Greek title:--
& Testament of Solomon, son of %avid, who was
king in *erusalem, and mastered and controlled all
spirits of the air, on the earth, and under the earth
3y means of them also he wrought all the
transcendent works of the Temple Telling also of the
authorities they wield against men, and by what
angels these demons are brought to naught
Of the sage Solomon.
3lessed art thou, O 1ord 4od, who didst give
Solomon such authority 4lory to thee and might
unto the ages $men
5 $nd behold, when the Temple of the city of
*erusalem was being built, and the artificers were
working thereat, Ornias the demon came among
them toward sunset6 and he took away half of the
pay of the chief7deviser8s 092
little boy, as well as half
his food .&:/ +e also continued to suck the thumb of
his right hand every day $nd the child grew thin,
although he was very much loved by the king
& .%; master workman<s /
, So King Solomon called the boy one day, and
questioned him, saying; =%o ! not love thee more
than all the artisans who are working in the Temple
of 4od9 %o ! not give thee double wages and a
double supply of food9 +ow is it that day by day
and hour by hour thou growest thinner9=
> 3ut the child said to the king; =! pray thee, O king
1isten to what has befallen all that thy child hath
$fter we are all released from our work on the
Temple of 4od, after sunset, when ! lie down to rest,
one of the evil demons comes and takes away from
me one half of my pay and one half of my food Then
he also takes hold of my right hand and sucks my
thumb $nd lo, my soul is oppressed, and so my
body waxes thinner every day=
- ?ow when ! Solomon heard this, ! entered the
Temple of 4od, and prayed with all my soul, night
and day, that the demon might be delivered into my
hands, and that ! might gain authority over him
$nd it came about through my prayer that grace was
given to me from the 1ord Sabaoth by @ichael his
archangel .+e brought me/ a little ring, having a
seal consisting of an engraved stone, and said to me;
=Take, O Solomon, king, son of %avid, the gift which
the 1ord 4od has sent thee, the highest Sabaoth
Aith it thou shalt lock up all demons of the earth,
male and female6 and with their help thou shalt
build up *erusalem .3ut/ thou .must/ wear this seal
of 4od $nd this engraving of the seal of the ring
sent thee is a Pentalpha=

5 .% omits the last sentence/
: $nd ! Solomon was overBoyed, and praised and
glorified the 4od of heaven and earth $nd on the
morrow ! called the boy, and gave him the ring, and
said to him; =take this, and at the hour in which the
demon shall come unto thee, throw this ring at the
chest of the demon, and say to him; 8!n the name of
4od, King Solomon calls thee hither
8 $nd then do
thou come running to me, without having any
misgivings or fear in respect of aught thou mayest
hear on the part of the demon=

D So the child took the ring, and went off6 and
behold, at the .&D/ customary hour Ornias, the fierce
demon, came like a burning fire to take the pay from
the child 3ut the child according to the instructions
received from the king, threw the ring at the chest of
the demon, and said; =King Solomon calls thee
hither= $nd then he went off at a run to the king
3ut the demon cried out aloud, saying; =#hild, why
hast thou done this to me9 Take the ring off me, and
! will render to thee the gold of the earth Only take
this off me, and forbear to lead me away to

back to Solomon/
' 3ut the child said to the demon; =$s the 1ord 4od
of !srael liveth, ! will not brook thee So come hither=
$nd the child came at a run, reBoicing, to the king,
and said; =! have brought the demon, O king, as thou
didst command me, O my master $nd behold, he
stands before the gates of the court of thy palace,
crying out, and supplicating with a loud voice6
offering me the silver and gold of the earth if ! will
only bring him unto thee

his throne, and went outside into the vestibule of the
court of his palace6 and there he saw the demon,
shuddering and trembling $nd he said to him;
=Aho art thou9= $nd the demon answered; =! am

set him to work at stone7cutting, so that he might cut
the stones in the Temple, which, lying along the
shore, had been brought by the Sea of $rabia 3ut he,
fearful of the iron, continued and said to me; =! pray
thee, King Solomon, let me go free6 and ! will bring

Ornias threw the ring at the chest of !eel"eboul,
saying; =Solomon the king calls thee= 3ut !eel"eboul
cried aloud with a mighty voice, and shot out a great
burning flame of fire6 and he arose, and followed
Ornias, and came to Solomon

&F( $nd among them also the queen of the South,

which ! instructed her, according to the wisdom
imparted to me $nd all the sons of !srael glorified

said; =King Solomon, pity me, because ! am old= So !
bade him stand up, and said; =Tell me, old man, all
you will= $nd he answered; =! beseech you king, !
have an only7born son, and he insults and beats me
openly, and plucks out the hair of my head, and
threatens me with a painful death Therefore !

compunction as ! looked at his old age6 and ! bade
the child be brought to me $nd when he was
brought ! questioned him whether it were true $nd
the youth said; =! was not so filled with madness as
to strike my father with my hand 3e kind to me, O
king "or ! have not dared to commit such impiety,
poor wretch that ! am= 3ut ! Solomon on hearing
this from the youth, exhorted the old man to reflect
on the matter, and accept his son8s apology
+owever, he would not, but said he would rather let
him die $nd as the old man would not yield, ! was
about to pronounce sentence on the youth, when !
saw Ornias the demon laughing ! was very angry at
the demon8s laughing in my presence6 and ! ordered
my men to remove the other parties, and bring
forward Ornias before my tribunal $nd when he
was brought before me, ! said to him; =$ccursed one,
why didst thou look at me and laugh9= $nd the
demon answered; =Prithee, king, it was not because
of thee ! laughed, but because of this ill7starred old
man and the wretched youth, his son "or after three
days his son will die untimely6 and lo, the old man
desires to foully make away with him=
&&5 3ut ! Solomon, having heard this, said to the
demon; =!s that true that thou speakest9= $nd he
answered; =!t is true6 O king= $nd !, on hearing that,
bade them remove the demon, and that they should
again bring before me the old man with his son !
bade them
make friends with one another again,
and ! supplied them with food $nd then ! told the
old man after three days to bring his son again to me
here6 =and,= said !, =! will attend to him= $nd they
saluted me, and went their way
&&, $nd when they were gone ! ordered Ornias to
be brought forward, and said to him; =Tell me how
you know this6= and he answered; =Ae demons

among the stars $nd we hear the sentences which
go forth upon the souls of men, and forthwith we
come, and whether by force of influence, or by fire,
or by sword, or by some accident, we veil our act of
destruction6 and if a man does not die by some
untimely disaster or by violence, then we demons
transform ourselves in such a way as to appear to
men and be worshipped in our human nature=
&&> ! therefore, having heard this, glorified the 1ord
4od, and again ! questioned the demon, saying; =Tell
me how ye can ascend into heaven, being demons,
and amidst the stars and holy angels intermingle=
$nd he answered; =*ust as things are fulfilled in
heaven, so also on earth 0are fulfilled2 the types
all of them "or there are principalities, authorities,
, and we demons fly about in the air6
and we hear the voices of the heavenly beings, and

demon to be guarded for five days $nd after the
five days ! recalled the old man, and was about to
question him 3ut he came to me in grief and with
black face $nd ! said to him; =Tell me, old man,
where is thy son9 $nd what means this garb9= $nd
he answered; =1o, ! am become childless, and sit by
my son8s grave in despair "or it is already two days
that he is dead= 3ut ! Solomon, on hearing that, and
knowing that the demon Ornias had told me the
truth, glorified the 4od of !srael
&&: $nd the queen of the South saw all this, and
marvelled, .>&/ glorifying the 4od of !srael6 and she
beheld the Temple of the 1ord being builded $nd
she gave a siklos
of gold and one hundred myriads
of silver and choice bronGe, and she went into the
Temple $nd 0she beheld2 the altar of incense and
the braGen supports of this altar, and the gems of the
lamps flashing forth of different colours, and of the
lamp7stand of stone, and of emerald, and hyacinth,
and sapphire6 and she beheld the vessels of gold, and
silver, and bronGe, and wood, and the folds of skins
dyed red with madder $nd she saw the bases of the

apart from the demons whom ! condemned
to labour $nd there was peace in the circle of my

5 There seems to be here a lacuna
in the @S
&&D $nd it came to pass, which ! was in my
kingdom, the King of the $rabians, $dares, sent me
a letter, and the writing of the letter was written as
follows; 77
=To King Solomon, all hailC 1o, we have
heard, and it hath been heard unto all
the ends of the earth, concerning the
wisdom vouchsafed in thee, and that
thou art a man merciful from the 1ord
$nd understanding hath been granted
thee over all the spirits of the air, and
on earth, and under the earth ?ow,
forasmuch as there is present in the
land of $rabia a spirit of the following
kind; at early dawn there begins to
blow a certain wind until the third
hour $nd its blast is harsh and
terrible, and it slays man and beast
$nd no spirit can live upon earth
against this demon ! pray thee then,
forasmuch as the spirit is a wind,
contrive something according to the
wisdom given in thee by the 1ord thy
4od, and deign to send a man able to
capture it $nd behold, King Solomon,
! and my people and all my land will
serve thee unto death $nd all $rabia
shall be at peace with thee, if thou wilt
perform this act of righteousness for
us Aherefore we pray thee, contemn
not our humble prayer, and suffer not
to be utterly brought to naught the
eparchy subordinated to thy authority
3ecause we are suppliants, both ! and
my people and all my land "arewell to
my 1ord $ll healthC=
&&' $nd ! Solomon read this epistle6 and ! folded it
up and gave it to my people, and said to them; =$fter
seven days shalt thou remind me of this epistle $nd
*erusalem was built, and the Temple was being
completed $nd there was a stone
, the end stone .>5/
of the corner lying there, great, chosen out, one
which ! desired lay in the head of the corner of the
completion of the Temple $nd all the workmen, and
all the demons helping them came to the same place
to bring up the stone and lay it on the pinnacle of the
holy Temple, and were not strong enough to stir it,
and lay it upon the corner allotted to it "or that
stone was exceedingly great and useful for the
corner of the Temple=
& #p ! Pet ii :, D, who combines
in the same way Ps cxviii 55 and
!sa xxviii &: #p @att xxi >5,
@ark xii, &F, 1uke xx, &D
&&( $nd after seven days, being reminded of the
epistle of $dares, King of $rabia, ! called my servant
and said to him; =Order thy camel and take for
thyself a leather flask, and take also this seal $nd go
away into $rabia to the place in which the evil spirit
blows6 and there take the flask, and the signet7ring in
front of the mouth of the flask, and 0hold them2
towards the blast of the spirit $nd when the flask is
blown out, thou wilt understand that the demon is
0in it2 Then hastily tie up the mouth of to flask, and
seal it securely with the seal7ring, and lay it carefully
on the camel and bring it me hither $nd if on the
way it offer thee gold or silver or treasure in return
for letting it go, see that thou be not persuaded 3ut
arrange without using oath to release it $nd then if
it point out to the places where are gold or silver,
mark the places and seal them with this seal $nd
bring the demon to me $nd now depart, and fare
thee well=
&5F Then the youth did as was bidden him $nd he
ordered his camel, and laid on it a flask, and set off
into $rabia $nd the men of that region would not
believe that he would be able to catch the evil spirit
$nd when it was dawn, the servant stood before the
spirit8s blast, and laid the flask on the ground, and
the finger7ring on the mouth of the flask $nd the
demon blew through the middle of the finger7ring
into the mouth of the flask, and going in blew out
the flask 3ut the man promptly stood up to it and
drew tight with his hand the mouth of the flask, in
the name of the 1ord 4od of SabaLth $nd the
demon remained within the flask $nd after that the
youth remained in that land three days to make trial
$nd the spirit no longer blew against that city $nd
all the $rabs knew that he had safely shut in the
&5& Then the youth fastened the flask on the camel,
and the $rabs sent him forth on his way with much
honour and precious gifts, praising and magnifying
the 4od of !srael 3ut the youth brought in the bag
and laid it in the middle of the Temple $nd on the
next day, ! King Solomon, went into the Temple of
4od and sat in deep distress about the stone of the
end of the corner $nd when .>,/ ! entered the
Temple, the flask stood up and walked around some
seven steps and then fell on its mouth and did
homage to me $nd ! marvelled that even along with
the bottle the demon still had power and could walk
about6 and ! commanded it to stand up $nd the
flask stood up, and stood on its feet all blown out
$nd ! questioned him, saying; =Tell me, who art
thou9= $nd the spirit within said; =! am the demon
called )phippas, that is in $rabia= $nd ! said to
him; =!s this thy name9= $nd he answered; =Res6
wheresoever ! will, ! alight and set fire and do to

*ews on a cross Ahom the angels and archangels

my great strength, which has been given me by my
father the devil= $nd ! said to him; =Ahat canst thou
do988 $nd he answered; 88! am able to remove
mountains, to overthrow the oaths of kings ! wither
trees and make their leaves to fall off= $nd ! said to
him; =#anst thou raise this stone, and lay it for the
beginning of this corner which exists in the fair plan
of the Temple

&5, Saying this, ! laid stress on him, and the flask
became as if depleted of air $nd ! placed it under
the stone, and 0the spirit2 girded himself up, and
lifted it up top of the flask $nd the flask went up the
steps, carrying the stone, and laid it down at the end
of the entrance of the Temple $nd ! Solomon,
beholding the stone raised aloft and placed on a
foundation, said; =Truly the Scripture is fulfilled,
which says; 8The stone which the builders reBected on
trial, that same is become the head of the corner8 "or
this it is not mine to grant, but 4od8s, that the demon
should be strong enough to lift up so great a stone
and deposit it in the place ! wished=
&5> $nd )phippas led the demon of the Eed Sea
with the column $nd they both took the column
and raised it aloft from the earth $nd ! outwitted
these two spirits, so that they could not shake the
entire earth in a moment of time $nd then ! sealed
round with my .>>/ ring on this side and that, and
said; =Aatch= $nd the spirits have remained
upholding it until this day, for proof of the wisdom
vouchsafed to me $nd there the pillar was hanging
of enormous siGe, in mid air, supported by the
winds $nd thus the spirits appeared underneath,
like air, supporting it $nd if one looks fixedly, the
pillar is a little oblique, being supported by the
spirits6 and it is so to day
&5- $nd ! Solomon questioned the other spirit
which came up with the pillar from the depth of the
Eed Sea $nd ! said to him; =Aho art thou, and what
calls thee9 $nd what is thy business9 "or ! hear
many things about thee88 $nd the demon answered;
=!, O King Solomon, am called $beGithibod ! am a
descendant of the archangel Once as ! sat in the first
heaven, of which the name is $meleouth 77 ! then am
a fierce spirit and winged, and with a single wing,
plotting against every spirit under heaven ! was
present when @oses went in before Pharaoh, king of

5 5 Tim iii '
&5: ! said therefore to him; =+ow wast thou found
in the Eed Sea9= $nd he answered; =!n the exodus of
the sons of !srael ! hardened the heart of Pharaoh
$nd ! excited his heart and that of his ministers $nd
! caused them to pursue after the children of !srael
$nd Pharaoh followed with 0me2 and all the
)gyptians Then ! was present there, and we
followed together $nd we all came up upon the Eed
Sea $nd it came to pass when the children of !srael
had crossed over, the water returned and hid all the
host of the )gyptians and all their might $nd !
remained in the sea, being kept under this pillar 3ut
when )phippas came, being sent by thee, shut up in
the vessel of a flask, he fetched me up to thee=
&5D !, therefore, Solomon, having heard this,
glorified 4od and adBured the demons not to disobey
me, but to remain supporting the pillar $nd they
both sware, saying; =The 1ord thy 4od liveth, we
will not let go this pillar until the world8s end 3ut on
whatever day this stone fall, then shall be the end of
the world
& This legend of the heavy
cornerstone and of the spirits
supporting a column in the
Temple reappears in the 4eorgian
$cts of ?ouna in the fourth
century There it is a huge
wooden column that is lifted by
spirit7agency, when the king and
workmen had failed to move it
into place The spirits support it in
the air before letting it sink into its

Solomon can scarcely be Budged accurately in the light of its )nglish version, for
the translator, preternaturally regarding it as a highly honourable memorial of
lawful magic, has excised as much as possible the 4oVtic portions, on the ground
that they are interpolations, which is of course arbitrary=
@r Aaite8s harsh criticism is hardly Bustified !n fact, @athers excised very little
$ctually, three of the four significant excisions are operations dealing with love

more to be desired than @athers82 )specially wanting are a proper critical
apparatus, an analysis of the relation between manuscripts, and better utiliGation

The pentacles are perhaps the biggest puGGle on the textual tradition of -lavicula
Salomonis Infortunately @athers does nothing to elucidate or even acknowledge

4ollancG, but by no means identical Some of the pentacles found in the
manuscripts used by @athers are also reminiscent of the 4reek and +ebrew
ones, but many are clearly late inventions based on $grippa, #rchido$es, and
other sources @athers seems to have narrowed those in his edition to exclude
most of these clearly later ones To give some sense of the state of these pentacles

"ragment from )liphaG 1evi
Wabalistic invocation of Solomon from )liphaG 1evi
!n presenting this celebrated magical work to the student of occult
science some few prefatory remarks are necessary
The Key of Solomon, save for a curtailed and incomplete copy
published in "rance in the seventeenth century, has never yet been
printed, but has for centuries remained in @anuscript form
inaccessible to all but the few fortunate scholars to whom the inmost
recesses of the great libraries were open ! therefore consider that ! am
highly honored in being the individual to whose lot it has fallen to
usher it into the light of day
The fountain7head and storehouse of Wabalistical @agic, and the
origin of much of the #eremonial @agic of mediXval times, the 8Key8
has been ever valued by occult writers as a work of the highest
authority6 and notably in our own day )liphaG 1Mvi has taken it for
the model on which his celebrated 85ogme et Rituel de la ,aute =agie8
was based !t must be evident to the initiated reader of 1Mvi, that the
Key of Solomon was his text book of study, and at the end of this
volume ! give a fragment of an ancient +ebrew manuscript of the 8Key
of Solomon,8 translated and published in the 8Philosophie Occulte,8 as
well as an !nvocation called the 8Wabalistical !nvocation of Solomon,8
which bears close analogy to one in the "irst 3ook, being constructed
in the same manner on the scheme of the Sephiroth
The history of the +ebrew original of the 8Key of Solomon,8 is given in
the !ntroductions, but there is every reason to suppose that this has
been entirely lost, and #hristian, the pupil of 1Mvi, says as much in his
8+istoire de la @agie8
! see no reason to doubt the tradition which assigns the authorship of
the 8Key8 to King Solomon, for among others *osephus, the *ewish
historian, especially mentions the magical works attributed to that
monarch6 this is confirmed by many )astern traditions, and his
magical skill is frequently mentioned in the $rabian ?ights
There are, however, two works on 3lack @agic, the 8(rimorium
?erum,8 and the 8-lavicola di Salomone ridolta,8 which have been
attributed to Solomon, and which have been in some cases especially
mixed up with the present work6 but which have nothing really to do
therewith6 they are full of evil magic, and ! cannot caution the
practical student too strongly against them
There is also another work called 81emegeton or the 1esser Key of
Solomon the King,8 which is full of seals of various Spirits, and is not
the same as the present book, though extremely valuable in its own
!n editing this volume ! have omitted one or two experiments
partaking largely of 3lack @agic, and which had evidently been
derived from the two 4oetic works mentioned above6 ! must further
caution the practical worker against the use of blood6 the prayer, the
pentacle, and the perfumes, rightly used, are sufficient6 and the former
verges dangerously on the evil path 1et him who, in spite of the
warnings of this volume, determines to work evil, be assured that evil
will recoil on himself and that he will be struck by the reflex current
This work is edited from several ancient @SS in the 3ritish @useum
which all differ from each other in various points, some giving what is
omitted by the others, but all unfortunately agreeing in one thing,
which is the execrable mangling of the +ebrew words through the
ignorance of the transcribers 3ut it is in the Pentacles that the +ebrew
is worse, the letters being so vilely scribbled as to he actually
undecipherable in some instances, and it has been part of my work for
several years to correct and reinstate the proper +ebrew and @agical
characters in the Pentacles The student may therefore safely rely on
their being now as nearly correct in their present reproduction as it is
possible for them to be ! have therefore, wherever ! could, corrected
the +ebrew of the @agical ?ames in the #onBurations and Pentacles6
and in the few instances where it was not possible to do so, ! have put
them in the most usual form6 carefully collating throughout one @S
with another The #hapters are a little differently classed in the
various @SS, in some instances the matter contained in them being
transposed, Kc ! have added notes wherever necessary

5 ! fancy this must be a
corruption of 8$ben )Gra8
)very one knoweth in the present day that from time
immemorial Solomon possessed knowledge inspired by
the wise teachings of an angel, to which he appeared so
submissive and obedient, that in addition to the gift of
wisdom, which he demanded, he obtained with
profusion all the other virtues6 which happened in order
that knowledge worthy of eternal preservation might
not be buried with his body 3eing, so to speak, near his
end, he left to his son Eoboam a Testament which
should contain all 0the Aisdom2 he had possessed prior
to his death The Eabbins, who were careful to cultivate
0the same knowledge2 after him, called this Testament
the #lavicle or Key of Solomon, which they caused to be
engraved on 0pieces of2 the bark of trees, while the
Pentacles were inscribed in +ebrew letters on plates of
copper, so that they might be carefully preserved in the
Temple which that wise king had caused to be built
This Testament was in ancient time translated from the
+ebrew into the 1atin language by Eabbi $bognaGar,
who transported it with him into the town of $rles in
Provence, where by a notable piece of good fortune the
ancient +ebrew #lavicle, that is to say, this precious
translation of it, fell into the hands of the $rchbishop of
$rles, after the destruction of the *ews in that city6 who,
from the 1atin, translated it into the vulgar tongue, in
the same terms which here follow, without having either
changed or augmented the original translation from the
Drom #dd. =SS. EGIJF, AThe <ey o1 Solomon, translated into
>atin 1rom the ,ebrew idiom.A
Treasure up, O my son EoboamC the wisdom of my
words, seeing that !, Solomon, have received it from the
Then answered Eoboam, and said; +ow have ! deserved
to follow the example of my father Solomon in such
things, who hath been found worthy to receive the
knowledge of all living things through 0the teaching of2
an $ngel of 4od9
$nd Solomon said; +ear, O my son, and receive my
sayings, and learn the wonders of 4od "or, on a certain
night, when ! laid me down to sleep, ! called upon that
most holy ?ame of 4od, !$+, and prayed for the
!neffable Aisdom, and when ! was beginning to close
mine eyes, the $ngel of the 1ord, even +omadiel,
appeared unto me, spake many things courteously unto
me, and said; 1isten O SolomonC thy prayer before the
@ost +igh is not in vain, and since thou hast asked
neither for long life, nor for much riches, nor for the
souls of thine enemies, but hast asked for thyself
wisdom to perform Bustice Thus saith the 1ord;
$ccording to thy word have ! given unto thee a wise
and understanding heart, so that before thee was none
like unto thee, nor ever shall arise
$nd when ! comprehended the speech which was made
unto me, ! understood that in me was the knowledge of
all creatures, both things which are in the heavens and
things which are beneath the heavens6 and ! saw that all
the writings and wisdom of this present age were vain
and futile, and that no man was perfect $nd !
composed a certain work wherein ! rehearsed the secret
of secrets, in which ! have preserved them hidden, and !
have also therein concealed all secrets whatsoever of
magical arts of any masters6 any secret or experiments,
namely, of these sciences which is in any way worth
being accomplished $lso ! have written them in this
Key, so that like as a key openeth a treasure7house, so
this 0Key2 alone may open the knowledge and
understanding of magical arts and sciences
Therefore, O my sonC thou mayest see every experiment
of mine or of others, and let everything be properly
prepared for them, as thou shalt see properly set down
by me, both day and hour, and all things necessary6 for
without this there will be but falsehood and vanity in
this my work6 wherein are hidden all secrets and
mysteries which can be performed6 and that which is
0set down2 concerning a single divination or a single
experiment, that same ! think concerning all things
which are in the Iniverse, and which have been, and
which shall be in future time
Therefore, O my son Eoboam, ! command thee by the
blessing which thou expectest from thy father, that thou
shall make an !vory #asket, and therein place, keep, and
hide this my Key6 and when ! shall have passed away
unto my fathers, ! entreat thee to place the same in my
Sepulchre beside me, lest at another time it might fall
into the hands of the wicked $nd as Solomon
commanded, so was it done
$nd when, therefore 0men2 had waited for a long time,
there came unto the Sepulchre certain 3abylonian
Philosophers6 and when they had assembled they at
once took counsel together that a certain number of men
should renew the Sepulchre in his 0Solomon8s2 honour6
and when the Sepulchre was dug out and repaired the
!vory #asket was discovered, and therein was the Key
of Secrets, which they took with Boyful mind, and when
they had opened it none among them could understand
it on account of the obscurity of the words and their
occult arrangement, and the hidden character of the
sense and knowledge, for they were not worthy to
possess this treasure
Then, therefore, arose one among them, more worthy
0than the others2, both in the sight of the gods, and by
reason of his age, who was called !ohM 4revis
, and said
unto the others; Inless we shall come and ask the
interpretation from the 1ord, with tears and entreaties,
we shall never arrive at the knowledge of it
, ! think this is correct, but
the name is very indistinctly
written in the @S, which is
difficult to decipher !n
another copy of the #lavicle it
is written !roe 4recis, but !
think this is an error 7S1@
!n Sloane @s ,'>D it is clearly
rendered as =Ptolomeus the
4recian= 7*+P
Therefore, when each of them had retired to his bed,
!ohM indeed falling upon his face on the earth, began to
weep, and striking his breast, and said;
Ahat have ! deserved 0above others2, seeing that so
many men can neither understand nor interpret this
knowledge, even though there were no secret thing in
nature which the 1ord hath hidden from meC Aherefore
are these words so obscure9 Aherefore am ! so
$nd then on his bended knees, stretching his hands to
heaven, he said;
O 4od, the #reator of all, Thou Aho knowest all things,
Aho gavest so great Aisdom unto Solomon the Son of
%avid the King6 grant unto me, ! beseech Thee, O +oly
Omnipotent and !neffable "ather, to receive the virtue of
that wisdom, so that ! may become worthy by Thine aid
to attain unto the understanding of this Key Of Secrets
> 8@ihi8 in @S, but probably
a slip for 8unto him,8 8ei8
%o thou remember if the secrets of Solomon appear
hidden and obscure unto thee, that the 1ord hath
wished it, so that such wisdom may not fall into the
hands of wicked men6 wherefore do thou promise unto
me, that thou art not willing that so great wisdom
should ever come to any living creature, and that which
thou revealest unto any let them know that they must
keep it unto themselves, otherwise the secrets are
profaned and no effect can follow9
$nd !ohM answered; ! promise unto thee that to none
will ! reveal 0them2, save to the honour of the 1ord, and
with much discipline, unto penitent, secret, and faithful
Then answered the $ngel; 4o and read the Key, and its
words which were obscure throughout shall be manifest
unto thee
$nd after this the $ngel ascended into +eaven in a
"lame of "ire
Then !ohM was glad, and labouring with a clear mind,
understood that which the $ngel of the 1ord had said,
and he saw that the Key of Solomon was changed, so
that it appeared quite clear unto him plainly in all parts
$nd !ohM understood that this Aork might fall into the
hands of the ignorant, and he said; ! conBure him into
whose hands this secret may come, by the Power of the
#reator, and +is Aisdom, that in all things he may,
desire, intend and perform, that this Treasure may come
unto no unworthy 0person2, nor may he manifest it unto
any who is unwise, nor unto one who feareth not 4od
3ecause if he act otherwise, ! pray 4od that he may
never be worthy to attain unto the desired effect
$nd so he deposited the Key, which Solomon
preserved, in the !vory #asket 3ut the Aords of the Key
are as follows, divided into two books, and shown in
From Lansdowne MSS. 1203, "The Veritable Clavicles o
Solomon," translated rom the !ebrew into the Latin
b" the #abbi $bo%na&ar.
O my Son EoboamC seeing that of all Sciences there is
none more useful than the knowledge of #elestial
@ovements, ! have thought it my duty, being at the
point of death, to leave thee an inheritance more
precious than all the riches which ! have enBoyed $nd
in order that thou mayest understand how ! have
arrived at this degree 0of wisdom2, it is necessary to tell
thee that one day, when ! was meditating upon the
power of the Supreme 3eing, the $ngel of the 4reat 4od
appeared before me as ! was saying, O how wonderful
are the works of 4odC ! suddenly beheld, at the end of a
thickly7shaded vista of trees, a 1ight in the form of a
blaGing Star, which said unto me with a voice of
thunder; Solomon, Solomon, be not dismayed6 the 1ord
is willing to satisfy thy desire by giving thee knowledge
of whatsoever thing is most pleasant unto thee ! order
thee to ask of +im whatsoever thou desirest
Ahereupon, recovering from my surprise, ! answered
unto the $ngel, that according to the Aill of the 1ord, !
only desired the 4ift of Aisdom, and by the 4race of
4od ! obtained in addition the enBoyment of all the
#elestial treasures and the knowledge of all natural
!t is by this means, my Son, that ! possess all the virtues
and riches of which thou now seest me in the
enBoyment, and in order that thou mayest be willing to
be attentive to all which ! am about to relate to thee, and
that thou mayest retain with care all that ! am about to
tell thee, ! assure thee that the 4races of the 4reat 4od
will be familiar unto thee, and that the #elestial and
Terrestrial #reatures will be obedient unto thee, and a
science which only works by the strength and power of
natural things, and by the pure $ngels which govern
them Of which latter ! will give thee the names in order,
their exercises and particular employments to which
they are destined, together with the days over which
they particularly preside, in order that thou mayest
arrive at the accomplishment of all, which thou wilt find
in this my Testament !n all which ! promise thee
success, provided that all thy works only tend unto the
honour of 4od, Aho hath given me the power to rule,
not only over Terrestrial but also over #elestial things,
that is to say, over the $ngels, of whom ! am able to
dispose according to my will, and to obtain from them
very considerable services
"irstly !t is necessary for thee to understand that 4od,
having made all things, in order that they may be
submitted unto +im, hath wished to bring +is works to
perfection, by making one which participates of the
%ivine and of the Terrestrial, that is to say, @an6 whose
body is gross and terrestrial, while his soul is spiritual
and celestial, unto whom +e hath made subBect the
whole earth and its inhabitants, and hath given unto
+im means by which +e may render the $ngels
familiar, as ! call those #elestial creatures who are
destined; some to regulate the motion of the Stars,
others to inhabit the )lements, others to aid and direct
men, and others again to sing continually the praises of
the 1ord Thou mayest then, by the use of their seals and
characters, render them familiar unto thee, provided
that thou abusest not this privilege by demanding from
them things which are contrary to their nature6 for
accursed be he who will take the ?ame of 4od in vain,
and who will employ for evil purposes the knowledge
and good wherewith +e hath enriched us
! command thee, my Son, to carefully engrave in thy
memory all that ! say unto thee, in order that it may
never leave thee !f thou dost not intend to use for a
good purpose the secrets which ! here teach thee, !
command thee rather to cast this Testament into the fire,
than to abuse the power thou wilt have of constraining
the Spirits, for ! warn thee that the beneficent $ngels,
wearied and fatigued by thine illicit demands, would to
thy sorrow execute the commands of 4od, as well as to
that of all such who, with evil intent, would abuse those
secrets which +e hath given and revealed unto me
Think not, however, O my Son, that it would not be
permitted thee to profit by the good fortune and
happiness which the %ivine Spirits can bring thee6 on
the contrary, it gives them great pleasure to render
service to @an for whom many of these Spirits have
great liking and affinity, 4od having destined them for
the preservation and guidance of those Terrestrial things
which are submitted to the power of @an
There are different kinds of Spirits, according to the
things over which they preside6 some of them govern
the )mpyrean +eaven, others the Primum @obile,
others the "irst and Second #rystalline, others the Starry
+eaven6 there are also Spirits of the +eaven of Saturn,
which ! call Saturnites6 there are *ovial, @artial, Solar,
Henerean, @ercurial, and 1unar Spirits6 there are also
0Spirits2 in the )lements as well as in the +eavens, there
are some in the "iery Eegion, others in the $ir, others in
the Aater, and others upon the )arth, which can all
render service to that man who learns their nature, and
knows how to attract them
"urthermore, ! wish to make thee understand that 4od
hath destined to each one of us a Spirit, which watches
over us and takes care of our preservation6 these are
called 4enii, who are elementary like us, and who are
more ready to render service to those whose

discover the properties of the hour from &5 to & o8clock pm on a Tuesday, let
him look in the 8Table of the Planetary +ours,8 and having found the hour
marked & in the column headed 8+ours from @idnight to @idnight,8 he will see
in the column headed 8+ours from Sunset to Sunset,8 on the same line the figure
', showing it to be the eighth hour of the day6 and in the column headed
Tuesday, the name @ars, showing that it is under the dominion of the planet
@ars On consulting the 8Table of the @agical ?ames of the +ours,8 etc, he will
find under the number &, the name 3eron, and in the column 8Tuesday,8 the name
of the angel Samael over against it on the same line, showing that the ruler of the
hour is the $ngel Samael, and that its @agical ?ame is 3eron "urther, on
referring to the third Table he will see that Tuesday is under the rule of the
planet @ars, whose $rchangel is Khamael, $ngel Samael, @etal !ron, and
#olour Eed Similarly it will be found that the hour from &F to && pm on
Saturday is the sixth hour of the night, under the dominion of the Sun, that its
@agical ?ame is #Yerra, and that the $ngel @ichael rules it6 while Saturday
itself is under the dominion of the $rchangel TGaphqiel, of the $ngel #assiel, of

!t is, therefore, advisable to know that the
hours of the day and of the night together, are
twenty7four in number, and that each hour is
governed by one of the Seven Planets in
regular order, commencing at the highest and
descending to the lowest The order of the

the same "or example; 77
!n the %ays and +ours of Saturn thou canst
perform experiments to summon the Souls
from +ades, but only of those who have died a
natural death Similarly on these days and
hours thou canst operate to bring either good
or bad fortune to buildings6 to have familiar
Spirits attend thee in sleep6 to cause good or ill
success in business, possessions, goods, seeds,
fruits, and similar things, in order to acquire
learning6 to bring destruction and to give
death, and to sow hatred and discord
The %ays and hours of *upiter are proper for
obtaining honours, acquiring riches6
contracting friendships, preserving health6 and
arriving at all that thou canst desire
!n the %ays and +ours of @ars thou canst
make experiments regarding Aar6 to arrive at
military honour6 to acquire courage6 to
overthrow enemies6 and further to cause ruin,
slaughter, cruelty, discord6 to wound and to
give death
The %ays and +ours of the Sun are very good
for perfecting experiments regarding temporal
wealth, hope, gain, fortune, divination, the
favour of princes, to dissolve hostile feeling,
and to make friends
The %ays and +ours of Henus are good for
forming friendships6 for kindness and love6 for
Boyous and pleasant undertakings, and for

acquisition of merchandise by water

D @uch of these foregoing instructions is
omitted in the &F':5 $dd @SS, but
given in a different way in the ensuing
Thou shouldest take care punctually to
observe all the instructions contained in this
chapter, if thou desirest to succeed, seeing that
the truth of @agical Science dependeth
The hours of Saturn, of @ars, and of the @oon
are alike good for communicating and
speaking with Spirits6 as those of @ercury are
for recovering thefts by the means of Spirits
The hours of @ars serve for summoning Souls
from +ades,
especially of those slain in battle

The +ours of the Sun, of *upiter, and of Henus,
are adapted for preparing any operations
whatsoever of love, of kindness, and of
invisibility, as is hereafter more fully shown, to
which must be added other things of a similar
nature which are contained in our work
The +ours of Saturn and @ars and also the
days on which the @oon is conBunct

quartile aspect, are excellent for making
experiments of hatred, enmity, quarrel, and

discord and other operations of the same kind

all that we will say on the matter in the
chapters below2 7*+P
The +ours of the Sun, of *upiter, and of Henus,
particularly on the days which they rule, are
good for all extraordinary, uncommon, and
unknown operations
The +ours of the @oon are proper for making
trial of experiments relating to recovery of
stolen property, for obtaining nocturnal
visions, for summoning Spirits in sleep, and
for preparing anything relating to Aater
The +ours of Henus are furthermore useful for
lots, poisons, all things of the nature of Henus,
for preparing powders provocative of
madness6 and the like things

Z 1ans &5F5 inserts the tables of the
hours of the day and night at this point

3ut in order to thoroughly effect the
operations of this $rt, thou shouldest perform
them not only on the +ours but on the %ays of
the Planets as well, because then the
experiment will always succeed better,
provided thou observest the rules laid down
later on, for if thou omittest one single
condition thou wilt never arrive at the
accomplishment of the $rt
"or those matters then which appertain unto
the @oon, such as the !nvocation of Spirit, the

"or experiments of a peculiar nature, which
cannot be classed under any certain head, the
@oon should be in an $iry Sign, viG; 77

3ut if these things seem unto thee difficult to
accomplish, it will suffice thee merely to notice
the @oon after her combustion, or conBunction
with the Sun, especially Bust when she
his beams and appeareth visible "or then it is
good to make all experiments for the
construction and operation of any matter That
is why the time from the ?ew unto the "ull
@oon is proper for performing any of the
experiments of which we have spoken above
3ut in her decrease or wane it is good for Aar,
%isturbance, and %iscord 1ikewise the period
when she is almost deprived of light, is proper
for experiments of invisibility, and of %eath

3ut observe inviolably that thou commence
nothing while the @oon is in conBunction with
the Sun, seeing that this is extremely
unfortunate, and that thou wilt then be able to
effect nothing6 but the @oon quitting his
beams and increasing in 1ight, thou canst
perform all that thou desirest, observing
nevertheless the directions in this #hapter

Spirits it should be especially on the day of
@ercury and in his hour, and let the @oon he

Herily, since no experiments for converse with
Spirits can be done without a #ircle being
prepared, whatsoever experiments therefore
thou wishest to undertake for conversing with
Spirits, therein thou must learn to construct a
certain particular #ircle6 that being done
surround that #ircle with the #ircle of $rt for
better caution and efficacy
+OO, &

!f thou wishest to succeed, it is necessary
to make the following )xperiments and
$rts in the appropriate %ays and +ours,
with the requisite solemnities and
ceremonies contained and laid down in
the following #hapters
)xperiments, then, are of two kinds6 the
first is to make trial of what, as ! have said,
can be easily performed without a #ircle,
and in this case it is not necessary to
observe anything but what thou wilt find
in the proper #hapters The second can in
no way be brought to perfection without
the #ircle6 and in order to accomplish this
perfectly it is necessary to take note of all
the preparations which the @aster of the
$rt and his %isciples must undertake
before constructing
the #ircle
&, Sloane @SS ,F(& says, 83efore
they come to the #ircle8 7S1@
1ans &5F5 reads =avant de faire le

Kings 5'' also reads =vienne au

3efore commencing operations both the
@aster and his %isciple6 must abstain with
great and thorough continence during the
space of nine days from sensual pleasures
and from vain and foolish conversation6 as
plainly appeareth in the Second 3ook,
#hapter > Six of these nine days having
expired, he must recite frequently the
Prayer and #onfession as will be told him6
and on the Seventh %ay, the @aster being
alone, let him enter into a secret place, let
him take off his clothes, and bathe himself
from head to foot in consecrated and
exorcised water, saying devoutly and
humbly the prayer, 8O 1ord $donai,8 etc,
as it is written in the Second 3ook, #hapter
The Prayer being finished, let the @aster
quit the water, and put upon his flesh
raiment of white linen clean and unsoiled6
and then let him go with his %isciples unto
a secret place and command them to strip
themselves naked6 and they having taken
off their clothes, let him take exorcised
water and pour it upon their heads so that
it flows down to their feet and bathes them
completely6 and while pouring this water
upon them let the @aster say;77 83e ye
regenerate, renewed, washed, and pure,8
etc, as in 3ook !!, #hapter ,
being done, the %isciples must
clothe themselves, putting upon their
flesh, like their @aster, raiment of white
linen clean and unsoiled6 and the three last
days the @aster and his %isciples should
fast, observing the solemnities and prayers
marked in 3ook !!, #hapter 5
&> This paragraph is omitted in
1ansdowne @SS &5F5
?ote that the three last days should be
calm weather, without wind, and without
clouds rushing hither and thither over the
face of the sky On the last day let the
@aster go with his %isciples unto a secret
fountain of running water, or unto a
flowing stream, and there let each of them
taking off his clothes, wash himself with
due solemnity, as is rehearsed in 3ook !!
$nd when they are clean and pure, let
each put upon him garments of white
linen, pure, and clean, using the prayers
and ceremonies described in 3ook !! $fter
which let the @aster alone say the
confession The which being finished, the
@aster in sign of penitence will Kiss
%isciples on the forehead, and each of
them will Kiss the other $fterwards let
the @aster extend his hands over the
&- ?ote the 8holy kiss8 in the ?ew
Testament 84reet ye one another
with a holy kiss8
%isciples, and in sign of absolution
absolve and bless them 6 which being done
he will distribute to each of his disciple the
!nstruments necessary for @agical $rt,
which he is to carry into the #ircle
The "irst %isciple will bear the #enser, the
Perfumes and the Spices6 the Second
%isciple will bear the 3ook, Papers, Pens,
!nk, and any stinking or impure materials6
the Third will carry the Knife and the
Sickle of @agical $rt, the 1antern, and the
#andles6 the "ourth, the Psalms, and the
rest of the !nstruments6 the fifth, the
#rucible or #hafing7dish, and the #harcoal
or "uel6 but it is necessary for the @aster
himself to carry in his hand the Staff, and
the Aand or Eod The things necessary
being thus disposed, the @aster will go
with his %isciples unto the assigned place,
where they have proposed to construct the
#ircle for the @agical $rts and
experiments6 repeating on the way the
prayers and orations which thou wilt find
in 3ook !!
Ahen the @aster shall have arrived at the
place appointed, together with his
%isciples, he having lighted the flame of
the fire, and having exorcised it afresh as is
laid down in the Second 3ook, shall light
the #andle and place it in the 1antern,
which one of the %isciples is to hold ever
in his hand to light the @aster at his work
?ow the @aster of the $rt, every time that
he shall have occasion for some particular
purpose to speak with the Spirits, must
endeavor to form certain #ircles which
shall differ somewhat, and shall have
some particular reference to the particular
experiment under consideration ?ow, in
order to succeed in forming such a #ircle
concerning @agical $rt, for the greater
assurance and efficacy thou shalt construct
it in the following manner; 77
Take thou the Knife, the Sickle, or the
Sword of @agical $rt consecrated after the
manner and order which we shall deliver
unto thee in the Second 3ook Aith this
Knife or with the Sickle of $rt thou shalt

thou shalt have already formed, a second
#ircle, encompassing the other at the
distance of one foot therefrom and having
the same centre

Ahile constructing the #ircle, the @aster should recite the
following Psalms;77 Psalm ii6 Psalm liv6 Psalm cxiii6 Psalm
lxvii6 Psalm xlvii6 Psalm lxviii
Or he may as well recite them before tracing the #ircle
The which being finished, and the fumigations being
performed, as is described in the chapter on "umigations in
the Second 3ook, the @aster should reassemble his
%isciples, encourage them, reassure them, fortify them, and
conduct them into the parts of the #ircle of $rt, where he
must place them in the four quarters of the earth, encourage
them, and exhort them to fear nothing, and to keep in the
places assigned to them $lso, the %isciple who is placed
towards the )ast should have a pen, ink, paper, silk, and
white cotton, all clean and suitable for the work
"urthermore, each of the #ompanions should have a new
Sword drawn in his hand 0besides the consecrated @agical
Sword of $rt2, and he should keep his hand resting upon the
hilt thereof, and he should on no pretext quit the place
assigned to him, nor move therefrom
$fter this the @aster should quit the #ircle, light the fuel in
the earthen pots, and place upon them the #ensers, in the
"our Wuarters of the )arth6 and he should have in his hand
the consecrated taper of wax, and he should light it and
place it in a hidden and secret place prepared for it 1et him
after this re7enter and close the #ircle
The @aster should afresh exhort his %isciples, and explain
to them all that they have to do and to observe6 the which
commands they should promise and vow to execute
1et the @aster then repeat this Prayer; 77
Ahen we enter herein with all humility, let
4od the $lmighty One enter into this #ircle,
by the entrance of an eternal happiness, of a
%ivine prosperity, of a perfect Boy, of an
abundant charity, and of an eternal
salutation 1et all the demons fly from this
place, especially those who are opposed unto
this work, and let the $ngels of Peace assist
and protect this #ircle, from which let
discord and strife fly and depart @agnify

$fter this, let the @aster say upon his knees, as follows;
O 1ord 4od, $ll Powerful and $ll @erciful,
Thou Aho desirest not the death of a sinner,
but rather that he may turn from his
wickedness and live6 give and grant unto us
thy grace, by blessing and consecrating this
earth and this circle, which is here marked
out with the most powerful and holy ?ames
of 4od $nd thee, ! conBure, O )arth, by the

of +eaven, so that no obscene or unclean
spirit may have the power to enter into this
#ircle, or to annoy any person who is
therein6 though the 1ord 4od $%O?$!,
Aho liveth eternally unto the $ges of the

! beseech Thee, O 1ord 4od, the $ll
Powerful and the $ll @erciful, that Thou
wilt deign to bless this #ircle, and all this
place, and all those who are therein, and that
Thou wilt grant unto us, who serve Thee,
and rehearse nothing but the wonders of
Thy law, a good $ngel for our 4uardian6
remove from us every adverse power6
preserve us from evil and from trouble6
grant, O 1ord, that we may rest in this place
in all safety, through Thee, O 1ord, Aho
livest and reignest unto the $ges of the
$ges $men
1et the @aster now arise and place upon his head a #rown
made of paper 0or any other appropriate substance2, on the
which there must be written 0with the #olours and other
necessary things which we shall describe hereafter2, these
four ?ames $41$, $41$!, $41$T$, $41$T$! The
which ?ames are to be placed in the front, behind, and on
either side of the head
"urthermore, the @aster ought to have with him in the
#ircle, those Pentacles or @edals which are necessary to his
purpose, which are described hereinafter, and which should
be constructed according to the rules given in the #hapter
on Pentacles They should be described on virgin paper with
a pen6 and ink, blood, or colours, prepared according to the
manner which we shall hereafter show in the #hapters on
these subBects !t will be sufficient to take only those
Pentacles which are actually required, they should be sewed
to the front of the linen robe, on the chest, with the
consecrated needle of the $rt, and with a thread which has
been woven by a young girl
$fter this, let the @aster turn himself towards the )astern
Wuarter 0unless directed to the contrary, or unless he should
be wishing to call Spirits which belong to another quarter of
the Iniverse2, and pronounce with a loud voice the
#onBuration contained in this #hapter $nd if the Spirits be
disobedient and do not then make their appearance, he must
arise and take the exorcised Knife of $rt wherewith he hath
constructed the #ircle, and raise it towards the sky as if he
wished to beat or strike the $ir, and conBure the Spirits 1et
him then lay his right hand and the Knife upon the Pentacles
or @edals, constructed of, and described upon virgin paper,
which are fastened to or sewn upon his breast, and let him
repeat the following #onBuration upon his knees;77
O 1ord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come
unto Thee O 1ord 4od $lmighty, who has
reigned before the beginning of the $ges,

and all that in them is, all that is visible, and
all that is invisible by a single word6 ! praise
Thee, ! bless Thee, ! adore Thee, ! glorify

O 4od,
the "ather, $ll Powerful and $ll
@erciful, Aho hast created all things, Aho
knowest and conceivest them universally,
and to Ahom nothing is hidden, nothing is
impossible6 ! entreat Thy 4race for me and
for Thy servants, because Thou seest and
knowest well that we perform not this work
to tempt Thy Strength and Thy Power as if in
doubt thereof, but rather that we may know
and understand the truth of all hidden
things ! beseech Thee to have the kindness
to be favorable unto us6 by Thy Splendour,
Thy @agnificence, and Thy +oliness, and by
Thy +oly, Terrible, and !neffable ?ame !$+,
at which the whole world doth tremble, and
by the "ear with which all creatures obey
Thee 4rant, O 1ord, that we may become
responsive unto Thy 4race, so that through
it we may have a full confidence in and
knowledge of Thee, and that the Spirits may
discover themselves here in our presence,
and that those which are gentle and
peaceable may come unto us, so that they
may be obedient unto Thy commands,
through Thee, O @ost +oly $%O?$!,
Ahose Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom,
and Ahose )mpire endureth unto the $ges
of the $ges $men
$fter having said all these words devoutly, let the
@aster arise, and place his hands upon the
Pentacles, and let one of the #ompanions hold the
3ook open before the @aster, who, raising his eyes
to heaven, and turning unto the "our Wuarters of
the Iniverse, shall say;77
O 1ord, be Thou unto me a Tower of
Strength against the appearance and assault
of the )vil Spirits
$fter this, turning towards the "our Wuarters of the
Iniverse, he shall say the following words;77
These be the Symbols and the ?ames of the
#reator, which can bring Terror and "ear
unto you Obey me then, by the power of
these +oly ?ames, and by these @ysterious
Symbols of the Secret of Secrets
The which being said and done, thou shalt see
them draw near and approach from all parts 3ut
if they be hindered, detained, or occupied in some
way, and so that they cannot come, or if they are
unwilling to come, then, the Suffumigations and
#ensings being performed anew, and 0the
%isciples2 having anew, by especial order, touched
their Swords, and the @aster having encouraged
his %isciples, he shall reform the #ircle with the
Knife of $rt, and, raising the said Knife towards
the Sky, he shall as it were strike the air therewith
$fter this he shall lay his hand upon the Pentacles,
and having bent his knees before the @ost +igh,
he shall repeat with humility the following
#onfession6 the which his %isciples shall also do,
and they shall recite it in a low and humble voice,
so that they can scarcely be heard

ear unto the cry of the poor,

The %ays and +ours have already been treated of, in general, in the
"irst 3ook !t is now necessary to notice in particular at what hour
accomplishment and perfection should be given to the $rts, all things
necessary having been previously prepared
Should it then happen that thou hast undertaken any secret operation
for conversing with or conBuring Spirits, in which the day and the
hour are not marked, thou shalt put it in execution on the days and
hours of @ercury, at the sixteenth or twenty7third hour, but it will be
still better at the eighth, which is the third
of the same night, which is
called and means before the morning, for then thou shalt be able to
put in practice all the $rts and Operations which should be
performed, according as it shall please thee by day or by night,
provided that they have been prepared at the hours suitable to them,
as hath been already said 3ut when neither hour nor time of
operation or invocation is specified, it is then much better to perform
these experiments at night, seeing that it is more easy to the Spirits to
appear in the peaceful silence of night than during the day $nd thou
shouldst inviolably observe, that wishing to invoke the Spirits, either
by day or by night, it is necessary that it should be done in a place
hidden, removed, secret, convenient, and proper for such $rt, where
no man frequenteth or inhabiteth, as we shall relate more fully in its
5 !n &F':5 $dd @SS it says
8the second8
!f then thou shouldst operate touching anything which hath been
stolen, in whatever way it be performed and whatever way it may
have been prepared, it is necessary to practice it on the days and
hours of the @oon, being if possible in her increase, and from the first
unto the eighth hour of the day
3ut if it be by night, then it should be at the fifth or at the third hour6
but it is better by day than by the night, for the light Bustifieth them,
and maketh them much more fit for publication 3ut if the Operations
be regarding !nvisibility, they should be put in practice at the first,
second, and third hours of @ars by day 3ut if by night, until the
third hour !f they be Operations of seeking love, grace, or favor, they
should be performed until the eighth hour of the same day,
commencing with the first hour of the Sun6 and from the first hour of
Henus unto the first hour of the same day of Henus
$s for Operations of destruction and desolation, we should practice
and put them into execution on the day of Saturn at the first hour, or
rather at the eighth or fifteenth of the day6 and from the first until the
eighth hour of the night
)xperiments of games, raillery, deceit, illusion, and invisibility, ought
to be done at the first hour of Henus, and at the eighth hour of the
day6 but by night at the third and at the seventh
$t all times of practicing and putting into execution @agical $rts, the
@oon should be increasing in light, and in an equal number of
degrees with the Sun6 and it is much better from the first quarter to
the Opposition, and the @oon should be in a fiery Sign, and notably
in that of the Eam or of the 1ion
Therefore, to execute these )xperiments in any manner whatsoever, it
should be done when the @oon is clear, and when she is increasing in
!n order to put in execution those of !nvisibility after everything is
properly prepared, the @oon should be in the Sign of the "ishes, in
the hours proper and fitting, and she should be increasing in light
"or experiments of seeking love and favor, in whatever way it may be
desired, they will succeed, provided that they have been prepared at
the proper hours and that the @oon be increasing in light and in the
Sign of the Twins
So exact a preparation of days and hours is not necessary for those
who are adepts in the $rt, but it is extremely necessary for
apprentices and beginners, seeing that those who have been little or
not at all instructed herein, and who only begin to apply themselves
to this $rt, do not have as much faith in the experiments as those who
are adepts therein, and who have practiced them 3ut as regards
beginners, they should always have the days and hours well disposed
and appropriate unto the $rt $nd the Aise should only observe the
precepts of the $rt which are necessary, and in observing the other
solemnities necessary they will operate with a perfect assurance
!t is, nevertheless, necessary to take care that when thou shalt have
prepared any experiment thyself for the days and hours ordained,
that it should be performed in clear, serene, mild, and pleasant
weather, without any great tempest or agitation of the air, which
should not be troubled by winds "or when thou shalt have conBured
any Spirits in any art or experiment, they will not come when the $ir
is troubled or agitated by winds, seeing that Spirits have neither flesh
nor bones, and are created of different substances
Some are created from Aater
Others from Aind, unto which they are like
Some from )arth
Some from #louds
Others from Solar Hapors
Others from the keenness and strength of "ire6 and when they are
invoked or summoned, they come always with great noise, and with
the terrible nature of fire
Ahen the Spirits which are created of Aater are invoked, they come
with great rains, thunder, hail, lightning, thunder7bolts, and the like
Ahen the Spirits which are created of #louds are invoked, they come
with great deformity, in a horrible form, to strike fear into the
!nvocator, and with an exceeding great noise
which are formed from wind appear like thereunto and with
exceeding swift motion, and whensoever those which are created
from 3eauty
appear, they will show themselves in a fair and
agreeable form6 moreover, whensoever thou shalt call the Spirits
created from $ir, they will come with a kind of gentle breeGe

Wabalistical Sephira or
)manation, from the %eity,
which is called Tiphereth, or
Ahen the Spirits which are created from the Hapours of the Sun are
invoked, they come under a very beautiful and excellent form, but
filled with pride, vanity, and conceit They are clever, whence it
comes that these last are all specified by Solomon in his book of
ornament, or of beauty They show great ostentation and vainglory in
their dress, and they reBoice in many ornaments6 the boast of
possessing mundane beauty, and all sorts of ornaments and
decorations Thou shalt only invoke them in serene, mild, and
pleasant weather
The Spirits
which are created of "ire reside in the east, those created
of Aind in the south
- ! have usually found it said
exactly vice%versL
?ote then that it will be much better to perform the experiments or
operations in the direction of the east, putting everything necessary in
practice towards that point
3ut for all other operations or extraordinary experiments, and for those of
love, they will be much more efficacious directed towards the north
Take heed further, that every time that thou performest any experiment, to
reduce it unto perfection with the requisite solemnities, thou shalt
recommence the former experiment if interrupted therein, without the
preparation of hours or other solemnities
!f by chance it should happen that having performed an experiment with
due observance of days, hours, and requisite solemnities, thou shalt find it
unsuccessful, it must be in some manner false, ill7arranged and defective,
and thou must assuredly have failed in some matter6 for if thou doest ill in
one single point, these experiments or these $rts will not be verified
Thus upon this #hapter dependeth this whole Key of $rts, )xperiments,
and Operations, and although every solemnity be rightly observed, no
experiment will be verified, unless thou canst penetrate the meaning of
this #hapter

hath been said, and after this a day appointed and set apart !t will be
necessary for thee to wait for the hour in which thou shouldst commence
the Operation6 but when once it shall be commenced at this hour, thou
shalt be able to continue it unto the end, seeing that it deriveth its force
and virtue from its beginning, which extendeth to and spreadeth over the

Ahen the @aster of the $rt wisheth to put in practice any Operation or
)xperiment, especially one of importance, he should first consider of what
#ompanions he should avail himself This is the reason why in every
Operation whose )xperience should be carried out in the #ircle, it is well
to have three #ompanions $nd if he cannot have #ompanions, he should
at least have with him a faithful and attached dog 3ut if it be absolutely
necessary for him to have #ompanions, these #ompanions should be
obligated and bound by oath to do all that the @aster shall order or
prescribe them, and they should study, observe, and carefully retain, and
be attentive unto all which they shall hear "or those who shall act
otherwise shall suffer and endure many pains and labors, and run into
many dangers, which the Spirits will cause and procure for them, and for
this cause sometimes they shall even die
The %isciples then, being well and thoroughly instructed, and fortified
with a wise and understanding heart, the @aster shall take exorcised
Aater, and he shall enter with his %isciples into a secret place purified and
clean, where he must strip them entirely naked6 after this, let him pour
exorcised water upon their heads, which he should cause to flow from the
crown of their head unto the sole of their foot, so as to bathe them entirely
therewith6 and while bathing them thus, he should say;77
3e ye regenerate, cleansed, and
purified, in the ?ame of the
!neffable, 4reat, and )ternal 4od,
from all your iniquities, and may
the virtue of the @ost +igh descend
upon you and abide with you
always, so that ye may have the
power and strength to accomplish
the desires of your heart $men
$fter this let the %isciples robe themselves as the @aster hath done, and
fast like him for three days, repeating the same prayer6 let them act like
him, and in the work let them implicitly follow and obey him in all things
3ut if the @aster of the $rt wisheth to have a dog for his #ompanion, he
must bathe him thoroughly with the exorcised water in the same manner
as the %isciples, and let him perfume him with the odours and incense of
$rt, and let him repeat the following #onBuration over him;77
! conBure thee, O thou #reature,
being a %og, by +im Aho hath
created thee, ! bathe and ! perfume
thee in the ?ame of the @ost +igh,
@ost Powerful, and )ternal 4od, so
that thou mayest be my true
#ompanion in this operation, and
that thou mayest be also my faithful
friend in whatsoever Operation !
may hereafter perform
3ut if he wisheth to have for his companion a little boy or girl, which will
be still better, he must ordain them as he hath ordained the dog6 and he
must pare and cut the nails of their hands and of their feet, saying;77
! conBure thee, O thou #reature,
being a young girl 0or boy2, by the
@ost +igh 4od, the "ather of all
#reatures, by the "ather $%O?$!
)1O+!@, and by the "ather
)1!O?, that thou shalt have neither
will nor power to hide from me
anything, nor yet to keep back from
me the truth in all which ! shall
demand of thee, and that thou be
obedient and faithful unto me
1et him purify, cleanse, and wash this young child anew, with the Aater
of $rt, saying;77
3e thou regenerate, cleansed, and
purified, so that the Spirits may
neither harm thee nor abide in thee
Then perfume the child with odours as above
Ahen the #ompanions shall be thus ordained and disposed, the @aster
shalt be able to operate in surety together with them, every time that it
shall please him6 and he shall perform his operation happily, and shall
attain his end
3ut for the safety both of soul and of body, the @aster and the
#ompanions should have the Pentacles before their breasts, consecrated,
and covered with a silken veil, and perfumed with the proper
fumigations 3y the which being assured and encouraged, they may enter
into the matter without fear or terror, and they shall be exempt and free
from all perils and dangers, provided that they obey the commands of the
@aster and do all that he ordain them !f they shall act thus, all things shall
go according unto their desires
$ll being thus arranged, the @aster should take heed that +is %isciples
are perfectly instructed in those things which they have to perform
These #ompanions or %isciples should be three in number, without
including the @aster They may also be of the number of five, of seven, or
of nine6 but so that they ever implicitly obey the orders of their @aster6 for
thus only shall all things come to a successful issue

A+)? the @aster of the $rt shall wish to perform his operations, having
previously arranged all things which it is necessary to observe and
practise6 from the first day of the )xperiment, it is absolutely necessary to
ordain and to prescribe care and observation, to abstain from all things
unlawful, and from every kind of impiety, impurity, wickedness, or
immodesty, as well of body as of soul6 as, for example, eating and
drinking superabundantly, and all sorts of vain words, buffooneries,
slanders, calumnies, and other useless discourse6 but instead to do good
deeds, speak honestly, keep a strict decency in all things, never lose sight
of modesty in walking, in conversation, in eating and drinking, and in all
things6 the which should be principally done and observed for nine days,
before the commencement of the Operation The %isciples should do the
same, and should equally put in practice all things necessary to be
observed, if they wish to make use of all these operations and
3ut before the commencement of the work, it is absolutely necessary that
the @aster with his %isciples repeat the following #onBuration once in the
morning, and twice in the evening;77

%uring the three last days before the commencement of this action, thou
shalt content thyself with only eating fasting diet, and that only once in the
day6 and it will be better still if thou only partakest of bread and water
Thou shalt also abstain from every impure thing6 reciting the prayer above
written $nd on the last day, when thou shalt wish to commence the
Operation, thou shalt remain all day without eating, and later on thou
shalt go into a secret place, where thou shalt confess all thy sins unto 4od
with a contrite heart The %isciples also, together with the @aster, shall
recite the same #onfession with a low but distinct voice, as hath been
already said in the "irst 3ook

place withdrawn from men, cleansed, and pure, where thou canst not be

perseverance, they will be constrained to come, and it will at length
happen that at thy first invocation thou wilt be able to see and
communicate with them 3ut ! advise thee to undertake nothing
unclean or impure, for then thy importunity, far from attracting
them, will only serve to chase them from thee6 and it will be
thereafter exceedingly difficult for thee to attract them for use for
pure ends

!n many operations it is necessary to make some sort of sacrifice
unto the %emons, and in various ways Sometimes white animals
are sacrificed to the good Spirits and black to the evil Such
sacrifices consist of the blood and sometimes of the flesh
They who sacrifice animals, of whatsoever kind they be, should
select those which are virgin, as being more agreeable unto the
Spirits, and rendering them more obedient
Ahen blood is to be sacrificed it should be drawn also from virgin
quadrupeds or birds, but before offering the oblation, say;77
@ay this Sacrifice which we find it proper to
offer unto ye, noble and lofty 3eings, be
agreeable and pleasing unto your desires6 be
ye ready to obey us, and ye shall receive
greater ones
Then perfume and sprinkle it according to the rules of $rt
Ahen it is necessary, with all the proper #eremonies, to make
Sacrifices of fire, they should be made of wood which hath some
quality referring especially unto the Spirits invoked6 as Buniper, or
pine, unto the Spirits of Saturn6 box, or oak, unto those of *upiter6
cornel, or cedar, unto those of @ars6 laurel unto those of the Sun6
myrtle unto those of Henus6 haGel unto those of @ercury6 and
willow unto those of the @oon
3ut when we make sacrifices of food and drink, everything
necessary should be prepared without the circle, and the meats
should be covered with some fine clean cloth, and have also a clean
white cloth spread beneath them6 with new bread and good and
sparkling wine, but in all things those which refer to the nature of
the Planet $nimals, such as fowls or pigeons, should be roasted
)specially shouldst thou have a vessel of clear and pure fountain
water, and before thou enterest into the #ircle, thou shalt summon
the Spirits by their proper ?ames, or at least those chief among
them, saying;77
!n whatsoever place ye may be, ye Spirits,
who are invited to this feast, come ye and be
ready to receive our offerings, presents, and
sacrifices, and ye shall have hereafter yet
more agreeable oblations
Perfume the viands with sweet incense, and sprinkle them with
exorcised water6 then commence to conBure the Spirits until they
shall come
This is the manner of making sacrifices in all arts and operations
wherein it is necessary, and acting thus, the Spirits will be prompt
to serve thee
+ere endeth our Key, the which if thou thoroughly instillest into
thy memory, thou shalt be able, if it pleaseth thee, even to fly with
the wings of the wind 3ut if thou takest little heed hereof, and
despiseth this 3ook, never shalt thou attain unto the desired end in
any @agical experiment or operation whatsoever

and those of the #entre6 then if thou investest the
Sacred 1adder, if thou descendest instead of
ascending, thou wilt discover the #ounter7
+ierarchy of the Shells, or of the %ead Spirits
Know thou only that the Principalities of +eaven,
the Hirtues, and the Powers, are not Persons, but
They are the %egrees of the Sacred 1adder upon
which the Spirits ascend and descend
@ichael, 4abriel, Eaphael, and the others, are not
?ames but Titles
The "irst of the ?umbers is the Inity
The "irst of the %ivine #onceptions called the

Sephira is ?etGach, or Hictory

Tetragram changed into the Pentagram by the
addition of the 1etter Schin 0see Digure (>2
)ach letter of this Pentagram represents a power
of good attacked by the five accursed nations

allegorical legend of +umanity
The five accursed nations are;77
& The $malekites or $ggressors6
5 The 4eburim or Hiolent Ones6
, The Eaphaim or #owards6
> The ?ephilim or Holuptuous Ones6
- The $nakim or $narchists
The $narchists are vanquished by the Rod, which
is the Sceptre of the "ather
The Hiolent are vanquished by the +M8, which is
the 4entleness of the @other
The #owards are vanquished by the Hau, which is
the Sword of @ichael, and 4eneration by travail
and pain
The Holuptuous are vanquished by the second
+M, which is the painful bringing forth of the
1astly, the $ggressors are vanquished by the
Schin, which is the "ire of the 1ord and the
equilibrating 1aw of Bustice
The Princes of the Perverse Spirits are the "alse
4ods whom they adore
+ell has then no other government than that fatal
law which punishes perversity and corrects error,
for the false 4ods only exist in the false opinion of
their adorers
3aal, 3elphegor, @oloch, $dramelech, have been
the idols of the Syrians6 idols without soul, idols
now destroyed, and of whom the ?ame alone
The True 4od hath vanquished all the %emons as
Truth triumphs over )rror That is past in the
opinions of men, and the Aars of @ichael against
Satan are the symbols of movement, and of the
progress of Spirits
The %evil is ever a 4od of refusal
$ccredited idolatries are religions in their time
Superannuated idolatries are Superstitions and
The Pantheon of Phantoms, which are then in
vogue, is the +eaven of the !gnorant
The Eeceptacle of Phantoms, whom "olly even
wisheth for no longer, is the +ell
3ut all this existeth only in the !magination of the
"or the Aise, +eaven is the Supreme Eeason, and
+ell is "olly
3ut !t must be understood that we here employ
the word +eaven in the @ystical sense which we
give it in opposing to it the word +ell
!n order to evoke Phantoms it is sufficient to
intoxicate oneself or to render oneself mad6 for
Phantoms are ever the companions of
drunkenness and of vertigo
The Phosphorus of the imagination, abandoned to
all the caprices of over7excited and diseased
nerves, fills itself with @onsters and absurd
Ae can also arrive at hallucination by mingling
together wakefulness and sleep by the graduated
use of narcotics6 but such actions are crimes
against nature
Aisdom chaseth away Phantoms, and enables us
to communicate with the Superior Spirits by the
contemplation of the 1aws of ?ature and the
study of the +oly ?umbers
0+ere King Solomon addresseth himself to his
son, Eoboam2;77
%o thou, O my son Eoboam, remember, that the
"ear of $donai is only the beginning of Aisdom
Keep and preserve those who have not

give and will preserve unto thee my crown

the ?umbers
The 1etters are from the ?umbers, and the
?umbers from the !deas, and the !deas from the
"orces, and the "orces from the )lohim The
Synthesis of the )lohim is the Schema
The Schema is one, its columns are two, its power
is three, its form is four, its reflection giveth eight,
which multiplied by three giveth unto thee the
twenty7four Thrones of Aisdom
Ipon each Throne reposeth a #rown with three
Eays, each Eay beareth a ?ame, each ?ame is an
$bsolute !dea There are Seventy7two ?ames
upon the Twenty7four #rowns of the Schema
Thou shalt write these ?ames upon Thirty7six
Talismans, two upon each Talisman, one on each
Thou shalt divide these Talismans into four series
of nine each, according to the number of the
1etters of the Schema
Ipon the first Series thou shalt engrave the 1etter
Rod, symboliGed by the "lowering Eod of $aron
