Direct or Possible Biblical References

Isaiah 34:14f

    Wildcats shall meet with hyenas,
         goat-demons shall call to each other;
    there too Lilith shall repose,
         and find a place to rest.
    There shall the owl nest
         and lay and hatch and brood in its shadow

Discussion: Does this passage refer to Lilith?

She is sometimes associated with other biblical characters, although she is not named anywhere else. So, for example (off the top of my head) she has been associated with the foolish woman in Proverbs (esp. ch. 9, and see also the Qumran poem Wiles of the wicked woman), and she has been identified with the queen of the Sabeans who raided Job's cattle (Job 1:14f).
