The first English translation of the ancient Hebrew manuscript was printed in 1701 in Amsterdam. The English version includes an explanatory text on the holy names of God, the divisions of Heaven and Hell, and the names and hierarchy of the angels and spirits.
According to Hebrew legend, the Sepher Razial (Sepher is Hebrew for Book. Raziel is the "secret of God") was given to Adam in the Garden of Eden, by the hand of God. The legend suggests that this diverse compendium of ancient Hebrew lore was the first book ever written.
