Charles < < Chapter LXXIX / Chapter 78 > > Laurence

LXXIX

1And now, my son, I have shown thee everything, and the law of all the stars of the heaven is 2completed. And he showed me all the laws of these for every day, and for every season of bearing rule, and for every year, and for its going forth, and for the order prescribed to it every month 3and every week: And the waning of the moon which takes place in the sixth portal: for in this 4sixth portal her light is accomplished, and after that there is the beginning of the waning: [And the waning] which takes place in the first portal in its season, till one hundred and seventy-seven 5days are accomplished: reckoned according to weeks, twenty-five [weeks] and two days. She falls behind the sun and the order of the stars exactly five days in the course of one period, and when 6this place which thou seest has been traversed. Such is the picture and sketch of every luminary which Uriel the archangel, who is their leader, showed unto me.

 

78

78:1 And now, my son Mathusala, I have shown you everything; and [the account of] every ordinance of the stars of heaven is finished.

78:2 He showed me every ordinance respecting these, which [takes place] at all times and in all seasons under every influence, in all years, at the arrival and under the rule of each, during every month and every week. [He showed me] also the decrease of the moon, which is effected in the sixth gate; for in that sixth gate is its light consumed.

78:3 From this is the beginning of the month; and its decrease is effected in the sixth gate in its period, until a hundred and seventy-seven days are completed; according to the mode of calculation by weeks, twenty-five [weeks] and two days.

78:4 [Its period] is less that that of the sun, according to the ordinance of the stars, by five days in one half year (84) precisely.

(84) In one half year. Literally, "in one time" (Laurence, p. 110).

78:5 When that [their] visible situation is completed. Such is the appearance and likeness of every luminary, which Uriel, the great angel who conducts them, showed to me.
