Jewish Mysticism
“For the one who merits this wisdom these awesome entities are inscribed upon his heart and they increase upon him all day; these entities are joyous in his heart and all the secrets of Torah are revealed to him.”

Translated by Elliot Wolfson in “Forms of Visionary Ascent and Ecstatic Experience,” in Gershom Scholem’s Major Trends in Jewish Mysticism 50 Years After 209-235. Edited by J. Dan and P. Schafer, Tubingen- J. C. B. Mohr, 1993, from MS Paris, Bibliothéque Nationale 824, fol. 108a, 14th ca. century. Concerning this text see Gershom Scholem, “Index of Commentaries on the Ten Sefirot,” Kiryat Sefer 10 (1933 1934)- 499, n. 7 and 508, n. 95 (Hebrew). The language of this text resembles Menahem Recanati’s paraphrase of Ezra of Gerona in his Commentary on the Torah (Jerusalem, 1961), fol. 37d.
