The Testament of Solomon is an Old Testament pseudepigraphical work, purportedly written by King Solomon, in which Solomon mostly describes particular demons whom he enslaved to help build the temple, the questions he put to them about their deeds and how they could be thwarted, and their answers, which provide a kind of self-help manual against demonic activity. And I command thee and Him who spake the Word and His FIAT was accomplished, and by all the names of God.
The date is very dubious, perhaps 1st century to 3rd century, certainly the oldest work surviving particularly concerned with individual demons. Also by the names ADONAI, EL, ELOHIM, ELOHI, EHYEH, ASHER EHYEH, ZABAOTH, ELION, IAH, TETRAGRAMMATON, SHADDAI, LORD GOD MOST HIGH, I do exorcise thee and do powerfully command thee, O thou Spirit N., that thou dost forthwith appear unto me here before this Circle in a fair human shape, without any deformity or tortuosity.
Solomon was penniless during this time and for some reason the ring was tossed into the sea where it was swallowed by a fish and was caught by a fisherman and was rediscovered by Solomon. Is this a true story or a mix of stories from antiquity? One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. We take the most sound of the historic references we can find, and see if he is described with a ring.
I'm pretty sure I heard them say that on a King Solomon special on TV. Then we take the fringe references and seek the ring there. Then, we must narrow Rings down to the one in question.
s whom he enslaved to help build the temple, the questions he put to them about their deeds and how they could be thwarted, and their answers, which provide a kind of self-help manual against demonic activity. Solomon lends the ring to the lad who by throwing the ring at the demon Ornias stamps him with the seal and brings him under control.
Then Solomon orders the demon Ornias to take the ring and similarly imprint the prince of demons who is Beelzeboul/Beelzebul.
The first section, called Ars Goetia, contains descriptions of the seventy-two demons that Solomon is said to have evoked and confined in a bronze vessel sealed by magic symbols, and that he obliged to work for him. For thou art conjured by the name of the LIVING and TRUE GOD, HELIOREN, wherefore fulfil thou my commands, and persist thou therein unto the end, and according unto mine interest, visibly and affably speaking unto me with a voice clear and intelligible without any ambiguity.Legend has it that King Solomon possessed a magic ring.A seal ring given to him by God made of brass and iron with the name of God on it.In Chapter 18 the demons of the 36 decans appear with names that sometimes seem to be conscious distortions of the traditional names for the decans and claim responsibility mostly for various ailments and pains.They provide the magical formulae by which they may be banished.
