Book of the Arc of Bon Chapter 19, Chapter 20

Chapter 19

1. Eloih, Almighty, Thou, my God, Who hast delivered my people! I will sing unto Thee
a song; and the children of Israel unto Thee, O Eloih!

2. Thou art a great strength and salvation; unto Thee, Eloih, will I build my habitation;
Thou, my father’s God, O Eloih!

3. Thou art my Warrior; Eloih is Thy name, forever!

4. Thou has encompassed Pharaoh and his hosts; they are swallowed up in the sea, his
chosen captains and his warriors in the Red Sea.

5. The depths covered them up; they sank to the bottom as a stone, O Eloih!

6. Almighty Eloih: Glorious in power in Thy right hand that passed over innocent blood!

7. Thou, my God, Eloih; Wise in majesty, in Thy right hand that dashed in pieces Thy
enemy!

8. Excellency, O Thou Eloih; in graciousness that came upon them that rose up in Thy
way; Thou sentest Thy breath upon them; as stubble they were cut down by Thy righteous
sword!

9. By the breath of Thy nostrils, Thou heapedst up the waters of the sea; and the floods
stood upright by Thy voice, to entrap them in the heart of the sea!

10. Thine enemy said: I will pursue; I will overtake them; the spoil shall be mine; I will
draw the sword; my hand shall destroy them!

11. Thou didst blow with Thy wind; the sea covered them; they sank as lead in the mighty
waters.

12. Who is like unto Thee, Eloih, amongst the Gods? Who is like Thee, Glorious in
Holiness, fearful in praise and wonders, O Eloih! Thou stretchedst out Thy right hand,
and they went down into the earth.

13. Merciful Almighty, Eloih, my God, and God of my fathers; Who hast led forth Israel
and delivered her into the land of her fathers, O Eloih! Who hast guided them to a holy
habitation and peaceful one.

14. All people shall hear and be afraid; sober thought shall take hold on the inhabitants
of Palestina. And the nobles of Edom shall be amazed! The warrior of Moab;
trembling shall take hold on them, and the wild men of Kana’yan shall melt away!

15. Thou, O Eloih, shalt strike them with fear; in the magnitude of the strength of Thine
arm will they be amazed and helpless as stone. For this land is Thy purchase, O Eloih; in
the passover of the blood of the lamb purchased Thou it; and Israel shall pass over it in
fear.

16. And Thou shalt bring them to the mountain of their inheritance, to Thy place, Our
God, Eloih. To dwell in Thy sanctuary, which Thou has established for Thy reign, forever
and forever.

Chapter 20
1. Moses called together the Heads and the rab’bahs, privily, and spake before them,
saying:

2. What have I taken upon me, O Jehovih? Behold Thy sons and daughters have
followed me out of Egupt; how shall I bind them unto Thee and not unto me, O my Father

in heaven?

3. Jehovih said unto me: Moses, Moses, what I say unto thee, say thou unto the rab’bahs
and unto the Heads; saying unto them: Not Moses, nor the Heads, nor the rab’bahs,
brought ye out of Egupt; ye were brought out by the Creator, Jehovih, Who is God of all,
Captain of all, Head of all, Rab’bah of all.

4. For herein have I drawn the line betwixt My people and My enemies, the idolaters of
men. Because of signs and miracles, the idolaters make a man-God of their magician and
worship him. But who is like unto thee, Moses, My son; in miracles who can match thee
in the magnitude of thy proceeding?

5. Who led forth My millions; and delivered them out of a great power without loss of a
man, woman or child?

6. But I declare unto thee, thou shalt do a greater miracle than any of these; for thou shalt
preserve thyself from becoming an idol before men. For thou shalt proclaim Me unto thy
people in all things, teaching them that thou art but a man. And thy Heads and thy
rab’bahs shall likewise teach them after the same manner; for I will put away all idolatry
from the face of the earth.

7. Neither will I have kings nor queens; I am sufficient unto all men.

8. As Abraham apportioned My people into families, with rab’bahs and with chief
rab’bahs, so shalt thou re-establish them.

9. And My commandments, which I gave unto Abraham, will I give unto thee; and My
crescent will I re-establish with My rab’bahs. And My crescent shall be the fullness of My
law unto the rab-bahs and chief rab’bahs.

10. Moses said: I cried unto Jehovih, saying: How shall it be with the square and at high
noon? And the angel of Jehovih, speaking in the Father’s name, said: To the north-east
God, to the south-west Lord, to the north-west Baal; to the south-east Ashtaroth. For
Osiris is dead already.

11. To this end, then, prepare ye a place this night, that the Great Spirit may bless us. The
rab-bahs and the Heads said: It is well.

12. And when it was night Moses and the rab’bahs and the Heads went away aside;
placing sentinels that they might be alone. And when they were thus prepared the light of
Jehovih came upon Moses, and the books of the ancients were opened before him. And
he administered emethachavah upon them; by the voice of Jehovih he re-established it;
with all the rites and ceremonies as they are to this day. And after that the Heads were no
longer called Heads, but Chief Rab’bahs; for Moses anointed them; by command of
Jehovih he anointed them.

13. And in not many days Moses wrote the Levitican laws; for the inner temple of
Jehovih was in spoken words only; but the outer temple was written. Wherefore it was
said: The Hebrews have two laws; one which no man else knoweth; and one for them
who are not eligible unto faith, being such as were called Leviticans, but not Leviticans in
fact, but hangers-on who had followed the Israelites out of Egupt and who for the most
part had no God, little judgment and no learning.

14. But of all that Moses did, and taught, and how he labored with his own hands, many
books might be written. And it is doubtful if the world ever produced so good and great a
man.

15. At the time Moses reached Shakelmarath, he was forty-four years old by the Hebrew
sun, but by the Eguptian he was eighty-eight years old.

16. Of Pharaoh and his hosts who were not destroyed in the sea, be it said, they returned
home to their places. And not long after that, Pharaoh banished God (Osiris) from the
earth, declaring himself the S
AVIOR OF THE WORLD, AND VICE GERENT OF THE HOLY GHOST.

17. The scribes and recorders assembled in Kaona and appointed Feh-ya (An Eguptian) to
write the departure of the Israelites out of Egupt. And Feh-ya wrote the account and
called it T
HE EXODUS OF THE HEBREWS, and it was recorded in the king’s House of Records.
And copies of it were sent to the large cities, and there recorded also, for such was the
law of Egupt. Feh-ya’s record was afterward accepted by Ezra, and is that which is known
to this day as the First Book of Exodus.

18. The Book of Genesis, as it stood in the Eguptian records, was written by Akaboth and
Dueram and Hazed, and was the substance from which Ezra copied it through his scribes,
even as it is to this day. The inspiration of Genesis was from the God, Osiris, the false,
and his emissaries, chief of whom were Yotabba and Egupt, who were angel servants to
Osiris. And so far as the records now stand the spirit of both books was the Eguptian
version of the whole subject.

19. Touching genealogies, in which men seemed to have lived to so great an age, this,
then, is the explanation thereof:

20. Thothma had said to his recorders: In searching for the truth of legends, give ye the
latitude thereof. For one legend will say, such a man lived seven hundred years ago,
another legend will say he lived ten hundred and fifty years ago. The latitude between
them is, therefore, three hundred and fifty years, which shall be the time of that man’s life.
And in this way latitude became confounded with fact, and with no intent to deceive.

21. And behold, it came to pass that the records were worthless; and to make matters
worse the records were so voluminous, being more than six thousand books, that the
scribes of Ezra could make neither head nor tail of them. Nevertheless, they were all
written, in the first place not by the Israelites, but by their enemies; wherein the testimony
of the miracles is none the weaker.

22. Thus endeth the history of Moses’deliverance of the Faithists out of Egupt.

23. Hear ye now of Chine of the land of Jaffeth:
