The Book of the Courses of the Heavenly Luminaries
nd I saw another course and law for her, making her monthly course according to that law.
And Uriel, the holy angel, who is the leader of them all, showed me all things, and I wrote down all their positions as he showed them to me, and I wrote down their months as they were and the appearance of their lights till fifteen days are completed.
And in seven single parts she completes all her light in the east, and in seven single parts she completes all her darkness in the west.
And in certain months she changes her settings, and in certain months she goes her peculiar course.
And in two the moon sets with the sun, in those two portals which are in the middle, in the third and in the fourth portal.
She comes forth seven days, and turns and returns again by that portal through which the sun comes; and in that she completes all her light and recedes from the sun; and enters in eight days into the sixth portal, through which the sun comes forth.
And when the sun comes out of the fourth portal she comes out seven days, so that she comes out of the fifth, and returns again in seven days into the fourth portal and completes all her light, and recedes and enters the first portal in eight days.
And she returns again in seven days to the fourth portal, through which the sun comes forth.
Thus I saw their places, the sun rising and setting according to the order of their months.
And in those days, if five years are taken together, the sun has thirty superabundant days; and all the days which belong to him for one of these five years, when they are full, are three hundred and sixty-four days.
And the superabundance of the sun and of the stars is six days; of five years, each at six, are thirty days, and the moon recedes from the sun and the stars thirty days.
And the moon brings in all the years exact, so that their place neither precedes nor recedes one day, but she changes the years with exact justice in three hundred and sixty-four days.
Three years have one thousand and ninety-two days; and five years, eighteen hundred and twenty days; so that there will be in eight years two thousand nine hundred and twelve days.
To the moon alone belongs for three years one thousand and sixty-two days, and for five years she recedes fifty days, viz. to the sum of these are added sixty-two days.
And thus in five years there will be seventeen hundred and seventy days, so that the days of the moon for eight years will be two thousand eight hundred and thirty-two days.
For her receding in eight years is eighty days, and all the days she remains behind in eight years are eighty days.
And the year is justly finished, in accordance with their stations and the stations of the sun, rising through their portals, through which they rise and set thirty days.
