Ten Sefirot of Nothingness
And 22 Foundation Letters:
Three Mothers [Alef Mem Shin]
Seven Doubles
And twelve Elementals

(6:1, 2, 3)
These are the Three Mothers AMSh.
And from them emanated Three Fathers,
and they are air, water, and fire.
and from the Fathers, descendents.
Three Fathers and their descendents.
And seven planets and their hosts,
And twelve diagonal boundaries.
A proof of this
true witnesses in the Universe, Year, Soul
and a rule of twelve
and seven and three:
He set them in the Teli, the Cycle, and the Heart.

Three Mothers: AMSh
Air, water, and fire.
Fire is above, water is below,
and air of Breath is the rule
that decides between them.
And a sign of this thing
is that fire supports water.[…]
The Teli in the Universe is like a king on his throne.
