In demonology, Xezbeth (alternately Shezbeth) is a demon of lies and legends, who invents untrue tales. Its name in Arabic is "The Liar" (Arabic: الكذّابal-Kadhāb).[1]

According to French occultist Collin de Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal (1853), it is impossible to count the number of its disciples.[2]
