The First Key

I raygne over you sayeth the God of Justice in powre exalted above the firmaments of wrath: in Whose hands the Sonne is as a sword, and the Moon as a through-thrusting fire which measureth your garments in the mydst of my vestures, and trussed you together as the palms of my hands: Whose seats I garnished with the fire of gathering and beautified your garments with admiration, to whom I made a law to govern the holy ones, and delivered you a rod with the ark of knowledge. Moreover you lifted up your voyces and sware obedience and faith to him that liveth and triumpheth, whose beginning is not nor ende can not be, which shyneth as a flame in the myddst of your pallace and rayngneth amongst you as the ballance of righteousnes, and truth: Move therfore, and shew yourselves: open the Mysteries of your Creation: Be friendely unto me: for I am the servant of the same your God; the true Worshipper of the Highest.

In the first I made you stuards and placed you in seats 12 of government, giving unto every one of you powre successively over 456, the true ages of tyme, to the intent that, from your highest vessells and the Corners of your governments, you might work my powre: powring downe the fires of life and encrease, continually on the earth Thus you are become the skirts of Justice and Truth.
