Abaddon

ABADDON (a-băd'ŭn, Heb. ’ăvaddôn, ruin, perdition, destruction). The term is found once in the NT (Rev.9.11), where its Greek equivalent is Apollyon, the angel who reigns over the infernal regions. Its general meaning of “ruin, destruction” is variously translated in such passages as Job.26.6; Job.28.22; Job.31.12; Ps.88.11; Prov.15.11; Prov.27.20.
