(Strong's #1845 — Noun Masculine — exorkistes — ex-or-kis-tace' )

denotes (a) "one who administers an oath;" (b) "an exorcist" (akin to exorkizo, "to adjure," from orkos, "an oath"), "one who empolys a formula of conjuration for the expulsion of demons," Acts 19:13 . The practice of "exorcism" was carried on by strolling Jews, who used their power in the recitation of particular names.
