In Zoharistic Qabalah, Eisheth Zenunim, or "the Woman of Whoredom", is a prince of the Qliphoth whom rules Sathariel, the order of the Qliphoth of Binah.[1] She is found in the Zohar 1:5a-b as isheth zennanim or qodeshah. She is known generally as one of the four angels of prostitution, who are the mates of the demon Samael. Her fellow succubi are Lilith, Naamah, and Agrat Bat Mahlat.

She is the youngest of Samael's wives and the ruler of the southern quarter, generally seen as being the lands of Egypt. The southern quarter is controversial, since it is assigned to a country instead of to a city, like the other quarters, (Salamanca, Rome and Damascus), the name of the ruler is unclear, identified as Mahalat or Rahab instead of Eisheth as the true ruler. She is a seductive devil and eternally strives to draw the unwary into the sins of the flesh. She then feeds on the souls of the fallen.
