This [Divine] Reason is the simple and verily existent Truth: that pure and infallible Omniscience round which divinely inspired Faith revolves. It is the permanent Ground of the faithful, which builds them in the Truth and builds the Truth in them by an unwavering firmness, through which they possess a simple knowledge of the Truth of those things which they believe.
Divine Names, Rolt translation

These are revealed counsels of the highest hidden mystery called "Artisan" (oman),* which means the source of faith (emunah), for faith emerges by His power.

* See Isaiah 25: 1. In other circles, this term designated the first and most concealed sefirah, keter or Crown.
From The Book of Speculation - (SEFER HA - 'IYYUN) in Early Kabbalah, page 47.
