Belial
Belial is derived by some from {beli,} not, and {l,} over, i
e., one so proud and envious as not to bear a superior; by others, from {beli,} not, and {ol,} a yoke, i
e., a lawless, ungovernable person, [andres paranomoi,] "lawless men," as the LXX render. It is, however, more probably derived from {beli,} not, and {yl}, profit, i
e., a worthless person,
good for nothing to himself or others, and capable of nothing but mischief.* are gone.
