Naamah. (Art by Genzoman)

Naamah, also known as Nahemah, Na'amah or Erisitica Alusta is a figure in the Bible and Jewish mysticism. She is described as being an 'angel' of prostitution, and one of the succubi mates of the fallen archangel Samael in Zoharistic Qabalah.

Description

Naamah is a spirit of women’s sexual autonomy and sacred erotic rites. Naamah rules the ecstatic point where sex, spiritual ecstasy, and music intersect. Those who comprehend this point and seek to attain it are her constituency.

As she was mentioned as a demon, angel, fallen angel, succubus and human, it most likely that she can change her race at will. She is generally identified with the daughter of Lamech. This Naamah is a counterpart to the one who appears in Genesis, and she is regarded, like her mortal counterpart, as a patron of divination and music.

Her fellow succubi are LilithEisheth Zenunim, and Agrat Bat Mahlat, These four have been called the Grand Succubi and Queens of Lust. She is also known as one of the four angels of prostitution. She is also known as the mother of divination or The Charmer. Naamah's appearance is similar to Lilith, but Lilith is described as being more sensual, young and beautiful and as one that corrupted the fallen angels and their leader Samyaza.

History

Genesis

In the beginning Naamah was a human female created by God alongside Agrat and Eisheth to be potential mates for Adam in case he rejected Eve. When Adam proposed to all of them, they rejected Adam's advances with only Eve accepting. Naamah and her sisters then left Adam and Eve to their endeavours and were likely escorted out of the Garden by Michael.

Naamah and Lilith lived in the Red Sea coast where they were expelled by God. Right before the War in Heaven, Naamah was approached by Beelzebub as she laid by the Red Sea, who was smitten by her resulting in the two having a sexual union. Their union resulted in the rapid birth of Abezethibou who joined his father in the civil war. After the War in Heaven and the Fall of Man, Naamah became a queen of demons, alongside her sisters, as a consort to Satan of who her sisters also consort with, ruling over the Eastern quarter (Damascus).

Plagues of Mankind

According to the Zohar, after Cain kills AbelAdam separates from Eve for 130 years. During this time, Pizna and Naamah visit him and bear his demonic children, who became the Plagues of Mankind. She along with the other four Succubi cause epilepsy in children. She is also regarded as being the daughter of Lamech but how she became a demon is unclear. In another story from the Zohar, Naamah is said to have corrupted Samyaza and Azazel. Solomon, Noah, and possibly his son have also fallen under her spell as well. Her children include several of the Nephilim, Shedim, and Ashmodai.
