Greetings to you:

Does anyone know what the "eighth of the most holy lines, in the fifth Tablet of Paradise " refers to in the following Hidden Words quotation?

"In the eighth of the most holy lines, in the fifth Tablet of Paradise, He saith:
O YE THAT ARE LYING AS DEAD ON THE COUCH OF HEEDLESSNESS! Ages have passed and your precious lives are well-nigh ended, yet not a single breath of purity hath reached Our court of holiness from you. Though immersed in the ocean of misbelief, yet with your lips ye profess the one true faith of God. Him whom I abhor ye have loved, and of My foe ye have made a friend. Notwithstanding, ye walk on My earth complacent and self-satisfied, heedless that My earth is weary of you and everything within it shunneth you. Were ye but to open your eyes, ye would, in truth, prefer a myriad griefs unto this joy, and would count death itself better than this life".

Thomas, to me it explains the waywardness of the Divines in each Generation that Worship the Messenger but Fail to see the New Word returned in the New Manifestation.

They are as dead headless of what Glory they are rejecting. This would be the Muslim Divines and maybe the Babi's at the time of this Tablet.

God bless and regards Tony

Taherzadeh says:

"In The Hidden Words Baha'u'llah has mentioned certain Tablets such as 'the fifth Tablet of Paradise', and the 'Ruby Tablet', together with certain lines from them. 'Abdu'l-Baha has clearly indicated that none of these Tablets or lines has been revealed in this world. They are preserved in the Kingdom of God and in the realms of heaven."
(Adib Taherzadeh, The Revelation of Baha'u'llah vol. 1, p. 82)
