With the sword of Geburah

Many things has been said about Geburah but none of them could ever show the greatness and fear that reside in that sphere. This is the only sphere that is quoted as one of the names of YHVH.
” The Torah was given to Moses and Israel from “the Mouth of the Gevurah.” It is most significant that the name of no other sefirah is used by our sages to connote God Himself, other than gevurah (In the Bible, God is referred to as “the netzach [eternity] of Israel” (Samuel 1 15:29), but not as netzach alone). Here, gevurah implies God’s essential power to contract and concentrate His infinite light and strength into the finite letters of Torah (especially those engraved on the tablets of the covenant, the Ten Commandments).” […]’The numerical value of Gevurah, 216, is 6 times 6 times 6. The tablets of the covenant that Moses received at Sinai were 6 by 6 by 6 hand-breadths.” ( On the other side, we have Golachab and Asmodeus that, as a demon, first appears in the Book of Tobit where is related how this ”evil spirit” feels in love with a girl named Sara and kills all of her husbands in their wedding night.(Tobit III 8,VI,14). Asmodeus also appears in The Testament of king Solomon:”I am called Asmodeus among mortals, and my business is to plot against the newly wedded, so that they may not know one another. And I sever them utterly by many calamities; and I waste away the beauty of virgins and estrange their hearts. . . . I transport men into fits of madness and desire when they have wives of their own, so that they leave them and go off by night and day to others that belong to other men; with the result that they commit sin and fall into murderous deeds.”(Testament of Solomon transl. in ”Jewish Quarterly Review, XI 20). “My constellation (is like an animal which) reclines in its den in heaven; some men call me the Great Bear, but others the Offspring of a Dragon. Moreover, a smaller constellation accompanies my constellation, for the high position and throne of my father is always in the sky. So do not ask me so many things, Solomon, for eventually your kingdom will be divided. This glory of yours is temporary. You have us to torture for a little while; then we shall disperse among human beings again with the result that we shall be worshiped as gods because men do not know the names of the angels who rule over us.” – Testament of Solomon 5:4-5
According to some sages he is the offspring of king Solomon and a succubus or one of the offspring’s of Adam and Naamah.
The spirits of Golachab are known to inspire anarchy, radical concepts and dictator regimes. Some theories claim that Golachab is Geburah reflexion and this is the point where Sitra Ahra was born. The anger of God gave birth to the Qlippothic Tree. Both Asmodeus and Astaroth are being operated by Thagirion – the Dark Self in a pleasure/pain kind of relationship where Asmodeus represents the pain and a darker aspect of Samael – in fact is also called ”son of Samael”.I shall talk about the (s&m) relationship between Asmodeus and Astaroth and their spheres in another article, giving the chance to all the readers to understand both realms.

For some sages (especially Rabbi Isaac ha-Kohen) Asmodeus has the ”younger Lilith” as companion while Samael -”the Grand Old Lilith”. Now we all know the connection between Samael and Gamaliel where ”Old Lilith” resides but there is no path (at least in the traditional Tree) between Golachab and Lilith. ”Now Asmodeus, even though he is called ‘the great king,” is subservient to Samael, and he is called ‘the great prince,’ when compared with the emanated powers below him. And Asmodeus is governed by him and serves him. The Grand Old Lilith is the mate of Samael, the great prince and the great king of all demons. Asmodeus, the king of the demons, has as mate Younger Lilith. The masters of this tradition discuss and point out many wonderful details concerning the form of Samael and the form of Asmodeus and the image of Lilith, the bride of Samael and of Lilith the bride of Asmodeus. Happy is he who merits this knowledge.” (Rabbi Isaac ha-Kohen ). In astronomy there is a deep connection between Mars and Moon, the yin/yang type of relationship and that could explain the riddle but again I couldn’t find any connection between the sphere of Mars and the sphere of Terra… For those that are willing to solve the riddle or have a better understanding of this sphere, you are free to mail the site.
