Each Magician needs to have a library, and should care for it like it is a living thing which grows bigger and bigger as the years pass by. To ordinary people these collections of books are often regarded as being a pointless hobby that has grown out of control. The true Magician, however, knows the actual value of his library which isn’t measured in money, but rather in the knowledge contained in the pages of the works that he or she has so painstakingly collected. The really good works he knows to be the product of many human lifetimes, and they should be treated with the same respect that a craftsman has for his tools of the trade. The most important works in each Magicians library, however, are the works that are created by his own hand, born from his own experience. Mainly because these works are part of his personal library and remain in one’s possession until death occurs. This very event is often on my mind, as me and my brother are most likely the last ones of our bloodline. This may cause my hoard of accumulated knowledge to become lost, as there is no one to inherit my beloved library. Therefore I will, once and a while, supply the reader with material that comes from my personal library. Most of these texts are the products of already existing information, yet they are unique as I have constructed them myself, using the tools that were already at my disposal.
Take a look at the following protective exorcism which I have constructed for being a Priest of Marduk and Master Enki. That their servant may remain whole.

See how this incantation numbers 40 lines in total. It is the Number of Enki, which is a most excellent number. This sacred Number reinforces the intent with which this incantation was constructed. It is not just a random collection of sentences that I threw together, but the concept of such incantations as this one has been given much thought, and up until now this incantation has only been voiced in this manner in my very own Temple-chamber.
Here follows the English translation so it can be properly understood.
1. I am the Sorcerer-Priest of ENKI!
2. And I am the Messenger of MARDUK!
3. SHAMMASH stands before me!
4. SIN stands behind me!
5. NERGAL stands at my right hand!
6. And NINIB stands at my left hand!
7. For I am the Sorcerer-Priest of ENKI!
8. May the Evil Spirit stand aside!
9. May the Evil Demon stand aside!
10. May the Evil God stand aside!
11. May the Evil Ghost stand aside!
12. May the Evil Devil stand aside!
13. May the Evil Fiend stand aside!
14. May the Evil Genius stand aside!
15. May the word of ENKI make clear!
16. That unto my body they may not draw nigh!
17. May DAMKINA direct aright!
18. That before me they may wreak no evil!
19. Nor may they follow behind me!
20. For my spell is the spell of ENKI!
21. And my incantation is the incantation of MARDUK!
22. Begone Evil Spirit! Go to the desert!
23. Begone Evil Demon! Go to the desert!
24. Begone Evil God! Go to the desert!
25. Begone Evil Ghost! Go to the desert!
26. Begone Evil Devil! Go to the desert!
27. Begone Evil Fiend! Go to the desert!
28. Begone Evil Genius! Go to the desert!
29. By the Great Gods I exorcise thee! That thou mayest depart!
30. That ye may go forth, and get hence!
31. By Heaven mayest thou be exorcised!
32. By Earth mayest thou be exorcised!
33. For I am the Messenger of MARDUK!
34. O MARDUK, eldest son of the Ocean Deep!
35. Thine is the power to brighten and bless!
36. And I am the Sorcerer-Priest of ENKI!
37. O my Lord ENKI!
38. Thine is the power to brighten and bless!
39. Spirit of the Sky, Remember!
40. Spirit of the Earth, Remember!
Creating texts such as this one serves the Magician in several ways. One becomes familiar with the ancient tongue, and one bonds with the forces called upon in a personal manner because, while all the lines used in this incantation originate from ancient cuneiform tablets, they have be made anew in a form that best fits the mindset and emotions of the Magician who created it. Even though the ancient priests never used the text in this particular manner, it has not been bled of power because the sentences have not been altered in any way. They remain the same as they were when they were voiced by the priesthood of ancient Sumer. No major losses of power have occurred because the only thing that has changed is the rearangement of the sentences, which can be considered to be a fine-tuning of the raw material.
