1 When I was ten years of age, I departed from the cave by night while my mother and my nurse slept and the messenger of Elohim met me and led me to the city of Shalom where Noaḥ and his son Shĕm dwelt, and no man knew where I was.

2 And I dwelt with Noaḥ and Shĕm for thirty-nine years, being instructed in all the Ways of the Most High Elohim.

3 And finding great happiness and peace and rest therein, I sought for the bireḵoth of the Fathers and I received, under the direction of Noaḥ and Shĕm, those instructions whereby I might enter into the Order of the Ancients and I became a rightful heir and kohĕn ha’gadol, holding the right belonging to the Fathers. For I was ushered into the Assembly of the First-born and tasted the fruits of ḥai of the shamayim.
