Gamaliel (Hebrew GMLIAL, “Recompense of God”) in¬†Kabbalistic¬†tradition are the¬†Qlippoth¬†or demonic powers associated with¬†Yesod, the ninth¬†Sephirah¬†of the Tree of Life. They also are called the Obscene Ones. In their traditional appearance they are seen as bull shaped men linked together. The cortex is Ogiel, and archdemon is¬†Lilith.

Gamaliel is opposite of Yesod, place of final forms that become matter in Malkuth, because it is the realm of Mishappen and polluted images that produce vile results. The outer form is the order of Ogiel. All is under the great female demon Lilith, thought by some to be the mother of demons produced from sperm of nocturnal emissions which she and her sisters caused men to have. A.G.H.
