Help with “Six Are the Walking Ways” and the Sixth Sermon?

I've been listening to "Six Are the Walking Ways" from the ESO Morrowind expansion recently, and have been trying to understand the lyrics.

Six are the walking ways, enigma, enemy, teachers

Begat by precursor gods, come we now their creatures

Embody splendor in your name, and wisdom in your features

The 6th Sermon mentions the six walking ways, which from what I understand are more or less methods of achieving godhood through violence? I've only really heard them mentioned in regards to Tiber walking some of them before. "Enigma, enemy, teachers" is pulled directly from the 6th Sermon, but I can't say I understand what it means. I'm guessing the "precursor gods" are the Anticipations, who are referenced in the sermon. "Embody splendor in your name and wisdom in your features" seems to be a direct reference to the 6th Sermon too, does this have something to do with nymics?

By the sword I mean the night

By the word I mean the dead

By the sword I mean a sigh

By the word I mean the end

Also from the sermon (partially), I have no clue what these mean in the song or the sermon.

Six are the guardians, three fore and three incarnate

Here to test your hero's ways, and show that you can learn it

The truest works we shall behold are those made by the silent

"Six are the guardians of Veloth, three before and they are born again" – the three before are the anticipations, and the three born again/three incarnate are the tribunal, using Veloth to refer to the Dunmer as a whole, right? The last line doesn't seem to reference the sermon.

By the sword I mean the night

By the word I mean the dead

By the sword I mean a sigh

By the word I mean the end

By the sword I mean the night

By the word I mean the dead

By the sword I mean a sigh

By the word I mean the end

See earlier; no clue what these mean.

So, is anyone with a better understanding of the walking ways and Vivec's sermons able to fill in some of the gaps?
