He will give his angels charge of you,
To guard you in all your ways.

of the wind. In the Testa-
ment of Solomon, Lix Tetrax is summoned to the presence of King
by Beelzebub, at the king’s
orders. The demon appears with his face high in the
air and his body crawling like a small snail. He raises
up clouds of dust and wind and hurls them at
Solomon until he is forced to stop by the king, who
seals the demon with his magical ring.
Lix Tetrax claims he is “the direct offspring of the
Great One,” perhaps a reference to Beelzebub, the
Prince of Demons. He lives at the tip of the horn of the
moon when it is in the south. He says he divides men,
creates whirlwinds, starts fires, sets fields on fire, and
renders households nonfunctional. He is especially
busy during the summertime. He has the power to heal
the “day-and-a-half fever” if invoked to do so. He is
thwarted by the angel Azael.
Solomon sentences Lix Tetrax to throw stones up to
the workmen at the heights of the Temple of
Jerusalem, under construction.
