Of Ĕliyahu the naḇi

1 The record of Ĕliyahu the Tishbite which he wrote for his talmid Elisha whom he called from his field in Aḇĕl Meḥolah unto the qodesh order of Elohim.

2 Behold, I, Ĕliyahu, write this record with mine own hand and no man shall see it until I have ascended into the shamayim.

3 Then shall my authority and the keys of my Kehunnah which is the Kehunnah of the Fathers pass to my son Elisha by right of lineage and obedience.

4 This Kehunnah came down to me from the Fathers by lineage, for I am a descendant of Yahoshua the son of Nun who was descended from Ephrayim the son of Yosĕph through whom the rights of the First-born descended in Yisra’ĕl.

5 These rights I received when I was but a lad from my Father before he was martyred for the testimony of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I have appointed Elisha, who is my adopted son, to be my successor in bearing off this work.

6 Nevertheless, not all of my rights shall rest upon him, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 hath said, behold, my servant Ĕliyahu shall not die but shall bear with him the keys of his ministry unto the city of the shamayim until the last days when I shall send him unto one of his seed whom I shall raise up to bear the fullness of this ministry again among the sons of men.

7 But he shall leave with Elisha those keys necessary to continue his work in organizing the Schools of the Neḇi’im and the Order of Ḥanoḵ that the sons of the neḇi’im may continue to live after the qodesh order of Elohim.
