“THE people, during the absence of the Báb, re-enacted …”

THE people, during the absence of the Báb, re-enacted the episode of the Calf by setting up a blaring figure which embodied animal features in human form 1
Whenever the people ask Thee of the appointed Hour say: Verily the knowledge of it is only with My Lord, 2 Who is the Knower of the unseen. There is none other God but Him—He Who hath created you from a single soul, 3 and I have no control over what profiteth Me or harmeth Me, but as My Lord pleaseth. 4 Indeed God is Self-Sufficient and He, My Lord, standeth supreme over all things. Chapter LXIX.
