Belial is the Sixty-eighth Spirit. He is a Mighty and a Powerful King, being created next after LUCIFER. He appears in the form of a beautiful angel sitting on a chariot of fire. He speaks with a comely voice declaring the he fell from the worthier sort that were before Michael, and other heavenly angels. His office is to distribute Presentations and Senatorships, etc., and to cause favor among friends and foes. He gives excellent Familiars and governs 50 Legions of Spirits. Note well that this King Belial must be given offerings, sacrifices, and gifts presented unto him by the Exorcist or else he will not give true answers unto his demands. But then he tarries not one hour in the truth, unless he be constrained by Divine Power.
