More on Restoration Day, 1843.

“THE VICTORY OF WRONGDOERS IS BUT FOR A MOMENT.”

Who does not know the truth of this statement? He must read the Bible; it is there that he will see the truth in this statement. What of Pharaoh [Parao], the ruler of Egypt [Aigupita], the one who overburdened and oppressed the Israelites? Did he not die at once, along with all of his warriors in the Red Sea? And with his quick death in the Red Sea, what happened to Moses and his people? Did they not sing, exalt, rejoice, and praise God for his saving them from the hands of their enemy? Read Exodus [Pukaana] chapter 14 and chapter 15, and there it will be clarified.

[Considering this particular outcome, this was quite a boost for Christianity.]

  1. if i may rephrase that in the context of our Hawaiian social and cultural traditions and practices which are more relevant to Hawai’i than western religious doctrine, the Hawaiian philosophical concept of pono, the state of universal harmony and balance, means that wrongful actions, like those committed by the u.s. government against the kingdom, nation and people of Hawai’i will be overturned and righted because malama pono, restoring and maintaining harmony and balance, is a universal law that no man or nation can ever overcome for long.
