(Hebrew: baal, lord; zebub, a fly)

A divinity worshiped by the Philistines at Accaron, as the god of flies, identified with the "demon" in the Gospels. In Luke 11, he is called chief of the demons. The Greek version of the New Testament has Beelzebul (prince of filth), perhaps an intentional change of the original word.
