I will include some brief comments regarding two Yazidi texts after their presentation below.
Who Is Satan?* * * * * § * * * * *
The biblical name Satan (meaning adversary) most likely refers to the Sumerian Shaitan. The Hebrew name Azazel is most likely taken from the Canannite Deity Asiz. The "Abraham"ic prelates of course, have always demonized any Pagan reference to Divine Power aside from the deity that is alleged to have "divinely inspired" their "scriptures". Hence, the Xian invention known as bibledevil, the "Abraham"ic bogeyman, who is blamed as "the cause" and designated as the scapegoat (hence the Symbolic/Archetypical Baphomet) of anything bad that may end up happening, and who was the antithesis of their "good" "god", in their dualistic idiocy. Bibledevil is a construct fabricated using Shaitan and Lucifer, names of Pagan Deities, who were then ascribed positions in the alleged hierarchies of alleged "fallen" "angels" who decided they didn't want to put up with the BS of yahweh anymore. Well, who would want to put up with the BS of yahweh? I do not refer to any of the Dark Lords as "the devil", nor do I call myself a "devil-worshipper".
The "only true", "only way to be saved" "Abraham"ic texts have been demonstrated to be baseless myths and fables and nothing more. To assume that the primitive, violent barbarity (Numbers 31, etc.) of the OT is literally the "word" of a deity is of course, absurd. It is equally absurd to take the historically impossible pseudepigraphy of the NT as being "divinely inspired". Humphreys has put a lot of time and effort into debunking the exclusivist claims of "Abraham"ic religionism, and goes into depth with regard to the myths, incongruities, control-mongering, fables, frauds and forgeries at his website:

Skeptics' Annotated Scriptures and
Forgery in Christianity.
Alvin Boyd Kuhn wrote about the absurd literalizations of OT myths, colossal fabrications and dupery promulgated by Xianity in his 1943 masterpiece:
Who Is This King of Glory?. Books like Kuhn's have always been swept under the rug or destroyed , so that the lies of the hierocracies can be perpetuated. Unfortunately for the hierocracies, the Internet can not be burned. I use the word Satan as an honored title for those who stand against these big-religionist lies, deceit, guilt/shame/fear/control-mongering and who uphold the Principles of Freedom, Liberty and Individuality. For formalizing this movement, we owe LaVey a debt of gratitude.
Of course, anything based upon these "Abraham"ic texts or that literalizes the mythical human characters and fables in them (e.g. "Jesus", "Mary", the Xian "trinity", etc.) as "only true" "only way to be saved" alleged fact is equally erroneous as are any of the other mythical textual fabrications/inventions, such as "lost gospels", etc. And if all that is nonsense (including the absurdities regarding biblegod and his pathetic imp bibledevil in the book of Job), then IMO, any Xian/Hebraic "scripture" attempting to define biblical "satan" (bibledevil) is also nonsense (e.g. "Enoch", "The Apocalypse of "Abraham"", etc.). This BS has of course, gone on long enough.
But they are not stopping. They are intent on bringing the entirety of the Human Race under their abysmal, wretched bondage, and dogma that has never been true. They will continue to engage in lies, misogyny, intimidation, FGM/MGM, pogroms, barbarity, butchery, terror and murder...... just like they always have. Acharya S goes into this horror on her webpage at Acharya S ~ Theocracy Her scholarship is impeccable. Those of us who love Liberty realize that it is an eternal struggle to preserve it from deranged religionists and statists.
The quick proof of the fallacies of "Abraham"ic claims lies here: The Pagan Akkadian King Hammurabi, who was the 6th King of Babylon in the First Dynasty, (reigned from 1792 BCE - 1750 BCE) wrote down his Law, and inscribed it in stone. One of these, inscribed in cunneiform Akkadian language, was a piece of black diorite about 7.4 feet tall. It now resides in the Louvre, in Paris, France. (see: Hammurabi Stele ) Christians have claimed the that Bible is the "inerrant word of God", but in Exodus 21:24 ~KJV we read: "eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot" This demonstrates beyond doubt that the Christian claims that the Bible is the "word" of the "Abraham"ic deity are false, because King Hammurabi wrote his Law in c. 1760 BCE and Hammurabi LAW 196 states: "If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out." And in LAW 200 we read: "If a man knock out the teeth of his equal, his teeth shall be knocked out." This Law of Hammurabi was stated as to have been revealed by Anu, Bel, Shamash and Marduk, who who were Pagan Gods. The Biblical text copied from the Hammurabi Law Code in Exodus 21:24 was also copied into the Qur'an where it appears in Sura 005:045 (Yusuf Ali) "We ordained for them 'Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth...." Neither text is therefore the original "revelation" of the "Abraham"ic deity. And as we know, religion was invented by men.
Satanism, as well as Paganism, have been demonized by deluded patriarchal "Abraham"ic fundies and we have been accused of all sorts of heinous crimes such as animal and infant sacrifice, "eating babies", unbridled debauchery, and all sorts of other nonsense. Granted, there are some instances out there of crimes against property, vandalism, etc., done by "Satanists". But these imbeciles are not truly of us. It is time for every Satanist who is an "Abraham"ic apostate, to forget forever the dogmatic drivel that was pounded into your head. The bible has no credibility whatsoever, but what do we see all over the place? Representations of monstrosities fabricated by deluded, superstitious religionist fools from the dark ages and other asinine depictions from over the centuries (e.g. "Dictionnaire" Infernal (1863)), including "art" work of ugly, damned wretches with bat's wings, sea monster types, and other grotesqueries having all of the charm and bestiality of orcs from Mordor.
Satanism and Dark Paganism are of course, Left-Hand Path positions. I personally define the Left-Hand Path as the Path of the Individual and his or her Growth in Gnosis and Ascent to Godhood in the Realization of his or her own Personal Divinity. I define the right-hand path as the path of the herd-mentality, I.E. organizational dogmas, and required conformity to said dogmas, traditions, etc., in emphasis on the group and its label as opposed to Individual Free Thought.
IMO, the Left Hand Path is about Individual Ascension to Immortality & Personal Godhood in Truth, Strength and Fortitude while Being in Vibratory Sympathy with The Living Principles/Sentiences, Beauty and Power of The Natural Order. It is not about ugliness, hideousness, unbridled hedonism or lack of Honor. It is not about having your Individuality absorbed into the Universe and lost. And it certainly is not reverse/opposite Xianity.

Lend us Thy Strength
Thou art the most Beautiful of all.
Blazing Lord of Canaan
May we pass Thy Tests.
Victory is Thine.

~ Dark Lord of Sumer
I was, am now, and shall have no end. I exercise dominion over all creatures and over the affairs of all who are under the protection of my image. I am ever present to help all who trust in me and call upon me in time of need. There is no place in the universe that knows not my presence. I participate in all the affairs, which those who are without call evil because their nature is not such as they approve. Every age has its own manager, who directs affairs according to my decrees. This office is changeable from generation to generation, that the ruler of this world and his chiefs may discharge the duties of their respective offices everyone in his own turn. I allow everyone to follow the dictates of his own nature, but he that opposes me will regret it sorely.
No god has a right to interfere in my affairs, and I have made it an imperative rule that everyone shall refrain from worshipping all gods. All of the books of those who are without are altered by them; and they have declined from them, although they were written by the prophets and the apostles. That there are interpolations is seen in the fact that each sect endeavors to prove that the others are wrong and to destroy their books.
To me truth and falsehood are known. When temptation comes, I give my covenant to him that trusts in me. Moreover, I give council to the skilled directors, for I have appointed them for periods that are known to me. I remember necessary affairs and execute them in due time. I teach and guide those who follow my instruction. If anyone obey me and conform to my commandments, he shall have joy, delight, and comfort.
I requite the descendants of Adam, and reward them with various rewards that I alone know. Moreover, power and dominion over all that is on earth, both that which is above and that which is beneath, are in my hands. I do not allow friendly association with other people, nor do I deprive them that are my own and that obey me of anything that is good for them. I place my affairs in the hands of those whom I have tried and who are in accord with my desires. I appear in diverse manners to those who are faithful and under my command.
I give and take away; I enrich and impoverish; I cause both happiness and misery. I do all this in keeping with the characteristics of each epoch. And none has a right to interfere with my management of affairs. Those who oppose me I afflict with disease; but my own shall not die like the sons of Adam that are without. None shall live in this world longer than the time set by me; and if I so desire, I send a person a second or third time into this world or into some other by the transmigration of souls.
I lead to the straight path without a revealed book; I direct aright my beloved and chosen ones by unseen means. All my teachings are easily applicable to all times and all conditions. I punish in another world all who do contrary to my will.
Now the sons of Adam do not know the state of things that is to come. For this reason, they fall into many errors. The beasts of the earth, the birds of heaven and the fish of the sea are all under the control of my hands. All treasures and hidden things are known to me; and as I desire, I take them from one and bestow them upon another.
I reveal my wonders to those who seek them, and in due time my miracles to those who receive them from me. But those who are without are my adversaries, hence they oppose me. Nor do they know that such a course is against their own interests, for might, wealth and riches are in my hands, and I bestow them upon every worthy descendant of Adam. Thus the government of the worlds, the transition of generations, and the changes of their directors are determined by me from the beginning.
I will not give my rights to other gods. I have allowed the creation of four substances, four times and four corners; because they are necessary things for creatures.
The books of Jews, Christians and Muslims, as of those who are without, accept in a sense, i.e., so far as they agree with and conform to my statutes. Whatsoever is contrary to these, they have altered; do not accept it. Three things are against me and I hate three things. But those who keep my secrets shall receive the fulfillment of my promises. Those who suffer for my sake I will surely reward in one of the worlds.
It is my desire that all my followers unite in a bond of unity, lest those who are without prevail against them. Now, then, all ye who have followed my commandments and my teachings, reject all the teachings and sayings of such as are without.
I have not taught these teachings, nor do they proceed from me. Do not mention my name nor my attributes, lest ye regret it; for ye do not know what those who are without may do.
O yea that have believed in me, honor my symbol and my image, for they remind you of me. Observe my laws and statutes. Obey my servants and listen to whatever they may dictate to you of the hidden things. Receive that, that is dictated, and do not carry it before those who are without, Jews, Christians, Muslims and others; for they know not the nature of my teaching. Do not give them your books, lest they alter them without your knowledge. Learn by heart the greater part of them, lest they be altered.

The Qu'ret Al-Yezid
Revelation of Melek Ta'us
Wherefore, it is true that my knowledge encompasses the
Very truth of all that is,
And my wisdom is not separate from my heart,
And the manifestation of my descent is clear unto you,
And when it is revealed to the children of Adam it will
Be seen by all.
And many will tremble thereby.
All habitations and desert spaces are indeed of my own creation, set forth,
All fully within my strength, not that of the false gods;
Wherefore I am he that men come with their rightful worship,
Not the false gods of their books, wrongly written;
But they come to know me, a peacock of bronze and gold,
Wings spread over Kaaba, temple, and church, not to be overshadowed.
And in the secret cave of my wisdom it is known that there is no god but myself,
Archangel over all the host, Melek Ta'us.
Knowing this, who dares deny?
Knowing this, who dares fail to worship?
Knowing this, who dares worship the false gods of the Koran and bible?
Know that who knows me will I cast into paradisiacal gardens of my pleasure!
But the Yezid who knows me not will I cast into affliction.
Say then, I am the only and exalted archangel;
And I make prosperous whom I will,
And I enliven whom I will.
Say then, I alone am to be praised from the Towers of Lalish, and from the mountain of Ararat to the western sea.
Say then, let the light of knowledge flash forth from the ziarahs,
Flash forth from the river of Euphrates to the hiddeness of Shamballah.
Let my Sanjak be carried from its safe place into the temple,
And let all the clans of Yezid know of my manifestation,
Even Sheikan, and Sinjar, and Haliteyeh, and Malliyeh, and Lepcho,
And the Kotchar who wander among the heathen."
The first question that arises is: 'are these Satanic?' In the sense of being adversarial to "Abraham"ic traditions, I would say yes, they are. (AJ 3:3). Were they written by the biblical "satan" (bibledevil)? Well, since I don't believe there is a bibledevil, my answer would be no. Of course, anything contrary to any of the myraid "only true" "Abraham"ic dogmas is...
...of "the devil" and thus they are considered to be "devil-worshippers".
There would appear to be a contradiction between AJ 3:1 which states there is no revealed book, and the QAY, which states that it is a 'Revelation of Melek Ta'us'. Well, which is it? The texts repeatedly make reference to the sons of a mythical human named "Adam". Why would the God Of This World make reference to inconsequential literalizations of a mythical human character in Hebrew fables? The QAY makes reference to "worship". The Dark Lord does not demand worship. I don't believe in "fallen angels", "cherubim", "seraphim", "archangels" and other "species" of "angels", etc.
The Yazidis have their own traditions and religion, and they have been mercilessly persecuted over the years. Much of their secret tradition is oral, and I think that to assume that what we have here is complete, is a mistake. Certain verses could be similar to the Sentiments of the Dark Lord, and I think AJ 4:3 ~ "....It is my desire that all my followers unite in a bond of unity, lest those who are without prevail against them....." certainly bears consideration. After all, back-biting and in-fighting have never done any good for the LHP, have they?

Reference: GATE 2 - POLRIT
(They open that which is closed.)
Having successfully navigated the tunnels of confusion after his early Training, the Traveler, here depicted as the Hermit, stands at a doorway entrance, holding two keys in his left hand, Signifying the Left Hand Path. One Key is silver and the other is gold, Symbolizing Polaric and Internal/External Balance. The door knocker is a circle, symbolizing the Infinite. A lantern sits on the ground, which is the Symbol of the Ever-Burning Lamp of Gnosis and the Light-Bearer. A dog stands at the door, but the dog may not enter. He has no Keys. Upon entry, the hermit is awarded his staff, Symbolic of the Ouroboros, and Mastery of the Dragon. ~ LCF
