(uh bad' duhn; to perish ) In the KJV Abaddon appears only in Revelation 9:11 as the Hebrew name of the angel of the bottomless pit, whose Greek name was Apollyon. Abaddon occurs six times in the Hebrew Bible ( Job 26:6 ; Job 28:22 ; Job 31:12 ; Proverbs 15:11 ; Proverbs 27:20 ; Psalm 88:11 ). The KJV and NIV translate Abaddon as “destruction,” while the NASB and RSV retain the word “Abaddon.” Abaddon appears in parallel with Sheol and death. It represents the dark side of existence beyond death. See Hell .
