"When Amoun was living as a solitary in Nitria, a child suffering from rabies was brought to him, bound with a chain. For a rabid dog had bitten him and given him the disease. His suffering was so unbearable that his whole body was convulsed by it. When Amoun saw the child's parents coming to entreat him, he said, "Why are you troubling me, my friends, seeking something which is beyond my merits, when the remedy lies in your own hands? Give back to the widow the ox which you have killed surreptitiously, and your child will be restored to you in good health." Their crime having thus been exposed, they happily did what they had been told; and when the father prayed, the child instantly recovered."
