Who is Belial?
        (worthlessness). This word is applied by the sacred writers to such lewd, profligate, and vile persons as seem to regard neither God nor man. Deut 13:13; Jud 19:22, and 1 Sam 2:12. Hence the question of the apostle, 2 Cor 6:15, to the citizens of Corinth, which was remarkable for its lewdness and profligacy, has great force: "What concord hath Christ with Belial," the prince of licentiousness and corruption?
