1 Since I was swift on my feet like a deer, my father, Ya’aqoḇ, appointed me for all missions and messages, and as a deer he baraḵ me.

2 For just as a potter knows the pot, how much it holds, and brings clay for it accordingly, so also 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 forms the body in correspondence to the spirit, and instills the spirit corresponding to the power of the body.

3 And from one to the other there is no discrepancy, not so much as a third of a hair, for by weight, and measure, and rule was all the creation made.

4 And just as the potter knows the use of each vessel and to what it is suited for, so also 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 knows the body to what extent it will persist in goodness, and when it will be dominated by evil.

5 For there is no inclination or thought which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 knows not, since He created every human being according to His own image.

6 As a person’s strength, so also is his work; as is his mind, so also is his skill. As is his plan, so also is his achievement; as is his heart, so is his speech; as is his eye, so also is his sleep; as is his soul, so also is his thought, whether on the Torah of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, or on the law of Beliar.

7 As there is a distinction between light and darkness, between seeing and hearing, thus there is a distinction between man and man and between woman and woman. And it is not to be said that the one is like the other either in face or in mind.

8 For Elohim made all things good in their order; the five senses in the head; to the head he attached the neck, in addition to the hair for the enhancement of appearance; then the heart for understanding; the belly for excretion from the stomach; the windpipe for health; the liver for anger; the gallbladder for bitterness; the spleen for laughter; the kidneys for craftiness; the loins for power; the lungs for drawing in air; the hips for strength and so on.

9 So then, my children, let all your works be done in order with good intent in the fear of Elohim, and do nothing disorderly, in scorn, or not in an appropriate time.

10 If you tell the eye to hear, it cannot; so you are unable to perform the works of light while you are in darkness.
