130. When he had

When he had
World-knowledge
Everybody called him father.

When he had
Great fortune
Everybody called him brother.

When he had
Heaven-wisdom
Everybody called him friend.

When he lost
Everything
Everybody denied him everything.
But
God placed him unconditionally
On His transcendental Throne.
