In Zoharistic Qabalah, Naamah or Nehemoth is a fallen angel, one of the succubus mates of the demon Samael.


Etymology

Naamah (Hebrew: נעמה‎) means pleasant; it refers either to her virtuous nature (pleasing to God (YHVH)) or to a penchant for idolatry (singing pleasant songs to pagan idols). In Gnostic Kabbalah, she is called Nahemah and is the qliphah corresponding to the sephirah Malkuth.


Rank

The name Naamah appears in the Hebrew Bible as the daughter of Lamech, sister of Tubal-Cain and half-sister of Jubal. (Genesis 4:22) She may or may not also be the wife of Noah or his son Ham. (See: Wives aboard the Ark)

Naamah appears in the Zohar as one of the four angels of prostitution, the mates of the demon Samael. Her fellow succubi are Lilith, Eisheth Zenunim, and Agrat Bat Mahlat. She is generally identified with the daughter of Lamech. She is also considered, as a patron of divination and music.


Myth

After Cain killed Abel, Adam separated from Eve for 130 years. During this time, two female spirits, Lilith and Naamah would visit Adam and engaged in sexual intercourse with him until they bear his children, who became known as the Plagues of Mankind. (Zohar 3:76b-77a)

Also according to Zohar, Naamah corrupted Uzza and Azael. Naamah is often named as the mother of the demon Asmodai, the consort of the Lesser Lilith (Lilith and Samael's daughter).
