present, and gaue Authority to Carmara, to order the whole Heptarchicall Reuelation; so,
at the Conclusion, they appeared agayn and Raphael with them; and Michael concluded
the second boke (of this particular Reuelation Heptarchicall,) with these words following:
Mercifull is our God, and Glorious is his Name: which Chuseth his Creatures, according
to his owne secret Iudgment: This Art is the first part of a Threefold Art, Joyning Man,

D - Now Michael thrust out his right arme, with the sworde. And bad the Skryer to loke.
Then the Sword did seame to cleave in two. And a great fyre flamed out of it vehemently.
Then he tok a Ring out of the flame of his sworde, and gave it to Uriel, and sayde, The
strength of God is unspeakable. Praysed be God for euer, and euer: D - Then Uriel did
make cursy to him.

Mich. - After this sort must thy ring be: Note it. &c.

I will reveale the thys Ring: which was never revealed since the death of Salomon with
whome I was present. I was present with him, in strength, and Mercy. Lo this it is. This it              Michael, Marty 14.
is, wherewith, All Miracles and diuine works and wonders were wrowght by SALOMON.
This it is which I haue revealed unto thee. This it is, which Philosophie dreameth of. This               The Ring
it is which the Angels skarse know. This it is: and blessed be his name: yea his name be
blessed for euer. &c.

D - Then he layd the Ring down uppon the Table: and sayd, Note.

D - I noted the manner of the Ring in all points.

D - After that he threw the Ring down uppon the Table and it seamed to fall throwgh the
Michael - So shall it do at thy Commanndement. Without this, Thow shalt do Nothing.
Blessed be his Name, that cumpasseth all things. Wonders are in him, and his Name is                   Nothing to be done
wonderfull. His Name worketh wonders, from Generation, to Generation:                                         without the Ring.

Mich - Note - D Then he browght-in the seale, which he shewed the other day: And
opened his Sword: and bad the Skryer, Reade: and he Red, EMETH - D - Then the
Sworde cloased up againe: and Michael sayd - This I do open unto thee; bycause, Thow                  Sigillum Aemeth.
Marvayldst at Sigillum Dei, This is the Name of the seale: which be blessed for euer. This
is the seale self. This is holy: This is pure. This is for euer. Amen.

As Truely, as I was with Salomon, So truely will I be with thee. &c. I was with Salomon,
in all his works, and wonders.

Use me, in the Name of God, for all occasions.                                                                                          1582.

Cap. 3.

Some Remembrances of the furniture and Circumstances necessary in the
Exercise Heptarchicall.

First cast thy eye unto the Generall Prince, Governor or Angell that is Principall in
this world. Then place my name whome thow hast allready: Than the Name of him,                   King Carmara in the

thow mayst use to Gods glory. for euery one of them, shall minister to thy                                     Nouemb.17.

Moreover whan thow workest, thy feete must be placed uppon these Tablets, which
thow seest wrytten last, comprehending 42 letters and Names. But with this
Consideration: that the first Character (which is the first of the 7, in thy former                              The Table

commannded to haue, and use.

Last of all the Ryng: which was appointed thee: with the Lamine comprehending the
forme of thy own name: which is to be made in perfect Gold: as is afforesayd.

Leave oute the Bees of the 7 names of the 7 kings, and 7 Princis And place them in a
Table diuided by 12 and 7, The 7 spaces being uppermost. And therin write in the
upper lyne, the letters of the king, with the letters of his Prince following next after
his name. And so of the Six other, and theyr Princis. And read them on the right
hand, from the upper part to the lowest. And thow shalt fynde, then, the Composition
of this Table.

Therin, they are all comprehendedi saving certayne letters, :which are not to be putin
here: By reason that the Kings & Princis do spring from God: And Not God from

the Kings and Princis. Which excellency is comprehended: and is allso manifest, in
that Third and fowrth Number.

Rownd abowte the sides [of this square Table] is every letter of the 14 Names, of the
7 kings and princis.

Hereafter, Shall you perceiue, that the Glory of this Table surmownteth the Glory of
the Sonne. All things els that appertayne unto it, are all ready prescribed by yor
former Instruction.

God is the begynning of all things, but not after One soft: Nor to euery one alike. But
it is Three manner of works with his Name.

           • The one, in respect of Dignification
           • The Second, in respect of Conciliation
           • The Third, in respect of an ende, and determined Operation.

Now Sir, to what ende wold you weare yor Character? &c. But how do I teach? The                    Aprilis 29.
Character is an Instrument appliable Onely to dignification. But there is no                                   1583: dignification.
Dignification (Syr) but that which doth procede, and hath his perfect Composition
Centrally, in the Square Number of 3 and 4. The Centre wherof shall be equall to the
greatest. Hereby you may gather, Not onely to what ende, the Blessed Character
(wherewith thow shalt be dignified) is Prepared: But allso the Nature of all other

To the Second - D - Conciliation, you meane.

Il - The Table is an Instrument of Conciliation. And so are the other 7 Characters,
which you call by the Name of Tables:                                                                                                     Conciliation

Squared out into the forme of Armes: which are propre to euery King and Prince,
according to theyr order.

Now to the last - D - As concerning the ende & determyned Operation - Il - It onely
consisteth in the Mercy of God, & the Characters of these* bokes. &c.

Set downe the Kings, and theyr Princis, in a Table, as thow Knowest them: with
theyr letters backward (excepting theyr Bees) from the right hand to the left. Let
Bobogel be the first, and Bornogo his Prince. &c.

D - Note, here, it may
appere that Butmono
is Prince to Bynepor,
and Blisdon prince to
King Bnaspol.
Michael - I will shew thee, in the mighty hand and strength of God, what his Michael, 1582, Marty
Mysteries are: The true Circle of his Æternitie: comprehending all Vertue: The
whole and Sacred Trinitie: Oh holy be he: Oh Holy be he: Oh holy be he. 19.
D - Uriel answered, Amen.
Mich - Now, what wilt thow? - D - I wold full fayne procede according to the Matter
in hand.
Mich - Diuide this owtward Circle into 40 equall partes: whose greatest numbers are
4. See thow do it presently - D: I did so. diuiding it first into 4; and then every of
them, into 10.
D - he called one by name Semiel. One came in, and kneled down: and great fyre,
came out of his mowth, Michael sayd, To him are the Mysteries of these Tables
known. Michael sayd, Semiel, (againe) and by & by he annexed, O God thow hast
sayde, and thow liuest for euer. &c. Semiel stode up and flaming fyre cam out of his
mowth, and than he saide, as followeth.
Semiel - Mighty Lord, what woldst thow with the Tables?
Michael - It is the will of God, thow fatch them hither.
Sem - I am his Tables. Behold, these are his Tables, Lo where they are.
There cam-in 40 white Creatures, all in white Silk long robes; And they like
Children. And all they, falling on their knees, sayde:
Thow onely, art Holy among the Highest: O God, thy Name be blessed for euer.
D - Michael stode up out of his Chayre: and by & by, All his leggs to be like two
great Pillers of Brasse: & he as high, as half way to heven. And by and by, his
Sworde was all on fyre: And he stroke or drew his sword over all these 40 their heds.
The Earth quaked. And the 40 fell downe. And Michael called Semiel with a
Thundring voyce: and sayde, Declare the Mysteries of the liuing God: our God: of
One that liueth for euer.
Michael, 1582, Marty
Sem - I am ready.
D - Michael stroke ouer them with his sword: and they all fell downe (and Uriel
allso) on his knees. And commonly at the striking with the sworde, flaming fyre, like
lightening, did flash with all.
Michael - Note: Here is a Mysterie.
D - Then stept furth, One of the 40, from the rest: & opened his breast, which was
covered with Sylk, and there appeared a great              all of Gold.

Michael - Note the number - D - over the T, stode the Number of 4, on this fashion:

D - The 40, all, cryed: Yt liueth, and Multiplyeth for euer: Blessed be his Name.
D - That Creature did shut up his bosome, and vanished away like a fyre.
Michael - Place that, in the first place: It is the Name of God.
D - Then there seamed a great Clap of thunder to be.
And so furth: And note that the whole Second boke is Nothing els but the
Mysteries most Mervaylous of Sigillum Dei: otherwise called Sigillum
AEmeth. wherof here I did but leave a little admonishement. Note farder,
Almost all the Third boke, was of the 7 Ensignes of Creation. wherof
mention was here before made.
D - The Chayre was browght-in againe: and I axed what it ment?
Uriel - This is a Seal of perfection: from which, Things shalbe shewed unto thee,
which thow hast long desyred.
D - Than was a square Table browght into the Stone. and I demanded, what that
Table betokened.
Uriel - A Mysterie not yet to be knowne. These two shall remayne in the stone, to the
sight of all undefyled Creatures.
You must use a fowre-square Table; Two Cubits square. whereuppon must be set
Sigillum Dei: &c. [alr Diuinitatis?]
This Seale must not be loked uppon, without great Reverence and devotion. This
Seale is to be made of perfect wax.
This Seale must be , ynches square [D: or diameter.] The rowndness must be 27
ynches, and somwhat More. The thiknes of it must be, an ynch, and a half quarter.
And a figure of a Crosse, must be on the backside of it, made thus:

The Table is to be made of swete wood: & of two Cubits high: with 4 fete with 4 of
the former seales under the 4 feete. Under the Table did seame to be layde red sylk
two yards square. And over the Seale, did seame likewise red Silk to lye fowrsquare:
broader then the Table, hanging down with 4 knopps or Tassels, at the 4
Corners therof.
Uppon this uppermost red Sylk, did seme the Stone with the frame, to be set: right
over and uppon the Principall Seale: Saving that the red Sylk, was betwene the one,
& the other.
D - There appeared the first Table covered, with a cloath of Sylk changeable cullour,
Red & greene, with a white Cloth under it: all hanging very low.
