Book of Wars Against Jehovih Chapters XXXVIII and XXXIX


1. After the meeting between De’yus and Osiris and Sudga, when De’yus was left alone,
he thus reasoned: Since Sudga and Osiris have thus left me uncivilly amidst a most
disgusting quarrel, it must follow that on their arrival home they will secede, taking their
kingdoms with them. Well, it will be well; I will the more warmly bind my fellowship
to Te-in, and we twain shall overthrow Sudga and Osiris, and take all their spoils.

2. While De’yus thus soliloquized, messengers came from Che-su-gow, Te-in’s heavenly
place, bringing this word: Greeting to thee: our Lord God: Te-in hath seceded, and taken
both his heavenly and his corporeal dominions unto himself. With an army of two
hundred million angel warriors he is walling his heavenly kingdom around on every side;
none can pass or repass without his permission.

3. Before De’yus recovered from his surprise, behold, other messengers came from
Sudga’s heavenly place, saying: Greeting to thee, our Lord God: Sudga hath seceded,
taking with him his heavenly kingdom and his earth dominions, Vind’yu! With an army of
two hundred million angel warriors he is walling his heavenly kingdom around on every
side; none can pass or repass without his permission!

4. De’yus said: So alike and like! Then these rascal Gods had this planned beforehand!
Presently other messengers arrived, saying: Greeting to thee, our one-time Lord God of
heaven and earth! Osiris and Baal and Ashtaroth have seceded, taking their
heavenly kingdoms and their mortal dominions with them. I, Osiris, have spoken.
Thy higher grades I will draw unto myself; my lower grades I will banish unto thee!

5. De’yus said: Well, it is well. I will now make stronger the other heavenly divisions unto
me; and the earth divisions, too long neglected by me; Uropa, Guatama, North and South,
and their heavenly places.

6. But whilst he thus soliloquized, behold, messengers arrived from these places, also
announcing their secession in like manner. Then De’yus was silent for a long while,
considering. But satan came to him, saying:

7. Darkness cometh unto all the great, for by this the light is made to shine brighter. Now,
since all access to the corporeal earth is cut off, and since all thy supplies for food and
raiment must come up from the earth, it followeth that thou shalt lower Hored, thy
heavenly place, nearer to the face of the earth. The which accomplished, thou shalt send
ten thousand millions of thy warrior angels against these rebellious Gods and despoil

them of their dominions, and cast them into hell, and repossess thou the whole earth.

8. De’yus said: It is true! My way is clear. These rascally Gods know not how foolishly
they have exposed themselves. Hored is wide enough to cover them up. And by fire will I
chase the drujas upon them, ten thousand million strong; flood them with such foulness
that their kingdoms will go to pieces under them and suffocate them in the horrid stench.

9. De’yus then called together his vice-Gods, and his Holy Council, and his highest-raised
officers; and he related to them what had occurred, and his plans ahead. But that he might
the better deliberate and gain their acquiescence, he granted a day of recreation to meet on
the following day at the trumpet call.

10. But lo and behold, on the day of recreation, no less than seven hundred millions of his
highest grades left him and Hored, and descended to the heavenly kingdoms of his former
Gods, some to one and some to another, whilst a few of them descended to the earth
to found small kingdoms of their own. Danger was already staring Anuhasaj in the face.

11. Accordingly, he at once chose his officers, and set them to work, but owing to their
lack of knowledge in such matters, only small sections were bound and lowered at one
time, at which rate a hundred years would be required to accomplish the work. Hereat,
De’yus’heart began to fail him. The prophecies of the higher Gods, that he and his
kingdoms would be ultimately broken up and cast into hell, began to show signs of
realization fearful to contemplate.

12. Anuhasaj had no time for war, but must now use every stratagem in his power to
prevent dismemberment in his own kingdom. In these straits a good fortune came to him
in a ji’ay’an harvest falling in all the atmospherean heavens, compressing and falling, so
that his lowest grades were provided with sustenance from above, and they were pacified.

13. Jehovih had spoken to Cpenta-armij, in her far-off etherean worlds, saying: Behold,
the earth, she entereth now the ji’ay’an fields of Tu’e’vraga, in My high roads, Loo-sutsk.
A little while will I feed the self-Gods of the lower heavens, and lead them on to know
My power.

Chapter XXXIX

1. Jehovih spake to God, His Son, in Craoshivi, saying: Prepare thou, for the fall of ji’ay
in atmospherea. The earth and her heavens enter Loo-sutsk, seventy years in the rates of
seven hundred; forty years in five hundred; twenty years in a’ji! Be thou advised; for
Craoshivi shall fall to thirty, and Hored be buried in the earth. Call thou My Son, Ahura,
and reveal My words!

2. So God, in Craoshivi, advised his High Council, and also sent messengers in haste of
Vara-pishanaha, to Ahura, and acquainted him. After this God propounded in Council:
Anuhasaj, what can Craoshivi do for him? Thereupon the members spake at great length,
more than a thousand of them.

3. So God decreed: A commission to wait on Anuhasaj and inform him of his danger,
and offer to succor and save him. This that followeth is the message thus sent, to wit:

4. To thee, O Anuhasaj, greeting in Jehovih’s name, and by our love assured. Thou art
adjudged to be in perilous condition. Behold, one hundred and thirty years’pressure will
fall on the heavens of the earth; Craoshivi will go down to the depths of hada. Reach up
thy hands, and I will come and save thee and thy kingdom. Wilt thou withdraw thine

armies and permit the resurrection of thy lowest grades?

5. Anuhasaj answered this in these words: Who art thou that thus assaileth my peaceful
kingdom? Thou pretended son of the Void Nothingness? Call thou on me as becometh
one with thy small kingdom, and if thou need help for thyself, or for thy paupers, I will
give unto thee!

6. Thereupon God returned this answer, to wit: Be thou patient with me, O brother: If it
be that I am proved to be in darkness, and thou in the light, I will make thee ample
amends. If on the other hand I be in the light and thou in darkness, I will say naught that
would wound thee. If thou wilt apply thyself diligently to solve the place of the earth
and her heavens thou wilt find in truth the coming pressure whereof I told thee. Think
not that my words are spoken at random, but try them by prophecy and by mathematics.

7. As to the coming danger, it is an easy matter to estimate. A thousand years ago, when
thou first established thyself and thy heaven, Hored possessed an average grade above
fifty, all told. And there were four thousand millions of them.

8. In two hundred years thou hadst six thousand millions, and the grade was raised to
sixty-five. In the next two hundred years the number was nearly doubled, but the grade
had fallen to forty. And in two hundred years later the inhabitants had nearly doubled
again, but the grade had fallen to twenty-eight. In the next two hundred years, the increase
in numbers was at the same rate as the decrease in the grade.

9. Now behold, thy twenty-eight thousand millions, more than half of whom are in Hored,
are below grade ten. And when thou didst first possess Hored, a ten grade could not
survive thereon. Think not that some accidental thing will raise so great a weight.

10. Look into this matter, as to what thou hast done! Thou hast persuaded thy hosts not to
look up to Jehovih and His kingdoms, and lo, they incline downward to the earth. Yea,
they have already filled the earth with war and destruction.

11. Thou shalt not hope to throw these things on thy Gods, for they will turn against thee
and accuse thee. At present they are content to found kingdoms of their own. But they
will also come to an end. Because they have seceded from thee, let it be evidence that all
the highest grades will follow in the same way.

12. As for Craoshivi, her lowest grades are above fifty, and therefore self-sustaining; her
highest grades are ninety-nine and her average eighty-eight. And hundreds of millions of
these are such as my Lords have rescued from thy bondage; others, such Faithists on the
earth as thy false Gods put to death for refusing to bow to thee. And have they not proved
it is better to suffer death than to renounce faith in Jehovih? Otherwise they had now been
within the company of thy slaves, toiling in darkness.

13. Yea, my kingdom is made up of those that were despised and abused; and of those
that thy Gods slew in war, chaotic and mad. For my asaphs followed thy cruel wars and
gathered in the spirits of the slain, whom thou wouldst not have. Thou callest them poor
still. Why, so they are; they are washed white as snow; and because they have been taught
to keep on casting aside all accumulation, save knowledge and goodness of heart, in
which they are rich indeed.

14. They would come to thee now in pity to take thy people by the hand and deliver them
away from thee and darkness. And if thy slaves be not delivered away from thee, they will
surely, soon or late, turn upon thee and cast thee into hell. I pray thee, therefore, assume
thou conversion to Jehovih, and cast thy kingdom upon Him whilst thou mayst. For I

have the power and the means to deliver thee and thy slaves. Yea, I will give thee a new
name, and hide thee away, that they cannot find thee. And thou shalt be one with my in
my holy place.

15. To this Anuhasaj made no reply, and so the matter remained
