Chapter Summary

Judas went (back) to be imprisoned and likewise Tertia and Mygdonia and Narkia, these too went (back) to be imprisoned. When Judas had finished speaking to them, they entered into dark house. Judas said: "Our Life-giver and bearer of many things for our sake, let these doors be as they were and let them be sealed with their seals". King Mazdai sat in judgment and sent and fetched Judas and stripped him and put a girdle round his loins and they made him stand before Mazdai. People were running after Judas to rescue him but the soldiers were going on his right and on his left and were holding spears and that one of the princes was holding him by his hand and supporting him. When Judas had prayed thus he said to the soldiers: "Come, fulfill the will of him who sent you".
