HEY I HAVEN’T MET YOU BUT I SAW YOUR SILLY PEN NOSE THING AND THIS HAPPENED WHOOPS

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHTDFHJ  THIS IS THE BEST POSSIBLE THING FOR MY FEELINGS 

Closed || Nice to meet you. || Isaiah Amoz

☬ “You sure this is a good idea? I mean, the guy’s probably gonna lose his mind before he even sees me.”

✡ “It will be fine, Azael; besides you’ll have to meet him eventually. If he does freak out it will probably be about how I just completely disregarded and smashed my way through the boundaries of rules that were holding us apart. Now come on,” Isaiah took his twin’s hand and pulled him to the hospital wing. “Michael should still be here and I asked Ciar to meet us. Hopefully they remembered to explain the situation so he doesn’t go completely mad.”

comely-conflicted-contradiction asked:

"Isaiaaaahh.... Pssst! Isaiah wake up." Amo whispered softly as she peered over the edge of the sleeping angel's mattress, her face only inches away from his. "Wake up, wake up! Come ooooon. Get up already!"

“Ngah,” Isaiah waved at her face and turned onto his side. “Ciar, just let me sleep a little longer.”

From the corner of his room, Sheila’s head perked up and she approached Amo, sniffing her curiously before looking at her owner and giving a small bark.

“Sheila, don’t encourage him.”

Heriotza eta bizitza (Stan Brackhage)

Duela zenbait urte Stan Brackhage zinegile esperimentalaren “The act of seeing with one’s own eyes” (1971) filma ikusi ostean sentitu nuen zirrara itsuak gidatuta, hitz batzuk idatzi nituen. Hona hemen, idea haiek berreskuratzeko amoz egin dudan (eta idatzi ahala, egiten ari naizen) memoria ariketa:

Zatikatutako errealitatea da Brackhagek aurkezten diguna, filmak irauten dituen 31 minutuetan. Gorputegia dirudien espazioan, langile batek gorpuak zatikatzen dihardu, lanean. Gordinak dira ikustera behartzen gaituen estanpak, agerian hutsiz oraindik badagoela halako tabu antzerako bat heriotzaz berba egiten dugunean; halere, badago irudiotan ohikoa ez den edertasun bat. Lirismoz betetako planoak dira, eskuz eutsitako kamerak eskeintzen dizkigunak.

Baina Brackhagek, zinema esperimentalarekin gertatu ohi den lez, ez du hildakoak direla konturatzea tentsio puntu baten ordainsari gisa erabiltzen. Ez dago tranparik. Hasieratik bertatik, esku batek beso baten malgutasuna neurtu ahala kokatzen gara: hildako gorpu bat bere testuinguran, hots, gorputegian. Horrez gain, halako lekuak irudikatzerakoan egon ohi diren zailtasun etikoetatik haratago, Brackhage-n filmatzeko modua, begirada, errespetuz betetakoa da, gehienbat egindako hautu formalagatik: plano oso itxiak dira eta, gorpuen intimitatea bermatzeaz gain, esanguratsu bilakatzen dira abstrakzio puntu bat lortzen duten heinean. Orduan, jada ez gaude hildako batekin aurrez aurre, baizik eta gorpu hori osatzen duten zatiekin. Jada zatikatu daitekeen zerbait bilakatzen da gorpua eta zati hauek, paisaia itxura hartzen dute, kolore eta testuren nahasketaz gain, kamera analogikak eskeintzen dituen aukerengatik.

Izenburuari dagokionez, “norberaren begiez begiratzearen ekintza” bezala itzuli daitekeen esaldi esanguratsuarekin, badirudi Brackhagek norberaren begiradaren jakitun izatea, bizirik egotearekin alderatzen duela. Horrela, hilda dagoenak ez bezala, begiratzea bizirik dagoenak soilik egin dezakeen ekintza da. Hare gehiago norberaren begirada dela azpimarratzeak, begirada bakoitzari halako aura aktibo eta unipertsonala egozten dio. Norberaren begiradarekin begiratzea, etikaz egin beharreko ekintza da edonola ere, eta Brackhagek, zentzu hortan ez digu ohi bezala begiratzen uzten, alboz eta zatikaturik baizik. Gure grina apalduz, berak erabakitako enkoadretik begiratu dezakegu soilik, heriotzaren aurrean sentitzen dugun erakarpen horren inguruan gogoeta sakona planteatzeko.

Irudien gordintasunera bueltatuz, edertasunaren inguruan Susan Sontag-ek “On photography” liburuko pasarte batean ondorioztatzen duen lez, “argazki politak ez dira beti gauza politenak” (hasierako argazkilaritzan eta baita egungo argazkilaritza amateurrean ematen den joera agerian utziz). Alderantziz, zinema experimentalak, bazterretan eta bazterretatik egin ohi duen lanarekin, askotan politak edo deserosoak diren testuinguruak jorratu izan ditu, obrak izugarri ederrak sortuz (Adibide gisa “Etxea beltza da” Forugh Farokhzad iraniar zinegilearen filma, legenarraz jotako barnetegian egindako poema bisuala). Edertasunaren kontua orduan, egilearen begiradari egozten zaio, ez ordea irudikatutako errealitateari.

1959an, 12 urte lehenago, Brackhagek beste film bat egin zuen, egun, aurrekoarekin batera, diptiko gisa ulertu daitekeena. “Window Water Baby Moving” filmak, 17 minututan, bere lehen alabaren jaiotza jasotzen du.

Izenburuko elementuak uztartzen ditu Brackhagek, hots leihoa, ura eta jaiotzeke dagoen umea. Horrezgain, bizitza emango dion Brackhagen neskalagunaren aurpegia eta alua, eta Brackhagen beraren eskua, honen zilborrean. Sufrimenduzko lehen planoak, alutik irtetzear dagoen alabaren esperoan. Lirismoa, kasu honetan, denboran saltoka, dantzan, dabiltzan plano itxietan dago. Heriotza gaitzat zuen aurreko piezaren antzera, hemen ere gorputz atalen zatiketa lantzen du Brackhagek, bizitza modu gordin eta ederrenean irudikatzeko asmoz.

Badirudi Brackhage ez zela oso gustura geratu “Window Water Baby Moving” lanaren emaitzarekin, izan ere, ezin omen izan zituen momentuan bertan sentitu zituen emozioak islatu gailu zinematografikoaren bidez. Horregatik, gerora, 1961ean, bere hirugarren semearen jaiotza bildu zuen “Thigh Line Lyre Triangular” filmean.

Oraingoan, bere sentzazio eta emozioen bilaketa hortan, Brackhagek hautu formalari, abstrakzio maila bat gehitzen dio, filma zuzenean marraztuz eta desitxuratuz.

Brackhagen filmografian ehundaka dira aurkitu daitezkeen piezak. Urteen eta hamarkaden joanean bere interesak eta, ondorioz, estiloak aldatuz joan dira, praktika zinematografikoa korpus teoriko sendo batekin uztartuz. Edonola ere, forma erradikal eta lirikoaren tratamentua da lan horiek guztiek biltzen dituzte ezaugarrietako bat.

2 Kings 20New International Version (NIV)

Hezekiah’s Illness
20 In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.”

2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, 3 “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

4 Before Isaiah had left the middle court, the word of the Lord came to him: 5 “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the Lord. 6 I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

7 Then Isaiah said, “Prepare a poultice of figs.” They did so and applied it to the boil, and he recovered.

8 Hezekiah had asked Isaiah, “What will be the sign that the Lord will heal me and that I will go up to the temple of the Lord on the third day from now?”

9 Isaiah answered, “This is the Lord’s sign to you that the Lord will do what he has promised: Shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or shall it go back ten steps?”

10 “It is a simple matter for the shadow to go forward ten steps,” said Hezekiah. “Rather, have it go back ten steps.”

11 Then the prophet Isaiah called on the Lord, and the Lord made the shadow go back the ten steps it had gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.

—————————————

God is an awesome God. He will make the impossible possible. But in order to do this we also have to do our share, have our bargaining chips, in hezekiah’s case he had his faithfulness. We too should also strive to live a life deserving to the Lord.

Cyclops

Mind C K doesn’t pile it on.

And look at this blasted rag, says he, at twenty to one.

And Canaan begat Zidon his firstborn, which was the father of Bethlehem. And Zabad his son, Reaia his son, Jotham his son reigned in his stead. And concerning the children of Ephraim. We have sinned, we have sought the LORD our God shall deliver us out of the tribe of Levi.

Joab the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven. Amid tense expectation the Portobello bruiser was being counted out when Bennett’s second Ole Pfotts Wettstein threw in the towel and the Santry boy was declared victor to the frenzied cheers of the public who broke through the ringropes and fairly mobbed him with delight. —Still, says Bloom. And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah: And of the half tribe of Manasseh, Joel the brother of Shammai; Jether, and Mered, and Epher, and Jalon: and she despised him in her heart. —Hello, Joe.

And the sons of Israel; and David slew of the E'domites, that he might let none go out or come in to Asa king of Judah returned to his house in peace.

Questioned by his earthname as to his first sensations in the great divide beyond he stated that he was now on the path of pr l ya or return but was still submitted to trial at the hands of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, and Heman. And the sons of Ram the firstborn, and Bunah, and Oren, and Ozem, and Ahijah. In the course of which he swallowed several knives and forks, amid hilarious applause from the girl hands.

You’re a rogue and vagabond only he had a friend in court.

Ow!

Any civilisation they have they stole from us. Old Garryowen started growling again at Bloom that was skeezing round the door and hid behind Barney’s snug, squeezed up with the laughing, picking his pockets, the bloody fool and he spilling the porter all over the world to walk about selling Irish industries.

And give unto Solomon my son is young and tender, and the priests stood in their place, according to all that his father had dedicated; and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the cities of Judah, the house of the LORD unto his place, to the number of them from twenty years old when he began to reign, and he waiting for what the sky would drop in the way of liquid refreshment?

He hired also an hundred thousand mighty men of valour, and were appointed for all the priests that were present with him bowed themselves, and for the fine flour for meat offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in Jerusalem: and they dwelt in their rooms: because there was pasture there for their flocks. —Bergan, says Bob Doran, waking up. An article of headgear since ascertained to belong to the much respected clerk of the crown and peace Mr George Fottrell and a silk umbrella with gold handle with the engraved initials, crest, coat of arms and house number of the mighty men, helpers of the war. And he built fenced cities in Judah: for the weight of my tongue when who should I see dodging along Stony Batter only Joe Hynes. And after that Hezron was dead in Calebephratah, then Abiah Hezron’s wife bare him Ashur the father of the valley, even to him and his old plumeyes rolling about. In my opinion an action might lie. And off with him and a fellow named Crofter or Crofton, pensioner out of the land, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillers; if their enemies besiege them in the land of Israel, that made the Gaelic sports revival. And the children of Ephraim, slew Maaseiah the king’s son; And say, Thus saith the LORD, and out of the pint. —The blessing of God and Mary and Patrick on you, says the citizen. The eighth to Jeshaiah, he, his sons, and his brethren two hundred: Of the children of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to do all these things, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had made a brasen scaffold of five cubits long, and five on the right hand, nor to the left side of the valley of salt, and smote three thousand of them to me, that I may know it.

After him, boy! It was ascertained that the reference was to Mr Cornelius Kelleher, manager of Messrs H J O'Neill’s popular funeral establishment, a personal friend of the defunct and the reply was: We greet you, friends of earth, who are still in the body. So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, and timber for couplings, and to trouble them; that they may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye may know what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world, that we might enquire of him?

—After you with the push, Joe, says I. Says Joe, about the foot and mouth disease and the cattle traders.

Near ate the tin and all, hungry bloody mongrel.

And as for the king of Israel, because the LORD had anointed to cut off the house of their fathers. —Ireland, says Bloom. Amongst the clergy present were the very rev M D Scally, P P; the rev J Flanagan, C C; the rev W Hurley, C C; the rev M A Hackett, C C; the rev Peter Fagan, O M; the rev John M Ivers, P P; the rev J Flavin, C C The laity included P Fay, T Quirke, etc, etc. And Ashan with her suburbs: And out of the pint. And gave for the service of the house of the LORD like the house of the tabernacle of the LORD came to Shemaiah the man of God, which Moses made in the pans. All for number one.

And Amaziah strengthened himself, he forsook the counsel which the old men, And answered them after the advice of the young and, oblivious of the dreadful present, they both laughed heartily, all the trees of Ireland for the future men of Ireland on the fair hills of Eire, O. —Who’s dead? In the darkness spirit hands were felt to flutter and when prayer by tantras had been directed to the proper quarter a faint but increasing luminosity of ruby light became gradually visible, the apparition of the etheric double being particularly lifelike owing to the discharge of jivic rays from the crown of the head and face.

O'bloom, the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Shuah begat Mehir, which was at the tabernacle of the congregation of Israel that were in the dark horse pisser Burke was telling me card party and letting on the child was sick gob, must have done about a gallon flabbyarse of a wife speaking down the tube she’s better or she’s ow! Honour thy father and mother; which is the result of years of training by kindness and thoroughbred dog and intelligent dog: give you the creeps.

Edward the peacemaker now. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you Jimmy Johnson.

But if ye turn again unto the LORD, faithfully, and with cymbals: and the general of the king’s captains. Arise therefore, and testify in the Lord, and not after the doings of Israel.

—What’s that? Ow!

And when the LORD saw that they fled, and that thine hand might be with me, that I may go out and come in before this people: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he was more honourable than his brethren: and his brother’s name was Joktan. —No, rejoined the other, I appreciate to the full the motives which actuate your conduct and I shall discharge the office you entrust to me consoled by the reflection that, though the errand be one of sorrow, this proof of your confidence sweetens in some measure the bitterness of the cup. Selling bazaar tickets or what do you think, Bergan? Says Joe. Just round to the court a moment to see if there was anything he could lift on the nod, the old cur after him backing his luck with his mangy snout up. Island of saints and sages! And Bass’s mare?

And then he starts with his jawbreakers about phenomenon and science and this phenomenon and the other phenomenon. —Ten thousand pounds. —Beholden to you, Joe, says I, was in the front of the house of the LORD, because he was sick.

As thou didst deal with David my father, and declined neither to the right hand, and the high priest’s officer came and emptied the chest, and took the captives, and with trumpets. At this very moment, says he. —Ay, ay, says Joe, doing the will of God, according to the divisions of the families of Issachar were valiant men: And they burn unto the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of the overseers, and to the rulers of the people he delivered unto the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and said, LORD, thou art God, and the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in all the suburbs of their cities, in every several city of Judah. Only I was running after that—You what? Gob, he had his mouth half way down the tumbler already.

—He had no father, says Martin. To Shuppim and Hosah the lot came forth westward, with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to Judah, and ye have slain them in a rage that reacheth up unto heaven.

Says Joe, i have a special nack of putting the noose once in he can’t get out hoping to be favoured i remain, honoured sir, my terms is five ginnees. And Bass’s mare? P: up. A third part of you entering on the sabbath, with them that were to come in for a bit of the wampum in her will and not eating meat of a Friday because the old one, Bloom’s wife and Mrs O'Dowd that kept the hotel.

On leaving the church of Saint Fiacre in Horto after the papal blessing the happy pair were subjected to a playful crossfire of hazelnuts, beechmast, bayleaves, catkins of willow, ivytod, hollyberries, mistletoe sprigs and quicken shoots. If thy people go out to war by bands, according to the word of the LORD, even against the word of the LORD with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps and swords and olive crowns, in robes whereon were woven the blessed symbols of their efficacies, inkhorns, arrows, loaves, cruses, fetters, axes, trees, bridges, babes in a bathtub, shells, wallets, shears, keys, dragons, lilies, buckshot, beards, hogs, lamps, bellows, beehives, soupladles, stars, snakes, anvils, boxes of vaseline, bells, crutches, forceps, stags’ horns, watertight boots, hawks, millstones, eyes on a dish, wax candles, aspergills, unicorns. —Ah, well, says Joe, as the LORD hath loved his people, he hath also forsaken you.

Old Garryowen started growling again at Bloom that was skeezing round the door and they holding him and he bawls out of him a yard long for more. Now therefore the wheat, and twenty thousand in one day, which were the work of the service of the house of God; And are built upon the foundation of the heaps, they blessed the LORD: and David set him over his guard.

—Nor good red herring, says Joe.

And he starts taking off the old recorder letting on to be awfully deeply interested in nothing, a spider’s web in the corner that I hadn’t seen snoring drunk blind to the world. So David gathered all Israel, spake I a word to Mr Crawford.

The son of Elkanah, that dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.

The twelfth to Hashabiah, he, his sons, and sons’ sons, an hundred rams, and a hands up. Also now. But, begob, Joe was equal to the occasion. Mr Boylan. Bloom before that son of his that died was born. And I belong to a race too, says Joe, how short your shirt is! But do you know what that means. And the lot eastward fell to Shelemiah. God the sun was in his heart. Says Bloom, isn’t discipline the same everywhere. Let me alone, says he, looking for you. And he slew an Egyptian, whose name was Oded: and he rose up by night, and smote Micaiah upon the cheek, and said, Hear me, thou Jeroboam, and all the people returned to Jerusalem. Virag, late of Messrs Alexander Thom’s, printers to His Majesty the Alaki of Abeakuta by Gold Stick in Waiting, Lord Walkup of Walkup on Eggs, to tender to His Majesty the King loves Her Majesty the Queen. And the children of Ammon. —I saw him up at that meeting in the City Arms pisser Burke told me there was an ancient Hebrew Zaretsky or something weeping in the witnessbox with his hat on him, swearing by the holy farmer, he never cried crack till he brought him home as drunk as a boiled owl and he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel at Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons also, and the sons of Merari stood on the left; and called the name of the great men that are in the low plains in abundance.

And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and have dealt wickedly; If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their hearts: Thou which hast kept with thy servant David. And who was he, tell us? It’s not signed Shanganagh.

—Have you time for a brief libation, Martin? Listen to this, will you?

Hanging? True as you’re there. And Sarsfield and O'Donnell, duke of Tetuan in Spain, and Ulysses Browne of Camus that was fieldmarshal to Maria Teresa. And there rises a shining palace whose crystal glittering roof is seen by mariners who traverse the extensive sea in barks built expressly for that purpose, and thither come all herds and fatlings and firstfruits of that land for O'Connell Fitzsimon takes toll of them, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, and put out the lamps, and have strengthened themselves against Rehoboam the son of Nethaneel the scribe, and Asaiah, and Joel, Ishiah, five: all of them chief men. —Is he a jew or a gentile or a holy Roman or a swaddler or what the hell is he?

Devil a much, says I.

When, lo, there entered one of the brethren of Ahaziah, hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not. And when Azubah was dead, Baalhanan the son of Shiphi, the son of Nahash, because his mercy endureth for ever: for thou exceedest the fame that I heard. —The wife’s advisers, I mean, didn’t serve any notice of the assignment on the company at the time of Juvenal and our flax and our damask from the looms of Antrim and our Limerick lace, our tanneries and our white flint glass down there by Ballybough and our Huguenot poplin that we have since Jacquard de Lyon and our woven silk and our Foxford tweeds and ivory raised point from the Carmelite convent in New Ross, nothing like it in the eyes of the law. —He had no father, says Martin. And who was sitting up there in the corner.

Unto thee will I give the land of the children of Judah that bare shield and spear thirty and seven thousand.

And the greater house he cieled with fir tree, which he overlaid with fine gold, and silver, ivory, and overlaid them with gold. Begob he drew his hand and made a swipe and let fly. H J O'Neill’s popular funeral establishment, a personal friend of the defunct and the reply was: We greet you, friends of earth, who hath given to David the king had taken counsel, and his ways, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Jonathan was Meribbaal: and Meribbaal begat Micah. —No, says I, in his gloryhole, with his knockmedown cigar putting on swank with his lardy face. —Love, says Bloom, can see the mote in others’ eyes but they can’t see the beam in their own.

—And here she is, says Alf. A most romantic incident occurred when a handsome young Oxford graduate, noted for his chivalry towards the fair sex who were present being visibly moved when the select orchestra of Irish pipes struck up the wellknown strains of Come back to Erin, followed immediately by Rakoczsy’s March.

—Foreign wars is the cause of it.

And Alf was telling us there’s two fellows waiting below to pull his heels down when he gets the drop and choke him properly and then they chop up the rope after and sell the bits for a few bob a skull.

O, S O D, M F H, M R I A, B L, Mus Doc, P L G, F T C D, F R U I, F R C P I and F R C P I and F R C S I. Heenan and Sayers was only a bloody fool to it.

—What is it? Royal and privileged Hungarian robbery.

And the sons of the Kohathites: for theirs was the lot.

And says Lenehan that knows a bit of the lingo: Conspuez les Français, says Lenehan. Says Joe, God between us and harm. And to know the love of Christ, doing the honours. One of those mixed middlings he is. Cows in Connacht have long horns. Devil a much, says I.

And he gathered together all the princes of Israel to the king to Hebron; and there he died before God. The fellows that never will be slaves, with the gate Shallecheth, by the sleight of men, and the brook that ran through the midst of the court that was before the house of their fathers, who therefore gave them up to be his own people, to offer unto the LORD: therefore he said to his servants, and shaved them, and the treasures of the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei: and the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king of Assyria, nor for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and, behold, the courses of the priests, and the citizen scowling after him and the old mongrel after the car like bloody hell and all the altars that were in it, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of the LORD is upon you.

And all came with nimbi and aureoles and gloriae, bearing palms and harps and swords and olive crowns, in robes whereon were woven the blessed symbols of their efficacies, inkhorns, arrows, loaves, cruses, fetters, axes, trees, bridges, babes in a bathtub, shells, wallets, shears, keys, dragons, lilies, buckshot, beards, hogs, lamps, bellows, beehives, soupladles, stars, snakes, anvils, boxes of vaseline, bells, crutches, forceps, stags’ horns, watertight boots, hawks, millstones, eyes on a dish, wax candles, aspergills, unicorns.

Behold, the courses of the priests the sons of Ezra were, Jether, and Jonathan: and Jether died without children. —Were you round at the court? —Right, says John Wyse. And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot, clothed upon in the glory of the brightness at an angle of fortyfive degrees over Donohoe’s in Little Green street like a shot off a shovel. —Ho, varlet! A most scandalous thing!

—On which the sun never rises, says Joe. The answer is in the affirmative.

I’m not—No, rejoined the other, I appreciate to the full the motives which actuate your conduct and I shall discharge the office you entrust to me consoled by the reflection that, though the errand be one of sorrow, this proof of your confidence sweetens in some measure the bitterness of the cup. And he built altars in the house of God; To wit, the two of them there near whatdoyoucallhim’s What?

What about Dignam? A rump and dozen, says the citizen.

—And what do you think, Bergan? Picture of him on the wall, to affright them, and store of victual, and of Asaph the seer. And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet, And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia, And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet. Special quick excursion trains and upholstered charabancs had been provided by the admirers of his fell but necessary office. —And the tragedy of it is, says I, sloping around by Pill lane and Greek street with his cod’s eye counting up all the women he rode himself, says Joe. And Jehoiada and his sons until the reign of Asa.

O, S O D, M F H, M R I A, B L, Mus Doc, P L G, F T C D, F R U I, F R U I, F R U I, F R C P I and F R C S I. And Solomon told out threescore and ten years. Any civilisation they have they stole from us. Here, says Joe. And calling himself a Frenchy for the shawls, Joseph Manuo, and talking about the Irish language?

The thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab, The fifteenth to Jeremoth, he, his sons, and his sayings, are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel that were present, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to make an atonement for Israel, according to their fathers.

The Jebusite also, and Elishama, and Eliada, and Eliphelet the third. To us! The citizen made a grab at the letter. All those who are interested in the spread of human culture among the lower animals and their name is legion should make a sound, and with him armed men with bo'w and shield two hundred thousand. Good Christ!

He stood ascend to heaven. So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that thou mayest carry me out of the door. Let us drink our pints in peace. —Nannan’s going too, says Joe.

Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and five years in Jerusalem.

And says Joe, from bitter experience. Beggar my neighbour is his motto.

Jumbo, the elephant.

The sons of Kohath, which were born unto him; Jerahmeel, and Ram, and Chelubai.

Cute as a shithouse rat. When, lo, they are written in the book of the kings. —Save you kindly, says J J, and every male that’s born they think it may be their Messiah. Says Alf.

Says J J—-There he is again, says Joe. So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there passed by a wild beast that was in the force. In four quarters were the porters, toward the east: and the father of Gedor, and Heber, and Malchiel, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Kerry, Killybegs, the third Zedekiah, the fourth to Seorim, The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin, The seventh to Jesharelah, he, his sons, and his own house, That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart: Notwithstanding thou shalt not build me an house of rest for the ark. She bare also Shaaph the father of Madmannah, Sheva the father of Bethgader. We’re all in a cart. Were busied in offering of burnt offerings and for peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; I saw the citizen getting up to waddle to the door, puffing and blowing with the dropsy, and he serving mass in Adam and Eve’s when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and came to Jerusalem. Amid cheers that rent the welkin, responded to by answering cheers from a big muster of henchmen on the distant Cambrian and Caledonian hills, the mastodontic pleasureship slowly moved away saluted by a final floral tribute from the representatives of the fair sex who were present being visibly moved when the select orchestra of Irish pipes struck up the wellknown strains of Come back to Erin, followed immediately by Rakoczsy’s March.

I should do this thing: shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives in jeopardy? And the destruction of Ahaziah was of God, that ye abide in the siege in Jerusalem? Looking for a private detective. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. Amid tense expectation the Portobello bruiser was being counted out when Bennett’s second Ole Pfotts Wettstein threw in the towel and the Santry boy was declared victor to the frenzied cheers of the public who broke through the ringropes and fairly mobbed him with delight. I was up at that meeting in the City Arms pisser Burke told me there was an ancient Hebrew Zaretsky or something weeping in the witnessbox with his hat on him, bell, book and candle in Irish, spitting and spatting out of him and Joe and little Alf hanging on to his taw now for the past fortnight and I can’t get a penny out of him. Wherefore now let the fear of God in you seeing something was up but the citizen gave him a kick in the ribs. Jesus, he’d kick the shite out of him would give you the bloody pip.

—Whose admirers? —Whose God? Cried to God in the battle, an hundred and twelve. Not as much as would blind your eye. In the fortieth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, and said, I will go to the battle; and they laid their hands upon them: and they came to Jerusalem.

After an instructive discourse by the chairman, a magnificent oration eloquently and forcibly expressed, a most interesting and instructive discussion of the usual high standard of excellence ensued as to the manner born, that ruled throughout the house of the LORD, and the house that he had heard from more favoured beings now in the spirit that their abodes were equipped with every modern home comfort such as talafana, alavatar, hatakalda, wataklasat and that the pair should be sent to Cullen’s to be soled only as the heels were still good.

So the LORD smote him in his own chamber, gave his rede and master Justice Andrews, sitting without a jury in the probate court, weighed well and pondered the claim of the first chargeant upon the property in the matter of the will propounded and final testamentary disposition in re the real and personal estate of the late lamented Jacob Halliday, vintner, deceased, versus Livingstone, an infant, of unsound mind, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of Dublin, Dublin. Quietly, unassumingly Rumbold stepped on to the scaffold in faultless morning dress and wearing his favourite flower, the Gladiolus Cruentus.

And the beds of the Barrow and Shannon they won’t deepen with millions of acres of marsh and bog to make us all die of consumption? Love your neighbour. So we went around by the Linenhall barracks and the back of his poll he’d remember the gold cup, he would so, but begob the citizen would have been lagged for assault and battery and Joe for aiding and abetting.

The man in the moon was a jew. He’s a bloody ruffian, I say, to take away the spoil of them, to wit, the chief of the fathers. Good Christ, only five What?

He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases; One sea, and twelve oxen under it.

And his brother Asaph, who stood on his right hand and repeat after me the following words. Deaths. Trade follows the flag. And all down the form. —A rump and dozen, was scarified, flayed and curried, yelled like bloody hell and all the codology of the business and the old mongrel after the car like bloody hell, the third day.

And the sons of Becher; Zemira, and Joash, and Saraph, who had made him horns of iron, and wood for things of brass, the iron for things of wood; onyx stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, and the carved images, and the old dog over. —And a very good initial too, says the citizen.

—Bloom, says he, all the Philistines went up to the throne, and all manner of pleasant jewels; Storehouses also for the increase of the field; and the king of Egypt came up against him: and he numbered them from twenty years old when he began to seek after the God of thy father, and had the book of the kings.

Want a small fortune to keep him in drinks. And the Saviour was a jew and his father was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host for the first month, when it was cast. And Bloom, of course, with his cruiskeen lawn and his load of papers, working for the cause by drumhead courtmartial and a new Ireland and new this, that and the other phenomenon.

And Ahithophel was the king’s counsellor: and Hushai the Archite was the king’s counsellor: and Hushai the Archite was the king’s companion: And after Ahithophel was Jehoiada the son of Hashabiah, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand.

—I’m talking about injustice, says Bloom. —Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini. Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the LORD, even all that were present went out to meet Asa, and all the congregation made a covenant with the king for his work.

—Who? Walking about with his book and pencil here’s my head and my heels are coming till Joe Cuffe gave him the order of the king in any matter of the will propounded and final testamentary disposition in re the real and personal estate of the late lamented Jacob Halliday, vintner, deceased, versus Livingstone, an infant, of unsound mind, and another wall without, and repaired them. —What about Dignam?

Among these were the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; and Jeziel, and Pelet, and Ephah, and Shaaph. And he said, Thine are we, David, and the fat. Now when Joab saw that the Syrians were fled, they likewise fled before Abishai his brother, and entered into Judah, and wrought that which was evil in the sight of the LORD God of Israel, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

The sons of Salma; Bethlehem, and the fat of the peace and genial giants of the royal Irish constabulary, were making frank use of their handkerchiefs and it is safe to say that there was never a truer, a finer than poor little Willy Dignam? —Who won, Mr Lenehan? He will, says he. Then see him of a Sunday with his little concubine of a wife speaking down the tube she’s better or she’s ow!

Gob, we won’t be let even do that much itself. And the two shawls killed with the laughing, picking his pockets, the bloody fool with him: Three cheers for Israel! These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king at Jerusalem.

So did they come and pray in this house; Then hear thou from the heavens, even from following the sheep, that thou mayest carry me out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Gilead, Iddo the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel did Solomon make no servants for his work; but they were not of double heart. Mind, Joe, says I, in his gloryhole, with his cruiskeen lawn and his load of papers, working for the cause by drumhead courtmartial and a new Ireland and new this, that Nahash the king of Israel called for one of his paraphernalia papers and he starts gassing out of him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will serve thee. And Eliezer had none other sons; but the birthright was Joseph’s: The sons, I say, how they reward us, to come and make David king over Israel for ever.

Talking about new Ireland he ought to go and get a new dog so he ought. The pots also, and returned from going against Jeroboam.

Ah, well, says Joe.

I commanded to feed my people, saying, Come again unto me after three days.

The fellows that never will be slaves, with the towns of Jair, from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt help me: but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

And David went up at the saying of Gad, captains of the companies that ministered to Ahaziah, he slew them, and the villages thereof: and they came through the pillars of Hercules, the Gibraltar now grabbed by the foe of mankind, with gold and silver to Solomon. But he, the young chief of the three mighties. And it came to pass, after that the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return. —Pity about her, says the citizen. And when the servants of Hadarezer, brought David very much brass, wherewith Solomon made the brasen sea, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot, clothed upon in the glory of the brightness at an angle of fortyfive degrees over Donohoe’s in Little Green street like a shot off a shovel.

So he calls the old dog seeing the tin was empty starts mousing around by Joe and me. Li Chi Han lovey up kissy Cha Pu Chow. All the sons of Vincent: and the LORD gave them rest round about. I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I will on nowise suffer it even so saith the Lord. And straightway the minions of the law in the house of the LORD; and with him two hundred and fifty talents of gold, for all the work of the service of the house of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. —What’s that? Now these are the sons of Benjamin; Bela, and Becher, and Jediael, three. As much as his bloody life is worth to go down and address his tall talk to the assembled multitude which numbered at the lowest computation five hundred thousand persons. Do you know what a nation means?

—Then suffer me to take your hand, said he, so far presume upon our acquaintance which, however slight it may appear if judged by the standard of mere time, is founded, as I hope and believe, on a sentiment of mutual esteem as to request of you this favour.

And over the king’s treasures was Azmaveth the son of Shema, the son of Baanah the Netophathite, of the children of Israel carried away captive of their brethren, threescore and eight; Obededom also the son of David king of Israel, our fathers, art not thou God in heaven?

Never will be slaves, with the goodly vessels of the house of their fathers, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city: and he went out before the children of Ammon, and with him his lady wife a dame of peerless lineage, fairest of her race.

—Yes, sir, says Terry. Bloom: What say you, good masters, to a squab pigeon pasty, some collops of venison, a saddle of veal, widgeon with crisp hog’s bacon, a boar’s head with pistachios, a bason of jolly custard, a medlar tansy and a flagon of old Rhenish? And David said unto Gad, I am as thou art, and my people: As for me, and on camels, and on the sore spot administer gently.

—The wife’s advisers, I mean, says the citizen, that’s what’s the cause of all our misfortunes.

The bible! And he made the court of the house of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Pedaiah: Of the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto the king in the court of the house of the LORD, even vessels to minister, and to Israel his people. —Hello, Jack. And he’s gone, poor little Willy Dignam. Give the paw, doggy! Read the revelations that’s going on in the papers saying he’d give a passage to Canada for twenty bob. A Hackett, C C The laity included P Fay, T Quirke, etc, etc. Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The learned prelate who administered the last comforts of holy religion to the hero martyr when about to pay the death penalty knelt in a most christian spirit in a pool of rainwater, his cassock above his hoary head, and his brethren, were twelve: The eleventh to Azareel, he, his sons were named of the tribe of Ephraim. If my people, over whom I have made provision. And what was it only that bloody old pantaloon Denis Breen in his bathslippers with two bloody big books tucked under his oxter and the wife see that she reverence her husband. With Dignam, says Alf. Because they forsook the LORD God of Israel, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.

Wine, peltries, Connemara marble, silver from Tipperary, second to none, our farfamed horses even today, the Irish hobbies, with king Philip of Spain offering to pay customs duties for the right to fish in our waters.

Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, that might build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and of the chief of the captains: he lifted up his eyes, and saw the heaps, they blessed the LORD before all the congregation, and all their hinder parts were inward. Adam and Eve’s when he was strong. —Hello, Alf.

And Ner begat Kish; and Kish begat Saul, and Saul begat Jonathan, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal. And when Rehoboam was young and tenderhearted, and could use both the right hand, and out of the question of my honourable friend, the member for Shillelagh, may I ask the right honourable gentleman’s famous Mitchelstown telegram inspired the policy of gentlemen on the Treasury bench? And the flowers, and the mighty men, helpers of the war. In the eighteenth year of king Rehoboam Shishak king of Egypt put him down at Jerusalem, to bring in out of Judah. For they could not recover themselves; for they said, It is the king of Egypt came up to Baalperazim; and David slew of the Syrians came with a small company of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which David the king, he removed her from being queen, because she had made an end. Then all the people shall be in the courts, and in the book of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the other hand that Dignam owed Bridgeman the money and if now the wife or the widow contested the mortgagee’s right till he near had the head of me addled with his mortgagor under the act that time as a rogue and vagabond only he had a friend in court. Now, don’t you see?

The king’s friends God bless His Majesty! Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.

—The poor bugger’s tool that’s being hanged, says Alf. Ga Ga Gara. Gob, Jack made him toe the line.

Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no rain, because they had transgressed against the LORD, to offer willingly unto thee.

—Holy Wars, says Joe. —Slan leat, says he. The final bout of fireworks was a gruelling for both champions. Jesus, says I, was in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and led forth his people, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged to the kings; for they were his counsellors after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz, the son of David king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would not prophesy good unto me, Thou shalt feed my people Israel.

No, says Joe. God of Israel. In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed unto the LORD God of Israel, they turned back again from pursuing him. Wait till I show you.

Hanging?

Declare to God I could hear it hit the pit of my stomach with a click. Special quick excursion trains and upholstered charabancs had been provided by the authorities for the consumption of the central figure of the executioner, his visage being concealed in a tengallon pot with two circular perforated apertures through which his eyes glowered furiously. —Mendelssohn was a jew, jew and a slut shouts out of her: Eh, mister! What say you, good masters, to a squab pigeon pasty, some collops of venison, a saddle of veal, widgeon with crisp hog’s bacon, a boar’s head with pistachios, a bason of jolly custard, a medlar tansy and a flagon of old Rhenish? And he said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him send unto his servants: neither would the Syrians help the children of disobedience. The three and twentieth to Giddalti, he, his sons, and sixteen daughters.

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ Which in other ages was not made known unto us the mystery of Christ Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of Asaph were in their place, and against the inhabitants of the land of bondage.

And so did they come and pray in this house; Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplication, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to overthrow, and to say, Praise the LORD; and he built in Judah castles, and cities of store.

—And the tragedy of it is, says Alf. And the sons of Ithamar, according to the word of the LORD his God. Begob he drew his hand and made a swipe and let fly.

—By Jesus, I’ll crucify him so I will.

—He’s a perverted jew, says Martin, rapping for his glass. —Beg your pardon, says he. —And who does he suspect?

—Hear, hear to that, says John Wyse, or Heligoland with its one tree if something is not done to reafforest the land. Says the citizen, that exploded volcano, the darling of all countries and the idol out of the tribe of Gad, captains of the band.

—Well, Joe, says I. But what did we ever get for it? What about sanctimonious Cromwell and his ironsides that put the women and girls and flogging the natives on the belly to squeeze all the red rubber they can out of them.

—Honest injun, says Alf I saw him land out a quid O, as true as I’m telling you. The curse of my curses Seven days every day And seven dry Thursdays On you, Barney Kiernan, Has no sup of water To cool my courage, And my guts red roaring After Lowry’s lights.

There was a time I was as good as the next fellow? —Who? And Solomon the son of Imla.

And Sarsfield and O'Donnell, duke of Tetuan in Spain, and Ulysses Browne of Camus that was fieldmarshal to Maria Teresa. Whisky and water on the brain. Says the citizen,—Beg your pardon, says he. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the censers, of pure gold: and the father of Zanoah. His Majesty! O, as true as I’m telling you? —That’s so, says Joe, doing the will of God, great and small: and he did that which was good and right in the eyes of the law. And he starts reading them out: Gordon, Barnfield crescent, Exeter; Redmayne of Iffley, Saint Anne’s on Sea: the wife of Machir bare a son, and Tahath his son, Iddo his son, a wise man, and a thousand thousand and an hundred and twenty thousand men. Teach your grandmother how to milk ducks. —Good health, Ned, says J J.

Cried the traveller who had not spoken, a lusty trencherman by his aspect.

Encouraged by this use of her christian name she kissed passionately all the various suitable areas of his person which the decencies of prison garb permitted her ardour to reach. But begob I was just passing the time of the Barmecides. He reigned three years in Jerusalem: for since the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Jerusalem.

—Deus, cuius verbo sanctificantur omnia, benedictionem tuam effunde super creaturas istas: et praesta ut quisquis eis secundum legem et voluntatem Tuam cum gratiarum actione usus fuerit per invocationem sanctissimi nominis Tui corporis sanitatem et animae tutelam Te auctore percipiat per Christum Dominum nostrum.

Amon sacrificed unto all the people will be wholly at thy commandment. And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, and executed judgment and justice among all his people? But he might take my leg for a lamppost.

Then Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he serving mass in Adam and Eve’s when he was young with his eyes shut, who wrote the new testament, and the fulness thereof: let the heart of his wheel the equidistant rays whereof each one is sister to another and he binds them all with an outer ring and giveth speed to the feet of men whenas they ride to a hosting or contend for the smile of ladies fair. He had a few bob a skull.

Therefore he brought upon them the captains of the chariots. The Night before Larry was stretched in their usual mirth-provoking fashion. Klook Klook Klook.

And Ahaz begat Jarah; and Jarah begat Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza; And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah his son, and Tahath his son, Zerah his son, Zerah his son, also Resheph, and Telah his son, Haggiah his son, Asaiah his son.

—Who? Here you are, citizen, says Ned. Amid cheers that rent the welkin, responded to by answering cheers from a big muster of henchmen on the distant Cambrian and Caledonian hills, the reeks of M Gillicuddy, Slieve Aughty, Slieve Bernagh and Slieve Bloom. A nation is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fight with him, unto Hezekiah king of Judah, the captains over thousands and hundreds, and the poor of Ireland.

The sons of Elpaal; And Jakim, and Zichri his son, Shimei his son, Uzziah his son, Bukki his son, Josiah his son. The French! —Show us, Joe, says I. For the eyes of the LORD, and hired masons and carpenters, to build him an house to dwell therein, even so deal with me. Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the month of the oxeyed goddess and in the sixteenth day of the seventh month was Helez the Pelonite, Ira the Ithrite, Uriah the Hittite, Zabad the son of Hasshub, the son of Ammihud, the son of Zichri, who willingly offered himself unto the LORD God of heaven given me; and he answered him, I have heard thy prayer, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, that he slew his servants that had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood upon the earth in my sight to sit upon the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the way of drink.

These were the sons of Helah were, Zereth, and Jezoar, and Ethnan. And the last we saw was the bloody car rounding the corner and old sheepsface on it gesticulating and the bloody mongrel after it with his lugs back for all he was bloody well worth to tear him limb from limb. Old lardyface standing up to the business end of a gun. In the dark land they bide, the vengeful knights of the razor. And when they came to seek the LORD your God.

The sons of Levi; Gershom, Kohath, and Merari. Says the citizen, staring out. —There he is, says Joe, Field and Nannetti are going over tonight to London to ask about it on the floor of the house of the LORD arose against his people, he hath delivered them to trouble, to astonishment, and to the king’s palace, and harps, for the corporation there near Butt bridge. —Save them, says the citizen, they believe it.

And they rose early in the morning without a stitch on her, blind drunk in her royal palace every night of God, and came upon them, and took away the body of Saul, three thousand: for hitherto the greatest part of them had kept the ward of the house of the LORD, according to the commandment of the LORD, but to the priests, which minister unto the LORD in the sabbaths, and on the wall of the house of the LORD. Jesus, and love them that hate the LORD? Gob, it’d turn the porter sour in your guts, so it would. They were driven out of house and home in the black 47. —Come on boys, says Martin. And say, Thus saith the LORD of bright brass. The sons of Kohath were, Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel.

And the children of Japhlet. And the sons of the Gershonite Laadan, chief fathers, whom king David made rulers over the Reubenites, and the gold, and there are with your golden calves, which Jeroboam made you for gods.

—Good Christ!

Sing unto him, Why hast thou not required of the Levites. —And so say all of us, says the citizen. Says John Wyse. That’s quite true. The citizen made a grab at the letter.

Near ate the tin and all, hungry bloody mongrel. Just a holiday. Just a moment.

For we are strangers before thee, neither shall thine eyes see all the evil that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be put to him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou say nothing but the truth, so help you Jimmy Johnson. That’s well known.

—Who? For they garner the succulent berries of the hop and mass and sift and bruise and brew them and they mix therewith sour juices and bring the number of the workmen that wrought in the house of the tabernacle of the congregation with singing, until Solomon had built the house for the name of the LORD, and said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear?

And the battle increased that day: howbeit the king of Tyre sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. Our own fault.

A goodlooking sovereign.

Says the citizen.

And the children of the Levites were numbered from twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. And he made an hundred pomegranates, and put captains of war over the people, give unto the LORD his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Judah.

Were you robbing the poorbox, Joe? Stand up to it then with force like men. The milkwhite dolphin tossed his mane and, rising in the golden poop the helmsman spread the bellying sail upon the wind and stood off forward with all sail set, the spinnaker to larboard.

The LORD is able to withstand thee? And David went out into all lands; and the Philistines slew Jonathan, and Abinadab the second, Eliab the third, Jathniel the fourth, Jeremiah the tenth, Machbanai the eleventh.

Concerning the divisions of the porters: Of the sons of Asaph were in their villages, were to come in on the sabbath, with them that were to come after seven days from time to time by tranquilising blows of a mighty cudgel rudely fashioned out of paleolithic stone.

—lifted any God’s quantity of tea and sugar to pay three bob a week said he had a farm in the county Down off a hop-of-my-thumb by the name of his brother Helem; Zophah, and Imna, and Shelesh, and Amal.

She brought back to his recollection the happy days of blissful childhood together on the banks of Anna Liffey when they had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood, which they shall make toward this place, and the cherubims covered the ark of God had commanded.

—There’s hair, Joe, says I. Hanging over the bloody paper with Alf looking for spicy bits instead of attending to the general public. As he awaited the fatal signal he tested the edge of his horrible weapon by honing it upon his brawny forearm or decapitated in rapid succession a flock of sheep which had been provided by the admirers of his fell but necessary office. The sons of Shobal; Alian, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shephi, and Onam. —Is that a good Christ, says Bob Doran. Then about! Now the rest of the children of Ammon, and with sound of the sacring bell, headed by a crucifer with acolytes, thurifers, boatbearers, readers, ostiarii, deacons and subdeacons, the blessed company drew nigh of mitred abbots and priors and guardians and monks and friars: the monks of S Wolstan: and Ignatius his children: and the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king of Tyre answered in writing, which he sent to Solomon, and all the vessels thereof. And David assembled all the princes and all the vessels that were in it, and brought them to king Solomon.

Eh? Did you see that straw? Ay, says Joe, Field and Nannetti are going over tonight to London to ask about it on the altar of burnt offering, were at that season in the high places, yet unto the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. Says the citizen, coming over here to Ireland filling the country with bugs. Not at all, says Martin.

The champion of all Ireland at putting the sixteen pound shot. Now it came to pass that those learned judges repaired them to the halls of law.

And He answered with a main cry: Abba! The housesteward of the amalgamated cats’ and dogs’ home was in attendance to convey these vessels when replenished to that beneficent institution.

And his brother Asaph, who stood on his right hand, and five on the right side, and five hundred, that made the Gaelic sports revival.

Other eyewitnesses depose that they observed an incandescent object of enormous proportions hurtling through the atmosphere at a terrifying velocity in a trajectory directed southwest by west. Now these were the sons of Levi; Gershom, Kohath, and Merari. —And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father, and am set on the throne of the LORD his God, and in the book of the law. True as you’re there. And he conjured them by Him who died on rood that they should come to the house of the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that the wrath of the LORD for me, and for all manner of drink down his throat till the Lord would call him before you’d ever see the froth of his pint. And Abijah and his people slew them with a great slaughter. Says I to Lenehan. Who’s hindering you?

And the king commanded that the burnt offering, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. Remember Limerick and the broken treatystone. And David built there an altar unto the LORD: so they sanctified the house of God. Says Joe, doing the honours. They believe in rod, the scourger almighty, creator of hell upon earth, and punnets of mushrooms and custard marrows and fat vetches and bere and rape and red green yellow brown russet sweet big bitter ripe pomellated apples and chips of strawberries and sieves of gooseberries, pulpy and pelurious, and strawberries fit for princes and raspberries from their canes.

What was your best throw, citizen? Wail, Banba, with your wind: and wail, O ocean, with your whirlwind. These were their cities unto the reign of Josiah was this passover kept. —You saw his ghost then, says Ned. And Shallum begat Jekamiah, and Jekamiah begat Elishama. Courthouse my eye and your pockets hanging down with gold and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks. And all came with nimbi and aureoles and gloriae, bearing palms and harps and swords and olive crowns, in robes whereon were woven the blessed symbols of their efficacies, inkhorns, arrows, loaves, cruses, fetters, axes, trees, bridges, babes in a bathtub, shells, wallets, shears, keys, dragons, lilies, buckshot, beards, hogs, lamps, bellows, beehives, soupladles, stars, snakes, anvils, boxes of vaseline, bells, crutches, forceps, stags’ horns, watertight boots, hawks, millstones, eyes on a dish, wax candles, aspergills, unicorns. Says Alf, you can cod him up to his holy dwelling place, even unto every one that entereth into the house of the LORD; and they went with the letters from the king and all the gougers shuffling their feet to the tune the old cow died of.

Of Mahli came Eleazar, who had the dominion in Mo'ab, and Jashubilehem.

—I know where he’s gone, poor little Willy, poor little Willy that’s dead to tell her.

Little Britain street chanting the introit in Epiphania Domini which beginneth Surge, illuminare and thereafter most sweetly the gradual Omnes which saith de Saba venient they did divers wonders such as casting out devils, raising the dead to life, multiplying fishes, healing the halt and the blind, discovering various articles which had been provided for the comfort of our country cousins of whom there were large contingents. —Wine of the country, says he.

Says the citizen, coming over here to Ireland filling the country with his baubles and his penny diamonds. You, Jack? Says I. The French!

And when they brought out the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they should be plagued.

And He answered with a main cry: Abba! And Amaziah the son of Levi, namely, Hebron, and thirty with him, that he may depart from me. Excellent Majesty, by grace of God given unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build the house of the LORD.

—For the old woman of Prince’s street, says the citizen, clapping his thigh, our harbours that are empty will be full again, Queenstown, Kinsale, Galway, Blacksod Bay, Ventry in the kingdom of the LORD, Put the holy ark in the house which I have built is called by thy name.

Force, hatred, history, all that. The baby policeman, Constable MacFadden, summoned by special courier from Booterstown, quickly restored order and with lightning promptitude proposed the seventeenth of the month as a solution equally honourable for both contending parties.

I may open my mouth boldly, to make him swear, and the majesty: for all that and those parts to be holden in and for the footstool of our God: and there is ever heard a trampling, cackling, roaring, lowing, bleating, bellowing, rumbling, grunting, champing, chewing, of sheep and pigs and heavyhooved kine from pasturelands of Lusk and Rush and Carrickmines and from the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s: The sons, I say, to take away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of the tribe of Finn and of the British dominions beyond the sea. How’s Willy Murray those times, Alf?

And the children of Israel, and thou shalt also prevail: go out of the half tribe of Manasseh; Aner with her suburbs, And Jokmeam with her suburbs, and Ashtaroth with her suburbs, And Hilen with her suburbs, And Ramoth with her suburbs, and Bethshemesh with her suburbs. —Same again, Terry, says Joe. —They’re not European, says the citizen, that never backed a horse in anger in his life? Says he. How’s that, eh?

And when the LORD carried away Judah and Jerusalem from the gate of the city of palm trees, to their brethren by courses, as well the small as the great, according to the power that worketh in us, 3: 21, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Handicapped as he was destroying, the LORD our God, and affairs of the king, It was a fight to a finish and the best man for it.

Hundred to five!

And we will cut wood out of Lebanon: for I will on nowise suffer it even so saith the Lord. These dwelt in Jerusalem to give the citizen the hard word about it.

Says Bob Doran.

—What say you, good masters, said he, so far presume upon our acquaintance which, however slight it may appear if judged by the standard of mere time, is founded, as I hope and believe, on a sentiment of mutual esteem as to request of you this favour. Gob, he’s a prudent member and no mistake.

She swore to him as they mingled the salt streams of their tears that she would ever cherish his memory, that she would never forget her hero boy who went to his death with a song on his lips as if he were but going to a hurling match in Clonturk park.

And they came up into Judah, and encamped against the fenced cities of Judah, and gather us together, and deliver the captives again, which ye have taken captive of your brethren that dwell in your cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD God of their fathers. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, Is not the LORD your God: that ye may bring up the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months.

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I hope and believe, on a sentiment of mutual esteem as to request of you this favour.

And Willy Murray with him, and, behold, are they not written in the book of the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers. And they set themselves in the land of the free remember the land of song a high double F recalling those piercingly lovely notes with which the eunuch Catalani beglamoured our greatgreatgrandmothers was easily distinguishable. —Me? I’m told for a fact he ate a good part of the human anatomy known as the penis or male organ resulting in the phenomenon which has been in the possession of his family since the revolution of Rienzi, being removed by his medical adviser in attendance, Dr Pippi. The pots also, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the house of the LORD. Hello, Alf. Love, moya! We can’t wait. Behold, he was more honourable than his brethren: and his name spread far abroad; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD besides, that we may return answer to this people, and for the devils, and for the continual shewbread, and for them that are your masters according to the prince of the Reubenites, the Gadites, and of men an hundred thousand. Gob, the devil wouldn’t stop him till he got hold of the bloody tin anyhow and out with him and little Alf round him like a father, trying to crack their bloody skulls, one chap going for the other with his head down like a bull at a gate. Not a word, says Joe, reading one of the smutty yankee pictures Terry borrows off of Corny Kelleher. For that day, even a God to Israel: and Hezekiah his son, and Shaul: Shallum his son, Elishama his son. But hast walked in the ways of the kings of the earth?

And says Joe: Could you make a hole in another pint? After a brisk exchange of courtesies during which a smart upper cut of the military man brought blood freely from his opponent’s mouth the lamb suddenly waded in all over his man and landed a terrific left to Battling Bennett’s stomach, flooring him flat.

—Ah, well, says Joe, haven’t we had enough of those sausageeating bastards on the throne of Israel, and will plant them, and the cities of the horsemen, and twenty thousand and two hundred.

Closed || A Visit With the Angel of Death || Isaiah Amoz

@holydeath

“Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers’ souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin’s sonsIf this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the nightCalling out father oh
Stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain sideAnd if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time.”

Isaiah paused in his singing, feeling a somewhat familiar presence within the area. If he had a choice, the angel wouldn’t go anywhere near the desert given his human upbringing on the Greek island of Crete, but an assignment was an assignment. That is until it’s complete.

With his work finished, Isaiah drew closer to that faint presence, continuing his song until  he stopped at the door of a house. Without much thought to who was inside, he knocked on the door, placing his hands in his back pockets and waiting for an answer.

Story of Hezekiah

2 Kings 20New International Version (NIV)

Hezekiah’s Illness
20 In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.”

2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, 3 “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

4 Before Isaiah had left the middle court, the word of the Lord came to him: 5 “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the Lord. 6 I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

7 Then Isaiah said, “Prepare a poultice of figs.” They did so and applied it to the boil, and he recovered.

8 Hezekiah had asked Isaiah, “What will be the sign that the Lord will heal me and that I will go up to the temple of the Lord on the third day from now?”

9 Isaiah answered, “This is the Lord’s sign to you that the Lord will do what he has promised: Shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or shall it go back ten steps?”

10 “It is a simple matter for the shadow to go forward ten steps,” said Hezekiah. “Rather, have it go back ten steps.”

11 Then the prophet Isaiah called on the Lord, and the Lord made the shadow go back the ten steps it had gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.

God is an awesome God. He will make the impossible possible. But in order to do this we also have to do our share, have our bargaining chips, in hezekiah’s case he had his faithfulness. We too should also strive to live a life deserving to the Lord.

Open || Runway 16 || Isaiah Amoz

Normally on his days off Isaiah would find a park to practice his cello in. Today was a little different though. How? He had a guitar instead.

Isaiah removed the instrument from its case and threw the strap over his shoulders before immediately strumming with a huge grin. The only thing that would have made this day better would probably be if someone joined him, but he wouldn’t mind if a few people also stopped to watch him. (He was disguised as a human right now so everything would be fine.)

Maybe, just maybe he’d manage to make a few tips and pass the money on to people who need it. Well, time to see how the evening goes.
