The first book of Magic, called Genesis

THE FIRST BOOK OF MAGIC, CALLED

GENESIS

CHAPTER 1

1 In the beginning, magic created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of magic moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And magically there was light.

4 And magically, magic saw the light, that it was good: and magic divided the light from the darkness.

5 And magically, the light was called Day, and the darkness was called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

6  And magically, a firmament in the midst of the waters occurred, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And magic made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8 And magically the firmament was called Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

9 ¶ And magically, the waters under the heaven were gathered together unto one place, and the dry land appeared: and it was so.

10 And magically it was called land, Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and magically it was good.

11 And magically the earth brought forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: magically it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and magically it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 And then magically, there were lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And magically they wereor lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And magically there were two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And magically it was set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and magically it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And magically, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And magic created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and magically it was good.

22 And magic blessed them, magically commanding them: Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 ¶ And magic said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25 And magic made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and magically it was good.

26 And magically it was said, let us make man in our image of magic, after our likeness: and let them have magical dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So magically man was created in a magical image, in the image of magic created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And magic blessed them, and magically they were inclined to Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 ¶ And magically it was thought that magic has given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat, magically.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And magically, it was all very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

CHAPTER 2

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2 And on the seventh day magic ended.  Magic  rested on the seventh day from all his work which it made.

3 And magically the seventh day was blesse,, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which magic created and made.

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that magic made the earth and the heavens,

5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for magic had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

7 And magic formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living magical soul.

8 ¶ And magic planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there magic put the man whom it had formed.

9 And out of the ground magically it was made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil….

 

Its all downhill from their folks.  Confusion, lies, murder, misogyny, rape, jealousy, hatred, some love, greed, more love, irrationality, contradictions, and then there’s an awesome shroom trip at the end.
