Lilit and Naamah

363) The Torah is warning people, “And you will be sanctified and be holy.” If a person is holy, he is not afraid of Lilit because then the Creator summons the three holy angels, they guard that child and she cannot harm him. It is written about it, “No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent” because “He will give His angels charge over you to guard you.”

364) If a person is not holy and draws spirit from the side of Tuma’a, Lilit comes and laughs with that child. If she kills him, she clings to the spirit of the child and never moves from him.

Those other ones, to whom the spirit from the side of Tuma’a is not drawn, when she kills them, those three holy spirits come before her and take that spirit away from her, since they were not on the side of Tuma’a. But why does she rule so as to kill them? It is when a person did not sanctify; this is why she kills them. But he did not intend to be defiled and he was not defiled. This is why she could control the body and kill him, but not the spirit because the spirit is brought before the Creator.

365) Sometimes Naamah goes out to the world to be warmed by people, and a person is in connection of passion with her, awakens from his sleep, unites with his wife and sleeps with her. And his desire is still in that passion that he had in his dream.

In that case, the son that he bears comes from the side of Naamah because it is in her passion. And when Lilit comes out and sees him, she knows it—that he came from the side of Naamah and she connects to him and raises him as the other sons of Naamah. She is with him many days and does not kill him because he is from her side.

366) This is a person who is blemished each new moon, but she never despairs from him because with each new moon in the world, on the beginning of the month, Lilit comes out and visits all the children that she raises, and she plays with them. At that time that person is flawed. Happy are the righteous who are sanctified by the holiness of the king. It is written about them, “And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to bow before Me.”

367) King Solomon revealed these words in the book of Ashmadai, king of the demons. There were 1,405 kinds of Tuma’a in him, by which people are defiled. Ashmadai disclosed it to King Solomon.

368) Woe unto people for they are all obtuse and blind, and do not know nor hear or notice how they are in the world. But there is counsel and healing before them, yet they do not look because people can be saved only by the counsel of the Torah, as it is written, “If there is among you any man who is not pure because of a nocturnal emission, he will go outside the camp.” “Who is not pure” means that his birth was extended by the spirit of Tuma’a. Nocturnal emission means while he was dreaming in his sleep.

It is also written in the Torah, “And you will be sanctified and be holy, for I am the Lord your God,” and then ho harm will come to him.
