nd now, my son Methuselah, I have showed you all things, and the whole law of the stars is completed.
And he showed me all their laws for every day and for every time and for every government and for every year, and her departure, according to her order in each month and in every week;
and the decrease of the moon, which takes place in the sixth portal, for in that sixth portal her light is completed, and from then there is the beginning of the month;
also the decrease which takes place in the first portal, in its time, till one hundred and seventy-seven days are completed; in the law of weeks, twenty-five weeks and two days;
and how she tarries behind the sun and according to the law of the stars five days in one time exactly; and when this place which thou dost see is completed.
This is the picture and the portrait of each luminary which the great angel Uriel, who is their leader, showed to me.
