A TABLET ADDRESSED TO "HIM WHO WILL BE MADE MANIFEST"
This is an epistle from this lowly servant to the All-Glorious Lord -- He Who hath been aforetime and will be hereafter made manifest. Verily He is the Most Manifest, the Almighty.
IN THE NAME OF THE SOVEREIGN LORD, THE LORD OF POWER. (3:1)

GLORIFIED is He before Whom all the dwellers of earth and heaven bow down in adoration and unto Whom all men turn in supplication. He is the One Who holdeth in His grasp the mighty kingdom of all created things and unto Him shall all return. He is the One Who revealeth whatsoever He willeth and by His injunction 'Be Thou' all things have come into being. (3:3)

This is an epistle from the letter 'Tha'[1] unto Him Who will be made manifest through the power of Truth -- He Who is the All-Glorious, the Best Beloved -- to affirm that all created things as well as myself bear witness for all time that there is none other God but Thee, the Omnipotent, the Self-Subsisting; that Thou art God, there is no God besides Thee and that all men shall be raised up to life through Thee.[1=This is the first letter of 'Thamarih' which means 'fruit'. Shoghi Effendi, in his writings, refers to the Bab as the 'Thamarih' (fruit) of the Tree of God's successive Revelations. (See Shoghi Effendi's letter to the Baha'is of the East dated Naw-Ruz 110, page 5.)] (3:4)

Lauded and glorified be Thy name, O Lord, my God! (3:5)
