Chapter Summary

King Mazdai, when he had dismissed Judas Thomas, went to his house to sup. He was telling his wife what had happened to his kinsman Karish and said to her: "See, my sister, what has befallen that afflicted (man). In the morning Tertia arose and went to the house of Karish, her husband's kinsman, and found Mygdonia sitting on the ground with sackcloth on and ashes cast upon her and begging of the Lord that he would forgive her former sins and that she might be delivered from this world speedily. When Karish had heard these things from Mygdonia, she went in haste to the house of Sifur the general that she might see the new Apostle who had come thither. When Tertia had heard these things, she went home rejoicing and found Mazdai her husband expecting her and he had not dined.
