The Key of Solomon (Latin: Clavicula Salomonis, Hebrew: Mafteah Shelomoh is a pseudepigraphical grimoire attributed to King Solomon. Although the author of this grimoire was traditionally the biblical King Solomon, it was probably written in the 13th Century A.D. It was translated by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers in 1888; Mathers subsequently had a lot of influence in the Golden Dawn movement.
Solomon were referenced in Early Christian writings, but lost to modern scholars until a Greek manuscript was rediscovered in the 17th century. Politically, the Psalms of Solomon are anti-Maccabee, and some psalms in the collection show a clear awareness of the Roman conquest of Jerusalem under Pompey in 63 BCE, metaphorically treating him as a dragon who had been sent by God to punish the Maccabees.
Solomon, a historical person as well as his father, king David, has asked the Creator God for understanding mind to govern His people, so that Solomon may discern between good and evil. Solomon was granted that. You will face many of his wise proverbs while flipping the cards, looking to complete a task assigned to you. And the tasks, by the way, are all related to building the temple of the Lord at Jerusalem - which David prepared the supplies for and Solomon built.
