  • a fallen angel
  • from Davidson, "in rabbinic lore, a great angel who, with the aid of Zakun, led 184 myriads of spirits to snatch away the prayer of Moses before it could reach God. For this attempt at interference with the divine will, the 2 angels were punished with '60 blows (lashes) of fire.' Rf Ginzberg, The Legends of the Jews III, 434. Bamberger, Fallen Angels, p. 138, cites another form of the same legend wherein it is Sammael who metes out the punishment on Lahash by 'binding him with fiery chains, flogging him with 70 stripes of fire, and expelling him from the divine presence.'"
