    Note that .... above and bold lettering below have been added to help show its connection to versions elsewhere, which are somewhat different as well as more complete. See, for example, here:

    又云秦始皇二年八月十五日,武夷君置殽酒,會鄉人幔亭峰上。初,男女千餘人,齋戒如期而往,乃見虹梁跨溪,制度精巧,飛梯回級,傍設闌中,體輕心喜,不覺其倦。至山頂,有幔亭綵屋,玲瓏掩映,前後可數百間。夾幔亭立八綵幢八枚,銀龍(口銜)玉蘊幡,金鳳翠毛。其幔亭可坐千餘人,設東西地席,各有長座,如今之僧尼位。施綠油紅卷花,食卓,自北競南,無接續其幔亭。北壁當中設一虛牀,謂之太極玉皇座;北壁西廈設一虛牀,謂之太姥魏真座;北壁東設一虛牀,謂之武夷君座,悉施紅雲茵、紫霞褥,各一銅盂貯花水。初,鄉人至幔亭峰衙門外,聞擊鼓聲,少頃空中有告云,悉呼鄉人為曾孫,乃曰:汝等男孫先入東序而進,女孫後入西序而進。既而聞讚告曰:有太極玉皇大帝降臨山藪,曾孫可拜謝。又曰:太姥魏真人,曾孫可拜。又聞噓咳之聲,乃武夷君焉,高聲而言曰:汝等曾孫,若男若女,皆平安好,男孫東座,女孫西座。中亭有青綾帳幄,各設一牀,陳諸樂具,又聞讚告曰:命鼓師張安陵打引鼓,趙元竒拍副鼓,劉小禽坎鈴鼓,曾少重擺鼗鼓鼓,喬知滿振嘈鼓,高子春持短鼓,管師鮑公希吹橫笛板頭,何鳳兒撫等散,如此處東幄,奏停雲左仙之曲。命弦師董嬌娘彈箜篌,謝英妃撫長琴,呂荷香戛圓琵琶。管師其次姑噪,畢篥秀浹鳴洞簫,朱小娥運笙,金師羅妙容打銅鈸,如此處西幄,奏賓雲右仙之曲。見樂具空間橫豎,自響精妙。
    命及行酒,須臾酒至,無謝禮,酒味甘香而醇,酒醴百味珍竒,並皆殊越。又命行酒,乃令歌師彭令昭唱人間可哀之曲,辭曰:天上人間兮會合稀踈,日落西山兮夕鳥歸飛,百年一餉兮志與願違,天宮咫尺兮恨不相隨。歌罷,忽彩雲四合環珮,人馬之音竟空而至。又聞讚告云:玉靈太姥與大姥與曾孫別,再拜。又云:汝等宜速下此山間,久即有蛇螭虎豹之伍,不可遭逢。乃下山,俄而風雨暴至,各回顧山頂,無復一物。鄉人相喚曰:我等凡賤,得與仙尊共宴。後致祠其山,號曰同山云爾。侍郎劉夔序云:山在建寧北二百里外,崇安縣南三十里。按茅君內傳云:仙家有三十六洞天,武夷山乃第十六洞,昇真玄化之天。
