Beelzebub, a translation of Baal-zebub. Both translate to Lord of Flies (more commonly), or Lord of the Dungheap. Because flies often gather around decaying corpses and as well spread disease, the term is symbolic for Lord of Death, Decay, Disease, etc. Beelzebub is either used as a synonym for Satan himself, or, as was made popular in Paradise Lost, as Satan's second-in-command devil.
You cast out devils by Beelzebub, chief of devils. (Accusation made toward Jesus, meaning he casts out devils by calling upon Satan.)

All previous definations invalid due to not knowing my mother-in-law. Evil incarnate. Essence of all that is despised and hated. Soul sucking, demonic possessing, revoker of liberty.
As SHE walked into the room the air was pulled from my lungs and I was left with only a lingering corrosive putrid smell. At that point I recalled countless books I read about the last moments of death. This would eventually be my last patriotic thought. My body tensed with muscles no longer capable of carrying hope. What is was hope anyway? My soul should have been hers but it was actually HERS. Then it was final, SHE had become my mother in law. Is there redemption in hell? Beelzebub offers none.
