1Ornias took the ring and went off to Beezebul and said to him, Solomon summons you to him. 2Beezebul said to him, Tell me, who is this Solomon you speak of? 3Ornias threw the ring at Beezebul's chest, saying, King Solomon summons you. 4And Beezebul cried out as if at a great burning flame of fire, and he got up and followed him of necessity and came to me. 5And when I saw the ruler of the demons, I glorified God and said, Blessed art thou, O Lord God Almighty, who didst give to thy servant Solomon wisdom that sits beside thy throne, 1 Cp. Wisd. ix. 4 . and didst make subject to me all the power of the demons. 6And I questioned him and said, Tell me, who are you? 7The demon said, I am Beezebul, the leader of the demons. I commanded that he should stay close beside me and make arrangements for the demons to appear before me. He himself promised to bring to me all the unclean spirits in chains. And I again glorified the God of heaven and earth, giving thanks to him at all times.
