2.4.6   PROMISES

As with most of the other works, this too is authored by Metatron. Here he writes about the obligations and responsibilities of the children of fire to both their own brethren and to the children of clay. It outlines correct behavior and thought as desired by the Almighty. Those who follow the paths of grace and righteousness hold it up as a testament to their actions, while those who have fallen into disgrace ignore it completely.

    For the Lord charged us to look over the children of clay, so that at death, their souls would be judged righteous and pure, so that the hands of the accursed one would not taint what God alone created. This task we should not take lightly. We should pursue this goal with utmost diligence.
    VI: II
