Liber I.5
(ll. 235-236) "...Eat freely of the fruit of every other tree. From that one tree
refrain. Beware of its fruit. And ye shall know no dearth of pleasant things."
(ll. 237-245) Eagerly they bowed them down before the King of heaven, and gave
Him thanks for all, for His teachings and counsels. And He gave them that land to
dwell in. Then the Holy Lord, the Steadfast King, departed into heaven. And the
creatures of His hand abode together on the earth. They had no whit of care to
grieve them, but only to do the will of God for ever. Dear were they unto God as
long as they would keep His holy word.
