In Greek mythology, were imaginary demons, half men and half goats, believed by the superstitious to haunt forests and groves. The Hebrew word translates satyrs in Isaiah 13:21 34:14 , means hairy, shaggy creatures, such as wild goats, or perhaps monsters of the ape family. It is translated "goats" in Leviticus 4:24 , and "devils" in Leviticus 17:7 . The gambols of these wild animals on the ruins of Babylon mark is as an uninhabited and lonely waste. See APE .
