rom thence I went to another place to the west of the ends of the earth.
And I saw a burning
fire which ran without resting, and paused not from its course day or night but (ran) regularly.
And I asked saying: 'What is this which rests not?'
Then Raguel, one of the holy angels who was with me, answered me and said unto me
: 'This course of fire which thou hast seen
is the fire in the west which †persecutes† all the luminaries of heaven.'
