Now you quote from the Pistis Sophia, which is NOT a Mandaean text?
And in the same breath you mention another book the connection of
which to either one is totally unclear? This doesn't make any sense.

to give it. Even more so since the accuracy of the quote has been
brought into question, because if the quote is inaccurate, no one will
ever find it. And just to remind - you said it was from _Mandaean_
tradition, so you will need to cite a _Mandaean_ text. If it's online,
and you can find the quote in question, just provide a link to it and
we'll all be happy. Either that or admit that you misquoted.
