The Assyrian god of agriculture, in whose temple king Sennacherib was worshipping when he was assassinated by his own sons in revenge for the destruction of Babylon.

The god of the Philistines. The ark of the covenant was brought into the temple of Dagon after being captured. The statue of Dagon fell apart before the ark. The Philistines also believed that Dagon had delivered Samson, their enemy to them.

The “detestable god of the Ammonites.” The children of the Ammonites were sacrificed in the fire to this god.

Star god of pagan Israel.

The “vile god of the Moabites.”
Solomon built a high place for Chemosh. Jeremiah said that, “Chemosh will go into exile, together with his priests and officials.”

The Israelites served the Baals and Ashtorerths. She was the “vile goddess of the Sidonians.” Venerated as the mother-goddess of fertility. She was often set up next to the altar of the LORD. She may be the “Queen of Heaven” referred to in the book of Jeremiah.

The god of the Moabites. Israel joined in worshipping the Baal of Peor. They bowed down and offered sacrifices as well as committing sexual immorality with pagan women. God destroyed all those who followed this god. Considered a lifeless god.

Israelites prostituted themselves to this god. A temple in honor of Baal-Berith was set up in Shechem.

The god of Ekron. King Ahaziah tried to consult Baal-Zebub via his messengers to see if he would recover from his injuries. Elijah the prophet rebuked him and said that he would die for trying to consult with this god. (Note how Baal-Zebub is very similar to Beelzebub- another name for Satan.)

General term for the numerous baals that were worshipped throughout Israel and the surrounding nations. The “people burned incense to Baal…to the sun and moon, to the constellations and to all the starry hosts.” The book of Psalms says, “they sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan and the land was desecrated by their blood.” The Israelites thought that they could serve the baals and also be protected by the LORD and to worship the LORD at the same time. Jeremiah says that they built high places of Topheth “to burn their sons and daughters in the fire – something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.” The people of Judah followed, consulted, and worshipped the sun, moon, and all the stars of heaven. From the baals came the incense altars and the Asherah poles.

“The children gather wood , the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread to the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger.” The Israelites insisted on burning incense to the Queen of Heaven and making cakes like her image and pouring out drink offerings. (Similar to the Roman Catholic practice of venerating Mary and her elevated status in the church.)

god/goddess of Babylon

god of Cuthah, solar deity, pestilence, destruction

goddess of Hamath, the goddes of fate

goddess of the Avvites, “the barker”,  form of a dog

god of the Avvites, prince of darkness, a donkey

god of the Sepharvites who burned their children in the fire as an offering.
Most likely the sun god.

goddess of the Sepharvites who burned their children in the fire as an offering. Most likely the moon goddess.

An idol that the priests rejoiced over. It was taken from them to Assyria.

Israelites prostituted themselves to these idols. “They sacrificed to demons which are not God. They are gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your father’s did not fear.”

When Paul healed a man that couldn’t walk from birth, a crowd gathered and thought that the gods had come down in human form. They called Paul Hermes because he was the chief speaker and Barnabas they called Zeus. The priest of Zeus whose temple was outside the city brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them. Jupiter is the roman equivalent of the greek Zeus and Mercury is the roman equivalent of the greek Hermes.

After an angel of the LORD showed Ezekiel the figures and drawings of crawling things and animals sketched within God’s temple, he showed him the women mourning for the goddess Tammuz and the men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces to the east, bowing down to the sun in the east.

“The city clerk quieted the crowd and said, “Men of Ephesus, doesn’t all the world know that the city of Ephesus is the guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image, which fell from heaven?’ Diana is the roman equivalent of the greek Artemis.

He is the angel of the abyss, the fallen star, and the king of the locusts of agony. Apollyon was given the key to the shaft of the abyss.

He is the serpent that tempted Eve and caused the whole world to sin. He is the fallen star that brought with him one-third of the hosts of heaven. Considered to be the ancient serpent and his subordinates probably have reptilian like qualities. Some of his titles are “prince of demons”, “father of lies”, “prince of the power of the air”, “leviathin” and “the great dragon”. He is against God and his people and everything that is good. He will be thrown into the lake of fire with the beast and false prophet at the end of ages.

Leviticus 17:7
They must no longer offer any of their sacrifices to the goat idols to whom they prostitute themselves. This is to be a lasting ordinance for them and for the generations to come.’

Deuteronomy 4:16-20
so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below. And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. But as for you, the Lord took you and brought you out of the iron-smelting furnace, out of Egypt, to be the people of his inheritance, as you now are.

Deuteronomy 12:31-32
You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.
See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

2 Kings 17:33
They worshiped the Lord, but they also served their own gods in accordance with the customs of the nations from which they had been brought.

2 Kings 21:3-6
He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had destroyed; he also erected altars to Baal and made an Asherah pole, as Ahab king of Israel had done. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. He built altars in the temple of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, “In Jerusalem I will put my Name.” In the two courts of the temple of the Lord, he built altars to all the starry hosts. He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger.

2 Kings 23:5
He did away with the idolatrous priests appointed by the kings of Judah to burn incense on the high places of the towns of Judah and on those around Jerusalem—those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun and moon, to the constellations and to all the starry hosts.

2 Kings 23:11
He removed from the entrance to the temple of the Lord the horses that the kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun. They were in the court near the room of an official named Nathan-Melek. Josiah then burned the chariots dedicated to the sun.

Psalm 82
A psalm of Asaph.
God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:
“How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?
Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
They walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
you are all sons of the Most High.’
But you will die like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”
Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.

Psalm 106:36-38
They worshiped their idols,
which became a snare to them.
They sacrificed their sons
and their daughters to false gods.
They shed innocent blood,
the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,
and the land was desecrated by their blood.

Psalm 81:9
You shall have no foreign god among you;
you shall not worship any god other than me.
Hosea 8:4
They set up kings without my consent;
they choose princes without my approval.
With their silver and gold
they make idols for themselves
to their own destruction.
Ezekiel 20:30
“Therefore say to the Israelites: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Will you defile yourselves the way your ancestors did and lust after their vile images?
Jeremiah 44:17
We will certainly do everything we said we would: We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and will pour out drink offerings to her just as we and our ancestors, our kings and our officials did in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. At that time we had plenty of food and were well off and suffered no harm.

Hosea 11:2
But the more they were called,
the more they went away from me.
They sacrificed to the Baals
and they burned incense to images.
Amos 8:14
Those who swear by the sin of Samaria–
who say, ‘As surely as your god lives, Dan,’
or, ‘As surely as the god of Beersheba lives’–
they will fall, never to rise again.”
Zephaniah 1:5
those who bow down on the roofs
to worship the starry host,
those who bow down and swear by the Lord
and who also swear by Molek,
