Regarding exegesis as a fundamental specificity of the mystical language, this paper introduces one narrative pattern in the mystical anecdotes. As in most of the didactic forms, this structure is constituted by a mistake and a punishment; but in this case, the mistake takes the form of a norm. A new mistake and its punishment are then introduced and the first overt mistake is not followed by the expected punishment. The emphasis on the second mistake is the result of a hermeneutical process. This pattern, as a result, proposes a narrative description of the act of exegesis in the mystical texts. From this point of view, highlighting some mistakes and overlooking the others can show the function of mystical conventions in the mystical narration. Although this interpretation is based on the structural and narrative aspects of mystical texts, it pays attention to the linguistic and conceptual aspects of these texts as well.
