But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “This man does not cast out demons except by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons.” Bible other translations

“Beelzebul.” The Greek is Beelzeboul (#954 Βεελζεβούλ), which gets put into English as “Beelzebul.” “Beelzeboul” is “lord of the dunghill.” This comes from the Hebrew zebul (dung, a dunghill). [For more on the name Beelzebul and other names of the Slanderer (the Devil), see Appendix 14: “Names of the Devil”.]
