In the first hierarchy are the Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones. These more than celestial spirits are called gods, or the sons of the gods, because they continually behold the order of divine providence. Being foremost in the goodness of God, they praise Him unceasingly and pray for us. The second in the being of God, according to form, and the third, in the wisdom of God, stand continually before God. In the middle hierarchy are the Dominations, Powers, Virtues, as spirits of intelligence, to rule the whole world. The first command what the others perform.
The second prevent that which interferes with the laws of God. The third oversee the heavens and occasionally perform great wonders. These six orders of spirits are never sent upon the earth. In the lower hierarchy are the Principalities, Archangels, and Angels, which are ministering spirits to oversee earthly affairs. The first, in general, provide for princes and magistrates, and care for kingdoms and countries, each in his own especial sphere, as Moses declares in his song, Deut.
And Jesus Sirach bears witness, that each nation has its angel as a director. Therefore did the Romans at all times invite the angel of their country. The second are engaged in divine affairs, institute and regulate the worship of God among all men, and present the prayers, offerings and piety of men to God; 3. For this reason the fourth hierarchy are added to the former as the souls of heavenly bodies Animae Corporum Colestium , the souls of Heroes, or demigods and of the Martyrs.
The second are the chosen souls of the redeemed. The third are the souls of the innocent martyrs and followers of God, who offered up their lives, amid pain and suffering, out of love to God. Therefore, it is, that all creatures fear and honor him. The first course in Mundo Coelesti watches day and night.
Primum Mobile Rechet Hagallalim. It continues from morning until night. From these the Heathens divided the angels into thirty-three orders. The first great light, communicates light, life and station out of the first course, and opposes others in the Sphaera Zodiaci , causes summer and winter, the spring of all the things of the elements: Hebrew Masloth , goes from evening to morning according to the twelve signs of the heavens.
But even if all things have their existence from God, the great First Cause, we should not despise other causes, according to changes in time, in the year, in the month, day and hour, neither should we regard these causes exclusively, and forget God, for in this manner heathen idolatry was instituted. For this reason God does not regard time, because it robs him of his honor. For the heathens experienced that the heavenly spirits were not united with their bodies, as our souls are united with our bodies, but they could rejoice in the presence of God, and prepare their bodies without much labor to work with the lower creatures of God.
They regarded the celestial spirits as gods, and conferred divine honors upon them. Very often the Jews turned away from God and worshipped the host of heaven, and therefore the wrath of God was kindled against them. But on account of the order of all things, God has set them before us as his instruments, and which we, on account of their honorable office, are to regard as the noblest creation of God, and that we should honor them, next to God, according to their station, not as gods but as creatures, which he has appointed as twelve princes over the twelve gates of heaven, that they may admit what they received from the divine name, transposed twelve times.
Ezekiel writes: "The laws of the twelve tribes of Israel were thus written, and God Tetragrammaton ruled over them. Thus it is written in Revelations, that the stones in our heavenly city are planted in the ground, or that the Church of Christ is represented by the twelve names of the Apostles, including twelve angels and of them the name of Jesus, who received all the power of the Father, so that the heavens will receive what the angels give to them according to the will of God. Therefore, there are twelve princes of angels, who represent the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and thirty-six, who represent so many Decuriis , and seventy-two angels, who represent so many Quinariis of heaven, of the seventy-two nations and languages of man.
Likewise seven angels of the hosts for the seven heavens of the seven planets, to rule the world, etc. Also, four angels who represent the Triplicitatibus of the twelve signs of the Zodiac and the four elements. All of these have their names and signs which the philosophers used in their works, signs, images, clothes, mirrors, rings, cards, wax-figures, as if they had a sun-work before them, and they called them the names of the Sun and his angels, and likewise of others, etc.
In the third place, they designated the lowest angels as servants. These they distributed over the world, and named them after the seven planets, and these have their special course after the four elements and after the four parts of the air and earth — of the daytime several Diurnos , several Nocturnos , several Meridianos , 81 not that they are subordinate to the influence of the stars as the body which they represent, but that they are more nearly related to the star-body-kind-time than others, otherwise they might be everywhere, as each human being has three angels, for God has ordained that each human being shall have his good angel as a protector, who also strengthens the spirit and urges and exhorts us to what is good and commendable, that we may fly from what is fati malignitatem.
The angel and his impulses come from the stars. In the third place are the Genii of man who govern birth, and are joined to each perfection in man. These are recognized from the star which is the Lord of the births. The Chaldeans seek this Genium in the Sun and Moon. The evil one out of the sixth house. But each one will learn to know him through natural inclination, to which every one was inclined from his youth. On this account he is called the birth-angel, who is sent into the world by God. Of this the Psalmist says: "Thou hast made the spirit of man as a flame of fire. If, however, a virgin or a companion becomes marriageable, he may be liberated from the glass, and our time of life will be extended.
Diurnos, nocturnos, meridianos: Of the day, of the night, of midday. Fati malignitatem: Evil fate. This is referred to as Ars Pyronomica 'the art of controlling the fire'. It refers to an obscure alchemical process; in the terminology of spiritual alchemy it refers to controlling one's astral body. Josten explains the latter in his introduction to Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica: "In another dark passage, which alludes to the philosophers' mercury and its replacement by the Sun, i.
XII, , p. And then again he has another character in the number of God, Hesed — the right and scepter of God, through which he finds favor in the sight of God and all his creatures. Therefore, through the other divine numbers, and through the angels and stars a man becomes impressed with signs and characters of conscience, which causes him to be happy at one time and unhappy at another.
On this account, if a man has committed murder, theft, or any other act which his conscience condemns, he can be brought to a confession of his guilt through persistent calling upon the name of God, for his conscience will then give him no rest until he returns what he has stolen, or until he has suffered the punishment due to his crime. Therefore, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, take three small pieces of wood from the door-sill over which the thief passed in leaving the place where he committed the theft, place them within a wagon-wheel, and then through the hub of the wheel say the following words: "I pray thee, thou Holy Trinity, that thou mayest cause A, who stole from me B, a, C, to have no rest or peace until he again restores me that which he has stolen.
If a man knows himself and realizes that he is created in the image and likeness of God, he will acknowledge God the Creator before all things, and afterward the world and all its creatures. To this end the soul must first be purified, and dedicated to God through faith; a pure heart and constant joy in the spirit are requisites. He must possess love to God and his fellow-man, and then he may arrive at a perfect state and become like unto the Son of God. He will become united with God, and will once more be like him.
It is not given to angels nor to any creature to unite with God, but only to man, and he may become his son; and when this takes place, so that he overcomes himself, he overcomes and can draw to him all other creatures and command their obedience. But our spirit, word, and act, have no power in magic and knowledge, if they are not everywhere strengthened by the word of God, which we should hear often. Christ says: "What ye have done unto the least of mine, that have ye also done unto me. On the other hand there are others who will be rejected.
For Christ also says: "I was hungry and thirsty and ye gave me no meat and drink, depart from me ye workers of iniquity, into outer darkness. And thus God led all creatures to Adam in order to have them named, and their names indicated some peculiar quality or part possessed by each.
Moreover, the celestial office to which man is ordained by God, endows him with power to confer life, and tells him what to encourage, what to elevate, what to suppress in his cause Sphaera, and to perform wonderful works with full devotion toward God, etc. What Man Receives from the Order of Angels. Man becomes strengthened with wonderful power through the order of angels, so that he declares the divine will. From the Seraphim , that we cling with fervent love.
From the Cherubim , enlightenment of the mind, power, and wisdom over the exalted figures and images, through which we can gaze upon divine things, etc. From the Thrones , a knowledge of how we are made and constituted, that we may direct our thoughts upon eternal things. From Dominations , assistance to bring into subjection our daily enemies, whom we carry with us constantly, and enabling us to attain salvation. From Powers , protection against human enemies of life. From Virtues , God infuses strength into us, enabling us to contend against the enemies of truth and reward, that we may finish the course of our natural life.
From Principalities , that all things become subject to man, that he may grasp all power, and draw unto himself all secret and supernatural knowledge. From Archangels , that he may rule over all things that God has made subject to him, over the animals of the field, over the fishes of the sea, and over the birds of the air.
From the Angels he receives the power to be the messenger of the Divine will. What Man may Obtain from the Twelve Signs. In Aries , the vegetables of earth obtain new vigor, the trees sap, and females become better adapted to propagate the human species. In this sign the fecundity of all creatures is limited and regulated. It has Sunday for its peculiar time and end. In Taurus , all transactions and enterprises are prospered and fostered, so that they may go forward according to the will of God, but to this end constant prayers are necessary, and particularly on Sunday.
In Gemini , the angels have power over bodily changes and travel from one place to another over the heavens and through the course of the stars — have power over the motion of the waters in rivers and in the sea, cause love between brethren, friends, and neighbors, and give warning against dangers, persons, and objects. In Leo , the angels have power to move every living thing, to multiply their species, to watch, and in certain manners to judge. And through the gift of God they confer Physicam, Medicinam, and Alchymiam.
In Virgo , the spirits have power to subvert kingdoms, to regulate all conditions, to discriminate between master and servant, to command evil spirits, to confer perpetual health, and give to man Musicum, Logicam, and Ethicam. In Libra , the angels derive from God great power, inasmuch as the Sun and Moon stand under this sign. They have power over danger, warfare, over quarrels, and slander — lead armies in all quarters of the earth, cause rain, and give to man Arithmeticam, Astronomiam, Geometriam. In Scorpio , the angels have power over suffering and terror, over which man makes against God, over common privileges.
They govern the life and death of all creatures, have power over departed souls, and give to man Theologiam, Metaphysicam, and Geomantiam. In the Aquarius , angels keep man in good health, and teach him what is injurious to him, make him contented, and teach him through the command of God the mysteries of heaven and of nature. In Pisces , the angels compel the evil spirits to become subject to man, protect the pious, so that the great enemy cannot harm him. The twelve angels, which represent the twelve signs, are called in the Apoc. Agrippa reads "Gabriel" in OP2. This method of obtaining all kinds of things with peculiar power, in the twelve signs, is described in many kinds of books.
Further, King Solomon teaches a hidden Almadel 89 or a Geometrical figure bearing upon the twelve signs of heaven, which he calls heights, and gives to each height seven or eight names of princes. There are many references to Solomon's Almadel in Agrippa and other sources. Perhaps the text by this name in the collection known as the Lesser Key of Solomon or Lemegeton is a version of the same text. The heights are named as follows:. EE: "Samaym. Shamayim the common Hebrew word for heaven or sky , and 2. Morgan, Sepher Ha-Razim , pp.
Of the operations of these, and their angels, office, order, number, and measure, an account may be found in a work by Rasiel [Raziel], which constitutes, the Sixth Book, Physicum Salomonis , and Elementa Magica Petri de Abano 2 page From this book the book of the angel Tractatu takes its source.

The chief angel is called Michael. The fifth heaven, Matthey, 5 aly Machon , has the prince Samael who is served by two millions of angels. These are divided among the four quarters of the world; in each quarter three, who control the twelve months, and over these are twelve chief angels.
The sixth heaven, Zebul , has for its prince, Zachiel , with two millions of angels. They rule over kings, create fear, and give protection from enemies. There are seven princes who stand continually before God, to whom are given the spirit-names of the planets.
They are called Sabathiel , Zedekiel , Madimiel , Semeliel or Semishiah , Nogahel , Coahabiath or Cochabiel , Jareahel or Jevanael , for the planets are called for themselves: Sabachay [Sabathay], through which God sends hunger and tribulation upon the earth. Sodeck [Zedek], through him come honor and favor, right and holiness of man.

Cochab , from him proceeds all trade and commerce. Lavahan [Lavanah], causes all things to increase and decrease. I, Solomon, acknowledge that in the hours Sabachay and Madym it is burdensome to labor, but in the hours Zadeck and Noga labor is light. During other hours labor is middling, sometimes good and occasionally bad. Some writers, as for example, Cornelius Agrippa, Occult.
Others, one hundred and forty-five years. Spiritus Septem in Conspectu Dei throni sunt quos reperi etiam presidere Planetis. S and EE read " Lib.

This eminent publisher and translator insists stringently that only persons of a moral character can expect success in the use of the foregoing method. Selig: Gottfried Selig , publisher of the German Leipzig periodical Jude, about Jewish customs and practices. It cannot be denied that true, wise and enlightened Kabbalists lived at one time, and that some still live.
But such do not wander from place to place, offering their art for sale, in order that they may accumulate wealth, but they are satisfied to remain quietly in the pillared palace of Solomon, where they are constantly employed in gathering divine wisdom, so that as they express it , they may finally become worthy to receive the hidden gifts from above. When I once asked him why he refused to write a desired amulet for a noble lord, who offered him a large sum for his services, he answered me with an adage from the well-known Pirke Awoth Extract or Fragment from the Fathers : "Deitschtammasch Betaggo Chalof," that is to say, "whosoever accepts the crown for his reward, will perish suddenly.
Not for all the money in the world would I do such a thing. For my necessary support I do not feel any concern, for the Almighty has methods to support me if I trust in Him. Why, he even cares for the sparrow. Let this suffice for this one kind of men. But that Kabbalists live and still live, who engaged in experiments, and who performed wonderful works, and who will yet do wonderful things, is also an undeniable fact, unless we are prepared to condemn all that was ever said upon this subject by renowned men of wisdom.
The celebrated and well-known Prussian Hussar, Lord of Archenwood declares, in a description of London, that there lives a man in that city, whose name is Doctor Falcon, who is known to be a great Kabbalist, and who is visited and consulted by the most honorable and intelligent people of London. He states further, that this same Dr. I confidently hope and trust, and I can assert without hesitation, that my little book cannot have a tendency to foster superstition.
Before concluding my preface, it is necessary to give the reader some instruction concerning the arrangement of this volume. This fact should not prevent any one from purchasing the book. Because all the words printed in Hebrew and Chaldaic, which are intended to be impressed Upon the mind, are also printed in English in plain terms, and they have been carefully translated. So far as the Hebrew passages are concerned, the meaning of each passage and experiment follows immediately in English, or it is placed beneath the Hebrew expression.
It is universally known and acknowledged, that we are named after the most holy name of the Ruler of the World, and that we receive the holy Decalogue or the written law from him. It is further well known that in addition to the laws which he gave to Moses engraved upon stone, he also gave to him certain verbal laws, by which, through his protracted stay upon the mountain Sinai, where all doctrines, explanations of mysteries, holy names of God and the angels, and particularly how to apply this knowledge to the best interest of man, were entrusted to him.
All these doctrines, which God pronounced good, but which were not generally made known, and which in the course of time were called The Kabbalah, or Traditions, Moses communicated, during his life, to Joshua, his successor. Joshua handed them over to the elders, the elders gave them to the judges, and from the judges they descended to the prophets.
Therefore do we know that in the Thora are many names of the Most High and his angels, besides deep mysteries, which may be applied to the welfare of man, but which, on account of the perverseness of humanity and to guard against their abuse, have been hidden from the great mass of human beings. Everything that I have here stated is as clear as the Sun, and needs no further proof, and it is equally clear and incontrovertible that the All-merciful gave the Thora in the beginning to promote the best interests of the soul and the body of man at the same time.
On this account, the expression.
And Solomon says in his Proverbs vi. Our wise men declare, "He who will daily live closer to God, who deserves to unite his soul with Him, and who is willing to live in the closest communion with him, should often pray the Psalms with fervor and devotion. Happy the man who does this daily and hourly, for his reward will be great. We can, therefore, implicitly trust in the doctrines of the enlightened Kabbalists, when they assert that the Almighty accorded equal talents and powers to the Psalms as he did to the Thora, and that in them many names of the Most High Majesty of God and his angels, besides, many mysteries, are hidden.
Yes, dear reader, you must not doubt. Through a pious life and by a rational use of the Psalms you may obtain the grace of God, the favor of princes and magistrates and the love of your fellow-men. But the correctness of it is also established by the teachings of the Talmud and of the old wise men, who assure us, that many of our famous forefathers availed themselves of apparently supernatural means from time to time, to protect their best interests.
The truth of this I can establish by the most trustworthy witnesses; yea, I could even mention some great men, who, by a proper use of the Psalms, performed great works. Such examples are rare. Let it suffice. As for example, to cast out evil spirits, to relieve deep melancholy and to cure grievous diseases; to set free prisoners who have been unjustly imprisoned; to arrest and resist enemies, opponents, murderers, and highway robbers; to quench the fiercest fires; to resist floods of water, to defend innocence and to reveal, it, and to foster good fortune, well-being and peace in a general manner.
Read the treatise on this subject, of the excellent Rabbi Schimschon bar Abraham, in his book entitled Responsiones Raschaba. Do not, however, be discouraged for I am really endeavoring to promote your best interests and shield you from harm. If you are willing to avail yourself of the means indicated, I warn you not to attempt it in a case of extreme necessity, and when there is no other help at hand.
The ordained Psalm, for this or the other undertaking, besides the appropriate prayer, you must pray with a broken and contrite heart to God, and in addition to this, keep in mind the added holy name with its letters, which are given the wise Kabbalists. At the same time you must have your undertaking continually before your eyes. I must say to you, if you wish to console yourself with this help, that you must live in such a manner that no crime or willful sin can trouble your conscience, for it is well known, that the prayer of the ungodly is not acceptable to God.
And herewith I commit you to the protection of the Most High. Psalm 1. The holy name is called , Eel Chad , which signifies, great, strong, only God, and is taken from the four following words: Aschre , verse 1; Lo , verse 4; Jatzliach , verse 3; Vederech , verse 6. Admonition of the Translator. He can pray, read and write everything in his mother tongue; only the holy name of God and the angels that may occur in the experiment, must, under all circumstances, be written and retained in the mind in the Hebrew tongue for they must in no case be uttered , because, on the contrary, a wrong direction might otherwise easily be given to the experiment, and consequently it would lose all its holiness, worth, and efficiency.
With this pronunciation we must all be well satisfied, and, therefore, I must write all similar words and names, from the letters of which the holy names are taken, in Hebrew. In order, however, that the reader may read all similar occurring names and words in his mind and retain them, I have written all the Hebrew words with English letters together with their meaning. Psalm 2. The words, the letters of which constitute this holy name, are taken from Rageschu , verse 1; 4 Nossedu , verse 2; and Jozer , 5 verse 9. EE: Jozes. The prayer is as follows: "Let it be, Oh Schaddei!
Almighty God! Thy holy will, that the raging of the storm and the roaring of the waves may cease, and that the proud billows may be stilled. Lead us, oh, all-merciful Father, to the place of our destination in safety and in good health, for only with Thee is power and might. Thou alone canst help, and Thou wilt surely help to the honor and glory of Thy name. This Psalm is also an effectual remedy against raging headache. The direction is as follows: Write the first eight verses of this Psalm together with the holy name and appropriate prayer, upon pure parchment, and hang it upon the neck of the patient; then pray over him the Psalm with the prayer arranged for it.
Do this in humble devotion, and the sufferer will be relieved. Psalm 3. The holy name is: 6 Adon Lord , and is found in the words: Weattae verse 3; Baadi , verse 3; Hekizoti , verse 5; and Hascheini , verse 7. The prayer is as follows: Adon Lord of the world may it please thee to be my physician and helper. Heal me and relieve me from my severe headache and backache, because I can find help only with Thee, and only with Thee is counsel and action to be found.
S reads "ShDVN" rascal which is clearly an error. Psalm 4. The prayer is as follows: May it please Thee, oh, Jiheje , to prosper my ways, steps and doings.
Grant that my desire may be amply fulfilled, and let my wishes be satisfied even this day, for the sake of Thy great, mighty and praiseworthy name. Again, if you have a cause to bring before high magistrates or princes, you must pray this Psalm and the closing prayer arranged for it, seven times in succession before the rising of the Sun.
By the Translator. I must be permitted in this place to insert another caution. When it is said N. Psalm 5. Psalm 6. The prayer is as follows: Jehovah my Father, may it please Thee, for the sake of the great, mighty, holy and adorable name, Jeschajah Baal Hatschna , that is, Help is with the Lord, for he is the Lord of help, he can help, which name is contained in this Psalm, heal me from my diseases, infirmities, and from the pain of my eyes, for thine is the power and the help, and thou alone art mighty enough to help; of this I am certain, and therefore I trust in thee.
Further it is said: If a traveler encounters danger by land or sea, he shall, when there is no other help to hope for, pray this Psalm seven times, and each time with full confidence in the mighty and sure help of the Almighty, and add thereto: Jeschajah , Lord of help! Hear me for the sake of thy great and most holy name, for thine is the power and the help. Psalm 7. EE: "Al bam, and the letters must be transposed. S misreads IDNI.
