H  <S>I sought for the <mine> appointment where unto unto the priesthood according  to the appointment of God unto  the fathers concerning the seed
Hmy fathers having turned from their  righteousness and from the holy  commandments which the Lord  their God had given unto them  unto the worshiping of the gods  of the heathens.
Hutterly refused to hearken to my  voice for their hearts were set to do  evil and were wholly turned to the  God of Elkkener and the god of  Zibnah and the god of mah machrah and the god of Pharo ah King of Egypt.
Therefore they turned their hearts  to the sacrafice of the heathens  in offering up their children unt[o]  these dumb Idols, and harkened  not unto my voice, but endeav oured to take away my life, by  the hand of the priest of Elkken[er]
Hthe priest of Elkkener was also the prie st of Pharaoh now at this time, it  was the custom of the priest of Pharao[h]  the King of Egypt to offer up, upon the  altar which was built in the land
