'*The story of Lilith*'

The story of Lilith

Queen of the demons is Lilith, long haired and winged. She is supposed to have been the first wife of Adam. She had been one of the wifes of Sammael, but of a wild, heroic and passionate nature she left her spouse and joined Adam. From their union issued the demons or Shedim, who rode about in the word as wicked spirits, persecute and plague men and bring thdm illnes, disease and other sufferings.

Lilith, like Adam, had been created from the dust of the earth. But as soon as she had joined Adam they began to quarrel, each refusing to be subservient and submissite to the other. "I am your lord and master," spoke Adam, "and it is your duty to obey me." But Lilith replied, "We are both equal, for we are both issued from dust, and i will not be submissive to you." And thus they quarrelled and none would give in. And when Lilith saw this she spoke the ineffable name of the Creator and soared up into the air. Thereupon Adam stood in a prayer before the creator and thus he spake, "O Lord of the Universe, the woman thou hast given me has fled from me."

And the Holy One, blessed be his name, sent at once three angels whose names were Senoi, Sansenoi and Sammangelof to fetch and bring Lilith back to Adam. He ordered them to tell her to return, and if he refused to obey then a hundred of her offspring would die daily. The three angels followed Lilith, and they found her in the midst of the sea, on the mighty waves.

They communicated to her the command of the Eternal, but she refused to return. And the angels spake to this rebel, this she-demon, "We will drown thee in the sea." But she made answer, "Know ye not that i have been created for the purpose of weakening and punishing little children, infants and babes. I have power over them from the day are born until they are eight days old if they are boys, and until the twentienth day if they are girls." And when the three angels hears her speech they wished to drown her by force. But she begged them to left her live, and they gave in. She swore to them in the name of the Living God that whenever she came and saw the names or images or faces of these three angels, Senoi, Sansenoi and Sammangelof upon an amulet or cameo in the room where there was an infant, she would not touch it. But becouse she did not return to Adam, every day a hundred of her own children or spirits and demons die.
