2Corinthians 6:15 - Satana to Belial

i don't have any idea why there is a difference between Satana and Beliar, but here's a few variant spellings from different Greek texts that might be of interest to throw into the midst:





if you know Estrangela, you can see how BELIAB, BELIAL, and perhaps even BELIAN (if the nun was not in sophit form) could each be misconstrued with the last letter. Beliar - not so much... i don't know that it helps, since we don't have any Peshitta texts that actually contain such a variant term, but the lamadh, bet, and nun could indeed be mistaken for one another - especially the lamadh and nun, depending on height -- and i've seen an instance or so of misreading between a lamadh and a bet accounting for a disparate reading between the Greek and Aramaic, so that is possible, as well.
