This is a fragment of manuscript from the Dead Sea Scrolls, and part of a collection of fragments referred to as both 'The Secret of the Way Things Are' and 'A Sapiental Work.' This is one of the sparser, less well preserved fragments.


Fragment 1
5Impose discipline on your lips, and on your tongue double doors
6Meditate on righteous words … to those who seek
7Always with your mouth praise God … your trembling …
8Give joy to His name …
9in the general assembly
10day and night
