Question
Hi expert,can you tell me who is Lilith in Bible?

Answer
Lilith is not mentioned in traditional biblical texts, but more in the "lost" books, or those that were not included in the accepted canon (or in the usual Bible).  Lilith was the first wife of Adam. She would not submit to him, so God created Eve.  Lilith is often pictured as a demon.  You might want to look at references to Lilith online.  She comes up in paganism, especially feminist paganism.  You might also find Lilith in Satanist writings.  She might also be considered as a source of vampirism.  Joel
