Belial (bç'li-al), worthlessness, hence lawlessness, wickedness. This word is properly applied by the sacred writers to such lewd, profligate, and vile persons, as seem to regard neither God nor man. Deuteronomy 13:13, A. V., but "base fellows," R. V. Judges 19:22; 1 Samuel 2:12. In the New Testament, "Belial" is used as an appellation of Satan, the power or lord of evil: "What concord hath Christ with Belial," the prince of licentiousness and corruption? 2 Corinthians 6:15.
