>"Servant, obey me." >Yes my lord, yes. >"I will do something helpful for my country." >Do it, my lord, do it. The man who does something helpful for his country -- his helpful deed wins him the favor of Marduk. >"No servant, I will not do something helpful for my country." >Do it not, my lord, do it not.

Who is broad enough to embrace the earth? >"No servant, I shall kill you and send you ahead of me." >Would my lord wish to live even three days without his servant?
