[For the my =
children and grandchildren in 2020, here are more "loosely =
translated passages” from Leviticus]

 

**LAWS =
PERTAINING TO DESSERT

  &nb=
sp;  For we judge between the plate that is unclean and the plate =
that is clean, saying first, if the plate is clean then you shall have =
dessert.  But of the unclean plate, the laws are =
these:

  &nb=
sp;  If you have eaten most of your meat and two bites of your =
peas, with each bite consisting of not less than three peas each, or in =
total six peas, eaten where I can see, and you have also eaten enough of =
your potatoes to fill two forks, both forkfuls eaten where I can see, =
then you shall have dessert.

  &nb=
sp;  But, if you eat a lesser number of peas and yet you eat the =
potatoes, still you shall not have dessert.  And if you eat the =
peas yet leave the potatoes uneaten, you shall not have dessert, no, not =
even a small portion thereof.

  &nb=
sp;  And if you try to deceive by moving the potatoes or peas =
around with a fork that it may appear you have eaten what you have not, =
you have fallen into iniquity, and I will know, and you shall have no =
dessert.

 

**TREATISE ON =
SCREAMNING

  &nb=
sp;  Do not scream, for it is as if you scream all the time.  =
If you are given a plate on which two foods you do not wish to touch =
each other are touching each other, your voice rises up even to the =
ceiling while you point to the offense with the finger of your right =
hand.  But I say unto you, scream not.  Only remonstrate =
gently with the server, that the server may correct the =
fault.

  &nb=
sp;  Likewise, if you receive a portion of fish from which every =
piece of herbal seasoning has not been scraped off and the herbal =
seasoning is loathsome to you and steeped in vileness, again I say to =
you, refrain from screaming.  Though the vileness overwhelm you and =
cause you to faint unto death make not that sound from within your =
throat, neither cover you face nor press you fingers against your nose, =
for I say unto you even now that I have prepared the fish as it should =
be.  Behold, I eat of it myself, yet do not =
die.
