55. Thou shalt obtain the order & value of the English Alphabet; thou shalt find new symbols to attribute them unto.


Bethsheba Comment:
Besides the usual order of the Hebrew alephbet, there is also a secret Priestly order which was used to arrange the Book of Genesis. If we arrange the Roman Alphabet according to the Priestly order then the letters (and digraphs) proceed in this order:

The Old Comment
done. See Liber Trigrammaton, Comment.

The New Comment
The attribution in Liber Trigrammaton is good theoretically; but no Qabalah of merit has arisen therefrom. I am inclined to look further into the question of Sanskrit Roots, and into the Enochian Records, in order to put this matter in more polished shape.

[ P ]
Now then a giant arose, of terrible strength; and asserted the Spirit in a secret rite.
As to B as K is to (hard) G. Bursting of a bud as against that of a fruit.



[ A ]
And the Master of the Temple balancing all things arose; his stature was above the Heaven and below Earth and Hell.
Open unmodulated breath. (ah.)



[ J ]
Against him the Brothers of the Left-hand Path, confusing the symbols.
They concealed their horror [in this symbol]; for in truth they were

.
J Like soft G.



[ W ]
The master flamed forth as a star and set a guard of Water in every Abyss.
When distinct from U represents the operation of choice. 'U" does this to some extent. (Will, word, way.)



[ O ]
Also certain secret ones concealed the Light of Purity in themselves, protecting it from the Persecutions.
The breath concentrated and directed. As to I as magic is to mysticism.



[ G ]
Likewise also did certain sons and daughters of Hermes and of Aphrodite, more openly.
(hard) Opening as if to devour. (Soft?)

An irritated or excited form of S, emphasizing elements of anger and alarm.

[ F ]
Now did the Horror of Time pervert all things, hiding the Purity with a loathsome thing, a thing unnameable.
Compound of P & H.

Yea, and there arose sensualists upon the firmament, as a foul stain of storm upon the sky.
Devence, warning, etc.


[ M ]
And the Black Brothers raised their heads; yea, they unveiled themselves without shame or fear.
The Will to Die.



[ N ]
Also there rose up a soul of filth and of weakness, and it corrupted all the rule of the Tao.
The vibration which includes Life and Death as complementary Curves.



[ E ]
Then only was Heaven established to bear sway; for only in the lowest corruption is form manifest.
Softened, but otherwise unmodulated breath.



[ R ]
Also did Heaven manifest in violent light,
Continuous vibration, like L but active.



[ Q ]
And in soft light.
Combines K + U.



[ V ]
Then were the waters gathered together from the heaven,
Conscious male will. Manhood, strength, truth, righteousness, immortality, integrity.



[ K ]
Opening as if startled.
And a crust of earth concealed the core of flame.



[ D ]
Around the globe gathered the wide air,
The paternal vibration.



[ U ]
Like O with added refinement and a tinge of melancholy. O is completely self-confident. (Vulva).
And men began to light fires upon the earth.



Therefore was the end of it sorrow; yet in that sorrow a sixfold star of glory whereby they might see to return unto the stainless Abode; yea, unto the Stainless Abode.
