  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  adversary;  accuser.  When  used  as  a  proper  name  the  Hebrew  word 
  so  rendered  has  the  article  "the  adversary"  (Job  1:6-12;  2:1-7). 
  In  the  New  Testament  it  is  used  as  interchangeable  with 
  Diabolos,  or  the  devil,  and  is  so  used  more  than  thirty  times. 
  He  is  also  called  "the  dragon,"  "the  old  serpent"  (Rev.  12:9; 
  20:2);  "the  prince  of  this  world"  (John  12:31;  14:30);  "the 
  prince  of  the  power  of  the  air"  (Eph.  2:2);  "the  god  of  this 
  world"  (2  Cor.  4:4);  "the  spirit  that  now  worketh  in  the 
  children  of  disobedience"  (Eph.  2:2).  The  distinct  personality 
  of  Satan  and  his  activity  among  men  are  thus  obviously 
  recognized.  He  tempted  our  Lord  in  the  wilderness  (Matt. 
  4:1-11).  He  is  "Beelzebub,  the  prince  of  the  devils"  (12:24).  He 
  is  "the  constant  enemy  of  God,  of  Christ,  of  the  divine  kingdom, 
  of  the  followers  of  Christ,  and  of  all  truth;  full  of  falsehood 
  and  all  malice,  and  exciting  and  seducing  to  evil  in  every 
  possible  way."  His  power  is  very  great  in  the  world.  He  is  a 
  "roaring  lion,  seeking  whom  he  may  devour"  (1  Pet.  5:8).  Men  are 
  said  to  be  "taken  captive  by  him"  (2  Tim.  2:26).  Christians  are 
  warned  against  his  devices"  (2  Cor.  2:11),  and  called  on  to 
  resist"  him  (James  4:7).  Christ  redeems  his  people  from  "him 
  that  had  the  power  of  death,  that  is  the  devil"  (Heb.  2:14). 
  Satan  has  the  "power  of  death,"  not  as  lord,  but  simply  as

  From  THE  DEVIL'S  DICTIONARY  ((C)1911  Released  April  15  1993)  [devils]: 
  SATAN,  n.  One  of  the  Creator's  lamentable  mistakes,  repented  in 
  sashcloth  and  axes.  Being  instated  as  an  archangel,  Satan  made 
  himself  multifariously  objectionable  and  was  finally  expelled  from 
  Heaven.  Halfway  in  his  descent  he  paused,  bent  his  head  in  thought  a 
  moment  and  at  last  went  back  "There  is  one  favor  that  I  should  like 
  to  ask,"  said  he 
  "Name  it." 
  "Man,  I  understand,  is  about  to  be  created.  He  will  need  laws." 
  "What,  wretch!  you  his  appointed  adversary,  charged  from  the  dawn 
  of  eternity  with  hatred  of  his  soul  --  you  ask  for  the  right  to  make 
  his  laws?" 
  "Pardon;  what  I  have  to  ask  is  that  he  be  permitted  to  make  them
