Third Edition

Truly I, Tsukihi, am impatiently hastening to let you know this one truth as quickly as possible.

But, however earnestly I, Tsukihi, may request it, you close to Me do not comply with Me. How regrettable it is!


I sincerely desire to quickly show this single-heartedness. The heart of Tsuki-Hi is filled with urgency.

However earnestly I, Tsuki-Hi, asked those close to Me, no one listened with understanding. How disappointing!

9:40, 41 While I am hastening and telling you various things out of My wholehearted desire to inform you of My true intention as soon as possible, it is exceedingly frustrating that those of you who are close by have not been convinced no matter how much I try to persuade you.
