 1 Kings 12:33, "on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, in the month 
that HE ALONE HAD DEVISED". 

A more accurate translation of the highlighted biblical words above -- )a$er bada)
milibo  -- would be "that he had invented in his heart" ; the same phrase occurs also in Neh. 6:8.
 
BD -- "empty, idle, (invented) talk" as in Job 11:3 and elsewhere may well originate from the above.
