[See:: Ataphiel, which may be a variant form of Barattiel. Or also possibly Barakiel.]

In an early Ophitic (gnostic) system, Baruch was one of 3 angels(Ronove being another of the 3), sent forth by the Elohim "to succor the spirit in man." Because of this charge he has a unique understanding of man's soul in proportion to the body and is therefore, (along with Ronove who is more notorious for it), capable of mass possession.

(Much like 'light years' measured for journey. Equally fantastical heights of angels measured in 'parasangs' in ancient Persian lore.) Barya'il is the head of innumerable ranks of dwellers on high. As in the case of offers in the lower Heavens (by the angel Lawidh in the 2nd and by the angel Naya'il in the 4th), Barya'il offers the sufi "a kingdom such as no tongue can describe," but the offer of bribe is resisted, Abu Yazid remaining throughout his mir'aj (heavenly ascent) single-minded in his devotion to God.

Bat Qol is held by many rabbis to be a form of divine pronouncement in the latter days when prophecy had ceased. She, (for Bat Qol is female) is symbolized as a dove and may be compared, with the manifestation in this form, to the Holy Ghost in New Testament theophany. In a Syrian charm invocation (from: 'The Book of Protection'), Bat Qol is referred to as "the Voice which called out to Cain the murderer, 'why is thy brother Abel?'" (Said also to have been Uriel.) She is associated with Ariel and the Pistis Sophia.

Beelzebub (Belzebud, Beelzebuth, Belzaboul, Beelzeboul, Baalsebul, etc.) - ["God of Flies"]. Originally, a Syrian God, Beelzebub is in II Kings 1:3, a God of Ekron in Philistia. In the Kabbala, he is chief of the 9 evil hierarchies in the underworld. In Mathew 10:25, Mark 3:22, and Luke 40;15, Beelzebub is chief of the demons, "prince of the devils", but he is to be distinguished from Satan (just as his is in magic). In the 'Gospel of Nicodemus', Christ, during his 3 days in Hell, gives Beelzebub dominion over the underworld in gratitude for permitting him (Christ), over Satan's objections, to take Adam and other "Saints in prison" to Heaven. He is called both "Lord of Flies" & "Lord of Chaos". Dante identifies Beelzebub as Satan, while Milton ranks him "next to Satan in power and crime." In 'Paradise Lost' I, 157 Satan addresses Beelzebub as a "fallen cherub." In Hayley's edition of the 'Poetical Woks of John Milton', there is an illustration showing "Satan conferring with Belzebuth." On the contrary, in Gurdjieff's 'All and Everything, Beelzebub'z Tales to his Grandson', the hero is Beelzebub.

He is associated with primordial deities like Nox. [For more, See: pantheon-associations].
Beleth (Bileth, Bilet, Byleth) - Once of the order of Powers - an order which he hopes to return - Beleth is a fallen angel in Hell where he rules 85 legions of demons. He is a king, rides a pale horse, and is announced by a blare of trumpets. His sigil is shown in Waite, 'The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts', p. 169, and in 'The Lemegeton'. That Beleth was formerly in the order of powers "was proved after infinite research," reports Spence in 'An Encyclopaedia of Occultism,' p. 119.
Belhar - [Bernael].
Beli - One of the angelic guards of the gates of the North Wind. Works under the authority of Nuriel.
Beliael - Like Beli, an angelic guard of the North Wind under Nuriel.
Belial (Beliar, Berial) - In Jacobus de Teramo, 'Das Buch Beliel', this great fallen angel, often equated with Satan, is pictured presenting credentials to Solomon; also as dancing before the Hebrew king. Paul, in Corinthians 6:15, asks "What concord hath Christ with Belial?" Here, clearly, Paul regards Belial as chief of demons, or Satan. In 'Paradise Lost I', 490-492, "Belial came last; thatn whom a spirit more lewd/Fell not from Heav'n, or more gross to love/Vice it self." Later, in 'Paradise Lost II', 110-112, Milton speaks of Belial thus: "A fairer person lost not Heav'n; he seemed/ For dignitey compos'd and high exploit;" but hastens to add: "all was false and hollow." In 'Origin of the Names of Angels and Demons', Barton says of Belial that it is; "Possibly an old name of Sheol." In 'The Toilers of the Sea', Victor Hugo, drawing on occult sources, speaks of Belial as Hell's ambassador to Turkey. (Associating him with the Principalities, and Mastema.) As in the case of Bileth, it was "only after infinite research," reports Spence, (In 'An Encyclopaedia of Occultism', that Belial was "proved to have been formerly of the order of Virtues."
Beliar (Belial) - ["worthless"]. Interchangeable, in most sources, with Beliel. Beliar is mentioned in Deuteronomy, Judges, and I Samuel, always as evil, it's symbol or personification. In apocryphal writings Beliar is the prince of darkness, supreme adversary of God. In 'The Martyrdom of Isaiah' he is the angel of lawlessness. In 'The Gospel of Bartholomew', Bartholomew asks Belial to tell who he is, and Beliar answers: "At first I was called Satanel which is interpreted as messenger of God, but when I rejected the image of God my name was call'd Satanas, that is, an angel that keepeth Hell... I was formed the first angel... Michael second, Gabriel third, Uriel fourth, Raphael fifth, Nathanael sixth...These are the angels of vengeance that were first formed." In Waite, 'The Lemegeton', Beliar is said to have been created "next after Lucifer." As a fallen angel Beliar boasts that he "fell first among the worthier sort." Milton calls him: "a false titled son of God." According to the Schoolmen, Beliar was once partly of the order of angels and partly of the order of Virtues. However, Glasson, 'Greek Influence in Jewish Eschatology', argues that Beliar was never an angel and compares him to Ahriman, chief devil of Persian mythology, who was "independent of God and God's opposite equal." [See: Ahriman]. The tradition that Beliar is Hell's primate is carried on in the work of two writers, Thomas Mann and Aldous Huxley, both of whom regard Beliar as the exemplar and epitome of evil.
Belphegor (Belfagor, Baal-Peor) - ["Lord of opening", "Lord Baal of Mt. Phegor"]. A Moabite God of licentiousness who was once, according to Kabbalists, an angel of the order of Principalities. In Hell, Belphegor is the demon of discoveries and ingenious inventions. When invoked, he appears in the form of a young woman. Rufinus and Jerome identify Belphegor with Priapus. [See: Numbers 52:1-3]. De Plancy's 'Dictionnaire Infernal' indicates that certain dignitaries of the infernal empire served as special envoys or ambassadors to the nations of the Earth, and that Belphegor was accredited to France. Victor Hugo in 'The Toilers of the Sea' confirms De Plancy's accreditation of Belphegor to Paris. According to Milton, Belphegor is a variant of Nisroc, whom he lists as "of Principalities the Prime." Masters, 'Eros and Evil', suggests that Belphegor is the counterpart of the Hindu Rutrem, who is usually represented with an erect phallus. He is associated with feces and unclean orifices, hence his title as "Lord of Feces", and his followers common practice of kissing each other at the anus.
Belsal - An angel of the 1st hour of the night under the rulership of Gamiel.
Bel-se-buth - [Beelzebub].
Belzeboub (Beelzebub) - Dante identifies him with Satan.

In the view of De Plancy ('Dictionnaire Infernal III and IV) Belzebuth is not an angel but a demon, and the evil genius who governs the mouth of July (The opposite number to the angel Verchiel.) Equated with Beelzebub.

Also as a 10th subdivision of the order of Thrones, according to 'The Zohar' and de Mirville, 'Pneumatologie'. Most popular title for the watchers or Grigori; the angels who united with the daughters of men. The Bene Elim of Genesis 6:2 are these, (although sometimes equated with the order of the Ischim.) Of these 200 Grigori, Samyazel was chief of their order , although Azazel was the more popular of the lesser chiefs, and considered the one in the order of "most fault." In 'The Zohar', chief of the order is Hofniel. [For more, See: Elohim].
Bene ha-Elohim - ["Children of God"]. Angels, same as Bene elim (above). According to Rabbi Simeon ben Johai, those who translate ha-Elohim as "sons of God" are in error and should be cursed, as Elohim is a literal plural. (As in "children of the Gods"). [For more, See: Elohim]. In 'Targum of Onkelos and Jonathan', the title given to Bene ha-Elohim is "Sons of the Chiefs", or "Sons of the high ones".
Beniel - An angel invoked to command demons for conferring the gift of invisibility. Involved in Solomonic rites.
Benign Angel - In 'Midrash Aggada Exodus', the Benign Angel is Uriel; in 'The Zohar I', 93b, it is Gabriel.

After Kasbeel's fall (he sinned by turning away from God the moment he was created). he was renamed Kasbeel, "one who breaks his oath to God" or "The one who lies to God". Associated with Lucifer as the true name of the first created/first fallen. Symbolically, his name represents the bind to God that could not be broken by free will of the lesser angels. This 'oath' was broken when Beqa, being the greater angel, turned his back on God, allowing for those under him to do the same under his support. (Suggesting they were incapable of doubt before him.) In Wippler's 'Book of Megadriel', he is portrayed in this light as Lucifer, then Satan himself.
