The original text from Isaac Newton:

Tis true without lying, certain & most true. That wch is below is like that

wch is above & that wch is above is like yt wch is below to do ye miracles

of one only thing. And as all things have been & arose from one by ye

mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by

adaptation. The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath

carried it in its belly, the earth its nourse. The father of all perfection

in ye whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted

into earth. Seperate thou ye earth from ye fire, ye subtile from the gross

sweetly wth great indoustry. It ascends from ye earth to ye heaven & again

it desends to ye earth and receives ye force of things superior & inferior.

By this means you shall have ye glory of ye whole world & thereby all

obscurity shall fly from you. Its force is above all force. ffor it

vanquishes every subtile thing & penetrates every solid thing. So was ye

world created. From this are & do come admirable adaptaions whereof ye means

(Or process) is here in this. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having

the three parts of ye philosophy of ye whole world. That wch I have said of

ye operation of ye Sun is accomplished & ended.

The original text from John French:

True, without all falsity, certain and most true. That which is inferior is

as that which is superior, and that which is superior is as that which is

inferior, for the accomplishing of the miracles of one thing. And as all

things were from one, by the mediation of one, so all things have proceeded

from this one thing by adaptation. The Father thereof is the sun, and the

Mother thereof the moon. The wind carried it in its belly. The nurse thereof

is the earth. The father of all the perfection of the whole world is this.

The virtue thereof is entire, if it be turned into earth. Thou shalt

separate the earth from the fire, the subtle from the thick, sweetly, with a

great deal of judgment. It ascends from the earth up to heaven, and again

descends down to the earth, and receives the powers of superiors and

inferiors. So you have the glory of the whole world. Therefore let all

obscurity fly from you. This is the strong fortitude of the whole fortitude,

because it shall overcome everything that is subtle and penetrate every

solid thing, as the world is created. Hence shall wonderful adaptations be,

whereof this is the manner, wherefore I am called Hermes Trismegistus,

having three parts of the philosophy of the whole world. It is complete,

what I have spoken of the operation of the sun.
