He answereth truly of things Hidden or Secret. He causeth Diseases and cureth them. Again, he giveth great Wisdom and Knowledge in Mechanical Arts; and can change men into other shapes. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits. And his Seal is this, which is to be worn as aforesaid.”
From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford
“Marbas appears in the mind’s eye as a Lion, which beholds a shadow which is twisted and sharp looking. Marbas appears as any form desired, mostly as a shadowed man. This spirit reveals hidden aspects of the self through initiatory experience. As a cursing tool, one may evoke Marbas in the mind, and his 36 legions of spirits to manifest in the enemy as a disease. He may be used also to improve the ability to will immune system to work more efficiently, thus a beneficial spirit/Angelic familiar.”
From the Daemonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly
“Uncovering secrets, causing and healing illnesses, and mechanical arts. Healing and cursing (obviously). Invoke when studying mechanics of any time, including mechanics of the human body (i.e. medicine) to retain and learn more. Invoke Marbas to help you see truth in any situation..”
From Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (Liber officiorum spirituum) by Johann Weyer
“Marbas , also called Barbas , is a great president , manifesting himself in the form of a lion, the strongest , but upon request of the exorcist he can take the form of a human. He answers fully and truthfully revealing that which is hidden. He can bring disease and cure it and promotes knowledge and wisdom of mechanical arts. He can change men into other shapes and commands 30 legions under him .”

Priestess Akelta… Marbas is an incredible Demon to work with. I have asked for his aid in healing family members from serious illnesses and helping to cure my own ailments at times. I have worked with him for many years and knows that if a relative can be cured he will see it done, and if they cannot he will be honest and truthful.
