Glory to You, O Lord, and Blessed is Your Majesty.
There is no God besides You.
I seek refuge with God, from the condemned devil.
Blessed is He “who created the Heavens and the earth in six aeons,”
and all that is on them,
“brought them into being,” and sustains them.
“Enthroned in His Almightiness” is our "Creator" and "Sustainer,"
who “covers the day with the night in swift pursuit,
with the sun and the moon and the stars subservient to His command."
And, He alone is “The Creator of all things,”
who governs “all that exists," and sustains them.
And, "His is all creation and command."
And, God bestowed all of this upon mankind
as "Signs from on High,
as a means of insight for thee,”
so that you might worship Him, and give Him thanks and praise.
“Worship, then, Him alone, and remain steadfast in His worship.”
For, “ Dost thou know any whose name is worthy
to be mentioned side by side with His?”
No! For, “There is none like unto Him,”
no deity but Him.
And, “Utterly remote” is He, “in His Glory!”
Even “the angels extol their Sustainer’s limitless Glory and praise,
and ask for forgiveness for all who are on earth.”
“And thus, all Praise is due to God,
The Sustainer of the Heavens,
The Sustainer of the earth...
The Sustainer of all the worlds.”
