Solomon, Demons, Mark of the beast

Josephus Antiquites 8.2.5 5. Now the sagacity and wisdom which God had bestowed
on Solomon was so great, that he exceeded the ancients; insomuch that he was no
way inferior to the Egyptians, who are said to have been beyond all men in under
standing; nay, indeed, it is evident that their sagacity was very much inferior
to that of the king's. He also excelled and distinguished himself in wisdom abov
e those who were most eminent among the Hebrews at that time for shrewdness; tho
se I mean were Ethan, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol. He a
lso composed books of odes and songs a thousand and five, of parables and simili
tudes three thousand; for he spake a parable upon every sort of tree, from the h
yssop to the cedar; and in like manner also about beasts, about all sorts of liv
ing creatures, whether upon the earth, or in the seas, or in the air; for he was
not unacquainted with any of their natures, nor omitted inquiries about them, b
ut described them all like a philosopher, and demonstrated his exquisite knowled
ge of their several properties. God also enabled him to learn that skill which e
xpels demons, (4) which is a science useful and sanative to men. He composed suc
h incantations also by which distempers are alleviated. And he left behind him t
he manner of using exorcisms, by which they drive away demons, so that they neve
r return; and this method of cure is of great force unto this day; for I have se
en a certain man of my own country, whose name was Eleazar, releasing people tha
t were demoniacal in the presence of Vespasian, and his sons, and his captains,
and the whole multitude of his soldiers. The manner of the cure was this: He put
a ring that had a Foot of one of those sorts mentioned by Solomon to the nostri
ls of the demoniac, after which he drew out the demon through his nostrils; and
when the man fell down immediately, he abjured him to return into him no more, m
aking still mention of Solomon, and reciting the incantations which he composed.
And when Eleazar would persuade and demonstrate to the spectators that he had s
uch a power, he set a little way off a cup or basin full of water, and commanded
the demon, as he went out of the man, to overturn it, and thereby to let the sp
ectators know that he had left the man; and when this was done, the skill and wi
sdom of Solomon was shown very manifestly: for which reason it is, that all men
may know the vastness of Solomon's abilities, and how he was beloved of God, and
that the extraordinary virtues of every kind with which this king was endowed m
ay not be unknown to any people under the sun for this reason, I say, it is that
we have proceeded to speak so largely of these matters.
In between Psalm 89-91 in the Dead Sea Scrolls were found 4 "exorcism" psalms, 3
of which were never seen the 4th being Psalm 91. In the second exorcism psalm i
t speaks of Solomon invoking the spirits and demons. The psalm is not complete a
nd only fragments were found, thus a complete picture is impossible. Encyclopedi
a of Freemasonry vol 2 pg 245 "The Seal of Solomon or the Shield of David, for u
nder both names the same thing was denoted, is a hexagonal figure consisting of
two interlaced triangles, thus formin ght outlines of a sixpointed star. Upon it
was inscribed on of the sacred names of God, from which inscription it was supp
osed principally to derive its talismanic powers. These powers were very extensi
ve, for it was believed that it would extinguish fire, prevent wounds in a confl
ict, and perform many other wonders. The Jews called it the Shield of David in r
eference to the protection which it gave to its possessors. But to the other Ori
entalists it was more familiarly known as the Seal of Solmon. Among these imagin
ative people, there was a very prevalent belief in the magical character of the
King of Israel. He was esteemed rather as a great magician than as a grat monach
, and by the signet which he wore, on which this talismanic seal was engraved, h
e is supposed to have
accomplished the most extraordinary actions, and by it to have enlisted in his s
ervice the labors of the genii for the construction of his celebrated Temple....
Of all talismans, there is none, except, perhaps, the cross, which was so genera
lly prevalent among the ancients as this Seal of Solomon or Shield of David. It
has been found in the cave of Elephants, in India, accompanying the image of the
Deity, and many other places celebrated in the Brahmanical and the Buddhist rel
igions. In Medieval Jewish, Islamic and Christian legends, the Seal of Solomon w
as a magical signet ring said to have been possessed by King Solomon (or Sulayma
n in the Islamic version), which variously gave him the power to command demons
(or jinni), or to speak with animals. In one of the Arabian Nights' Entertainmen
ts, an evil djinn is described as being imprisoned in a copper bottle for 1,800
years by a lead seal stamped by the ring. Other, later books (Pseudomonarchia Da
emonum) manage to fit far more demons in the bottle (Wikipedia, Seal of Solomon,

1. The Talisman of Saturn became known as the Seal of Solomon. In the Book The H
istory and Practice of Magic, Vol. 2, the six-pointed star is called the talisma
n of Saturn and it is also referred to as the Seal of Solomon[1] From James Faus
set Brown commentary on Amos 5:26
the star of your god — R. Isaac Caro says all the astrologers represented Saturn
as the star of Israel. Probably there was a figure of a star on the head of the
image of the idol, to represent the planet Saturn; hence “images” correspond to
“star” in the parallel clause. A star in hieroglyphics represents God (Num_24:1
7). “Images” are either a Hebraism for “image,” or refer to the many images made
to represent Chiun.
John Gill commentary on Amos 5:26
e star of your god, which ye made to yourselves; or the star "your god" (q); mea
ning the same with Chiun or Saturn; perhaps the same with the star that fell fro
m the air or sky, mentioned by Sanchoniatho (r); which Astarte, the wife of Chro
nus or Saturn, is said to take and consecrate in Tyre; this they made for themse
lves, and worshipped as a deity. The Targum is, "ye have borne the tabernacle of
your priests, Chiun your image, the star your God, which ye have made to yourse
lves. It may be further observed, for the confirmation and illustration of wha
t has been said concerning Chiun, that the Egyptian Anubis, which Plutarch (x) s
ays is the same with Saturn, is called by him Kyon, which seems to be no other t
han this word Chiun: and whereas Stephen calls it Rephan, this is not a corrupti
on of the word, reading Rephan or Revan for Chevan; nor has he respect to Rimmon
, the god of the Syrians, but it is the Egyptian name for Saturn; which the Sept
uagint interpreters might choose to make use of, they interpreting for the king
of Egypt: and Diodorus Siculus (y) makes mention of an Egyptian king called Remp
whom Braunius (z) takes to be this very Chiun; see Act_7:43; but Rephas, or Reph
an, was the same with Chronus, or Saturn, from whence came the Rephaim (a), who
dwelt in Ashtaroth Karnaim, a town of Ham or Chronus; see Gen_14:5. (q) " ‫םכיהלא‬

“ Solomon’s blatant idolatry had angered the Lord to the point of bringing about
the division of the kingdom of Israel. Part of the evidence is the six-pointed
star, which was called the Seal of Solomon from then on. Let us investigate thos
e false gods with which he was involved. “First mentioned was ASHTORETH, otherwi
se called ASTARTE, the word meaning STAR. “II Kings 23:13 is explicit: ‘And the
high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the moun
t of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the
abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, a
nd for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile.’ “K
ing Solomon built an altar for Ashtoreth, worshipped her, and also practiced Mol
och rituals. It was at this time that the HEXAGRAM OR SIX-POINTED STAR CAME TO B
E CALLED THE SEAL OF SOLOMON... “ the Seal of Solomon or six-pointed star, or he
xagram was considered an ALLPOWERFUL TALISMAN especially when accompanied by the
Hebrew Yod It was also combined with the Tau cross, or Crux Ansanta in the cent
er... “ How do the dictionaries define ‘hexagram’? ‘The root word hex is defined
as (1) an evil spell, (2) a witch (v.t. to bewitch)’ (Funk & Wagnall’s Dictiona
“Solomon’s Seal was accepted as occult by the occult world. King Solomon was dee
ply involved in witchcraft and occultism. According to The Sorcerer’s Handbook,
‘King Solomon, traditionally known as an arch magician, used a spell to banish i
nfernal beings sent by the king of demons to extract human hearts [The names of
the demons are then given.]’... (Graham: 24-5, 29, 32) The Seal of Solomon is a
graphical representation of 666, the number of the Beast, and Solomon is the man
whose number is 666: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the
number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is SIX HUNDR
ED THREESCORE AND SIX. ”(Rev. 13:18) “Now the weight of gold that came to Solomo
n in one year was SIX HUNDRED THREESCORE AND SIX talents of gold...” (1 Kings 10
:14) 3. Solomon used his Seal ring to communicate with evil spirits.
"The legend that Solomon possessed a seal ring on which the name of God was engr
aved and by means of which he controlled the demons is related at length in Git.
68a, b. This legend is especially developed by Arabic writers, who declare that
the ring, on which was engraved the Most Great Name of God, and which was giv
en to Solomon from heaven, was partly brass and partly iron. With the brass part
of the ring Solomon signed his written commands to the good genii, and with the
iron part he signed his commands to the evil genii, or devils. The Arabic write
rs declare also that Solomon received four jewels from four different angels, an
d that he set them in one ring, so that he could control the four elements. The
legend that Asmodeus once obtained possession of the ring and threw it into the
sea, and that Solomon was thus deprived of his power until he discovered the rin
g inside a fish (Jellinek, B. H. ii. 86-87), also has an Arabic source (comp.

by Josephus statement ( Ant. viii. 2, § 5) that one Eleazar exorcised demons

Solomon Fabricius (l.c.) thinks that the legend of the ring of Solomon thrown in
to the sea and found afterward inside a fish is derived from the story of the ri

"The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia declares that the SIX-POINTED STAR...accordin
g to the Rosicrucians...was known to the ancient Egyptians" (Graham, p. 13 as ci
ted in Aho). Regarding Star-Worship, the Jewish Encyclopedia says, This is perha
ps the oldest form of idolatry practised by the ancients. According to Wisdom xi
ii. 2, the observation of the stars in the East very early led the people to reg
ard the planets and the fixed stars as gods. The religion of the ancient Egyptia
ns is known to have consisted preeminently of sun-worship. Moses sternly warned
the Israelites against worshiping the sun, moon, stars, and all the host of heav
en (Deut. iv. 19, xvii. 3); it may be said that the prohibition of making and wo
rshiping any image of that which is in heaven above (Ex. xx. 4; Deut. v. 8) impl
ies also the stars and the other celestial bodies. The Israelites fell into this
kind of idolatry, and as early as the time of Amos they had the images of Siccu
th and Chiun, "the stars of their god" (Amos v. 26, R. V.); the latter name is g
enerally supposed to denote the planet Saturn (Seligsohn, et al.).
