Once a magistrate came to see Simon and the clergy who went on ahead said to him, "Abba, get ready, for the judge has heard of you and is coming to be blessed by you."

So, Simon covered himself with sackcloth and took bread and cheese in his hand, and sat down in his doorway and began to eat it.

The magistrate arrived with his retinue. When they saw Simon they despised him and said, "Is this the hermit about whom we heard such great things?" They turned around and went straight home.
