Jah Lyrics: Toots - Six And Seven Books Of Moses LyricsThe Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses is an 18th- or 19th-century magical text allegedly written by Moses , and passed down as hidden or lost books of the Jewish Tanakh. Self-described as "the wonderful arts of the old Hebrews , taken from the Mosaic books of the cabala and the Talmud ," it is actually a grimoire , or text of magical incantations and seals, that purports to instruct the reader in the spells used to create some of the miracles portrayed in the Bible as well as to grant other forms of good fortune and good health. The work contains reputed Talmudic magic names, words, and ideograms, some written in Hebrew and some with letters from the Latin alphabet. It contains "Seals" or magical drawings accompanied by instructions intended to help the user perform various tasks, from controlling weather or people to contacting the dead or Biblical religious figures. Copies have been traced to 18th-century German pamphlets, but an printing, aided by the appearance of the popular press in the 19th century, spread the text through Germany and Northern Europe to German Americans and eventually helped popularize the texts among African Americans in the United States , the Caribbean , and Anglophone West Africa.
