Neste primeiro dia de viagem, porque as pernas ainda não estavam feitas ao caminho, a etapa não foi extremadamente longa, é preciso não esquecer que vão na mesma companhia velhos e meninos pequenos, uns que, tendo vivido, gastaram todas as suas forças e agora não podem mais fingir que as têm, outros que, por não saberem governar as que começam a ter, as esgotam em duas horas de carreiras desatinadas, como se o mundo estivesse para acabar e valesse a pena aproveitar os últimos instantes dele. Fizeram alto numa aldeia grande, chamada Isreel, onde havia um caravançarai, o qual, por serem estes dias, como dissemos, de intenso tráfego, foram encontrar numa confusão e num alarido que parecia de doidos, embora, a falar verdade, fosse o alarido maior que a confusão, porquanto, ao cabo de algum tempo, habituados vista e ouvido, podia-se pressentir, primeiro, e logo reconhecer, naquele adjunto de gente e de animais em constante movimento dentro dos quatro muros, uma vontade de ordem não organizada nem consciente, tal um formigueiro assustado que buscasse reconhecer-se e recompor-se em meio da sua própria dispersão.

E como de panos vem Maria servida e a faca com que se há-de cortar o cordão umbilical trá-la José no seu alforge, se Zelomi não preferir cortá-lo com os dentes, já a criança pode nascer, afinal um estábulo serve tão bem como uma casa, e só quem nunca teve a felicidade de dormir numa manjedoura ignora que nada há no mundo que se pareça mais com um berço.

É verdade que depois caiu numa espécie de delírio, em meio do qual chamava por Mariame como se ela estivesse ainda viva, mas curoú-se da insanidade a tempo de descobrir que a sogra, alma doutros manejos anteriores, tramava uma conspiração para derrubá-lo do poder.
