Jezebel - A woman infamous for her idolatry, and cruelty, andsorcery, and filthiness. Eth - baal - Called Ithbalus, or Itobalusin heathen writers. So she was of an heathenish and idolatrous race. Suchas the kings and people of Israel were expressly forbidden to marry.Baal - The idol which the Sidonians worshipped, which is thought to beHercules.
