1And again I said to him, Go, and bring me the pillar in the Red Sea you spoke of. Ephippas went off and brought up the demon and the pillar, both of them carrying it from Arabia. 2But I, because these two spirits were able to shake the whole world in a single moment, cleverly outwitted them by sealing them around on this side and that, and I said, Keep careful watch. 3And they have remained supporting the pillar in the air to this day, as a demonstration of the wisdom that was given me. 4The pillar, of an enormous size, was hanging in the air, supported by the spirits; and from below the spirits supporting it looked as if they were air. 5When we looked carefully, the base of the pillar seemed slightly askew; and it is so to this day.
