The Messiah

   On the twelfth day of the twelfth month of the twelfth year after the great annihilation,
   a cry of the slaughtered Nation came to the Almighty,
   and the Eternal Ruler sent his anointed one to the remnants of the Nation.

   And when he was born the following year,
   they circumcised him, cutting his foreskin seven times,
   so to make a sign of his presence known to the Nations.
