Other Gods

El Eljon & El Sabaoth

Names Of People

Names Of Places

Angels & Demons (cftabulated lists including later books & grimoires)

Wherever the KJV shows "Belial", YLT translates it as "'worthlessness" (e.g., "children of Belial" as "sons of worthlessness,") whilst the Tanach calls them "base fellows".

Astrology & Divination

As well as the obvious worship of the sun through the god Chemosh / Shamash, there are numerous references to demonstrate that the ancient peoples were fully aware of the seasonal motions of planets and stars, for as with most cultures they imbued stellar phenomena with personalities and characteristics with which to explain earthly events, though such 'divining' was later banned even though still used as a means of prophesy by their own priests, who also interpreted dreams and visions as happens today. I've tried to keep this section as separate as possible from those above, though there is a very small overlap. Urim & Thummim were dice used for divination.
