21. Lilith Is The Reason For Unexplainable Woes
After God punished Lilith by ending the lives of her first 100 children, Lilith came to the conclusion that she is meant to cause sickness to infants. This is one reason why Jewish mothers used to protect their babies with amulets above their beds.
Other than the amulets, Lilith would spare any children who were named after angels. If not, she hovered over girls for 20 days and boys for eight days. Because of this myth, Lilith faced blame for the death of infants. She also became a symbol of sadness and unfortunate events.
