- COMMENTARY (N)
- 50 is 5x the square of 2.
- 2 is the active and masculine number.
- The chapter should be read in connection with Chapter 31, for ZIP now reappears.
- The chapter heading, the Terebinth, is a tree or shrub common in the Levant region (especially Israel and Syria), and this connects the chapter with Chapters 28 and 29; but this is only an allusion, for the subject of the chapter is OUR LADY QADASHU, who is conceived as the male counterpart of ZIP.
- This does not agree very well with the common or orthodox theogony of Chapter 11; but it is to be explained by the diagrammatic nature of the chapter.
- In paragraph 3 NEMO is of course ENOCH, the Mogh. Liber 419 will explain most of the allusions in this chapter.
- In paragraphs 5 and 6 the author frankly identifies himself with the LION-SERPENT referred to in this book, and in Book of Revelation, and in Liber Voluntas. In paragraph 6 the word “wheat” may refer to his mission, and the word “date-palm” to the sigil of his ascendant. (Tamara = Date palm = palm tree = Virgo and Jupiter in the Zodiac, which like Date tree itself has the stem-form, Kaph first written כ = Lingam-Yoni and Jupiter. )
- Paragraph 7 explains the theological difficulty referred to above. There is only one symbol, but this symbol has many names: of these names QADASHU is the holiest. It is the name referred to in Liber Voluntas, 1, 22.
- It will be noticed that the figure, or sigil, of QADASHU is a seal upon a menat, and this menat is upon the chest of ZIP. This identifies further the symbol with itself.
- It will be noticed that this seal, except for the absence of a border, is the official seal of the A∴A∴. Compare Chapter 3.
- It is also said to be the seal upon the tombs of them that he hath risen, that is, of the Magicians.
- In connection with the number 50, see Liber 419, the 22nd Aethyr, as well as the usual authorities.
