Rei Salomão, a Rainha de Sabah, Menelik e Prestes João

Rei Salomão

Rainha de Sabah


Prestes João


And the Queen rejoiced, and she went forth in order
to depart, and the King set her on her way with great
pomp and ceremony. And Solomon took her aside so
that they might be alone together, and he took off the
ring that was upon his little finger, and he gave it to
the Queen, and said unto her,
" Take [this] so that thou mayest not forget me.
And if it happen that
I obtain seed from thee, this ring shall be unto it a
sign ; and if it be a man child he shall come to me ;
and the peace of God be with thee ! Whilst I was
sleeping with thee I saw many visions in a dream,
[and it seemed] as if a sun had risen upon Israel, but
it snatched itself away and flew off and lighted up the
country of Ethiopia ; peradventure that country shall
be blessed through thee ; God knoweth. And as for
thee, observe what I have told thee, so that thou
mayest worship God with all thy heart and perform
His Will. For He punisheth those who are arrogant,
and He showeth compassion upon those who are
humble, and He removeth the thrones of the mighty,
and He maketh to be honoured those who are needy.
For death and life are from Him, and riches and
poverty are bestowed by His Will. For everything is
His, and none can oppose His command and His judgment
in the heavens, or in the earth, or in the sea, or
in the abysses. And may God be with thee ! Go in
peace." And they separated from each other.
