The Sun

6. First proceeds forth that great luminary, which is called the sun; the orb of which is as the orb of heaven, the whole of it being replete with splendid and flaming fire.7. Its chariot, where it ascends, the wind blows.8. The sun sets in heaven, and, returning by the north, to proceed towards the east, is conducted so as to enter by that gate, and illuminate the face of heaven.9. In the same manner it goes forth in the first month by a great gate.10. It goes forth through the fourth of those six gates, which are at the rising of the sun.
