21. Having then caught up (moist) sun-motes with the hollow of his hands, he mixes them (with the other kinds of water), with, “Self-ruling waters ye are, bestowers of kingship: bestow ye kingship on N.N.!” For those sun-motes are indeed self-ruling waters, since they are flowing, as it were, and, not yielding to one another’s superiority, keep being now higher now lower: he thus thereby bestows self-ruling power upon him. This is one kind of water: it is that he now brings.
