Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about how lord Abukaenduli created the world. Heaven consists of seventeen layers and the earth of nine, which are all placed under the sovereignty of Abukaenduli. In the beginning there was no earth, only waters existed everywhere. It was lord Abukaenduli who made the first human pair in his likeness. He kept them in a stone jar which he put on the waters. Out of soil he created a huge piece of land, which was then placed on the back of three big fishes. When he discovered Ye Luli's misdoings the supreme god Abukaenduli, in his wrath, assigned his youngest disciple Duolongbeizi to finish the evil one off. Duolongbeizi stabbed Ye Luli to death with one blow, splitting his body apart, and the scraps turned into high mountains.

Keywords: Abukaenduli; Duolongbeizi; earth; God's creation; mountain; world; Ye Luli
