Third Edition

For Me, Tsukihi, one and all are My children. So I love you with overflowing affection.

Yet in each innermost heart of all of you, dust is equally piled up so high.

Unless this dust is cleanly swept away, it will be impossible to save you, however impatiently I, Tsukihi, so desire.


To Me, Tsuki-Hi, all of you are My children, I think of you all with overflowing love.

But the innermost heart of everyone of you is covered with piles of dust.

Unless this dust is cleanly swept away, the deep concern of Tsuki-Hi will be to naught.

8:60–62 To Me, Oyagami, the entire world are all My children. Although I love you with all My heart, because there is much dust piled in the minds of each of you, no matter how dear you are to Me, I cannot inform you of My true intention unless this dust is cleanly swept away.
