Chapter 198

Verses 14-17

Then the people came and said: "Teacher, tell us how to live our lives so that we too can inherit this kingdom of which you speak." After fondling a twig, the teacher turned to the people, saying:
Don't go to the Governor's house.
The Governor's house is dry.
The house is dry and full of rats.
It's a rat house, the Governor's house.
After hearing these words the people felt humbled, and returned to their villages to tell their neighbours what they had heard.
