It was night time, and he was alone. He went towards the city. When he entered into the city, he was so glad. He knocked a house that was of marble and had square pillars of marble before it. Soon, he entered the house and reached the long hall of feasting. He saw there lying on a couch of sea-purple one whose hair was crowned with red roses and whose lips were red with wine. He went behind him and touched him “Why do you live like this?”And the young man turned around and recognized him, and said, “I was a leper once, and you healed me now tell me, How else should I live ?”Then he went again into the street. He saw one whose face and raiment was painted and whose feet were shod with pearls. He went slowly behind her as a hunter, a young man who wore a cloak of two colors. Now the face of the woman was fair as an idol, and the eyes of the young man were bright with lust. He touched the hand of the young man and said to him, “Why do you look at this woman and in such wise ?”Then the young man turned around and recognized him and said, “I was blind once, and you gave me sight. Now at what else should I look ?”And he ran forward and touched the painted clothing of the woman and said to her “, Is there no other way in which to walk save the way of sin ?”The woman recognized him and laughed and said, “But you forgave me my sins, and the way is a pleasant way “And he passed out of the city. Then he saw a young man seated by the roadside which was weeping. He went towards him and asked, “Why are you weeping ?”The young man looked up and recognized him and said, “But I was dead once, and you raised me from the dead. What else should I do but weep?”
