BeschreibungExcerpt from A Story of the Hebrew People
It was a spring day many hundred years ago, when the people of Israel lived in Palestine, and Saul was their king.
Tired, hot, and dusty, the laborers toiled from terrace to terrace up the hill, to the gate of the little walled city of Bethlehem, men and boys, women and girls. The gate stood wide open, and a brilliant sunset made the strong watch-towers that flanked it on either side shine as if burnished with gold. A beautiful golden light hung over the gardens and fruit-trees that spread close to the walls on every side, and the distant olive groves looked almost black against the background of fire. Overhead the sky was very blue. The people were coming in from their work in the fields and vineyards, driving cows and goats before them.
Arrived at the wide, open space inside the gate, many stopped for a few moments to refresh themselves with a drink of cool water from the well in the center, or to lounge on the benches near by and compare notes on the day's work.
