Moses went away and first he met the drunken man. He told him, "God says you shall be sent to the worst possible place in hell." The man said, "God spoke of me?" and he was so overjoyed that he could not contain himself but began to dance, just as a poor man might be overjoyed if he heard that a king had spoken of him, even if the king had said nothing good of him. Then he said, "How happy should I be that He, the Creator and Sovereign of the universe, knows me, the great sinner." Then Moses told the pious person what God had said. He said, "Why not? I have spent all my life in the worship of God and in piety, sacrificing all else in life; and therefore I am entitled to have it."
