Lord then chef and the secretary of the King He'll Kaya the priests has given me a book at and he's like what's a book that had been invented yet. They won't BE BETTER FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. What does He? Here's some papyrus with AIN'T GONNA. My man not complicate this has to say papyrus so he gives them a collection of scrolls words books or whatever so he'll try the priests give me a book. Shafie read it before the King. So verse eleven. When the king heard the words of the book of the law. He tore his clothes. Why did here's close? What's that mean? Well tearing in the close it was a traditional way that people would show either. Har Or astonishment shocked or like overwhelmed with like. Oh my gosh. 'cause I know I will sometime say like I like. It's so hot outside after tear my garbage. That feels like not using it correctly. Like maybe not in a holy way. Vote but it's often like people will put ashes on their forehead. Go Wear sackcloth. They'll tear their garments. This is a way of also showing grief and I think that's what he's doing here it. I've always thought about it In the sense of when you don't have the vocabulary to express something. Yeah this is how you express that you can express something you know what I mean. And he's feeling there's this sadness of like you've just read this law and you put you into together that like. Oh I live somewhere where we are not doing.

If you didn't live you're not going. Oh I I'm really very aware of how things were done in the sixties like. I'm very aware that even though I was born until like eight years ago or in this point eighteen years ago I think about all the time of like how they ran the government and how they money an agriculture and all the things and I think for him he's just like he he does understand his responsibility..
