巴力西卜

惡魔
(重定向自別西卜
天路歷程》中的巴力西卜

巴力西卜(Beelzebub 或 Beel-Zebub),又譯為別西卜,天主教譯為贝耳则步,意思為“蒼蠅王”,非利士人的神,新約聖經中稱別西卜為「魔王」,聖經七大罪的暴食。傳說祂原本是熾天使中聖歌隊的成員,在創世紀戰爭中戰敗而墮落。惡魔學裡認爲他是地獄的最高統帥,約翰·彌爾頓將其描繪成是外貌威嚴的智者,是最強大的墮天使

語源编辑

“Beelzebub”一詞來自《列王紀》(2 Kings 1:2–3, 6, 16),希伯來聖經原文作“Ba'al Zəbûb”,是非利士人崇拜的神。 一般的说法是“Ba'al Zəbûb”直译即“苍蝇王”[1][2][3][4][5],这可能与非利士人崇拜蒼蠅的習俗有關[6]。烏加里特人也認為別西卜(烏加里特語:Baal)會驅使蒼蠅、使人得病[6]

“Beelzebul”一詞則來自《所罗门之约》,這裡它作為魔王(Prince of Demons)和原天使統領出現。這可能是路西法的另一種稱呼。[7]

此外,別西卜還也見於聖經的其他章節中,如《馬太福音》第十二章:

文學中的形象编辑

失樂園》中寫著別西卜由熾天使墮天後,在撒旦名號的爭奪戰之中有很高的聲望,因此他的名氣只在路西法之後,地位就等同於地獄宰相,別西卜有著統領眾鬼的權力,所以被稱為鬼王,而蒼蠅王的形態亦是很有名的。

For etymological reasons, Baal Zebub must be considered a Semitic god; he is taken over by the Philistine Ekronites and incorporated into their local cult.

Βεελζεβούβ and Βεεζεβούλ W-S. §5, 31, cp. 27 n. 56) Beelzebul, orig. a Philistine deity; the name בַּעַל זְבוּב means Baal (lord) of those who are capable of flying (4 Km 1:2, 6; Sym. transcribes βεελζεβούβ; Vulgate Beelzebub; TestSol freq. Βεελζεβούλ,-βουέλ).

The variant reading Beelzebub (Syriac translators and Jerome) reflects a long-standing tradition of equating Beelzebul with the Philistine deity of the city of Ekron mentioned in 2 Kgs 1:2, 3, 6, 16. Baalzebub (Heb ba˓al zĕbûb) seems to mean "lord of flies" (HALAT, 250, but cf. LXXB baal muian theon akkarōn, "Baal-Fly, god of Akkaron"; Ant 9:2, 1 theon muian).

On the basis zebub, 'flies', the name of the god was interpreted as 'Lord of the flies'; it was assumed that he was a god who could cause or cure diseases.
