This is an Hebrew word, signifying somewhat evil. Hence, in Scripture, it is not unfrequently applied to wicked persons. Moses, when charging Israel not to follow vain and ungodly men, calls them sons of Belial. (Deuteronomy 13:13) The same by Hannah. (1 Samuel 1:16) So Abigail to David. (1 Samuel 25:25) In the language of the New Testament, Belial is another name for Satan. "What concord (saith Paul) hath Christ with Belial?" (2 Corinthians 6:15)
