The Truth Who Thunders

Magical Papyri, Preis. 5.147-152

“…I am the truth,
The one who hates that there is injustice
In the world. I am the one who strikes lightning
And thunders. I am the one whose sweat
Falls as rain to the earth where it is useful..”

ὁ μισῶν ἀδικήματα γίνεσθαι
ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ. ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀστράπτων
καὶ βροντῶν. ἐγώ εἰμι, οὗ ἐστιν
ὁ ἱδρὼς ὄμβρος ἐπιπίπτων ἐ-
πὶ τὴν γῆν, ἵνα ὀχεύῃ…
