The Bright Sun Brings it to Light
A tailor kills a Jew who threatens him with revenge with the help of the sun. Years later, the same thing is said to have happened. But how?
A journeyman tailor was traveling around the world on his trade and once he could not find work, and his poverty was so great that he had not a penny to live on. At that time he met on the way a Jew, and he thought he had a lot of money with him and pushed God out of his heart, went towards him and said, "Give me your money, or I'll kill you." Then the Jew said, "Give me life, I have no money and no more than eight hellers." But the tailor said, "You have money, and that's what you want out of it," used violence and beat him until he was close to death. And like the Jew now die wanted to, he said the last word "the clear sun will bring it to light!“ And died with it. The tailor reached into his pocket and looked for money, but he found no more than eight hellers, as the Jew had said. So he picked him up, carried him behind a bush and pulled on his hand rk. Having traveled a long time, he came to a town to work for a master, who had a beautiful daughter, with whom he fell in love, and married her, and had a good, happy marriage.
For a long time, when they already had two children, father-in-law and mother-in-law died, and the young people ran the household alone. One morning, while the man was sitting on the table in front of the window, the woman brought him the coffee, and when he had poured it into the saucer and was just about to drink it, the sun shone on it and the reflection on the wall above shone like this and and made squiggles on it. Then the tailor looked up and said, "Yes, we'd like to bring them to light and can't!" The woman said, "Hey, dear man, what's that? What do you mean by that?” He replied, “I'm not allowed to tell you that.” But she said, “If you love me, you must tell me” and gave him the very best words, no one should know it again, and left him none Quiet. Then he said, years ago, when he was wandering and without money, he had killed a Jew, and the Jew, in his last fear of death, had spoken the words "the clear sun will bring it to light!" Well that would have been wanted to bring the sun out, and would have blinked on the wall and made squiggles, but she couldn't have done it. After that he asked her specifically not to tell anyone else, otherwise he would lose his life, and she promised that too. But when he had sat down to work, she went to her godmother and confided the story to her, but she was not allowed to tell anyone again; but before three days had passed, the whole city knew, and the tailor came before the court and was judged. The clear sun brought it to light.
