What are the languages of the beast and the warrior of light in The Chasm?

In The Chasm, the beast and the warrior of light both cry out in strange languages. The beast screams, “Baal jezeb ashnar mordol nuhl—keez gimbus molech nar­gul dazg!” The warrior of light cries, “Elyon miriel o aeron galad—chara domina beth charis o aleathes celebron!”  What are the languages, and what do the words mean?

One is the language of Heaven, the other the language of Hell. I made both of them up. There is no exact meaning, just one intended to portray holiness and grace and the other intended to reflect darkness and malice.

You may recognize the word “Elyon”, which I use in my other novels in reference to God. The name or title “Elyon” emphasizes God’s uniqueness and his supremacy above all others. It reminds us he is the Creator of Heaven and earth and the Owner of all. He is not merely mighty, but Almighty. He is the Sovereign Possessor and Controller of all things.
