This paper analyses some of the terminology that Bahaullah uses in one of his earliest tablets, the Tablet of All Food (Law-i Kull ut- am), which is addressed to a Babi, j Mrz Kamlud-Dn Narq, who visited Bahaullah in Baghdad. In particular the hierarchy of the spiritual worlds is examined under the headings of the four terms that Bahaullah uses to describe this hierarchy: Hht, Lht, Jabart and Malakt.
