Angel Raziel Guards
The Book of Secrets
"Each day the angel
Raziel makes proclamation on Mount Horeb, from heaven, of the secrets of
men to all that dwell upon the earth, and his voice resounds throughout
- Targum Ecclesiastes. 10, 20
The Book of Raziel originated when G-d gave the Secret Knowledge to the Archangel Raziel. Raziel HaMalach means "Secret of the King."
According to the Old Testament, the original Book of Raziel - Sefer Raziel- was inscribed by Adam, the first human being. Legends also say the Book of Raziel was originally inscribed on a sapphire stone.
The Sefer Raziel has been one of the most reprinted mystical manuscripts besides the Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Formation).
The Hebrew word "Raziel" means "Secret(s) of God." Raz- means "secret" and -iel
means "of God." In English, it can be spelled several ways, such as:
ratziel, razel, razeil, reziel, retziel and other combinations.

The Book of the Angel Raziel (book review)
By Rabbi Eli Mallon
Go to almost any
Jewish bookstore — and you will not find a translation as far as I know.
Yet, two translations exist: “Sepher Rezial Hemelach,” translated by
Steve Savedow  and “Book of Raziel,” translated by Giovanni Grippo
I usually try to
write only positive reviews. In the case of both these books, I must
begin by mentioning some problems: The first has to do with
English-usage itself. I found some of the English unnecessarily
difficult to understand. Mr. Savedow translated from the Hebrew rather
literally — in some cases, perhaps too literally. There seemed to be
many problems with English syntax, some of which might have been from
trying to maintain Hebrew syntax in English. Continue reading R. Mallon's review on Sefer Raziel.

Sepher Raziel: A Sixteenth Century
(Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series) Hardcover – September 8, 2010
by Don Karr (Author), Dr Stephen Skinner (Author)
Sepher Raziel text is given in two forms: a literal transcription with
no changes in spelling or wording and a modern English version. This
volume also includes a foreword which offers an overview of Raziel
manuscripts, which represent a number of independent traditions, an
essay on the literature of Solomonic magic in English, an introduction
to the Sepher Raziel manuscript presented, an appendix on incense
nomenclature as a supplement to Tractatus Thymiamatus, a list of printed
notices and manuscript sources of Sepher Raziel, and a full
bibliography of printed works on Solomonic magic and items of related
Sepher Rezial Hemelach: The Book of the Angel Rezial
is the first English translation from ancient Hebrew of the rare and
complete 1701 Amsterdam edition by Steve Savedow. 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. Paperback:
320 pages. Publisher: Weiser Books (December, 2000). Language: English.
Although it is comprehensive and has translations of the text, there has
been controversy over Savedow's translations. It is a good starting
point if you can't read Hebrew.
Sepher Raziel(German) Paperback – May 1, 2010
by Giovanni Grippo (Author). "Das Buch Razuel."
Liber Salomonis: Sepher Raziel by King Solomon (Author), Tarl Warwick (Editor). Paperback – February 15, 2016
Liber Salomonis, referred to in its own composition as the Sepher
Raziel, claims to be a book given directly to King Solomon by a
mysterious prince and sorcerer from the East. Actually written in the
Renaissance or perhaps as early as the Medieval period, it synthesizes
Kabbalistic and Hermetic lore together and is divided into seven
treatises. The subject matter ranges from the high occult of invocation
and the names of angels and of the Judeochristian god, to herbal
medicine and the creation of incense for the calling of spirits, to the
categorization of twenty four beasts and stones to coincide with the
hours of the day. With the entire core of the work ruled over by seven
angels and seven celestial bodies, the philosophy behind its somewhat
apocryphal historical content is nonetheless of extreme interest and is
here presented in modernized English for the modern audience. 82
