Four swords guard an ivory bowl,
Bones within its hold.
One jewel to house another,
A story to be told.
Of love and grief and God’s relief,
Where sin is all washed free,
To mark where fourteen claimed the last
The best among the three.

I don't think this has anything to do with the answer, but the riddle reminds me of the tajma hall for some reason.
