nd from here I went to the middle of the earth, and saw a place, blessed and fruitful, where there were branches which rooted in and sprouted out of a tree that was cut.
And here I saw a holy mountain, and beneath the mountain, towards the east, water which flowed towards the south.
And I saw towards the east another mountain of the same height, and between them a deep valley, but not broad: therein also water flowed along the mountain.
And towards the west of this was another mountain, lower than the former, not high, and below, between them a valley; and other deep and sterile valleys were at the end of the three.
And all the valleys were deep and not broad, of hard rock. And trees were planted upon them.
And I was astonished on account of the rocks, and was astonished on account of the valley, and was very much astonished.
