Golohab


Golohab (Hebrew GVLHB, "Burners") in Kabbalistic tradition are the Qlippoth or demonic powers associated with Geburah, the fifth Sephirah of the Tree of Life. They are called Zaphiel. Their traditional form is that of enormous hideous heads with open mouths, like volcanoes belching smoke and flames. Their cortex is Usiel, and archdemon is Asmodeus.

Golohab fittingly opposes Geburah, the Sephirah of the powers of severity, harshness, judgment. As these powers go forth to rule firmly but justly the Colohab attempt to destroy, or burn, these powers as well as what is ruled. Possibly it was during this turmoil that evil entered the world as some suspect. A.G.H.
