128 The King of Glory proclaimeth from the tabernacle of majesty and grandeur His call, saying:  O people of the Gospel!  They who were not in the Kingdom have now entered it, whilst We behold you, in this day, tarrying at the gate.  Rend the veils asunder by the power of your Lord, the Almighty, the All-Bounteous, and enter, then, in My name My Kingdom.  Thus biddeth you He Who desireth for you everlasting life.  He, verily, is potent over all things.  Blessed are those who have recognized the Light and hastened unto it.  They, verily, dwell in the Kingdom, and partake of the food and drink of God’s chosen ones.

129 We behold you, O children of the Kingdom, in darkness.  This, verily, beseemeth you not.  Are ye, in the face of the Light, fearful because of your deeds?  Direct yourselves towards Him.  Your All-Glorious Lord hath blessed His lands with His footsteps.  Thus do We make plain unto you the path of Him Whom the Spirit prophesied.  I, verily, bear witness unto Him, even as He hath borne witness unto Me.  Verily, He said:  “Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.”  In this day, however, We say:  “Come ye after Me, that We may make you to become quickeners of mankind.”  Thus hath the decree been inscribed in this Tablet by the Pen of Revelation.

130 O Pen of the Most High!  Bestir Thyself in remembrance of other kings in this blessed and luminous Book, that perchance they may rise from the couch of heedlessness and give ear unto that which the Nightingale singeth upon the branches of the Divine Lote-Tree, and hasten towards God in this most wondrous and sublime Revelation.

131 O King of Paris!(14) Tell the priests to ring the bells no longer.  By God, the True One!  The Most Mighty Bell hath appeared in the form of Him Who is the Most Great Name, and the fingers of the Will of Thy Lord, the Most Exalted, the Most High, toll it out in the heaven of Immortality in His name, the All-Glorious.  Thus have the mighty verses of Thy Lord been again sent down unto thee, that thou mayest arise to remember God, the Creator of earth and heaven, in these days when all the tribes of the earth have mourned, and the foundations of the cities have trembled, and the dust of irreligion hath enwrapped all men, except such as God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise, was pleased to spare.  Say:  He Who is the Unconstrained is come, in the clouds of light, that He may quicken the world with the breezes of His name, the Most Merciful, and unify its peoples, and gather all men around this Table which hath been sent down from heaven.  Beware that ye deny not the favour of God after it hath been sent down unto you.  Better is this for you than that which ye possess; for that which is yours perisheth, whilst that which is with God endureth.  He, in truth, ordaineth what He pleaseth.  Verily, the breezes of forgiveness have been wafted from the direction of your Lord, the God of Mercy; whoso turneth thereunto shall be cleansed of his sins, and of all pain and sickness.  Happy the man that hath turned towards them, and woe betide him that hath turned aside.
