Text Commentary

1And now, my son Methuselah, 1 GMQUD′D′ a om. I have shown you everything, and the whole law of 2 U ‘all the laws of’; GMQTD′a ‘the law of all’; D′ ‘the law and all’. the stars of heaven is complete. 2And he showed me the whole law for these, for every day, and for every time, and for every period of rule, 3 and for every period of rule: D′ om.; GMQT(U)D′a ‘which is for ruling’. and for every year, and for the end thereof, according to its command for every month and every 3week; and the waning of the moon which occurs in the sixth gate, for in that sixth gate its light becomes full, and after that it is the 4beginning of the month; and 4 the month; and: so Eth.II, but possibly corrupt for ‘the waning; and’; Eth.I om. the waning which occurs in the first gate, at its proper time, until one hundred and seventy seven days are complete (reckoned according to weeks: twenty five weeks and 5two days); and how 5 and how: GMQUD′D′a om; C′ om. ‘how’. it falls behind the sun, according to the law of the stars, by exactly five days in one period of time, and when this place which you see has been traversed. 6Such is the appearance and the likeness of 6 Lit. ‘from’. every light which Uriel, the great angel who is their leader, showed to me.
