Khabs am Pekht

Important Notice!

A new updated version of the extract “Khabs am Pekht”, which was written in 2008 E.V., has been added, since I have discovered an English Hieroglyphic source which contain all three words. The words ‘Khabs’ and ‘Pekht’ found in Gerald Massey’s 1881 work came from his friend and ‘collaborator’ the English Egyptologist and antiquary Samuel Birch (1813-1885), who was the head of the Egyptological Department at the British Museum, and the author of a well-known English Hieroglyphic Dictionary, which had appeared in 1867. Samuel Birch helped Massey with the Ancient Egyptian words found in his two-volume A Book of the Beginnings, and which contained the two words 'Khabs' and 'Pekht'. I am inclined to believe that Gerald Massey knew the English linguist, orientalist, and Freemason Kenneth Robert Henderson Mackenzie (1833-1886), who Golden Dawn historian R. A. Gilbert believes was the author of the Golden Dawn Cipher MSS. – and I am sure that Mackenzie and Samuel Birch also knew each other!

Khabs am Pekht, The Equinox, September 1909 E.V.

The three mystic words in the three different languages as they appeared in the Golden Dawn ‘Ritual of the 0° = 0° Grade of Neophyte’, which was published by Aleister Crowley in the second number of The Equinox, September 1909 E.V.

Khabs am Pekht” were secret words from the Golden Dawn’s Cipher MSS., however, significantly, Aleister Crowley had, in fact, upon his return from the Cairo Working written them in two footnotes to stanzas found in “The Temple of the Holy Ghost” published in the first volume of his Collected Works in 1905 E.V. – a consequence of that the ‘Equinox of the Gods’ had taken place on March 21, 1904 E.V.! Furthermore, a large footnote also contained the "Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram" from the Order of the Golden Dawn!

Gerald Massey (1828-1907 E.V.)

Gerald Massey (1828-1907), English poet, writer, and self-educated Egyptologist. Gerald Massey was born on May 29, 1828, at Gamble Wharf, near Tring, Hertfordshire, England, as son of an agricultural labourer. He died on October 29, 1907, at the age of seventy-nine at his residence at South Norwood, London. Massey was a frequent guest at the Egyptian and Assyrian department at the British Museum, and he apparently knew its head from 1866 to 1885, the English Egyptologist Dr Samuel Birch (1813-1885). He was also a friend of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891), the co-founder of the Theosophical Society.

The English Egyptologist and antiquary Samuel Birch (1813-1885), who was Head of the Egyptological Department at the British Museum. Birch had in 1861 been appointed Keeper of the Oriental, British and Mediæval Antiquities.
