93. HOW THE MEN OF ROME DESTROYED THE FAITH
And after they had waited 3 months_now Zion came into the country of ETHIOPIA at the beginning of the first month in the language of the HEBREWS, and in the Greek TARMON and in GE'EZ MIYAZAYA,on the sixth or seventh day-they wrote down the Law and the names and they deposited the writng for a memorial for the later days, so that what was right should be done for the pavilion of ZION, thereby, and so that the glory of the kings of ETHIOPIA and the glory of the kings of ROME might be well known. For the kings of ETHIOPIA and the kings of ROME were brethren and held the Christian Faith. Now first of all they believed in the orthodox manner in the peachings of the Apostles up to the time of CONSTANTINE and ELENI the Queen,brought forth the wood of the Cross, and the kings of ROME continued to believe one hundred and thirty years.
And afterwards, SATAN, who hath been the enemy of man from of old, rose up, and seduced the people of the country of ROME, and they corrupted the Faith of CHRIST, and they introduced heresy into the Church of God by the mouth of NESTORIUS. And NESTORIUS, and ARIUS, and YABASO were those into whose hearts he cast the same jealousy as he had cast into the heart of CAIN to slay his brother ABEL. In like manner, did their father the Devil, the enemy of the righteous and the hater of good, cast jealousy, even as DAVID said,"They speak violence in the heights of heaven, and set their mouths in the heavens and their tongue waggeth on the earth".
And those same men who know not whence they came and know not wither they are going, revile their Creator with their tongues and blaspheme His glory, while He is God, the Word of the Lord. He came down from the throne of His Godhead in that body, which He had taken. and He shall come again in glory to judge the living and he dead, and shall reward every man according to his work, for ever and ever.Amen.
And we believe thus and we adore the Holy Trinity. And those who do not believe thus are excommunicated by the Word of God, the King of heaven and earth, both in this world and in the world which is to come. And we are strong in the Orthodox Faith which the Fathers the Apostles have delivered unto us, the Faith of the Church. And thus ETHIOPIA continued to abide in her Faith until the coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, to Whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
