26.1 And from there, I went to the middle of the Earth, and saw a blessed, well watered place, which had branches which remained alive, and sprouted, from a tree which had been cut down.
26.2 And there, I saw a Holy mountain, and under the mountain, to the east of it, there was water, and it flowed towards the south.
26.3 And I saw towards the east, another mountain, which was of the same height, and between them, there was a deep and narrow valley; and in it, a stream ran by the mountain.
26.4 And to the west of this one, was another mountain, which was lower than it was, and not high; and under it, there was a valley between them. And there were other deep and dry valleys at the end of the three mountains.
26.5 And all the valleys were deep, and narrow, of hard rock, and trees were planted on them.
26.6 And I was amazed at the rock, and I was amazed at the valley; I was very much amazed.
27.1 Then I said: "What is the purpose
of this blessed land, which is completely full of trees, and of this accursed
valley in the middle of them?"
27.2 Then Raphael, one of the Holy Angels who was with me, answered me, and said to me: "This accursed valley is for those who are cursed for ever. Here will be gathered together all who speak with their mouths against the Lord, words that are not fitting, and say hard things about His Glory. Here, they will gather them together, and here will be their place of judgement.
27.3 And in the last days, there will be the spectacle of the Righteous Judgement upon them, in front of the righteous, for ever, for evermore; here, the merciful will bless the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King.
27.4 And in the days of the judgement on them, they will bless Him, on account of His mercy, according as He has assigned to them their lot."
27.5 Then I myself blessed the Lord of Glory, I addressed Him, and I remembered His Majesty, as was fitting.
28.1 And from there, I went towards the east,
to the middle of the mountain of the wilderness, and I saw only desert.
28.2 But it was full of trees, from this seed, and water gushed out over it from above.
28.3 The torrent, which flowed towards the northwest, seemed copious, and from all sides there went up mist and dew.
29.1 And I went to another place, away from
the wilderness; I came near to the east of this mountain.
29.2 And there, I saw Trees of Judgement, especially vessels of the fragrance of incense and myrrh, and the trees were not alike.
30.1 And above it, above these, above the mountains
of the east, and not far away, I saw another place; valleys of water, like that
which does not fail.
30.2 And, I saw a beautiful tree, and its fragrance was like that of the mastic.
30.3 And by the banks of these valleys I saw fragrant cinnamon. And beyond those valleys I came towards the east.
31.1 And I saw another mountain on which there
were trees, and there flowed out water, and there flowed out from them, as it
were, a nectar whose name is styrax and galbanum.
31.2 And beyond this mountain, I saw another mountain, and on it there were aloe trees, and those trees were full of a fruit, which is like an almond, and is hard.
31.3 And, when they take this fruit, it is better than any fragrance.
32.1 And after these fragrances, to the north,
as I looked over the mountains, I saw seven mountains full of fine nard, and
fragrant trees of cinnamon and pepper.
32.2 And from there, I went over the summits of those mountains, far away to the east, and I went over the Red Sea, and I was far from it, and I went over the Angel Zotiel.
32.3 And I came to the Garden of Righteousness, and I saw beyond those trees many large trees growing there, sweet smelling, large, very beautiful and glorious, the Trees of Wisdom, from which they eat and know great wisdom.
32.4 And it is like the carob tree, and its fruit is like bunches of grapes on a vine, very beautiful, and the smell of this tree spreads and penetrates afar.
32.5 And I said: "This tree is beautiful! How beautiful and pleasing is its appearance!"
32.6 And the Holy Angel Raphael, who was with me, answered me and said to me: "This is the Tree of Wisdom, from which your old father, and aged mother, who were before you, ate and learnt wisdom; and their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they were driven from the garden."
33.1 And, from there, I went to the ends of
the Earth, and I saw there large animals, each different from the other, and
also birds, which differed in form, beauty, and call, each different from the
33.2 And to the east of these animals, I saw the ends of the Earth, on which Heaven rests, and the open Gates of Heaven.
33.3 And I saw how the stars of Heaven come out, and counted the Gates out of which they come, and wrote down all their outlets, for each one, individually, according to their number. And their names, according to their constellations, their positions, their times, and their months, as the Angel Uriel, who was with me, showed me.
33.4 And he showed me everything, and wrote it down, and also their names he wrote down for me, and their laws and their functions.
34.1 And, from there, I went towards the north,
to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw a great and glorious wonder, at the
ends of the whole Earth.
34.2 And there I saw three Gates of Heaven, open in Heaven, through each of them north winds go out; when they blow there is cold, hail, hoarfrost, snow, dew, and rain.
34.3 And from one Gate, it blows for good; but when they blow through the other two Gates, it is with force, and it brings torment over the Earth, and they blow with force.
35.1 And, from there, I went towards the west, to the ends of the Earth, and I saw there, as I saw in the east, three open Gates; as many Gates and as many outlets.
36.1 And, from there, I went towards the south,
to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw three Gates of Heaven open; and the
south wind, and the dew, and the rain, and wind, come out from there.
36.2 And, from there, I went towards the east of the ends of Heaven, and there I saw the three eastern Gates of Heaven open, and above them, there were smaller Gates.
36.3 Through each of these smaller Gates, the stars of Heaven pass, and go towards the west, on the path that has been shown to them.
36.4 And when I saw, I blessed, and I will always bless the Lord of Glory, who has made great and glorious wonders, so that He might show the greatness of His Work to His Angels, and to the souls of men, so that they might praise His Work. And so that all His creatures might see the work of His Power, and praise the great work of His Hands, and bless Him for ever!
