1 Kings 21:10  (King James Version)
And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die.
 


two men
Deuteronomy 19:15 ; Matthew 26:59 Matthew 26:60 ; Acts 6:11

sons of Belial
Deuteronomy 13:13 ; Judges 19:22

Thou didst blaspheme
Some, with Parkhurst, would render the original, {bairachta elohim wamailech,} "Thou hast blessed the gods and Molech;" a sense, however, which seems extremely forced, and is not acknowledged by any of the ancient versions, though the LXX. and Vulgate render {bairachta} by [eulogese,] {benedixit,} "blessed." It is no unusual thing for a word to have opposite
senses. Exodus 22:28 ; Leviticus 24:15 ; Matthew 26:59-66 ; John 10:33 ; Acts 6:13
