  1. Abaddon

    The Hebrew term Abaddon, and its Greek equivalent Apollyon, appear in the Bible as a place of destruction and an angel, respectively. In the Hebrew Bible, abaddon is used with reference to a dwelling place of the dead, often appearing alongside the better-known term שאול. In the New Testament Book of Revelation, an angel called Abaddon is shown as the king of an army of locusts; his name is first transcribed in Greek, and then translated. The Latin Vulgate, as well as the Douay Rheims Bible, has an additional note, "in Latin Exterminans", exterminans being the Latin word for "destroyer".
