driving their herds with them, for which reason they took the name of SHEPHERD KINGS.
And the Lord looked on them with favor, saying: These that call themselves shepherd kings shall have this country. Behold, out of the seed of these people, I will do mighty wonders.
The Lord said: What man could discover, I, the Lord, left for him to discover; what man could not discover, I, the Lord, taught him.
To the shepherd kings I revealed how to make leather out of skins; nor had man any means of his own to make this discovery. || The shepherd kings made bags of leather in which they carried milk, which was thus churned; and they made butter, which was the first butter made in this world.
God said: I preserved the I‘hin race to be without evil, as the foundation of my light, from whom I could reach forth to the tribes of darkness.
For I foreordained not to go within darkness to battle it, but to stand outside it, and give an example of righteousness (the I‘hin) for man to look upon.
And I planned from the beginning that my chosen would labor through examples of cities and kingdoms of righteousness.
The evil man and evil priest, who are subjects to satan and his hosts, remain in evil, preaching righteousness without a city or kingdom of example. But my chosen go away by themselves and build their cities, as a testimony of their faith in the Father.
And they practice the fullness of my commandments in their lives toward one another.
To him who says: THIS IS MINE, I have not spoken. To him who says: MY HOUSE, MY LANDS, I have not spoken.
For inasmuch as these things belong to them, such men belong to such things, and not to me.
To illustrate this truth, I raised up separate from the world‘s people, the I‘hins, who were my living examples of righteousness.
Do not think, however, that the I‘hins were the perfection of manhood and womanhood. They were not a developed race, nor righteous because of their own knowledge.
By the constant presence of my exalted angels, they were obsessed to righteousness, being restrained away from evil. They were my sermon before the tribes of druks and cannibals that covered the earth over; and, by virtue of signs and miracles, and by nonresistance, I preserved them.
For man of himself evolves only to power in evil; and for this reason, O man, you shall discern my dominion over the races of men, to work righteousness and goodwill.
And my examples reached into the souls of the barbarians, so that, in future ages, I could prepare them to hear my voice, and to comprehend my commandments.
For it is the fullness of light among men, when, without my presence or the presence of my hosts, they shall understand virtue and knowledge, practicing them of their own accord. In which time, men shall perceive that righteousness, peace, and love toward one another, are the foundation of the happiness of the spirit, and the only light of its resurrection.
The Lord said: Do not think that I came to one nation alone, leaving the others in darkness; I did not come to one alone, but to all the divisions of the earth. I held my hand over them according to what was required for them according to the times, and they accomplished that which was designed from the beginning.
The will of E-O-IH is not for man to be forever led, because, lo, his Lord says; but for man to ultimately have the light of practicing good works organically, from infancy up.
The Lord said: A teacher who does all things for his pupil, also sacrifices his pupil; he who teaches his pupil wrongly, sins against the Father; he who teaches his pupil not at all, is accessory to evil. In this light the Lord, your God, stands over the children of men.
Behold, I have demonstrated that my chosen can maintain themselves unharmed among barbarians; also that by unrestrained marriages a sacred people is quickly lost among barbarians.
For man, witnessing terrible conflicts, would rather have sons of strong limbs and arms, and crafty minds, to do abundant murderous work; from which condition he has no incentive to rise in gentleness and love, for the glory of the spirit.
So that I, your Lord, could show future generations, first, that without my hand in the work, no good nor peace could come among men; and, second, that only by a race of I‘hins, as examples of my power, through signs and miracles, could the barbarians be reached for their own good.
Not only did I leave the ruins of my cities, which had no gates of entrance, and houses without doors of entrance, so that you would have testimony of the race of I‘hins, but I have shown you that only by such a procedure could the barbarians be induced to a higher evolution.
Do not think, O man, that I did not foresee the time when men would question whether the Great Spirit ever placed a Lord over the earth; and that man would say: Behold, there is no Lord and no God. For I foresaw these times, and provided angels to go in advance, to show, first, the evolution of the races of men from out of the lowest darkness; and, second, that the cause of the evolution came from the Great Spirit, and was directed to righteousness; but would not have been so, except for the Lord, your God.
For I left sufficient tribes to this day, who dwell in darkness, even cannibals, as a testimony, that of themselves they possess nothing to cause a desire for evolution into knowledge, peace, industry, love, and good works to one another.
Will man not say: One people is raised up in consequence of the presence of their neighbor, and without a Lord or God, and the angels of heaven?
Now, behold, I have left savages at your door, and you do not raise them up, but destroy them. Showing you, that even your wisest and most learned have no power in resurrection. Neither have I left any way open for the resurrection of barbarians, except by examples of Faithists, who shall practice righteousness and miracles.
And there shall rise up those who will do these things; and because of their success, they shall also be testimony of the I‘hin race, in whom I laid the foundation for the redemption of the whole earth.
Thus the Lord established the five peoples who were saved from Pan; and he commanded them to preserve Panic words in their respective countries, which they did, and many of which exist to this day.
Here follows what became of these I‘hins, namely:
Those that came to Guatama survived twenty-one thousand years, and then became extinct.
Those that came to Jaffeth survived twenty-one thousand years, and then became extinct.
Those that came to Shem survived twelve thousand years, and then became extinct by amalgamation.
Those that came to Ham survived twenty-one thousand years, and then became extinct by amalgamation.
Those of Guatama attained to one thousand large cities, and three thousand small cities, being more than four million souls. And they never had any king or queen, or other ruler, except the Lord, who ministered to them through the city fathers. And they retained their sacred name of Guatama to the last of them; but the I‘huans called them Oech‘lo‘pan, signifying, people of another world [continent –Ed.].
And in the course of time they became diminutive, and lost their desire to marry. And there came great darkness (ocgokok) on the earth, with falling ashes, heat, and fevers; and so the Lord took them up to heaven.
Those of Jaffeth attained to two thousand large cities, and seven thousand small ones, being more than eight million souls. And they had no king, serving the Lord only. And they retained to the end of their line, the name Jaf-fa; but the I‘huans called them Tua Git, signifying, people of spirit light.
And there came a‘ji on the earth, and it touched them with impotency, and they brought forth no more heirs; so the Lord took them home.
Those of Shem attained to six hundred large cities, and two thousand small cities, being more than two million souls. Nor did they have any king, but they served the Lord through the city fathers. And they retained their name, Shem, to the last of them; but the I‘huans called them Sri-vede-iyi, signifying, people of the true light, woman-like. And impotence came upon them, and they disappeared, even as a drop of water in the sunlight, and no man knew when they ceased to be.
But hoping to preserve their seed to the Lord, many of them married with the I‘huans; but their children became I‘huans also, having neither the silken hair nor the musical voices of the I‘hins, nor the light of the upper heavens.
Those of Ham attained to one thousand two hundred large cities, and three thousand small cities, being four million souls. But, being of mixed colors, they did not become impotent. But they broke the law of God more than all other Faithists, being of warm blood; and they mixed greatly with the I‘huans. And they had no kings or queens, serving the Lord only, through the city fathers. And they retained the name of Ham to the end of their line, when they ceased to exist as a separate people because of their amalgamation with the I‘huans.
Regarding the tribes that went in the two ships to the north land (Japan), after a thousand years, no man could draw the line between them and the I‘huans, for they mingled with them, and were lost, as I‘hins. Nevertheless, they redeemed the barbarians into wisdom and peace.
