3. 14 Fickle Valar - Dean Maia of Este
Manwe hesitated before Eru.
"What more do you wish? Ask of me, there is no offense in questions."
Manwe spoke to Eru saying: "A new torment comes to your Children from Sauron. They resist with the spirit given to them by the Flame Imperishable and the strength given by Your grace, but they struggle. We would aid them, even if just by advice through dream or foretelling given to them. What may we do?"
Eru answered: "The Great Music that created Arda did not include your aid in this Theme. My children must overcome these torments themselves. It will rebound only to their increased power, your greater love for them, and My devising of works greater.
Manwe answered: "Dear-bought these works will be accounted."
Eru said: "But well-bought and well remembered. Fear naught your time to aid will return."
Manwe left the presence of Eru and came to the Ring of Doom, Mahanaxar, where the Valar held council and reported to them the doom of Eru. And the Valar sat and mourned for the Children.
