bitter contrition

Smith's Bible Dictionary

(death), (Jeremiah 50:2) identical with the famous Babylonian Bel or Belus, the word being probably at first a mere epithet of the god, which by degrees superseded his proper appellation.

ATS Bible Dictionary

An idol of the Babylonians, representing probably the planet Mars, Jeremiah 50:2. The names of Babylonish kings were also sometimes compounded with this name, as Evil-Merodach and Merodach-Baladan, Isaiah 39:1, who is also called Berodach-Baladan in 2 Kings 20:12.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Death; slaughter, the name of a Babylonian god, probably the planet Mars (Jeremiah 50:2), or it may be another name of Bel, the guardian divinity of Babylon. This name frequently occurs as a surname to the kings of Assyria and Babylon.
