J53; E202|            Jerusalem

J53; E202|          Chap 3.

J53.1;   E202|        But Los, who is the Vehicular Form of strong Urthona
J53.2;   E202|        Wept vehemently over Albion where Thames currents spring
J53.3;   E202|        From the rivers of Beulah; pleasant river! soft, mild, parent stream
J53.4;   E202|        And the roots of Albions Tree enterd the Soul of Los
J53.5;   E202|        As he sat before his Furnaces clothd in sackcloth of hair
J53.6;   E202|        In gnawing pain dividing him from his Emanation;
J53.7;   E202|        Inclosing all the Children of Los time after time.
J53.8;   E202|        Their Giant forms condensing into Nations & Peoples & Tongues   t305
J53.9;   E202|        Translucent the Furnaces, of Beryll & Emerald immortal:
J53.10; E202|        And Seven-fold each within other: incomprehensible
J53.11; E202|        To the Vegetated Mortal Eye's perverted & single vision
J53.12; E202|        The Bellows are the Animal Lungs. the hammers, the Animal Heart
J53.13; E202|        The Furnaces, the Stomach for Digestion; terrible their fury
J53.14; E202|        Like seven burning heavens rang'd from South to North

J53.15; E203|        Here on the banks of the Thames, Los builded Golgonooza,
J53.16; E203|        Outside of the Gates of the Human Heart, beneath Beulah
J53.17; E203|        In the midst of the rocks of the Altars of Albion. In fears
J53.18; E203|        He builded it, in rage & in fury. It is the Spiritual Fourfold
J53.19; E203|        London: continually building & continually decaying desolate!
J53.20; E203|        In eternal labours: loud the Furnaces & loud the Anvils
J53.21; E203|        Of Death thunder incessant around the flaming Couches of
J53.22; E203|        The Twentyfour Friends of Albion and round the awful Four
J53.23; E203|        For the protection of the Twelve Emanations of Albions Sons
J53.24; E203|        The Mystic Union of the Emanation in the Lord; Because   t306
J53.25; E203|        Man divided from his Emanation is a dark Spectre
J53.26; E203|        His Emanation is an ever-weeping melancholy Shadow
J53.27; E203|        But she is made receptive of Generation thro' mercy
J53.28; E203|        In the Potters Furnace, among the Funeral Urns of Beulah
J53.29; E203|        From Surrey hills, thro' Italy and Greece, to Hinnoms vale.

J54.1;   E203|        In Great Eternity, every particular Form gives forth or Emanates
J54.2;   E203|        Its own peculiar Light, & the Form is the Divine Vision
J54.3;   E203|        And the Light is his Garment This is Jerusalem in every Man
J54.4;   E203|        A Tent & Tabernacle of Mutual Forgiveness Male & Female Clothings.
J54.5;   E203|        And Jerusalem is called Liberty among the Children of Albion

J54.6;   E203|        But Albion fell down a Rocky fragment from Eternity hurld
J54.7;   E203|        By his own Spectre, who is the Reasoning Power in every Man
J54.8;   E203|        Into his own Chaos which is the Memory between Man & Man

J54.9;   E203|        The silent broodings of deadly revenge springing from the
J54.10; E203|        All powerful parental affection, fills Albion from head to foot
J54.11; E203|        Seeing his Sons assimilate with Luvah, bound in the bonds
J54.12; E203|        Of spiritual Hate, from which springs Sexual Love as iron chains:
J54.13; E203|        He tosses like a Cloud outstretchd among Jerusalems Ruins
J54.14; E203|        Which overspread all the Earth, he groans among his ruind porches

J54.15; E203|        But the Spectre like a hoar frost & a Mildew rose over Albion
J54.16; E203|        Saying, I am God O Sons of Men! I am your Rational Power!
J54.17; E203|        Am I not Bacon & Newton & Locke who teach Humility to Man!
J54.18; E203|        Who teach Doubt & Experiment & my two Wings Voltaire: Rousseau.
J54.19; E203|        Where is that Friend of Sinners! that Rebel against my Laws!

J54.20; E204|        Who teaches Belief to the Nations, & an unknown Eternal Life
J54.21; E204|        Come hither into the Desart & turn these stones to bread.
J54.22; E204|        Vain foolish Man! wilt thou believe without Experiment?
J54.23; E204|        And build a World of Phantasy upon my Great Abyss!
J54.24; E204|        A World of Shapes in craving lust & devouring appetite

J54.25; E204|        So spoke the hard cold constrictive Spectre he is named Arthur
J54.26; E204|        Constricting into Druid Rocks round Canaan Agag & Aram & Pharoh

J54.27; E204|        Then Albion drew England into his bosom in groans & tears
J54.28; E204|        But she stretchd out her starry Night in Spaces against him. like
J54.29; E204|        A long Serpent, in the Abyss of the Spectre which augmented
J54.30; E204|        The Night with Dragon wings coverd with stars & in the Wings
J54.31; E204|        Jerusalem & Vala appeard: & above between the Wings magnificent
J54.32; E204|        The Divine Vision dimly appeard in clouds of blood weeping.

J55.1;   E204|        When those who disregard all Mortal Things, saw a Mighty-One
J55.2;   E204|        Among the Flowers of Beulah still retain his awful strength
J55.3;   E204|        They wonderd; checking their wild flames & Many gathering
J55.4;   E204|        Together into an Assembly; they said, let us go down
J55.5;   E204|        And see these changes! Others said, If you do so prepare
J55.6;   E204|        For being driven from our fields, what have we to do with the Dead?
J55.7;   E204|        To be their inferiors or superiors we equally abhor;
J55.8;   E204|        Superior, none we know: inferior none: all equal share
J55.9;   E204|        Divine Benevolence & joy, for the Eternal Man
J55.10; E204|        Walketh among us, calling us his Brothers & his Friends:
J55.11; E204|        Forbidding us that Veil which Satan puts between Eve & Adam
J55.12; E204|        By which the Princes of the Dead enslave their Votaries
J55.13; E204|        Teaching them to form the Serpent of precious stones & gold
J55.14; E204|        To sieze the Sons of Jerusalem & plant them in One Mans Loins
J55.15; E204|        To make One Family of Contraries: that Joseph may be sold
J55.16; E204|        Into Egypt: for Negation; a Veil the Saviour born & dying rends.

J55.17; E204|        But others said: Let us to him who only Is, & who
J55.18; E204|        Walketh among us, give decision. bring forth all your fires!

J55.19; E204|        So saying, an eternal deed was done: in fiery flames
J55.20; E204|        The Universal Conc[l]ave raged, such thunderous sounds as never   t307
J55.21; E204|        Were sounded from a mortal cloud, nor on Mount Sinai old
J55.22; E204|        Nor in Havilah where the Cherub rolld his redounding flame.

J55.23; E204|        Loud! loud! the Mountains lifted up their voices, loud the Forests
J55.24; E204|        Rivers thunderd against their banks, loud Winds furious fought
J55.25; E204|        Cities & Nations contended in fires & clouds & tempests.
J55.26; E204|        The Seas raisd up their voices & lifted their hands on high
J55.27; E204|        The Stars in their courses fought. the Sun! Moon! Heaven! Earth.
J55.28; E204|        Contending for Albion & for Jerusalem his Emanation
J55.29; E204|        And for Shiloh, the Emanation of France & for lovely Vala.

J55.30; E205|        Then far the greatest number were about to make a Separation
J55.31; E205|        And they Elected Seven, calld the Seven Eyes of God;
J55.32; E205|        Lucifer, Molech, Elohim, Shaddai, Pahad, Jehovah, Jesus.
J55.33; E205|        They namd the Eighth. he came not, he hid in Albions Forests
J55.34; E205|        But first they said: (& their Words stood in Chariots in array
J55.35; E205|        Curbing their Tygers with golden bits & bridles of silver & ivory)

J55.36; E205|        Let the Human Organs be kept in their perfect Integrity
J55.37; E205|        At will Contracting into Worms, or Expanding into Gods
J55.38; E205|        And then behold! what are these Ulro Visions of Chastity[!]
J55.39; E205|        Then as the moss upon the tree: or dust upon the plow:
J55.40; E205|        Or as the sweat upon the labouring shoulder: or as the chaff
J55.41; E205|        Of the wheat-floor or as the dregs of the sweet wine-press
J55.42; E205|        Such are these Ulro Visions, for tho we sit down within
J55.43; E205|        The plowed furrow, listning to the weeping clods till we
J55.44; E205|        Contract or Expand Space at will: or if we raise ourselves
J55.45; E205|        Upon the chariots of the morning. Contracting or Expanding Time!
J55.46; E205|        Every one knows, we are One Family! One Man blessed for ever

J55.47; E205|        Silence remaind & every one resumd his Human Majesty
J55.48; E205|        And many conversed on these things as they labourd at the furrow
J55.49; E205|        Saying: It is better to prevent misery, than to release from misery
J55.50; E205|        It is better to prevent error, than to forgive the criminal:
J55.51; E205|        Labour well the Minute Particulars, attend to the Little-ones:
J55.52; E205|        And those who are in misery cannot remain so long
J55.53; E205|        If we do but our duty: labour well the teeming Earth.

J55.54; E205|        They Plow'd in tears, the trumpets sounded before the golden Plow
J55.55; E205|        And the voices of the Living Creatures were heard in the clouds of heaven
J55.56; E205|        Crying: Compell the Reasoner to Demonstrate with unhewn Demonstrations
J55.57; E205|        Let the Indefinite be explored. and let every Man be judged
J55.58; E205|        By his own Works, Let all Indefinites be thrown into Demonstrations
J55.59; E205|        To be pounded to dust & melted in the Furnaces of Affliction:
J55.60; E205|        He who would do good to another, must do it in Minute Particulars
J55.61; E205|        General Good is the plea of the scoundrel hypocrite flatterer:
J55.62; E205|        For Art & Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars
J55.63; E205|        And not in generalizing Demonstrations of the Rational Power.
J55.64; E205|        The Infinite alone resides in Definite & Determinate Identity
J55.65; E205|        Establishment of Truth depends on destruction of Falshood continually
J55.66; E205|        On Circumcision: not on Virginity, O Reasoners of Albion

J55.67; E205|        So cried they at the Plow. Albions Rock frowned above
J55.68; E205|        And the Great Voice of Eternity rolled above terrible in clouds
J55.69; E205|        Saying Who will go forth for us! & Who shall we send before our face?

J56.1;   E206|        Then Los heaved his thund'ring Bellows on the Valley of Middlesex
J56.2;   E206|        And thus he chaunted his Song: the Daughters of Albion reply.

J56.3;   E206|        What may Man be? who can tell! But what may Woman be?
J56.4;   E206|        To have power over Man from Cradle to corruptible Grave.
J56.5;   E206|        He who is an Infant, and whose Cradle is a Manger
J56.6;   E206|        Knoweth the Infant sorrow: whence it came, and where it goeth:
J56.7;   E206|        And who weave it a Cradle of the grass that withereth away.
J56.8;   E206|        This World is all a Cradle for the erred wandering Phantom:
J56.9;   E206|        Rock'd by Year, Month, Day & Hour; and every two Moments
J56.10; E206|        Between, dwells a Daughter of Beulah, to feed the Human Vegetable
J56.11; E206|        Entune: Daughters of Albion. your hymning Chorus mildly!
J56.12; E206|        Cord of affection thrilling extatic on the iron Reel:
J56.13; E206|        To the golden Loom of Love! to the moth-labourd Woof
J56.14; E206|        A Garment and Cradle weaving for the infantine Terror:
J56.15; E206|        For fear; at entering the gate into our World of cruel
J56.16; E206|        Lamentation: it flee back & hide in Non-Entitys dark wild
J56.17; E206|        Where dwells the Spectre of Albion: destroyer of Definite Form.
J56.18; E206|        The Sun shall be a Scythed Chariot of Britain: the Moon; a Ship
J56.19; E206|        In the British Ocean! Created by Los's Hammer; measured out
J56.20; E206|        Into Days & Nights & Years & Months. to travel with my feet
J56.21; E206|        Over these desolate rocks of Albion: O daughters of despair!
J56.22; E206|        Rock the Cradle, and in mild melodies tell me where found
J56.23; E206|        What you have enwoven with so much tears & care? so much
J56.24; E206|        Tender artifice: to laugh: to weep: to learn: to know;
J56.25; E206|        Remember! recollect! what dark befel in wintry days

J56.26; E206|        O it was lost for ever! and we found it not: it came
J56.27; E206|        And wept at our wintry Door: Look! look! behold! Gwendolen
J56.28; E206|        Is become a Clod of Clay! Merlin is a Worm of the Valley!

J56.29; E206|        Then Los uttered with Hammer & Anvil: Chaunt! revoice!
J56.30; E206|        I mind not your laugh: and your frown I not fear! and
J56.31; E206|        You must my dictate obey from your gold-beam'd Looms; trill
J56.32; E206|        Gentle to Albions Watchman, on Albions mountains; reeccho
J56.33; E206|        And rock the Cradle while! Ah me! Of that Eternal Man
J56.34; E206|        And of the cradled Infancy in his bowels of compassion:
J56.35; E206|        Who fell beneath his instruments of husbandry & became
J56.36; E206|        Subservient to the clods of the furrow! the cattle and even
J56.37; E206|        The emmet and earth-Worm are his superiors & his lords.   t308

J56.38; E206|        Then the response came warbling from trilling Looms in Albion

J56.39; E206|        We Women tremble at the light therefore: hiding fearful
J56.40; E206|        The Divine Vision with Curtain & Veil & fleshly Tabernacle

J56.41; E206|        Los utter'd: swift as the rattling thunder upon the mountains[:]
J56.42; E206|        Look back into the Church Paul! Look! Three Women around
J56.43; E206|        The Cross! O Albion why didst thou a Female Will Create?

J57.1;   E207|        And the voices of Bath & Canterbury & York & Edinburgh. Cry
J57.2;   E207|        Over the Plow of Nations in the strong hand of Albion thundering along
J57.3;   E207|        Among the Fires of the Druid & the deep black rethundering Waters
J57.4;   E207|        Of the Atlantic which poured in impetuous loud loud. louder & louder.
J57.5;   E207|        And the Great Voice of the Atlantic howled over the Druid Altars:
J57.6;   E207|        Weeping over his Children in Stone-henge in Maiden & Colchester.
J57.7;   E207|        Round the Rocky Peak of Derbyshire London Stone & Rosamonds Bower

J57.8;   E207|        What is a Wife & what is a Harlot? What is a Church? & What
J57.9;   E207|        Is a Theatre? are they Two & not One? can they Exist Separate?
J57.10; E207|        Are not Religion & Politics the Same Thing? Brotherhood is Religion
J57.11; E207|        O Demonstrations of Reason Dividing Families in Cruelty & Pride!

J57.12; E207|        But Albion fled from the Divine Vision, with the Plow of Nations enflaming
J57.13; E207|        The Living Creatures maddend and Albion fell into the Furrow, and
J57.14; E207|        The Plow went over him & the Living was Plowed in among the Dead
J57.15; E207|        But his Spectre rose over the starry Plow. Albion fled beneath the Plow
J57.16; E207|        Till he came to the Rock of Ages. & he took his Seat upon the Rock.

J57.17; E207|        Wonder siezd all in Eternity! to behold the Divine Vision. open
J57.18; E207|        The Center into an Expanse, & the Center rolled out into an Expanse.

J58.1;   E207|        In beauty the Daughters of Albion divide & unite at will
J58.2;   E207|        Naked & drunk with blood Gwendolen dancing to the timbrel
J58.3;   E207|        Of War: reeling up the Street of London she divides in twain   t310

J58.4;   E207|        Among the Inhabitants of Albion. the People fall around.
J58.5;   E207|        The Daughters of Albion. divide & unite in jealousy & cruelty
J58.6;   E207|        The Inhabitants of Albion at the Harvest & the Vintage
J58.7;   E207|        Feel their Brain cut round beneath the temples shrieking
J58.8;   E207|        Bonifying into a Scull, the Marrow exuding in dismal pain
J58.9;   E207|        They flee over the rocks bonifying: Horses: Oxen: feel the knife.
J58.10; E207|        And while the Sons of Albion by severe War & Judgment, bonify
J58.11; E207|        The Hermaphroditic Condensations are divided by the Knife
J58.12; E207|        The obdurate Forms are cut asunder by jealousy & Pity.

J58.13; E207|        Rational Philosophy and Mathematic Demonstration
J58.14; E207|        Is divided in the intoxications of pleasure & affection
J58.15; E207|        Two Contraries War against each other in fury & blood,
J58.16; E207|        And Los fixes them on his Anvil, incessant his blows:
J58.17; E207|        He fixes them with strong blows. placing the stones & timbers.
J58.18; E207|        To Create a World of Generation from the World of Death:
J58.19; E207|        Dividing the Masculine & Feminine: for the comingling
J58.20; E207|        Of Albions & Luvahs Spectres was Hermaphroditic

J58.21; E207|        Urizen wrathful strode above directing the awful Building:
J58.22; E207|        As a Mighty Temple; delivering Form out of confusion[.]

J58.23; E208|        Jordan sprang beneath its threshold bubbling from beneath
J58.24; E208|        Its pillars: Euphrates ran under its arches: white sails
J58.25; E208|        And silver oars reflect on its pillars, & sound on its ecchoing
J58.26; E208|        Pavements: where walk the Sons of Jerusalem who remain Ungenerate
J58.27; E208|        But the revolving Sun and Moon pass thro its porticoes,
J58.28; E208|        Day & night, in sublime majesty & silence they revolve
J58.29; E208|        And shine glorious within! Hand & Koban archd over the Sun
J58.30; E208|        In the hot noon, as he traveld thro his journey; Hyle & Skofield
J58.31; E208|        Archd over the Moon at midnight & Los Fixd them there,
J58.32; E208|        With his thunderous Hammer; terrified the Spectres rage & flee
J58.33; E208|        Canaan is his portico; Jordan is a fountain in his porch;
J58.34; E208|        A fountain of milk & wine to relieve the traveller:
J58.35; E208|        Egypt is the eight steps within. Ethiopia supports his pillars;
J58.36; E208|        Lybia & the Lands unknown. are the ascent without;
J58.37; E208|        Within is Asia & Greece, ornamented with exquisite art:
J58.38; E208|        Persia & Media are his halls: his inmost hall is Great Tartary.
J58.39; E208|        China & India & Siberia are his temples for entertainment
J58.40; E208|        Poland & Russia & Sweden, his soft retired chambers
J58.41; E208|        France & Spain & Italy & Denmark & Holland & Germany
J58.42; E208|        Are the temples among his pillars. Britain is Los's Forge;
J58.43; E208|        America North & South are his baths of living waters.

J58.44; E208|        Such is the Ancient World of Urizen in the Satanic Void
J58.45; E208|        Created from the Valley of Middlesex by Londons River
J58.46; E208|        From Stone-henge and from London Stone, from Cornwall to Cathnes
J58.47; E208|        The Four Zoa's rush around on all sides in dire ruin
J58.48; E208|        Furious in pride of Selfhood the terrible Spectres of Albion
J58.49; E208|        Rear their dark Rocks among the Stars of God: stupendous
J58.50; E208|        Works! A World of Generation continually Creating; out of
J58.51; E208|        The Hermaphroditic Satanic World of rocky destiny.

J59.1;   E208|        And formed into Four precious stones. for enterance from Beulah

J59.2;   E208|        For the Veil of Vala which Albion cast into the Atlantic Deep
J59.3;   E208|        To catch the Souls of the Dead: began to Vegetate & Petrify
J59.4;   E208|        Around the Earth of Albion. among the Roots of his Tree
J59.5;   E208|        This Los formed into the Gates & mighty Wall, between the Oak
J59.6;   E208|        Of Weeping & the Palm of Suffering beneath Albions Tomb,
J59.7;   E208|        Thus in process of time it became the beautiful Mundane Shell,
J59.8;   E208|        The Habitation of the Spectres of the Dead & the Place
J59.9;   E208|        Of Redemption & of awaking again into Eternity

J59.10; E208|        For Four Universes round the Mundane Egg remain Chaotic
J59.11; E208|        One to the North; Urthona: One to the South; Urizen:
J59.12; E208|        One to the East: Luvah: One to the West, Tharmas;
J59.13; E208|        They are the Four Zoas that stood around the Throne Divine
J59.14; E208|        Verulam: London: York & Edinburgh: their English names
J59.15; E208|        But when Luvah assumed the World of Urizen Southward

J59.16; E209|        And Albion was slain upon his Mountains & in his Tent.
J59.17; E209|        All fell towards the Center, sinking downwards in dire ruin,
J59.18; E209|        In the South remains a burning Fire: in the East. a Void
J59.19; E209|        In the West, a World of raging Waters: in the North; solid Darkness
J59.20; E209|        Unfathomable without end: but in the midst of these
J59.21; E209|        Is Built eternally the sublime Universe of Los & Enitharmon

J59.22; E209|        And in the North Gate, in the West of the North. toward Beulah
J59.23; E209|        Cathedrons Looms are builded. and Los's Furnaces in the South
J59.24; E209|        A wondrous golden Building immense with ornaments sublime
J59.25; E209|        Is bright Cathedrons golden Hall, its Courts Towers & Pinnacles

J59.26; E209|        And one Daughter of Los sat at the fiery Reel & another
J59.27; E209|        Sat at the shining Loom with her Sisters attending round
J59.28; E209|        Terrible their distress & their sorrow cannot be utterd
J59.29; E209|        And another Daughter of Los sat at the Spinning Wheel
J59.30; E209|        Endless their labour, with bitter food. void of sleep,
J59.31; E209|        Tho hungry they labour: they rouze themselves anxious
J59.32; E209|        Hour after hour labouring at the whirling Wheel
J59.33; E209|        Many Wheels & as many lovely Daughters sit weeping

J59.34; E209|        Yet the intoxicating delight that they take in their work
J59.35; E209|        Obliterates every other evil; none pities their tears
J59.36; E209|        Yet they regard not pity & they expect no one to pity
J59.37; E209|        For they labour for life & love, regardless of any one
J59.38; E209|        But the poor Spectres that they work for, always incessantly

J59.39; E209|        They are mockd, by every one that passes by. they regard not
J59.40; E209|        They labour; & when their Wheels are broken by scorn & malice
J59.41; E209|        They mend them sorrowing with many tears & afflictions.

J59.42; E209|        Other Daughters Weave on the Cushion & Pillow, Network fine
J59.43; E209|        That Rahab & Tirzah may exist & live & breathe & love
J59.44; E209|        Ah, that it could be as the Daughters of Beulah wish!

J59.45; E209|        Other Daughters of Los, labouring at Looms less fine
J59.46; E209|        Create the Silk-worm & the Spider & the Catterpiller
J59.47; E209|        To assist in their most grievous work of pity & compassion
J59.48; E209|        And others Create the wooly Lamb & the downy Fowl
J59.49; E209|        To assist in the work: the Lamb bleats: the Sea-fowl cries
J59.50; E209|        Men understand not the distress & the labour & sorrow
J59.51; E209|        That in the Interior Worlds is carried on in fear & trembling
J59.52; E209|        Weaving the shuddring fears & loves of Albions Families
J59.53; E209|        Thunderous rage the Spindles of iron. & the iron Distaff
J59.54; E209|        Maddens in the fury of their hands, Weaving in bitter tears
J59.55; E209|        The Veil of Goats-hair & Purple & Scarlet & fine twined Linen

J60.1;   E209|        The clouds of Albions Druid Temples rage in the eastern heaven
J60.2;   E209|        While Los sat terrified beholding Albions Spectre who is Luvah

J60.3;   E210|        Spreading in bloody veins in torments over Europe & Asia;
J60.4;   E210|        Not yet formed but a wretched torment unformed & abyssal
J60.5;   E210|        In flaming fire; within the Furnaces the Divine Vision appeard
J60.6;   E210|        On Albions hills: often walking from the Furnaces in clouds
J60.7;   E210|        And flames among the Druid Temples & the Starry Wheels
J60.8;   E210|        Gatherd Jerusalems Children in his arms & bore them like
J60.9;   E210|        A Shepherd in the night of Albion which overspread all the Earth

J60.10; E210|        I gave thee liberty and life O lovely Jerusalem
J60.11; E210|        And thou hast bound me down upon the Stems of Vegetation
J60.12; E210|        I gave thee Sheep-walks upon the Spanish Mountains Jerusalem
J60.13; E210|        I gave thee Priams City and the Isles of Grecia lovely!
J60.14; E210|        I gave thee Hand & Scofield & the Counties of Albion:
J60.15; E210|        They spread forth like a lovely root into the Garden of God:
J60.16; E210|        They were as Adam before me: united into One Man,
J60.17; E210|        They stood in innocence & their skiey tent reachd over Asia
J60.18; E210|        To Nimrods Tower to Ham & Canaan walking with Mizraim
J60.19; E210|        Upon the Egyptian Nile, with solemn songs to Grecia
J60.20; E210|        And sweet Hesperia even to Great Chaldea & Tesshina
J60.21; E210|        Following thee as a Shepherd by the Four Rivers of Eden
J60.22; E210|        Why wilt thou rend thyself apart, Jerusalem?
J60.23; E210|        And build this Babylon & sacrifice in secret Groves,
J60.24; E210|        Among the Gods of Asia: among the fountains of pitch & nitre
J60.25; E210|        Therefore thy Mountains are become barren Jerusalem!
J60.26; E210|        Thy Valleys, Plains of burning sand. thy Rivers: waters of death
J60.27; E210|        Thy Villages die of the Famine and thy Cities
J60.28; E210|        Beg bread from house to house, lovely Jerusalem
J60.29; E210|        Why wilt thou deface thy beauty & the beauty of thy little-ones
J60.30; E210|        To please thy Idols, in the pretended chastities of Uncircumcision[?]
J60.31; E210|        Thy Sons are lovelier than Egypt or Assyria; wherefore
J60.32; E210|        Dost thou blacken their beauty by a Secluded place of rest.
J60.33; E210|        And a peculiar Tabernacle, to cut the integuments of beauty
J60.34; E210|        Into veils of tears and sorrows O lovely Jerusalem!
J60.35; E210|        They have perswaded thee to this, therefore their end shall come
J60.36; E210|        And I will lead thee thro the Wilderness in shadow of my cloud
J60.37; E210|        And in my love I will lead thee, lovely Shadow of Sleeping Albion.

J60.38; E210|        This is the Song of the Lamb, sung by Slaves in evening time.

J60.39; E210|        But Jerusalem faintly saw him, closd in the Dungeons of Babylon
J60.40; E210|        Her Form was held by Beulahs Daughters. but all within unseen
J60.41; E210|        She sat at the Mills, her hair unbound her feet naked
J60.42; E210|        Cut with the flints: her tears run down, her reason grows like
J60.43; E210|        The Wheel of Hand. incessant turning day & night without rest
J60.44; E210|        Insane she raves upon the winds hoarse, inarticulate:
J60.45; E210|        All night Vala hears. she triumphs in pride of holiness
J60.46; E210|        To see Jerusalem deface her lineaments with bitter blows

J60.47; E211|        Of despair. while the Satanic Holiness triumphd in Vala
J60.48; E211|        In a Religion of Chastity & Uncircumcised Selfishness
J60.49; E211|        Both of the Head & Heart & Loins, closd up in Moral Pride.

J60.50; E211|        But the Divine Lamb stood beside Jerusalem. oft she saw
J60.51; E211|        The lineaments Divine & oft the Voice heard, & oft she said:

J60.52; E211|        O Lord & Saviour, have the Gods of the Heathen pierced thee?
J60.53; E211|        Or hast thou been pierced in the House of thy Friends?
J60.54; E211|        Art thou alive! & livest thou for-evermore? or art thou
J60.55; E211|        Not: but a delusive shadow, a thought that liveth not.   t311
J60.56; E211|        Babel mocks saying, there is no God nor Son of God
J60.57; E211|        That thou O Human Imagination, O Divine Body art all
J60.58; E211|        A delusion. but I know thee O Lord when thou arisest upon
J60.59; E211|        My weary eyes even in this dungeon & this iron mill.
J60.60; E211|        The Stars of Albion cruel rise; thou bindest to sweet influences:
J60.61; E211|        For thou also sufferest with me altho I behold thee not;
J60.62; E211|        And altho I sin & blaspheme thy holy name, thou pitiest me;
J60.63; E211|        Because thou knowest I am deluded by the turning mills.
J60.64; E211|        And by these visions of pity & love because of Albions death.

J60.65; E211|        Thus spake Jerusalem, & thus the Divine Voice replied.

J60.66; E211|        Mild Shade of Man, pitiest thou these Visions of terror & woe!
J60.67; E211|        Give forth thy pity & love. fear not! lo I am with thee always.
J60.68; E211|        Only believe in me that I have power to raise from death
J60.69; E211|        Thy Brother who Sleepeth in Albion: fear not trembling Shade

J61.1;   E211|        Behold: in the Visions of Elohim Jehovah, behold Joseph & Mary
J61.2;   E211|        And be comforted O Jerusalem in the Visions of Jehovah Elohim

J61.3;   E211|        She looked & saw Joseph the Carpenter in Nazareth & Mary
J61.4;   E211|        His espoused Wife. And Mary said, If thou put me away from thee
J61.5;   E211|        Dost thou not murder me? Joseph spoke in anger & fury. Should I
J61.6;   E211|        Marry a Harlot & an Adulteress? Mary answerd, Art thou more pure
J61.7;   E211|        Than thy Maker who forgiveth Sins & calls again Her that is Lost
J61.8;   E211|        Tho She hates. he calls her again in love. I love my dear Joseph
J61.9;   E211|        But he driveth me away from his presence. yet I hear the voice of God
J61.10; E211|        In the voice of my Husband. tho he is angry for a moment, he will not
J61.11; E211|        Utterly cast me away. if I were pure, never could I taste the sweets
J61.12; E211|        Of the Forgive[ne]ss of Sins! if I were holy! I never could behold the tears
J61.13; E211|        Of love! of him who loves me in the midst of his anger in furnace of fire.

J61.14; E211|        Ah my Mary: said Joseph: weeping over & embracing her closely in
J61.15; E211|        His arms: Doth he forgive Jerusalem & not exact Purity from her who is
J61.16; E211|        Polluted. I heard his voice in my sleep O his Angel in my dream:

J61.17; E212|        Saying, Doth Jehovah Forgive a Debt only on condition that it shall
J61.18; E212|        Be Payed? Doth he Forgive Pollution only on conditions of Purity
J61.19; E212|        That Debt is not Forgiven! That Pollution is not Forgiven
J61.20; E212|        Such is the Forgiveness of the Gods, the Moral Virtues of the
J61.21; E212|        Heathen, whose tender Mercies are Cruelty. But Jehovahs Salvation
J61.22; E212|        Is without Money & without Price, in the Continual Forgiveness of Sins
J61.23; E212|        In the Perpetual Mutual Sacrifice in Great Eternity! for behold!
J61.24; E212|        There is none that liveth & Sinneth not! And this is the Covenant
J61.25; E212|        Of Jehovah: If you Forgive one-another, so shall Jehovah Forgive You:
J61.26; E212|        That He Himself may Dwell among You. Fear not then to take
J6127; E212|        To thee Mary thy Wife, for she is with Child by the Holy Ghost

J61.28; E212|        Then Mary burst forth into a Song! she flowed like a River of
J61.29; E212|        Many Streams in the arms of Joseph & gave forth her tears of joy
J61.30; E212|        Like many waters, and Emanating into gardens & palaces upon
J61.31; E212|        Euphrates & to forests & floods & animals wild & tame from
J61.32; E212|        Gihon to Hiddekel, & to corn fields & villages & inhabitants
J61.33; E212|        Upon Pison & Arnon & Jordan. And I heard the voice among
J61.34; E212|        The Reapers Saying, Am I Jerusalem the lost Adulteress? or am I
J61.35; E212|        Babylon come up to Jerusalem? And another voice answerd Saying

J61.36; E212|        Does the voice of my Lord call me again? am I pure thro his Mercy
J61.37; E212|        And Pity. Am I become lovely as a Virgin in his sight who am
J61.38; E212|        Indeed a Harlot drunken with the Sacrifice of Idols does he
J61.39; E212|        Call her pure as he did in the days of her Infancy when She
J61.40; E212|        Was cast out to the loathing of her person. The Chaldean took
J61.41; E212|        Me from my Cradle. The Amalekite stole me away upon his Camels
J61.42; E212|        Before I had ever beheld with love the Face of Jehovah; or known
J61.43; E212|        That there was a God of Mercy: O Mercy O Divine Humanity!
J61.44; E212|        O Forgiveness & Pity & Compassion! If I were Pure I should never
J61.45; E212|        Have known Thee; If I were Unpolluted I should never have
J61.46; E212|        Glorified thy Holiness, or rejoiced in thy great Salvation.

J61.47; E212|        Mary leaned her side against Jerusalem, Jerusalem recieved
J61.48; E212|        The Infant into her hands in the Visions of Jehovah. Times passed on
J61.49; E212|        Jerusalem fainted over the Cross & Sepulcher She heard the voice
J61.50; E212|        Wilt thou make Rome thy Patriarch Druid & the Kings of Europe his
J61.51; E212|        Horsemen? Man in the Resurrection changes his Sexual Garments at will
J61.52; E212|        Every Harlot was once a Virgin: every Criminal an Infant Love!

J62.1;   E212|        Repose on me till the morning of the Grave. I am thy life.

J62.2;   E212|        Jerusalem replied. I am an outcast: Albion is dead!
J62.3;   E212|        I am left to the trampling foot & the spurning heel!
J62.4;   E212|        A Harlot I am calld. I am sold from street to street!
J62.5;   E212|        I am defaced with blows & with the dirt of the Prison!

J62.6;   E213|        And wilt thou become my Husband O my Lord & Saviour?
J62.7;   E213|        Shall Vala bring thee forth! shall the Chaste be ashamed also?
J62.8;   E213|        I see the Maternal Line, I behold the Seed of the Woman!
J62.9;   E213|        Cainah, & Ada & Zillah & Naamah Wife of Noah.
J62.10; E213|        Shuahs daughter & Tamar & Rahab the Canaanites:
J62.11; E213|        Ruth the Moabite & Bathsheba of the daughters of Heth
J62.12; E213|        Naamah the Ammonite, Zibeah the Philistine, & Mary
J62.13; E213|        These are the Daughters of Vala, Mother of the Body of death
J62.14; E213|        But I thy Magdalen behold thy Spiritual Risen Body
J62.15; E213|        Shall Albion arise? I know he shall arise at the Last Day!
J62.16; E213|        I know that in my flesh I shall see God: but Emanations
J62.17; E213|        Are weak. they know not whence they are, nor whither tend.

J62.18; E213|        Jesus replied. I am the Resurrection & the Life.
J62.19; E213|        I Die & pass the limits of possibility, as it appears
J62.20; E213|        To individual perception. Luvah must be Created
J62.21; E213|        And Vala; for I cannot leave them in the gnawing Grave.
J62.22; E213|        But will prepare a way for my banished-ones to return
J62.23; E213|        Come now with me into the villages. walk thro all the cities.
J62.24; E213|        Tho thou art taken to prison & judgment, starved in the streets
J62.25; E213|        I will command the cloud to give thee food & the hard rock
J62.26; E213|        To flow with milk & wine, tho thou seest me not a season
J62.27; E213|        Even a long season & a hard journey & a howling wilderness!
J62.28; E213|        Tho Valas cloud hide thee & Luvahs fires follow thee!
J62.29; E213|        Only believe & trust in me, Lo. I am always with thee!

J62.30; E213|        So spoke the Lamb of God while Luvahs Cloud reddening above
J62.31; E213|        Burst forth in streams of blood upon the heavens & dark night
J62.32; E213|        Involvd Jerusalem. & the Wheels of Albions Sons turnd hoarse
J62.33; E213|        Over the Mountains & the fires blaz'd on Druid Altars
J62.34; E213|        And the Sun set in Tyburns Brook where Victims howl & cry.

J62.35; E213|        But Los beheld the Divine Vision among the flames of the Furnaces
J62.36; E213|        Therefore he lived & breathed in hope. but his tears fell incessant
J62.37; E213|        Because his Children were closd from him apart: & Enitharmon
J62.38; E213|        Dividing in fierce pain: also the Vision of God was closd in clouds
J62.39; E213|        Of Albions Spectres, that Los in despair oft sat, & often ponderd
J62.40; E213|        On Death Eternal in fierce shudders upon the mountains of Albion
J62.41; E213|        Walking: & in the vales in howlings fierce, then to his Anvils
J62.42; E213|        Turning, anew began his labours, tho in terrible pains!

J63.1;   E213|        Jehovah stood among the Druids in the Valley of Annandale
J63.2;   E213|        When the Four Zoas of Albion, the Four Living Creatures, the Cherubim
J63.3;   E213|        Of Albion tremble before the Spectre, in the starry likeness of the Plow
J63.4;   E213|        Of Nations. And their Names are Urizen & Luvah & Tharmas & Urthona

J63.5;   E214|        Luvah slew Tharmas the Angel of the Tongue & Albion brought him   t312
J63.6;   E214|        To Justice in his own City of Paris, denying the Resurrection
J63.7;   E214|        Then Vala the Wife of Albion, who is the Daughter of Luvah
J63.8;   E214|        Took vengeance Twelve-fold among the Chaotic Rocks of the Druids
J63.9;   E214|        Where the Human Victims howl to the Moon & Thor & Friga
J63.10; E214|        Dance the dance of death contending with Jehovah among the Cherubim.
J63.11; E214|        The Chariot Wheels filled with Eyes rage along the howling Valley
J63.12; E214|        In the Dividing of Reuben & Benjamin bleeding from Chesters River

J63.13; E214|        The Giants & the Witches & the Ghosts of Albion dance with
J63.14; E214|        Thor & Friga, & the Fairies lead the Moon along the Valley of Cherubim
J63.15; E214|        Bleeding in torrents from Mountain to Mountain, a lovely Victim
J63.16; E214|        And Jehovah stood in the Gates of the Victim, & he appeared
J63.17; E214|        A weeping Infant in the Gates of Birth in the midst of Heaven

J63.18; E214|        The Cities & Villages of Albion became Rock & Sand Unhumanized
J63.19; E214|        The Druid Sons of Albion & the Heavens a Void around unfathomable
J63.20; E214|        No Human Form but Sexual & a little weeping Infant pale reflected
J63.21; E214|        Multitudinous in the Looking Glass of Enitharmon, on all sides
J63.22; E214|        Around in the clouds of the Female, on Albions Cliffs of the Dead

J63.23; E214|        Such the appearance in Cheviot: in the Divisions of Reuben
J63.24; E214|        When the Cherubim hid their heads under their wings in deep slumbers
J63.25; E214|        When the Druids demanded Chastity from Woman & all was lost.

J63.26; E214|        How can the Female be Chaste O thou stupid Druid Cried Los
J63.27; E214|        Without the Forgiveness of Sins in the merciful clouds of Jehovah
J63.28; E214|        And without the Baptism of Repentance to wash away Calumnies. and
J63.29; E214|        The Accusations of Sin that each may be Pure in their Neighbours sight
J63.30; E214|        O when shall Jehovah give us Victims from his Flocks & Herds
J63.31; E214|        Instead of Human Victims by the Daughters of Albion & Canaan

J63.32; E214|        Then laugh'd Gwendolen & her laughter shook the Nations & Familys of
J63.33; E214|        The Dead beneath Beulah from Tyburn to Golgotha, and from
J63.34; E214|        Ireland to Japan. furious her Lions & Tygers & Wolves sport before
J63.35; E214|        Los on the Thames & Medway. London & Canterbury groan in pain

J63.36; E214|        Los knew not yet what was done: he thought it was all in Vision
J63.37; E214|        In Visions of the Dreams of Beulah among the Daughters of Albion
J63.38; E214|        Therefore the Murder was put apart in the Looking-Glass of Enitharmon

J63.39; E214|        He saw in Vala's hand the Druid Knife of Revenge & the Poison Cup

J63.40; E215|        Of Jealousy, and thought it a Poetic Vision of the Atmospheres
J63.41; E215|        Till Canaan rolld apart from Albion across the Rhine: along the Danube

J63.42; E215|        And all the Land of Canaan suspended over the Valley of Cheviot
J63.43; E215|        From Bashan to Tyre & from Troy to Gaza of the Amalekite
J63.44; E215|        And Reuben fled with his head downwards among the Caverns

J64.1;   E215|        Of the Mundane Shell which froze on all sides round Canaan on
J64.2;   E215|        The vast Expanse: where the Daughters of Albion Weave the Web
J64.3;   E215|        Of Ages & Generations, folding & unfolding it, like a Veil of Cherubim
J64.4;   E215|        And sometimes it touches the Earths summits, & sometimes spreads
J64.5;   E215|        Abroad into the Indefinite Spectre, who is the Rational Power.

J64.6;   E215|        Then All the Daughters of Albion became One before Los: even Vala!
J64.7;   E215|        And she put forth her hand upon the Looms in dreadful howlings
J64.8;   E215|        Till she vegetated into a hungry Stomach & a devouring Tongue.
J64.9;   E215|        Her Hand is a Court of Justice, her Feet: two Armies in Battle
J64.10; E215|        Storms & Pestilence: in her Locks: & in her Loins Earthquake.
J64.11; E215|        And Fire. & the Ruin of Cities & Nations & Families & Tongues

J64.12; E215|        She cries: The Human is but a Worm, & thou O Male: Thou art
J64.13; E215|        Thyself Female, a Male: a breeder of Seed: a Son & Husband: & Lo.
J64.14; E215|        The Human Divine is Womans Shadow, a Vapor in the summers heat
J64.15; E215|        Go assume Papal dignity thou Spectre, thou Male Harlot! Arthur
J64.16; E215|        Divide into the Kings of Europe in times remote O Woman-born
J64.17; E215|        And Woman-nourishd & Woman-educated & Woman-scorn'd!

J64.18; E215|        Wherefore art thou living? said Los, & Man cannot live in thy presence
J64.19; E215|        Art thou Vala the Wife of Albion O thou lovely Daughter of Luvah
J64.20; E215|        All Quarrels arise from Reasoning. the secret Murder, and
J64.21; E215|        The violent Man-slaughter. these are the Spectres double Cave
J64.22; E215|        The Sexual Death living on accusation of Sin & judgment
J64.23; E215|        To freeze Love & Innocence into the gold & silver of the Merchant
J64.24; E215|        Without Forgiveness of Sin Love is Itself Eternal Death

J64.25; E215|        Then the Spectre drew Vala into his bosom magnificent terrific
J64.26; E215|        Glittering with precious stones & gold, with Garments of blood & fire
J64.27; E215|        He wept in deadly wrath of the Spectre, in self-contradicting agony
J64.28; E215|        Crimson with Wrath & green with jealousy dazling with Love
J64.29; E215|        And jealousy immingled & the purple of the violet darkend deep
J64.30; E215|        Over the Plow of Nations thundring in the hand of Albions Spectre

J64.31; E215|        A dark Hermaphrodite they stood frowning upon Londons River
J64.32; E215|        And the Distaff & Spindle in the hands of Vala with the Flax of
J64.33; E215|        Human Miseries turnd fierce with the Lives of Men along the Valley
J64.34; E215|        As Reuben fled before the Daughters of Albion Taxing the Nations

J64.35; E216|        Derby Peak yawnd a horrid Chasm at the Cries of Gwendolen, & at
J64.36; E216|        The stamping feet of Ragan upon the flaming Treddles of her Loom
J64.37; E216|        That drop with crimson gore with the Loves of Albion & Canaan
J64.38; E216|        Opening along the Valley of Rephaim, weaving over the Caves of Machpelah

J65.1;   E216|        To decide Two Worlds with a great decision: a World of Mercy, and
J65.2;   E216|        A World of Justice: the World of Mercy for Salvation
J65.3;   E216|        To cast Luvah into the Wrath, and Albion into the Pity
J65.4;   E216|        In the Two Contraries of Humanity & in the Four Regions.

J65.5;   E216|        For in the depths of Albions bosom in the eastern heaven,
J65.6;   E216|        They sound the clarions strong! they chain the howling Captives!
J65.7;   E216|        They cast the lots into the helmet: they give the oath of blood in Lambeth
J65.8;   E216|        They vote the death of Luvah, & they naild him to Albions Tree in Bath:
J65.9;   E216|        They staind him with poisonous blue, they inwove him in cruel roots
J65.10; E216|        To die a death of Six thousand years bound round with vegetation
J65.11; E216|        The sun was black & the moon rolld a useless globe thro Britain!

J65.12; E216|        Then left the Sons of Urizen the plow & harrow, the loom
J65.13; E216|        The hammer & the chisel, & the rule & compasses; from London fleeing
J65.14; E216|        They forg'd the sword on Cheviot, the chariot of war & the battle-ax,
J65.15; E216|        The trumpet fitted to mortal battle, & the flute of summer in Annandale
J65.16; E216|        And all the Arts of Life. they changd into the Arts of Death in Albion.
J65.17; E216|        The hour-glass contemnd because its simple workmanship.
J65.18; E216|        Was like the workmanship of the plowman, & the water wheel,
J65.19; E216|        That raises water into cisterns: broken & burnd with fire:
J65.20; E216|        Because its workmanship. was like the workmanship of the shepherd.
J65.21; E216|        And in their stead, intricate wheels invented, wheel without wheel:
J65.22; E216|        To perplex youth in their outgoings, & to bind to labours in Albion
J65.23; E216|        Of day & night the myriads of eternity that they may grind
J65.24; E216|        And polish brass & iron hour after hour laborious task!
J65.25; E216|        Kept ignorant of its use, that they might spend the days of wisdom
J65.26; E216|        In sorrowful drudgery, to obtain a scanty pittance of bread:
J65.27; E216|        In ignorance to view a small portion & think that All,
J65.28; E216|        And call it Demonstration: blind to all the simple rules of life.

J65.29; E216|        Now: now the battle rages round thy tender limbs O Vala
J65.30; E216|        Now smile among thy bitter tears: now put on all thy beauty
J65.31; E216|        Is not the wound of the sword sweet! & the broken bone delightful?
J65.32; E216|        Wilt thou now smile among the scythes when the wounded groan in the field[?]
J65.33; E216|        We were carried away in thousands from London; & in tens
J65.34; E216|        Of thousands from Westminster & Marybone in ships closd up:

J65.35; E217|        Chaind hand & foot, compelld to fight under the iron whips
J65.36; E217|        Of our captains; fearing our officers more than the enemy.
J65.37; E217|        Lift up thy blue eyes Vala & put on thy sapphire shoes:
J65.38; E217|        O melancholy Magdalen behold the morning over Malden break;
J65.39; E217|        Gird on thy flaming zone, descend into the sepulcher of Canterbury.
J65.40; E217|        Scatter the blood from thy golden brow, the tears from thy silver locks:
J65.41; E217|        Shake off the waters from thy wings! & the dust from thy white garments
J65.42; E217|        Remember all thy feigned terrors on the secret couch of Lambeths Vale
J65.43; E217|        When the sun rose in glowing morn, with arms of mighty hosts
J65.44; E217|        Marching to battle who was wont to rise with Urizens harps
J65.45; E217|        Girt as a sower with his seed to scatter life abroad over Albion:
J65.46; E217|        Arise O Vala! bring the bow of Urizen: bring the swift arrows of light.
J65.47; E217|        How rag'd the golden horses of Urizen, compelld to the chariot of love!
J65.48; E217|        Compelld to leave the plow to the ox, to snuff up the winds of desolation
J65.49; E217|        To trample the corn fields in boastful neighings: this is no gentle harp
J65.50; E217|        This is no warbling brook, nor shadow of a mirtle tree:
J65.51; E217|        But blood and wounds and dismal cries, and shadows of the oak:
J65.52; E217|        And hearts laid open to the light, by the broad grizly sword:
J65.53; E217|        And bowels hid in hammerd steel rip'd quivering on the ground.
J65.54; E217|        Call forth thy smiles of soft deceit: call forth thy cloudy tears:
J65.55; E217|        We hear thy sighs in trumpets shrill when morn shall blood renew.

J65.56; E217|        So sang the Spectre Sons of Albion round Luvahs Stone of Trial:
J65.57; E217|        Mocking and deriding at the writhings of their Victim on Salisbury:
J65.58; E217|        Drinking his Emanation in intoxicating bliss rejoicing in Giant dance;
J65.59; E217|        For a Spectre has no Emanation but what he imbibes from decieving
J65.60; E217|        A Victim! Then he becomes her Priest & she his Tabernacle.
J65.61; E217|        And his Oak Grove, till the Victim rend the woven Veil.
J65.62; E217|        In the end of his sleep when Jesus calls him from his grave   t313

J65.63; E217|        Howling the Victims on the Druid Altars yield their souls
J65.64; E217|        To the stern Warriors: lovely sport the Daughters round their Victims;
J65.65; E217|        Drinking their lives in sweet intoxication. hence arose from Bath
J65.66; E217|        Soft deluding odours, in spiral volutions intricately winding
J65.67; E217|        Over Albions mountains, a feminine indefinite cruel delusion.
J65.68; E217|        Astonishd: terrified & in pain & torment. Sudden they behold
J65.69; E217|        Their own Parent the Emanation of their murderd Enemy
J65.70; E217|        Become their Emanation and their Temple and Tabernacle
J65.71; E217|        They knew not. this Vala was their beloved Mother Vala Albions Wife.

J65.72; E217|        Terrified at the sight of the Victim: at his distorted sinews!
J65.73; E217|        The tremblings of Vala vibrate thro' the limbs of Albions Sons:
J65.74; E217|        While they rejoice over Luvah in mockery & bitter scorn:
J65.75; E217|        Sudden they become like what they behold in howlings & deadly pain.
J65.76; E217|        Spasms smite their features, sinews & limbs: pale they look on one another.

J65.77; E218|        They turn, contorted: their iron necks bend unwilling towards
J65.78; E218|        Luvah: their lips tremble: their muscular fibres are crampd & smitten
J65.79; E218|        They become like what they behold! Yet immense in strength & power,

J66.1;   E218|        In awful pomp & gold, in all the precious unhewn stones of Eden
J66.2;   E218|        They build a stupendous Building on the Plain of Salisbury; with chains
J66.3;   E218|        Of rocks round London Stone: of Reasonings: of unhewn Demonstrations
J66.4;   E218|        In labyrinthine arches. (Mighty Urizen the Architect.) thro which
J66.5;   E218|        The Heavens might revolve & Eternity be bound in their chain.
J66.6;   E218|        Labour unparallelld! a wondrous rocky World of cruel destiny
J66.7;   E218|        Rocks piled on rocks reaching the stars: stretching from pole to pole.
J66.8;   E218|        The Building is Natural Religion & its Altars Natural Morality
J66.9;   E218|        A building of eternal death: whose proportions are eternal despair
J66.10; E218|        Here Vala stood turning the iron Spindle of destruction
J66.11; E218|        From heaven to earth: howling! invisible! but not invisible
J66.12; E218|        Her Two Covering Cherubs afterwards named Voltaire & Rousseau:
J66.13; E218|        Two frowning Rocks: on each side of the Cove & Stone of Torture:
J66.14; E218|        Frozen Sons of the feminine Tabernacle of Bacon, Newton & Locke.
J66.15; E218|        For Luvah is France: the Victim of the Spectres of Albion.

J66.16; E218|        Los beheld in terror: he pour'd his loud storms on the Furnaces:
J66.17; E218|        The Daughters of Albion clothed in garments of needle work
J66.18; E218|        Strip them off from their shoulders and bosoms, they lay aside
J66.19; E218|        Their garments; they sit naked upon the Stone of trial.
J66.20; E218|        The Knife of flint passes over the howling Victim: his blood
J66.21; E218|        Gushes & stains the fair side of the fair Daug[h]ters of Albion.
J66.22; E218|        They put aside his curls; they divide his seven locks upon
J66.23; E218|        His forehead: they bind his forehead with thorns of iron
J66.24; E218|        They put into his hand a reed, they mock: Saying: Behold
J66.25; E218|        The King of Canaan whose are seven hundred chariots of iron!
J66.26; E218|        They take off his vesture whole with their Knives of flint:
J66.27; E218|        But they cut asunder his inner garments: searching with
J66.28; E218|        Their cruel fingers for his heart, & there they enter in pomp,
J66.29; E218|        In many tears; & there they erect a temple & an altar:
J66.30; E218|        They pour cold water on his brain in front, to cause.
J66.31; E218|        Lids to grow over his eyes in veils of tears: and caverns
J66.32; E218|        To freeze over his nostrils, while they feed his tongue from cups
J66.33; E218|        And dishes of painted clay. Glowing with beauty & cruelty:
J66.34; E218|        They obscure the sun & the moon; no eye can look upon them.

J66.35; E218|        Ah! alas! at the sight of the Victim, & at sight of those who are smitten,
J66.36; E218|        All who see. become what they behold. their eyes are coverd
J66.37; E218|        With veils of tears and their nostrils & tongues shrunk up
J66.38; E218|        Their ear bent outwards. as their Victim, so are they in the pangs
J66.39; E218|        Of unconquerable fear! amidst delights of revenge Earth-shaking!

J66.40; E219|        And as their eye & ear shrunk, the heavens shrunk away
J66.41; E219|        The Divine Vision became First a burning flame, then a column
J66.42; E219|        Of fire, then an awful fiery wheel surrounding earth & heaven:
J66.43; E219|        And then a globe of blood wandering distant in all unknown night:
J66.44; E219|        Afar into the unknown night the mountains fled away:
J66.45; E219|        Six months of mortality; a summer: & six months of mortality; a winter:
J66.46; E219|        The Human form began to be alterd by the Daughters of Albion
J66.47; E219|        And the perceptions to be dissipated into the Indefinite. Becoming
J66.48; E219|        A mighty Polypus nam'd Albions Tree: they tie the Veins
J66.49; E219|        And Nerves into two knots: & the Seed into a double knot:
J66.50; E219|        They look forth: the Sun is shrunk: the Heavens are shrunk
J66.51; E219|        Away into the far remote: and the Trees & Mountains witherd
J66.52; E219|        Into indefinite cloudy shadows in darkness & separation.
J66.53; E219|        By Invisible hatreds adjoind, they seem remote and separate
J66.54; E219|        From each other; and yet are a Mighty Polypus in the Deep!
J66.55; E219|        As the Misletoe grows on the Oak, so Albions Tree on Eternity: Lo!
J66.56; E219|        He who will not comingle in Love, must be adjoind by Hate

J66.57; E219|        They look forth from Stone-henge! from the Cove round London Stone
J66.58; E219|        They look on one another: the mountain calls out to the mountain:
J66.59; E219|        Plinlimmon shrunk away: Snowdon trembled: the mountains
J66.60; E219|        Of Wales & Scotland beheld the descending War: the routed flying:
J66.61; E219|        Red run the streams of Albion: Thames is drunk with blood:
J66.62; E219|        As Gwendolen cast the shuttle of war: as Cambel returnd the beam.
J66.63; E219|        The Humber & the Severn: are drunk with the blood of the slain:
J66.64; E219|        London feels his brain cut round: Edinburghs heart is circumscribed!
J66.65; E219|        York & Lincoln hide among the flocks, because of the griding Knife.
J66.66; E219|        Worcester & Hereford: Oxford & Cambridge reel & stagger,
J66.67; E219|        Overwearied with howling: Wales & Scotland alone sustain the fight!
J66.68; E219|        The inhabitants are sick to death: they labour to divide into Days
J66.69; E219|        And Nights, the uncertain Periods: and into Weeks & Months. In vain
J66.70; E219|        They send the Dove & Raven: & in vain the Serpent over the mountains.
J66.71; E219|        And in vain the Eagle & Lion over the four-fold wilderness.
J66.72; E219|        They return not: but generate in rocky places desolate.
J66.73; E219|        They return not; but build a habitation separate from Man.
J66.74; E219|        The Sun forgets his course like a drunken man; he hesitates,
J66.75; E219|        Upon the Cheselden hills, thinking to sleep on the Severn
J66.76; E219|        In vain: he is hurried afar into an unknown Night
J66.77; E219|        He bleeds in torrents of blood as he rolls thro heaven above
J66.78; E219|        He chokes up the paths of the sky; the Moon is leprous as snow:
J66.79; E219|        Trembling & descending down seeking to rest upon high Mona:
J66.80; E219|        Scattering her leprous snows in flakes of disease over Albion.
J66.81; E219|        The Stars flee remote: the heaven is iron, the earth is sulphur,
J66.82; E219|        And all the mountains & hills shrink up like a withering gourd,
J66.83; E219|        As the Senses of Men shrink together under the Knife of flint,
J66.84; E219|        In the hands of Albions Daughters, among the Druid Temples.

J67.1;   E220|        By those who drink their blood & the blood of their Covenant

J67.2;   E220|        And the Twelve Daughters of Albion united in Rahab & Tirzah
J67.3;   E220|        A Double Female: and they drew out from the Rocky Stones
J67.4;   E220|        Fibres of Life to Weave[,] for every Female is a Golden Loom
J67.5;   E220|        The Rocks are opake hardnesses covering all Vegetated things
J67.6;   E220|        And as they Wove & Cut from the Looms in various divisions
J67.7;   E220|        Stretching over Europe & Asia from Ireland to Japan
J67.8;   E220|        They divided into many lovely Daughters to be counterparts
J67.9;   E220|        To those they Wove, for when they Wove a Male, they divided
J67.10; E220|        Into a Female to the Woven Male. in opake hardness
J67.11; E220|        They cut the Fibres from the Rocks groaning in pain they Weave;
J67.12; E220|        Calling the Rocks Atomic Origins of Existence; denying Eternity
J67.13; E220|        By the Atheistical Epicurean Philosophy of Albions Tree
J67.14; E220|        Such are the Feminine & Masculine when separated from Man
J67.15; E220|        They call the Rocks Parents of Men, & adore the frowning Chaos
J67.16; E220|        Dancing around in howling pain clothed in the bloody Veil.
J67.17; E220|        Hiding Albions Sons within the Veil, closing Jerusalems
J67.18; E220|        Sons without; to feed with their Souls the Spectres of Albion
J67.19; E220|        Ashamed to give Love openly to the piteous & merciful Man
J67.20; E220|        Counting him an imbecile mockery: but the Warrior
J67.21; E220|        They adore: & his revenge cherish with the blood of the Innocent
J67.22; E220|        They drink up Dan & Gad, to feed with milk Skofeld & Kotope
J67.23; E220|        They strip off Josephs Coat & dip it in the blood of battle

J67.24; E220|        Tirzah sits weeping to hear the shrieks of the dying: her Knife
J67.25; E220|        Of flint is in her hand: she passes it over the howling Victim
J67.26; E220|        The Daughters Weave their Work in loud cries over the Rock
J67.27; E220|        Of Horeb! still eyeing Albions Cliffs eagerly siezing & twisting
J67.28; E220|        The threads of Vala & Jerusalem running from mountain to mountain
J67.29; E220|        Over the whole Earth: loud the Warriors rage in Beth Peor
J67.30; E220|        Beneath the iron whips of their Captains & consecrated banners
J67.31; E220|        Loud the Sun & Moon rage in the conflict: loud the Stars
J67.32; E220|        Shout in the night of battle & their spears grow to their hands
J67.33; E220|        With blood, weaving the deaths of the Mighty into a Tabernacle
J67.34; E220|        For Rahab & Tirzah; till the Great Polypus of Generation coverd the Earth

J67.35; E220|        In Verulam the Polypus's Head, winding around his bulk
J67.36; E220|        Thro Rochester, and Chichester, & Exeter & Salisbury,
J67.37; E220|        To Bristol: & his Heart beat strong on Salisbury Plain
J67.38; E220|        Shooting out Fibres round the Earth, thro Gaul & Italy
J67.39; E220|        And Greece, & along the Sea of Rephaim into Judea
J67.40; E220|        To Sodom & Gomorrha: thence to India, China & Japan

J67.41; E220|        The Twelve Daughters in Rahab & Tirzah have circumscribd the Brain
J67.42; E220|        Beneath & pierced it thro the midst with a golden pin.
J67.43; E220|        Blood hath staind her fair side beneath her bosom.

J67.44; E221|        O thou poor Human Form! said she. O thou poor child of woe!
J67.45; E221|        Why wilt thou wander away from Tirzah: why me compel to bind thee[!]
J67.46; E221|        If thou dost go away from me I shall consume upon these Rocks
J67.47; E221|        These fibres of thine eyes that used to beam in distant heavens
J67.48; E221|        Away from me: I have bound down with a hot iron.
J67.49; E221|        These nostrils that expanded with delight in morning skies
J67.50; E221|        I have bent downward with lead melted in my roaring furnaces
J67.51; E221|        Of affliction; of love; of sweet despair; of torment unendurable
J67.52; E221|        My soul is seven furnaces, incessant roars the bellows
J67.53; E221|        Upon my terribly flaming heart, the molten metal runs
J67.54; E221|        In channels thro my fiery limbs: O love! O pity! O fear!
J67.55; E221|        O pain! O the pangs, the bitter pangs of love forsaken
J67.56; E221|        Ephraim was a wilderness of joy where all my wild beasts ran
J67.57; E221|        The River Kanah wanderd by my sweet Manassehs side
J67.58; E221|        To see the boy spring into heavens sounding from my sight!
J67.59; E221|        Go Noah fetch the girdle of strong brass, heat it red-hot:
J67.60; E221|        Press it around the loins of this ever expanding cruelty
J67.61; E221|        Shriek not so my only love! I refuse thy joys: I drink
J67.62; E221|        Thy shrieks because Hand & Hyle are cruel & obdurate to me

J68.1;   E221|        O Skofield why art thou cruel? Lo Joseph is thine! to make
J68.2;   E221|        You One: to weave you both in the same mantle of skin
J68.3;   E221|        Bind him down Sisters bind him down on Ebal. Mount of cursing:
J68.4;   E221|        Malah come forth from Lebanon: & Hoglah from Mount Sinai:
J68.5;   E221|        Come circumscribe this tongue of sweets & with a screw of iron
J68.6;   E221|        Fasten this ear into the rock! Milcah the task is thine
J68.7;   E221|        Weep not so Sisters! weep not so! our life depends on this
J68.8;   E221|        Or mercy & truth are fled away from Shechem & Mount Gilead
J68.9;   E221|        Unless my beloved is bound upon the Stems of Vegetation

J68.10; E221|        And thus the Warriors cry, in the hot day of Victory, in Songs.

J68.11; E221|        Look: the beautiful Daughter of Albion sits naked upon the Stone
J68.12; E221|        Her panting Victim beside her: her heart is drunk with blood
J68.13; E221|        Tho her brain is not drunk with wine: she goes forth from Albion
J68.14; E221|        In pride of beauty: in cruelty of holiness: in the brightness
J68.15; E221|        Of her tabernacle, & her ark & secret place, the beautiful Daughter
J68.16; E221|        Of Albion, delights the eyes of the Kings. their hearts & the
J68.17; E221|        Hearts of their Warriors glow hot before Thor & Friga. O Molech!
J68.18; E221|        O Chemosh! O Bacchus! O Venus! O Double God of Generation
J68.19; E221|        The Heavens are cut like a mantle around from the Cliffs of Albion
J68.20; E221|        Across Europe; across Africa; in howlings & deadly War
J68.21; E221|        A sheet & veil & curtain of blood is let down from Heaven
J68.22; E221|        Across the hills of Ephraim & down Mount Olivet to
J68.23; E221|        The Valley of the Jebusite: Molech rejoices in heaven
J68.24; E221|        He sees the Twelve Daughters naked upon the Twelve Stones

J68.25; E222|        Themselves condensing to rocks & into the Ribs of a Man
J68.26; E222|        Lo they shoot forth in tender Nerves across Europe & Asia
J68.27; E222|        Lo they rest upon the Tribes, where their panting Victims lie
J68.28; E222|        Molech rushes into the Kings in love to the beautiful Daughters
J68.29; E222|        But they frown & delight in cruelty, refusing all other joy
J68.30; E222|        Bring your Offerings, your first begotten: pamperd with milk & blood
J68.31; E222|        Your first born of seven years old: be they Males or Females:
J68.32; E222|        To the beautiful Daughters of Albion! they sport before the Kings
J68.33; E222|        Clothed in the sin of the Victim! blood! human blood! is the life
J68.34; E222|        And delightful food of the Warrior: the well fed Warriors flesh
J68.35; E222|        Of him who is slain in War: fills the Valleys of Ephraim with
J68.36; E222|        Breeding Women walking in pride & bringing forth under green trees
J68.37; E222|        With pleasure, without pain, for their food is. blood of the Captive
J68.38; E222|        Molech rejoices thro the Land from Havilah to Shur: he rejoices
J68.39; E222|        In moral law & its severe penalties: loud Shaddai & Jehovah
J68.40; E222|        Thunder above: when they see the Twelve panting Victims
J68.41; E222|        On the Twelve Stones of Power, & the beautiful Daughters of Albion
J68.42; E222|        If you dare rend their Veil with your Spear; you are healed of Love!
J68.43; E222|        From the Hills of Camberwell & Wimbledon: from the Valleys
J68.44; E222|        Of Walton & Esher: from Stone-henge & from Maldens Cove
J68.45; E222|        Jerusalems Pillars fall in the rendings of fierce War
J68.46; E222|        Over France & Germany: upon the Rhine & Danube
J68.47; E222|        Reuben & Benjamin flee; they hide in the Valley of Rephaim
J68.48; E222|        Why trembles the Warriors limbs when he beholds thy beauty
J68.49; E222|        Spotted with Victims blood: by the fires of thy secret tabernacle
J68.50; E222|        And thy ark & holy place: at thy frowns: at thy dire revenge
J68.51; E222|        Smitten as Uzzah of old: his armour is softend; his spear
J68.52; E222|        And sword faint in his hand, from Albion across Great Tartary
J68.53; E222|        O beautiful Daughter of Albion: cruelty is thy delight
J68.54; E222|        O Virgin of terrible eyes, who dwellest by Valleys of springs
J68.55; E222|        Beneath the Mountains of Lebanon, in the City of Rehob in Hamath
J68.56; E222|        Taught to touch the harp: to dance in the Circle of Warriors
J68.57; E222|        Before the Kings of Canaan: to cut the flesh from the Victim
J68.58; E222|        To roast the flesh in fire: to examine the Infants limbs
J68.59; E222|        In cruelties of holiness: to refuse the joys of love: to bring
J68.60; E222|        The Spies from Egypt, to raise jealousy in the bosoms of the Twelve
J68.61; E222|        Kings of Canaan: then to let the Spies depart to Meribah Kadesh
J68.62; E222|        To the place of the Amalekite; I am drunk with unsatiated love
J68.63; E222|        I must rush again to War: for the Virgin has frownd & refusd
J68.64; E222|        Sometimes I curse & sometimes bless thy fascinating beauty
J68.65; E222|        Once Man was occupied in intellectual pleasures & energies
J68.66; E222|        But now my soul is harrowd with grief & fear & love & desire
J68.67; E222|        And now I hate & now I love & Intellect is no more:
J68.68; E222|        There is no time for any thing but the torments of love & desire
J68.69; E222|        The Feminine & Masculine Shadows soft, mild & ever varying
J68.70; E222|        In beauty: are Shadows now no more, but Rocks in Horeb

J69.1;   E223|        Then all the Males combined into One Male & every one   t314
J69.2;   E223|        Became a ravening eating Cancer growing in the Female
J69.3;   E223|        A Polypus of Roots of Reasoning Doubt Despair & Death.
J69.4;   E223|        Going forth & returning from Albions Rocks to Canaan:
J69.5;   E223|        Devouring Jerusalem from every Nation of the Earth.

J69.6;   E223|        Envying stood the enormous Form at variance with Itself
J69.7;   E223|        In all its Members: in eternal torment of love & jealousy:
J69.8;   E223|        Drivn forth by Los time after time from Albions cliffy shore,
J69.9;   E223|        Drawing the free loves of Jerusalem into infernal bondage;
J69.10; E223|        That they might be born in contentions of Chastity & in
J69.11; E223|        Deadly Hate between Leah & Rachel, Daughters of Deceit & Fraud
J69.12; E223|        Bearing the Images of various Species of Contention
J69.13; E223|        And Jealousy & Abhorrence & Revenge & deadly Murder.
J69.14; E223|        Till they refuse liberty to the male; & not like Beulah
J69.15; E223|        Where every Female delights to give her maiden to her husband
J69.16; E223|        The Female searches sea & land for gratification to the
J69.17; E223|        Male Genius: who in return clothes her in gems & gold
J69.18; E223|        And feeds her with the food of Eden. hence all her beauty beams
J69.19; E223|        She Creates at her will a little moony night & silence
J69.20; E223|        With Spaces of sweet gardens & a tent of elegant beauty:
J69.21; E223|        Closed in by a sandy desart & a night of stars shining.
J69.22; E223|        And a little tender moon & hovering angels on the wing.
J69.23; E223|        And the Male gives a Time & Revolution to her Space
J69.24; E223|        Till the time of love is passed in ever varying delights
J69.25; E223|        For All Things Exist in the Human Imagination
J69.26; E223|        And thence in Beulah they are stolen by secret amorous theft,
J69.27; E223|        Till they have had Punishment enough to make them commit Crimes
J69.28; E223|        Hence rose the Tabernacle in the Wilderness & all its Offerings,
J69.29; E223|        From Male & Female Loves in Beulah & their Jealousies
J69.30; E223|        But no one can consummate Female bliss in Los's World without
J69.31; E223|        Becoming a Generated Mortal, a Vegetating Death

J69.32; E223|        And now the Spectres of the Dead awake in Beulah: all
J69.33; E223|        The Jealousies become Murderous: uniting together in Rahab
J69.34; E223|        A Religion of Chastity, forming a Commerce to sell Loves
J69.35; E223|        With Moral Law, an Equal Balance, not going down with decision
J69.36; E223|        Therefore the Male severe & cruel filld with stern Revenge:
J69.37; E223|        Mutual Hate returns & mutual Deceit & mutual Fear.

J69.38; E223|        Hence the Infernal Veil grows in the disobedient Female:
J69.39; E223|        Which Jesus rends & the whole Druid Law removes away
J69.40; E223|        From the Inner Sanctuary: a False Holiness hid within the Center,
J69.41; E223|        For the Sanctuary of Eden. is in the Camp: in the Outline,
J69.42; E223|        In the Circumference: & every Minute Particular is Holy:
J69.43; E223|        Embraces are Cominglings: from the Head even to the Feet;
J69.44; E223|        And not a pompous High Priest entering by a Secret Place.

J69.45; E224|        Jerusalem pined in her inmost soul over Wandering Reuben
J69.46; E224|        As she slept in Beulahs Night hid by the Daughters of Beulah

J70.1;   E224|        And this the form of mighty Hand sitting on Albions cliffs
J70.2;   E224|        Before the face of Albion, a mighty threatning Form.

J70.3;   E224|        His bosom wide & shoulders huge overspreading wondrous
J70.4;   E224|        Bear Three strong sinewy Necks & Three awful & terrible Heads
J70.5;   E224|        Three Brains in contradictory council brooding incessantly.
J70.6;   E224|        Neither daring to put in act its councils, fearing each-other,
J70.7;   E224|        Therefore rejecting Ideas as nothing & holding all Wisdom
J70.8;   E224|        To consist. in the agreements & disagree[me]nts of Ideas.
J70.9;   E224|        Plotting to devour Albions Body of Humanity & Love.

J70.10; E224|        Such Form the aggregate of the Twelve Sons of Albion took; & such
J70.11; E224|        Their appearance when combind: but often by birth-pangs & loud groans
J70.12; E224|        They divide to Twelve: the key-bones & the chest dividing in pain
J70.13; E224|        Disclose a hideous orifice; thence issuing the Giant-brood
J70.14; E224|        Arise as the smoke of the furnace, shaking the rocks from sea to sea.
J70.15; E224|        And there they combine into Three Forms, named Bacon & Newton & Locke,
J70.16; E224|        In the Oak Groves of Albion which overspread all the Earth.

J70.17; E224|        Imputing Sin & Righteousness to Individuals; Rahab
J70.18; E224|        Sat deep within him hid: his Feminine Power unreveal'd
J70.19; E224|        Brooding Abstract Philosophy. to destroy Imagination, the Divine-
J70.20; E224|        -Humanity A Three-fold Wonder: feminine: most beautiful: Three-fold
J70.21; E224|        Each within other. On her white marble & even Neck, her Heart
J70.22; E224|        Inorb'd and bonified: with locks of shadowing modesty, shining
J70.23; E224|        Over her beautiful Female features, soft flourishing in beauty
J70.24; E224|        Beams mild, all love and all perfection, that when the lips
J70.25; E224|        Recieve a kiss from Gods or Men, a threefold kiss returns
J70.26; E224|        From the pressd loveliness: so her whole immortal form three-fold
J70.27; E224|        Three-fold embrace returns: consuming lives of Gods & Men
J70.28; E224|        In fires of beauty melting them as gold & silver in the furnace
J70.29; E224|        Her Brain enlabyrinths the whole heaven of her bosom & loins
J70.30; E224|        To put in act what her Heart wills; O who can withstand her power
J70.31; E224|        Her name is Vala in Eternity: in Time her name is Rahab

J70.32; E224|        The Starry Heavens all were fled from the mighty limbs of Albion

J71.1;   E224|        And above Albions Land was seen the Heavenly Canaan
J71.2;   E224|        As the Substance is to the Shadow: and above Albions Twelve Sons
J71.3;   E224|        Were seen Jerusalems Sons: and all the Twelve Tribes spreading
J71.4;   E224|        Over Albion. As the Soul is to the Body, so Jerusalems Sons,
J71.5;   E224|        Are to the Sons of Albion: and Jerusalem is Albions Emanation

J71.6;   E225|        What is Above is Within, for every-thing in Eternity is translucent:
J71.7;   E225|        The Circumference is Within: Without, is formed the Selfish Center
J71.8;   E225|        And the Circumference still expands going forward to Eternity.
J71.9;   E225|        And the Center has Eternal States! these States we now explore.

J71.10; E225|        And these the Names of Albions Twelve Sons, & of his Twelve Daughters
J71.11; E225|        With their Districts. Hand dwelt in Selsey & had Sussex & Surrey
J71.12; E225|        And Kent & Middlesex: all their Rivers & their Hills, of flocks & herds:
J71.13; E225|        Their Villages Towns Cities Sea-Ports Temples sublime Cathedrals;
J71.14; E225|        All were his Friends & their Sons & Daughters intermarry in Beulah
J71.15; E225|        For all are Men in Eternity. Rivers Mountains Cities Villages,
J71.16; E225|        All are Human & when you enter into their Bosoms you walk
J71.17; E225|        In Heavens & Earths; as in your own Bosom you bear your Heaven
J71.18; E225|        And Earth, & all you behold, tho it appears Without it is Within
J71.19; E225|        In your Imagination of which this World of Mortality is but a Shadow.

J71.20; E225|        Hyle dwelt in Winchester comprehending Hants Dorset Devon Cornwall.
J71.21; E225|        Their Villages Cities SeaPorts, their Corn fields & Gardens spacious
J71.22; E225|        Palaces, Rivers & Mountains, and between Hand & Hyle arose
J71.23; E225|        Gwendolen & Cambel who is Boadicea: they go abroad & return
J71.24; E225|        Like lovely beams of light from the mingled affections of the Brothers
J71.25; E225|        The Inhabitants of the whole Earth rejoice in their beautiful light.

J71.26; E225|        Coban dwelt in Bath. Somerset Wiltshire Gloucestershire,
J71.27; E225|        Obeyd his awful voice Ignoge is his lovely Emanation;
J71.28; E225|        She adjoind with Gwantokes Children, soon lovely Cordella arose.

J71.39; E225|        Suffolk Hartford & Essex: & his Emanation is Gwinevera
J71.40; E225|        Beautiful, she beams towards the east, all kinds of precious stones
J71.41; E225|        And pearl, with instruments Of music in holy Jerusalem

J71.42; E225|        Kox had Oxford Warwick Wilts: his Emanation is Estrild:
J71.43; E225|        Joind with Cordella she shines southward over the Atlantic.

J71.48; E226|        Over the north with pearly beams gorgeous & terrible
J71.49; E226|        Jerusalem & Vala rejoice in Bowen & Conwenna.

J71.50; E226|        But the Four Sons of Jerusalem that never were Generated
J71.51; E226|        Are Rintrah and Palamabron and Theotormon and Bromion. They
J71.52; E226|        Dwell over the Four Provinces of Ireland in heavenly light
J71.53; E226|        The Four Universities of Scotland, & in Oxford & Cambridge & Winchester

J71.54; E226|        But now Albion is darkened & Jerusalem lies in ruins:
J71.55; E226|        Above the Mountains of Albion, above the head of Los.

J71.56; E226|        And Los shouted with ceaseless shoutings & his tears poured down
J71.57; E226|        His immortal cheeks, rearing his hands to heaven for aid Divine!
J71.58; E226|        But he spoke not to Albion: fearing lest Albion should turn his Back
J71.59; E226|        Against the Divine Vision: & fall over the Precipice of Eternal Death.
J71.60; E226|        But he receded before Albion & before Vala weaving the Veil
J71.61; E226|        With the iron shuttle of War among the rooted Oaks of Albion;
J71.62; E226|        Weeping & shouting to the Lord day & night; and his Children
J71.63; E226|        Wept round him as a flock silent Seven Days of Eternity

J72.1;   E226|        And the Thirty-two Counties of the Four Provinces of Ireland
J72.2;   E226|        Are thus divided: The Four Counties are in the Four Camps
J72.3;   E226|        Munster South in Reubens Gate, Connaut West in Josephs Gate
J72.4;   E226|        Ulster North in Dans Gate, Leinster East in Judahs Gate

J72.5;   E226|        For Albion in Eternity has Sixteen Gates among his Pillars
J72.6;   E226|        But the Four towards the West were Walled up & the Twelve
J72.7;   E226|        That front the Four other Points were turned Four Square
J72.8;   E226|        By Los for Jerusalems sake & called the Gates of Jerusalem
J72.9;   E226|        Because Twelve Sons of Jerusalem fled successive thro the Gates
J72.10; E226|        But the Four Sons of Jerusalem who fled not but remaind
J72.11; E226|        Are Rintrah & Palamabron & Theotormon & Bromion
J72.12; E226|        The Four that remain with Los to guard the Western Wall
J72.13; E226|        And these Four remain to guard the Four Walls of Jerusalem

J72.47; E227|        Is visible in the Mundane Shell; reversd in mountain & vale

J73.1;   E228|        Such are Cathedrons golden Halls: in the City of Golgonooza

J73.2;   E228|        And Los's Furnaces howl loud; living: self-moving: lamenting
J73.3;   E228|        With fury & despair, & they stretch from South to North

J73.35; E228|        Satan Cain Tubal Nimrod Pharoh Priam Bladud Belin
J73.36; E228|        Arthur Alfred the Norman Conqueror Richard John
J73.37; E228|        [Edward Henry Elizabeth James Charles William George]   t316
J73.38; E228|        And all the Kings & Nobles of the Earth & all their Glories
J73.39; E228|        These are Created by Rahab & Tirzah in Ulro: but around

J73.40; E229|        These, to preserve them from Eternal Death Los Creates
J73.41; E229|        Adam Noah Abraham Moses Samuel David Ezekiel
J73.42; E229|        [Pythagoras Socrates Euripedes Virgil Dante Milton]   t317
J73.43; E229|        Dissipating the rocky forms of Death, by his thunderous Hammer
J73.44; E229|        As the Pilgrim passes while the Country permanent remains
J73.45; E229|        So Men pass on: but States remain permanent for ever

J73.46; E229|        The Spectres of the Dead howl round the porches of Los
J73.47; E229|        In the terrible Family feuds of Albions cities & villages
J73.48; E229|        To devour the Body of Albion, hungring & thirsting & ravning
J73.49; E229|        The Sons of Los clothe them & feed, & provide houses & gardens
J73.50; E229|        And every Human Vegetated Form in its inward recesses
J73.51; E229|        Is a house of ple[as]antness & a garden of delight Built by the
J73.52; E229|        Sons & Daughters of Los in Bowlahoola & in Cathedron

J73.53; E229|        From London to York & Edinburgh the Furnaces rage terrible
J73.54; E229|        Primrose Hill is the mouth of the Furnace & the Iron Door;

J74.1;   E229|        The Four Zoa's clouded rage; Urizen stood by Albion
J74.2;   E229|        With Rintrah and Palamabron and Theotormon and Bromion
J74.3;   E229|        These Four are Verulam & London & York & Edinburgh
J74.4;   E229|        And the Four Zoa's are Urizen & Luvah & Tharmas & Urthona
J74.5;   E229|        In opposition deadly, and their Wheels in poisonous
J74.6;   E229|        And deadly stupor turn'd against each other loud & fierce
J74.7;   E229|        Entering into the Reasoning Power, forsaking Imagination
J74.8;   E229|        They became Spectres; & their Human Bodies were reposed
J74.9;   E229|        In Beulah, by the Daughters of Beulah with tears & lamentations
J74.10; E229|        The Spectre is the Reasoning Power in Man; & when separated
J74.11; E229|        From Imagination, and closing itself as in steel, in a Ratio
J74.12; E229|        Of the Things of Memory. It thence frames Laws & Moralities
J74.13; E229|        To destroy Imagination! the Divine Body, by Martyrdoms & Wars

J74.14; E229|        Teach me O Holy Spirit the Testimony of Jesus! let me
J74.15; E229|        Comprehend wonderous things out of the Divine Law
J74.16; E229|        I behold Babylon in the opening Street of London, I behold
J74.17; E229|        Jerusalem in ruins wandering about from house to house
J74.18; E229|        This I behold the shudderings of death attend my steps
J74.19; E229|        I walk up and down in Six Thousand Years: their Events are present before me
J74.20; E229|        To tell how Los in grief & anger, whirling round his Hammer on high
J74.21; E229|        Drave the Sons & Daughters of Albion from their ancient mountains
J74.22; E229|        They became the Twelve Gods of Asia Opposing the Divine Vision

J74.23; E229|        The Sons of Albion are Twelve: the Sons of Jerusalem Sixteen
J74.24; E229|        I tell how Albions Sons by Harmonies of Concords & Discords
J74.25; E229|        Opposed to Melody, and by Lights & Shades, opposed to Outline
J74.26; E229|        And by Abstraction opposed to the Visions of Imagination

J74.27; E230|        By cruel Laws divided Sixteen into Twelve Divisions
J74.28; E230|        How Hyle roofd Los in Albions Cliffs by the Affections rent
J74.29; E230|        Asunder & opposed to Thought, to draw Jerusalems Sons
J74.30; E230|        Into the Vortex of his Wheels. therefore Hyle is called Gog
J74.31; E230|        Age after age drawing them away towards Babylon
J74.32; E230|        Babylon, the Rational Morality deluding to death the little ones
J74.33; E230|        In strong temptations of stolen beauty; I tell how Reuben slept
J74.34; E230|        On London Stone & the Daughters of Albion ran around admiring
J74.35; E230|        His awful beauty: with Moral Virtue the fair deciever; offspring
J74.36; E230|        Of Good & Evil, they divided him in love upon the Thames & sent
J74.37; E230|        Him over Europe in streams of gore out of Cathedrons Looms
J74.38; E230|        How Los drave them from Albion & they became Daughters of Canaan
J74.39; E230|        Hence Albion was calld the Canaanite & all his Giant Sons.
J74.40; E230|        Hence is my Theme. O Lord my Saviour open thou the Gates
J74.41; E230|        And I will lead forth thy Words, telling how the Daughters
J74.42; E230|        Cut the Fibres of Reuben, how he rolld apart & took Root
J74.43; E230|        In Bashan, terror-struck Albions Sons look toward Bashan
J74.44; E230|        They have divided Simeon he also rolld apart in blood
J74.45; E230|        Over the Nations till he took Root beneath the shining Looms
J74.46; E230|        Of Albions Daughters in Philistea by the side of Amalek
J74.47; E230|        They have divided Levi: he hath shot out into Forty eight Roots
J74.48; E230|        Over the Land of Canaan: they have divided Judah
J74.49; E230|        He hath took Root in Hebron, in the Land of Hand & Hyle
J74.50; E230|        Dan: Napthali: Gad: Asher: Issachar: Zebulun: roll apart
J74.51; E230|        From all the Nations of the Earth to dissipate into Non Entity

J74.52; E230|        I see a Feminine Form arise from the Four terrible Zoas
J74.53; E230|        Beautiful but terrible struggling to take a form of beauty
J74.54; E230|        Rooted in Shechem: this is Dinah, the youthful form of Erin
J74.55; E230|        The Wound I see in South Molton S[t]reet & Stratford place
J74.56; E230|        Whence Joseph & Benjamin rolld apart away from the Nations
J74.57; E230|        In vain they rolld apart; they are fixd into the Land of Cabul

J75.1;   E230|        And Rahab Babylon the Great hath destroyed Jerusalem
J75.2;   E230|        Bath stood upon the Severn with Merlin & Bladud & Arthur
J75.3;   E230|        The Cup of Rahab in his hand: her Poisons Twenty-seven-fold

J75.4;   E230|        And all her Twenty-seven Heavens now hid & now reveal'd
J75.5;   E230|        Appear in strong delusive light of Time & Space drawn out
J75.6;   E230|        In shadowy pomp by the Eternal Prophet created evermore

J75.7;   E230|        For Los in Six Thousand Years walks up & down continually
J75.8;   E230|        That not one Moment of Time be lost & every revolution
J75.9;   E230|        Of Space he makes permanent in Bowlahoola & Cathedron.

J75.10; E230|        And these the names of the Twenty-seven Heavens & their Churches
J75.11; E230|        Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch,

J75.12; E231|        Methuselah, Lamech; these are the Giants mighty, Hermaphroditic
J75.13; E231|        Noah, Shem, Arphaxad, Cainan the Second, Salah, Heber,
J75.14; E231|        Peleg, Reu, Serug, Nahor, Terah: these are the Female Males:
J75.15; E231|        A Male within a Female hid as in an Ark & Curtains.
J75.16; E231|        Abraham, Moses, Solomon, Paul, Constantine, Charlemaine,
J75.17; E231|        Luther. these Seven are the Male Females: the Dragon Forms
J75.18; E231|        The Female hid within a Male: thus Rahab is reveald
J75.19; E231|        Mystery Babylon the Great: the Abomination of Desolation
J75.20; E231|        Religion hid in War: a Dragon red, & hidden Harlot
J75.21; E231|        But Jesus breaking thro' the Central Zones of Death & Hell
J75.22; E231|        Opens Eternity in Time & Space; triumphant in Mercy

J75.23; E231|        Thus are the Heavens formd by Los within the Mundane Shell
J75.24; E231|        And where Luther ends Adam begins again in Eternal Circle
J75.25; E231|        To awake the Prisoners of Death; to bring Albion again
J75.26; E231|        With Luvah into light eternal, in his eternal day.

J75.27; E231|        But now the Starry Heavens are fled from the mighty limbs of Albion
