Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

לִילִית f. prop. nocturna (from לַיִל, with the adj. term. fem. ־ִית), a nocturnal spectre, which had, according to the rabbins, the form of a beautiful woman, and lay wait for children by night. [All this is utterly absurd when thus connected with the nature of something real mentioned in Scripture; what it is, may be doubtful.] Like this are the Greek and Roman fables about the woman Ἔμπουσα, about the ὀνοκένταυροι (see Arist. Ran. 293; Creuzer, Comment. Herod. page 267), the Lamiæ, the Striges, and the Arabian fables about the Ghûles (الغول, الغولة), i.e. female monsters inhabiting deserts, and tearing men in pieces. Compare other names of spectres, עֲלוּקָה, שְׁעִירִים. Isaiah 34:14. More may be seen in Bochart, in Hieroz. vol. ii. page 831; Buxtorf, in Lexicon Ch., and Talmud. page 1140, and in my Comment. on Isaiah 13:22, 34:14. [It is really lamentable that any one could connect the word of God with such utter absurdity; many understand the nocturnal creature spoken of to be simply the screech owl.]
