1401  See image i038. The words start at the bottom of the column and go to the top. Interpretation of the symbols of this image was omitted from the 1882 and 1891 Oahspe editions. In place of it, that editor suggested we see the tablets of Bienei and Se'moin for interpretation. But upon examination, they seem to offer little direct help. In this modern series edition, for convenience of the reader and student, the words on the tablet have been rendered into text verses 35/I.1.1-11. It is recommended that the student verify these spellings.






i038 Tablet of Zerl. For interpretation, see Bienei (Poit), and Se'moin (Kii). Begin at 1, and read from bottom; then at 2, etc.   (see image only)

35/I.1.12. The sacred birds of Zerl were written by an outline drawing of each and every one; but the pronunciation (in imitation of its speech) was different in the whole of the thirty-four tribes.

35/I.1.13. The tame quadrupeds had fewer names.

35/I.1.14. In Iz or Ez there were only twenty‑two tribes, and, being the most sacred tribes of the west of the continent, their pronunciation varied less.
