Easton's Bible Dictionary
The Greek form, rendered "devil" in the Authorized Version of the New Testament. Daemons are spoken of as spiritual beings (Matthew 8:16
) at enmity with God, and as having a certain power over man (James 2:19
; Revelation 16:14
). They recognize our Lord as the Son of God (Matthew 8:20
; Luke 4:41
). They belong to the number of those angels that "kept not their first estate," "unclean spirits," "fallen angels," the angels of the devil (Matthew 25:41
; Revelation 12:7-9
). They are the "principalities and powers" against which we must "wrestle" (Ephesians 6:12
