a Translation of the Emerald Tablet
by Sir Isaac Newton’s

It is true without lying, certain and most true.

That which is below is like that which is above
And that which is above is like that which is below
To do the miracles of the Only Thing.

And as all things have been and arose from one
By the mediation of One,
so all things have their birth from this One Thing by adaptation.

The Sun is its father; the Moon its mother;
the Wind hath carried it in its belly; the Earth is its nurse.

The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
Its force or power is entire if it be converted into Earth.
Separate the Earth from the Fire, the subtle from the gross,
sweetly with great industry.

It ascends from the Earth to the Heavens
and again it descends to the Earth
and receives the force of things superior and inferior.
By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world
and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
Its force is above all force, for it vanquishes every subtle thing
and penetrates every solid thing.

So was the world created.
From this are and do come admirable adaptations,
whereof the process is here in this.
Hence am I called Hermes Trismegistus,
having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.
That which I have said of the operation of the Sun
is accomplished and ended.
