"the cabbalists believe that some of the sacrifices burnt in the Temple were intended for Satan. For example, the seventy bullocks sacrificed during the seven days of the feast of Tabernacles, were supposedly offered to Satan in his capacity as ruler of the Gentiles, in order to keephim too busy to interfere on the eighth day, when sacrifice is made to God. Many other examples of the same can be given."
