Belial

The Hebrew word signifies 'worthless, lawless,' and is not a proper name, but is used as a personification of evil; thus we have 'son of Belial, daughter of Belial,' etc. Deuteronomy 13:13 ; Judges 19:22 ; 1 Samuel 1:16 ; 1 Samuel 25:17,25 ; etc. In the N.T. it is put in contradistinction to Christ as if it meant Satan, 2 Corinthians 6:15 : it is there βελίαρ.
