Abaddon, or Apollyon (a-bâd'dŏn or a-pŏl'yŏn). The former name is Hebrew and the latter Greek, and both signify the destroyer. Job 31:12; Revelation 9:11. He is the same as the "angel of the abyss," that is, the angel of death, or the destroying angel. Psalms 78:49. Abaddon frequently occurs in the Hebrew, and is translated "destruction," meaning often the world of the dead. Job 26:6; Job 28:22; Psalms 88:11; Proverbs 15:11.
