5:59 That people come to Jiba to summon or investigate—I draw them here because of My deep intention.

『おふでさき註釈』、p. 81


Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:58

It is God’s intention that those in authority come to summon Oyasama and to exercise control. Their actions arose entirely from a divine intention that is beyond human thinking. This intention is, in part, to sprinkle the fragrance of the teachings on the “high mountains.” It is also to bring the path to the fore in society at large. The verse indicates a proactive attitude.
