Moses of Egypt

God commanded his loo‘is, in the high heavens, saying: Descend to the earth, to the land of Egupt, and raise me up a son capable of my voice.

The angels descended as commanded, and searched over the land of Egupt and the adjoining countries, examining into the flesh and souls of men. And they called to God, saying: The land of Egupt is overrun with spirits of darkness (drujas), and mortals have attained to see them; and they dwell together as one people, angels and mortals.

God said: Go among my chosen until you find a man capable of understanding between truth and fable; and inspire him to an I‘hin woman for my voice.

In Ellakas the loo‘is found a man, Baksa, a Fonecean Faithist, born a su‘is, and they said to him: Why are you alone in the world? Baksa said: Alas, my eyes have never seen God; my ears never heard him. I am searching for God in the life of a recluse.

The loo‘is perceived what manner of man he was, and they led him to take an I‘hin woman to wife, and she bore him a son, Hasumat.

The loo‘is guarded Hasumat till he was grown, and they spoke to him, trying him also as to his power to distinguish angel voices.

Him they also inspired to take an I‘hin woman to wife, and she bore a son, Saichabal, who was guarded in the same way. And the angels inspired Saichabal, to marry Terratha, of the line (house) of Zed. Terratha bore a daughter who was named Edamas. And Edamas bore a son by an I‘hin father without marriage, and she called his name Levi, signifying, joined together (because his toes were not separate on the right foot, nor the fingers separate on the right hand). And Levi grew to be a large man, larger than two large men.

Levi, being of the fourth birth of I‘hin blood, was not acknowledged an heir of the chosen race, the Faithists. Therefore Levi established a new line, which was called, the House of Levi.

Levi, not being eligible to a Faithist wife, was inspired by the loo‘is to take an I‘hin, Metissa, to wife. Metissa bore him a son, Kohath, who, at maturity, was admitted to the Order of Avah, the third degree of Faithists, at which time he was circumcised, and afterward called an Israelite, the name given to the Faithists of Egupt.

Kohath took to wife, Mirah, a devout worshipper of E-O-IH. Mirah bore him a son, Amram, who took to wife Yokebed, sister-in-law to Kohath, and she bore him a son, who was Moses.

Before Moses‘ birth the loo‘is perceived that he would be capable of the Father‘s voice, and they called to God saying: In the next generation, behold, your son will be born.
