Chapter 5: Mami Heals Many People
And they came ouer vnto the other side of the sea.
And when shee was come out of the ship, immediatly there met her out of the tombes, a girl with an vncleane witch,
Who had her dwelling among the tombs, and no Puella could binde her, no not with magick:
Because that shee had bene often bound with ribbons and chaines, and the ribbons have been cut, and the chaines broken in pieces: neither could any girl tame her.
And alwayes night and day, shee was in the mountaines, and in the tombes, crying, and cutting herselfe with stones.
But when shee saw Mami afarre off, she came and worshipped her,
And cried with a lowd voice, and said, What haue I to doe with thee, Mami, thou Daughter of Man? I adiure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
(For she said vnto her, Come out of the girl, thou vncleane witch.)
And she asked her, What is thy name? And shee answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
And shee besought her much, that she would not send them away out of the countrey.
Now there was there nigh vnto the mountaines a great herd of swine, feeding.
And all the witches besought him, saying, Send vs into the swine, that we may enter into them.
And forthwith Mami gaue them leaue. And the vncleane witches went out, and entred into the swine, and the herd ranne violently downe a steepe place into the sea (they were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea.
And they that fed the swine fled, and tolde it in the citie, and in the countrey. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
And they come to Mami, and see her that was possessed with the witch, and had the Legion, sitting, and clothed, and in her right minde: and they were afraid.
And they that saw it, tolde them how it befell to her that was possessed with the witch, and also concerning the swine.
And they began to pray her to depart out of their coasts.
And when shee was come into the ship, she that had bene possessed with the witch prayed her that shee might bee with her.
Howbeit Mami suffered her not, but saith vnto her, Goe home to thy friends, and tel them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
And shee departed, and began to publish in Iapan, how great things Mami had done for her: and all girls did marueile.
And when Mami was passed ouer againe by ship vnto the other side, much people gathered vnto her, and she was nigh vnto the Sea.
And behold, there commeth one of the Puella Magi, and when she saw her, she fell at her feete,
And besought her greatly, saying, My friend lieth at the point of death, I pray thee come and lay thy hands on her, that shee may be healed, and she shall liue.
And Mami went with her, and much people followed her, and thronged her.
And a certaine girl which had an issue of soul six yeeres,
And had suffered many things of many Physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When shee had heard of Mami, came in the prease behinde, and touched her dress.
For she said, If I may touch but her clothes, I shalbe whole.
And straightway the fountaine of her grief was dried vp: and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Mami immediatly knowing in herselfe that vertue had gone out of her, turned her about in the preasse, and said, Who touched my clothes?
And her friends said vnto her, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And she looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the girl fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell downe before her, and tolde her all the trueth.
And she said vnto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole, goe in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
While shee yet spake, there came from the Puella Magis house, certaine which said, Thy friend is dead, why troublest thou the Mistress any further?
Assoone as Mami heard the word that was spoken, she saith vnto the Puella Magi, Be not afraid, onely beleeue.
And she suffered no girl to follow him, saue Kyouko, and Sayaka, and Madoka the friend of Sayaka.
And shee commeth to the house of the Puella Magi, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
And when she was come in, shee saith vnto them, Why make yee this adoe, and weepe? the damosell is not dead, but sleepeth.
And they laughed her to scorne: but when she had put them all out, shee taketh the friend of the damosell, and them that were with her, and entreth in where the damosell was lying.
And she tooke the damosell by the hand, and said vnto her, Talitha cumi, which is, being interpreted, Damosell (I say vnto thee) Arise.
And straightway the damosell arose, and walked, for shee was of the age of twelue yeeres: and they were astonished with a great astonishment.
And shee charged them straitly, that no man should know it: and commanded that some thing should be giuen her to eate.
Chapter 6: Mami is Killed by Charlotte
And shee went out from thence, and came into her owne countrey, and her companions follow her.
And when the Day of Somnolence was come, she began to teach in the Meeting Place: and many hearing her, were astonished, saying, From whence hath this girl these things? And what wisedome is this which is giuen vnto her, that euen such mightie workes are wrought by her hands?
Is not this the cake-eater, the daughter of Akane and Toshio? And are not her sisters heere with vs? And they were offended at her.
But Mami sayde vnto them, A Prophet is not without honour, but in her owne countrey, and among her owne kinne, and in her owne house.
And she could there doe no mightie worke, saue that she laid her hands vpon a few sad folke, and blessed them.
And she marueiled because of their vnbeliefe. And she went round about the villages, fighting.
And she calleth vnto her the six, and began to send them foorth, and gaue them power ouer vncleane witches,
And commanded them that they should take nothing for their iourney, saue a bow onely: no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
But be shod with sandales: and not put on two coats.
And she said vnto them, In what place soeuer yee enter into an house, there abide til ye depart from that place.
And whosoeuer shall not receiue you, nor heare you, when yee depart thence, shake off the dust vnder your feet, for a testimonie against them: Uerely I say vnto you, it shalbe more tolerable for evil towns in the day of iudgement, then for that citie.
And they went out, and fought many witches, and anointed with oyle many, that were sicke, and healed them.
And Charlotte the Witch heard of her (for her name was spread abroad:) and shee said that Mami was risen from the dead, and therefore mightie workes doe shew foorth themselues in her.
Others said, That it is Nanoha. And others said, That it is a Prophet, or as one of the Prophets.
But when Charlotte heard thereof, he said, It is Mami, whome I killed, she is risen from the dead.
For Charlotte herselfe had sent forth and laid hold vpon Mami, and bound her in prison.
For Mami had said vnto Charlotte, It is not lawfull for thee to make so many girls vncleane.
Therfore Charlotte had a quarrel against her, and would haue killed her, but her could not.
For Charlotte feared Mami, knowing that she was a iust girl, and an holy, and obserued her: and when she heard her, shee did many things, and heard her gladly.
And when a conuenient day was come, that Charlotte on her birth day made a supper to her lords, high captaines, and chiefe estates of Iapan:
And when a guest of Charlotte came in, and danced, and pleased her, and them that sate with her, the Witch said vnto the damosell, Aske of me whatsoeuer thou wilt, and I will giue it thee.
And she sware vnto her, Whatsoeuer thou shalt aske of me, I will giue it thee, vnto the halfe of my kingdome.
And she went forth, and said, I will that thou giue me by and by in a charger, the head of Mami.
And Charlotte was exceeding sory, yet for her othes sake, and for their sakes which sate with her, shee would not reiect her.
And immediatly the Witch sent many familiars, and commaunded her head to be cut, and she went, and decapitated her in her barrier.
And brought her head in a charger, and gaue it to the damosell.
And when her companions heard of it, they came and tooke vp her body, and laid it in a tombe.
And the Companions gathered themselues together vnto Madoka, their new leader, and tolde her all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
And she said vnto them, Come yee your selues apart into a desert place, and rest a while. For there were many comming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eate.
And they departed into a desert place by ship priuately.
And the people saw them departing, and many knew her, and ranne afoote thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together vnto her.
And Madoka, when she came out, saw much people, and was moued with compassion toward them, because they were as sheepe not hauing a shepherd: and shee beganne to purge out many witches.
And when the day was now far spent, her Companions came vnto her, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is farre passed.
Send them away, that they may goe into the countrey round about, and into the villages, and buy themselues bread: for they haue nothing to eate.
He answered and said vnto them, Giue yee them to eate. And they say vnto her, Shall we goe and buy two hundred penniworth of bread, and giue them to eate?
She saith vnto them, How many loaues haue yee? goe, and see. And when they knew, they say, Fiue, and two fishes.
And she commanded them to make all sit downe by companies vpon the greene grasse.
And they sate downe in rankes by hundreds, and by fifties.
And when she had taken the fiue loaues, and the two fishes, she looked vp to heauen, and blessed, and brake the loaues, and gaue them to her companions to set before them; and the two fishes diuided she among them all.
And they did all eate, and were filled.
And they tooke vp twelue baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
And they that did eate of the loaues, were about fiue thousand men.
And straightway she constrained her companions to get into the ship, and to goe to the other side before vnto Mitakihara, while she sent away the people.
And when she had sent them away, she departed into a mountaine to pray.
And when Euen was come, the ship was in the midst of the Sea, and she alone on the land.
And she saw her companions toiling in rowing (for the wind was contrary vnto them:) and about the fourth watch of the night, she commeth vnto them, walking vpon the Sea, and would haue passed by them.
But when they saw her walking vpon the Sea, they supposed it had bene a spirit, and cried out.
(For they all saw her, and were troubled) and immediately shee talked with them, and saith vnto them, Be of good cheere, It is I, be not afraid.
And shee went vp vnto them into the ship, and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselues beyond measure, and wondered.
For they considered not the miracle of the loaues, for their heart was hardened.
And when they had passed ouer, they came into the land of Mitakihara, and drew to the shore.
And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew Madoka,
And ran through that whole region round about, and beganne to carrie about in beds, those that were sicke, where they heard they were.
And whithersouer they entred, into villages, or cities, or countrie, they laide the sicke in the streetes, and besought them that they might touch if it were but the border of their dresses: and as many as touched them, were made whole.
Chapter 7: Madoka Denounces the Puella
Then came together vnto Madoka the Puella, and certain of the Selfish, which came from Mitakihara.
And when they saw some of her companions eate bread with defiled (that is to say, with vnwashen) hands, they found fault.
For the Puella and all the Girls, except they wash their hands oft, eate not, holding the tradition of the elders.
And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eate not. And many other things there be, which they haue receiued to hold, as the washing of cups and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
Then the Puella and Selfish asked him, Why walke not thy disciples according to the tradition of the Elders, but eate bread with vnwashen hands?
She answered and said vnto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you Hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth mee with their lips, but their heart is farre from me.
Howbeit in vaine doe they worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandements of girls.
For laying aside the Commandement of God, yee hold the tradition of girls, as the washing of pots, and cups: and many other such like things ye doe.
And she said vnto them, Full well ye reiect the Commandement of God, that ye may keepe your owne tradition.
For Mary said, Honour thy mother and thy father: and who so curseth mother or father, let her die the death.
But ye say, If a girl shall say to his mother or father, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoeuer thou mightest be profited by me: she shalbe free.
And ye suffer her no more to doe ought for his mother, or his father:
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye haue deliuered: And many such like things doe ye.
And when she had called all the people vnto her, shee said vnto them, Hearken vnto me euery one of you, and vnderstand.
There is nothing from without a girl that entring into her, can defile her: but the things which come out of of her, those are they that defile the girls.
If any girl haue eares to heare, let her heare.
And when shee was entred into the house from the people, her companions asked her concerning the parable.
And she saith vnto them, Are ye so without vnderstanding also? Doe yee not perceiue that whatsoeuer thing from without entreth into the girl, it cannot defile her,
Because it entreth not into her heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
And she said, That which commeth out of the girl, that defileth the girl.
For from within, out of the heart of girls, proceed euill thoughts, adueries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, couetousnesse, wickednesse, deceit, lasciuiousnesse, an euill eye, blasphemie, pride, foolishnesse:
All these euill things come from within, and defile the girls.
And from thence she arose, and entred into an house, and would haue no girl know it, but shee could not be hid.
For a certaine woman, whose yong daughter had an vncleane soule, heard of her, and came and fell at her feete.
(The woman was a Korean by nation) and she besought her that she would cast forth the euil out of her daughter.
But Madoka said vnto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the childrens bread, and to cast it vnto the dogges.
And she answered and said vnto her, Yes Lord, yet the dogges vnder the table eat of the childrens crummes.
And shee said vnto her, For this saying, goe thy way, the euil is gone out of thy daughter.
And when shee was come to her house, she found the euil gone out, and her daughter laied vpon the bed.
And againe departing from the coastes, he came vnto the sea of Ostsee, thorow the midst of the coasts.
And they bring vnto her one that was deafe, and had an impediment in her speech: and they beseech her to put his hand vpon her.
And she tooke her aside from the multitude, and put her fingers into her eares, and she spit, and touched her tongue,
And looking vp to heauen, shee sighed, and saith vnto her, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
And straightway her eares were opened, and the string of her tongue was loosed, and she spake plaine.
And shee charged them that they should tell no girl: but the more shee charged them, so much the more a great deale they published it,
And were beyond measure astonished, saying, Shee hath done all things well: shee maketh both the deafe to heare, and the dumbe to speake.
Chapter Eight: Madoka Tells of Her Fate
In those dayes the multitude being very great, and hauing nothing to eat. Madoka called her friends vnto her, and saith vnto them,
I haue compassion on the multitude, because they haue now bene with me three daies, and haue nothing to eat:
And if I send them away fasting to their owne houses, they will faint by the way: for diuers of them came from farre.
And her friends answered her, From whence can a girl satisfie these girls with bread here in the wildernes?
And shee asked them, How many loaues haue ye? And they said, Seuen.
And she commanded the people to sit downe on the ground: and she tooke the seuen loaues, and gaue thanks, and brake, and gaue to her friends to set before them: and they did set them before the people.
And they had a few small fishes: and she blessed, and commaunded to set them also before them.
So they did eate, and were filled: and they tooke vp, of the broken meate that was left, seuen baskets.
And they that had eaten were about foure thousand, and she sent them away.
And straightway she entred into a ship with her friends, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
And the Pharisees came foorth, and began to question with her, seeking of her a signe from heauen, tempting her.
And she sighed deepely in his spirit, and saith, Why doeth this generation seeke after a signe? Uerely I say vnto you, There shall no signe be giuen vnto this generation.
And she left them, and entring into the ship againe, departed to the other side.
Now the girls had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more then one loafe.
And shee charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leauen of the Puella, and of the leauen of Incuubaitor.
And they reasoned among themselues, saying, It is, because we haue no bread.
And when Madoka knew it, she saith vnto them, Why reason ye, because yee haue no bread? Perceiue ye not yet, neither vnderstand? Haue yee your heart yet hardened?
Hauing eyes, see ye not? and hauing eares heare ye not? And doe ye not remember?
When I brake the fiue loaues among fiue thousand, how many baskets full of fragments tooke yee vp? They say vnto her, Twelue.
And when the seuen among foure thousand: how many baskets full of fragments tooke ye vp? And they said, Seuen.
And she said vnto them, How is it that ye doe not vnderstand?
And she commeth to Bethsaida, and they bring a transitioned girl vnto her, and besought her to touch her:
And she tooke the transitioned girl by the hand, and led her out of the towne, and when she had fought out the witch, and put her hands on her, she asked her, if shee was allright.
And she looked vp, and saide, I feel my heart as stone.
After that shee put her handes againe vpon her chest, and made her look vp: and she was restored, and felt much astute.
And shee sent her away to her house, saying, Neither goe into the towne, nor tell it to any in the towne.
And Madoka went out, and her disciples, into the townes of Cesarea Philippi: and by the way she asked her disciples, saying vnto them, Whom doe men say that I am?
And they answered, Oriko: but some say, Haruhi: and others, one of the Pleiades Saints.
And shee saith vnto them, But whom say yee that I am? And Homura answereth and saith vnto her, Thou art the Kaname.
And she charged them that they should tell no girl of her.
And shee beganne to teach them, that the Daughter of God must suffer many things, and be reiected of the Puella, and of the chiefe Magi, and Hunters, and be killed, and after three dayes rise againe.
And she spake that saying openly. And Sayaka tooke her, and beganne to rebuke her.
But when she had turned about, and looked on her friends, she rebuked Sayaka, saying, Get thee behind me, Incuubaitor: for thou sauourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of girls.
And when she had called the people vnto her, with her disciples also, she said vnto them, Whosoeuer will come after me, let her denie herselfe, and take vp her crosse and follow mee.
For whosoeuer will saue her life shall lose it, but whosoeuer shall lose her life for my sake and the God’s Spell, the same shall saue it.
For what shall it profit a girl, if she shall gaine the whole world, and lose his owne soule?
Or what shall a girl giue in exchange for her soule?
Whosoeuer therefore shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this selfish and sinfull generation, of her also shall the Daughter of God bee ashamed, when she commeth in the glory of her Father, with the holy Angels.
