Devil
Jump to: Smith'sATSISBEEaston'sWebster'sConcordanceThesaurusGreekHebrewLibrarySubtopicsTerms
Easton's Bible Dictionary
(Gr. diabolos), a slanderer, the arch-enemy of man's spiritual interest (Job 1:6; Revelation 2:10; Zechariah 3:1). He is called also "the accuser of the brethen" (Revelation 12:10).

In Leviticus 17:7 the word "devil" is the translation of the Hebrew sair, meaning a "goat" or "satyr" (Isaiah 13:21; 34:14), alluding to the wood-daemons, the objects of idolatrous worship among the heathen.

In Deuteronomy 32:17 and Psalm 106:37 it is the translation of Hebrew shed, meaning lord, and idol, regarded by the Jews as a "demon," as the word is rendered in the Revised Version.

In the narratives of the Gospels regarding the "casting out of devils" a different Greek word (daimon) is used. In the time of our Lord there were frequent cases of demoniacal possession (Matthew 12:25-30; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 4:35; 10:18, etc.).

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) The Evil One; Satan, represented as the tempter and spiritual of mankind.

2. (n.) An evil spirit; a demon.

3. (n.) A very wicked person; hence, any great evil.

4. (n.) An expletive of surprise, vexation, or emphasis, or, ironically, of negation.

5. (n.) A dish, as a bone with the meat, broiled and excessively peppered; a grill with Cayenne pepper.

6. (n.) A machine for tearing or cutting rags, cotton, etc.

7. (v. t.) To make like a devil; to invest with the character of a devil.
