The First Pentacle of Saturn . – This Pent acle is of great value and ut ility for s triking te rror into t he Spirits. Wherefore, upon its being s hown to th em they submit, and kneeling upon the earth before it, they obey. Editor’s Note–. The Hebrew Letters within the square are the four great Names of God w hich a re written with four lette–rs Y: HVH, Yod, He, Vau, He; ADNI , Adonai; IIAI, Yiai (this Name has the same Numerical value in Hebrew as the Name EL); and AHIH, Eheieh. Th e Hebrew versicle which surrounds it is from Psa lm lxxii 9 ; " The Ethiopians shall kneel before Him, His enemies shall lick the dust." Figure 12. The Second P entacle o f Saturn . – Th is Penta cle is of grea t value against adversaries; and of especial use in repressing the pride of the Spirits. Editor’s Note .– This is the celebrated S A T O R A R E P O T E N E T O P E R A R O T A S, the most perfect existing form of double acrostic, as far as the arrangement of the letters is concerned; it is repeatedly mentioned in the records of medieval Ma gic; and, save to very few, its derivation from the present Pentacle ha s been unknown. It will be seen at a gla nce th at it is a square of five, giving twenty-five letters, which, adde d to the unity, g ives twenty-Six, the numeric al v alue of I HVH. The Hebrew versicle sur- rounding it is taken from Psalm lxxii 8, "His dominion shall be also from the one sea to th e o ther, and f rom the flood unto the world’s e nd. This passage cons ists also of exactly twenty-five letters, and its total numerical value (considering final letters with increased numbers), a dded to that of the Name Elohim, is exactly equal to the total numerical value of the twenty-five letters in the Square. Page 60 --------------------------------------- 3 The Holy Pentacles Figures 13 and 14. Figure 13. The Third Pentacle of Saturn . – This should be made w ithin the Ma gical Circle, and it is good for use at nig ht when thou invokest the Spirits o f the nature of Saturn. Editor’s Note. – The ch aracters at the ends of the r ays of the Mystic Wheel are Magical Characters of Sat urn. Surrounding it are the Names of the Angels: Omeliel, Anachiel, Arauchiah, and Anazachia, written in Hebrew. Figure 14. The Fourth Pentacle of Saturn . – This Pentacle serveth principally for executing all the experiments and operations of ruin, destruction, and death. And when it is made in full perfection, it ser veth also for those Spirits which br ing news, when thou invokest them from the side of the South. Editor’s Note–. The Hebrew words around the sides of the triangle are from Deut. vi.4:– "Hear, O Israel, IHVH ALHINVH is IHVH ACHD." The surrounding versicle is from Psalm cix. 18:– "As he clothed himself w ith cursing like as with a garment, so let it come u nto his bowels like water, and li ke o il into his bones." In the center of the Pentacle is the mystic letter Yod. Figure 15. The Fifth Pentacle of Saturn . – This Pentacle defendeth those who invoke the Spirits of Sat urn d ur ing the n ig ht; an d chaseth away the Sp irits whi ch guard treasures. Editor ’s Note–. T he Hebrew l etter s in the a ngles of the C ross are t hose of t he Name IHVH. Those in the Angles of the Square form ALVH, Eloah. Round the four sides of the Square are the Names of the An–ge Alsr:ehanah, Rakhaniel, Roelhaiphar, and Noaphiel. The versicle is: "A Great God, a Mighty, and a Terr–i Dble."eut x. 17. Page 61 --------------------------------------- 4 The Key of Solomon Figures 15 and 16. Figure 16. The Sixth Pentacle of Saturn . – Around this Pentacle is each Name symbolized as it should be. The person against whom thou shalt pronounce it shall be obsessed by Demons. Editor’s Note–. It is formed from Mystical Characters of Saturn. Around it is writ- ten in Hebrew: "S et thou a wicked one to be ruler over him, and let Satan stand at his right hand." Figure 17. The Seventh and Last Pentacle of Saturn . – This Pentacle is fit for exciting ear thquakes, seeing that the power of each order of Angels herein invoked is sufficient to make the whole Universe tremble. Figure 17. Page 62 --------------------------------------- 5 The Holy Pentacles Editor’s Note–. Within the Pentacle are the Names of the Nine Orders of Angels, those of six of them in ordinar y Hebrew Characters, and the remainder in the le tters which are known as "the Passing of the River."

The versicle i s from Psalm xvii–i 7 "T: hen the earth shook and trembled, the foundations of the hills also moved and were shaken, because He was wroth." Page 63 --------------------------------------- 6 The Key of Solomon JUPITER. Figures 18 and 19. Figure 18. The First Pentacle of Jupiter . – This serveth to invoke the Spirits of Jupiter, an d esp ecially those whos e Names are w ritten around the Pentac le, among whom Parasiel is the Lord and Master of Treasures, and teacheth how to become pos- sessor of places wherein they are. Edit or ’s Note–. Th is Penta cle i s comp osed o f Mystica l C ha ra cters of Jupit er. Ar oun d i t ar e the N a me s of th e Angel– Ns: e toniel , D evach iah, Tzed e qi ah, an d Para siel, written in Hebrew. Fig ure 19. T he Secon d Pen tacle of Jupiter . – This is proper for a cquirin g glor y, honors, dignities, riches, and all kinds of good, together with great tranquillity of mind; also to discover Treasures and chase away the Spirits who preside over them. It should b e writte n upon Virgin P archment, with the pen of th e swallow and the blood of the screech-owl. Editor’s Note–. In the center of the Hexagram are the letter s of the Name AHIH, Eheieh; in the upper and lower angles of the same, those of the Name AB, the Father; in the remaining an gles t hose of t he Name IH VH. I bel iev e the letters out side the Hexagram in the reentering angles to be intended for those o f the first two words of the Versicle, which is taken from Psalm cxi–i. " 3W: ealth and Riches are in his hous e, and his righteousness endureth for ever." Figure 20. The Third Pentacle of Jupiter . – Th is d efende th and protecte th those who invoke and cause the Spirits to come. When they appear show unto them this Pentacle and immediately they will obey. Editor ’s Note–. In the u pper left hand corner is the Magical Seal o f Jupite r with the letters of the Name IHVH. In the others are the Seal of the Intelligence of Jupiter, Page 64 --------------------------------------- 7 The Holy Pentacles Figures 20 and 21. and the Names Adonai and IHVH. Around it i s the Versicle from Psalm cxx–v "A. 1: Song of degrees . They that t rust in I HVH sha ll be a s Mount Zion, which ca nnot b e removed, but abidet h for ever." Figure 21. The Fourth Pentacle of Jupiter . – It serveth to acquire riches and honor, and to posses s much wealth. Its Angel i s Bariel. It should be engraved upon silver in the day and hour of Jupiter when he is in the Sign Cancer. Editor ’s Note–. Above the Magi cal Si gil is the Name IH , Iah. Below i t are t he Names of the Angels Adoniel and Bariel, the letters of the latter being arranged about a square of four compar tments. Around is the Versicle from Psalm cx–i "Wi. 3:ealth and Riches are in his house, and his righteousness endureth for ever." Figure 22. T he F ifth P entacle of Jupiter . – Th is hath great power. It serveth for assu red visions. Ja cob being armed wit h this Pentacle beheld the ladder which reached unto heaven. Editor’s Note–. The Hebrew letters within the Pentacle are taken from the five last words of th e versicle which surrounds it, ea ch of w hic h contains five letters. These are, then , recombined so as to for m certain Mystical Names. The versicle is taken from E zekiel i. 1–: "As I was amon g the captives by the river of Cheba r, the heavens were open ed, and I s aw vi sion s of Elohim." I n my opinion the versicle should only consist of the five last words thereof, when the anachronism of Jacob using a Pentacle with a sentence from Ezekiel will not longer exist. Figure 23. The Sixth Pentacle of Jupiter . – It ser veth for protec tion against all earthly dangers, by regarding it each day devoutedly and repeating the versicle which surroundeth it. "Thus shalt thou never perish." Page 65 --------------------------------------- 8 The Key of Solomon Figures 22 and 23. Editor’s Note–. The four Nam es i n the Arms of t he Cross are:- Seraph, Kerub, Ariel, and Tharsis; the four rulers of the Elements. The versicle is from Psalm xxii 16, 17:– "They pierced my hands and my feet, I may tell all my bones." Figure 24. The Seventh and last P entacle of Jupiter . – It hath great power against poverty, if thou considerest it with devotion, repeating the versicle. It serveth fur ther more to d rive a way those Spir its who guar d treasu res, an d to discover the same. Editor’s Note–. Myst ical Char acters of J upiter with the ver–s "Le: ift ing up the poor o ut of th e mire , a nd ra ising th e needy f rom the dung hill, that h e may set h im with princes, even with the princes of his peop– Ple."sa lm cxiii. 7. Figure 24. Page 66 --------------------------------------- 9 The Holy Pentacles MARS. Figures 25 and 26. Figure 25. The First P entacle of Mars . – It is proper for invokin g Spirits o f the Nature of Mars, especially those which are written in the Pentacle. Editor’s Note–. Mystical Characters of Mars, and the Names of the four Ange– ls: Madimiel, Bartzachiah, Eschiel, and Ithuriel written in Hebrew around the Pentacle. Figure 26. The Second Pentacle of Mars . – Th is Penta cle serveth with great success against all kinds of diseases, if it be applied unto the afflicted part. Editor’s Note–. The letter Hé, in the ang les of the Hexag ram. Within the same the Na mes IH VH, IH ShV H Yeheshuah (t he m ystic Hebr ew Na me for Joshua or Jesus, formed of the ordinary IHVH with the letter Sh placed therein as emblematical of the Spirit ), and Elohim. Around it is the sentence, John i–. " 4In: Him was lif e, and the life was the light of man." This may be adduced as an argument of the greater antiq- uity of the first few mystical verses of the Gospel of St. John. Figure 27. The Third Pentacle of Mars . – It is of great value for exciting war, wrath, d iscord, and hostility; also for resisting enemies, and striking terror into rebel- lious Spirits; the Names of God the All Powerful are therein expressly marked. Editor’s Note–. The Letters of the Names Eloah and Shaddai. In the Center is the great letter Vau, the signature of the Qabalistic Microprosopus. Around is the versicle from Psalm lxxvii 13–. "Who is so great a God as our Elohim?" Figure 28. The Fourth Pentacle of Mars . – It is of g reat virtu e and po wer in war, wherefore without doubt it will give thee victory. Page 67 --------------------------------------- 10 The Key of Solomon Figures 27 and 28. Editor’s Note–. In t he C enter is the gr eat Name Agla; right and left, the letters of the Name I HVH; a bove and below, EL. Round it is the vers icle from Psalm c–x. 5: "The Lord at thy right hand shall wound even Kings in the day of His Wrath." Figure 29. The Fifth Pentacle of Mars . – Write thou this P entacle upon Vir- gin Parchment, because it is terrible unto the Demons, and at its sight and aspect they will obey thee, for they cannot resist its presence. Editor’s Note–. Around the figure of the Scorpion is the word HVL. The versicle is from Psalm xci. 1–3": Thou shalt go upon the lion and added, the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet." Figure 30. The Sixth Pen tacle of Mars . – It hath so great vir tue that be ing armed th erewith, if thou art attacked by any one, thou shalt neith er be injured nor wounded when thou fightest with him, and his own weapons shall turn against him. Editor’s Note–. Around the eight points of t he radii of the Pentacle are the words "Elohim qeber, Elohim hath covered (or protected)," written in the Secret Alphabet of Mala chim, or the writing of the Angels. The versicle is from Psalm xxxv–ii."T 1he5ir: sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bow shall be broken." Figure 31. The Seventh and Last Pentacle of Mars . – w rite thou th is upon Virgin Pa rchment Pa per with the blood o f a b at, in the day and hour of Ma rs; and uncover it within the Circle, invoking the D emons Spirits of the Nature of Mars, espe- cially those which are written in the whose Names are therein written; and thou shalt immediately see ha il and tempest. Page 68 --------------------------------------- 11 The Holy Pentacles Figures 29 and 30. Editor ’s Note–. In the center of t he Pentacle are t he Divine Names, El and Yiai, wh ich h a ve the same n umer ical val ue wh en w r it ten i n H ebrew. T he L et ters i n Hebrew, and in the Secret Alphabet called the Celestial, compose the Names of Spirits. Round the Pentacle i–s: "He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. He smote their vines also, and their fig-tree–s P." salm cv. 32,33. Figure 31. Page 69 --------------------------------------- 12 The Key of Solomon THE SUN. Figures 32 and 33. Figure 32. The First Pentacle of the Sun . – The Countenance of Shaddai the Almighty, at whose aspect all creatures obe y, and the Angelic Spirits do reverence on bended knees. Editor’s Note–. This singular Pentacle contains the head of the great Angel Meth- raton or Metatron, t he vi ce-regent an d repres entative of Sh addai, who is called the Prince of Countenances, and the right-hand masculine Cherub of the Ark, as San dal- phon is the left and fe minine. O n e ither side is the Name "E l S haddai." A round is written i n Latin:– "B ehold H is fa ce and form by Whom all things were made, and Whom all creatures obey." Figure 33. The S econd Pentacle of the Sun . – This Pentacle, and the preced- ing and following, belong to the na tu re of the Sun. They serve to repress the pr ide and arrogance of the So lar Spirits, which are al together proud and ar roga nt by t heir nature. Editor ’s Note–. Mystical charac ters of t he Sun an d the Nam es of the An–ge ls: Shemeshiel, Paimoniah, Rekhodiah, and Malkhiel. Figure 34. The Third Pentacle of the Sun . – This serveth in addition (to the effects of the two preceding) to acquire Kingdom and Empire, to inflict loss, and to acquire renown and glor y, especially through the Nam e o f God , Tetr agrammat on, which therein is twelve times contained. Editor’s Note–. The Name IHVH, twelve times repeated; and a versicle somewhat similar to Daniel iv. 34:– "My Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and my dominion endureth from age to age." Page 70 --------------------------------------- 13 The Holy Pentacles Figures 34 and 35. Figure 35. The Fourth Pentacle of the Sun . – This s erveth to enable thee to see the Spirits when they appear invisible unto those who invoke them; because, when thou hast uncovered it, they will immediately appear visible. Editor’s Note–. The Names IHVH, Adonai, are written in the center in Hebrew; and round the radii in the mystical characters of the "Passing of the River." The versi- cle is from P salm xiii. 3,4: -"Lighten mi ne e yes t hat I sl eep not in d eath, l est mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him." Figure 36. The Fifth Pentacle of the Sun. – It serveth to invoke those Spirits who can transpor t thee from one place unto another, over a long distance and in short time. Editor’s Note–. Characters in the "Passing of the River" Alphabet, forming Spirit’s Names. The Versicle is from Psalm xci. 11, 12:– "He shall give His Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands." Figure 37. The Sixth Pentacle of the Sun . – It serveth excellently for the oper- ation of invisibility, when correctly made. Editor’s Note–. In the center is the Mystical letter Yod, in the Celestial Al phabet. The th ree lette rs in the "Passing o f th e Riv er" writing , in th e Angles of the tr iangle, form the great Name Shaddai. The words in the same characters round its t hree sides are, in my opinion, from Genesis i.– 1 "I: n th e b eginning the E lohim created, etc."; but the characters are sadly mangled in the MSS. The versicle is from Psalms lxix. 23, and cxxxv. 16–: "L et their eyes be da rkened that they see not; and make their l oins continually to shake. They have eyes and see not." Page 71 --------------------------------------- 14 The Key of Solomon Figures 36 and 37. Figure 38. The Seventh and Last Pentacle of the Sun . – If any be by chance impris oned or deta ine d in fetters of iron, at th e pr es ence o f th is Penta cle, w hich should b e engraved in Gold o n the day and h our of the Sun, he will be immediately delivered and set at liberty. Editor’s Note–. On the Arms of the Cross are written the Names of Chasan, Angel of Air ; Ar el, An gel of Fire; P horlakh, An gel of E arth; an d Taliahad, An gel of water. Between the four Arms of the Cross are written the names of the Four Rulers of the Elemen ts; Ariel, Se raph, Tharshis, and Cherub. T he versicle i s from Psalm cxvi. 16, 17:– "T hou hast b roken my bonds in sun der. I wi ll of fer unto thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the Name of IHVH." Figure 38. Page 72 --------------------------------------- 15 The Holy Pentacles VENUS. Figures 39 and 40. Figure 39 . The First Pentacle of Venus . – Th is and those following serve to control the Spirits of Venus, and especially those herein written. Ed itor ’s Note–.

Editor ’s Note–. T he l etters r ound and wi thin the P entac le form t he Na mes of Spirits of Venus. The versicle is from Canticles viii 6:-"Place me as a signet upon thine heart, as a signet upon thine arm, for love is strong as death." Figure 41. The Third Pentacle o f Venus . – This, if it be only show n unto any person, serveth to attract love. Its Angel Monachiel should be invoked in the day and hour of Venus, at one o’clock or at eight. Edit or ’s Note–. Th e f ollow ing Names are w r itte n w ithin the Fig–u IHre: VH, Adon ai, Ruach , Achides, Aegalm iel, Monach iel, an d Degaliel. The vers icle i s from Genesis i. 28:– "And the Elohim blessed them, and the Elohim said unto them, Be ye fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the ear th, and subdue it." Figure 42. The Fourth Pentacle of Venus . – It is of great power, since it com- pels the S pirits of Venus to obey, and to force on the instant any person thou wishest to come unto thee. Editor’s Note–. At the fou r Angles of the Figure are the four letters of the Na me IHVH. The other letters form the Names of Spirits of Venus, e– .Sgc.:hii, Eli, Ayib, Page 73 --------------------------------------- 16 The Key of Solomon Figures 41 and 42. etc. The versicle is from Genesis i i. 23, – "T24:his is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. And they two were one flesh." Figure 43. The Fifth and L ast Pentacle of Venus . – When it is only showed unto any person soever, it inciteth and exciteth wonderfully unto Love. Editor’s Note–. Around the central Square are the Names E lohim, El Gebil, and two ot her Names wh ich I c a nnot d eci pher, an d have, t herefore, gi ven them as they stand.

T he Secon d Pen tacle o f Mercu ry . – Th e Spirits h erein written serve t o bring to ef f ect an d to gr a nt t hings which ar e contrar y un to t he order of Na ture; and which are not contained under any other head. They easily give answer, but they can with difficulty be seen . Editor’s Note–. The Letters form the Names of Belö and other Spirits. Figure 46. The Third Pentacle of Mercury . – This and the following serve to invoke the Spirits subject unto Mercur y; and especially thos e who a re w ritten in this Pentacle. Editor’s Note–. Mystical C haracters of Mercur y, an d the Names of t he Angels: Kokaviel, Gheoriah, Savaniah, and Chokmahiel. Fig ure 4 7. T he Fourt h Pentac le of Mer cury . – Th is is f ur ther pr op er to acquire the understanding and Knowledge of all things created, and to se ek out and penetrate into hidden things; and to command those Spirits which are called Allatori to perform embassies. They obey very readily. Editor’s Note–. In the center is the Name of God, EL The Hebrew letters inscribed about the dodecagram make the sentence, "IHVH, fix Thou the Volatile, and let there be unto the void restriction." Th e versicle– is " W: isdom and virtue are i n his house, and the Knowledge of all things remaineth with him for ever." Page 75 --------------------------------------- 18 The Key of Solomon Figures 46 and 47. Figure 48. The Fifth and Last Pentacle of Mercury . – This commandeth the Spirits of Mercur y, and serveth to open d oors in wh atever way they may be c losed , and nothing it may encounter can resist it.

The Second Pentacle of the Moon . – This serveth against all perils and da ngers by wat er, and i f i t should chance that the Sp ir its of t he Moon shoul d excite and cause g reat rain and exceed ing tempests about the Circle, in order to aston- ish and terrify thee; on show ing unto them this Pentacle, it will all speedily cease. Editor’s Note–. A handpointing to the Name El, and to that of the Angel Abariel. The versicle is from Psa lm lvi. 1–1 "I: n Elohim ha ve I put my trust, I w ill not fe ar, what can man do unto m e?" Figure 51 .
