And after he had finished his speech, he said to me: 10 "Awaken your mind, Paul, and see: this mountain upon which you walk, it is the mountain of Jericho!

Es [took Saint] spoke to him and said, "Look and see your likeness on earth. "

The soul answered and said, "What have I sinned 15 in the world? "
The Customs officer who sits in the fourth heaven replied and said, "You should not do all these inequities are the world 20 dead. "
The soul answered and said, "Produce witnesses, they [inform you] body against what I have done wickedly. "

[And I] looked up and I [am Es] took saying: 25 "Paul, come, [I am]. "
And me, as I m [archais], the door opened, [and] I went to the fifth [Sky]. And I saw my fellow [APO] very 30 m [Archant with me], 22 the Spirit walking with us.
And I saw a Great Angel in the fifth heaven holding an iron rod in his hand 5, three other angels were with him; and I looked at their faces.
And they quarreled among themselves, whips being in their hands, goading these 10 souls to the punishment. And I was walking with the Spirit and the door opened for me.
Then we ascended to the sixth heaven. And I saw my fellow apostles 15 walking with me; and the Holy Spirit took me in front of them. And I looked up, I saw a great light illuminating downwards in the sixth heaven.

And the Old replied, "Where are you? "
I also replied, saying, "I'm going down to the underworld to do 15 captivity captive, which was made captive in the Babylonian captivity. "
The Old answered me and said, "How you'll be 20 escape? Look and see the principalities and the authorities! "
The Spirit answered and said, "Give him the sign that you hold and [he] 25 open to you. "And then I [it] gave the sign. He turned his [face] down to its creat [ion] and those who are its authorities.
