Please do not let my lord regard this son of Belial, Nabal, for as his name is, so is he. Nabal is his name and folly is with him. But I your servant didn’t see the young men of my lord whom you sent. Bible

“sons of Belial.” This is a designation of sons of the Devil. [For more on sons of Belial, see commentary on 1 Sam. 2:12. For more on the unforgivable sin and children of the Devil, see commentary on Matt. 12:31].

“Nabal.” The word “Nabal” means “fool,” but there are several different words for “fool” in Hebrew. “Nabal” refers to a committed, unrepentant fool.
