'And as I have decreed thee to be superior to all other races, I decree my Fourth Commandment to be ‘Thou Shalt Master the Other Races and Yoke Them with Your Might.’ For you will suffer no Lord save your fathers and through them me.
I grant you mastery over the Greenskins in all their forms, Orc, Hobgoblin, Goblin, Gnoblar and Snotling alike.
I grant you mastery over the frail Elves, for weakness must be despised in all forms.
I grant you mastery over the Children of the Old Ones, though far off they be.
I grant you mastery over the Children of Chaos, mutant, Gor, Ungor and Fimir.
I grant you mastery over the Daemon, who swim the Empyrean.
I grant you mastery over Mankind, whose time has yet to come.
I grant you mastery over Dragonkind, from greatest to smallest.
I grant you mastery over Ogrekind, from fattest to slimmest.
I grant you mastery over all beasts that walk the land, swim in the seas and fly in the air.
And these masteries I grant you from this day forth as your birthright, for I have decreed thee to be superior to all other races and as it has been written, my Fourth Commandment is ‘Thou Shalt Master the Other Races and Yoke Them with Your Might.’
- inscription found on the fourth of the one hundred and forty-four bronze tablets in the Temple of Hashut atop Mingol Zharr-Naggrund. It is from here that Dawi Zharr justify their enslavement of other races. This commandment has caused some discussion among the Sorcerer-Prophets in days past as the tablet neglects to mention several races such as the Skaven or Giants. This was reconciled by a decree that any race not explicitly stated is to be considered a beast, and thus the right to enslave them falls under the last mastery. There has also been some speculation that this is not the original Fourth Commandment and that the tablet baring the original was lost or destroyed at some point, accounting for how some of the races mentioned were unknown to the Dawi at the time the Commandments were written. Others counter this argument with the claim that Hashut’s knowledge and foresight are greater than any Dawi, and that it was he, not the Twelve Fathers who wrote the Commandments.
