Hi folks,

Does anyone have a good source for the Book of Abraham the Jew
with many pictures? (I like books with pictures)
And with accurate text translation and minimal corruption?

I will settle for good pictures for now. ;)

Published for the first time in Erfurt 1735, except for the full text of Abraham the Jew it contains also the complete Register and Keys for the understanding of the strange terms like shekel, algir or maretz and the most important of all, the book of Samuel Baruch, the teacher of Abraham the Jew!

In this book Samuel Baruch gives the instruction how to prepare the Sacred Fire of the Lord with which the children of Israel ignited sacrifices (burnt offerings) and how to artificially prepare the 12 GemStones (representing the 12 Tribes of Israel) including Urim und Thummim which were worn by the Jewish High Priest in his breastplate.

Time to brush up on my (nonexistant) Old German.
My modern German is also non-existant, and I know from studying homeopathy how hard it is to get a good English
translation of the Old German - Samual Hahnemann in the early 1800s (almost 100 years later) wrote some pretty fluorid language,
very hard to translate. (Die Organon)

this is the oil. Its in the English version.

Also you have now information that your children can or may find it. What however concerns the said Oil, will be found at the time, when the Lord collects us again in our Land. For our fathers, priests and Levites have for such a time of need prepared. For no sanctuary, so we also require no holy consecrated Oil, for the finery is taken from Israel. Yet that you might know, what this Oil is for, and whereof it is prepared, so mark;

The Ancients took a vessel of Acures or a vessel of stone, covered with Acures, and placed this on a Fire of coal which did not scorch or give flames, and put 32 shekels heavy of god Olive Oil therein, when this became hot, then they have on hand tender, bruised and rubbed Myrrh, Cinnamon, Calamus, Cassia, of each 8 shekels heavy, this they stirred amongst each other, and let it stand well muffled up, that the strength may remain together for 1/4 of an hour.

And then they took this from the Fire and allowed it to cool, and then squeezed the Balsam through a new virgin cloth and preserved it in a clean vessel.

Herewith were the Kings and Priests anointed.

Guard yourself however, that none understand how to make this ointment; he must be a Priest or from a priestly caste. Exodus 30. God the Lord has forbidden it, so none dare to fabricate this holy ointment Oil of the bridegroom, but only a priest, who used it at marriages, when two betrothed persons appeared to the Priest, so was the bridegroom anointed with this Oil together with the blessing of Jacob.

All our brethren have also received the anointing that their matrimonial state may be blessed, and they become fruitful, for we are all children of the Holy One.

This ointment Oil was prepared out of 32 shekels of Olive Oil, 12 shekels heavy Myrrh, of Aloe and Cassia, 8 shekels heavy, Exodus 20. This then the Priests preserved also in a pure and holy place. With this they anointed also the sick and blessed them, so they became often better or died. Were they not anointed before death, then the Priest, after death anointed them as well on forehead as on breast. Dear brethren, out of what the perfume consisted, you shall also know.

The ancients have also put it together. They have taken Stacte, Onycha, Galbanum and Frankincense amalgam and such also preserved. Exodus 30.

With this have the priests in the Holy of Holies strongly been obliged to incense.

This is now what belonged to the Priesthood, that they could show such to their children. What however concerns the Urim of the High Priest Exodus 28; in which the great Jehovah showed himself, and through such at certain times spoke with the people, has not been lost, as one says, but it lies with the whole priestly finery preserved as I have previously announced to you, and will at the time, when the Lord again will visit his people, be brought out by Elias.

How my soul rejoices when I think thereon, that at that time all will be renewed and there will be no more injustice. Israel will rejoice, that the 2300 days are over from evening till morning, Daniel 8.

Be comforted, and abide in patience, and it will to you be richly rewarded.

i wonder what it is for...

Like the instruction states Herewith were the Kings and Priests anointed. When the King David was anointed with this Oil the Spirit of God took possesion of him and later wrote the Book of Psalms. That's why it was forbidden to common folk.

Catholics also have a sacred use of this oil that they call Extreme Unction Rite. A bit funny but it's true...

That is amazing.

Question - First we see one recipe, then we see another:

First: put 32 shekels heavy of good Olive Oil therein, when this became hot, then they have on hand tender, bruised and rubbed Myrrh, Cinnamon, Calamus, Cassia, of each 8 shekels heavy,

Second: This ointment Oil was prepared out of 32 shekels of Olive Oil, 12 shekels heavy Myrrh, of Aloe and Cassia, 8 shekels heavy, Exodus 20

The first contains Cinnamon and Calamas, which is replaced by Aloe alone in the 2nd version.

In Exodus 1:23 we see the following


Moreover the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: Exodus 1:23
. 23 'Take thou also unto thee the chief spices, of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty,
24 and of cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin.
25 And thou shalt make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer; it shall be a holy annointing oil.

So I would be more partial to the recipe with cinnamon, calamus and cassia for spiritual annointing.

Proverbs 7

17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning; let us solace ourselves with loves.

I think that also answers that - it appears the second oil, with Aloe, would be more for sexy-time...
lovemaking sort of thing.

Also, pardon my ignorance, but I realize that I don't know what a vessel of Acures was.
Initially, I thought, that is was just the shape according to the book of Abraham the Jew.
but in this recipe it says <<The Ancients took a vessel of Acures or a vessel of stone, covered with Acures,>>

so... now I realize, I don't know what Acures is...

Acures is a Vessel made of Earth,
... is a Retort,
... is a mortar made of Stone or Earth

I am struggling with something here in this recipe for the Anointing Oil (thinking of doing this tonight - on the full moon in Leo - as this is, after all, an oil to anoint kings - :D

However, in the Torah, we see a little bit different of proportions for the same recipe -


. 23 'Take thou also unto thee the chief spices, of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty,
24 and of cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin.
25 And thou shalt make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer; it shall be a holy annointing oil.
Exodus 1:23

So we see a different ratio in this recipe than from what the book of Abraham the Jew proposes.

in the 2nd Edition english version we see 1:1:1:1 ratio of
Myrrh, Cinnamon, Cassia, and Calamus

but in the Torah, Exodus 1:23 - same ingredients -
we see, 2:1:2:1 for those respective herbs.

I must say... I am more partial to the ingredients written directly in the Torah, than to the poorly
translated 2nd edition version in RAMS.

Also, cooking for only 1/4 hour doesn't seem enough... to make a good oil infusion.

Can anybody read the German 1st edition and verify these proportions and instructions?

Thanks!!
Smell is heavenly. Very strong combination of the cinnamon (from both the common cinnamon and the cassia)
and the myrr. Imagine that smell! Very nice.Very beautiful. Uplifting, as they say. I concur.
The calamus - (the sample I have in particular) doesn't have a strong smell.



What was the proportion of Olive oil to the other ingredients?

VERY good question. I spent some time deliberating that.
I only had 75 grams of cassia - and being one of the herbs that was supposed to be 2X the others,
that decided the proportions. 75 grams of cassia, 75 grams of myrr, 37.5 cinnamon, 37.5 calamus.
the amounts totalled 225 grams, which is how much olive oil I used, by weight. 1:1
However, LOOKING at it, it didn't seem right, so I doubled the amount of olive oil to herb 2:1 -
450 grams olive oil : 225 grams of total herb weight.
Seemed good.
After beginning, I did see that I could have used less olive oil, but I am not displeased that I did, since, it would just
be a big mass of oil and herb, barely any fluidity left...
3:2 may also work . 1:1 is really pushnig it.
it's important to have a press, to get the oil out and then filter, to get the smaller stuff out.

What a beautiful experience.
So far I haven't anointed anything / anyone yet.

This is pretty interesting. The good thing is with holy materials used in ancient religions is that they usually have special properties which means they can be used for MANY things, even outside the original religion or culture. Moreover, often you find the same or very similar substances used in different religions which once again proves their universal nature.

That oil sounds pretty interesting, the ingredients are all very valued and/or powerful herbs.

A few notes: Today, what you usually get in the stores labeled as cinnamon, is actually CASSIA. Cassia and Cinnamon are brothers, Cassia being the lower quality (as a spice) and the cheaper, that's why they sell you cassia labeled Cinnamon. When you buy it powdered it's almost impossible to differentiate. It may also be a micture of teh two. So you want to buy them in raw bark form, where differentiating is pretty easy:

Cassia has a strong, thick bark, usually 1-2 millimeter thick, and single layered. On the contrary, true cinnamon bark is made of many thin, paper like layers.

Cassia (picture is called cinnamon, but it isn't.)

The two center samples: Cassia on the left, Cinnamon on the right
http://www.popsci.com/files/imagecache/article_image_large/articles/Cinnamon_Variaties_-_Robin.jpeg

The difference is very clear. So buying bark is the only way to make sure you get real cinnamon. Sad that it is one more thing some money-hungry people screw us up with... if you search for "cinnamon" in Google images, you will mostly find pics of cassia. And the majority of people have no idea.


Some questions to True Puffer:
- You say the RAMs version is misused. Is it also mistranslated, or the only issue is the missing parts?
- Do you think there may be volunteers to translate the missing parts? It can be done part by part and over time. Right now even a vague translation would worth more than no translation.


I'm personally interested in the 12 gems, especially Urim and Tummim, and REALLY interested in that index of words and terms which may be really useful to decode alchemical writings too, not only this one.

What concerns the volunteers and translation honestly i don't know. I suggest you try to wake interest in some people and persuade them to invest their time in this or you pay a professional translator.

I have attached the portion of Samuels Baruchs book which is number 13 that deals with the syntethical preparation of 12 gemstones and so-called Urim and Thummim.
