  2. No god but God, the sovereign, the truth, the resplendent.  Husayn-`Ali
  3. Baha’u’llah
  4. My evidence is my self, my proof is my cause, and my testimony is my radiant beauty.
  5. The prison belongs to God.
  6. He is the glory of God to those in the kingdom of command and creation and the lamp of guidance to those in the heavens and the earth.
  7. I am the wronged one, the imprisoned, the stranger, the alone.
  8. To God belongs the dominion of the king of eternity.  The spirit exalts whom it wills by its glory and abases whom it wills by its decree and gives what it wills to whomever it wills.  Verily, it wills what it wills for whom it wills.  Verily, it does whatsoever it wills, and it is truly self-subsisting and supreme over all things.
  9. Verily, God testified of Himself through His self that I am living in the most glorious horizon.  Whereupon I announce to all things that verily I am God, no god is there but me, the almighty, the exalted, the mighty, the incomparable.
  10. From the horizon of the decree has dawned a sun on which the most glorious pen has inscribed:  The prison belongs to the dawning-place of the verses, who appeared through God’s authority and sovereignty over those in the heavens and the earth.
  11. My inner and outer beings call to each other, saying:  There is no king but me, the truth, the knower of things unseen.
  12. The ancient beauty has been established upon the most great throne.  Whereupon the tongue of grandeur and majesty that belongs to the lote-tree beyond which there is no passing addressed those in earth and heaven, saying:  By my grandeur and my beauty!  He who was hidden for all eternity in the treasuries of might and power has appeared!  Verily, he is the beloved who has come to revivify the worlds.
  13. Husayn and `Ali
  14. God bears witness that there is no god but Him, the powerful, the beloved.
  15. The lights of the countenance have shown forth from the dawning-place of eternity.  No god is there but Him.  Verily, He is the glorious, the most glorious.
  16. Husayn-`Ali, His hopeful servant, Husayn-`Ali
  17. Verily, I am the face of God, the most luminous.
  18. The tongue of the most glorious proclaims in the kingdom of creation: Sovereignty belongs to God, the incomparable, the single, the exalted, the most exalted.
