Lilith in the Torah, Talmud and Midrash Updated July 27, 2016.
According to Jewish mythology, Lilith was Adam’s wife before Eve. Over the centuries she also became known as a succubus demon who copulated with men during their sleep and strangled newborn babies. In recent years the feminist movement has reclaimed her character by re-interpreting the patriarchal texts that portray her as a dangerous female demon in a more positive light.
This article discusses the character of Lilith in the Bible, Talmud and Midrash. For information about Lilith in Medieval and feminist writings visit: Lilith, from the Medieval Period to Modern Feminist Texts.
The Complete Jewish Bible
“Wildcats and hyenas will meet there; and billy-goats call to each other; Lilit [the night monster] will lurk there and find herself a place to rest.”
Lilith in the Bible
The legend of Lilith has its roots in the biblical book of Genesis, where two contradictory versions of Creation eventually led to the concept of a “first Eve.”
The first Creation account appears in Genesis 1 and describes the simultaneous creation of both male and female human beings after all of the plants and animals have already been placed in the Garden of Eden.
In this version man and woman are portrayed as equals and are both the pinnacle of God’s Creation.
The second Creation story appears in Genesis 2. Here man is created first and placed in the Garden of Eden to tend it. When God sees that he is lonely all the animals are made as possible companions for him. Finally the first woman (Eve) is created after Adam rejects all of the animals as partners. Hence, in this account man is created first and woman is created last.
These obvious contradictions presented a problem for the ancient rabbis who believed that the Torah was the written word of God and therefore it could not contradict itself. They therefore interpreted Genesis 1 so that it did not contradict Genesis 2, coming up with ideas such as the androgyne and a “First Eve” in the process. According to the theory of a “First Eve,” Genesis 1 refers to Adam’s first wife, while Genesis 2 refers to Eve, who was Adam’s second wife.

Eventually this idea of a “First Eve” was combined with legends of female “lillu” demons, who were believed to stalk men in their sleep and prey upon women and children. However, the only explicit reference to a “Lilith” in the Bible appears in Isaiah 34:14, which reads: “The wild cat shall meet with the jackals, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow, yea, Lilith shall repose there and find her a place of rest.”
Lilith in the Talmud and in Midrash
Lilith is mentioned four times in the Babylonian Talmud, though in each of these cases she is not referred to as Adam’s wife. BT Niddah 24b discusses her in relation to abnormal fetuses and uncleanness, saying: “If an abortion had the likeness of Lilith its mother is unclean by reason of the birth, for it is a child, but it has wings.” Here we learn that the rabbis believed Lilith had wings and that she could influence the outcome of a pregnancy.
BT Shabbat 151b also discusses Lilith, warning that a man should not sleep alone in a house lest Lilith fall upon him in his sleep. According to this and other texts, Lilith is a female succubus not unlike the lillu demons referenced above. The rabbis believed she was responsible for nocturnal emissions while a man was sleeping and that Lilith used the semen she collected to give birth to hundreds of demon babies. Lilith also appears in Baba Batra 73a-b, where a sighting of her son is described, and in Erubin 100b, where the rabbis discuss Lilith’s long hair in relation to Eve.
Glimpses of Lilith’s eventual association with the “First Eve” can be seen in Genesis Rabbah 18:4, a collection of midrashim about the book of Genesis. Here the rabbis describe the “First Eve” as a “golden bell” that troubles them in the night. “’A golden bell’… it is she who troubled me all night…Why do not all other dreams exhaust a man, yet this [a dream of intimacy takes place] does exhaust a man. Because from the very beginning of her creation she was but in a dream.”
Over the centuries the association between the “First Eve” and Lilith led to Lilith’s assuming the role of Adam’s first wife in Jewish folklore. Learn more about the development of Lilith’s legend in: Lilith, from the Medieval Period to Modern Feminist Texts.
Lilith, Goddess of the underworld
There are many deities worshipped by these ‘people‘, but one of the most significant ones to those who practise the black arts is a Goddess named Lilith. She has been quoted as being the first wife of Adam and also associated with Anu and the Annuaki and the mother of Samael., one of the demon angels praised even today in satanic rituals. According to Jewish lore, Samael was the serpent who tempted Eve and the father of Cain. Cain was said to have to looked not like the earthly beings, but like the heavily beings, and a child of the Lord… the Nephilim.
However, back to Lilith. A translation of her name is female night demon. According to some traditions she forced herself on Adam, and bore him many demon’s and spirits that were the plagues of mankind. To the Babylonians Lilith gave birth to the first vampire, and she has also been described as a consort to Lucifer. Lilith represents the dark side of the Goddess, as with the Masonic tradition good /evil, black/white
She has many symbols associated with her, such as the owl, the lily flower, which is named after her and this is also a widely used symbol of the Illuminati bloodlines in the form of the Fleur De Lis, which is found on flags and heraldry all over Europe, and also adorning the gates of the Whitehouse, which itself is built in the belly of an assortment of roads which make from the air the shape of a owl. Lilith is also associated with the deity known as Molech, to which a 40 foot stone monument stands at Bohemian Grove, where the worlds elite take part in amongst other things human sacrifice.
More Goddess symbolism is the capital letter M and the Number 40 She is also known as the Scarlett Woman, and so the colour red is associated with her, and the great whore of Babylon, the Great Mother and the Mother of Abominations – a creature associated with the underworld. But perhaps the most significant thing she has been associated with in many cultures is the stealing and killing of children, and it is this stealing (or abduction) of children which I wish to focus on.
Before I continue, I wish to make it clear that I am not accusing the families of the children I wish to write about of any misdemeanour. I have no evidence to suggest they were in any way involved. However that said, I do suggest that someone may well have been documenting the children’s lives and clearly movements to have enabled events to have unfolded in the pattern in which they did. I do also suggest that the use of trauma based mind control may have been used. This is usually a multi-generational abuse system, and due to its very nature, front ‘alters’ or ‘personalities’ will most likely not be aware of their programming. This would make the parents appear genuinely distraught people, having no idea of their alter personalities involvement in their children’s fate.

Tyre (Arabic: صور, Ṣūr; Phoenician: 𐤑𐤅𐤓, Ṣur; Hebrew: צוֹר, Tzor; Tiberian Hebrewצר, Ṣōr; Akkadian: 𒋗𒊒, Ṣurru; Greek: Τύρος, Týros; Turkish: Sur; Latin: Tyrus, Armenian Տիր [Dir]), sometimes romanized as Sour, is a city in the South Governorate of Lebanon. There were approximately 117,000 inhabitants in 2003. However, the government of Lebanon has released only rough estimates of population numbers since 1932, so an accurate statistical accounting is not possible. Tyre juts out from the coast of the Mediterranean and is located about 80 km (50 mi) south of Beirut. The name of the city means “rock“after the rocky formation on which the town was originally built. The adjective for Tyre is Tyrian, and the inhabitants are Tyrians. Tyre is an ancient Phoenician city and the legendary birthplace of Europa and Elissa (Dido)
11 Then the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.
12 The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor.
13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is interwoven with gold.…
…3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah. 4“I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know Me; Behold, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia: ‘This one was born there.’” 5 But of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in her”; And the Most High Himself will establish her.…
History of Tyre
Tyre appears on monuments as early as 1500 BC, and claiming, according to Herodotus, to have been founded about 2700 BC. The inhabitants of Tyre were leading merchants in the ancient world. The city of Tyre was particularly known for the production of a rare sort of purple dye, known as Tyrian purple, which in many ancient cultures was reserved for royal use.
In the time of King David (c. 1000 BC), a friendly alliance was entered into between the Hebrews and the Tyrians, who were long ruled over by their native kings.
Tyre was often attacked by Egypt, then by the Babylonian Nebuchadnezzar (586–573 BC), and it later fell under the power of the Persians. In 332 BC, the city was conquered by Alexander the Great, after a siege of seven months. During the seige Alexander connected two distinct cities about 1 km apart (one on an island and one on the coast) by a causeway. Tyre continued to maintain much of its commercial importance until the Christian era.
Somewhere near Tyre, Jesus healed a Syrian woman’s daughter after she gave him a clever reply about breadcrumbs. (Mk 7:24) A Christian church was founded in Tyre shortly after the martyrdom of Stephen (in Jerusalem) and St. Paul, on his return from his third missionary journey, spent a week in conversation with the disciples there. According to Irenaeus of Lyons, the female companion of the Gnostic magician Simon Magus came from Tyre.
Tyre was captured in 1124 during the First Crusade and became one of the most important cities of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem. It was part of the royal domain, although there were also autonomous trading colonies there for the Italian merchant cities. The city was the seat of the archbishop of Tyre, who reported to the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem.

Hiram Abiff Wiki
Hiram Abiff (also Hiram Abif or the Widow’s son) is the central character of an allegory presented to all candidates during the third degree in Freemasonry. Hiram is presented as the chief architect of King Solomon’s Temple, who is murdered in the Temple he designed by three ruffians during an unsuccessful attempt to force him to divulge the Master Masons’ secret passwords. The themes of the allegory are the importance of fidelity, and the certainty of death
Hiram, King of the realm of Tyre (today, in the modern nation of Lebanon), is credited in Samuel 5:11 and 1 Kings 5:1-10 for having sent building materials and men for the original construction of the Temple in Jerusalem. In the Masonic drama, “Hiram, King of Tyre” is clearly distinguished from “Hiram Abiff”. The former is clearly a king and the latter clearly a master craftsman. They can be confused in other contexts.
The Davidic Covenant
EXTRACT First, let us notice a commonly held belief. In the much-circulated booklet entitled “The United States and Britain in Prophecy,” the late Herbert W. Armstrong makes the following assertions:
David succeeded Saul. David sat on the ETERNAL’S THRONE. David’s son Solomon succeeded him, also sitting on the Eternal’s throne. “Then Solomon sat on THE THRONE OF THE ETERNAL as king instead of David his father” (I Chron. 29:23; see also II Chron. 9:8).
I wish here to impress another special point. Before Saul, the Eternal had been King over Israel. These human kings were sitting on the Eternal’s throne. The Eternal — “Lord” — is Jesus Christ who was with the Father before the world was (John 17:5 and 1:1-2, 14). Jesus is both the “root” AND the “offspring” of David (Rev. 22:16). Since he was the “root,” the throne was His before David was born. David merely sat upon the Eternal’s throne. Secondly, since Jesus was David’s lawful fleshly Son, this same throne shall once more become His right by inheritance, continuing David’s dynasty. And so, when Christ returns to earth, David’s throne will be doubly His right!
Now we come to a seemingly incredible fact — fantastic -almost unbelievable, but TRUE! While David was king, God made with him a perpetual covenant, unconditionally, which God cannot and will not break! This covenant is even more amazing, and less understood, than the unconditional covenant with Abraham!
I want you now to plant firmly in mind the specific nature and character of the covenant the Almighty made with David. For it is a vital link in the purpose and mission of Christ — an important KEY to Bible understanding!
In II Samuel 23:1, 5, we find: “Now these be the last words of David….God…hath made with me AN EVERLASTING COVENANT, ordered in all things, and SURE.” In other words, a covenant that shall endure forever and CANNOT FAIL!
Turn back to the seventh chapter of II Samuel for more specific details. God gave David this covenant promise at a time when David was much concerned over the Ark of the Covenant dwelling in a tent. David wanted to build a great temple at Jerusalem.
“And it came to pass that night, that the word of the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the Lord, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in?…When thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels [Solomon], and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, AND I WILL ESTABLISH THE THRONE OF HIS KINGDOM FOR EVER. I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. AND THINE HOUSE AND THY KINGDOM SHALL BE ESTABLISHED FOR EVER before thee: THY THRONE SHALL BE ESTABLISHED FOR EVER” (II Sam. 7:4-5, 12-16). SOURCE http://www.biblemysteries.com/library/queen.htm
