Goetia - S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1904)
The Thirty-ninth Spirit is Malphas. He appeareth at first like a
Crow, but after he will put on Human Shape at the request of the
Exorcist, and speak with a hoarse Voice. He is a Mighty President
and Powerful. He can build Houses and High Towers, and can bring
to thy Knowledge Enemies’ Desires and Thoughts, and that which
they have done. He giveth Good Familiars. If thou makest a
Sacrifice unto him he will receive it kindly and willingly, but he
will deceive him- that doth it. He governeth 40 Legions of
Spirits, and his Seal is this, etc.
Pseudomonarchia daemonum - Johann Wier (1583)
Malphas is a great president, he is seene like a crowe, but being
cloathed with humane image, speaketh with a hoarse voice, be
buildeth houses and high towres wonderfullie, and quicklie
bringeth artificers togither, he throweth downe also the enimies
edifications, he helpeth to good familiars, he receiveth
sacrifices willinglie, but he deceiveth all the sacrificers, there
obeie him fourtie legions.
Dictionnaire Infernal - Collin de Plancy (1863)
A grand-president of hell who governs 40 legions, Malphas appears
as a raven, or in human form with a raucous voice. He builds
citidels and impregnable towers, breaks down enemy barricades, finds
good workers, gives familiars, and will receive sacrifices but
deceive the sacrificers.
