Samael (Sammael, Satanil, Samil, Satan, Seir, Salmael) - A combination of ”sam” meaning poison and ”el” meaning angel. In rabbinic literature, he is chief of the Satans and the angel of death. In the Secrets of Enoch (Enoch II) he is the prince of demons and a magickian. Samael has been regarded as both evil and good; as one of the greatest and as one of the foulest spirits operating in Heaven, on the earth, and in Hell. On the one hand he is said to be chief ruler of the 5th Heaven (in Jewish legendary lore he usually resides in the 7th Heaven), one of the seven regents of the world served by two million angels; on the other hand, he is ”that great serpent with twelve wings that draws after him, in his fall, the solar system.” Samael is also the angel of death who God sent to fetch the soul of Moses. Talmud Yalkut I, 110, speaks of him as Esau’s guardian angel. Sotah 10b speaks of Samael as Edom’s Sar (angelic prince guardian). In the Sayings of Rabbi Eliezer, he is charged with being the one (in the guise of a serpent) who tempted Eve, seduced her, and became the father of Cain. In The Zohar, he is the dark angel who wrestled with Jacob at Peniel, although Michael, Uriel, Metatron and others have been identified as this antagonist. Samael is also equated with the satan who tempted David to number Israel (I Chronicles 21). The Holy Kabbalah characterizes him as the ”severity of God” and lists him as the 5th of the archangels of the world of Briah. Here he corresponds to the sefira Geburah. Cornelius Agrippa equates him with the Greek god Typhon. In The Ascension of Isaiah IV, 7, this passage occurs: ”And we ascended to the firmament, I and he [Isaiah and his escorting angel], and there I saw Sammael and his hosts, and there was great fighting therein and the angels of Satan were envying one another.” It appears that Samael and Satan are interchangeable.

Talmud Hagiga 13b says his head reaches Heaven (which is said slao of Israfel and of the Greek giant Typhon). In The Greater Key of Solomon, he is designated ”the left-hand feminine cherub of the ark.” In the liturgy for the Feast of Tabernacles, he is credited with gathering the prayers of the faithful, making a garland of such prayers, and then ”adjuring them to ascend as an orb to the supreme King of Kings.” In Enoch 3, he is the ruler of the 6th Heaven (makon) but, in The Zohar he is ”chief of the 7th Heaven.” According to Islamic lore, he dwells in the 4th Heaven.

Shekinah (Schechinah, Matrona shachan) - “to reside” The female manifestation of God in man, the divine inwohnung (indwelling). Also the ”bride of the Lord,” compatible with the Shakti of Shiva. The expression ”the Shekinah rests” is used as a paraphrase for ”God dwells.” In Genesis 48:16 ”the Angel which redeemed me from all evil,” uttered by Israel (Jacob), applies to the Shekinah, according to The Zohar. In the New Testament sense, the Shekinah is the glory emanating from God, His effulgence. The passage in Matthew 18:20 is translated (The Dictionary of the Bible) to rad: ”when two sit together and are occupied with the word of the Law, the Shekinah is with him.” As interpreted in the Midrah Rabba, Michael is the glory of the Shekinah. The Shekinah is the liberating Angel, manifesting in her male aspect as Metatron. In the cabala, she is the 10th sefira Malkuth, otherwise the Queen. The creation of the world, was according to The Zohar, the work of the Shekinah. Here, too, the Shekinah is spoken of as ”abiding in the 12 holy chariots and the 12 supernal hayyoth.” Elsewhere in The Zohar she is mentioned as a messenger from on high who, when she first appeared to Moses, was called an angel, just as she was called by Jacob. In The Zohar she is ”the way of the Tree of Life” and the ”angel of the Lord”. Maimonides in Moreh Nebuchim regarded the Shekinah as an intermediary between God and the world or as a periphrasis for God. The Shekinah has been identified with the Holy Ghost and the Epinoia of the Gnostic Valentinus. Of her it has been said ”Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way” (Exodus 23:20) which has also been applied to Metatron and John the Baptist, ”the forerunner angel.” According to legend, Aaron died by a kiss from the Shekinah, In the same source (The Legends of the Jews II), it is related that Abraham caused the Shekinah to come down from the 2nd Heaven. The Talmud tells us that when God drove Adam out of the earthly paradise, the Shekinah remained behind ”enthroned above a cherub under the Tree of Life, her splendor being 65,000 times brighter than the sun,” and that this radiance ”made all upon whom it fell exempt from disease”; and, further, that then ”neither insects nor demons could come nigh unto such to do them harm.” An account somewhat at variance with this is given in Major Trends in Jewish Mysticism and Jewish Gnosticism, Merkabah Mysticism, and Talmudic Tradition, where it is reported that the Shekinah was sent into exile on Adam’s fall and that ”to lead the Shekinah back to God and to unite her with Him is the true purpose of the Torah.” A reference to the dwellin place of the Shekinah occurs in Canticles Rabba 6: ”The original abode of the Shekinah was among the tahtonim [that is, among the lower ones: human beings, earth]. When Adam sinned, it [the abode] ascended to the 1st Heaven. With Cain’s sin, it ascended to the 2nd Heaven. With Enoch’s, to the 3rd. With the generations of the flood, to the 4th. With the generation of the Tower of Babel. To the 5th. With the Sodomites, to the 6th. With the sin of the Egyptians in the days of Abraham, to the 7th.” Corresponding to these, there arose seven righteous men who brought the Shekinah to earth again. They were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Levi, Kehath (Levi’s son and Moses’ grandfather), Amram, and Moses. A haggadah about the Shekinah is that she hovers over all conjugal unions between Jewish husbands and wives and blesses such unions with her presence. In this reference, she could be identified with the Roman goddess Petunda, presider over the marriage couch.
