A-Z: General definitions: Belial


The King James Version translates Belial as 'the wicked' and it appears to be the name of some specific malevolent power. In the New Testament the word occurs once when Paul declares the mutual irreconcilability of Christ and Belial, who thus appears to be equated with Satan (2 Corinthians 6:15; Nahum 1:15).


Hebrew: 'useless' or 'worthless'.
