Real Holy Warriors
The book itself preached to the Tsar:
"Tsar Lazar of noble ancestry!
Which kingdom will you choose?
Will you choose the earthly kingdom?
Or will you choose the heavenly kingdom?
If you choose the earthly kingdom
All the Demon's host will perish.
If you choose the heavenly kingdom ...
All your army will perish,
And you, O Prince, will die with them."
After the Tsar heard these
He pondered all sorts of thoughts:
"Dear God, what shall I do and how shall I?
Which kingdom shall I choose?
Shall I choose the earthly kingdom?
Or shall I choose the heavenly kingdom?
The earthly kingdom lasts only a brief time,
But the heavenly kingdom always and forever."
So the Tsar chose the heavenly kingdom
Then the Demons mounted their attack against Lazar.
And the Prince Lazar perished,
Together with his entire army,
Seventy-seven thousand in number,
And all was holy and honorable
And acceptable to gracious God ...
