Chapter 74

1. When I heard the voice of my Teacher, a Power clothed all my limbs; I said to him: “I have received your words, O my Father; stretch out to me now your Right Hand, so that when the seven demons before me see me they may flee far from me!”

2. Then after that the seven frightful demons departed from me, their foul hands being also empty of my blood, their heart being further laden with grief and sorrow because they had been unable to coax me into the nets of pleasure – for I have never been a slave of the wickedness that works outrage.

3. See, I have subdued the Darkness; see, I have put out the fire of the eruptions, their bitter walls I have destroyed, and battered down their gates.
