Book of Saphah Aribania’hiayaustoyi, Ho’ed


1. Now am I strong in Thee, O Jehovih. Thy bow in the firmament encompasseth me on
all sides. The follies of earth have turned mine eyes up toward thy holy place.

2. I have beholden Thine enemies bowed down. The king and the mighty man of valor
with the two-edged sword are hid away in a dark corner. There is no light for them.
Sweet-scented flowers hast Thou grown up in the way of him who will not look upward;

but a serpent cometh upon him and he crieth out against the vanities of the earth.

3. In the far-off corners of the world hast Thou sown the seed of evil and death, and the
man of darkness hurrieth thither; but Thy glories he will not behold. He buildeth his
foundation in perishable things. But the hope of the righteous man lighteth up the inner
chamber. He beholdeth Thy judgment seat. He seeketh Thee in all good things and
durable; he glorifieth Thee in Thy works.

4. I will turn away from my house and my lands and look upward all my days. Yea, the
fruits of the earth shall be my servants; my crown shall be woven by Thy hands.

5. My heart pointeth up toward Thy kingdom; but the heart of the man of darkness is
downward to things that perish? Thou hast set Eon (Aries or Te) in the midst, and he shall
judge the living and the dead.

6. Thou hast made me above the diamond and above all precious stones; but the man
of darkness goeth after these. Thy children he careth not for; he seeth not. Verily, will
I run quickly to them and lift them up. They shall be gems for my raiment; they
shall become a glory in Thy sight. Yea, I will turn their eyes up toward Thy holy place.

7. Before them will I set up Gau, and the magnitude and glory of Thy worlds shall
entrance them.

8. Thy unseen hand shall become seen, and my brothers and sisters shall read the diadems
in Thy firmament. Thine hand hath quickened my eyes to see and mine ears to hear Thee,
O Thou Life of my life!

9. My understanding cometh out of Thy tablet (book). Its pages are graven with the sun,
moon and stars. Yea, all things proclaim the words Thou hast written. None can
counterfeit Thy handiwork. From Thy tablet will I read from the rising of the sun till the
going down thereof.

10. My hands shall be skilled with tools to do Thy labor. Fabrics will I weave, and my
house shall be built within the square of Thy compass, for it shall be righteous work. My
eye shall look toward Thy dwelling-place. I know Thy sight is upon me. I will be joyful
before Thee, my Father!

11. To none other will I bow myself in supplication and worship. Before Thee will I labor
for peace on all occasions.

12. My hand will I uplift in Thy behalf, and yet no man shall feel the weight of mine arm
upon him. By Thy crescent am I sworn unto Thee. By the seven stars and by the sun
which is in the midst of the firmament and is the glory thereof, and by the moon, have I

13. Before Rea (Es, the air and ether), in Thy name have I sworn. I have lifted up my
voice. I will have no diadem but that that is woven by Thee!

14. I will sing Thee new songs every day, and find new words of praise for Thy glories.
My trials shall be as whet-stones and a hewing-ax. My talents shall increase in wisdom
and in whatsoever way Thou leadest me for my own good.

15. Before Thy sacred altar will I come, knowing Thy angels will come also. Yea, they
shall teach me thy decrees.

16. Thy gifts shall be my gifts, my portion, whatsoever seemeth just in Thy sight.

17. Thy messengers shall come to me, and my house shall be their house, they shall
behold my labor; they shall admonish me wisely.

18. They shall teach me wisdom in all Thou desirest of me. The secret of my love to Thee
will I tell them, and I know they will lift me up for Thy glory. In Thy praise will I sing
forever, O Jehovih! Amen!

Plate 77. Tablet of Ancient Egypt.

Those who sat around the table for spirit communion kept their eyes riveted on the graven
characters. He who sat at the end where the crown is, was the oldest and was called
rab’bah (father). It will be observed that the invocation is more than an interpretation
of the characters, although they are all designated in the words. The rab’bah led off,
but all the circle joined in the reading of it. The gau, the plumb-line, was moved by
the spirits in answer to the questions of the rab’bah. In some countries the gypsies, who
are supposed to be descendents to ancient Egypt, still invoke spirits in this way.—-[Ed.


Plate 78. TABLET OF HY’YI.

These Tablets were engraved on inlaid tables, called family altars, around
which the family sat for spirit communion and prayer. The father led in repeating
the invocation, and the wife and children spoke in concert. After the Israelites
left Egypt, the graven tablets were abolished, but invocation at the family table
was continued, and is even to this day amongst some of the Jews (so-called).–[Ed.
Mithra the first was about 4,000 years before kosmon.
Mithra the second was about 2,000 years before Kosmon.
Invocation readeth:

1. Mithra said: Ye that invoke Me, the Swift, Shining, with sword uplifted. Invoke me on
the Tablet of the sun, and the world, and the crown, high raised. Bow down low and say:

2. Behold, the rose, deep rooted in the earth. Jehovih riseth in majesty of All Light.
His colors no man maketh, nor knoweth any man the cause. This subtle perfume,
whence cometh it, and whither goeth it? What power fashioneth it, and propelleth it?

3. O Thou, unseen Om! Is my spirit like perfume? Whence cometh it, and whither goeth
it? Give me of Thy Mithra, O Om!

4. Make my heart look upward to Thee, Thou all Pure, Heavenly! Wife, and Spouse and
Mother! Thou that cometh, I adore Thee!

5. The corporeal world hast Thou, O Jehovih, placed in the midst of the lowest places,
bringing forth. Bind my soul not to it, Thou All Going-forth.

6. My heart no longer looketh downward; my corporeal passions have I subdued. Yea,
even the diamond binds me not, the highest shining corporeal thing.

7. Thou, O Corporeal Sun, burning and full of flame, that bringest forth the corporeal,
growing harvests, hear me proclaim the All Eye that createth, making the souls of men.
Thou, O Corporeal Sun, that makest of the things that are made, what a glory is thine! But
far off, and nearer than Thou art, O Sun, is Jehovih, Who createth without things that are
made, the All First Creator. He goeth forth, Jehovih. He cometh Om, the Bride and
Mother, nursing with full breasts.

8. O thou Moon, hear my upward soul aspiring above all corporeal things! Thou, my
Love and Majestic and ruler of waters and winds, I adore Thee. But a greater, the All
Great Om, fed thee. From her breasts wert Thou, O moon, high upraised. Eolin, the
Mighty, touched Thee with his little finger and Thou hast sped on. Come Thou to me, O
Om, spouse of the Seen and Unseen.

9. O ye Stars, full of shining in the high heavens. Who can measure your far-off places?
Who can see your great corporeal majesty? O what a glory is yours, thrown in the high
heavens! Thither, far, the soul of my forefathers roam full of praise and prayer. Make me
all pure, O Thou Om, that I may ascend.

10. Send forth Thy Crown, O Eolin, Creator of all moving things. O Thou
Incomprehensible and full of glory! Make me oblivious to all corporeal things, and fill me
with Thy going-forth forever.

11. Make me to look not backward nor to myself, but to behold Thee, O Jehovih, and Thy
Lords and Thy Gods, strong in majesty and spirit high-soaring, forever! Amen!
