    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:15

    ¿Y qu concordia tiene Cristo con Belial? ¿O qu parte el fiel con el infiel?

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And what
    concord hath Christ with Belial ? etc..] The word Belial is an Hebrew word, and is only used in this place in the New Testament, but often in the Old; this word is differently read and pronounced, some copies read it Beliar, and accordingly in the Ethiopic version it is Belhor, and by Jerom read Belvir; but he observes, that it is more rightly called Belial: in some copies it is Belias, and so Tertullian read it; and Jerom says, that most corruptly read it Belias, for Belial: some derive it from ylb , Beli, and hl[ , Alah, and signifies without ascent; one in a very low condition, of low life, that never rises up, and comes to any thing; to which Kimchi's etymology of the word seems to agree, who says f60 , that Belial is a wicked man, jylxy lbw hl[y lb , who does not succeed, and does not prosper: others say it signifies one that is lw[ ylb , Beli Ol, without a yoke, without the yoke of the law; so Jarchi explains children of Belial, in ( Deuteronomy 13:13) without yoke, who break off the yoke of God; and so say the Talmudists, children of Belial, are children that break off ym lw[ , the yoke of heaven (i.e. the law) from their necks; lawless persons, who are under no subjection to God or man: others f63 derive it from l[y , Jaal, and ylb , Beli, and so it signifies one that is unprofitable, does no good, and is good for nothing; and it is applied in Scripture to any wicked person, or thing; it is commonly rendered by the Chaldee paraphrast, a wicked man; and by Aquila and Suidas it is interpreted, an apostate, and so it is rendered here in the Arabic version; sometimes the corruption of nature is called Belial by the Jews f64 , than which nothing can be more contrary to Christ; it is also a name of the devil; by Hesychius, Beliar is interpreted a dragon, by which name the devil is sometimes called; and here the Syriac version is, what concord hath Christ with Satan? most interpreters by Belial understand the devil, who has cast off the yoke of obedience to God, and is unprofitable, yea, noxious and hurtful to men; between whom and Christ there is no concord, but a perpetual enmity; and as there is no concord between Christ personal, and Belial the devil, so what can there be between Christ mystical the church, which goes by the name of Christ, ( 1 Corinthians 12:12) and wicked men, the sons of Belial; who have cast away the law of the Lord, are not subject to the law of God, nor can they be, and are become unprofitable to themselves, and others? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel ? such have no part, and shall have no part or portion in one and the same thing; the believer's part and portion are God, Christ, and an eternal inheritance; the unbeliever's part and portion will be in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; and therefore what part, society, or communion, can they have with one another?

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-18 - It is wrong for
    believers to join with the wicked and profane. The wor unbeliever applies to all destitute of true faith. True pastors wil caution their beloved children in the gospel, not to be unequall yoked. The fatal effects of neglecting Scripture precepts as to marriages clearly appear. Instead of a help meet, the union brings snare. Those whose cross it is to be unequally united, without their wilful fault, may expect consolation under it; but when believers ente into such unions, against the express warnings of God's word, they mus expect must distress. The caution also extends to common conversation We should not join in friendship and acquaintance with wicked men an unbelievers. Though we cannot wholly avoid seeing and hearing, an being with such, yet we should never choose them for friends. We mus not defile ourselves by converse with those who defile themselves with sin. Come out from the workers of iniquity, and separate from their vain and sinful pleasures and pursuits; from all conformity to the corruptions of this present evil world. If it be an envied privilege to be the son or daughter of an earthly prince, who can express the dignity and happiness of being sons and daughters of the Almighty __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15.
    Concord (sumfwnhsiv). Only here in the New Testament. From sun together, fwnh voice. Primarily of the concord of sounds. So the kindred sufwnia, A.V., music, see on Luke xv. 25. Compare sumfwnov with consent, 1 Cor. vii. 5; and sumfwnew to agree, Matt. xviii. 19; Luke v. 36, etc.

    Belial (beliar). Beliar. Belial is a transcript of the Hebrew, meaning worthlessness or wickedness. The Septuagint renders it variously by transgressor, impious, foolish, pest. It does not occur in the Septuagint as a proper name. The form Beliar, which is preferred by critics, is mostly ascribed to the Syriac pronunciation of Belial, the change of l into r being quite common. Others, however, derive from Belyar, Lord of the forest. Here a synonym for Satan. Stanley remarks that our associations with the word are colored by the attributes ascribed to Belial by Milton ("Paradise Lost," B. 2.), who uses the word for sensual profligacy.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:15 {Concord} (sumfwnesis). Symphony. Late word from sumfwnew, only here and ecclesiastical writers, though sumfwnema in the papyri. {Belial} (belial). Transliteration of Hebrew word for worthlessness and applied to Satan (_Book of Jubilees_ 1.20) as here. Paul graphically sums up the contrast between Christ and Belial (Satan), the heads of the contending forces of good and evil. {Portion} (meris). The fourth of the words. Here by "unbeliever" (apistou) Paul means "disbeliever," not just an unconverted man who yet approves Christ.
