term satan is a noun from a verb meaning primarily to obstruct oppose as it is found in Numbers 2222 1 Samuel 294 Psalms 1096 6HaSatan is traditionally translated as the accuser or the adversary The definite article ha English the is used to show that this is a title bestowed on a being versus the name of a being Thus this being would be referred to as the satan 7 Thirteen occurrences HaSatan with the definite article occurs 13 times in the Masoretic Text in two books of the Hebrew Bible Job ch 1–2 10×8 and Zechariah 31–2 3× 9 Satan without the definite article is used in 10 instances of which two are translated diabolos in the Septuagint and Satan in the King James Version KJV 1 Chronicles 211 Satan stood up against Israel KJV or And there standeth up an adversary against Israel Youngs Literal Translation10 Psalm 1096b and let Satan stand at his right hand KJV11 or let an accuser stand at his right hand ESV etc The other eight instances of satan without the definite article are traditionally translated in Greek Latin and English as an adversary etc and taken to be humans or obedient angels Numbers 222232 and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against

unto me 1 Kings 54 Solomon writes to Hiram there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent 1 Kings 1114 And the LORD stirred up an adversary unto Solomon Hadad the Edomite12 1 Kings 1123 And God stirred

Illustration was made c 1821 At the beginning of the book Job is a good person who revered God and turned away from evil Job 11 and has therefore been rewarded by God When the angels present themselves to God Satan comes as well God informs Satan about Jobs blameless morally upright character Between Job 19–10 and 24–5 Satan points out that God has given Job everything that a man could want so of course Job would be loyal to God Satan suggests that Jobs faith would collapse if all he has been given even his health were to be taken away from him God therefore gives Satan permission to test Job 13 In the end Job remains faithful and righteous and there is the implication that Satan is shamed in his defeat 14 Second Temple period See also Angra Mainyu Some scholars see contact with religious dualism in Babylon and early Zoroastrianism in particular as influencing Second Temple Judaism and consequently early Christianity 1516 Subsequent development of Satan as a deceiver has parallels with the evil spirit in Zoroastrianism known as the Lie who directs forces of darkness 17 Septuagint In the Septuagint the Hebrew haSatan in Job and Zechariah is translated by the Greek word diabolos slanderer the same word in the Greek New Testament from which the English word devil is derived Where satan is used to refer to human enemies in the Hebrew Bible such as Hadad the Edomite and Rezon the Syrian the word is left untranslated but transliterated in the Greek as satan a neologism in Greek 18 Dead Sea scrolls and Pseudepigrapha In Enochic Judaism the concept of Satan being an opponent of God and a chiefly evil figure among demons seems to have taken root in Jewish pseudepigrapha during the Second Temple period19 particularly in the apocalypses 20 The Book of Enoch contains references to Satariel thought also to be Sataniel and Satanel etymology dating back to Babylonian origins The similar spellings mirror that of his angelic brethren Michael Raphael Uriel and Gabriel previous to the fall from Heaven The Second Book of Enoch also called the Slavonic Book of Enoch contains references to a Watcher Grigori called Satanael 21 It is a pseudepigraphic text of an uncertain date and unknown authorship The text describes Satanael as being the prince of the Grigori who was cast out of heaven22 and an evil spirit who knew the difference between what was righteous and sinful 23 A similar story is found in the book of 1 Enoch however in that book the leader of the Grigori is called Semjâzâ In the Book of Wisdom the devil is represented as the being who brought death into the world 24 In the Book of Jubilees Mastema induces God to test Abraham through the sacrifice of Isaac He is identical to Satan in both name and nature 25 Rabbinical Judaism In Judaism the term satan used since its earliest biblical contexts to refer to a human opponent 26 Occasionally the term has been used to suggest evil influence opposing human beings as in the Jewish exegesis of the Yetzer hara evil inclination Genesis 65 Micaiahs lying spirit in 1 Kings 2222 is sometimes related Thus Satan is personified as a character in three different places of the Tanakh serving as an accuser Zechariah 31–2 a seducer 1 Chronicles 211 or as a heavenly persecutor who is among the sons of God Job 21 In any case Satan is always subordinate to the power of God27 having a role in the divine plan Satan is rarely mentioned in Tannaitic literature but is found in Babylonian aggadah 20 In medieval Judaism the Rabbis rejected these Enochic literary works into the Biblical canon making every attempt to root them out 19 Traditionalists and philosophers in medieval Judaism adhered to rational theology rejecting any belief in rebel or fallen angels and viewing evil as abstract 28 The Yetzer hara evil inclination Genesis 65 is a more common motif for evil in rabbinical texts Rabbinical scholarship on the Book of Job generally follows the Talmud and Maimonides as identifying the Adversary in the prologue of Job as a metaphor 29 In Hasidic Judaism the Kabbalah presents Satan as an agent of God whose function is to tempt one into sin then turn around and accuse the sinner on high vague The Chasidic Jews of the 18th century associated haSatan with Baal Davar 30 Modern Judaism Judaism today sees the concept of Satan in multiple different forms In Reform Judaism Satan is seen more greatly incorporating his Talmudic equatability as the yezter hara and is seen as the symbolic representation of innate human qualities such as selfishness31 whereas Conservative Judaism maintains the traditional view of Satan as an agent of God though tends to stray away the Talmuds equation of the being with the yetzer hara and the Angel of Death 32Orthodox Judaism on the other hand outwardly embraces Talmudic teachings on Satan and involves Satan in religious life far more inclusively than other sects Satan is mentioned explicitly in some daily prayers including during Shacharit and certain postmeal benedictions as described in Talmud33 and the Jewish Code of Law34 for example Christianity Main article Devil in Christianity See also War in Heaven “ If he was once as handsome as he now is ugly and despite that raised his brows against his Maker one can understand how every sorrow has its source in him Dante in Inferno Canto XXXIV Verse translation by Allen Mandelbaum ” Satan is trapped in the frozen central zone in the Ninth Circle of Hell Canto XXXIV Gustave Doré Satan is traditionally identified as the serpent who tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit as he was in Judaism 35 Thus Satan has often been depicted as a serpent Christian agreement with this can be found in the works of Justin Martyr in Chapters 45 and 79 of Dialogue with Trypho where Justin identifies Satan and the serpent 36 Other early church fathers to mention this identification include Theophilus and Tertullian 37 From the fourth century Lucifer is sometimes used in Christian theology to refer to Satan as a result of identifying the fallen son of the dawn of Isaiah 1412 with the accuser of other passages in the Old Testament citation needed For most Christians Satan is believed to be an angel who rebelled against God In the New Testament he is called the ruler of the demons Matthew 1224 the ruler of the world and the god of this world 2 Corinthians 44 The Book of Revelation describes how Satan was cast out of Heaven having great anger and waging war against those who obey Gods commandments Ultimately Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire 38 The Devil depicted in The Temptation of Christ by Ary Scheffer 1854 The early Christian church encountered opposition from pagans such as Celsus who claimed that it is blasphemy to say that the greatest God has an adversary who constrains his capacity to do good and said that Christians impiously divide the kingdom of God creating a rebellion in it as if there were opposing factions within the divine including one that is hostile to God 39 Illustration for John Miltons Paradise Lost by Gustave Doré 1886 showing Lucifers descent and his deterioration into Satan Terminology In Christianity there are many synonyms for Satan The most common English synonym for Satan is devil which descends from Middle English devel from Old English dēofol that in turn represents an early Germanic borrowing of Latin diabolus also the source of diabolical This in turn was borrowed from Greek diabolos slanderer from diaballein to slander dia across through ballein to hurl 40 In the New Testament Satan occurs more than 30 times in passages alongside diabolos slanderer referring to the same person or thing as Satan 41 Beelzebub meaning Lord of Flies is the contemptuous name given in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament to a Philistine god whose original name has been reconstructed as most probably Baal Zabul meaning Baal the Prince 42 This pun was later used to refer to Satan as well The Book of Revelation twice refers to the dragon that ancient serpent who is called the devil and Satan 129 202 The Book of Revelation also refers to the deceiver from which is derived the common epithet the great deceiver 43 Islam Main article Devil Islam See also Azazel § Azazel in Islam Shaitan شيطان is the equivalent of Satan in Islam While Shaitan شيطان from the root šṭn شطن is an adjective meaning astray or distant sometimes translated as devil that can be applied to both man alins الإنس and jinn those can be classified into fallen angels unbelievers among the jinn and pagan deities 44Iblis Arabic pronunciation ˈibliːs is the personal name of the Devil who is mentioned in the Quranic account of Genesis 45 According to the Quran Iblis the Arabic name used disobeyed an order from God to bow to Adam and as a result Iblis was forced out of heaven However he was given respite from further punishment until the day of judgment Shaitan can also refer to devilish temptations inside the mind described as whisperings waswās 46 Iblis top right on the picture refuses to prostrate before the newly created Adam According to the Quran God created the first satan Iblis akin to the jinn out of fire The primary characteristic of the Devil besides hubris is that he has no power other than the power to cast evil suggestions into the hearts of men and women The Quran says that Satan was among the angels whom God ordered to bow down to Adam after his creation it says in 1850 And mention when We said to the angels Prostrate to Adam and they prostrated except for Iblees He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange Whether Satan was actually an angel or a Jinn whom God elevated to the angelic assembly is a matter of debate among Muslim scholars Some scholars such as Ibn Abbas believe that Satan was actually an angel whom God created out of fire He was the most worshipful and knowledgeable of angels Thus when the Quran identifies Satan as a Jinn it means that he belonged to a class of fiery creatures called Jinn which encompasses both heavenly Jinn fiery angels and earthly ordinary Jinn 47 Such a notion is evocative of the biblical seraphim a rank of angels looking like burning fire Long before Adam was created traditions narrate earthly jinn roamed the earth and spread corruption upon it God sent an army of angels under the leadership of Satan to fight them After his victory Satans ego conflated he thought he was better than any other creature and thus Gods favorite Gods creation of Man and his order to the angels to venerate him was a blow to Satans pride While all the angels obeyed God and bowed down to Adam Satan disobeyed haughtily saying 3876 I am better than him You created me from fire and created him from clay Consequently God expelled Satan from Heaven with the latter promising to lure mankind into disbelief and evil as an act of revenge directed towards Adam 48 Also some scholars call Satan The Peacock of Angels referencing his foolish hubris 49 On the other hand other scholars believe that there are no such things as heavenly Jinn or fiery angels and thus Satan was not an angel He was a Jinn whom God elevated to Heaven as a reward for his worship and righteousness This is also used to explain why Satan managed to refuse Gods order as angels obey Gods orders without questioning or complaining 50 As for the angels they prostrated before Adam to show their homage and obedience to God However Satan adamant in his view that man is inferior and unlike angels was given the ability to choose made a choice of not obeying God This caused him to be expelled by God a fact that Satan blamed on humanity Hasan of Basra an eminent Muslim theologian who lived in the 7th century A D was quoted as saying Iblis was not an angel even for the time of an eye wink He is the origin of Jinn as Adam is of Mankind 51 It was after Satans disobedience of God that the title of Shaitan was given to him which can be roughly translated as Enemy Rebel Evil or Devil Shaitan then claims that if the punishment for his act of disobedience is to be delayed until the Day of Judgment then he will divert many of Adams own descendants from the straight path during his period of respite 52 God accepts the claims of Iblis and guarantees recompense to Iblis and his followers in the form of Hellfire In order to test mankind and jinn alike Allah allowed Iblis to roam the earth to attempt to convert others away from his path 53 He was sent to earth along with Adam and Eve eventually luring them into eating the fruit from the forbidden tree 54 Sufi view of Satan Sufism teaches that people should love God without expecting anything in return 55 Consequently unrequited love is regarded by Sufis as that perfect type of love because the pining lover expects nothing in return Thus some Sufis see Satan as the paradigm of love and the perfect lover 56 Despite the traditional interpretation of Satans fall from Grace as an act of excessive pride and rebellion against God some Sufis see it as an act of selfsacrifice for Gods love Satan refused to bow down to Adam out of his uncompromising monotheism and devotion he refused to venerate anything or anyone but God AlGhazali a wellknown medieval Sufi Muslim theologian narrates Encountering Eblis on the slopes of Sinai Moses hailed him and asked “O Eblis why did you not prostrate before Adam” Eblis replied “Heaven forbid that anyone worship anything but the One This command was a test ”5758 Satan believed that God ordered him to bow down to Adam to test his love for him Satan should maintain his love for God at any cost So even if the cost of Satans refusal to prostrate before Adam is falling from Grace he should proceed with it out of his unconditional love for God 58Abdul Karim Jili a Muslim Sufi saint believes that after the Day of Judgement Hell will cease to exist and Satan will be back to the service of God as one of his cherished angels 59 Satan as a tempter Besides the personified notion of Satan Islam views Satan as temptations in the mind and desire to do evil Iblis is accordingly also a cosmic force leading humans and jinn astray from good and making them to shayāṭīn as well 60 But there is still a distinction assumed between the satanic temptations and the murmurings of the lower self Nafs The lower self as such wants the person to do a specific task or to fulfill a desire while the inspirations of Satan wants the person to do evil in general and returns with another suggestion after the person resisted 61 Yazidism An alternative name for the main deity in the tentatively IndoEuropean pantheon of the Yazidis Melek Taus is Shaitan 62 However rather than being Satanic Yazidism can be understood as a remnant of a preIslamic Middle Eastern IndoEuropean religion andor a ghulat Sufi movement founded by Shaykh Adi Because Melek Taus similar to the devil refused to bow down before humanity Christians and Muslims consider Melek Taus to be Satan and based on this belief they claim that the Yazidis are devilworshippers In fact there is no entity in Yazidism which represents evil in opposition to God such dualism is rejected by Yazidis 63 Baháí Faith In the Baháí Faith Satan is not regarded as an independent evil power as he is in some faiths but signifies the lower nature of humans `AbdulBahá explains This lower nature in man is symbolized as Satan the evil ego within us not an evil personality outside 6465 All other evil spirits described in various faith traditionssuch as fallen angels demons and jinnsare also metaphors for the base character traits a human being may acquire and manifest when he turns away from God 66 Satanism Main article Satanism Eliphas Levis image of Baphomet is embraced by LaVeyan Satanists as a symbol of duality fertility and the powers of darkness serving as the namesake of their primary insignia The Sigil of Baphomet Within Satanism two major trends exist theistic Satanism and atheistic Satanism both having different views regarding the essence of Satan Theistic Satanism Theistic Satanism commonly referred to as devil worship67 holds the view that Satan is an actual deity or a force to revere or worship that individuals may contact and supplicate to6869 and represents loosely affiliated or independent groups and cabals which hold the belief that Satan is a real entity70 rather than an archetype Among nonSatanists much modern Satanic folklore did not originate in the beliefs or practices of theistic or atheistic Satanists instead it originated in a mixture of medieval Christian folk beliefs political or sociological conspiracy theories and contemporary urban legends 71727374 An example is the Satanic ritual abuse scare of the 1980s beginning with the memoir Michelle Remembers which depicted Satanism as a vast conspiracy of elites with a predilection for child abuse and human sacrifice 7273 This genre frequently describes Satan as physically incarnating in order to receive worship 74 Atheistic Satanism Atheistic Satanism most commonly referred to as LaVeyan Satanism holds that Satan does not exist as a literal anthropomorphic entity but rather as a symbol of a cosmos which Satanists perceive to be permeated and motivated by a force that has been given many names by humans over the course of time In this religion Satan is not viewed or depicted as a hubristic irrational and fraudulent creature but is rather seen as being Prometheuslike in terms of attributes symbolizing liberty and the like To adherents he also serves as a conceptual framework and an external metaphorical projection of the Satanists highest personal potential 757677787980 In his essay Satanism The Feared Religion the current High Priest of the Church of Satan Peter H Gilmore further expounds that Satan is a symbol of Man living as his prideful carnal nature dictates The reality behind Satan is simply the dark evolutionary force of entropy that permeates all of nature and provides the drive for survival and propagation inherent in all living things Satan is not a conscious entity to be worshiped rather a reservoir of power inside each human to be tapped at will 81 LaVeyan Satanists embrace the original etymological meaning of the word Satan Hebrew שָּׂטָן satan meaning adversary According to Peter H Gilmore The Church of Satan has chosen Satan as its primary symbol because in Hebrew it means adversary opposer one to accuse or question We see ourselves as being these Satans the adversaries opposers and accusers of all spiritual belief systems that would try to hamper enjoyment of our life as a human being 82 See also Cernunnos Hades Hel Manannan Manawyddan Poseidon Prince of Darkness Satan Set mythology Tammuz Wild Hunt Notes httpjewishencyclopedia
