"A river issues from Eden to water the garden (Gen 2:10).

"Come and see. Once the moon prevails, illuminated by that river flowing forth, all those heavens below and their hosts are augmented with light. the stars empowered over by the world prevail, raising plants and trees. Earth grows in its entirety-even the waters and fish of the sea abound. Countless wardens of judgment roam the world, overjoyed and empowered. When joy prevails in the king's palace, even the gatekeepers, even crag dwellers all revel and roam the world, and children of the world must beware."
