Mastema

Mastema

Mastema
is a fallen angel who persecutes in Hebrew folklore. He tried to kill Moses to prevent him from asking Pharaoh to set his people free. He also taught the Egyptian magicians feats of conjuring, such as turning a rod into a snake, to undermine the feats of Moses. In the Book of Jubilees, it was Mastema, not God, who tempted Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. Mastema, the accusing angel, is often said to be Satan.

In the Zadokite Fragments and Dead Sea Scrolls, he is the angel of disaster, the Father of all Evil, and a flatterer of God. According to the Book of Jubilees, Mastema is the chief of the demons engendered by The Watchers with women. When God is ready to destroy all these demons after the Flood, Mastema intervenes, beseeching God to allow him to retain and control one tenth of these demons in order to exercise his authority because they are "intended to corrupt and lead astray before my judgement because the evil of the sons of men is great". So Mastema is the tester of humans with God's permission.
