      405  170          76 405  271         76         72.


3.  Every man and every woman is a star.
     226       91     55   226   167        70 1   270.


4.  Every number is infinite; there is no difference.
     226        303    70     150   ; 610   70 120            351.
 

5.  Help me, o warrior lord of Thebes, in my unveiling before the
     120    45, 70 687        304  76 472    ,   60 50  170           28      405
    Children of men!
    307         76   95 !


6.  Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue!
      7  476   29   ,    50    299    329   ,   50    220   &  50       143 !  

7.  Behold! it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat.
     116     !  19 70  256       12     138    405 384         76                      858.


8.  The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.
      405 88      70 60 405  31 , 129 405 31    60 405   88   .


9.  Worship then the Khabs, and behold my light shed over you!
        666      455   405    88   ,  55   116       50    57    309    281    86 !


10. Let my servants be few  & secret: they shall rule the many
       44  50   412          7  17    &  299     :   420  361   241  405  101
    & the known.
    & 405    196  .


11. These are fools that men adore; both their Gods & their men
        470   206  236     410  95     280  ;  472  615   137    &   615   95
    are fools.
    206  236  .


12. Come forth, o children, under the stars, & take your fill
        135  675  ,  70   307    ,     265   405 330  ,  & 35    286    76
    of love! 
    76 111 !


13. I am above you and in you.  My ecstasy is in yours.
      10 41 84        86  55  60 86 .      50  165        70 60  346.
    My joy is to see your joy.
    50  90  70 79 70    286  90 .


14. Above, the gemmed azure is
      84   ,    405   97           219   70 
    The naked splendour of Nuit;  
     405 80         485            76 75 ;
    She bends in ecstasy to kiss  
    305 121      60 165        79 150
    The secret ardours of Hadit.  
    405 299       541         76  29   .
    The winged globe, the starry blue,  
    405   78        110  ,   405 480       43 ,
    Are mine, O Ankh-af-na-khonsu!  
    206 105 ,   70                           345!


15. Now ye shall know that the chosen priest & apostle of infinite 
       126  15 361   146     410  405 193         364    & 255        76     150      
    space is the prince-priest the Beast;
    206    70  405 769                  405  77   ;
    and in his woman called the Scarlet Woman is all power given.
    55  60  75  167          90     405    325     167      70 61  361          74.
    They shall gather my children into their fold:
    415    361   609       50  307          139  615   110 :
    they shall bring the glory of the stars into the hearts of men.
    415   361   265     405  313   76 405 330   139  405 301       76  95.


16. For he is ever a sun, and she a moon.  But to him is the winged 
      276 15 70 216    1 116, 55    305 1 230 .      17  79 55  70 405  78     
    secret flame, and to her the stooping starlight.
    299      82   ,     55  70 210 405 352          327.


17. But ye are not so chosen. 
      17    15 206 129 130     193.


18. Burn upon their brows, o splendrous serpent!
      258  206      675   338  , 70  485                409    !


19. O azure-lidded woman, bend upon them!
      70  276                  167  ,   61    206      445 !


20. The key of the rituals is in the secret word which I have given
      405   35  76  405 316    70 60 405   299       280  29     10  17       74
    unto him.
    135    55 .


21. With the God & the Adorer I am nothing: they do not see me.
      416   405   77  & 405 480       10 41      583:   415  74 129    70  45.
    They are as upon the earth; I am Heaven,
    415   206  61   206  405  606  ; 10 41        72 ,
    and there is no other God than me, and my lord Hadit. 
    55   610   70  120 675     77  451     45,   55  60   304   29.


22. Now, therefore, I am known to ye by my name Nuit, and to him by 
        126, 891      ,    10 41 196      70 15 12   50 96         75  , 55  79 55    12 
    a secret name which I will give him when at last he knoweth me.
    1 299       96   29         10 76  24     55  66       10 100  10 551          45.
    Since I am Infinite Space,and the Infinite Stars thereof,do ye
    185   10 41 150            206  ,55  405 150          330   686    ,   74 15
    also thus.
    161  466 .
    Bind nothing! Let there be no difference made among you between
    66   583    !        43  610   7  120 351              50   164           86  82 
    any one thing & any other thing; for thereby there cometh hurt.
    61  125    463   & 61  675        463  ; 276 622           610   535    220.


23. But whoso availeth in this, let him be the chief of all!
        17  211       453      60 470 , 43  55     7  405  29    76 61!


24. I am Nuit, and my word is six and fifty. 
      10 41 75 ,    55  60   280  70 150  55     41.


25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand. 
        39    ,  9  ,   215     ,      55              389.


26. Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I,
       455  471    405 449           55  102    76 405 169             125: 81      41 10,
    and what shall be the sign? So she answered him,
    55    21     361   7  405   123 ? 130 305 331             55 ,
    bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all-penetrant, 
    124         130 ,   1 137            82    76 43  , 217         ,              470          ,
    her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched 
    210 151    120         206  405 73        606  ,  & 210 445   86          218    
    for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers:
    276 111 , 55  210    145  25   129 283        405 93     377    :
    Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the
    476      220    !    55  405  123  361    7   50     165    ,   405
    consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence
    581                   76 405 244             76 284      ,    405            635
    of my body.
    76 50    86  .


27. Then the priest answered & said unto the Queen of Space, 
       451  405 364         331         & 75   135    405 166       76 206  ,
    kissing her lovely brows, and the dew of her light
    213       210 151    338  ,       55  405 15     76 210 57
    bathing his whole body in a sweet-smelling perfume of sweat: 
    466        75  116       86   60  1 313                       342       76 81   ; 
    O Nuit, continuous one of Heaven, let it be ever thus;
    70 75 , 351               125 76 72    ,      44  19 7  216  466 ;
    that men speak not of Thee as One but as None;
    410  95      166   129 76   410  61 125    17  61 175 ;
    and let them speak not of thee at all, since thou art continuous!
    55  44    450    166     129 76 410  10 61 , 185   476     210  351       !


28. None, breathed the light, faint & faery, of the stars, and two. 
    175 ,     617           405 57   , 76    &    222  , 76 405 330  ,    55  85.


29. For I am divided for love's sake, for the chance of union. 
       276 10 41 43         276 171    86  ,  276 405    124    76  186  .


30. This is the creation of the world, that the pain of division is as
       470  70 405 365        76 405 310  ,  410  405 141    76 220        70 61
    nothing, and the joy of dissolution all.
    583    ,      55  405 90  76 379             61 .


31. For these fools of men and their woes care not thou at all!
       276 470   236    76 95      55  675   141     226  129 476    10 61 !
    They feel little; what is, is balanced by weak joys;
     415  46   93    ;   21   70, 70 153          12 32        150 :
    but ye are my chosen ones. 
    17  15 206    50 193         185 .


32. Obey my prophet! follow out the ordeals of my knowledge! seek 
       87   50     449    !    212      85  405 370        76 50 193      !           90   
    me only! Then the joys of my love will redeem ye from all pain.
    45  160 !   455  405 150  76  50   111  76   259         15 316     61  141 .
    This is so:  I swear it by the vault of my body;
    470  70 130: 10 272  19 12 405 52      76 50 86  ;
    by my sacred heart and tongue; by all I can give,
    12 50   290       220     55  143   ;     12 61 10 71   24  ,
    by all I desire of ye all.
    12 61  10 284    76 15  61.


33. Then the priest fell into a deep trance or swoon, & said 
       455  405   364    71   139  1 94      325    270 256 ,      & 75   
    unto the Queen of Heaven; Write unto us the ordeals;
    135  405    166   76    72    ;      230   135  76 405    370    ;
    write unto us the rituals; write unto us the law!
    230   135  76  405  316    ;    230   135  76 405   37 !


34. But she said: the ordeals I write not: the rituals 
    17     305 75  :   405 370     10 230     129: 405 316     
    shall be half known and half concealed: the Law is for all.
    361   7    42   196        55  42   245             : 405 37  70 276 61 .


35. This that thou writest is the threefold book of Law. 
       470  410  476  299       70  405   720        162   76    37 .


36. My scribe Ankh-af-na-khonsu, the priest of the princes, shall 
      50   297    345                           , 405 364      76  405 465      , 361   
    not in one letter change this book; but lest there be folly,
    129 60 125 258       67       470  162 ;   17  104  610      7  145  ,
    he shall comment thereupon by the wisdom of Ra-Hoor-Khuit.
    10 361   234             816            12 405 190       76          596          .
  

37. Also the mantras and spells; the obeah and the wanga; the work of
       161  405 361          55  265   ; 405    83        55  405 61   ;     405 296    76
    the wand and the work of the sword; these he shall learn and teach. 
    405 61        55  405 296  76 405   340  ; 470       10 361   286      55  23   .


38. He must teach; but he may make severe the ordeals. 
        10 115  23   ;     17  10 51       66   281        405     370    .


39. The word of the Law is QELHMA. 
       405 280  76 405    37  70  481       .
  

40. Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close
       81  141   76     564             76   74 120 329 ,   16 10 190  17  185
    into the word.
    139  405   280
    For there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover,
    276 610     206 670          610   273         405 269        55  405    311
    and the man of Earth.
    55   405   91    76 606  .
    Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
    76 21       476  55   361    7   405   116   76 405    37 .


41. The word of Sin is Restriction.  O man! refuse not thy wife,
       405 280  76  120 70 643        .      70 91!    282     129  410   27  , 
    if she will! O lover, if thou wilt, depart!
    16 305 75  ! 70 311 , 16 476  55  ,    299   !
    There is no bond that can unite the divided but love: 
     610   70 120 126 410      71  80     405 43           17  111 : 
    all else is a curse. Accursed! Accursed be it to the aeons! Hell. 
    61  100  70 1 291  . 316     !        316           7  19 79 405 186  !    70  .


42. Let it be that state of manyhood bound and loathing.

    So with thy all; thou hast no right but to do thy will.
    130 416 410 61 ; 476  75     120 227  17  79 74  410  76  .


43. Do that, and no other shall say nay. 
       74 410 , 55  120 675     361   71     61 .


44. For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from 
      276 291    76  , 196                76 501    ,     269       316  
    the lust of result, is every way perfect.
    405 105  76 310   , 70 226      17  325    .


45. The Perfect and the Perfect are one Perfect and not two;
      405 325          55  405 325       206 125   325         55  129 85 ;
    nay, are none!
    61 , 206     175 !


46. Nothing is a secret key of this law.  Sixty-one the Jews 
      583     70    1 299      35  76 470   37 .  294             405 81   
    call it; I call it eight, eighty, four hundred & eighteen.
    81  19; 10 81 19 32   , 42    ,      282  274         &     92      .


47. But they have the half: unite by thine art so that all disappear. 
        17  415  17      405 42  : 80     12  465   210 130 410  61      441      .
 

48. My prophet is a fool with his one, one, one; are not they the Ox ,
       50 449        70 1 176  416  75  125, 125, 125;    206 129 415  405 150,
    and none by the Book?
    55  175      12 405 192 ?


49. Abrogate are all rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs.
       291          206 61  316    ,  61  370    ,     61  340   55  183  .
    Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the
    596                  406      85    75  75     60 405 75    10 405
    Equinox of the Gods; and let Asar be with Isa,
    321         76 405 137 ;  55  44     262  7  416     71 ,
    who also are one.  But they are not of me.
    81  161     206 125.  17  415     206 129 76 45.
    Let Asar be the adorant, Isa the sufferer; Hoor in his  
    44  262     7  405 335    ,     71  405 488     ;     345  60 75  
    secret name and splendour is the Lord initiating.
    299       96       55  485           70 405 304      162       .


50. There is a word to say about the Hierophantic task.  Behold! 
       610   70 1   280  79 71      88    405 465                    90  .  116   ! 
    there are three ordeals in one, and it may be given
    610   206  610      370     60    125, 55  19 51      7  74
    in three ways. The gross must pass through fire;
    60 610     77  .   405 393      115    201  684         221 ;
    let the fine be tried in intellect, and the lofty chosen
    44  405 71   7  228     60 168            55  405 125      193
    ones in the highest.  Thus ye have star & star,  
    185  60    405 97     .    465  15    17   270    & 270 ,    
    system & system; let not one know well the other!
    184             & 184 ; 44  129 125 146       71   405 675  !


51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace
      610   206    282  78      79 125 177       ; 405 376   76 410  177
    is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there;
    70 76 311    55  107 ;   181   84        & 356    206     610  ;
    and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death. 
    55  61   406  244   ;     176         & 335 , 55  405 182             76 410  .  
    Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand 
    44  55  269     60 265  270 10 185    405 282  78     ; 44  55      124   
    on the floor of the palace.  Will he not sink? Amn.  Ho! warrior,
    120 405 376  76 405 177   .     76   15 129 140 ?  91 .      75! 687    ,
    if thy servant sink? But there are means and means.
    16 410 331       140 ?  17  610      206 156       55  156  .
	Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel;
    7  187       891           : 329   15 61  60 71        397    ;
    eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam!
    15  218  210       55  284    85        131       55  131   410     117 ! 
    Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, where
    161 , 35      286  76   55   76   76 111  61  15 76  , 66          , 221
    and with whom ye will! But always unto me.
    55  416     121     15 76  ! 17  108        135   45.
 

52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying:
       16 470 17 129 228   ; 16 15 276            405 527                  , 134   :
    They are one; or saying, They are many;
    415  206   129; 270 134  ,     415  206 101 ;
    if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful 
    16 405 256    7  129  216  135  45:     455  199        405    261     
    judgements of Ra Hoor Khuit!
    208               76 201  345     50 !


53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, 
      470   361  483                 405 310  , 405 93     310     50     344 , 
    my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss.
    50 220      & 50     143   , 135  121      10 119  470  150 .
    Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes,
    161 , 70 297      55  449    ,       484      476  7   76 405    465    ,
    it shall not assuage thee nor absolve thee.
    19 361   129 136          410  320 174          410 .
    But ecstasy be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me!
    17  165           7  465    55  90  76 606     : 216     79 45!   79 45!


54. Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! thou, 
       67        129 61 58        61 405 114   76 1 258   ; 276 116       ! 476 , 
    o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein.

55. The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them. 
        405 52    76 410 172    ,   15 361   116         445 .


56. Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no 
        199    55      129 316  405 75  , 320   316  405    76  ; 276 316  120 
    expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred
    208            146       535    410  52   .      47 ! 61  340      206 290
    and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little;
    55    61  530          220 ; 72   160     410  415  389               1  93    ;
    solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked.
    171   405 285    42   76 405 251           , 47    405   209            125       .
    But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all,
    17  476   75     61  60 405 256   57       55  175      484        129 61
    in the dark.
    60 40  225 .


57. Invoke me under my stars! Love is the law, love under will.
       161       45 265       50 330    ! 111  60 405 37 , 111      265   76  .
    Nor let the fools mistake love; for there are love and love.
    320 44  405 236   145           111 ; 276 610   211 111      55  111 .
    There is the dove, and there is the serpent.  Choose ye well! 
    610   70 405   85  ,     55  610   70 405 409    .        213    15    71  ! 
    He, my prophet, hath chosen, knowing the law of the fortress, 
    15, 50   449    ,       406  193   , 209           405 37  76  405      610     , 
    and the great mystery of the House of God. All these old letters 
    55  405 218        334       76 405 146       76 77 . 61  470   104        318     
    of my Book are aright; but (Tzaddi) is not the Star.  This also 
    76 50 162    206    228   ; 17      90      70 129 405   270 .  470  161  
    is secret; my prophet shall reveal it to the wise. 
    70 299     ; 50 449          361   247      19 79 405 81  .


58. I give unimaginable joys on earth: certainty, not faith, while 
       10 24  208                  150  120 606  : 354          , 129 417    56

    nor do I demand aught in sacrifice. 
    320 74 10 104          24    60   372      .


59. My incense is of resinous woods & gums; and there is no blood 
       50 240         70 76 461        210       & 109 ;    55  610   70 120     176  
    therein: because of my hair the trees of Eternity.
    670    : 99              76 50 216  405    279   76       298     .


60. My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us.
        50 303       70 11, 61 61  615   363           81  206   76 66.
    The Five Pointed Star, with a Circle in the Middle, & the circle

    is Red.  My colour is black to the blind, but the blue & gold are 
    70 209.  50 396         70 73    79 405 96   ,   17  405 43      & 107  206
    seen of the seeing.  Also I have a secret glory for them that

    love me.
    111    45 .


61. But to love me is better than all things: if under the night stars
       17  79 111  45     70 230    451  61  523   : 16 265   405     77    330

    thou shalt come a little to lie in my bosom.  For one kiss wilt 
    476  340    131     1 93     79 45  60 50 242  .       276 125 150  55   
    thou then be willing to give all; but whoso gives one particle of

    dust shall lose all in that hour.  Ye shall gather goods and store

    60 485             & 299  ; 17  108        60 405 111  76 45,    55  130 361
    ye come to my joy.  I charge you earnestly to come before me

62. At all my meetings with you shall the priestess say --

    and her eyes shall burn with desire as
    55  210  80       361   258  416     284    61
    she stands bare and rejoicing in my secret temple --

    the hearts of all in her love-chant. 
    405 301    76    61 60 210            179.


63. Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes!

Chapter II

 

1. Nu! the hiding of Hadit.

2. Come! all ye, and learn the secret that hath not yet been

3. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the

   667,                    70 341           136  .

4. Yet she shall be known & I never. 
     24  305 361     7  196  &     10   266  .

5. Behold! the rituals of the old time are black.  Let the evil

   ones be cast away; let the good ones be purged by the prophet!

   Then shall this Knowledge go aright. 
    455  361   470  193              73    228   .

6. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the

   therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death.

7. I am the Magician and the Exorcist.  I am the axle of the wheel,

8. Who worshipped Heru-pa-kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I am

9. Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the

   sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is
   666         206 17  61  441    ;       420  201  & 206 129 ;     17  610   70
   that which remains. 
   410  29        366    .

10. O prophet! thou hast ill will to learn this writing. 
       70 449    !    476  75   70  76   79  286  470  288    .

11. I see thee hate the hand & the pen; but I am stronger. 
      10 70  410  20      405 60   &   405 135: 17  10 41      597     .

12. Because of me in Thee which thou knewest not. 
        99      76    45 60 410       29    476  155         129.

13. for why? Because thou wast the knower, and me. 
      276 21 ?    99          476     76   405 351   ,      55  45.

    291         95  55     15  445     86 416  271      !

15. For I am perfect, being Not; and my number is nine by the
      276 10 41 325    ,     70    129: 55     50 303         70 115  12 405

    of me; for there is a further secret. 
    76 45; 276 610   70   1 817     299   .

16. I am The Empress & the Hierophant.  Thus eleven, as my bride is
      10 41 405 450     &       405 435       .         466  101   ,   61 50    221   70
    eleven. 
    101   .

17. Hear me, ye people of sighing!  
      211  45,    15 270       76    141    !
     The sorrows of pain and regret  
        405 666     76 141    55      422
    Are left to the dead and the dying,  
    206 50   79 405 14      55  405    77   ,
     The folk that not know me as yet.   
     405 126  410  129 146      45 61   24 .

18. These are dead, these fellows; they feel not.  We are not for
        470   215   14  ,  610     207    ;    415  46   129.  11  206 129   276

19. Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us.  They
      70 1 77  79   51   60 1 77 ? 120! 17 405    97          206 76 66.  415

20. Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor,
       33          55  727     ,    179     259              55   255              360
    force and fire, are of us. 
    341      55  221 , 206 76 66.

21. We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in

    fear not that any God shall deny thee for this. 
    212  129 410  61       77  361   69      410  376 470 .

23. I am alone: there is no God where I am. 
      10 41    156  : 610   70 129 77 221      10 41.

24. Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my

    405 606  ,    55 10 55  405 606     206 125.

27. There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these
        610   70 218    263         60 45; 276 81  474  129 389                  470

30. If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops

32. Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown;
