From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:
How to fix a Thief no that he must stand still. This grace should he pronounced on a Thursday in the morning before sunrise, under the canopy of Heaven.
Ye thieves, I hereby conjure ye, that ye may be obedient, the same as Christ was obedient to his Heavenly Father till he was put upon the cross; and ye shall stand still for me and not depart from under my eyes; in the name of the Trinity, I order ye by the power of God and the incarnation of Jesus Christ not to go from hence, + + + like Christ the Lord stood on the shores of Jordan, when St. John baptized him. Thus I conjure thee, horse and rider, that ye will stand for me and not leave from under my eyes, like Christ our Lord was steadfast, when fastened on the cross, and redeemed the patriarchs and all mankind from the powers of hell. Ye thieves, I bind ye, like Christ the Lord bound hell, thus are ye fettered, ye thieves, + + + with those works ye were bound and fixed, I again release you all.
