Lilith, a sinister character. .By Fabian Massa

Lilit

Pagan mythological elements in the Bible.
If we read Isaiah 34 in Jerusalem Bibles, Peshitta, Textual, Shell-Colunga, find some sinister characters in most versions omitted or replaced by animals such as goats and owls.

Consider the text:
 Judgment against Edom
12. The satyrs shall dwell in it, and it will not proclaim the royal nobles, and all her princes shall be annihilated.
13. Thorns up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof shall be a habitation of jackals and ostriches domain.
14. Feral cats and hyenas will join a satyr call the other; also there it will rest Lilit and find rest. Isaiah 34 [1] Jerusalem Bible.
In translations commonly used in evangelical churches (in Latin America the most popular is the RV60) translations have omitted to appoint the following daemons:
Lilit (replaced in translation by Owls, birds or night owls) the Latin Vulgate translates as Lamia term that can be translated as “vampire”.
Satyrs (replaced in the translation ibex, wild goats) The Latin Vulgate translates as “hairy” and is referring to the Fauns (Greco-Roman mythological beings).
I found the literal translation of Lilith and Satyrs in the following versions:
  •   Jerusalem Bible [2]
  •    Bible Peshitta
  •    Biblia Textual
  •   The Pearl-Colunga Lamia saves the word in Isa 34
Liber Isaiae, 34, Vulgate Latin [3].
12. Nobiles eius non erunt, nec proclamabunt regnum, et omnes eius erunt in nihilum princes.
13. Et orientur in domibus eius spinae, urticae eius et paliurus in munitionibus, et erit cubile struthionum Draconum et Easter.
14. Et occurrent hyaenae thoibus, et pilosus Clamat amicum ad suum; ibi invenit CUBAT lamia et sibi requiem.
Lilit
Lilit (or Lilith) is a legendary figure from Jewish folklore, Mesopotamian origin. According to the Jewish Kabbalah tradition, she was the first wife of Adam, created from the dust of the earth (Gen.1.26-27) and the subsequent whom God formed Eve from Adam’s rib.
According to legend, left Eden on his own initiative and was installed by the Red Sea, joining there with the demon (fallen angel) Asmodeus who became his lover, and other demons. Later, she became a witch who kidnaps children in their cribs at night and joins the men as a succubus (demon “feminine” sexually disturbing male) childbearing (the Lilim) with semen that males shed involuntarily when they are sleeping (nocturnal emission). She is represented in the guise of a beautiful woman with long curly hair, usually blond, sometimes winged.
The origin of Lilith seems to be in Lilitu and Lili Ardath two Mesopotamian female demons, related in turn to the evil spirit Lilu. In the names of this family of the word lil demons, which means ‘wind’, ‘air’ or ‘spirit’. The Jews exiled in Babylon led to its homeland belief in this evil creature whose name, adapted to the phonetics of Hebrew as לילית (Lilith), put in relation to the word Hebrew parónima ליל, laila, ‘night’.
Professor G. R. Driver believes that the Hebrew word (li · lith) is derived from a root that means “any kind of twisting motion or twisted object,” as the related word lái · lah (or laser · yil), which means “night”, suggests a ‘wrap or around the land [4] “.
The legend of Lilith is linked to a religious Jewish magical tradition: the habit of putting an amulet around the neck of newborn boys with the names of three angels (SNVI, Snsvi, Smnglof).
Figure and legend of Lilith and especially his rebellion towards Adam has led some feminists (radical feminism, feminism anarchist, etc..) To make it a symbol of sexual liberation and the struggle against patriarchy.
For its nocturnal nature, some have wanted to see her as the first vampire, so it is an icon of the goth subculture (darks), which enhances its beauty disturbing and sinister.
Lamia
ImageLamia (Greek Λάμια) is a female character from Greco-Roman mythology and folklore, and seductive asustaniños characterized as terrible. In the latter, is a history of the modern vampire. It is conceived as an individual character, but also as a generic name for a type of monsters (lamias). It is often associated with similar figures of Greek culture (empusa) or Hebrew (Lilith). In neohelénico folklore, Basque Bulgarian traditions found on lamias, heirs of the classical tradition.
Satyrs

Satyrs (Greek Σάτυροι, Satyroi) are male creatures-the satires are a later invention of the poets, who in Greek mythology accompanied Pan and Dionysus, wandering through forests and mountains. In mythology they are often associated with sexual appetite, and the painters of vases used to represent them with perpetual erections.
They are represented in several ways, the most common (and basically Roman) is a half-man half sheep, with pointed ears and horns on his head, abundant hair, flat nose, tail and goat permanent priapism. They often carry animal skins, panther (attribute, for example, Dionysus). Confounded Roman representations satyrs with fauns, who used to have goat legs. The confusion has persisted even in contemporary art, such as “Dancing Faun” Lequesne, which is rather a satyr.
Fauns

Faun (Latin Faunus, ‘the flattering’ Favere-of-or perhaps ‘the carrier’-of fari-) was, in Roman mythology, one of the most popular and oldest gods, the di indigetes, identified with the Greek Pan because of the similarity of their attributes.
Faunus was worshiped in two different roles: as the god of fields and shepherds, and as an oracular and prophetic divinity. As rustic deity, was a good spirit of the forest, plains and fields.
