A demon and fallen angel said to be the enemy of Moses and an important devil in Hell's hierarchy.
Abezethibou is described as a one-winged demon in the Testament of Solomon, when Solomon summons Beelzebub for an interview, and the prince of the demons reveals that an angel named Abezethibou accompanied him when he fell from heaven. He also claims that all those imprisoned in Tartarus fall under Abezethibou's control. He opposed Moses and the Israelites during the Exodus from Egypt.
Abezethibou is believed to have secretly advised Pharaoh to decline when Moses asked him to let his people go. As this ultimately failed, he helped Pharaoh's magicians, Jannes and Jambres, create magic with the intention of harming Moses, and encouraged the Egyptians to chase the Israelites after they had been allowed to leave Egypt.
This story is contrary to the traditional Judeo-Christian view of the event based on the Book of Exodus, which contends that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh.
According to Jewish legend, Abezethibou drowned with the Egyptians in the Red Sea and is still imprisoned under a pillar at the bottom of the sea, though Beelzebub claims he will return for conquest.
